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.

Kim Kardashian made it clear a couple weeks ago: she isn't only about red carpet photos and fashion.

The reality star took major exception to her body being placed on the cover of Turkey's Cosmopolitan, considering she's of Armenian descent and that nation was responsible for acts of genocide against her people in the early 1900s.

Now, with Genocide Remembrance Day schedule for Sunday, Kim has taken to her blog and posted the following message:

"My family and I are incredibly proud of our heritage. My dad taught me a lot about Armenian culture, and I have a strong connection with my roots. Every year, I honor the memory of the martyrs who were killed during the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Even though so many countries around the world recognize the Genocide, the government of Turkey still denies it."

Does Robert Pattinson have another hit on his hands with Water for Elephants?

Perhaps at the box office, but not according to a majority of movie critics around the country. Take a look at various excerpts from a sampling of publications that aren't exactly in love with the Twilight star's new film, which opens on April 22...

With Fake Bella

Even nonreaders of the book can figure out what happens next. It's all in the telling. Sara Gruen provided grit and pungent detail. The movie settles for gloss. - Rolling Stone

The script by Richard LaGravenese, who is well-versed in adapting popular fiction such as Bridges of Madison County, lacks the sparkle of his best work. - USA Today

The love triangle takes a familiar shape and the dialogue tends toward the banal. Rarely has running away to join the circus looked so dull. - Boxoffice Magazine

The problem isn't just miscasting or the cheesiness of the material. It's Pattinson's increasingly predictable, dour persona. - Salon dot com

Short-circuits the novel's quirky charms and period atmosphere by its squeamish attitude toward gritty circus life and smothers the drama under James Newton Howard's insufferable wall-to-wall musical soup. - The New York Times

Amy Smart won't need to do any home repairs for the rest of her life.

That's because the actress got engaged this week to HGTV star Carter Oosterhouse. Smart made the announcement, which she deemed "new" and "exciting," at the Earth Lovers in Celebration of Earth Day event in New York on Thursday.

Carter Oosterhouse and Amy Smart

The couple met in November of last year and a pal says they instantly had something in common: affection for the environment.

"He's an eco-carpenter; Amy drives a hybrid and is the greenest girl I know," says the friend. "They are perfect for each other."

Demi Lovato is continuing to open up about her recent stint in rehab and the basis for her stay there.

First, the singer/actress admitted she's battled an eating disorder for years, later adding that she's cut herself since the age of 11 and is leaving Sonny with a Chance to battle these demons.

Now, the 18-year is opening up again to the public, making an admission to People: "I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar," she tells the magazine. "There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I'd be up until 5:30 in the morning."

Last week, Catherine Zeta-Jones sought professional help for the same disease, as Demi Tweeted her support of that star. She says she's taking positive steps in her life to turn things around.

"I feel like I am in control now where my whole life I wasn't in control... What's important for me now is to help others."

In his continuing attempt to mend his family, Billy Ray Cyrus has made clear his one wish for daughter Miley: unadulterated happiness.

"My wish for her is to be happy. To love what she's doing," the famous father tells Parade. "We've always had a slogan in our family: 'If you ain't happy, it ain't working.' You need to love what you're doing. As long as she's happy and loving making music - and I know she loves acting - that's all that matters."

Miley kicks off a tour of Australia later this month and Billy Ray says it's been incredible to watch her journey as an artist.

"I think music is an evolution of what an artist is feeling and going through in their lives. We've always been the fans of singers and songwriters who live what they're singing and sing what they're living."

In her upcoming memoir, "A Helluva High Note," former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi writes about her successful career in the music business.

But it's DioGuardi's personal past that is getting attention right now, as excerpts of the book have been released and they focus on a pair of traumatic experiences: molestation and date rape.

Kara and Katrina on Stage

Of the former, Kara details the repeated actions taken by a family friend's son when she was 11 years old. He was in his late teens and: "On one particular day, he took me into the back shed of his house and put his hands all over my breasts and vagina. I remember freezing and not knowing what to do."
