“After watching the lyrics come true with Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, and Britney Spears, I decided to pull the song from the Web,” says singer/songwriter Scott Wilson of “She Won’t Stop,” his ode to fame for fame’s sake.

“Everybody’s wet dream/ Save it for the big scene/ It’s headed for the big screen… Doesn’t make a difference to me.”

Last month, “She Won’t Stop” hit number one on the Big 50 list at iacmusic.com.

“Independent Artists Company is a website that features indie musicians and has a number of radio stations on the site,” says Wilson. “You can sell your downloads with no upfront cost, and you get 100 percent of the profits, unlike on Snocap, which takes 39 cents out of every sale.” The Big 50 is a list of songs on the IAC site with the highest traffic.

“The reason I pulled the song was because I thought that nothing good could come from profiting off someone else’s suffering,” says Wilson. “I was looking at a picture of Paris Hilton in the back of a police car crying, and I know that inspires laughter in a lot of people, but for some reason I felt really sorry for her.…

“I personally think that there’s a spiritual dimension to all of this. Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan, and even Paris Hilton were studying Kabbalah shortly before all this stuff went down for all of them, and I think it’s a dangerous cocktail to be messing around with the power of God when you’re involved in the kinds of antics that those three are up to.”
