Meet the Author

Well before Perez Hilton (the Miami-born Mario Lavandeira) grew his website, PerezHilton.com, into a Tinseltown franchise raking in 9 million page views a day, the self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” knew exactly how Hollywood was changing. If you used to need an actual talent—acting, singing, playing a sport—in order to make it big, now you could become famous for being famous, and doing absolutely nothing at all. And anyone can do it; in other words, you too can be a Hilton!

Jared Shapiro is the News and Entertainment Director at Life & Style Weekly, and author of Going Corporate: Moving Up Without Screwing Up. He has appeared on VH1, Entertainment Tonight, E!, and Inside Edition.

I've read Perez's website from time to time, and let me tell you that this book was somewhat entertaining. I didn't buy it with the belief that i was going to gain knowledge, i knew i was just buying it for just entertaining purposes.
The book itself didnt dissapoint, it is clear and fun, for those who dont like perez because of his targetting to stars, well that is his job, and he has turned gossip into a business with profit.

Overall the book was good i would give it to young people at least just so they read a book.

I read Perez's blog everyday and this book was great. It was very funny and I couldn't stop reading it.

If you love Perez's blog then you'll love this book. Very entertaining and honest, Perez Hilton is definitely the "Queen of All Media." I read the book in one sitting and found myself laughing out loud.

I already love PH from his blog and everytime he's on TV, I like to watch. He's funny and really speaks his mind. Therefore, I adore his book! So, if you like hsi blog or just want to get the inside dish on the hottest celebs, this is a book for you.

Whether you hate him or you love him, there is no doubt that Perez's book is hilarious! It's a great spin from his web site and delivers gossip (new or old) in a fresh way. Just glancing at the chapters (or steps to becoming a hilton celebrity) made me laugh out loud: "Meet Jack Daniels, Your Designated Driver," "Replace a Snack with Crack," "Sell Your First Born." The book is filled with features such as quizzes and his iconic drawings, which makes the book very fun and engaging. I'm a big fan of humor books such as I Am America (and so can you) and America by Jon Stewart. The humor in Perez's book is in line with the style of those books and is definitely one of the most well-packaged books out there. It's sitting on my coffee table right now and I'm always compelled to laugh when I sift and read through the pages. I'd definitley recommed it to a friend or give as a gift.

Perez's rise in self-promotion recently has blunted his head. Too much about him, too boring!

Luckily I received a copy of this free and I am truly sorry to anyone who pays for it.

I've always thought Perez Hilton was himself gay, but it seems as though I was mistaken. The constant gay bashing is appalling. There is so much hatred thrown at lesbians, it is a complete shame that any publisher would go through with printing this. There is an asinine, misogynistic hatred for the majority of women who don't live up to an ideal that only his D-list friends do. (He has a problem with those who aren't famous enough and those who are too famous.)

He comes off as someone watching from the sidelines, willing to do whatever it takes to shine for 15 minutes. However, it has taken him 14 minutes to get there, so one can only hope this final minute is almost up.
