It was less than six years ago, Perez Hilton and Lady Gaga were the best of friends, partying together, going to events together and plotting their success. Now lets forward to 2014, where the blogger is claiming the superstar singer has been “poisoned” by fame.
The gossip blogger and recently opened up during an appearance on Australia’s “Mornings” show this past Tuesday.
“It made me really question and reevaluate my entire ‘friendship’ with her,” Hilton said, “and now I really feel like that whole time she was just using me, ’cause I knew her back in 2008 at the very beginning before she was famous. And I would’ve still been her friend now even if she wasn’t famous.”
“I think it was fame that just poisoned her. You know, what’s funny is that she has this album called ‘The Fame Monster,’ it’s her second album, and she became consumed by that which she was fascinated about. Fame can be a very deadly drug and it has damaged her personally.”
“I think that she, unfortunately, has become a victim of this character that she created,” he said. “Whereas instead of just being an artist, she became this freak, and this cartoon character, and so unrelatable to people. When she should be turning it down and being normal-ish and not dressing crazy, she just continued to do that … She thinks that she’s infallible and what has been proven these last 12 months now [is] she’s very fallible.”
