Perez Hilton And Will.I.Am: Boom Boom Pow?

Last night’s MuchMusic Video Awards ended with Nickelback as the big winner, but the person who everyone is talking about this morning is Technicolor-haired gossip Mario “Perez Hilton” Lavandeira, who claimed to have been assaulted by lead Black Eyed Pea will.i.am and his bodyguard at an afterparty for the MuchMusic Video Awards. In the wake of the incident, the ever-fameballing Hilton Twittered for help, instead of calling the police, or getting a hold of any of the security guards who were presumably nearby. Who to believe? Why did this all happen? will.i.am took to his vlog to let out his side of the story, and claimed that a) the whole thing was basically the result of will asking the chronic MS Painter to lay off his bandmate Fergie, and Perez sneering that he didn’t “respect” her or will; b) it was an overzealous fan who resorted to fisticuffs, not will; and c) Perez, when he’s not peacocking as the country’s No. 1 gay-rights crusader, is not above flinging a homosexual epithet now and again. The embed, after the jump. Who to believe, indeed. I’m leaning toward Will, but that’s only because my distaste for Hilton is even higher than my dislike of “Big Girls Don’t Cry.”Perez Hilton [Twitter]tonite was a good (& kinda crazy) nite!! [iamwill]
