Perez Hilton’s big media mea culpa started with getting on the Twitter yesterday. Because what better way to atone for your sins (and to acknowledge dead children) than to talk to your celebrity frienemies?
And then the video:
I, me, I, me, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, me, I, me, me, me, me, I, I, I…
–“I need to be the change that I want to see.” So, he wants to see…himself? OK. But I don’t need to watch a video of someone telling me what they need to do to make themselves feel better. You’ve wasted so much time already, and now you’re sitting in front of a webcam talking about what you’re going to do?! Just go do it!
–Public apologies are nice, but the great thing about saying “sorry” is that you really only have to do it once. If people don’t believe you after that, that’s their problem. Talking to Out, Ellen DeGeneres, The Hills‘ Lauren Conrad, and Reuters isn’t an apology, it’s a junket.
–Isn’t is presumptuous to call yourself a successful bully? To presume that the dull, unoriginal things you’ve been typing on your computer have had any impact on the rich, beautiful people you’ve been targeting takes some nerve. If, say, Jennifer Aniston was actually hurt by any of it, that says more about Jennifer Aniston than it does Perez Hilton. Don’t give yourself so much credit.
–Perez Hilton says he’s done being mean but that he’ll still be “sassy.” But will the audience that made him successful–the audience who LOL’d at the Microsoft Paint cum doodles on Avril Lavigne’s face–be savvy enough to appreciate the intellectually stimulating, nimble prose of “sassy” Perez?
–I see PerezHilton.com’s traffic has been on a steady decline, except for yesterday when it was up 8%.
