Perez Hilton to Launch Record Label
07/10/2009 - 12:20 ||
Perez Hilton, the self-proclaimed Queen of All Media, is delving into yet another area of media domination: music. Warner Brothers confirms that Perez will have his own label imprint with the company, where he will work to develop his own artists. He plans to announce his first artist by the end of this month, and has hopes for a tour soon after. “I have an ear, which is really important in the music world—to be able to hear a hit and to be able to know who has a good song or not,” Perez tells Entertainment Weekly.
This announcement won’t come as a surprise to fans of the gossip blog, as Perez has been featuring bands and songs from relative unknowns who come to find that when the Queen is on your side, your shot at superstardom becomes more of a reality. Just ask Lady Gaga! “I saw the potential in Gaga from the very beginning before anyone else,” he boasts. And with his unique position in media, Perez hopes to do something different with his love for music. “I’m more than just an A&R person. I’m also a marketing person. I’m also a manager.”
Tell us: Do you think Perez has what it takes to dominate the radio waves in the same way he's dominated the world of online celebrity gossip?
