Lewis is not a fan of the kinder, gentler Perez, who changed his site's tone after being publicly pressured by Ellen Degeneres. "You're much more complimentary now, you're less mean-spirited, and you're a little ... you're less snarky," said Lewis. "I like the old you."
Lewis asked Hilton if he could "do another blog for people like me? Because there's a lot of us." Hilton responded that he enjoyed being more positive, and Lewis said that was fine, but some celebrities "act like jerks" and deserve Hilton's snarky comeuppance.
Then, while singing, Miley took off over the stage, lifted by invisible wires, and flew above the audience while wearing her oddly cut-off dress.
Okay. We don't particularly want to enter into this controversy in any way. But we will say that complaining about excessive attention and then flying above an audience while wearing a cut-off skirt seems like a weird contradiction. You guys be the judge. Were Miley's actions during the concert too provocative?
Then while talking to Perez Hilton on 'The Bad Girls Club' (Tue., 10PM ET on Oxygen), you said you'd like to "apologize to [Rihanna] and her party and anybody that felt that I condoned domestic violence."
This whole exchange is interesting for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that Perez Hilton comes off looking like the normal person here.

In case you missed the guilty pleasures of this season's bad girls on their worst behavior, we present you with the seven wildest moments in the house. Relive the glory and prepare for the second part of the Perez Hilton-hosted reunion special (Tue., March 23, 10PM ET on Oxygen).
Let the badness begin!
And does Hilton seem like the perfect celebrity guest on this show? You sort of picture him having his own girl fights elsewhere in his life. We won't talk about the hosing down part.
Watch the video after the jump.
Tyra decides to knock off Myspace with what she called "MyFiercePage" to cut the semi-finalists to the final thirteen contestants. This would have been really edgy in 2007, but now anything Myspace related feels lazy and outdated. If Tyra created "FierceBook," I would have found it more believable.
Ever since Ellen DeGeneres joined the show during Hollywood week, there have been rumblings that the pair hasn't exactly been getting along. While Simon denies any sort of feud, if you read between the lines, it's clear that they won't be having slumber parties and painting each other's toenails any time soon. Cowell told reporters, "I wouldn't say that we didn't get on well. I don't know Ellen that well. It was a difficult position for her, because she started work on the Hollywood week, which is a quite difficult show to do."
According to shrill gossip blogger and almost celebrity Hilton, the manager of the Black Eyed Peas planted a "boom boom pow" in Perez's puss this weekend. That roar you almost heard was grateful, repressed applause coming out of Hollywood.
A faux journalist (nee: rumor mongering hack), Hilton jumped onto the TV viewers' radar last month when he served as a judge for the Miss USA Pageant and started a war of words with Miss California over her stance in gay marriage.
Good news for fans of celebrity gossip dished out by a gay man with a love for MS Paint: popular online muckraker Perez Hilton is coming to VH1 as the host of What Perez Says, a series of one-hour specials that Hilton himself is describing as "like PerezHilton.com come to life, but even juicier." The new series debuts in September.
I suppose it's somewhat ironic that Perez is becoming part of the celebrity world he so gleefully attacks on his blog. Of course, in this age when almost everyone is a celebrity in some form or another, it's not too surprising.
Perez Hilton, the annoying Internet gossip who is fond of outing people who don't want to be outed, was being profiled for a segment on 20/20's year-end program about this entire YouTube/blogging/Internet phenomenon thingy I've been hearing about ad nauseum. Almost as soon as he starts talking about Lindsay or Paris or Britney or whatever, the program breaks in to announce that Saddam Hussein has been executed. Since Perez's yapping suddenly seemed insignficant in comparison (imagine that), the show decided to stay with the Saddam story, playing segments created in anticipation of the Iraqi dictator's inevitable execution. So, at least in the Eastern and Central time zones, Perez's appearance has been lost to the winds of history.
To be fair, Harvey Levin of our corporate cousin TMZ.com was also profiled in the piece, so that site's moment was also lost. But I was more gleefully happy to see Perez's moment get pre-empted because, well... I don't think Harvey is a pimple on society's ass. Not sure what I was more happy to see: Saddam's hanging or Perez's momentus interruptus.
