Perez Is Coming To Television! With Lady GaGa! And Katy Perry! And More!

As reported by The Advocate:

"Perez Hilton’s “Best Year Ever” Leads to New TV Show"

Being nice is paying off for Perez Hilton, who will cap what he describes as his best year yet with the launch of a new TV series in which he will interview Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Rowland, and Katy Perry.

By Jeremy Kinser

Being nice is paying off for Perez Hilton, who will cap what he describes as his best year yet with the launch of a new TV series in which he will interview Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Rowland, and Katy Perry.

The unscripted hour-long program, titled Perez Hilton Super Fan, has been picked up for four episodes by U.K.’s ITV2 and will premiere next month. The series will find the self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” getting exclusive access to celebrities, who happen to have enormous followings within the LGBT community.

Hilton sees the program as a culmination of last year’s announcement of his intent to change his behavior for the better, both online and off. “I was really concerned that everything would fall apart for me professionally when I decided to be a much more positive Perez on my website and publicly,” Hilton tells The Advocate. “But thankfully that hasn’t been the case!”

Hilton says the program has already been picked up in other territories besides the U.K. and producers are currently finding a home for it in the U.S. “Each episode is a super fun hour with me and a global superstar, all of whom happen to be gay favorites,” Hilton says. “The first season we Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland, Enrique Iglesias and we kick things off with the biggest star on the planet, one of my best friends, Lady GaGa. I have exclusive access and show you each celeb in a way only I can and you won’t want to miss it. It’s very special!”

Following a rash of antigay-bullying suicides last year, Hilton appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2010 and pledged to try to make a positive difference. He published his first children’s book, The Boy With Pink Hair, in September and in March Hilton used his annual celebrity-studded birthday party to raise money for the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

Cheryl Cole Being Courted To Judge UK Version Of The Voice!

cheryl-cole-considered-for-judging-panel-on-the-voice

Looks like Cheryl Cole might land on her feet after all!

Even though the pop star was humiliated by being fired from the judging panel of both the US and UK versions of The X Factor, it appears that she's being courted from another reality competition - the upcoming British version of the insanely popular The Voice!

And according to reports, both ITV and BBC are in a serious bidding war over its rights!

A source explains:

'The hype around The Voice is now so great that ITV feels it has no choice but to be in the running for it. If the BBC got it - and managed to sign Cheryl - then it could snare loads of viewers away from The X Factor.'

Oh man! We're seriously hoping it works out!

And wouldn't it just be BRUTAL if The Voice ended up killing X Factor in the ratings?!

We certainly imagine Chezza would be pleased!

Despite Simon Cowell's public explanation and apology on her behalf, sources close to her say she's less than interested in patching up their friendship, and reveals:

"If Simon thinks he can claim it was a business arrangement that went wrong, he is insane. She wasn't uncomfortable on the show. She was enjoying herself. No-one complained at the time. Simon admits he got his top producer Richard Holloway to tell her she was off the US show - that's because he was afraid to do it himself. Cheryl trusted him implicitly and she doesn't do that with many people. He made a mockery of their friendship so now it's dead in the water."

Can't say we blame her, after everything she went through!

Karma certainly has a funny way of working things out, and we have a feeling that if The Voice catches on over there even a quarter of the way it did here, then the next season of The X Factor might be in a little trouble!

We'll be very curious to see how this develops!

What do U think?? Should Chezza judge for The Voice??
