About Perez Hilton
Cubano and Miami Native Perez Hilton is the Internet's most notorious gossip columnist. The LA Times calls Perez, "like US Weekly, the Star, the Enquirer and Life & Style all rolled into one sweet yet snarky, sagacious yet salacious gay man." Perez was named the #1 Web celebrity for 2007 by Forbes Magazine and as one of the 15 most influential Hispanics in the US by People in Espanol.
Since launching in 2004, PerezHilton.com has become one of the leading go-to sites for celebrity news. In February 2008, eMarketer identified perezhilton.com as one of the top 5 websites for college aged women, beating out MySpace! The UK's prestigious Observer newspaper named perezhilton.com (#6) one of the 50 most powerful blogs. In May 2008, Perez kicked off a daily nationally syndicated radio show in 7 of the top 10 markets in North America. Perez has also become a celebrity in his own right. In 2007 he premiered his own show, What Perez Sez on VH1. He has appeared on television (ABC, CNN, E! News, Dateline, NBC, MTV, Vh1, and Much Music); and has been featured in the L.A. Times, The Wall Street Journal, Paper Magazine, CBS News, Us Weekly, InTouch Weekly and many more. Recently Master P. launched his mobile website at m.perezhilton.com, now his gossip gangsters can be updated anywhere they go!
In what has now become one of Perez’s most infamous and most important appearances on television, Hilton made headline news around the world while serving as a judge for the 2009 Miss USA pageant. During the Q& A portion of the contest, Perez was randomly selected to ask Miss California, Carrie Prejean, a topical and relevant question concerning America. When he asked whether she believes states should continue to legalize same- sex marriage, her response advocating only “opposite marriage” quickly launched a national debate. Disappointed by her response, Perez used his voice and prestige to try and unite the country rather than alienate individuals and sparked a new discussion about equal rights in America. Because of his positive influence for the cause, Perez has been asked to appear on Larry King three times, has been covered in Time Magazine, and appeared on the cover of The Advocate. Hilton plans to continue to speak out for the cause of equal rights and provide a positive viewpoint on the issue.
