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.

You don't often see an X Factor contestant compared to both chicken soup and the world's most famous vampire. But those were both descriptions bestowed on Josh Krajcik last night, following a strong rendition of "With A Little Help From My Friends."

What engendered such responses, the former from Paula and the latter from Simon? Josh's growls. His faces. His overall expressive demeanor.

Are we looking at the next Beyonce Knowles?

Yes, it's early on The X Factor. And, yes, Simon Cowell is known for hyperbole. But it was hard to really argue with that judge last night after he compared 13-year old Rachel Crow to one of this generation's most iconic artists. Too much praise far too soon?

Drew Ryniewicz grew a bit serious on The X Factor last night.

On an episode where the remaining 11 contestants selected songs from various movies, this 14-year old covered a Coldplay classic, "Fix You." She was praised by Paula Abdul for the "honest" performance, while Nicole Scherzinger used the rendition to take a swipe at Simon Cowell.

Justin Bieber can take a deep breath. His ongoing baby scandal clearly is not impacting his career, at least not in any negative sense.

The numbers are in and Bieber's "Under the Mistletoe" has become the first holiday CD by a male artist to ever debut at number-one on the Billboard 200. Not shabby, huh? It's only the eighth holiday album ever to hold this spot, with Susan Boyle the last artist to accomplish the feat in 2010.

Taylor Lautner has faced down evil vampires and mean werewolves. He's also fought his way through a throng of screaming young women.

But on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, the actor opened up about the most frightening creature of all: The Twi-Mom.
