Site Announcement

Those of you who know me know that it's been a rough couple of months for me. I feel so much better now, and I'm starting a new job Monday. I feel like I've matured emotionally and like I'm starting a new phase of my life. So after much deliberation, I'd like to make this announcement:

I am removing Perez Hilton from my Google Reader.

Shocked, no? Look, it was good, clean, harmless fun when he was just drawing jizz on people's faces. Then he took upon himself the duty of outing gay celebrities and things got weird. But now he whines and cries when he's punched by someone after he dropped "the F bomb" on them. He was the one who came down the hardest (rightfully so) on Isaiah Washington when he said the same word. Now this A-hole uses the word, gets punched, and acts as if he's been murdered and victimized. What a child.

Then yesterday, after Michael Jackson died, I was watching celebrity Twitters for some godforsaken reason and he was making it all about him and he was a giant A-hole. I just can't take it anymore. He makes me ill.

Bye bye, Perez. I can get my gossip elsewhere, where they do it funnier too.

In the meantime, check out this great parody from Breckin Meyer. And then read this great post about the situation. Perez wants to donate any money he receives from the lawsuit to the Matthew Shepard Foundation, but they won't take his money.
But because the lawsuit presumably involves the physical attack prompted by Mr. Hilton’s admitted use of an anti-gay slur, the Foundation will be unable to accept any funds obtained in such a manner.
…we also feel compelled to point out that use of epithets can often lead to physical violence, as it appears it may have in this case, and that the Matthew Shepard Foundation has worked for more than 10 years to bring to people’s attention the consequences of hateful or intolerant language.”


(P.S.: Let me know if I miss any good goss, k?)

Wow you're such a big girl!! So you've gotta recommend some sites for me so I can dump Perez too.

And hooray for the Foundation to refuse his money!

I stopped reading him a while ago - it just got to be too much. His ego is WAY too big. Get over yourself, Perez, you're not all that. (Nice use of 90's slang, eh?)
