Perez Hilton’s Getting A Label Deal

From The New York Times,

“Mr. Lavandeira [Perez Hilton] has been negotiating a deal that would provide him with his own imprint at Warner Brothers Records, a division of the music giant Warner Music Group, he said. This was confirmed by several other people associated with the talks who spoke on condition of anonymity because no deal has been made. The talks are preliminary, and an agreement is not certain, but Mr. Lavandeira could receive $100,000 a year as an advance against 50 percent of any profits generated by artists he discovers and releases through Warner Brothers, these people said.”

Wow.

Thoughts?

    There’s more value in the discussion around music than the actual music in itself. The gossip/talk fuels the online ad dollar and that’s where the dollar war is at. When your stock is in the basement you gotta grab headline attention in order to sway Wall St in the opposite direction

    well actually this completely makes sense seeing as how many of the unheard of artists he likes and features on his site end up blowing up and becoming bigger artists then they were before he features them…

    And he isn’t a “cracker” he’s Cuban… which makes him Hispanic… you ignorant fucks…

    and y’all on here busy wasting your day hating on him – he’s still making money and signing deals for books, tv shows, now record labels, and making BANK

    he’s a self-made media empire on the rise – why you mad? you jealous? stuck in them feelings?

    get over it and go make your own name for yourself… assholes
