Interview w/ Perez Hilton on Gaga’s New Era, Britney, Madonna & Building his Gossip Empire
Jess sits down with celebrity gossip columnist extraordinaire PEREZ HILTON for a wild ride of an interview. Perez is the original celebrity social media influencer dating back to his infamous blog which he founded in 2004 under the name “PageSixSixSix.com.” We talk about the lawsuit filed by the New York Post which forced him to rename his brand and site PerezHilton.com freeing him to become a household name able to move beyond his site into a full blown celebrity pundit/influencer. Jess also gets his hot takes/predictions for the new Lady Gaga era, as well as Britney, Madonna & Justin Timberlake, Jessica Simpson & John Mayer. We then chat about Housewives in general, dating back to when he outed Bethenny’s pregnancy during season 3 of RHONY and became a storyline himself on the show.
