Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry play at Perez Hilton's birthday party
Even gossip takes a break for the odd celebration, like blogger Perez Hilton's birthday party Saturday on the Hollywood lot of Paramount Pictures.
Pals and enthusiasts including Katy Perry, Liza Minnelli, Lindsay Lohan, Eve and Justin Bieber attended the bash -- Perry and Bieber fresh from the Kids' Choice Awards. Circus performers and a dunk tank were featured, along with live performances, natch.
I'm told that British singer Leona Lewis kicked off the celebration with "Bleeding Love," followed by rapper Eve with her hit "Who's That Girl?" The man of the hour introduced Minnelli, who sang for about 45 minutes from her repertoire of hits such as "New York, New York."
Paula Abdul, a favorite Perez target, was a good sport, introducing a video package with happy birthday wishes for Hilton from the likes of Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue.
In keeping with her subtle style, Russell Brand's fiancée, Katy Perry ...
"It was Perez's dream for Liza to perform, but Katy on the elephant was his cherry on top," said EMC Bowery exec Ben Russo, Hilton's longtime rep.
Guests were treated to fried goods from Fat Burger and AriZona beverages, and frisk photo-ops with a Lifestyles Condoms photo booth.
Lohan served as guest DJ while Perez mingled with Bieber, Audrina Patridge, Ashley Tisdale and "Real Housewives" couple Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley.
