The 38-year-old star's intimate moments with Rick Salomon were released at the height of her 'Simple Life' fame in 2004 and though she recalls being portrayed as a "villain" as a result, she thinks if the scandal had happened in the wake of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, she wouldn't have been painted in such a negative light.

She told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "Back then, people were acting like I was the bad person or the villain.
"Today, if that happened, whoever did that to the person would be [vilified]."

The 'Stars are Blind' hitmaker was devastated when the tape leaked online because she knew it would have an impact on her reputation for "the rest of [her] life".

She said: "As a little girl, I always looked up to Princess Diana and women like that who I respected so much.

"And I felt that when that man put out that tape, it basically took that away from me because, for the rest of my life, people are going to judge me and think of me in a certain way just because of a private moment with someone that [I] trusted and loved.

"It's not something that I would ever want to be known for."

Paris used to choose not to comment on gossip about herself but now feels "ready" to share her own versions of events.

She said: "I now feel comfortable enough with myself to tell my story. I wasn't really before.

"My mom and my dad always told me, 'Never dignify something with a response.' Back then, there was no social media. So I couldn't just go on there [and set the record straight] ...

" I never stuck up for myself or said anything because my parents said, 'You're just going to draw more attention to something. Even if it's a lie, just don't pay attention to it. Your family and your friends know the real you.' "

The 'Empire State of Mind' hitmaker is set to return as host for the second year in a row at the 2020 ceremony and is drawing on her own experiences as a guest at the event to work on creating a welcoming atmosphere.

She said: "I know what I normally feel in that room, which is left out and a little bit uncomfortable. I wanted to create this lovefest where we could celebrate each other's greatness and just have fun.

"We're all trying to make our way through a very chaotic time, and we all just need a little celebration -- to feel like we're with friends, like somebody actually cares.

The 38-year-old star will be relieved to have more time to prepare for the 2020 ceremony as she was drafted in at the last minute for this year's show.

She told Billboard magazine: "It was last minute. [The Academy] knew they were looking for a new host. I don't think they expected it to be an artist. I want to say it was November, so it was pretty fast to pull together.

"We were like, 'This is either going to be really bad or really good.' Fortunately, it was a beautiful thing. I was like, 'I'm never doing that again.' And then they're like, 'But we really want you to do it again.'"

Alicia is hoping to present the ceremony as a modern day variety show.

Asked what she's looking to for inspiration, she said: "People who have created these beautiful variety-style shows, like Carol Burnett, or Sammy Davis Jr., or Dean Martin. Nobody does that anymore.

"They had this cool mixture of musician and artist and comedian, so it mixed all of these worlds together in this casual [way], while they're holding, like, a whiskey. I want to see how to modernise that."
