When the King of Mean Met the Queen of All Media

Mr. Nasty Simon Cowell is dropping a bombshell to "Extra," revealing that he actually likes the most feared man on the net, blogger Perez Hilton.

Cowell calls Perez, real name Mario Lavandeira, "fearless" and "controversial."

He also says Perez "has good instincts."

Is this the beginning of a beautiful friendship?
