Perez Hilton Gets An Elephant For His Birthday

And all I wanted was a pony…

Isn’t it ironic that a man who has built an entire career running his mouth about celebs actually had a ton of them show up to celebrate his birthday party last night? Either bridges were mended beforehand, or celebs really can’t resist an open bar and a chance to be photographed. (My vote is the second option).

Paramount Studios set the scene for Perez Hilton’s carnival-inspired theme party and included acrobats, clowns on stilts and plenty of drag queens. And that was just Perez’s dressing room. I kid, I kid.

Sort of.

The pink-carpet brought everyone from A-list to D-List and included the likes of Leona Lewis, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Lindsay Lohan, Ashley Tisdale, John Stamos, Audrina Patridge, Bridget Marquardt, Eve, RuPaul, Jake & Vienna, Shannen Doherty, Levi Johnston and the night’s headliner, Liza Minnelli.

Leona Lewis, Eve and Liza Minnelli performed at the party but the real show-stopper was when Katy Perry arrived on a massive elephant and yelled “This is for the biggest queer!”

A ton of guys turned around wondering if she was referring to them, but clearly she was only referring to the birthday boy.

Inside scoop
-La Loca Lohan wanted to avoid the red carpet altogether and tried going in a side entrance but Perez dragged her out to the press line to get a few shots in. And when I say shots, I mean photographs…but who are we kidding? She had plenty of drinks inside. Three words. MAJOR.HOT.MESS.

-Audrina Patridge apparently doesn’t do any red carpet interviews but was kind enough to talk to me inside, discussing fashion and her aching feet from her fabulous stilettos. Let’s hope there’s actually a future for her now that The Hills is canceled, much to my approval.

-Levi Johnston arrived with a semi-bruised eye, red-rimmed eyes and a bodyguard worthy of a Britney Spears/Beyonce security level. Really, Levi? Nobody wants access to you that bad.

-Jake & Vienna seemed happily engaged and disproved rumors of his wandering eye.

Even amidst the carnival-madness from last night, Perez is marching alongside Rosario Dawson, Andy Garcia and George Lopez today in Los Angeles for the Roots of Hope demonstration, in response to the injustices happening in Cuba and around Latin America. If you’re in LA, the march starts at 2pm in Echo Park.
