Perez Hilton to help music countdown radio show

Posted on

Watch out Ryan Seacrest: Perez Hilton has announced he will launch a weekly music countdown show. The celebrity blogger told a Billboard reporter at SXSW: “I’m really excited about it…because I want a cooler alternative to Ryan Seacrest.” Hilton also hopes to conduct interviews on the show, and also plans to include varying genres of music. “I want to talk in depth with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and all these acts whom I have relationships with,” he told Billboard. “[I want to] ask them the questions that Ryan Seacrest would not ask them. I want to ask Justin Bieber, ‘Have you seen that website LesbiansWhoLookLikeJustinBieber.com?’ I can make fun of someone and still be a fan.'”
