    Seriously…no comments? That's so strange. Where are all those annoying people claiming to be first?

    Anyway…I remember meeting you through our dear friend Jeffrey back in the Mario days…and you bouncing this whole blogging thing around.

    Congrats on this honor. I'm addicted to your site and pray that when I make it as an actor I never piss you off!

    What, no transsexuals on the Power 50 List? What's up with that Perez?

    Think ostracism and fear and prejudice… even in the gay community toward TS…

    As if. AS IF you should even be on this list.

  16. Lisa says – reply to this


    16

    be yourself you say, and yet you criticize those who aren't perfect on a regular basis. If something is off about someone, or they aren't a standard beauty, you judge them, influencing the youths reading this.
    Contradiction is all too common on this site.

  17. shut up says – reply to this

    oh, STFU about transexuals, helenofpeel . get your own community and quit blaming everyone!

  22. Blaws says – reply to this


    22

    YOU do not deserve that at all. You are not influential. If you are to kids then thats a shame, but influential is someone like Ellen. You draw pictures on people and are a horrible side bar in the community that is being frowned upon.

    Perez is a hand puppet for the big media outlets. Perez is a tool. And a fag. He's out to spread the homosexual agenda to children.

    To the obviously confused: Baldwin is on the cover because he's in Brothers and Sisters (see #19 ranking) Sheesh!

  29. Tink says – reply to this


    29

    The Baldwin is not gay, he played a gat character in the ABC show"Dirty Sexy money". The man in the pinstrip suit play a gay lawyer in the ABC show "Brothers and Sisters". Just thought you outta know

  30. Tink says – reply to this


    30

    Re: Dee – Baldwin is in Dirty Sexy Money. He played a character that was having an affair with a (please help me with this) a man who dressed as a woman. The kicker part of the show was that he was married, had kids and running for senator. So funny.

    33

    Jodie Foster isn't closeted you ass. And your words about people being themselves are so ridiculous when you yourself are always judging those that aren't fitting the image that *you* want them to have. You? Are all kinds of sad and pathetic.

    Re: Lisa
    Exactly what I was thinking…don't try to get all accepting on our asses when you are the first to point out someones flaws!!! Espically funny is when you call other people fat (who are not) and you are flipping HUGE.

    This post is why Perez deserves the good things he gets - as much as he criticises celebrities, he always roots for the underdog.
    We love you perez!

    if you should be on any list, it should be "best at spewing bullshit" your great at that. as for being influential . that's a stretch. But I'll give them credit for putting your name on the list to get attention to the magazine.

    as cool as it is to be cool with being gay, it would be great if some of the good looking guys left would stay straight…. us straight girls like cock too

    43

    Hey SHUTUP, if we weren't being murdered, beaten, and raped by people like you, maybe there would be enough of us left to be a community…
    70% of MTF TS have been sexually assaulted. 60% of FTM. NOthing like that even comes close in the "gay" or "straight" world…
    And ignorance like yours will simply let it go on and on and on…

    Am I totally out of the loop or is Dave Annable really gay? I am so confused. I thought he was dating Emily VanCamp or LC…

    holy crap you beat Tom ford.

  46. fererra says – reply to this


    46

    you dont deserve to have an ounce of your lard ass on that list. you are in no way, shape or form influential or an inspiration to anyone.
    you are a fucking waste of human and i feel bad for this magazine for having such atrocious taste.
    i can't believe you even beat tom ford! tom ford owns you and your fucking fagness.

    It's typical how the old guard tries to play things down. I.e., Perez is, in truth, in the top three and on the rise…

    Too bad they don't do the 50 that still think they are in the closet! Seacrest would be # 1 and DiCaprio #2.

    56

    IT'S NOT BECAUSE YOU'RE INFLUENTIAL THAT YOU'RE A GOOD INFLUENCE.. YOU WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE AT THE RIGHT TIME AT THE RIGHT PLACE, YOU COULD HAVE USED THAT "INFLUENCE" TO DO SOMETHING GOOD INSTEAD OF PUTTING DOWN PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, oh yeah you post worthwile causes posts once in a while, woop tee fucking do, too late

  57. Goatse says – reply to this


    57

    I can't believe you would make that list. All you do is spew your garbage everywhere. I'm from Canada, a place that embraces the gay and lesbian community like no other country in the world but i would not let a scumbag like you into this country. You're absolute disgrace TO EVERYONE!

  58. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA says – reply to this

    Im "stick thin" and "conventionally "beautiful" i can't be myself and brilliant? thats a little bias…

  63. Lisa says – reply to this


    63

    Is this a joke?!? Ha Ha! Perez are you actually trying to tell us to accept people no matter what they look like!? I am laughing my a$$ off right now!!!

  64. erin says – reply to this

    congrats and who is the HOT guy on the cover!? (on the bottom center)!!!!

  65. Say What????!! says – reply to this


    65

    Perez writes, "If any young kids are reading this - gay or not, those that are different, those that aren't stick-thin, those that aren't conventionally "beautiful"…To them, we say: be yourselves! Be yourself and be brilliant!" PEREZ, WHY TRASH RUMER WILLIS THEN, WHOM YOU PERSONALLY DO NOT CONSIDER CONVENTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL ??? HYPROCRISY!!!!!

  66. allie says – reply to this


    66

    Billy Baldwin is not gay. If you paid attention to the cover, it is about Greg Berlanti's shows.
    He plays a man who has an affair with a transexual man in Dirty Sexy Money.
    Note also Matthew Rhys (aka Kevin Walker) and Dave Annable from Brothers & Sisters.

  67. Hamish says – reply to this

    So true Perez! Great post!

  69. perezhater says – reply to this


    69

    It makes me SICK! to think you even made it onto that list! Yes you are "Influential" but in a very bad way! Kids do you really want to grow up and be like Perez ? Do you want to OUT closeted gay and lesbian stars, who's private lives have nothing to do with the public, or some FAT, unintelligent, low life trying to OUT them. If you do you will lead a VERY VERY sad life, and at the end of it will have nothing PROUD to show for what you have done with your life.

  70. Yeah, P-Ugly sez says – reply to this


    70

    To be yourself, but if you are, he gets to make fun of you! Be yourself if you aren't fat, just be prepared for white cum bubble drawings… way to think! http://tiny.cc/quickcash

    Perez
    Don’t take this the wrong way it’s a sad when your # 16 goes to show we have to many still in the closet.

  72. Puh says – reply to this


    72

    "be yourself ", you say, and yet you criticize those who aren't perfect on a regular basis

    You are one of the worst hazera in the business!!!!!!!
    I hope all fans of Robyn ask her to NEVER EVER MORE have anything to do with you!

  73. Liss says – reply to this


    73

    You're fucking hypocrites if you work for this site- telling people to be themselves when you riducule anyone not totally conformist ( excluding gays, gee I wonder why) fuck you hypocrites

  74. ur an idiot says – reply to this


    74

    Yeah, um, Perez, you have your numbers all mixed up here. Ellen is NOT number one, and you are NOT 16. Nice try. 17 wasn't good enough?? Thing is, this might be your most honest blog ever and you STILL fucked it up. Do you ever verify anything before blogging?? At least you put Ellen as number 1, who completely deserves it. You on the other hand don't and never will. You sorry fat fuck.

    What a hypocrite! 'those that aren't conventionally "beautiful"…' you bash Rumor Willis constantly for being "fugly" and all she's trying to do is be herself!!!

    Jodie Foster is great and all, but who does she influence other than John Hinckley Jr.? And that was almost 30 years ago. Seriously.

    perez, don't you make your living ridiculing "those that are different, those that aren't stick-thin, those that aren't conventionally "beautiful"…"

    isn't that what you DO??

    in this post, you exhibit an even more astounding lack of self-awareness than usual!

  87. Ohdoyouhearthat?Violins says – reply to this

    Wait?Why is one of the Baldwin's on there?Is he gay or just desperate for a job?

  91. canadada says – reply to this


    91

    Perez, you really shouldn't be trying to take the moral high ground… ever. "Be yourself"??!! You are the first to run anyone down if they are the least bit successful. Your site feeds on poking at people's imperfections. You're cruel and bitter. Don't pretend to be anything else. Enjoy your influence while you have it, but don't think you can also trick us into thinking you are good.

  92. Lol says – reply to this


    92

    suze orman too?! Gosh this further proports the stereotype that all strong/powerful women are lesbians.

    I bet condilishious is a rug muncher too.

  93. cjm says – reply to this


    93

    Can't believe you are anywhere near the top. Influential? Not. Must not read your blog because I would believe that Rosie, even with the View Crap is alot more influential than you. And the CREATOR of Brothers and Sisters and Tom Ford are below you? Who do you know at that mag or is it a crap mag?

  94. Odes to Perez says – reply to this


    94

    Ode to Perez, and how he defines "success"
    By making fun of people, and calling them "hot mess"
    He's confused his career with a desirable life
    Poking fun at people, often those in strife.
    If you are young, old, gay, straight, white, black
    Learn how not to make your living being paid to attack
    Being part of the problem is not cool at all –
    Parasitic people make big lists, but they can never stand tall.

  95. barcapolo says – reply to this

    how can jodie foster be on the 'out list' when she's never come out and said she's gay? Don't you have to come out to be on the out list?

    wow Perez, don't get soft now that you hit 30. This post was so nice and inspirational! I have such a crush on Greg Berlanti, I went to a party at his house in the Hills once, he's so cute, nice and unpretentious. I hear he's taken now though…

  99. Sal says – reply to this

    Perez's awesome! Congrats to you.

  100. SERIOUS AS CANCER says – reply to this

    LIGHTEN UP!!!!!

    What I love about Perez is that he reminds me not to take certain parts of life too seriously.

    Doodles and silly name calling really can't hurt too many people. Most of his targets know that being in the public eye means having to deal with the public's opinion. Besides he can be really funny.

    Part of loving yourself is being able to laugh at yourself.

    And sometimes Perez has used his position to bring attention to more serious issues.

    As some one pointed out in this list of comments, public discussion and awareness about transexuals is lacking. So even if Perez seems just silly when posting about that fascinating Bulgarian transexual popstar, he does successfully get people talking about transexuals. Even if the commentary by some readers is juvenile, its good that a discussion starts.
