Afternoon Links: Paris Hilton’s Return to Music, Zac Efron Drops a Condom

● Paris Hilton makes a sultry — or, as sultry as one can be while saying things like, "No one is safe in the Twittersphere anymore" and "I’m too lazy to type, so I send a photo I took up a dancer’s skirt" — return to music with "Drunk Text," a spoken word collaboration with electro-duo Manufactured Superstars. Maybe it could be art, if you let it. [VV]

● First things first: the graying James Mercer dies in The Shins’ first (and most Royal Tenenbaums-inspired!) video in five years. [Spinner]

● Jennifer Aniston has no interest in a big screen Friends reunion. "I can’t imagine how you would do it, unless you did it years from now," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I can’t imagine what that would be. It’s not normal. Friends is in your living room; Friends is not in a movie theater. It doesn’t make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self." [THR]

● Woops! Zac Efron let what appears to be a gold-foiled condom slip from his pocket on the Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax red carpet. At least he’s being safe. [Huff Post]

● None other than Angelina Jolie wrote the forward for Billy Bob Thornton’s upcoming memoir, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts. [PageSix]

● James Murphy was not just impressed by Dan Albarn and André 3000 — he was totally "awestruck" by them. "I was really stunned at how good Damon and André are as technical musicians," he tells Pitchfork of their Converse collaboration. "They could both sit down and play the piano really well, and I was just like, ‘Um, I can hit stuff.’" [Pitchfork]
