Lily Allen and Perez Hilton in Twitter war; Allen calls Perez ‘bitter queen’

Perez Hilton and Lily Allen just can’t stop their deathmatch. Last night the pop star and the gossip blogger got into a nasty (and funny) Twitter war. Perez told Lily that “If I wanted to be a f–ked up Brit, I’d rather be Amy Winehouse.” Lily called Perez a “douchebag” and a “parasite”. Yikes.

This is the second “Twitter War” or “Twitter spat” that Lily has been involved in in the past week. Her album, It’s Not Me, It’s You, is number one in England. Just as a rule, I’d rather side with anyone other than Perez. Perez is a pretty nasty misogynist, but calling him (in Lily’s words) a “bitter lonely old queen” is a bit much. Still, Lily was provoked. It’s a tough call, but I’m erring on Lily’s side. The Daily Telegraph has more, including some of the juiciest excerpts from the Twitter war.

Pop singer Lily Allen and gossip blogger Perez Hilton engaged in a very public spat on Twitter last night. Allen described Hilton, who has made a career out of mocking celebrities, as a “little parasite” and a “bitter lonely old queen” in a flurry of messages seen by tens of thousands of the pair’s followers.

Hilton hit back by claiming that the British star only sold her albums in the US by slashing prices, adding: “If I wanted to be a f***** up Brit, I’d rather be Amy Winehouse”.

The pair have clashed online in the past, with Allen using her MySpace website to attack the blogger’s claims that she smoked during her pregnancy.

But is the first time they have crossed swords on the increasingly popular microblogging website, which allows users to exchange short, quick messages. Although most users of the site are unfailingly courteous, the instant nature of the communication does allow the rows that develop to quickly spiral out of to control.

Hilton began the exchange by encouraging other Twitter users to persuade Allen to cast him in her new music video. The rest of their spat went as follows:

Allen: oh, I’m sorry, we’ve already cast the jealous and bitter lonely old queen role. Next time eh?

Hilton: Jealous of who? David Beckham, maybe. And if I wanted to be a f***** up Brit, I’d rather be Amy Winehouse – whose got talent.

Allen: god, you’re like so obsessed with me its embarrassing.

Hilton: Hilton: Congrats on your album doing well in America, though. It’s REALLY HARD to sell copies when u discount it to $3.99. Desperate!

Allen: its also number one everywhere else in the world douchebag. Go away you little parasite.

Hilton: Aw, u can see I’ve lost weight! I am a littler Perez. But I’m still a big fat c*** – just like U! That’s why I lova ya. xoxo

Hilton: P S Thanks for advertising on my website. I’ll take your money (or the label’s) anytime!

Allen: I know you will, and that’s what makes you a cheap ass whore. Now leave me alone, stop following me, I’m working. Bye x x

Hilton: It’s not fair and I think you’re really mean! You’re supposed to care! It’s not fair and it’s really not ok.

Perez sounds like he was having more fun with it. Lily seemed genuinely irritated. This isn’t the first time Lily and Perez have gotten into it, and I sort of admire the fact that she doesn’t back down to a bullying blogger. Looks like both Lily and Perez got some free promotion out of this one, so maybe they’re both geniuses! Not really.

    its all a made up fued to get noticed. it works for her and it works for him to keep their name in gossip blogs

  2. Ugh says:

    Ugh he is such a parasite. And you’re feeding into it by posting pictures of him.

  3. kiki says:

    he is a parasite he looks like he lost weight look at him eat ice cream . too funny. Lily Allen is just a another version of Amy Winehouse she just takes shower’s on a regular basis.

  4. vale says:

    He is such a bonafide loser that I’d side against him no matter what.
    Especially in this case though, considering he started it by spreading unsubstantiated rumors at her expense.

  5. Jean says:

    I don’t read his shiz anymore because so much of it is just Perez uber-dissing female celebs with hot boyfriends. This does strike me as bitter, and boring.

  6. Sauronsarmy says:

    I guess he was reading his own comments? I didn’t realize he lost so much wieght.

  7. dovesgate says:

    Team Lily. Perez really does come off as a jealous and bitter old queen.

  8. aleach says:

    i really wish perez would fall off of the planet…

  9. Jackie says:

    They are both losers. At least Perez’s claim to fame is being an asshole. She is supposed to be a “singer”, but all she is ever in the blogs for is bashing someone else or staying ignorant things about drugs/alcohol because otherwise she doesn’t get any attention! She’s a horrible singer and hopefully her “career” won’t last long. Her and Katie Perry both!

  10. Mairead says:

    What has she said that’s untrue? Well… apart from calling him old.

  11. Diva says:

    I don’t think “bitter lonely old queen” is “a bit much”… I think it’s being generous.

  12. YoMomma says:

    I quit going to his site months ago. I much prefer celebitchy.

  13. Baholicious says:

    He has his niche and he fills it well so we can’t crap on him for that.

  14. doodahs says:

    It’s fake. They just do it to keep each other in the tabs…. neeext.

  15. jess says:

    obviously in fun…she says to leave her alone, then signs with hugs “bye x x”

  16. Gloaming says:

    They’re both famewhore’s,but at least Lily has one redeeming quality and that’s not pandering to Perez Hilton like Katy Perry and Lady GaGa have.

    They seemed to seek him out to raise their profile and aide their chart success.

    Lily has always been outspoken and mostly pretty mean about other stars in the past (she seemed to curtail that) but this time i’m on her side,she takes things said about her in the press really personally.

    She shouldn’t lower herself and respond to him though, it makes her look as childish as he is.

    Keep promoting your album Lily…………………..oh, perhaps that’s exactly what you’re doing.

  17. Polkasox says:

    Ditto Jackie. He’s never claimed not to be an ass. She gets mad that no one takes her seriously, well boo hoo, quit getting smashed 5 nights a week.

  18. Amy says:

    What is with the last sentence from PH?” Its not fair! You’re supposed to care!” …. What?

    Team Lily any day. She may be opinionated and a little into the drugs & grog, but she HAS done other things. Perez, on the other hand, has never done anything aside from diss other people. He is what is wrong with this world and its getting old. Just die in an earthquake already, Perez.

  19. Amy says:

    Oh, and just because PH admits that he is a jerk, doesn’t make being a jerk okay or justifiable in any way.

  20. ChristinaX says:

    I think Lily Allen is a jackass, but Perez Hilton seriously deserves to have his ass handed to him.

    I’m so sick of him.

  21. Ter says:

    He inserts himself into the dialog as if he were the moon, the stars, and planets. Add to the fact that he breeds total contempt and fostors the most vile language on his site and you have a self promoter like no other and a totally disgusting person. So yeah, he is vile and deluded.

    Who cares about Perez Hilton? How do you get a date with the girl pictured, in the upper right hand corner? She’s hot!
