Perez Hilton says his stunning weight-loss was about feeling good, but we here at MTV News don’t believe that one bit. Actually, we think the only reason the celebrity blogger shed 70-plus pounds is so he could recreate D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel?)” music video for MTV’s “Retromania: Hip Hop.”
“When the D’Angelo video dropped, everybody was talking about it,” Hilton told “Retromania,” a new 60-minute special that pays homage to the 1990s and 2000s and officially kicks off on Saturday, February 1 at 2:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. “I can’t think of the 2000s and music videos without thinking of this iconic one from D’Angelo.”
Every afternoon this week, through Saturday, MTV viewers can catch previews of some hilarious “Retromania” segments, airing in between fan-favorite series like “Run’s House.” The launch week will culminate with the one-hour special, “Retromania: Hip Hop.” Celebs from 2 Chainz to Mac Miller and the Backstreet Boys to One Direction are all getting in on the action.
Armed with his banging bod, a shirtless Perez mouths the words to the soul singer’s classic while slow grinding to the beat and even licks his own arm pit. Yuck!
