Spin magazine gave the kick-off concert of our Perez Hilton Presents tour the most amazing review!!!!!!

They say:

"Perez Hilton Kicks Off U.S. Tour
The Queen of All Media throws a party with his favorite acts, including Ida Maria and Ladyhawke. And it is fabulous, dahlin

Perez Hilton helped put Lady Gaga and Mika on the map by featuring them in the "Listen to This" section of his popular site Perezhilton.com. So it was only a matter of time before America's celebrity blog princess became a de facto A&R man with his own label and a national tour.

Thursday night at Atlanta's 1200-seat Variety Playhouse, said tour kicked off much like his fans would expect: The stage was flanked by shiny magenta curtains and a massive "Perez Hilton Presents" backdrop. A video screen played boppy tunes by the Ting Tings and Rihanna, until the house lights dimmed and the host bounded on stage, sporting perfectly messy hair and a tight-fitting turquoise tee that read "I'm Huge on Twitter."

"Hi Atlanta! I hope you guys are drunk," Hilton said by way of greeting. "And if not, it's time to get drunk!" Then suddenly recognizing how young the audience was, he added, "And I don't care how old you are, I approve of underage drinking…as long as you don't drive."

With that, the party was underway.

French pop artist Sliimy, the first artist Hilton has signed to his label, will be appearing at select upcoming tour dates, but for the Atlanta kickoff, New York glam-metal band Semi Precious Weapons opened.

Led by androgynous frontman Justin Tranter, the group looked and sounded like the Sex Pistols — if they had emerged from Andy Warhol's downtown Manhattan Factory scene. "We are Semi Precious Weapons. You should start fucking now," Tranter urged. As for their set? It was like a drag show on speed, with just the right amount of pop fabulousness.

During the changover, Hilton hung in the crowd, smiling and chatting as flash bulbs popped around him, a constant reminder of the magnitude of his self-made celebrity. Then he was back on stage to pump the next act. "I have a silly celebrity website, but music is my passion," he declared, before unleashing Norwegian pop-punker Ida Maria, a rising star in her own right.

Within seconds, Maria and her band — think Courtney Love fronting the Artic Monkeys – had the crowd bouncing like excited Muppets, pogoing along to supercatchy tunes like "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." But they also knew how to shut the hell up during stunning, delicate tunes like "Stella."

Before introducing the final act, the sexy, synth-happy Ladyhawke, Hilton said, "Thank you guys so much for coming out. It's the first time I've done this. Thank you." Then back into the crowd he went.

Perhaps it was all the PBR swilling or the fact that Ladyhawke could have been playing the soundtrack to a feel-good 80's-era John Hughes movie, but the atmosphere became less like a concert and more like a giant house party, complete with famous bands and your new BFF, that nice, surprisingly earnest Mr. Hilton.

Looks like he's on to something after all."

    Wow, why are they saying that you put Lady Gaga on the map? She had already been performing on national TV in Sweden and Just Dance had already become a hit before you even mentioned her. So basically everyone who watched MTV knew about her before you did.



  2. 2

    yay! happy for you, perezie!



  3. 3

    Of course! You ARE awesome! Congratulations!!!! :)



  4. 4

    yay perez!



  5. 5

    Perez: if people want to drink, and not drive, and they are over 18,fine, usually. But alcohol is poison, especially for children. Idiot.



  6. 6

    Well, our music tastes differ, but I hope you're having a blast, Perez. You probably deserve it.



  7. 7

    Well done, Perezzers. Next stop: world domination.

    Kirk Cameron+Doogie Howser-they would make an amazing couple, if Kirk got over his wierd religious issues.



  19. 19

    I'll eat crow when I need to. Even if you didn't have a draw, the people there obviously had a good enough time that Spin paid attention. Good job Perez. Even if you did suck dick at Spin for that review, still, good job.



  20. 20

    You sure do like to pat yourself on the back A LOT !! Every couple of posts are about you. Honey, YOU are not the celebrity we come here to read about.



  21. 21

    sorry, no one fucking beats the pistols perez



  22. 22

    FUCK OFF IDIOT. U SUCK. SPIN MAG IS NO AUTHORITY ON REAL MUSIC THAT'S NOT RAP. NOTICE THE REAL MUSIC REVIEWERS AINT SAYIN SHIT. LIKE I SAID, ANYONE THAT BOOKS AT THE OPERA HOUSE IS PRETTY MUCH D LIST WANNABES. NEXT!!



  23. 23

    real classy dumbass "And I don't care how old you are, I approve of underage drinking…as long as you don't drive." you're a fucking moron.



  24. 24

    that was the biggest self serving piece of ass sniffing journalism I have ever seen in my life.



  25. 25

    is just sad because i knew GaGa before you
    u dindt put her in the map



  26. 26

    Spin ??..BARF……Thats a HASBEEN rag…kinda like u



  27. 27

    1. "spin" magazine… that's not an honor.
    2. you gave away free tickets… & people STILL didn't come see it.
    3. stop making fun of people who worked for their fame just because you are jealous because you are only famous for making fun of people and getting punched in the face.

    PEACE!



  28. 28

    Riiiiigggghhhhhtttt. So if Miley Cyrus had a drink in her hand in a picture, you would approve and not call her Slutty?



  29. 29

    Re: a!!!SEMICOLON!!!sldkfj22 – uhhhhh!!! that was a low blow but true…



  30. 30

    YOU DUMBASS MEDIAWHORE FUCKHEAD! GET IT THROUGH YOUR TINY BRAIN THAT NO ONE LIKES YOU! THEY LIKE THE ACTS YOU HAVE YOU HAVE NO TALENT AND ARENT FAMOUS! YOU ARE GOING TO LEAD A LONELY LIFE. HOPEFULLY THE NEXT SHOW YOU DO SOMEONE SHOOTS YOU IN THE FACE.



  31. 31

    wow, that's amazing! congrats.



  32. 32

    Uhm… you didn´t put mika on the map fat fuck he was already famous when you started talking about him so that´s bull shit!!!… oh perez i USED to love you but now i can´t even stand your fat ugly disgusting face!!!!



  33. 33

    Aww that's so great! Congrats Perezzle darling you're gonna be huge!



  34. 34

    Even if Spin magazine was a magazine that could give real insight on music, I don't let other people and magazines tell me what good music is. It is obvious that this magazine is sucking up to you because I know for a fact that you did not put Gaga on the map. Comparisons to the Sex Pistols & Courtney Love?
    Please don't make me laugh your acts don't compare at all to the potential and talent of those true musicians.
    And this can be a good review all in your favor for now but we will see how your whole tour does in the end, here's a hint for you the words "failure" && "pathetic" will come up a lot.



  35. 35

    LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE YOU POST ABOUT YOURSELF AND GAGA I IGNORE. THIS IS NO EXCEPTION. YOU ARE NARCISSISM AT IT'S FINEST. THIS IS NO LONGER A GOSSIP/ENTERTAINMENT SITE. IT'S A DOG AND PONY SHOW(YOU DECIDE WHO IS WHO)AKA THE PEREZ AND GAGA SHOW. DISGUSTING.



  36. 36

    only reason i came here was to say BLECH



  37. 37

    Hilton did NOT put Lady GaGa on ANY map. She was discovered and brought to fame by Vincent Herbert. She had toured and had a great cult following well before Perez's obsession kicked in. She also has a legitimate and admirable musical background/history to back her up. There are a gazillion photos of her on Google Images, very few of them from Hilton's site. She is not a "muse" of his by any stretch.



  38. 38

    im not reading that but…how much did you have to pay them?



  39. 39

    STILL A SHITTY TOUR NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS



  40. 40

    PEREZ, congratulations!!! you are an incredible guy, really, look how far have u gone. u deserve it. mil felicidades perezzito!!! i am so proud of u, puttin latino and talent people on the map. keep doing the hard work!



  41. 41

    Who wrote that one of your boyfriends? 1200 seats is nothing to shout about I bet it wasn't even sold out.



  42. 42

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – i'm wondering, too. but maybe spin magazine is also sponsored by.. oh well.. perez' sponsors (can't remember the name, sorry).



  43. 43

    Sounds a bit conceited…



  44. 44

    Perez sure does love to stroke his own c@ck



  45. 45

    YAY!!! Congratulations! You earned it, Mistah!



  46. 46

    Shut the FFFUCKK UP PEREZ! POST STUFF ABOUT CELEBS AND STFU. And i agree with sf90, she toured with cinema bizzare and others b4 u knew her.

    Congratulations - the tour sounded really interesting and fun, and it turned out to be just that. Great job - glad you have a way to make fun things happen.

    Look Perez, you're trying new things, and I respect that. You probably know that your blog won't last forever. But the way you keep patting yourself on the back and bragging about being responsible for putting people like Lady Gaga on the map is just plain ridiculous. Your blog isn't even about celebrity gossip anymore, it's about you shamelessly promoting yourself and the artists YOU think everyone should listen to. You don't care if people don't have the same tastes as you, you just keep shoving your favorite artists down our throats. I guess you just don't care about your readers, you're like "Oh, I get millions of hits everyday, who cares if they hate me? They still come to my site no matter what". Sure. Right now it may be the case. But this isnt gonna last forever. Your claim to fame is bashing and humiliating celebrities on a daily basis. So watch out for karma, because it just might be getting ready to bite you in the ass. HARD.



  49. 49

    How much did ya pay em?



  50. 50

    Fucking AYE Perez…. NIce.



  51. 51

    I just want to say Perez, you are really ugly. I just saw a pic of you on here with some chick and you have the hide to call other celebs ugly????? LOL. I cant believe you have the hide to make fun of someone as sexy as Jennifer Aniston and you have to look at your face everyday. Oh yeah just want to point out "Obsessed" by Mariah Carey is in the Top 10! Where is Madonna??? Oh yeah she could not get in the Top 70 LOL. Perez you have as much power in the music world as me! Absolute Zero. Oh yeah and Lady Gaga had a Number 1 song here in Australia before you even put her on your site. You are full of shit and ugly.



  52. 52

    I AINT READING SHIT YOU FAT MOTHERFUCKER



  53. 53

    This is off topic. But I really hate when people call gay men things such as queen, princess, girl, etc. I'm not against gay people, but it just bugs me!



  54. 54

    Oh Perez, you will NEVER be respected since your behavior with the Black Eyed Peas and dissing Fergie like a 12 year old on your stupid video.

    You are a joke in the industry, you are a wanna be jealous asshole who disses people like Fergie who has everything you WISH you could be. She has the hot guy in a marriage, she has the huge career, and you are nothing but a taq a long using the name of a stupid bitch who is famous for her grandfather owning a hotel chain.

    You have no crowds and begged Oprah to go to the pary the Peas were the headliner for. You are a zero, no matter what bullshit this magazine is spouting. You showed what an immature hateful loser hypocrite you are with your use of gay slurs. Lady Gaga was huge before you and your fat face next to her did not make her big. Her music did. She is running far from you since you acted like a loser insulting Fergie loudly in the club in
    Toronto. You are a woman hating jerk, Jealous sad person. Your tour is a failure partly because you are now just known as a hateful jerk with no real respect for others.



  55. 55

    I am a gay male that thinks you are a horrible person…you make sure you make a buck off of making horriffic alegations and insults at other people…you are a disgusting person



  56. 56

    that's awesome!! congratulations on all your successes!!!! muah!

  57. mdert says – reply to this


    57

    Who else is sick of this contradicting, double standard fa^g perez? Vanessa Hudgens is a fucking whore for private naked pictures to a boyfriend she loves but rhianna's slut ass posses topless for a mag and its "look at beatiful princess riri" 2 months ago kate gossline had devils horns drawn on her not she is this gorgeous americas best mother……. hopefully these overweight emo teens that worship this site will start to open their eyes



  58. 58

    How much did you pay this person to write this?



  59. 59

    congrats!!! xoxo :)



  60. 60

    congrats to you! if i weren't going to se my BF, i would be at the DC show. you are living the life according to your rules. i aspire to be that happy with my every day. YOU ROCK!

  61. ShanV says – reply to this


    61

    perez, your a fucking loser. always will be…maybe you should open a gym….and go there evvery day!



  62. 62

    "Perez Hilton helped put Lady Gaga and Mika on the map by featuring them in the "Listen to This" section of his popular site Perezhilton.com."

    More like shoved that bitch down our throats.



  63. 63

    Did you blow the guy who wrote this?



  64. 64

    I think the show was awesome… i liked the fact it wasn't over crowed, that I could really talk to the bands and actually have a conversation with Perez. He was really cool in person, and enjoyed that fact that he was rocked out in the crowd with everyone else. Maybe he didnt discover some of these bands, but through the power of the internet and having such huge hits to his website…he is bound to cause these bands to be elevated to star status…this website has opened my eyes to some bands that I wouldnt have heard of otherwise. So I give him props for venture he has started on…hate him or not…its ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC!!!



  65. 65

    I knew about Mika WAY before you ever mentionned him anywhere… This guy sure didn't need your help for anything…



  66. 66

    Damage control.



  67. 67

    whats the point in even coming on perezhilton.com if you are just going to tell him to' f**k off' and call him disgusting, get a life and dont come on this site if you dont like him! losers!



  68. 68

    you encourage drinking but critize people who smoke weed? Asshole



  69. 69

    yay preztle-bear



  70. 70

    This is a triumph Perez, congratulations. To all the haters who hate honesty, you would rather hear him give up some politically correct drivel to the crowd? Give me a break. Perez was not founded on political correctness and it ever is, then it will lose it's edge and force. Go Hilton!!!!!



  71. 71

    So, Perez….you approve of underage drinking? Might want to watch what you report from now on. I'd hate to see you appear hypocritical! So glad my 16 year old daughter doesn't read this!



  72. 72

    The Atlanta Paper: "The showcase had a modest turnout despite featuring Perez Hilton and buzz bands Ladyhawke (New Zealand), Ida Maria (Norway) and New York’s Semi Precious Weapons."



  73. 73

    How much did you pay for that review Perez? maybe one of your boyfriends over there wrote it? Seriously, they don't usually review anything that quickly.

    Sounds like an inside job - and they never commented on all the empty space from the unsold tickets.



  74. 74

    Jay Z Concert and much more check out

  75. 75

    Get over yourself it's a freak show.



  76. 76

    I miss when this column was about actual Hollywood gossip, and not all about Perez.

    It's like how MTV used to play videos, but turned into a shit reality show channel.



  77. 77

    Wow.Congratulations Perez on such an outstanding accomplishment!

    As for the haters, that take the time to post on here. I seriously hear a lot of jealousy. Why people would find the need to take the time to join, your site only to bash you, makes me think you play a very important role in their lives. If I don't like someone I simply stay away, and don't invest more time into them then I need to. The fact that they feel the need to come on here and constantly bash you makes me think that maybe they are Perez fans at heart :)
    And the underage drinking thing, seriously to me it sounded like an on the spot, add in, to a slip up …and to fix that slip up …he added in about not drinking and driving (good note to end up on) . I seriously don't think Perez runs around promoting underage drinking. Unless you've done plenty of public speaking yourself, you can't tell me you'd never slip up either.

    Anyways, I'm not saying you have to love Perez, or even like him, but why bash the guy on his own site. By bashing I don't even mean the comments that disagree with him, I'm talking about the ones that resort to name calling and insults.



  78. 78

    Yeah great, now leave this post being first on the site so that everyone gets to read the "amazing review" about your tour and don't update for another 24h, so you'll get the most out of it…… what the christ….



  79. 79

    Re: Vividly
    #79 I don't think you really understand this site. Perez LOVES the haters. That is why he wears a shirt that reads I heart the haters. The haters bring hits (traffic) to the site which bring him money. If it weren't for the haters, this site would lose 80% of it's traffic. If this site didn't have a comments section, do you think anyone would visit? No. It's all about mixing it up in the comment section.
    .
    Also, Perez does not write this blog and hasn't in a long while. It is his sister Barbara. He contributes less than 10%. He was quoted as saying, "I don't write that crap anymore."



  80. 80

    Re: Lady GooGoo
    why do you come on the website if you dont like him?
    alot of these artists are big in the UK.

    Re: Vividly
    "By bashing I don't even mean the comments that disagree with him, I'm talking about the ones that resort to name calling and insults."
    You mean like what he does for a living? You receive the energy you put out; it's all reciprocal. I highly doubt Perez even reads these comments, but it would kind of be a boring site if everyone thought alike and agreed with everything he says or does.



  82. 82

    Encouraging underage drinking….classy Pretzel…very classy. This is such self-congratulatory BS. Get over yourself, pp. In the end you'll always be a bitter queen with the crappiest taste in music.



  83. 83

    People are stupid, obvi none of the people you feature would be where they are so quickly without your help. With millions of hits of free publicity and endorsement, it's just simple math.

    Congratufuckinglations on this incredibly smart business venture! I wish you massive success and have been loving your musical taste for years. It started for me when you started showing Tori Amos, whom is my all time fave.

    I am so inspired by your entrepreneurial skills!!!



  84. 84

    Perez, Get over yourself!! you now use this site to promote yourself, kinda losing sight of why you started this in the first place………………..



  85. 85

    Once again you show your obsession with all things YOU.



  86. 86

    I approve of underage drinking? Wow, that is a very mature statement.



  87. 87

    "And I don't care how old you are, I approve of underage drinking…as long as you don't drive."

    Perez is an idiot.



  88. 88

    NICE ~ PEREZ! Very nice and congrats.

    Underage drinking has been going on since forever. Retards. It is "man" once again telling you you must be 21 to imbibe. But you can serve in the military prior to that.

    Just be responsible ~ that is he key and often young peeps don't think responsible.

    And for those of you who intend to bash me for airing this opinion… screw you now. I don't care what you think. I speak the truth.



  89. 89

    COME TO FUCKING JERSEY! OR ATLEAST OSMEWHERE IN NEW YORK THAT YOU DONT HAVE TO BE OVER 16 TO GO TO!



  90. 90

    Re: Miley Cyrus…The Princess of All Media – and i think YOU don't understand. the haters are a big part of this, yes - but i bet that he would love the lovers more - he just can't get them.. i wonder why.



  91. 91

    Only a 1200 seat venue? And I'm assuming it wasn't sold out because that would have been pointed out, in color. Not very impressive.



  92. 92

    I went to the concert! It was really fun… And Perez was very friendly and not snotty at all. He even lowered his head to listen to what some like 45 year old woman was trying to say to him.



  93. 93

    You approve of underage drinking… so what — you can seduce those boys>?



  94. 94

    Open mouth - insert foot — you are so predictable, PERVEZ



  95. 95

    Wow congrats!!! Talk about some well deserved recognition! Can't wait to see your show!!



  96. 96

    And a message to all the bitches getting there panties in a twist over something about underage drinking-EAT IT- You all know you drink.. puhlease



  97. 97

    #81—where the hell do you get your information from? Sounds like bullshit to me. Yes, his lame sister helps out, but the retareded grammar, cheap shots and obsessions of his are clear to see. Can their be a family with TWO vile siblings? I would hope not. I SERIOUSLY doubt he would say "I don't write that crap anymore." The site would lose all credibility. In both magazine and on TV I heard him say "It's pretty much just me." That is why him always saying "WE" on here is so annoying. It's him. And you know it.



  98. 98

    Re: Vividly – You're a fucking moron.



  99. 99

    HOW MUCH DID THIS ITEM COST YOU?

    AND WHO IS DAHLIN?

    WHAT DO YOU CALL IT WHEN THE CONCERT PROMOTER GAVE AWAY TICKETS WITH $50.00 ATTACHED TO THEM?

    DO YOU REALLY THINK EVERYBODY WILL BELIEVE THE WRITER YOU PAID TO WRITE THAT?

    JUST AS MUCH AS YOU ARE BRIBED BY STARS WHO WANT EXPOSURE?

    DOES "WOOL OVER YOUR EYES" MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU?



  100. 100

    congrats perezcious u deserve the success.
