Perez Hilton reveals his label's first artist: an EW exclusive

Perez-Hilton-Sliimy_lTwo weeks after confirming to EW that his label was definitely a go, gossip blogger Perez Hilton is sharing his first signing to Perezcious Music: French singer Sliimy (pronounced “Sleemy”). “I think that his music will make a lot of people smile,” says Perez. “It’s good, adult, quirky pop.” Hilton discovered the singer, whose album will drop on Sept. 14, after receiving an e-mail with Sliimy’s cover of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer.” Hilton posted the song on his site last December, and recently enlisted celebrity pals like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks to tweet “Who is Sliimy?,” creating instant online buzz. Sliimy is also opening some dates on both Spears’ and Perry’s European tours.

So what do you think of Sliimy, Music Mix-ers? Will he find pop success like Hilton’s pal Lady Gaga?

  • ben

    He looks like male-Mariah, like from the video Obsessed. No joke.

  • theJuanStar

    I love this artist. Sadly, I would not give Perez Hilton the credit by buying his CD. Good luck Sliimy, you’ll need to work extra hard to overcome the taint of Perez.

  • Lucy

    I don’t know where Perez finds these artists, but they should be grateful at least one person is paying attention.

  • mc_oconnor

    Couldn’t disagree more. What’s done is done. Complete smartypants shooter move on Hilton’s part. Guerrilla marketing at its best. The spotlight is on Sliimy now.

  • Mimi

    Not buying Sliimy’s album only because Perez Hilton recommends it is just nonsense ! Sliimy’s CD is a very nice surprise !

  • Ron

    To theJuanStar:
    You should support good music regardless of whose label the artist is signed to. Good music is VERY hard to come by anymore. Dont punish Sliimy just because you dont like Perez.

  • MWC

    I cannot wait to NOT support anything this idiot produces.

  • Max

    I would never buy any artist this guy supports.

  • theJuanStar

    I’m not saying that the Twitter introduction was brilliant. But I’m being honest. I will never purchase anything from the Perez Hilton label. And let’s not pretend that Perez discovered Sliimy. The artist is signed to Warner France and has two chart topping singles already.

  • Anthony

    I almost fell asleep listening to this…

  • Deb

    sorta reminds me of Tiny Tim from the sixties

  • Niiki

    Is this a joke?

  • danieldubois

    just so you know, Sliimy is signed to Warner in France. It’s not as if Hilton had just picked up some random unknown talent. there’s been massive marketing promotion and media behind this guy for some months now. anyway, good for him if he can hop the pond.
