    Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr. (born March 23, 1978) is an American blogger. His blog is Perezhilton.com (formerly PageSixSixSix.com), which he writes under the pseudonym Perez Hilton. Lavandeira was born in Miami, Florida to Cuban parents of Galician ancestry and now resides in Los Angeles, California.

    Before beginning his blogging career, Lavandeira did a little actingwas briefly a media relations assistant for GLAAD, did some freelance writing for gay publications, worked as a receptionist for NYC gay events club Urban Outings, and was briefly the managing editor of Instinct, a gay men's magazine He says he started blogging "because it seemed easy."

    On March 11, 2005, within the first six months of Lavandeira's blogging career, PageSixSixSix.com was named "Hollywood's Most-Hated Website" by The Insider, catalyzing an initial surge in its popularity which temporarily crippled its server Lavandeira claimed that on July 30, 2007, a seemingly "ordinary day," Perezhilton.com had over 8.82 million page views in a 24 hour period Other sources dispute the reliability of Lavandeira's traffic claims

    Fergie has confirmed that she is referring to Lavandeira in her 2006 song "Pedestal," in which she criticizes an unidentified person for making negative remarks about her on the internet

    On August 17, 2007, citing exclusive sources, Lavandeira announced the death of Cuban President Fidel Castro, claiming that he was the first media outlet in the world to do so.[11] Although Lavadeira claimed that U.S. officials would be making an announcement within hours, no announcement was made, and no major media outlets verified Castro's death. The Associated Press later determined that rumors were sparked by a meeting of Miami officials who were to discuss the city's plans when Castro passes away. Rumors were further fueled by a road closure in the Florida Keys that was due to a police standoff.

    Perez Hilton is a celebrity blogger, that is he has his own website which covers any news or gossip that pertains to celebrities. To be honest I have no idea why he's famous, I'd like to know that myself. Maybe it's his pink hair or something

    He is a celebrity blogger known for his candor, no matter how blunt and sometimes mean. He covers celebrities on his website and just got a show on VH1 where he discusses them and interviews them. His flamboyant nature and honesty make him pretty funny, but some think he may go too far.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perez_hilton for more bio information. www.perezhilton.com is his blogging site.

    He is a celebrity gossip writer. He's famous because he's latched onto many celebrities, always making sure to name drop and post pictures of himself with them. His website is very popular. Eventually he got his own show.
