Sometimes I feel like I need a shower after I read it, but I'm gonna be honest right now and admit that Perez Hilton's gossip blog is a fairly frequent guilty pleasure. Still, I'm just not sure what I think about the guy as a person. I usually love me some chatty/catty gay boys, but sometimes a bitch is just a bitch.
After last night I will say this, the Perezell does know how to throw a par-tay!
Here's just some of the highlights from Hilton's birthday bash at the Roxy Friday night: Donovan Leitch in Hedwig drag singing "Season of the Witch," with his dad '60's crooner Donovan; Dave Navarro jamming on Suffragette City with his shirt off (okay, that's nothing new I guess); electro-rockers Ultraviolet singing Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation" to the newly blue-haired (see pics) media queen; The Gossip's Beth Ditto stripping to her skivvies, writhing in the audience, on stage and later in a mountain of smashed cupcakes; Dita Von Teese showering in a bird cage....
I'll elaborate on all of these in next Thursday's edition of Nightranger, but for now I'll leave you with these dueling shots of P.& P. and P.& me. Paris may have inspired his name, but I think we make a much more colorful couple.
PS: I'm interviewing him tomorrow and if he pisses me off, I'm gonna draw snots coming out of his nose.
