Perez: I think what I do is noble. I think my job title is entertainer. I shine the light on celebrities behaving badly, and I also shine the light on those that get it right.
Perez: I'm doing things on my own terms. I don't have to answer to anyone but me.
Perez: When I go to parties people recognize me and that's another contact, another tool in my bag of tricks. I don't even have a publicist. I work it.
Perez: I realize my time is now because I'm young and things are hot and happening. I may be yesterday's news next year.
Perez: If I was the kind to have regrets, I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing.
Perez: [on the future] Next year will be one of two things, I am gonna fall or it'll be even bigger and better and crazier than this amazing year has been. I am hoping bigger and better, but I'm prepared for the other one too.
Perez: I get stories because people know that I will never lie or make things up or pay for information. I apply a journalistic standard to my work.
Perez: In my own subservient way, I am trying to make the world a better place. I will push the envelope. I'm not afraid to offend or be dangerous, whatever - because I can. It's my website. I can do whatever I want.
Perez: [on how his success has come with a price] I go out six out of seven nights a week to one or two or three events a night. I don't get enough sleep. I probably get maybe five hours on a good night. I always make sure any hotel I'm staying at has internet access before I agree to stay there.
Perez: Some celebrities are afraid of me because some are afraid of the truth, and then some love me because they have a sense of humour and they don't take themselves too seriously. It's 50-50.
Perez: I'm not a celebrity. I don't take myself too seriously. I know where I stand in the food chain. And no matter how much of an insider I ever become or am, I'll still always be an outsider.
Perez: There's only one me. I'm obsessed with pop culture and celebrity. I used to be an actor, I used to be a journalist and I used to be a publicist. I know how all these people think.
