Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is taking on his version of pop music. He told the Hollywood Reporter that he believes the real enemy of music isn't illegal downloading, but radio. Hilton, who has a daily spot on Carson Daly's morning radio show on AMP in LA, isn't keen on radio being used to promote the latest tunes.
He calls his compilations "Pop Up," meant to be like underground versions of "Now." He exclusively revealed to the Hollywood Reporter:
"I view this as a great outlet to promote lesser-known artists, and it’s a great vehicle for discovery," Hilton explains. "I was excited for the opportunity to create something different and that is an alternative to "NOW That’s What I Call Music!", which is just giving people what they know."
Hilton seems to think that radio isn't promoting or exposing a wide variety of artists. Capitol Cities "Safe and Sound" was actually on Perez's first compilation album. It then went to radio. His logic is sort of unclear, but the gossiper seems to have a message in mind!
