Perez Hilton has accumulated quite the list of descriptors over the past few years: snarky gossip; cyber-bully; troublemaker. But now he can add a new one to the list: children’s author.
That’s right, the prolific celebrity blogger has written a children’s book called The Boy With Pink Hair, about a little boy who’s excluded because he was born with shockingly pink hair. In a press release for the book, Hilton comments that the “story is about every kid that’s ever had a dream, felt excluded, wanted to belong, and hoped that one day they could do what they loved and make a difference.”

If memory serves us correctly, didn’t Hilton rise to fame partially due to his fondness for picking on various celebrities? (via CBS)
