Are any of you watching the fued between celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.Am play out on the internet today? Late last night after the Much Music Video Awards, Perez began a series of twitters accusing Will.i.Am and his security guards of assaulting him after Perez and Will.a.Am exchanged words over stuff Perez has posted about the Peas on his blog.
