Perez is not only the Gossip Gangsta, but he’s also become a major tastemaker in the music biz. UK sensation, Mika, wouldn’t have had half the buzz here in the US without Perez singing his praises on his website. Thanks to Perez sneaking his tracks way before Mika’s Life in Cartoon Motion album dropped, I had already committed “Grace Kelly,” “Love Today,” and “Billy Brown” to memory like a crazy Dashboard Confessional fan. We met up with Mika on the rooftop of his West Hollywood hotel (and, yes, I know that sentence is classic cliché popstar reportage) and Perez fell asleep waiting for MIka to show. With Mika’s greeting of “Wake up, fucker” starting things off, we knew things would eventually devolve into food and fluids flying all over the place. Here is the aftermath. Find out how things came to this on What Perez Sez …about the VMAs on Tuesday, September 11 at 9PM on VH1. For more info go to perezsez.vh1 and for more juicy gossip, of course, there’s perezhilton.
