Smurf on Jewel's Turf?

What's Jewel doing out with Perez Hilton?


The blue-haired Gossip Gangstar and the fantastically curved snaggle-toothed singer were spotted heading into Mr. Chow together last night -- in a spectacularly curious collision of worlds.

Surely he's not singing on her next album, and she's hardly scandalous enough to be gossip worthy, so what's the connection?

TMZ checked with the blueberry blogger, and Perez tells TMZ the two are friends, and met up for last night's Young Hollywood Awards. Another mystery solved by TMZ.com!
