Perez Hilton Defends Himself In Gaga Feud
Perez Hilton and Lady Gaga had quite a falling out a couple of years ago, and while the reasons have been very vague, Hilton now says it’s because his former “wifey” was upset that he asked her about his boyfriend and that drugs and alcohol made her act irrationally.
“She said in an interview recently that I was a ‘fake friend’. Now if you know anything, or one thing about Perez Hilton, I think, is that I am not fake and I keep it real,” he said in a recent interview with Wendy Williams. “And, I viewed her as an IRL friend – in real life friend. I viewed her as more than just a friend. I jokingly nicknamed her ‘my wifey’. To me she was that kind of friend…She got really upset because I asked her about her boyfriend. And I’m like, I didn’t ask anything inappropriate. Just me even bringing her boyfriend up set her off. But you know, when people are on drugs and alcohol, they behave irrationally, erratically and are mean to those they love.”
Gaga, on the other hand, says that Hilton was drinking during an interview with her and began saying rude things about her album, which upset her to the point of tears.
“What happened was we were doing an interview … and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions. He was being very negative about Born This Way and we had had a lot to drink. He was supposed to be my friend and I felt betrayed, so I started crying. My friend had to come in and pull the camera out, they wouldn’t turn the cameras off,” she told Howard Stern earlier this year.
Hilton told Wendy Williams that in reality, Gaga is just a user who tosses friends aside when she’s done with them.
“She globs onto people, uses them and once they’re no longer of use to her, will just throw them aside. That is what I’ve observed.”
