I wasn't going to say anything but...- Toya
Ok. I really wasn't going to say anything because I don't find Perez Hilton worth talking about. It has come to my attention that most people that act that "extra" and are so overly critical of others on the level that he is cannot be too happy with themselves. I mean, Tia and I have our share of things to say but we don't revolve our lives around bringing others down. Clearly this is a hurting man and I want to be sensitive to that but with that being said, I could not help but bring up something that struck me to be interesting about this whole Perez Hilton/Black Eyed Peas situation.

As you may know Perez Hilton got rocked upside his head by the manager of The Black Eyed Peas (Please, hold your applause). I am not going to go into how the first thing this man did was Twitter about it. The jokes write themselves, yall. I am not going into how he originally said it was Will I Am but now it comes out that it was Will I Am's manager. I am going to let the potential "Yall all look alike" slide THIS ONE TIME only to bring something else to light. I was reading this morning and read this quote by Perez Hilton, a gay man, on why he took to calling Will. I. Am a faggot.

According to Hilton, who is openly gay, said in his vide "I made the split-second decision -- that I was gonna say what I thought was the worst possible thing that thug [] would ever want to hear" -- which was the gay slur 'faggot'."

Will.I.Am a thug? Please, he wears argyle. We ALL know that the worst possible thing that Will.I.Am would have wanted to hear was not THAT word. Let's keep it real in the field, shall we? The WORST word? I think we all know what the worst word would've been and had it been said he would've been uploading his snitch videos from the nearest hospital while speaking through a tube.

And what I really LOVE (no sarcasm at all) is how GLAAD is like, "No dude. NO ONE can say the word "faggot", not even you." and are demanding an apology. I think if anything they need to make him apologize not only for using that word but for even coming out of the closet in the first place. You know how one person can make a group of people look bad? Oh and that brings me to this statement...

Clearly, I am not homophobic. Also, I am not nor have I ever claimed to be a spokesperson for the gay community. I am just speaking for myself, a gay man.

Really? You know what? I have already given too much time to Perez so I will end right there. My point of all this was we all know that while Perez might be ridiculous he aint all the way crazy. The "worst word"my behind...
