I am a senior staff writer at THG and a big fan of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson. I believe Kim Kardashian is bad for society, but great for attention, and that The Real Housewives should all be banned from existence.

Has The Hunger Games found its Peeta Mellark?

Sources tell E! News that Weeds star Hunter Parrish is in serious negotiations to take on the male lead in this anticipated movie franchise. He confirmed to the site last night that he has "met the producers" and would be "grateful" for the opportunity.

Parrish hasn't seen a script for the film based on Suzanne Collins' bestselling novel trilogy yet, but it's one of the most sought after roles in Hollywood. (Alex Pettyfer is also under consideration to play Peeta.) Jennifer Lawrence is the leading contender to portray Katniss Everdeen.

Said Parrish of the outpouring of support he's received on Twitter: "You don't get much better than that. The true fans of the book. So regardless of whether I'm a part of the film or not, I feel honored to just sort of be thought of."

What do you think? Would this 23-year star be a good fit as Mellark?

Unlike her past two naked picture scandals, Vanessa Hudgens does not have Zac Efron to confide in.

But in light of yet another round of nude photos spreading across the Internet, the Sucker Punch star has a different man to whom she can turn: actor Josh Hutcherson.

Rumors of these former co-stars (they filmed Journey 2: The Mysterious Island in late 2010) dating started to surface a couple weeks ago. Are they an official item? We don't know. But they did take a motorcycle ride in Studio City yesterday, ending up at Vanessa's house, as seen here:

Kelly Clarkson will release a new album this year. Really. At some point.

But the first-ever American Idol champion has taken to Facebook and delivered sad news to fans: the CD won't be available until the fall.

“I recently found out that my album won’t be coming out until September," she wrote. "The album has been recorded, but I can’t release it until then. I realize that is a long time, but that’s the best time to release it apparently so I’m sorry for the wait, but I promise you it sounds great!”

Kelly Clarkson on Stage

Little is known about the upcoming album, but Clarkson has said it will possess a cover of Eric Hutchinson’s “Why Don’t You Try” and is “influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead and there’s a little bit of a Country vibe/influence on a couple of songs.”

He's known as the Silver Fox.

But, to Playgirl spokesman Daniel Nardicio, Anderson Cooper is more akin to an endangered, beautiful species. For that reason, Nardicio confirms that his magazine has offered $10,000 for a naked picture of the CNN anchor.

The Silver Fox

"He's got this charisma that a lot of our readers are attracted to, plus now he's all muscled, [so] he's not only smart but also hot," Nardicio says. "Both our male and female readers love Anderson."

Cooper tops Playgirl's list of "Top 10 Guys We Want To See Naked," which will headline its March issue. The tabloid hasn't released any other names on that list yet, but we're gonna go out on a crazy limb and say Justin Bieber might be included.

What do you think of the publication's offer? How much would you pay to see Anderson Cooper in the buff?

Howard Stern is a lot more than a man who loves boobs and hates Jay Leno.

He's also a divorcee who tells Rolling Stone this month how much he suffered following his split from his first wife, Alison Burns.

"I was upset that I failed and let down my family, my kids, my ex-wife. It was all very painful," Stern says. "I was totally neurotic... I knew things weren't right, and I said, 'Gee, where am I going to get some answers?'"

Howard Stern on Rolling Stone

Stern turned to random sex once he was single. He explains:

"I was running around, picking up women. Then all of the sudden, it dawned on me that I really didn't need that much sex. I just wanted somebody with me ever minute. I was using women as a surrogate mother. When I tapped into that, it suddenly became very childish behavior."

With his tour dates in Detroit and Chicago selling out in mere minutes, Charlie Sheen has added five new dates to his upcoming Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Show.

The actor, who will be donating one dollar from each ticket sold to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund, will be ranting and raving in front of audiences on the following dates next month.

April 5: Playhouse Square Center, Cleveland
April 6: Palace Theatre, Columbus, Ohio
April 8: Radio City Music Hall, NYC
April 9: Oakdale Theater, Wallingford, CT
April 12: Agganis Arena, Boston

With tickets ranging from $50-$80, the only more obvious use of one's money is to wager it all on a Brad Womack/Emily Maynard split.

Want an early look at Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kris Humphries? You won't get it in this week's issue of OK!.

Despite proclamations of a KARDSHIAN EXCLUSIVE and a headline that screams KIM'S DREAM WEDDING, juxtaposed over what appears to be a wedding portrait, the following anonymous quote is the extent of this tabloid's in-depth coverage on this imaginary story:

"Kim falls fast and hard, and this time is no exception. Kris makes her laugh, gives her confidence, makes her smile... Plus, with Kris, things are different. He knew what he was getting himself into, and he says that Kim is everything he expected and more.”

Kim Getting Married?!?

We can only imagine what Kris expected. An empty personality, a giant set of breasts and the world's best marketing team?

Expect these two to get engaged about the same time that Kim's single earns a Grammy nomination.

Seriously, can anyone out there stand Star Jones? Anyone at all?

We ask this question in light of the recent stirs created by this former talk show host on the latest season of Celebrity Apprentice.

Referred to as a "back stabber" by co-star NeNe Leakes, Jones tried to hold back in an interview with Daytime Confidential, but ended up going off and saying:

Star Jones on Celebrity Apprentice

"We're not on the same level. Lets make that clear. We're on the same show... In all honesty, I would never compare myself to another African-American woman. I would never tear down another African-American woman in order to elevate myself. Cream rises to the top and water seeks its own level."

Well, okay then.

Jones has also been feuding with Lisa Rinna, who was eliminated from the show on Sunday night.

It's the new rage across young Hollywood. Just look at Vanessa Hudgens here and Zac Efron here.

Now, Demi Lovato is the latest star to get newly inked.

In the following video, the recently-rehabbed singer talks about the basis behind her wrist tattoo, pointing to her fans and the outpouring of love they've shown her over the last few months.

Referring to tattoos that read "Stay" and "Strong," Lovato says they are "something that my fans actually were drawing on their wrists while I was still in treatment... so I wanted to show you guys that I will never forget the support that you gave me."

This is a significant time in the life of Joe Jonas.

Having broken away briefly from the comfort zone of performing with his brothers, the singer has also embarked on a serious relationship with a Twilight Saga star. How are things going with Ashley Greene?

“[It] feels good," Joe says in the April issue of Details. "I think what works about it is she really puts my feelings first. She understands my busy schedule. She’ll fly out to my shows. She’s been to places in South America that I can’t even pronounce.”
