Perez Hilton to pen children's book
Wow - that book tour would be interesting.
...by becoming a bully? I wonder if he puts any children's pics in the book, is he going to draw semen dripping from their mouths?
Just because he writes it doesn't mean anyone will publish it. And if he gets it published doesn't mean people will buy it or read it.
I can not imagine this book being anything I would want my grandchildren to be exposed to. The man is a bully disguised as a social media reporter.
Oh, please. His core audience has got to be mostly people without children. Those that do have children have mostly grown up enough to realize what a pathetic person and bully he is and would therefore not purchase anything for their children with his name associated with it. I can't see how this is a good idea, at all. If anything he should write a book with a target of young gay teens, maybe then he would have something of substance to say and it wouldn't be aimed at children.
He'll probably self-publish it. That's the way to go these days anyway.
According to the article, he has a publishing deal:
The illustrator's website, with a link to the cover art:
IMHO when people who buy kids' books by "celebrities" they tend to buy books by "celebrities" who have a positive public image. Perez does not fall into that category.
On the other hand, some people will buy a book written by a celebrity just because of the author, especially his/her fans.
Oh, he'll get published all right. Big celebrity = guaranteed $$$ for the publisher, even if the book is awful. (Madonna, anyone?)
Is this a joke? Seriously? I thought April Fools was still a few days away.
Madonna's children's books weren't that bad - my kids borrowed them from the Library and liked them a lot. I read the first one and it was okay.
I think this thread would be fun if we could some up with some potential Perez kid's book titles. Like "Charlie and the Magic Fairy Dust".
Perez does have followers, and some of those followers have kids.
Madonna's first few children books made it t the NYTimes BestSeller List, and I'm not sure Madonna is what come first to mind of moms thinking about celebs with positive public image.
IMO, not at ALL a good analogy to compare icon, record-making, award-winning actress/singer, entrepreneur, businesswoman, philanthropist--and mother--Madonna with Perez Hilton!!
Madonna actually has some talent and skill. She is not primarily famous for being a gossip and writing rude captions on pictures.
When is Ron Jeremy going to write a children's book?
hope it's not a pop-up book
At least Ron Jeremy made himself famous, or a specific part of him made him famous. Perez only got famous for using other people and being a bully. I want someone to punch him in the face again, that was really fun.
I don't want to live in a world that doesn't offer a Ron Jeremy pop-up book.
Hard or soft cover?
Hard, definately hard.
Will it also have moving parts?
I heard of this guy's name but never knew what he did.. who is this guy?
Ron Jeremy's pop-up book might have really awesome pop-up pages but I bet it would still be ugly as hell.
A porn actor.
I've been trying to find contact for Celebra Children's Books. Best yet, a direct email/snail mail for Raymond Garcia, but haven't been successful so far. If anyone could help, I'd appreciate it.
I'm just dying to ask them a few questions about Perez. It's inconceivable that asshat has been recognized by any mainstream media, but in connection with kids? You've got to be kidding me.
I know who Ron Jeremy is. I have seen his porn videos. I was talking about Perez Hilton. Who is he and how he is famous??
Maybe Ron Jeremy's porn videos blinded you and that is why you haven't seen Perez Hilton before? Just go to perezhilton with a .com
Most publishers hide that information very carefully so they don't get bombarded by unsolicited manuscripts or harassed by wannabe authors.
It seems the book is being edited by Stephen Meltzer who oversees a couple of children's book lines at Penguin USA. I would write him an old-fashioned snail mail letter rather than trying to find his or Garcia's email.
OH the Places You'll Ho!(to make a buck) by Perez Hilton
Love how Ron Jeremy is more famous that Perez Hilton.
I have just seen him in every documentary about porn they seem to make.
If most or all parents were so hyper-aware of and sensitive to the problem of bullying, it wouldn't be such a problem in this and other countries. Unrepentant bullies and other types of jerks have kids, too.
My girls actually love Madonna's first book. Perez??? Just because he can sling celebrity crap doesn't mean he is anywhere near equipped to address children!
He's written two other books (which were more aligned to what he writes on his blogs), and I don't believe they became bestsellers. I think only his niche group will actually buy the book while everyone else who's simply curious about it will read it in the store then put it back on the shelf.
