Perez Hilton appeared on HLN's The Joy Behar Show tonight to tell his side of the Miley Cyrus photo scandal. Dressed in a suit he apparently borrowed from the Riddler, Hilton took the moral high ground. Behar asked him if he had purposefully pixelated the photo to suggest the absence of undergarments. "I did not pixelate anything, I did not photoshop anything," said the gossipmonger. "I can't help it, Joy, if America has a very dirty imagination."

Hilton was unapologetic. He refuted child pornography charges, and in the process offered the most curious defense I have ever heard: "I think it's insulting to children to accuse that of child pornography." He also insisted that he would do it all over again: "If the photo agency that took that photo let me [post it], I would. It's not showing anything inappropriate."
