I actually said out loud “Sweet Jesus” when I read about this.
Perez Hilton has a clothing line for Hot Topic.
Oh My God.
And it actually gets worse when you read his commentary about his designs.
“It seems natural to make products that my readers will love and hopefully some guys will rock it too,” he said. “Some people might even call me a perfectionist, well that person would be me! I’m very passionate about my brand. I have extremely high standards and I like to get my hands dirty!”
“I’m most excited to finally see on the shelves products that are good and affordable for my readers,” Hilton said. “I actively sought out Hot Topic for that reason.”
I would note a source for these quotes, but they’re everywhere (Admittedly, the pic is from Gawker, which I NEVER reblog). I almost hate that I’m blogging about this. There is not ONE THING fashionable about his “collection.” It’s ridiculously cheap and tacky. It’s not even in the same book as “good.” I guess he thinks his market is goth teenage girls (which is what I think of when I pass Hot Topic)….who knows. I don’t read Perez, and I certainly don’t want to go near his clothes.
He even hates on Lauren Conrad saying:
First of all, I’m not an LC fan. Even though her line is overpriced and outdated, at least it’s somewhat wearable. Perez’
designs clothes crap looks like the 80’s took a dump on it.
This is my favorite:
“2008 is all about expanding the Perez Brand,” the blogger explained. “I talk about clothes all the time on my website. I have a good eye for what’s hot and what’s not.”
Ummmm….yeah, good luck with that brand, and maybe you should check into getting some glasses.
Sorry to be so rude, but he just went to far. Couldn’t he stop with the John Mayer scandal?? Maybe this is all a joke. I really hope so.
