Tori on Perez

| Filed under: Personally PerezTori Amos


Words can't even describe!

Tori Amos, whom we worship, chats at length about Perezzzz in this new interview with Out magazine.

Here's what they say:

Out: I know Perez Hilton is a big fan of yours — is the feeling mutual? Do you think he and his cohorts work for the forces of good or the forces of evil?
Tori: I don’t go on the website all the time because I’d never get anything done if I did, and he knows that. But when the lights are off and you’re just sitting and talking to him he’s a wonderful force.

So you two are friends?
We’re acquaintances. We’ve met. I think he can have a very sharp blade — there’s no question about that. And there’s a persona there — that’s why somebody like that becomes bigger than life by talking about what other people are doing. That is his art form — talking about what other people are doing. Now when you do that, you can’t always be complimentary or it’s not sustainable. There is no career there. So if you’re one of the sacrifices along the way, it can’t feel good. It just can’t. But I think that if he weren’t doing it somebody else would be doing it. There’s always going to be somebody who’s commenting on celebrities.

And there’s something about his particular brand of panache or style that you can get behind?
I think he’s funny, but more than that, he’s very smart. He’s scary smart. And that’s why this is occurring — because he’s extremely intelligent. No different than Brian — Marilyn Manson. I don’t know him personally but I know people who’ve worked with him. A highly intelligent individual that created Marilyn Manson, a very smart person. Sometimes people forget that when they talk about the panache — that sometimes really distracts, intentionally, and masks you from the mastermind. But there is a huge mastermind that lives in Perez. And some people would find that very calculating, but then anybody that’s really good with concepts has to know that the concept is airtight. And if you have a good concept, you’ll inspire hate as well as ecstasy. Because if it’s just OK, nobody gets hard. It’s just one of those things — it can occur while you’re at the dentist — it doesn’t matter. But if it pushes those buttons in some way, then you have to know it’s a fucking great concept but it might not be what the public wants all the time. That doesn’t mean they’re right. When it comes to art, the public isn’t always right. The public likes what they like for all kinds of reasons. And sometimes it’s, “It’s just because I want it this way!” But that doesn’t mean it’s the most exciting choice.

  33. anon says – reply to this


    Maybe she should read the website. I doubt she would respect you if she knew you repeatedly referred to a 15 year old girl as a slut.

  34. Anon1 says – reply to this


    blah blah blah she's officially retarded, lol

  35. Jen says – reply to this


    She likens Perez to Marilyn Manson… what an intellect!!!!

  36. Novel says – reply to this


    We are SICK of you and your glad-handing of yourself. It's NAUSIATING to read something like this because what I read on this site is not intelligent nor insightful. If you are so intelligent, how come your site is such a JOKE? You can't spell nor compose proper English language sentences — what PART of you is intelligent? Your ability to SUCK UP to celebs???????!!!!!!!!

  37. Sad says – reply to this


    For the first time I am truely deeply disappointed in Tori, surely she does not believe all of that? Is she protecting her own back from this back stabbing twisted individual..

    Tori do you praise a man who cries "bastard" to half of the children in featured in his websited?

  38. danse says – reply to this


    right on! That's a huge compliment… YAY P MAN!

  39. Jodi says – reply to this


    I just had to comment, because I LOVE her - always have!!

    Oh, and how many of you have to say 'first' - no one cares and you just look like a fool when you aren't. I counted EIGHT 'first's - it's just dumb!!

  40. Tara says – reply to this


    Perez-you've never said anything intelligent. In fact the more you show of your "true" self, the less popular you get. If you were that smart you would not have gone through with that lame clothing line. Marilyn Manson is brilliant in music, writings, and even during interviews. You blather on like a 12year old girl about retarded stuff during interviews and can't even perfect your "art" on this website (ie. poor grammar/spelling). Sorry Perez, Tori is just being nice–you suck, but your website is entertaining.

  41. sam-n says – reply to this


    she must be on drugs or afraid of what you'll say publicly. it's hard not to see what an asshole u r.

  42. Tori says – reply to this



    Loved your circle of bullshit there.. You say so much, yet nothing at all!!!

    However darling, if Mr. Perez was calling your daughter potato head, or the like, on line, you wouldn't think he was so exciting or a mastermind,,, just a cruel FUCK to peoples children!!!!!!

    But i guess Tori you gotta be nice to him or he will not be nice to you….

    silly adult highschoooool!!!!!

  43. Jodi says – reply to this


    Re: buck

    Do you even know her?!?! She started playing the piano at age 2, began composing at age 5 and plays 8 or 9 different instruments. At age 5, she won a full scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory of Music - she was the youngest person ever to attend the school. At 13, she began studying at Montgomery College and began playing at piano bars, chaperoned by her father, who was sending tapes of songs she had written to record companies. At age 21, she got a record contract with Atlantic Records. What can you do?

  44. whaaa says – reply to this


    hmm… i won't deny that you have definite business smarts, but come on, 'genius'? nope, can't give you that. i seriously question tori amos' ability to recognize intelligence in others. if she thinks you are scary smart, she must be a bit of a dullard!

    i have said this all along about you Perez…

    you're a smart fuck and people hate you because you're a success at making people come back for more….the ones that don't like you still come back and make you even more popular…people don't realize you are calculating and think you're just sitting on a couch….

    but it's people like you that are always thinking…

    i personally see the business that is Perez…

    Tori is the shit.

    the guns and roses song "Used to Love Her" comes to mind…I used to love her…but I had to kill her…
    she should get on your site and see what a stupid evil person you are. you are the least intelligent person on the planet and i have totally lost respect for her. you perez? an artist?? more like a sick twisted narcissist. what a joke. and once again i end this post with saying i cannot wait until you get yours…you're going to cross the wrong person someday. i'm surprised bruce willis hasn't taken you out for insulting his daughters yet. i know i would.

  53. ding says – reply to this


    …uuuuhhhhhmmmmm….HOW psyched are you???!!!

  54. educa says – reply to this


    I HIGHLY disagree with her assumptions regarding your alleged intelligence and I'm being serious, not spiteful in saying that. In some areas, you show some level of intellect but when it comes to faith, politics, humanity, etc. you are inexcusably ignorant. You comment on a LOT of things about which you know absolutely nothing. You possess the ability to educate yourself, which is not the case for all human beings. In your case, the aptitude is likely there but you waste it trolling around in shallow ponds when you should be deep-sea diving in the ocean. Celeb gossip is fun but it isn't real. You either need to stop commenting on other, more important issues OR you need to fully educate yourself at a REAL institution of learning, which would then teach you what it means to use this platform you've been given responsibly

    Re: Jodi – Jodie — MBA Stanford University, college hoop player, wrote and produced childrens program that is still on air, instiutional trader, hedge fund manager. no musical talent at all. love to monitor the opinions of people on this site — but enough about me.

    1st week — 0 stories about Perez

    2nd week —- 0 stories about Perez

    Years later when perezhilton.com becomes a success— you start having veiled weekly stories relating only to you… they suck, and are boring, and don't add any value to your site.

    Why can't you realize you're not a celebrity, that you never will be, and that your 'talent' is in talking 'about' celebrities rather than being on yourself.

    Once you realize this, you will actually be succesful. Don't be a wannabe celebrity, be like Drudge Report to politics. He's the most important journalistic force in politics, but never speaks out publicly unless it's damn important (i.e.— some major newspaper interviewing him…) he would never provide a link to 'Huffington Post' or some other toilet paper substititute.

    IS SHE SURE… she chats POO
    she made no sense an just spoke fukin shit.
    shes annoying

    well…perez…lucky you you have such a grand diva behind you!!!
    I am a huge Tori fan, and she calls it like she sees it…..

    Lucky you to have Mrs.T say so many nice things about u!!

    good luck with everything…

    keep supporting our GODDESS

  59. Lia says – reply to this


    About the only adjective I'd agree applies to you is calculating. You've definitely made a career out of exploiting the lives of others, but to suggest what you do is "art" or that you're an artist by any stretch of the imagination is to undermine the concept altogether. The essence of art is creation…and you ultimately create NOTHING of your own accord. You're a parasite–or better yet, a cancer–who feeds on others until they die, then you move on to the next victim. You only function and survive off the creation of others. That is not an artist. Tori is an artist. Marilyn Manson is an artist. Even Lindsay Lohan to some extent. They all, in some form or another, posit something positive in this world (e.g. a song, a movie, a performance, etc.) that brings someone out there some level of inspiration or happiness–however small it may be. The only thing you have ever posited in this world, Perez, is negativity. You can delude yourself into believing the contrary; but deep down, you know it's not true. Otherwise, you would be doing something positive with your life. And if you truly believe Tori's appreciation for you (or any celebrity's appreciation for that matter) is anything but a thinly veiled attempt to avoid your onslaught of negativity…then you really are as unintelligent as your inarticulate ramblings would suggest. I hope you don't honestly think celebrities are nice to you because they actually LIKE you.

  60. tomba says – reply to this


    wow, lost all respect for Tori. I like Perez, but I have never seen anything intelligent in the way Perez has done with anything. That's bizarre that she sees him as highly intelligent. Makes me question her altogether. He is doing what so many others are doing and just got lucky.

  61. MrBig says – reply to this


    I guess you really have made it big time. You've got people that hate you so much that they waste valuable time to post how much they hate you on your website. I bet you he just rolls around in piles of money that the advertisers flail at him just a' giggling. That my dear folks is a different level of genius!

  64. Cyndi says – reply to this


    Tori nailed it! "sharp…", "intelligent…" And there's even more intelligence in compassion. You have the gift.

    Love you! :-)

  68. nikki says – reply to this


    Wow, Perez. That is hands down the best compliment anyone has ever given anyone in the history of life! I think she's dead on and I love what you do. I don't always agree, but that's to be expected. For the most part, though, I think you're fair and you've done a lot for the good guys and you've thrown those punches at all of the douche bags in Hollywood. Good for you, honey. Congratulations on everything!

  69. rante says – reply to this


    This is why I stopped listening to her music. She got pretentious and vapid. This meandering blabber about nothing (when I say "nothing", I'm referring to Perez's supposed intelligence.) Tori is so full of herself. Like someone already said, this is high school b.s. so Perez doesn't go after her. This is how stupidity remains a dominant force in the world.

    Oh puke! *shudder* This interview was even more nauseating than the Miley Cyrus interview!

    Tori is the Goddess!!!!!

  73. 73

    Perez, what a coup! Good for you! OMG, Tori is one of my favorite people ever… she's so amazing, and she had some really amazing & kind things to say about you. If I were you, I'd be on cloud 9!!!!!! Congratulations!!! :-)

  74. Emmas says – reply to this


    Tori rocks my world, and yes, she IS a genius.

  75. kim says – reply to this


    oh stop, even the haters know you're awesome.
    take tomba for instance..

  76. Yay says – reply to this


    Good for you, Perez!

  77. 77

    The commenters on here that are saying you aren't smart, or can't spell haven't looked at the big picture. You are very business savvy…so is Marilyn Manson. You created an image, like him, that people either love or hate.
    You are extremely popular and are one of the most visited celebrity gossip sites on the internet because of what you say about the celebs, not because the news is breaking.
    See, people that claim to loathe you still come here every day and comment whether it be trying to bash you on a personal level or about how you portray their favorite celebrities. So even if you have "Perez haters" they are still making you money. GENIUS!!
    It's no different from Marilyn Manson. People love him and people hate him. But it's because of a lot of that outspoken hate that he became popular. The bible belters really put him on the map by their protest rallies and petitions. And do you think Marilyn Manson is really like that when he isn't performing? No. It's an act. A phasad. A money making powerhouse. The guy wears make up at shows, for shoots, for award shows..but not when he's going to the grocery store or walking his dog. Same goes for you. People only see the you that's portrayed on this site and assume that is Perez Hilton. Well, Marilyn and Perez both have real names and real lives that a lot of you don't even realize. But that's ok…because they don't want you to. Money is better;)

  78. Green says – reply to this


    Wow Perez, that was really fuckin deep and a total "secret - ish " moment for me at the same time. I just saw my own process in this post. Thanks for all that you do. Good or bad I love it ….don't ever stop.

  79. blah says – reply to this


    I think it's pretty clear what she's trying to say…Perez built a very big career for himself in a smart way. Finding what people want and giving it to them. People want controversy & to have their buttons pushed. That's why she compared him to Manson…someone who is smart enough to get people talking & profiting off of it. It's not brain surgery people!

  80. 80

    Apparently she didn't see a few weeks back when you pretty much ripped into her.

    I am a gay male and am embarrased at the way you conduct yourself… Please close you fucking fat ass mouth in your pics…You are beyond annoying and give all gay individuals a bad name. You are a negative bitter queen and need to get intouch with your life… You exploit people and ridicule them because they are not up to your standards… People make mistakes, and as far as your fat ass to point them out constantly is a sad thing…Close your mouth in your pictures, you look like a fucking fat rat…

    What the hell is this woman going on about?

    She doesn't even make sense. She rambles on like an idiot politician.

    Perez, surely you can find a better way of patting yourself on the back. This woman is a jackass.

  84. Esthe says – reply to this


    Perez: I hope you know that all these woman who post ass kissing comments to you are all big fat fag hags. Fat chicks love the gays.

  85. erin says – reply to this


    i'm sorry, i just find it so hypocritical that every other day you post links to what cause we should donate to, when all you do is talk shit about celebrities, with the exception of your "friends" (i.e. rihanna, chace crawford, jonas bros - which is creepy, etc). how about you tell us what you donate? how about instead of making fun of rumer willis, you give some money? how about instead of calling out women like jennifer garner who might weigh 130 lbs at best for being pregnant, you realize you're still about 40 pounds overweight? seriously, look at yourself before you ever write anything again. you're gross.

    Yup: Perez is wicked smart, is a larger than life persona, and excels at his art.

    She left out: PEREZ IS FUN.

    I love Tori, but she didn't say it all.

    LOVE LOVE Tori Amos.
    And Perez, yes you are smart. Wished I would have thought of this whole thing first …you've got a good thing going here.

    I think the comments hating on Perez are funny. If you hate him so much, why did you take the time to visit his website, and leave evidence (posts) of your visit?

    Isn't it like Mira or something?

    AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH. I always knew there was something fucked up in her head, and that just confirmed it.

  98. Amand says – reply to this


    PEREZ, you are TOO COOL!!! THANK YOU FOR POSTING information about TORI AMOS. I can not get enough. I believe you work for the forces of fun, whatever that may mean. I am addicted to your site, keep on kicking ass!! :)

  99. 99

    What I think is hillarious is how many people leave so many rude comments both about Tori and Perez yet you obviously read his page in order to know what's going on, but then leave a rude comment. Douche bags!
    Tori is AMAZING!!! She is so brillant and talented. I've read her book and it shed so much light on her. I am one of her biggest fans. And Perez, you rock, too! These people are crazy!

    Re: Tori – Myra Ellen Amos, but she went by Ellen Amos for awhile. She got the name Tori from one of her friends who said that she looked like a Tori more than an Ellen. It stuck.
