Paulina speaks up
 August 1, 2012 | 6:55pm ET

It seems as if every time you jump on the Internet, there's some kind of news surrounding Paulina Gretzky.

And unfortunately for the 23-year-old bombshell, it's for all the wrong reasons.

Dating back almost one year, Paulina first made headlines over numerous Twitter postings of herself, and some of her friends, provocatively dressed and doing what any 20-something-year-old does on a daily basis.

But, because she's the daughter of some guy named Wayne, everyone seemed to make a big deal out of it.

In the months to follow, Paulina continued to post racy pictures on both Twitter and Instagram, and eventually decided to take a break from all the attention (and no, her father didn't force her to do it -- despite reports suggesting otherwise).

Most recently, pics of her with the Stanley Cup, partying with members of the Los Angeles Kings (no, she's not dating Jarret Stoll -- she says she's single), spread across the world-wide-web, and TMZ jumped was quick to jump all over her for a wearing lingerie-like attire.

Paulina managed to get a few things off her chest in an interview, and photo shoot, with Complex magazine, where she immediately denied living in her father's shadow.

"My dad's accomplishments are completely different than everything I've done with my life and the career path I want to take," she told Complex. "What he's done has only been inspirational for me."

Signed with Universal Records, Paulina is focused on growing her musical career and hopes to unveil her first official track with them in the near future.

"People might think this has been easy for me but I've been working hard at singing since I was 16," she said. "I went to Interlochen [Center for the Arts]. I studied opera. I've paid my dues."

With her mind primarily set on her career, she believes most of the extra attention she's received is simply attributed to her last name.

"The only reason people are paying attention to that is because of my father. I don't think they'd care if I was anybody else. I'm a normal 23-year-old. I know attention is part of the career I've chosen, but I wish I was presented in a different light."
