Perez Hilton, Soon-To-Be Music Mogul?

Being the inexplicable impresario of online gossip isn’t enough for Perez Hilton. Now he wants to be a music tastemaker, too. First step: founding his own record label, Perezcious Music, a subdivision of Warner Music Group. (Get the name, everyone? It sounds like “precious.”) The first person he got to sign on the dotted line was French singer Sliimy, who gained slight notoriety for his cover of Britney’s “Womanizer.” Soon after the deal was done, Perez asked celebs like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to tweet “Who is Sliimy?” to build buzz. Now, Perez is starting a 20-town music tour called “Perez Hilton Presents,” featuring Ladyhawke, Ida Maria, Semi Precious Weapons, and (use your psychic powers … ) Sliimy. “I think I am providing a very cool experience that folks may not have had access to otherwise,” he told CNN. “I like good music period. The artists on my bill are quite eclectic, from all over the world, representing all genres from singer-songwriter to glam rock, to pop, to dance and rock.”

So, will you be seeing “Perez Hilton Presents”? Inside rocking out or outside brandishing picket signs? Keep reading »

Hey, Perez! Quit The Bellyaching!

Since posting about the alleged physical altercation between Perez Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) and Will.i.am and/or a member of his “entourage” yesterday, I’ve been thinking about some of the details. Supposedly, the fight started when Fergie, also of the Black Eyed Peas, confronted Perez about being mean to her on his site. This led to Will.i.am, along with the band’s tour manager, Polo Molina, calling Perez out later that night at a club, and someone — now believed to be Molina, who turned himself in to the police — punching Perez in the face. The fight escalated from verbal to physical when — according to Lavandeira himself — Perez called Will.i.am a “f*ggot.”

Is Perez Hilton A Traitor?

Earlier this month, when extremely explicit, triple-X photos of gay “Milk” screenwriter Dustin Lance Black were leaked onto the internet, Perez Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) was one of the first bloggers to post them, in their NSFW entirety. Well, over on Huffington Post, Mike Alvear is calling Lavandeira a traitor for elevating Black “to the hook pinatas swing from” and that posting those photos — “guaranteed to repulse Straight America” — for everyone to see “took a guy who’s helping millions reconcile faith and family with their sexual orientation and turned him into a porn star.” I couldn’t agree more, but it should come as no surprise to anyone that Lavandeira is a creep.

Perez Hilton, A Celebrity In His Own Right

Love him or hate him, you can’t help but go to Perez Hilton’s website to check out his commentary on Hollywood and its happenings, complete with his random, harsh scribblings on photographs. Somehow, the man originally known as Mario Lavandeira has made big bucks off of making fun of celebs. In the September issue of Wired magazine, a profile reveals that ads on his homepage cost up to $54,000 a day. And since his only employee is his sister, Perez is makin’ bank. Why does this man who simply writes whatever pops into his head pulling in seven figures? Because what he writes on the site is what we’re all thinking in our heads but are too polite to put down or even discuss. Basically, Perez is our impolite alter-ego. But you can’t fault a man who’s as hardworking as Perez says he is. “I work 16, 17, 18 hours a day,” he told Wired. But if he honestly wants to be the “gay Latino Oprah” as he says he does, he’ll have to work a lot more, especially now that he has a radio show, an upcoming book, a clothing and accessories line for Hot Topic, and a deal in the works for a boutique label under Warner Music. Do you think Perez’s commentary will become less harsh now that he has celeb status himself? [Wired] Keep reading »

So, apparently John Mayer and gossip blogger Perez Hilton made out. Though we suppose that isn’t that much more “huh?!” than being in a serious relationship with Jessica Simpson for a year. [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
