In Perez Hilton on March 3, 2008 at 9:45 am

According to a NY Times article quoted in Rolling Stone, Perez Hilton is being courted by Warner Music Group to have his own label.

Heck, I knew that with dowloads and everything, the music biz was going down, but is it that bad?

But apparently Mario has got major viral swagger. According to Jeff Leeds of the NY Times, Perez has already made manifest his influence:

“Mr. Lavandeira’s seal of approval has proved valuable to more than one little-known act. In September the unsigned singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson found he had received a boost after Mr. Lavandeira posted a link to his music and lavished praise on it. Mr. Hutchinson’s album cracked the Top 10 on iTunes, an impressive feat for an artist with no label backing.”

Perez, as usual, has the final words:

“I think I could do a lot for them [talkin’ about Warner] Madonna’s leaving, Perez is coming.”
