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.

For those who thought it would never be appropriate to compare Justin Bieber with Michael Jackson, we have three words for you: never say never.

The 17-year old icon has set a new box office record with his first foray on to the big screen, surpassing the King of Pop in the process. Through yesterday, Bieber's Never Say Never has earned $72.2 million domestically, becoming the most successful concert-themed film of all-time in the United States.

Jackson's This Is It brought in $72.1 million.

Bieber will never catch MJ on a worldwide basis, however.

This Is It, which chronicled Jackson's final tour preparations prior to his June 2009 passing, has garnered an unfathomable $189.1 overseas. Bieber's biopic has only grossed $10.8 million outside America.

Another point of historical comparison: Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour earned $5 million internationally in 2008 and $65 domestically.

She's been mocked endlessly on the Internet, but Rebecca Black has a major fan in... Simon Cowell?!?

Yes, the formerly harsh American Idol judge and world famous record producer says he's a big fan of this 13-year old, who has endured one hateful comment after another from anyone who has listened to the single "Friday."

"I love her [and] the fact that she's gotten so much publicity," Cowell tells People. "People are so upset about the song, but I think it's hysterical... I want to meet her. Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I want to meet. I love people like that."

Simon has other business on the mind these days, too: he's bringing The X Factor to Fox in the fall and will soon be announcing stars to join L.A. Reid on the judges' table.

It's official: Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been confirmed for a key role in The Dark Knight Rises.

The Inception star will take on the character of Alberto Falcone in the summer 2012 blockbuster, the son of mafia boss Carmine Falcone, played by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins.

A source close to the film says the villain known as "The Holiday Killer" returns to Gotham "to take over the underworld once ruled by his father before the arrival of Batman."

Anne Hathway will play Catwoman in this installment of the franchise, while Juno Temple and Marion Cotillard will also appear. The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.

UPDATE: Sources now say Gordon-Levitt is on board, but will NOT portray The Holiday Killer. We'll have more on this role as news breaks.

Victoria Jackson has sounded off again.

Last month, the former Saturday Night Live member sung about how Barack Obama is clearly a Communist. Now, in a column for World Net Daily, Jackson writes that "progressives, communists, liberals, globalists and Muslims want to destroy America" and then focuses on the most recent episode of Glee.

It featured two male characters kissing, which led to this excerpt:

Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians — again! I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of Glee — what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?

Did Jackson just label a gay kiss "sickening" and then call out Glee producers for being intolerant? Forget rain on your wedding day or 10,000 spoons when one really needs a knife.

This is ironic, don't you think?

Does Victoria Jackson have a point?

They aren't as exciting as the sneak peeks we've enjoyed, but, hey, anything to get us psyched for more Captain Jack Sparrow, right?

Penelope Cruz as Angelia, Blackbeard's daughter and the pirate Blackbird himself, played by Ian McShane.

We haven't heard the last from Brett Michaels and Miley Cyrus.

The artists recorded a duet of Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" last year, only for the release of it to be suspended because rumors of an affair between Bret and Miley's mother, Tish, flooded the Internet.

Both parties denied the story.

Now, the same week Billy Ray called off his divorce from Tish, Michaels has announced his plan to eventually release the single, even citing the rumored affair as the basis for its delay:

"The record label was supposed have to this huge humongous release of 'Every Rose.' It was going to be Miley's next-step song, but because of that, they stepped back."

Look for this rendition of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" to be available for download this summer.

They had a great run, avoiding tabloid pages more than most Hollywood couples, but it's now over Bradley Cooper and Renée Zellweger. Multiple sources have confirmed their split.

The movie stars met in 2009 and moved in together last fall. No reason has been given for the split, but the pair actually made Star Magazine's cover this week, just a few days before the break-up went public.

Said Cooper in September: "I can't say enough about her. I just love her. I [loved] coming to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her."

Speculation of a split first arose in February, though, when each attended a pre-Oscar party, but didn’t hang out as a couple at all.

Speaking on the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise, Rupert Grint said this week: "The reason they're on this journey is much bigger than any one of them. It has to come to a head at some point."

And come to a head it does on July 15, when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premieres.

In the following sneak peek, we see Hogwarts bursting into flames, along with Harry and Voldemort going wand-to-wand. We also hear these words from Grint's Ron: "This is it, really. This is the end of the line."

How will it all end? We'll find out this summer. Check out a couple clips from the film below:

Who needs terrible sitcom writing? Charlie Sheen is set to prove that being a crazed Vatican assassin/warlock is just as lucrative as reciting obvious, trite jokes on a weekly basis.

TMZ has learned that the actor will make $7 million off 21 tour dates over the next few weeks, as he'll receive 85% of the profits from all show, good for a total of $250,000 - $275,000 per day.

Sheen will also rake in funds for merchandising and after-parties.
