It Gets Better

I don't usually enjoy Gawker, but this posting can't be beat. Perez just can't help himself lately.

Pretty much reposting the entire thing here:

Today one of the biggest stars in the history of the world died. How did the internet's self-proclaimed "Queen of all Media" respond? By accusing Michael Jackson of faking the whole thing.

In the last hour Perez Hilton has taken down the photo shown here and amended his original post so he doesn't look as bad, but here's the text of what he originally posted.

We knew something like this would happen!!

Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!!

Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!

His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!

We are dubious!!

Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in ‘95 when he "collapsed" at rehearsal!

He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!!

Either he's lying or making himself sick, but we're curious to see if he's able to go on!!!

Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!

After Jackson was pronounced dead, Hilton took down the photo and edited the text down to these three sentences:

Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!!

The singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!

His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!

Meanwhile, the Matthew Shepard Foundation rejected Hilton's offer to donate whatever money he receives from a lawsuit against Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina. Here is the statement they released this afternoon:

The Matthew Shepard Foundation was surprised to learn this morning via media reports that blogger Perez Hilton (Mario Lavandeira) has announced he plans to donate, to our organization, the proceeds of a lawsuit he is contesting over an altercation which has been widely reported in recent days.

We had no advance notice or contact from Mr. Hilton or his representatives regarding this proposal, nor any communication since he posted this plan to his website.

We do not know the details of the lawsuit, whether it has been filed, the nature of his claims or the likely outcome. 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 very much appreciate the generosity of the offer to support our continuing work to memorialize Matthew through activism in defense of sexual minorities and in favor of understanding, compassion, and acceptance. But because so much of our work involves education to reduce the use of hateful language against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, or those so perceived, it would be inappropriate for us to benefit financially from circumstances in which such a verbal attack was involved.

While we applaud Mr. Hilton's apology to the LGBT community and their loved ones for his use of such a slur, 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 inolerant language.

How much longer before Hilton's advertisers begin to flee his hideously tarnished brand?

He Knows A Good Story When He Sees One

Perez continues to milk this story for everything it's worth. Now, he's suing. I guess he needs to maintain some sense of righteousness, even though most (read: 90%) of the Twitter and blog postings and celeb gossip sites I have visited have come down hard on him. Time is running out!

I'm Thinking No On This One

Hey Perez, and this Newsweek lady, I'm thinking it might be a stretch comparing the situation to a battered/abused wife scenario. Just a bit.

Update: I also heart this guy. Best line: "Forget the rich and famous, if you are a human being, Perez Hilton makes you look bad, no MS Paint necessary."

An Alternative to the Worst!

This has got to stop....

I encourage anyone who reads this to STOP reading Perez Hilton's website or subscribing to anything he profits from or gains publicity from.

However, I don't think anyone should be deprived of adorable pictures of Suri and Shiloh or miss out on up to the minute pictures of the casts of High School Musical and Gossip Girl. The internet is a gift, and we should be using it for all it's worth! But, let's all band together and save society from this Perez Hilton guy... he's dragging us down.

The Alternative....
People need celebrity news. And if you're not already, you should be getting yours from Just Jared.

I love this Jared guy. He is consistently positive and uplifting. He has all the same pictures as any other website and he offers lots more information about the pictures (not just drawing icky things on them and calling women every variation of 'slut' he can come up with... ew.).

Is Tila Right?

Yes, that Tila Tequila (you know who). She has started an "unfollowPerezHilton" campaign on Twitter after Perez's recent scuffle with and his bodyguard. Whatever your thoughts on the whole fight are, Perez's "explanation" of the fight is nearly laughable - much like his defense of employing slurs towards others.
I'd never thought I'd see the day when I would say (let alone blog) that I agree with Ms. Tequila.

Happy Father's Day!

This one's for you, Brian.
I wish I had a picture of your killer impersonation of this Father, but this will have to do. :)

I want these.

I saw these little gems through Justin Timberlake's blog. (Isn't the internet great?)

I'm not a huge fan of stationary; although, I'd say I'm a moderate fan. And I'm only a moderate fan of ironic humor on stationary. But, somehow, I think these are awesome.

With this stamp I could simultaneously tell someone "Congratulations!" and "Go to Hell!" Perfect.

And I think this one would be an excellent birthday present for Matt. (It is coming up...)

With this, after someone meets Matt and he gives them his card, they can instantly evaluate him! Again, perfect.

I am about to have a major "Cathy" weekend. Pretty much my entire weekend is stacked with events that generally require a 'plus one.' And yet, I will be attending them solo. (Take that, Society!)

My life is one long Cathy cartoon. She is my inspiration. Ack! Sweatdrops!

Thursdays without 30 Rock....

Here's something that warms my heart now that there is no hilarity beamed to my living room/heart on Thursday nights.

Apparently Tracy Morgan is filming a movie with Bruce Willis called "A Couple of Dicks." Who knows what that means (I, for one, am hoping for a buddy-detective movie, and not something semi disgusting, but I'll pay to see it either way).

On that note (Bruce Willis), I just recently saw the first 3 Die Hards... amazing! Why did it take me so long to see those?? Two thumbs, way up!

People Magazine Hates K-Hud.

This is the picture that the folks over at People Magazine (and have used over and over again, anytime they reference a possible romance between A-Rod and K-Hud. Is it me, or is this the worst picture of Kate Hudson EVER? (And the best picture ever of A-Rod... I usually think he looks like an icky, guido/permanent spring breaker.) Could it be that Madonna is controlling the photo editors over at People Mag? Something is up because clearly they have something against Kate Hudson.

(Disclaimer: I realize this may not be totally blog-worthy, but I had to get it out there.)
