Perez Hilton

Perez Hilton is not a popular man. He'd be the first one to tell you that, by his own estimation, 80% of people hate him. That's because he pioneered a certain type of celebrity gossip blog – the kind that trades in secrets, scandal and shame – and he was rewarded handsomely for it. To the outside world, he seemed perfectly comfortable playing the villain, but if Perez is to be believed, something was amiss the entire time. These days, Perez Hilton says he has changed a great deal, even though he knows full well that many will never forgive him for the way he behaved during the peak of his success. This is a conversation about what might drive a person to behave venomously, what could cause that person to stop, and whether it's ever too late for true, meaningful change.
