Definitely no love is lost between “Mindfreak” Las Vegas illusionist Criss Angel and celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton.
As Angel was ending his magic show Friday at the Luxor in Las Vegas, he announced that he had someone special in the audience, asking Perez Hilton to stand up.
“We have the world’s biggest douchebag asshole in the house!” shouted an agitated Angel.
Perez Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, smiled broadly and fired back: “Thanks for the free tickets.”
The buzz is that Angel berated the blogger after his camp saw Perez Hilton’s Twitter site, which carried real-time comments dissing Angel’s show, including “unbelievably BAD!” and “I would rather be getting a root canal.”
So what you say? Perez Hilton has reportedly 600,000 “followers” on his Twitter social networking site. That’s a whole lot of free marketing publicity.
