Rigorous private lessons on how to be royal.

Rumors about losing too much weight.

Scrutiny over when she'll have a baby.

Alleged kidnapping threats.

Kate Middleton has a lot on her plate these days, to be sure. But is Us' new cover featuring the Duchess trying to make her situation more alarming than it is?

Kate Middleton Under Pressure

Kate definitely has lost weight in the past year, but many brides do. And sure, people are probably waiting for her to get pregnant with a royal heir. But Kate is 29 and has been married less than six months. Is she really sweating it?

She's got plenty of time to raise a family and raise children. A girl's allowed to enjoy being married and getting acclimated to her new life for a bit.

Heck, if you believe Star magazine, she's already pregnant with twins. If her fake fertility is any indication, getting pregnant for real should be a breeze.

Phillip Lomax does not lack for confidence.

This 21-one year old waiter from Seattle did his best impression of Frank Sinatra on The X Factor last night, as challenging an act to emulate as almost any that a contestant could attempt.

Did he pull it off? Did he try to come across as too cool? And what do you think of the fedora? Check out Lomax's cover of "Fly Me to the Moon" now.

Elaine Gibbs is a 53-year old grandmother who turned a quiet Carole King classic into her own last night.

Auditioning for the first time on The X Factor, this wedding singer belted out "You've Got a Friend," receiving a huge ovation from the audience and unanimous approval from the judges.

Watch her snippets of her rendition below and then compare it to a couple other THG favorites from this week: Drew Ryniewicz and Josh Krajcik.

Drew Ryniewicz made Justin Bieber proud last night.

Well, correction: the 14-year old from Arizona made the man who signed Justin Bieber proud.

After learning that Ryniewicz is a huge Belieber (quick, do you know Justin's favorite colors? Drew does.), this young hopeful took to The X Factor stage, hoping to impress a panel of judges that includes L.A. Reid, who warned the contestant that he might be extra harsh because he's so close to the song she covered, "Baby."

But Drew had little to worry about it. Watch her full audition below.

Josh Krajcik shared his gift with X Factor viewers last night.

The Columbus, Ohio native attended auditions with his proud mother, who gushed over her 30-year old offspring before he took the stage, saying how she'd always dreamed of Josh blowing Simon Cowell away with his talent.

And then Krajcik proceeded to do just that. Watch Cowell's expression after the contestant says what he does for a living ("I sling burritos") and then adds with a straight face that he's gonna sing the Etta James classic "At Last." Impressive stuff. It's okay to cry, Mrs. Krajcik. We understand...

OMGOMG. Jennifer Aniston is totally getting a ring. Gasp.

That sounds awesome, but is it really a sign of an engagement to Justin Theroux? Or just more carefully-worded editorial brilliance from the desk at In Touch?

We'd say there's a 99.99 percent chance it's the latter.

A Ring For Jen

The tabloids are having a field day lately, with Aniston in an actual, loving relationship and Pitt somehow running his mouth about her - non-flatteringly at that.

At this point, a report that Justin Theroux threatened Brad Pitt seems almost believable. So the idea of them getting engaged has taken on an air of inevitability.

Slow down, though. Moving in together and getting married are two different things (just look at Brad). And no matter how "unique" and "meaningful" this alleged ring is, there's absolutely no proof it came from Justin, or that it even exists.

Kind of a strange call by In Touch on this week's cover. Why not lead with your alleged worldwide exclusive that Jessica Simpson is pregnant? Makes no sense.

Levi Johnston is running his mouth again. This time, the occasion is his book tour (yes, we're serious) for Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs.

While there are no bombshells quite up there with a Sarah Palin-Glen Rice tryst, Levi does reveal more than Alaska's most famous family would ever want him to.

Some excerpts from a recent interview he gave about the book:

Levi Johnston Book Cover

On the prospect of a Palin presidency: "'President Palin' is a phrase that scares me. She is apparently only 5 percent behind Obama right now and that's frightening me. I'm figuring I might have to move to Canada if she wins."

On his baby mama's book: "I didn't read Bristol's book (Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far). I heard a lot of things out of it, as far as "I'm a gnat" and how I stole her virginity. Her book is just flat out lying, it's disgusting."

Spencer Pratt may be broke and unemployed, but he doesn't owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to his former agent, despite reports by Us Weekly.

That's an easy rumor to shoot down, says he, because he never had an agent. Pratt chose to represent himself while "famous" from The Hills, et cetera.

Pratt and Heidi Montag worked with a lawyer when they were negotiating deals, but never involved an agency and paid their attorney in full ages ago.

V. I. Pimp

Spencer is now studying political science at USC and living at his parents' house rent free. Could be worse. He is not actively pursuing work in show business.

Not that anyone offered.

Heidi Montag, meanwhile, remains slightly less reviled than her husband and does have an agent. She currently has "a couple of projects in the works," too.

We don't know what those are, and frankly it surprises us, but we're told the agent does get paid. So ... there you go. Speidi: Not insolvent. Just irrelevant.

After last week's arrest of Steven Powell - the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell - on child porn and voyeurism charges, Steven's son and Susan's husband, Josh Powell, is also the subject of a child porn investigation.

Josh and his two sons had been living in Steven's house.

Powell, Josh and Susan

The Susan Powell case remains open and unsolved.

The accusation about the porn drew an immediate denial from Josh. "I have had nothing to do with any kind of illegal pornography," he said in court Tuesday.

Steven Powell, 61, was arrested in his Puyallup, Wash., home and booked on suspicion of 14 counts of voyeurism and one count of possessing child porn.
