Hilton's blog -- PerezHilton.com-- began as a hobby while he pursued an acting career. Since then, the site has grown into one of the largest entertainment blogs in the world. It began as a tongue-in-cheek critique on celebrity culture, but has shifted into a trusted entertainment news platform. As a celebrity himself, Hilton clocks over 4.5 million followers on Twitter and is viewed as a respected commentator on pop culture. He's laid the groundwork for turning blogging into a multi-million dollar empire.
He first featured Minaj in an interview on his website in 2010, and has nothing but good things to say about her achievements.
