Renounced gossip blogger Perez Hilton really knows how to throw himself a wild party.

The flamboyant gossipmonger turned 31 years old a couple of days ago--and he celebrated in a rather pedestrian way by trying to work a street pole on a West Hollywood sidewalk in what can be loosely construed as a pole dance.

Perez Hilton wore a black kilt and flaming pink boots for the escapade.

I feel distressed for that pole.

Implications - Lately, the Internet has been ruled by bloggers such as Perez. Consumers are looking to access instant news about their favorite celebrities and are so idolized that even the bloggers that write about them have gained celebrity status. This industry shift focuses more on the antics of celebrities so that the consumer is always connected.
