Notorious nobodies

The internet allows anyone to become famous overnight. But is it incubating vacuous wannabes — or the household names of tomorrow?Celebrity-crazy blogger Perez Hilton, aka Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr, is talking to me on the phone while being driven out of Manhattan to the airport. “Before me, most blogs were very first person, like online diaries – ‘I woke up today, I had tea with my neighbour, I went for a walk in the park’ – blah, blah, blah. BORING! I didn’t want to talk about myself. I wanted to talk about celebrities and entertainment because they’re craaaaazzzzeee and they’re so much fun.”
