Perez Hilton just got more hate-able: the bottom-feeding gossip blogger told The Advocate, a gay magazine, that during his fight with Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas, “I thought about calling him the n-word, but I thought the f-word was even worse.”
“I was so filled with hate at that moment because I was hated on so much, and I reacted in the worst way possible. Then I went on to make a bunch of other mistakes. I shouldn’t have made the video. I shouldn’t have released so many statements. But what’s come out of all of this is that I’ve learned so much about myself, and I’m in a much better place. I’m actually thankful that it happened. As cheesy as it may sound, I had almost a spiritual moment when I just let all of the anger and worry go and am now filled with peace, happiness, and wisdom. I could let this jade me and go back to being the super bitch that I was when I first started the website, but I’ve softened on my website and in life, maybe because I’m happier in my personal life than I’ve ever been.”
Well, if you’re happy, Perez, then that’s all that matters!
Sigh. At least he admits he “reacted in the worst way possible.” At least he calls it, sort of, a “mistake.” And at least he seems to realize that the hate he’s experienced as a gay man begets the hate he puts back out into the world.
But when you get deep down to it, Perez Hilton is just making excuses for his bigotry. Oh, his personal life isn’t happy! He’s spiritually blocked! He asks himself in times of trouble, “What would Madonna do?” Gosh, I’m surprised he didn’t blame his chi or his feng shui.
Perez Hilton contributes virtually nothing of substance to our culture, yet his bouts of verbal diarrhea just keep going and going and going. Can’t someone put him—and us—out of his misery and convince him to shut the hell up? [The Advocate]
