So this is what Perez Hilton has been up to lately…
The celebrity blogger and television personality took to NYC’s 54 Below over the weekend to perform a selection of show tunes and other tracks with The Skivvies. Part of band’s aesthetic is taking off their clothes in order to play “stripped down” covers of pop songs — and Perez Hilton was more than ready to join in on the fun.
Throughout his set, Perez performed samples of songs from “Rent,” “Rock Of Ages,” “Chicago” and “Grease,” along with a selection of funny stories.
“Who would have thought a few years ago that Perez Hilton would be singing on stage in his underwear? NOT ME!” Perez Hilton said in a statement sent to The Huffington Post. “I was so nervous to perform with The Skivvies at 54 Below, but I’m so glad I did. It was one of the best rides I’ve been on all year — the excitement of the moment! The getting ready for the performance! It was all so much fun. And such hard work! I put in the hours with my vocal coach AND with my fitness coach! I did my daily vocal exercises, countless sit-ups and I didn’t drink or cheat on my healthy eating for four weeks leading up to my performance. It was all worth it! The reaction I’ve gotten has been so positive! I can’t wait to do it again — and hopefully on Broadway soon!”
