“According to a new tweet released on Aug. 19, Perez Hilton is now revealing that he is receiving death threats from Lady Gaga fans who are supporting her in her fight against the celebrity blogger.” ~ Mary Jane, Canada Reality TV Examiner
According to his own website, PerezHilton.com, Perez Hilton is: “Cubano and Miami native Perez Hilton is the internet's most notorious gossip columnist. He currently resides in Hollywood with his precious mini-Goldendoodle, Teddy Hilton. The LA Times calls Perez, "like US Weekly, the Star, the Enquirer and Life & Style all rolled into one sweet yet snarky, sagacious yet salacious gay man." –
According to Wikipedia Lady Gaga is:
“Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (/ˈstɛfəniː dʒərməˈnɒtə/ STE-fə-nee jər-mə-NOT-ə; born March 28, 1986), known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, activist, businesswoman, fashion designer and actress.
Gaga wore a dress made of raw beef to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards which was supplemented by boots, a purse, and a hat that were also all made out of raw beef. Partly awarded in recognition of the dress, Vogue.com UK named her one of the Best Dressed people of 2010 while Timemagazine's named the dress the Fashion Statement of 2010. However, it received divided opinions, evoking the attention of worldwide media but invoking the fury of animal rights organization PETA.”
So now we learn that they are angry at each other, and it’s a Twitter war that is suddenly breaking out into suggested violence.
What can we learn from this?
1. Don’t believe everything you read.
These are two real people wearing very outrageous public masks. The “feud” is meant to stir you up, get them publicity, and get them your money. The feud is probably as real as the WWE, and manufactured to get your attention. Celebrities have people who tweet for them, who are told what to tweet by other agents. The celebrities themselves are probably not even aware of "the feud."
2. Enjoy the Feud, but not too much
If the “feud” is mean to stir up the fans, then be a fan and throw imaginary outrageous rocks, not real ones. Have fun with it. Write emails and tweet them. Sure, be a fan, but not a hazardous one.
Gaga and Perez are outrageous puppets, everyday trying to pull you over to their record shop to buy records, but they are real people with real families. Treat their private lives as real and as private as you’d treat your own. Remember what happened to John Lennon.
3. Consider the Characters
“Outrageous” is the word for these two, so consider each word put out in public by these two as designed to bring out the outrage in you. So go ahead and enjoy the outrage and the outrageousness, but consider the characters, and act accordingly. Wear meat for a hat and kiss your Goldentoddle in public, but when you get home, be your peacefully kind self.
4. Don’t Throw Stones
“You shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house and you got a glass jaw, you should watch yo mouth: cause I’ll break yo face,” 50 Cents and Benjamin Franklin.
