Not that riveting reads like Teen Mom Jenelle Evans Can't Stop Smoking Weed!!! need to be typed up on a laptop in Los Angeles, but come fall, longtime la-la-lander Perez Hilton is packing up his blog and his baby and moving to the Big Apple.

Apologies for being a little late to the big news about the big move; we missed catching the big NYC move reveal video when it hit the 'net a couple of days ago, letting Hilton-ites know the reformed meanie who once enlivened paparazzi shots of target celebs with crudely drawn pink penises is now in an "Empire State of Mind."


Hilton himself calls the news "slightly scary and anxiety-causing." (For him or for New Yorkers, one might ponder.) But smack talk: Hilton only wants to be discussed if something nice is being said, according to the NY Daily News, who reports the blogger is only granting interviews if the outlet can guarantee a "favorable article."

The proud new papa--namesake son Mario Armando Lavandeira III made an early debut in February--his taking his surrogate-born boy, his mom, and his dog with him.

"I am so happy in my life right now. My son has really given me a center, and he has brought so much joy into my life, and I want even more happiness and even more joy, and I think I'll be able to find that easier in New York City," writes Hilton.
