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.

Popular, early opinion so far states that a woman will win American Idol.

But we can think of two singers that hope to prove that consensus wrong: Tyler Grady and John Park.

The former stood out during his initial audition in Boston because he performed with casts on both wrists, the result of a fall from a tree. He also impressed with his retro look and rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."

Park, meanwhile, hasn't received a lot of air time just yet. He's a student at Northwestern University received unanimous approval for Hollywood after his audition in Chicago.

Look closely at the two men below. One of them might be the next American Idol...

Earlier this week, we also compared Ashley Rodriguez with Lilly Scott. Cast your vote between those two contestants now!

Adam Lambert is on record: he won't rule out sex with women.

Following a development this week, we now have an idea of what it would take to land Lambert if you're a member of the softer gender: don glitter and record a number-one single.

Very Much in Love

During a party on February 13 at a gay nightclub in New York City called Providence, the American Idol runner-up played a serious game of tonsil hockey with Ke$ha.

“She’s really pretty, we were laughing and we just started kissing. She’s a great [kisser]," Adam told the radio show BLI In The Morning yesterday.

Care to elaborate, Adam?

"She tasted like Goldschläger and maple syrup," he told JustJared.com.

Sounds like the sort of combination Ke$ha would partake in, doesn't in? She's not your average celebrity.

As for Lambert? “He tasted like blueberries and champagne," the female singer, who performed earlier in the evening, said.

Did the make out session extend beyond the club and beyond first base? No. But if Lambert were to give women a shot, wouldn't Ke$ha be perfect for him?

One os a multiple-tme Grammy winner.

The other often appears topless in magazine spreads.

One is a globally respected, conservative, innocent, 20-year old recording artist.

The other has gotten naked in Playboy many times.

On the surface, Taylor Swift and Carmen Electra have nothing in mind. Then again, on the surface, Tiger Woods didn't seem like the type of guy that would need to read a prepared statement that apologized for his countless transgressions with the opposite sex.

It turns out that Taylor and Carmen do have one thing in common: fashion taste. Case in point:

Taylor vs. Carmen

Who wears this outfit better?

Nick Bollea may always have a guilty conscious over what transpired in a car more than two years ago, but he's now out of the legal woods with the family of John Graziano.

In 2007, Graziano was riding shotgun in Hogan's Toyota Supra when a car accident caused him "to lose a portion of his brain, to be confined to a wheelchair and to be in a minimally conscious state requiring full time care," according to court documents filed by Graziano's relatives in a civil suit.

The son of Hulk Hogan served five months in prison for the crash, following a plea of no contest to charges of felony reckless driving.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, a settlement was reached in the civil case. Terms were undisclosed.

"We reached a settlement that was agreeable to all parties," Kim Kohn, the Graziano family attorney, told E! News. "We are very happy because our goal all along was to ensure that John was provided with the appropriate care for the rest of his life. And the settlement will do that."

Graziano was released from a Florida hospital in September.

Seen in the video below, Adam Lambert sung “Whataya Want From Me” with a group of kids in L.A. on Thursday, February 18. The event was part of the crooner's efforts to assist with DonorsChoose.org.

The talented, admirable musician dropped by to perform this single with the students and also handed out music composition books so they could write their own music.

If you wish to donate to classroom projects in honor of Lambert, visit DonorsChoose.org today. Then, take a look and a listen:

P.S. No, current Idol semifinalist Alex Lambert is NOT related to Adam. They share a love of music, not any DNA.

Man, this makes us feel old.

Hillary Duff, who we first started to follow in 2001 when she was a 14-year old Lizzie McGuire, is engaged. Long-time boyfriend, and Edmonton Oilers star, Mike Comrie popped the question to the actress in Maui this week.

This is actually the second accepted proposal between a singer and hockey player in the last couple months: Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher got engaged in late December.

Duff was most recently seen on the small screen during a six-episode arc on Gossip Girl.

We wish her and Comrie a happy, healthy life together!

Earlier this week, Simon Cowell said he hoped a female would come out on top of American Idol this season.

As loyal fans know, the judges often tweak comments and try to manipulate votes in the direction of contestants they're cheering for, so this is a comment worth taking seriously.

Two people that would love to prove Simon correct are Ashley Rodriguez and Lilly Scott. Both stood out after a week in Hollywood, but each for different reasons.

Rodriguez brings energy and a big voice to the stage. Let's face it, she's also gorgeous. Scott, meanwhile, is one of several singers that appears to be following the mold of Taylor Swift, singing beautifully and strumming her guitar.

Contrast the hopefuls below and let your voice be heard...

It's been a big week for Kim Kardashian.

Instead of merely reading off cue cards for her reality show, or posing on red carpets for parties that pay her thousands of dollars do nothing, the former sex tape star took on the role of fashion and fragrance designer.

First, she walked the runway during New York Fashion Week, donning a dress she and her sisters helped create.

Then, she and Sephora officially launched Kim's new fragrance at a store in the city. Hundreds of people showed up, including one adorable Saints fan:

For the record, no matter how good she looks in a bathing suit, we'd much rather see this side of Kim than the woman that Tweets photos of herself looking "HOT" in a bikini.

Simon Cowell would like to get one thing out of the way: He's not engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy.

Personal questions aside, the American Idol spoke to reporters yesterday and addressed reports of who might replace him as a judge next season.

“I think they’ll find somebody who’s got that kind of experience, whether it’s a manager, artist, or like me, an A & R executive,” he said.

What about two of the most prominent names being bantered about: Howard Stern and Perez Hilton?

“I know Howard’s name has been in there for a while, but I’m fairly certain that there hasn’t been an approach at any time for Howard to do the show... He’s played records. He’s a DJ. He obviously wants the job. Good luck to him.”

What about the world's most self-obsessed celebrity gossip blogger? “Perez would be funny. He’s got a good taste in music, he’s a personality — that could work.”

AI Crew

As for Cowell's favorites this season, he won't specify any contestant. But his words make it clear that he's in the corner of female singers such as Crystal Bowersox and Didi Benami.

“There’s definitely a better chance of a girl winning the show. I’d love to find a Taylor Swift, somebody who’s relevant rather than just a contest winner.”

Ouch. Was that a shot at recent winners David Cook and Kris Allen?

In a recently-released promo for new episodes of 90210, AnnaLynne McCord's character of Naomi drops her trenchcoat and stands naked before her boyfriend. It's hot stuff.

We wish the actress had gone with the same look at this week's Shutter Island premiere, as she donned an unusual leather outfit instead.

Can't say we're big fans of the fashion statement made below. But whatever McCord is doing, it must be working: she continues to be involved with Twilight Saga star Kellan Lutz. He must not mind the feel of leather... or of the nude body referenced above.

Smooch Blower

What do you think of AnnaLynne McCord's outfit?
