Perez Hilton has come around a bit on Miley Cyrus, who he has been quite critical of at times, following her respectable hosting of Saturday Night Live.
“I watched clips online,” he said. “I am Team Miley."
The turning point? "Once I stopped projecting onto her that which I wanted her to be and accepted her for whom she is right now, I thoroughly enjoy her."
"I’ve disassociated the Hannah Montana of the past. I’ve let go of any inkling of her being remotely a role model, and I just embrace her as the white Rihanna."
What does that mean, exactly? Explains the celebrity gossip expert: "Rihanna is not perfect. Rihanna has done a lot of things I don’t like. But I love Rihanna.”
