Perez Hilton is not having a great week. He gets punched by the Black Eyed Peas tour manager, whines about it, is laughed at by, oh, just about everyone but Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, gets called out by GLAAD for calling Will.i.am a “f*ggot,” and is generally told to shut his pie hole by nearly the entire blogosphere. And then yesterday, when rumors began to swirl that Michael Jackson was hospitalized after experiencing cardiac arrest, he posted the photo above on his blog, with the following text:
We knew something like this would happen!! Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!! Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!! His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!
We are dubious!! Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in ‘95 when he “collapsed” at rehearsal! He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!! Either he’s lying or making himself sick, but we’re curious to see if he’s able to go on!!! Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!
Once it was revealed that Jackson was indeed sick — and then had died — Perez took the photo down and deleted all but the first three sentences, as if his “dubious” feelings had never existed. But the internet doesn’t forget! Keep reading »
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.”

This weekend, at the after-party following the Much Music Awards in Toronto, Perez Hilton tweeted that he had been physically assaulted by Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. And then Tila Tequila was all, “Perez is lying!” Will.i.am then responded on his Twitter and posted this video. Apparently whatever occurred started when Fergie got sad because Perez was making fun of her. According to Perez, the authorities are now involved. He posted his own response video. What a bizarro story. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
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.

When Carrie Prejean lost last month’s Miss USA pageant because (some think) she opposed gay marriage, after which she did an ad for the National Organization for Marriage, rather than attending to her Miss California “duties,” she made it pretty clear where her loyalty lies. It makes sense strategically — her anti-gay marriage stance ruined her appeal for many, but it did increase her popularity with a powerful few. Prejean hedged her bets by distancing herself from the Miss California Organization and lining up with those who had her back. She wasn’t going to be a pageant queen forever, after all.
She should have handed over her crown to someone who was interested in fulfilling those Miss California duties — whatever they are — since she had better things to do. But she didn’t and because of that — and Perez Hilton’s relentless campaign against her — Prejean stayed in the spotlight and the inevitable happened. Topless photos! Of a beauty queen! Who believes in God! The hypocrisy! Let the slut-shaming begin! Keep reading »
Perez Hilton and Miss California, Carrie Prejean, were on “The Today Show” this morning, talking about the controversy surrounding the beauty queen’s response to Hilton’s gay marriage question at Sunday’s Miss USA Pageant. On the show, Hilton was extremely well-spoken and made the argument that Miss California alienated many Americans with her anti-gay marriage response. Because Miss USA is supposed to represent all Americans, it cost her the crown. I’m not sure that I look to a beauty queen to represent me or my views to the world, but I get his point. When it was Prejean’s turn to speak, she said she spoke from her heart, and she stands by what she says, as it reflects her religious beliefs. I can kind of respect the woman for answering honestly, even though I personally disagree. But what about the fact that her response was poorly delivered? I mean, “opposite marriage”? As Hilton said, Miss California should have been better prepared for that question and had a coherent, if unpopular, answer ready to go. Keep reading »
Dr. Drew Pinsky and Perez Hilton Twittered back and forth last night about Lindsay Lohan’s mock eHarmony commercial, her alleged drug and sex addition, and their hopes that she get well. It was all a little presumptuous, in my opinion, but it’s amazing how much personalities like these two will say in 140 characters. After the jump, the whole exchange. Keep reading »
Depending on whom you ask, Perez Hilton is either the “Queen of All Media” or the proprietor of “Hollywood’s Most-Hated Website.” Born Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr., in Miami, Florida, to Cuban parents, the 30-year-old actor-turned-blogger runs the celebrity gossip site that has redefined Hollywood coverage. Whether he’s adding splooging penises to photos of stars’ faces or shoving Lance Bass and Neil Patrick Harris kicking and screaming out the closet, Hilton has neatly positioned himself alongside the infamous to become a virtual celebrity. After the jump, the notorious blogger talks about his new book, how to blog, and who should play him — and his love interest — in his biopic. Keep reading »
Perez Hilton and Michael K work from opposite cities, on opposite sides of the country, and they cover opposite sides of the media machine. While these bloggers are certainly not cut from the same cloth, they are both out Latino loud mouths cracking us up about culture and celebs — who’s doing what, who’s doing who, and who is gayer than Gloria Gaynor. We follow these two bloggin’ boys like they’re as famous as the people they write about. So, let’s see how they stack up, side by side with a Perez vs. Michael K Face Off! Keep reading »
Now that Clay is out, he needs some love! But who is the David Burtka to match his Neil Patrick Harris? We ladies at The Frisky, like his surrogate Jewish grandmothers, want to fix him up! Here are the studs we think would fire up Clay:
Lance Bass: Former member of boy band N’Sync, Lance Bass just hasn’t been the same since his break up with the man who helped him come out of the closet — Reichen Lehmkuhl. While Reichen has already moved on, Lance has been a mess! He’s unsuccessfully dating dudes like his married personal trainer (yikes!) and a bad tipping bartender! So he clearly, Sir Lancelot needs someone who will fight for his honor and share his love of highlights. Clay could be his bottled-blonde Prince Charming.
