Perez Hilton and John Mayer… really?

So supposedly, Perez Hilton and John Meyer hooked up! Is this some mean day after April Fools day joke?

Do I even need ethics?

Said Perez:

FYI: Mayer’s rep did NOT deny this. Cuz it’s true.
P.S. John’s a really good kisser!

So you’re probably wondering, exactly what is the issue at hand? No, we’re not jealous of Perez Hilton (well, maybe a little jealous since he’s worth so flipping much), but really what our question is, where are the ethics here?Perez Hilton has huge readership numbers, and one kind of wonders if putting himself in the story (or industry that he covers, rather) is responsible of him. Then again, do bloggers even have ethics since their work is so opinion driven? We mean, bloggers are begging to get credentialed with journalists!Just in the nick of time for this post, there will actually be a panel today discussing blogger ethics. We’ll talk about the results of this panel when information becomes more available.As for now- what standards do you think bloggers should adhere to? If any at all? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you. Leave us a comment. Your responses just might end up on this here blog!Oh yeah– If you’re still wondering if the drama has settled in the least bit with Perez Hilton and John Mayer, here it is: John Mayer’s peeps (yes, peeps) are now denying this story, and Perez is saying that he would even take a lie detector test to prove that his story is true.
