From blogger to Broadway — almost — for Perez Hilton

July 23, 2008

perez-hilton.jpgCelebrity blogger Perez Hilton began his rise to fame by gossiping online about the adventures — and misadventures  — of Hollywood’s bold and beautiful but now he finds himself being talked about with a musical about him set for the stage.

 From August 8-14, “Perez Hilton Saves the Universe! (or at least the greater Los Angeles area): The Musical” is running at the New York International Fringe Festival. Organizers describe the show as exploring  a normal day in Hilton’s life – well, were it not for the plans of evil terrorists and Kathy Griffin.  Throughout the day, Hilton wrestles with the demons of love, ego and celebrity, all whilst saving Los Angeles from an imminent nuclear disaster, with a pop music backing.

But not everyone is so enamoured by Hilton’s new-found celebrity status. ” Do we really need a Perez Hilton musical?” asks another rival celebrity blog.

Musical theater greats!?!? And just who are these people, and what makes this such a great idea? Sounds like a bunch of people trying to get some attention to me.

There are so many other great shows at the Fringe this year it’s a shame the ones that get publicity focus around “celebrity”. I’ve bought my tickets to the other shows because as in the past, those are the ones that are going to be the best.
