Perez Hilton draws more than 400 freaks to MOA


This story would have been much funnier if no one showed up at the Mall of America on Saturday, but leave it to Minnesotans to find even Perez Hilton to be a megacelebrity. Make us proud, Twin Cities! We couldn't think of a better way to waste a perfectly good weekend.

Star Tribune gossip columnist C.J. got her gossip on with new buddy Hilton this weekend, giving him far too much time to talk about how great he is. There's even video!

C.J.'s article recaps some of the greater moments of the interview, but check out the video to get the full effect.

Our favorite part? Hilton pays his mother to make his bed every day. Yikes. Or maybe we enjoyed Hilton's proof that he didn't really write the book he was signing at MOA. When C.J. quizzes him on some names mentioned in his rehab section (including U.S. Rep. Jim Ramstad, R-Minn.) he guesses they are sports players. Impressively embarrassing.
