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.

During a break from filming Breaking Dawn in Canada this week, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tried to sneak away for a date.

But they ran into a contingent of fans along the way.

Robsten was spotted watching Red Riding Hood in a British Columbia theater by a fellow movie goer, who Tweeted: "They were alone. He was nice. She was just awkward. Didn't really wanna take photos." 

Another fan echoed that sentiment, writing that "[Stewart's] personality and body language is much like Bella," but managing to gather her pals around the couple for a photo, as seen above.

See Kristen's eyes sneaking out from behind her man? Come on out and smile, K. Stew. It's okay. The camera won't bite.

Tasked with covering a song from the year of her birth, Thia Megia went all Disney on American Idol viewers last night.

The season 10 hopeful delivered a lovely version of Vanessa Williams' "Colors of the Wind" from the 1995 film Pocahontas. Wow. Yes, Thia Megia was born in 1995. It's a safe choice, one that shows off Megia's steady, strong tone and style.

Randy thought the selection was a bit too safe, while Jennifer Lopez questions the quality of her vibrato. Watch the performance for yourself and sound off now: What do you think of Thia?

Lauren Alaina was among the American Idol finalists who performed with the flu last night.

But the resulting, smokey sound may have actually helped this 16-year old with her rendition of Melissa Etheridge's "I'm the Only One."

Thanks to a confident stage presence and a well-trained voice, Alaina earned a wild ovation from the crowd, along with the label of a "shining star" from Steven Tyler. Said Jennifer Lopez, simply and accurately:

"That's staying true to the melody and framework of the song but still giving it your own flavor. Very good job."

Casey Abrams made American Idol history last night.

The bearded, talented finalist became the first contestant to ever cover a Nirvana single, putting his unique spin on "Smells Like Teen Spirit." It wasn't the greatest performance of the evening - that honor likely fell to Stefano Langone - but you have to give Casey props to taking such a risk.

The judges and the crowd certainly did. What did you make of this heavy metal rendition?

I'm blushing.

So responded Selena Gomez on The Late Show last night, as David Letterman peppered her with questions about Justin Bieber.

After showing the singer a photo of herself and the Biebs at a Vanity Fair Oscars party in February, he asked Selena how long she's known Justin (two years), how they met (his manager called her mom/manager) and whether or not the duo are dating.

Selena's unclear reply? "He's been in my life for so long, and it's just nice to have someone that understands what you're going through."

Gomez and Bieber are absolutely entitled to their privacy, but consider the lesson of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart: it might be best to just admit to a relationship and end the speculation once and for all.

Otherwise, the young stars will continue to be asked about their status and will be forced to come up with awkward answers that pretty much confirm it anyway.

Following a cover of a Paul McCartney classic, James Durbin returned to his rock roots last night.

The American Idol finalist made the girls in attendance scream with a version of Bon Jovi's "I'll Be There for You," roaming the stage while singing, shaking hands with audience members, making like a true star.

J. Lo says she loves it and tells James he's "great," while Randy warns of pitch problems but acknowledges that Durbin makes every song his own. Check it out and judge for yourself now:

So much for what you read in magazines.

The same week Details released excerpts from its interview with Joe Jonas in this month's issue, one in which the singer gushed that Ashley Greene "puts my feelings first," we've learned that the singer and the Twilight Saga star have split.

Sources tell The New York Post the break-up actually took place weeks ago, describing it as "mutual and amicable."

  • Quite Cute Together
  • A Hug for Joe

From coffee to hugs to a kiss goodbye for Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene.

As is often the case with celebrity couples, friends say Joe and Ashley's schedules made a relationship difficult.

Jonas has been in a NYC studio recording a new album, while Greene will spend the next couple months in Vancouver filming Breaking Dawn.

If you don't know Stefano Langone by now... watch the following performance of a 1989 hit single from last night's American Idol performance show.

You'll see someone Jennifer Lopez has dubbed a legitimate contender, someone who can take the "whole competition." Does the wild card entry belong in the same conversation as early favorites Casey Abrams and James Durbin now?

Is this rendition of a Simply Red classic enough to catapult him to the top of your office pool? Watch and decide...

Tasked with singing a song that was released the year of her birth, Pia Toscano chose Whitney Houston's "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" last night.

Prior to taking the stage and wowing the judges yet again ("You are why this show is called American Idol," Steven said), we learned via montage that Pia has been covering classics since she was young.

A home video of her belting out "I Will Always Love You" at the age of three or four makes it clear: this young woman was born to sing a ballad on this stage. With a faster tempo than past singles, though, Toscano proves here that she has incredible range. Watch in awe:

In the following video. Lusk and Nate are among multiple people hanging out at the latter's studio.

Upon learning of Nate's death, Jacob Tweeted: Can't be true... Im gonna miss him telling me to CALM DOWN!!!! or saying HERE HE GO.... GREAT MAN.
