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.

Ke$ha has outdone herself this time.

No, the eccentric artist isn't wearing a crazy outfit or donning excessive face paint in the music video for "Blow." But she is hilariously interacting with former Dawson's Creek star James Van Der Beek.

“Well, well, well... if it isn’t James Van Der Douche,” Ke$ha says about halfway through. Responds the actor:“I don’t appreciate you slander-beeking my name, Ke-dollar sign-ha."

It makes very little sense, but don't worry: according to a disclaimer, “no mythological creatures were harmed in the making of this video."

They are two of the older American Idol semifinalists. But might experience pay off for Ashthon Jones and Kendra Chantelle?

The former has worked as a professional model, while the latter has been a part of the Nashville music scene for years. She's played in numerous establishments and even penned a few original songs.

Are we about to embark on a trip down SwiftStreet?

Cameras caught Taylor Swift and Glee star Chord Overstreet taking in the L.A. Kings game last night. The possibility of these two dating is even more jarring than the fact that people actually attend hockey games in Los Angeles. Who knew?!?

No word from either side yet about the meaning behind this possible date, but the two do look awfully cute together, don't they? A friend tells Us Weekly:  "Chord is into her. He will definitely pursue this."

Overstreet has recently been linked to Kelly Osbourne and Naya Rivera, while Swift has been linked... eh, just go listen to her latest album and hear for yourself.

In response to the decision by CBS to shut down production on Two and a Half Men this season, Charlie Sheen wrote/asked:

What does this say about Haim Levine after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me?

Why did the actor refer to creator Chuck Lorre by his Jewish name? Not because he's anti-Semitic, Sheen insists. He tells TMZ:

"I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona... you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?"

A couple important notes:

  1. Chuck's birth name is Charles Levine.
  2. To answer your question, Charlie: Yes. In the course of a diatribe against you as a human being, if someone addressed you in such a random manner - considering NO ONE on the planet refers to you by that moniker - then, yes, that individual would have an anti-Latino agenda.

With that matter settled, there's also this piece of news: Sheen texted Good Morning America today and said he plans to show up on the set of Two and a Half Men next week. That should be fun.

It's a date we're guessing millions of young women have had circled on their calendar for months: Justin Bieber turns 17 years old on Tuesday.

How does he plan on celebrating?

"I'm just going to relax because I start my world tour on [March 4]," he told Entertainment Tonight. "So just going to mentally prepare... No birthday bash... Hopefully, my grandparents will be out here and I'll be able to spend time them. My grandma makes the best cheesecake."

Got any birthday wishes for Justin Bieber?

As for the haircut heard around the world?

"I just woke up and said, 'I don't want this anymore,' so I just cut it," Justin said. "The fans really liked it, but they'll like me no matter what because I think it's about the music. I'm really excited to see what the fans overseas think and take it day by day."

Kathy Griffin doesn't need to worry about whether or not her man smells like the Old Spice guy. Why? Because her new man is the Old Spice guy! Maybe!

Friends tell Us Weekly that the comedian and Isaiah Mustafa "are not boyfriend/girlfriend, but they are definitely spending time together and getting to know each other."

Tournament of THG Couples Bracket

Griffin Tweeted the following photo of her and Mustafa back in September, saying at the time that the aspiring actor was "super hot."

But might this all be a PR stunt? Like Griffin's fake past relationships with Levi Johnston and Adnan Ghalib? It does not appear that way.

The pair hung out Tuesday night at the Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills. The next day, Mustafa visited Griffin on the set of Glee, cozying up to her between takes.

We'd say the hunky commercial star could do a lot better. But Kathy Griffin in a bikini? Not terrible looking.

It's still early to make any bold predictions, but this much is safe to say: Jacob Lusk must be considered one of the favorite to capture this season's American Idol crown.

The soulful singer from Compton, California possesses a vocal range that is only matched by the incredible emotion he squeezes out of every performance. Definitely someone to watch, starting with this Tuesday's all-male audition night.

Solid Scott

But Scott McCreery might have something to say about Lusk's march to the title. The 17-year old North Carolina resident is one of the only true country singers in the competition. Think he has a chance to go all the way?
