“PEREZ HILTON, The price to pay for been a famous celebrity gossip Blogger”

By Esteban "Steven" Escobar, Diversity News Publications ____________________________________________________

Celebrity gossip blogger, Perez Hilton posted on his blog on 6-22-2009 as his real name: Mario Lavandeira a video of the attack from Polo Molina, Black Eyed Peas manager.

http://perezhilton.com/tv/index.php?ptvid=0cd5e5f27f759

The video lasted about 12 minutes where Perez calls Will.I.Am “Disgusting Human Being.”
Perez appears to be very emotional and upset at the Black Eyed Peas on his video. He was in Toronto, Canada for the MuchMusic Awards as a presenter.

He mentions he does not need PRESS because his website has 10 millions + hits every day. He explains on the video the Will.I.Am confronted him while leaving Cobra Club after party.

TMZ.COM reports: “Hilton claims Will and his manager, Polo, followed him outside the club -- and then Polo punched him in the head "2 or 3 times."

Perez ended crying at the end of the video and disagrees of what did happen to him. __________________________________________________________
Editor Note: Diversity News Publications Staff, contacted him but as date of this story no response yet. If we heard from him we will add an update to this shocking and unacceptable incident. Mr. Hilton needs to hire a body guard when he is in public. I know he is not likeable by some people, but that do not give any one the right to attack him.

ALEXEN “COME ON & DANCE” SPECIAL EDITION

MUSIC REVIEW

“Come on & Dance,” Special Edition CD is a mission accomplished by the singer.”

Alex Laygo was born in Okinawa, Japan on September 27, 1970. He is a son of Filipinos parents who migrated to Japan. When he was 18 years Alex came with his family to the USA. ALEXEN is known as an Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Producer & Composer. Currently he lives in the City of Los Angeles County.

ALEXEN “Come on & Dance,” Special Edition it is combined from the first released in 2006 named “Come On & Dance” a pop/dance & electronica. In 2008 Merboys Entertainment Network released “Come on & Dance,” Special Edition. It is a single album featuring two versions. One is a regular album and the other is a Tsunami mix. Both songs feature special effects, sounds & electronic rhythm background. The songs for “Come on & Dance,” are perform, written, composed and remixed by Alex Laygo.

“Come on & Dance,” Special Edition CD is a mission accomplished by the singer. When you listen to both songs you want to sing, dance and move your body. The special effects, rhythm and meaning of the songs are great. The rhythm can make you want to follow it. Alex vocals are easy to understand, but I cannot hear some feelings or emotions coming out of the singer. Also vocals sound little bit dry, but with the background special effects and sounds it still can make you want to play it. I still want more from the singer to show cast his emotions & feelings of what he is singing. If a special appearance is scheduled I would like to listen and compare recorded album vs. live performance. I would also want to listen more about him on the radio. I would play his music on my car, Ipod & cellular.
