And people say reading is good for you? Perez Hilton‘s second book of 2009, True Bloggywood Stories: The Glamorous Life of Beating, Cheating, and Overdosing, hits bookstore shelves tomorrow, and it’s being billed as the perfect holiday gift for any tabloid hound. His Gosspiness claims that the book is full of juicy, can’t-read-anywhere-else tidbits, but I’m skeptical since, uh, why would he save big scoops for the book rather than throwing them up on his blog along with doodly pictures? One of the claims Perez makes in the book: that Drew Barrymore isn’t so reformed. “She was f***ed-up. She’s always f***ed-up,” he writes. “She is not the sober kitten that the main public may think she is.” Keep reading »
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 »
“The Tyra Show” came back for its fifth season yesterday! Perez Hilton (barf) stopped by as the first guest. But the main event was Tyra Banks, who is usually weaved to within an inch of her life, hosting the whole show with her natural hair.
Unforch, Tyra’s real hair is anticlimactic—i.e. she’s not bald. Underneath those weaves and extensions she sashays down the red carpet in, she has regular, boring, shoulder-length brown hair. On yesterday’s show, though, she may have straightened it or had a relaxer in it or something, because it was not kinky in the slightest—which kind of defeats the purpose of her saying “It’s my real hair!” Doesn’t it?
Anyway, during the show, her hairstylist, Oscar, blow-dried and curled her natural ‘do, while she chatted with three women who have some serious issues about their real hair. One of her guests was a biracial woman whose white mom didn’t want people to know she had a black father. This evil mom shaved her daughter’s hair off as a kid because she didn’t want a “nappy-headed baby.” Keep reading »
Is it just me or has 2009 been “The Year of Ridiculous Fights” for Perez Hilton? Sure, his derogatory blogs are sure to annoy even the thickest-skinned celebrities, but this year he seems to be digging in and truly getting under some celebrity skin. Of course, he’s at it again—this time his opponent is Demi Moore. The issue? Some suggestive party pics of her 15-year-old daughter Tallulah Willis. I’m sure you can imagine where this one’s going. That’s right … a Twitter war.

It’s hard not to hate Perez Hilton. Dude can be a real d-bag. So, when Jezebel blogger Tracie Egan wrote on her own blog that she’s not nervous about Hilton’s new CocoPerez “lady blog,” we were pretty much in agreement. After all, Jezebel is pretty awesome as far as the feminist blog set goes, and Perez Hilton draws penises on women’s faces. But Egan moved quickly from criticizing Perez for thinking he “gets” women to bitching about gay men in general. According to Egan, gay men are to blame for most of the problems in the fashion industry.

Jezebel peeked at Perez Hilton‘s new site for 20-something women and screen-grabbed the hell out of it. The not-yet-launched site is called CocoPerez.com, and it’s for women who like their news with ejaculate dribbles scribbled on it! Keep reading »
Not that Perez Hilton is publishing the most poetic prose ever, but just so you know, he’s got a ghost writer—or two, or three. See, the celebrity blogger let the name ‘Jonathan Lewandowski’ appear in a post back in February and this was a bad thing because Hilton had an agreement with Lewandowski, a young blogger, to never do so. On a twisted side note: apparently Hilton also had an agreement to promote Lewandowski’s blog on his site in exchange for sex tapes? But I digress. So Lewandoski saw his name on Hilton’s site, got himself into a tizzy, and filed a lawsuit in a Los Angeles court. “Nay!” Perez Hilton said when he learned of the suit because it was not him who wrote that post, but his sister, Barbara Lavandeira. In the past, Perez has said that his sister “is my assistant and helps a little bit.” But this suit certainly makes it seem like she has a much bigger hand in the site than Perez has copped to. So why won’t he let his sis or any others get credit? It’s not like he has such a great reputation to keep in check… [Defamer] Keep reading »
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.”

In response to his debacle with Perez Hilton in Toronto after the Much Music Awards, Will.i.am created a video to defend himself. Of course, Perez Hilton wanted to have the last word, so he posted a video response. The people over at Funny Or Die couldn’t resist taking advantage of the fact that it’s pretty impossible to watch the 11-minute narrative while keeping a straight face. Above is their parody, featuring Breckin Meyer with a quick appearance by Zac Efron. [I wonder how Perez felt about that. He has a crush on Zac! -- Editor] Breckin, where you been since “Clueless?” Keep reading »
