Singer slams Perez Hilton in revealing magazine interview


If the recent series of Celebrity Big Brother has taught us anything, it's that celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is no stranger to controversy or drama.

So we're sure claims made by Lance Bass against Perez in Attitude magazine will come as no surprise to the 36-year-old blogger.

Opening up about his experience of coming out as gay, former NSYNC* singer Lance admits that he was bullied by Perez.

Recalling a difficult time in his life, the 35-year-old singer said: "Two years before I came out I was really bullied on the internet by bloggers, that's when Perez Hilton just started and was really malicious against me."

Lance, who recently married boyfriend Michael Turchin, remembers being forced into revealing his sexuality, saying: "So, because of bloggers like him hounding me, all the other magazines started calling me and saying 'Look, we know you're gay, you can write the story with or without us, but we have to write it."

Under pressure, Lance decided to open up to People magazine and was thankfully happy with the piece they wrote, saying they did a 'great job'.

Lance and Michael tied the knot on December 20th last year and the celebrations were aired last week in a special E! presentation Lance loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding.
