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.

On June 8, Christina Aguilera will release her new album, "Bionic."

But the singer announced her return to the music business loudly, proudly and provocatively this week: she posted the video for "Not Myself Tonight" online.

In the video below, and in the still shot from it seen here, the singer embraces her inner dominatrix. She recently said: “I’m more confident and comfortable in my own skin. I think I’m even a more sexual Christina."

That's incredible news for warm-blooded males around the world, but it's stirring up some criticisms of Christina on the Web.

After all, she's a mother now. What will she tell her son Max when he sees her acting in such a manner?

“I never claimed to be a cookie-cutter soccer mom. That’s all good for some people. Not for me," she told Access Hollywood. “[Max will] grow up in a household where he knows mommy expresses herself artistically and some of that will have to reflect itself sexually, too, at times.

“He’s going to learn to respect the fact that women are allowed to express themselves and not feel shameful about their bodies or their sexuality.”

Sounds like a fair, mature message to us. WATCH THE "NOT MYSELF TONIGHT" VIDEO BELOW AND THEN SOUND OFF ON IT.

It's been a good couple weeks for Conan O'Brien:

He's landed on his funny feet at TBS, and he's been named the second most influential artist on the planet.

Obama and Leno

This Sunday on 60 Minutes, meanwhile, the comedian will speak in depth for the first time on the decision by NBC to toss him aside as host of The Tonight Show and replace him with Jay Leno, who was all too happy to take back the gig.

Would Conan have done the same thing in Jay's place?

"He went and took that show back, and I think in a similar situation, if roles had been reversed, I know - I know me, I wouldn't have done that," O’Brien says. "If I had surrendered The Tonight Show and handed it over to somebody publicly and wished them well - and then... six months later. But that's me. Everyone's got their own way of doing things."

A classy individual, as evidenced by this statement he released in the middle of the late-night mess, Conan continued to emphasize that he could only speak for himself, refusing to completely lay into Leno.

As for why he left NBC, O'Brien remembers thinking "this relationship is going be toxic and maybe we just need to go our separate ways.

"That's really how it felt to me... and I started to feel that I'm not sure these people even really want me here ... I can't do it [anymore]."

While we appreciate how mature and professional Conan has been throughout this ordeal, we're also glad David Letterman is around - to basically be the exact opposite.

We love Matthew Morrison on Glee.

The Tony Award-winning actor is incredibly talented and entertaining in the role of Will Schuester. We even adore his hair, no matter how many cracks Sue Sylvester makes about it.

Now, we have yet another reason to give Morrison props, as he's put Justin Bieber in his place a bit.

"I don't get this Bieber thing," Morrison told E! News at this week's Academy of Television Arts & Sciences panel discussion. "I really don't get it. I hear he was in Australia and they kicked him out because he started a riot."

That's almost true, but it got worse in New Zealand: Justin's fans trampled his mom!

A Bit Cocky

Morrison added:"I haven't even heard his music. I couldn't tell you one name of his songs - and I'm not lying about that!"

Justin actually seems like a perfectly nice guy, but his mammoth success has gotten to his head. The crooner called out Disney, Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers recently.

Asked if he'd ever want the young singer on Glee, star Cory Monteith laughed and replied: "What's wrong with a little Bieb? Everyone needs to be a little infected by the Biebonic plague."

Ewww! Let's hope Bieber wears a condom when meeting up in private with his legions of fans and this never actually happens.

The She Wolf is on the prowl, and she's set her sights on Arizona.

In response to that state's incomprehensible new immigration law - which allows the police to ask for the identification of anyone suspected of being an illegal alien - Shakira is going on the attack.

She's headed to to Arizona today to get involved in the issue, telling Ryan Seacrest on the radio this morning:

"As a Latina, I'm very concerned how this law can impact working Hispanic families. I think that being detained in the street just because of the color of your skin is just wrong, and it's a violation of human and civil rights."

From the American Idol stage to the rights-violating streets of Arizona, Shakira is everywhere this week!

The Colombian-born singer, who is as charitable as celebrities get, will hold a press conference with Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon this week.

Like her truth-telling hips, we hope Shakira gives it to the lawmakers straight. After all, Arizona has actually made it legal for cops to make like Nazis and order: Show me your papers!

"They're really willing to enforce the law even though they know it's going crush the dreams of so many immigrants who would like to have a shot at the American dream like so many minorities have in the past in this country," Shakira said, continuing:

"We all know that America has been forged by the dreams of those people and by their passion and by their contribution to the economy by working really hard, and that's what Latinos do in this country, is work tirelessly.

"I wasn't born in this country, and I know what a great country this is. It depends greatly on creating union, not division, and I think this law will create chaos and create division instead of progress and union, and I don't think it's fair."

We'd love to see anyone argue with that.

The United States might owe billions of dollars in debt to China, but the celebrity gossip world owes even more to Chyna.

The former professional wrestler, whose real name is Joanie Laurer, made news in the past for multiple sex tapes and steroid allegations. She's been a boon to tabloids around the country.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Now, Laurer is making headlines again... for yet another scandalous incident: Gabriela Targos, a (former?) friend of Laurer's, claims that Joanie beat her up Saturday night at the Sherman Oaks motel.

According to Targos, she simply invited Laurer over for the evening - only to watch in horror as the troubled Z-lister snapped, allegedly punching Targos in the face, dragging her by the hair and beating her with a wire hanger.

Targos escaped the room and immediately reported the incident to police. They are looking into it.

They might also wanna look into the photo above. That ain't right.

Despite our differences over years with Miley Cyrus, we're happy to give the singer credit when credit is due.

Miley took the stage yesterday as a big part of Make-A-Wish Foundation’s "World Wish Day" at The Grove in Los Angeles, joining Mark Ballas and Jordan Pruitt and putting on a performance for those in attendance.

Singing on Stage

In other Miley music news: she'll release a new album on June 22 and premiere the video for "Can't Be Tamed" on May 4. Word is, it will be quite raunchy and buzz-worthy.

Below, we've posted a slew of Cyrus photos from this event, followed by her performance of "The Climb" at the concert.

We were shocked to see Siobhan Magnus go home last night.

But that actually wasn't the strangest development on the American Idol results show.

During their weekly Ford commercial, the remaining six finalists made like Robert Pattinson, Kellan Lutz and company, baring fangs and pretending to be vampires... while Michael Lynche fought them off with a garlic pizza.

It was a strange sight all around, though Casey James and Crystal Bowersox actually pull off the look well, don't they? Watch the commercial below now, before Fox yanks it off YouTube:

What do you think of the commercial? Very cool, or very WTF?!?

We have an update on the tragic situation surrounding Bruce Beresford-Redman and his late wife.

Bruce is the former Survivor producer suspected of murdering wife Monica in Cancun earlier this month. While authorities are preventing him from leaving Mexico as they ponder charges and collect evidence, Monica's family has finally brought her body to Los Angeles.

Sisters Jeanne and Carla Burgos flew with the corpse, which was taken to the Gates, Kingsley & Gates Smith Salsbury funeral home in Culver City.

"It's very important to have my sister back where she belongs and have the family say goodbye and have a place to go so they can send their love," Jeanne said.

The body will now undergo further testing, as funeral service arrangements are being planned. It's a sad situation all around.

Time Magazine has come out with its annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

It's divided into four categories (Leaders, Heroes, Thinkers and Artists), although we have no idea how Sarah Palin ended up in the number-nine slot as a "Leader." What does she lead, exactly? Whatever organization pays her the most money to speak at its event?

But anyway.

Lady GaGa is considered the most influential artist on the planet, with Conan O'Brien ranking second. Also in the top 10: Oprah, Taylor Swift and Robert Pattinson.

So Very Influential
Prince Pic

The magazine spoke to a number of people closely associated to these celebrities and received the following takes on them:

Cyndi Lauper on Lady GaGa: Lady Gaga's art captures the period we're in right now. She isn't a pop act, she is a performance artist. She herself is the art. She is the sculpture.

George Lopez on Conan O'Brien: Conan's tenacity and wit have been an inspiration to me on my own late-night show. I'm happy and proud that we'll be playing on the same team when he comes to basic cable.

Chris Weitz on Robert Pattinson: Rob is a reserved, bookish sort of specimen, a guy who'd rather spend the night at the corner table in the pub with friends — a bit of a weirdo, frankly, in the best sense.

For the complete list of influential artists, see below.
