My World, if you're in Justin Bieber's shoes, is not just the name of his album ... or his second album, My World 2.0. It's what the teenage baller rules. Hard.

The rest of us just live here. He should really charge rent.

VMA Appearance

Sure, the dude could keep a lid on it sometimes, saying Miley Cyrus isn't his type or that Mariah Carey is past her prime. But his sales back up his attitude.

My World 2.0 topped the album charts this week, making Justin Bieber the youngest male solo artist ever to score a No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

HIS WORLD: Justin Bieber. Cannot. Be. Stopped.

The prepubescent singer is also the youngest male solo artist to score two simultaneous albums in the top five (as My World rounds out this week's list).

With his forthcoming national tour dates and an upcoming April 10 appearance on Saturday Night Live, Bieber is inching closer to pop culture domination.

Oh who are we kidding, he's already dominated. Just be grateful you can even check out our gallery of Justin Bieber pictures and bow down to the king.

Kate Gosselin proved she's as good at being a diva as she is terrible at actual dancing, but she somehow survived to see another week on Dancing with the Stars

While Kate butted heads with partner Tony Dovolani this past week, wait until you hear what they have planned for next Monday's episode of the competition.

A Jon-and-Kate-themed dance.

We are totally serious. Tony will be channeling Jon Gosselin as Kate portrays herself in next week's storytelling assignment. Just let that sink in for a moment:

They will take her marriage implosion, which made celebrity news headlines for a year, into a high-step dance routine. And you think you've heard everything.

Dressed For Success

If Jon Gosselin makes a cameo next week, we'll retire.

"It's my story over the past two years," Kate said. "We're very, very excited." It will be very "Dramatic," promises Kate. To which Tony replies, "Lots of drama."

And ratings, most likely. Can Julianne Hough play Hailey Glassman?

Just to make sure we got the point, Kate reiterated, this time with a little more emphasis, that this is gonna be a dance with "Oh my gosh, so much drama."

As much as we could decry this shark-jumping, contrived nonsense as a low point in reality TV history, it's actually a pretty genius move on ABC's part since:

  • People love Kate and don't want to see her leave the show
  • People love watching Kate humiliate herself on the show

Either way, she's on the show. Punch her ticket to the finals now.

Fans will ultimately have the final say, but to THG, Michael Lynche and Lee DeWyze stood out most on American Idol Tuesday. The judges were certainly impressed.

In fact, Simon Cowell said that it was his cover of India.Arie's "Ready for Love" that finally made him a credible artist in his eyes. For the surly Brit, that's saying a lot.

Slowing things down with an acoustic guitar, Big Mike sounded great and wowed the panel and audience alike. We're pretty sure the voters will turn out for this, too.

Here's Michael Lynche singing "Ready For Love" ...

Lee DeWyze also made a statement last night, perhaps propelling himself to contender status with a soulful, raspy, powerhouse rendition of "Treat Her Like a Lady."

"This was the night your life may have changed forever," Simon said. Again, high praise from the man. Follow the jump to see Lee do his version of the classic ...

Miley Cyrus' first kiss with Liam Hemsworth wasn't the most tender of moments. It unfolded on camera – in front of an entire crew – during The Last Song.

Not that the Australian actor was disappointed when it happened.

"We turned up on set the very first day and originally it was just a scene where we were running through the water and splashing and having fun," he said.

All in her first movie acting gig. No wonder Miley's quitting music.

"And halfway through the scene, the director yelled 'Kiss!' And we got thrown into a kiss on the boat," he recalled on Ryan Seacrest's KISS-FM radio show.

While it was "hard not to get close" to his costar while filming in Tybee Island, Ga., "It was good, 'cause, you know, [you] get the first one out of the way."

Fancy Pair

"We were filming together every day, and hanging out every day," Liam added. "We really didn’t have any other friends down there, so we just hung with each other."

It also helped that Miley Cyrus' mother, Tish, whom Liam Hemsworth described as "the boss," gave a stamp of approval on the budding relationship early. Her dad?

Well, Billy Ray another pressing question for Hemsworth, which Seacrest relayed: "How serious is it gonna get?" Hemsworth's reply was simply: "It's pretty serious."

Gulp.

Recently, the couple stepped out for the first time as a couple on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of The Last Song, which hits theaters on Wednesday.

Hemsworth said he's still getting used to the media spotlight – not to mention attention that comes with a high-profile girlfriend: "It's all very new to me," he said.

New and hot. Don't you think these two make a great couple? Much as we are often critical of Miley, it seems like Liam's been a good, grounding influence on her.

Real, concocted or somewhere in between, information about Tiger Woods' affairs has been trickling out for months ever since his sordid double life was exposed.

But Mark Seal's article in the new Vanity Fair takes the examination into the golfer's shady dalliances to a new level with interviews from four of Tiger's women.

VF explores how the world's greatest and most famous athlete got to such a reckless, shamelessly addicted and confused point in his life. Excerpts below ...

A cheapskate

With many of his mistresses, Woods was allegedly exceedingly cheap. Mindy Lawton says the only thing he ever bought for her was a chicken wrap from Subway.

Tiger and Jamie Jungers broke it off, the mistress claims, when he refused to help her financially. Of the women interviewed, Woods spent money on only one:

Loredana Jolie Ferriolo Nude

Loredana Jolie Ferriolo (above), a Playboy model and hooker he met through madam Michelle Braun, went on $15,000 shopping sprees and charged everything to him.

Guess when you're paying for the sex anyway ...

A degenerate gambler

Woods’ preferred place to stay in Las Vegas was the Mansion at the MGM Grand, where a one-bedroom suite costs $5,000 per night and he'd gamble in the exclusive VIP casino nearby. According to a source known as Robin Hood 702:

“Sometimes the only people were me, Tiger Woods, and Michael Jordan. Each of us sat at a private table and played big. Tiger plays big. Up to 30 grand a hand … when you’re playing splits and doubles, you can have 150 grand on one hand.”

No wonder Jesse James was so into Michelle McGee.

Sandra Bullock's cheating husband and his mistress apparently shared more than bodily fluids an interest in tattoos - they both love some Nazi paraphernalia.

James, Jesse

A now-infamous Michelle McGee Nazi photo spread surfaced around the time she outed James' affair with her. Now a Nazi picture of Jesse has been unearthed.

It's not pretty, either, even as Nazi pics go.

Wow. As if Jesse James' image weren't tarnished enough ...

Wearing a Waffen SS visor and striking the Hitler "sleg heil" salute, it's clearly Jesse James in the photo, published by Us and taken roughly two years ago.

It's unclear where it was taken, but there looks to be a replica of an plane used by famed German WWI pilot Manfred von Richthofen, a.k.a. The Red Baron.

So is Jesse James a white supremacist? Probably not. But on the list of things that are hard to put a positive spin on, posing as Hitler ranks pretty high.

We're sure Sandra Bullock's divorce lawyer will have a field day with this picture. Think Jesse, who just checked into rehab, can get treatment for Nazism?

Just in case you thought you knew the real Angelina Jolie ... you totally don't. The humanitarian actress is actually a pompous bitch and a raging psycho!

At least according to In Touch, which quotes Brangelina's former bodyguard, supposedly, in "exposing" the "hidden truth" about the controversial star.

And we're talking worse than staging photo ops.

“In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centered and a control freak," the dude says. "She has no patience at all. She doesn’t do things out of kindness."

"And she’s totally psycho.”

Well, there you have it, fans. Brad Pitt really needs to run for his life and back into the arms of Jennifer Aniston as soon as humanly possible ... OR ELSE!

Angelina Jolie likes when the kids cry. Does she also kick dogs?

“Angelina has a a private and a public persona,” continues the former bodyguard, who for "security reasons" chooses only to be identified by his first name, Bill.

How far does she take these supposed mind games?

"She screams and yells a lot, then walks away,” Bill says. “She will disappear into her suite for hours,” leaving staffers - and Brad - to deal with her children."

"She would punish them with silence. I think she could be abusive at times in a mental way," he adds, even "giggling when one of her kids starts crying."

The guy says that while Brangelina used to have “a lot of laughing and fun” and “spontaneous sex,” now the couple often sleeps in separate bedrooms.

Shame. But it makes sense. You probably have to distance yourself from the maniac sometimes if you're Brad Pitt. One man can only deal with so much.

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler sure have great chemistry. Or know how to make it look like they do so that you'll go see their movie in theaters.

At the most recent press event in Madrid, Spain, for The Bounty Hunter, Jen chose a sexy short black dress with leather, lace and beading to wear.

Jennifer Aniston Dumped?

It was a wise decision, we feel confident saying.

By the look on Gerard Butler’s face, we can tell that he approves ... then again, besides Brad Pitt, what sane man would possibly raise objections?!

They are so the hottest rumored couple ever ...

Jen and Gerry heat up Spain ... and romance rumors.

While it sure beats the salmon-colored hideousness she rocked the other day, you have to wonder who wears a dress that resembles lingerie on the red carpet.

Well, we suppose a lot of celebrities would. But we expect a little bit more from Jen. Maybe she's just so smitten with Gerard Butler that she couldn't resist ...

Sarah Palin. Fox News. Those two things go together like Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas, or whatever smoldering celebrity couple du jour you prefer to use.

It's a terrific match is all we're saying.

The former Alaska Governor and current professional celebrity has already served as a contributor for the channel, and will do so again this coming Thursday.

That's when the 2008 V.P. candidate hosts Real American Stories.

The show is your basic celeb interview show in which famous Americans - Toby Keith, LL Cool J and former GE CEO Jack Welch - reveal secrets of their success.

Do they fight each other and/or Sarah Palin after? Otherwise, it sounds pretty boring. But you have to give it to Sarah, she is seriously everywhere these days.

Sarah Palin: The new face of ... well, everything.

She's got her book. She's got her new reality show on TLC. Pretty soon she'll be starting her campaign for the presidency in 2012. She's totally gonna be huge!

FYI, tomorrow is April Fool's Day. Coincidence? We think not.

American Idol's R&B/Soul night was the first episode of the finals to really shake things up, with a couple of unexpected standout performances and a few letdowns.

There were standouts you could have easily predicted, too, such as Michael Lynche, who won raves for a stirring rendition of India.Arie's soulful "Ready for Love."

Meanwhile, Lee DeWyze was terrific for the second straight week, this time turning the Cornelius Brothers' "Treat Her Like a Lady" into a contemporary rock song.

Both were enough to overshadow the outstanding Crystal Bowersox, who was solid just the same on "Midnight Train to Georgia" (with piano and no guitar even).

Andrew Garcia and Casey James both scored big with the judges and earned some badly-needed praise for "Forever" (Chris Brown) and "Hold On" (Sam & Dave).

Big Mike Lynche

Michael Lynche is one of the few who never disappoints.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Siobhan Magnus disappointed somewhat with her take on Chaka Khan's "Through the Fire," Aaron Kelly and Katie Stevens were average at best, and Didi Benami and Tim Urban will be the bottom two if we had to wager.

Agree with our take? Who do you think will go home tonight? Here's how we rank Tuesday's American Idol performances (with last week's ranking):

  1. Michael Lynche, "Ready for Love" (3)
  2. Lee DeWyze, "Treat Her Like a Lady" (2)
  3. Crystal Bowersox, "Midnight Train to Georgia" (1)
  4. Andrew Garcia, "Forever" (8)
  5. Casey James, "Hold On, I'm Coming" (5)
  6. Siobhan Magnus, "Through the Fire" (4)
  7. Aaron Kelly, "Ain't No Sunshine" (6)
  8. Katie Stevens, "Chain of Fools" (9)
  9. Tim Urban, "Sweet Love" (11)
  10. Didi Benami, "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" (7)
