    Well, in Japanese porn, a lot of the times, the crotch shots are pixelated and it has never failed to stimulated the Japanese porn-viewing community. I think there were some sort of laws forcing them to pixelate those images.

    Of course, there's also the acts themselves that may be doing the stimulating.

    I am ashamed to say I know this but Perez has been posting a LOT about Miley. More than he normally does, which is already a ton. The interesting thing is 90% of it is flattering when it never was before. Whether he wants to admit he was wrong or not, his actions speak so much louder than his words. I think he is afraid of action by someone in her camp and so he is butt kissing big time.

    Miley and dad have already said they aren't going to sue him; Miley basically rolled her eyes over the whole thing, called Perez an idiot and said she didn't want to think about it any more.

    I don't think he's afraid of them; I think he wants his sponsors back.

    I think you are right. I forgot about the sponsor thing. ABC apparently pulled all their ads from his site, which is funny because they are behind his radio program.

    He is a stain. He lost points with me during the Black-Eyed Peas scandal. Calling WillIAm a f***ot. Whenever a celeb was rumored to have said something homophobic, he'd be all over them like an ice dancer at a sequin clearance sale. Then he turns around and does the same thing and he tried to justify it.

    Plus when he first started, it was about skewering the celebs. But then he wanted to BE one, and it turned him into a huge hypocrite.

    I read somewhere this week that he actually no longer owns PerezHilton.com and it's kind of a mystery who does. He's not likely the one calling the shots on this, he's just the talking head now.

    The thought that Miley should be treated like an innocent young girl is hilarious. What was she, 15? when she posed for was it Vogue or Vanity Fair? That was 10x racier than a pixilated crotch shot. She dresses like a ho...and how many innocent young girls hump a pole in their singing act?

    In a way I feel sorry for her and I wonder where her parents are when all this is going on. She has grown up way too fast...someone in her life should put the brakes on if she's too stupid to censor herself.

    I believe that he incorporated, sold the website to his corporation and is the majority shareholder; not sure of that, but if that's the case, he still calls the shots.

    If the law says 18, it's 18, regardless of how the child in question behaves.

    Here's the whole performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxUr2ggLlhI

    At what point do you see her humping the pole?

    He has sponsors? ABC is one of them? It's good to know. I wonder how they feel about him drawing semen dripping from people's faces on his blog. You think they would tell me if I wrote them to ask?

    How is posing backless for a mainstream magazine "10x racier than a pixilated crotch shot" ?

    Reall? Given Perez's lack of backbone, I always thought it was some kind of quick fix corrective fluid, when he makes an ass of himself.

    I wondered that, too. They sponsor the site with that garbage on it, but they pull their ads because of a pic posted on Twitter?

    I get the whole child porn thing, but really--are they worried that their "family image" is tarnished by association NOW, but everything was just fine before?

    But she looked like she'd just been rode hard and put up wet! What were the six year olds to think? :drama:

    My daughter was about 12 at the time and thought Miley looked like she'd gone to bed without washing off her makeup--a look she was familiar with because it was common among some of the girls in her middle school. She thought Miley looked ugly and was surprised the photo was in a magazine. And that was about it.

    Humping the pole is probably taking it too far, but:

    We're not the only ones who called it pole dancing. That's the way it was perceived by a lot of people.

    Regarding the backless photo, how many 12 years olds read Vanity Fair? I don't think the Tweeny market was the one she was trying to get at on that one. I don't think it was a particularly pretty photo, and maybe they were trying to pass it off as "artistic". But she was 15 at the time and even though it was only backless, wasn't the point to make people think she was topless under the sheet?

    I don't understand the anti-Perez sentiment in this thread.

    Celebrities are only celebrities because they get media coverage.

    And nothing like a scandal or a panty-less shot to get it.

    Miley Cyrus may be underage but she's been been publicising her solo career by making a switch from Disney Princess to Slutty Lolita. No doubt, showing her crotch was part of that marketing strategy. :scream:

    Yes, and I think everyone who said it is a little hysterical. She dropped down (while she sitting in her taxicab), she came right back up, and her crotch was as far from the pole as it could get while she was holding on.

    Pole dancing??? Really?

    How many of them have internet access and couldn't miss the photos because of the SKANDAL?

    I thought the point was to make her look like she had just gotten laid--it was very morning after the night before. The entire layout was, to me, a portrait of Miley's budding sexuality, and I thought it was wrong of them to expose Miley in that particular way. But it's a problem that she's topless under the sheet? Er......

    Perez has been working long and hard to make people feel like they do about him. Even many of his previous readers think he's trash. If you want to be a tree-hugger, go and hug a tree, don't try to hug Perez. He deserves what's coming to him, and more.

    I have read his website a lot a while ago when I worked somewhere I had pretty much nothing to do :p but not much besides that.

    So I admit I don't know much about it.

    Why is he hated that much then?

    Yup. I think he's pretty phony. And even though he has lost a lot of weight and stopped dyeing his hair in those shitastic colors, he still is gross-looking.

    When he outs people, he never backs it up with anything substantial, just photoshops pics of the celeb in question with fake semen dripping down the sides of their mouths....very HS.

    Yes, pole dancing, really. Even if she wasn't hanging upside down on it, she's dancing on top of a "Miley's Ice Cream" cart around a pole. What else is it supposed to be taken as? And since when is questioning something getting hysterical? There are plenty of young singers who aren't acting like that and when one does, people are going to notice it.

    Just few things among many others:

    - HYPOCRISY (and that's a big one). Will post trash about some people repeatedly, but won't touch a few like Paris Hilton. Has been called out on it many times, but ignored it. But he does claim he's fair to everyone.

    - Viciousness. He doesn't get the concept of enough is enough. No mercy if he chooses his target. If your own readers are pleading with you to be human...:

    - Outing people and trying to justify it. Some people will come out on their own when they know he's planning to out them. Case in point, Lance Bass. Perez of course took credit for it. "It was good for him". Coming out is good, but on one's own terms. Lance wasn't so happy to be pushed.

    - Thinking he helps the gay movement. See the point above.

    - Drawing semen on people's faces. He cannot be expected to be taken seriously if he does shit like that. Period.

    - He is a disgusting pig. Inside and outside.

    Thanks.

    I can totally see the first two points you mentioned, I remember that from when I was still reading his website.

    Well I see "show business" as such a total cesspool that I believe that celebrities deserve everything they get and I don't have any such reservations, though. ;)

    Get a real job! ;P

    Really? Then you're worse than Perez, he at least stops at bodily harm. Maybe because he could never win.

    You know, I understand that point about celebrities who really have no talent and live solely off their image.

    However, many actors/performers are tabloid fodder just because of their popularity as opposed to them actively seeking out to have their privacy encroached by paparazzi and gossip columnists who go beyond curiosity, snarkiness and get into malicious territory.

    As for the "get a real job" point goes, well, many celebrities do have real jobs and clock in long hours on sets/rehearsals/etc. to do their job and in order to do their job, many of those celebrities have to put in an exerting amount of mental and physical work. I once watched an interview with Maggie Smith where she said people have an idea of acting that it's all glamor and easy work when it's really exhausting and requires and an amazing amount of discipline.

    I'm not going to compare say...the likes of Kim Kardashian and Heidi Montag to that of a Maggie Smith who cares about her craft nor am I saying that people who make their money and fame out of such exposure shouldn't also be exposed to the negative side of it since it is a double-edged sword. However, at the same time, I find a lot of the negative attitudes towards celebrities (which everyone can be guilty of at some point(s) of their lives) can go so overboard that people are willing to excuse all kinds of extreme negative attention and behavior by the "press." No matter how damaging it is to the subject. Just because we figure Hollywood is a "cesspool" we feel they deserve whatever they get, right?

    As someone riding around on stage on an ice cream cart, holding on to a pole because otherwise she would fall off? She wasn't dancing. At one point, she bent her knees. Otherwise, she was just standing there, holding on.

    When it is an overreaction.

    :2faced:

    For the the reasons mentioned by WindSpirit, I think that Perez is vile. And I don't think most of his targets deserve it or have asked for it.

    As for Miley, I'm guessing that more men find her "Can't Tame Me" video to be more of a turn on than the photo Perez linked to on his site. That still doesn't make it right for him to do that. Even if Miley is taking the not ucommon route of Disney girls to go very sexual to try to transition to adult pop star, that still doesn't mean it's okay for Perez to do what he did.

    I didn't mean everything literally but in the "tabloid banter" sense. ;)

    And if you don't want your coochie to be shown to the general public then uhhmmmmm WEAR SOME UNDERWEAR MAYBE? :p

    VIETgrlTerifa - you are of course right.

    But the vast majority of Perez's posts are about people like Miley Cyrus and the reality circuit freaks. It's not like he discusses serious artists because that's not what his target audience is interested in.

    MILEY WAS WEARING UNDERWEAR. Perez posted a link to a picture of her with the crotch pixilated and a warning attached, which made people THINK she wasn't wearing underwear, even though you can clearly see that she was in other pictures taken at the same time. He posted the link on Twitter, not his web site.

    Exactly. I just watched Miley's performance from Much Music, where she swayed her hips and thrusted while wearing a black leather-mesh bikini top and short shorts. I think it's completely :rolleyes: (especially since the song was supposed to be fun and not sexy) but it's no excuse at all for Perez to do that.

    Sorry, but I think it's completely invasive. It's one thing to pose for Penthouse; it's another thing to be minding your own business and have someone stick a camera up your dress.

    But if you're a celebrity you know that you will be being photographed every day by the paps.

    Which leads me to think, that if you are photographed without underwear, you most likely knew very well what you were doing and was hoping for a SKANDAL to revive your flagging popularity (or promote a new album, etc.).

    People like Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, etc. depend on their pictures being shown in as many media outlets as possible.

    If you have chosen this line of work, how can you then turn around and say "but I want privacy?"

    How can we distinguish between a celebrity forgetting themselves and spreading their legs wide exiting a car and a celebrity doing that on purpose so that the picture is posted/printed everywhere and widely talked about?

    And prostitutes can't be raped, either, right?

    How about we don't distinguish between them and just not have paps sticking cameras up skirts? There are plenty of outlets for those who want to put themselves on display and then we don't have to worry about invading the privacy of the rest.

    I don't understand his point about any celebrities. If they have no talent, the reason that they can live solely off their image is because we, they public, pay for it. We pay to read the articles, see the pictures; we listen to the music. Even if it's indirectly, advertisers won't advertise if they don't think we'll read the articles, watch the TV special, or listen to the song. These celebrities have talent enough that we're interested enough to pay.

    Because their jobs are acting and singing (for the most part), so when that's done for the day over, so is their job.
