Luckily, none of my critics have the guts to punch me in the face. But I suppose if one of my faceless, nameless tormentors did clock me upside the head — and lived to tell about it — my next move would be to file a really bitchy lawsuit. And then blog about it. Fun times!
It should go without saying that Perez Hilton has taken his alleged assault at the hands of the Black Eyed Peas to the next level. Here’s the introduction to his lawsuit against the Black Eyed Peas’ road manager, Polo Molina:
Of course, Perez uses the lawsuit to get another dig in at the Black Eyed Peas’ new album:
That the Black Eyed Peas’ new album kind of sucked is now a matter of the public record.
But after the jump, Hilton gets to the real point of the matter.
Popsquire lays out why this lawsuit could be more annoying to the Black Eyed Peas than your average, run-of-the-mill, “our roadie administered a beat-down, how much do you want,” kind of lawsuit celebrities are accustomed to:
The real question is how this will end. Civil lawsuits typically are about money and most often end in settlement. Perez likely has plenty of cash, so this lawsuit seems to be about proving a point and defending his right to blog.
You can hate him, but you can’t blame him for defending himself.
Perez himself makes his real point, later in the document:
“Violence is never the answer.” Wise words from Mario Lavandeira a/k/a Gandhi Hilton.
