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.

She seemingly came out of nowhere, but Pia Toscano is here to stay.

The American Idol finalist, who received little air time prior to last week's sterling rendition of "I'll Stand By You," was thrust to the forefront of the competition after earning the first standing ovation of the season from the judges for her semifinal performance.

"I felt like I never really showed all that I could do on the show, and I'm so happy that I did save it for when it counted," Pia told MTV at last week's top 13 party. "I've grown so much as a person and as a vocalist throughout this competition, and I'm so happy that that was my moment to shine."

So, what can viewers expect to hear next from the artist, who will perform live tomorrow night? She says:

"I definitely want to have those big ballads. Since I was a little girl, I've always taken to those huge voices: Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey. So I definitely want to bring that back. But I also want to have those fun dance hits as well."

With each day bringing a piece of Charlie Sheen news that's crazier than the last, Warners Brothers has finally made it official: the actor has been fired from Two and a Half Men.

Just moments ago, the company issued the following statement: "After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen's services on 'Two and a Half Men,' effective immediately."

Sheen, Chuck

Over the last several weeks, Sheen has taken shots at creator Chuck Lorre, demanded a raise to $3 million per episode, paraded live-in porn stars around to various interviews, referred to fans as "trolls" and "losers" and started his own talk show on the Web that can only be described as... disturbing.

He continues to win, however. So at least he has that going for him.

Will Two and a Half Men go on without its star? No decision has been made. But expect the next rambling batch of Charlie Sheen quotes to be unleashed in 3... 2... 1...

Update: Yup. There they are. Sheen has responded by saying: This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.

UPDATE: TMZ has obtained the 11-page letter that outlines the basis for this decision. In it, Warner Bros. cites the Plaza Hotel incident, refers to Sheen's "felony offense" and "moral turpitude" and writes: "Your client has been engaged in dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill."

While Charlie Sheen continues to back himself into a crazy Korner, and while Brooke Mueller is off shooting a reality show with Paris Hilton (seriously), it's easy to forget that there are two-year old boys at stake here.

The former couple will meet in court tomorrow to hammer out a custody arrangement regarding Bob and Max. Until then, though, Sheen's side is accusing Mueller of profiting off her twins:

"[Charlie] is getting more and more frustrated every day, seeing pictures of them with their mother as she parades them all over LA like some sort of sick photo opportunity."

It's hard to argue with that, as the following video of Mueller was taken in the middle of the day, as she walked around The Grove, smiling for the paparazzi:

Adds this insider to Popeater:

"This wouldn't be the first time Brooke has sought to profit from media exposure. Brooke negotiated a million-dollar deal to sell her wedding pictures to Charlie back in 2008. She also tried to sell images of her newborn twins back in 2009. She loves being in the spotlight as much as Charlie."

Kim Kardashian has never been a drinker. She's told us that numerous times in interviews.

But, come on, did you really think that would stop her from shilling for Midori?!?

The reality star and her impressive cleavage anchor a new ad campaign for that liquor brand, as Kim expresses her affection for a drink known as the "Super Sour" in the following video.

  • For Midori
  • Kardashian in Green
  • Shilling for Midori

We'd make fun of Kim, but as long as she isn't singing...

It was date night for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in Vancouver this weekend. Sort of.

Witnesses confirm to People that Rob, Kristen, Kellan Lutz and others dined at Spanish tapas bar La Bodega on Saturday night.

Sitting at a table tucked into the corner of the establishment, the group shared a number of offerings and left around midnight. They walked the three blocks from the restaurant to their hotel.

As outlined in this edition of The Pulse, the Breaking Dawn cast settled into Vancouver last month and will be filming there over the next few weeks.

Most college students go to Panama City or Cancun for spring break.

Emma Watson goes back to work on one of the most successful movie franchises in Hollywood history.

This time, though, the Harry Potter star will take an extended hiatus from Brown University, as she posted a message on her website today that alerts readers to her upcoming plans:

Watson, Emma

As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I've had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.

I've decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working towards my degree... it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought : )

Hope you are all well! Thank you for all your continuing support.

Part two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will hit theaters in July.

Mike DeStefano, a finalist in 2010 on Last Comic Standing, has passed away. The 44-year old suffered a heart attack last night, just days before he was scheduled to anchor the one-man show A Cherry Tree in The Bronx in NYC.

The Bronx native finished fourth on the stand-up-based reality show last year. DeStefano, who was HIV positive, had overcome such obstacles in his life as drug addiction and the death of his wife.

A recovering heroin user, DeStefano was working as drug counselor in Florida when he offered to entertain the audience at a convention over a decade ago. He earned a positive response and his career took off from there.

Our thoughts go out to his family.

Perhaps this news will make Camille Grammer feel better...

Scarcely a week into the marriage between Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh, insiders tell Popeater this couple is already fighting over a pressing topic: where they should reside.

"Kelsey wants to move back to L.A. to be near his daughters and start working on a new TV project with Starz," a source tells Rob Shuter. "But Kayte would rather stay in New York where she has close friends and is far, far away from Camille."

The 55-year old actor made the 29-year old Brit his fourth wife on February 25. How will they resolve this dispute? Easy, friends say: Kayte will cave to her husband.

"Kelsey has an enormous ego and definitely likes being the boss," says the source. "Everything goes great when your answer is 'yes' to him."

That's something Camille reportedly didn't say for the final two years of her marriage to the actor.

9021-NO? Or 9021-YES?

Actress Jessica Stroup has dyed her dark hair a bright shade of red, posing with the new style on the red carpet in Last Vegas last month.

The actress, who chopped her hair down to its current length last spring, is not one who's afraid to change up her look. Did she hit a home run in this case? Or strike out badly? You tell us...

On one (crazy) hand, Charlie Sheen has referred to his first edition of Sheen's Korner as "a shameful trainwreck filled with blind, cuddly puppies."

On the other (totally insane) hand, the actor has released a second version of his UStream show and says it's "already engraved into the pantheon of the movement." What movement, you ask? Seriously, don't ask.

In the 13-minute video below, Sheen is by himself, smoking and seemingly talking to an associate about the second episode of the Korner. It appears as if the man on the other line is unaware that this actually is the second episode, while Sheen assures him: There's one side to me and it's gnarly.

Don't question any of it. Just watch:
