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.

This is what I joined forces with American Idol to hear. That was as good as it gets.

So gushed Steven Tyler soon after Keonna Evans, Jalen Harris, Sarina-Joi Crowe, Felix Ramsey and Deandre Brackensick completed their rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love" on last night's American Idol group round.

All were impressive, but 16-year old Brackensick stood out the most. Just listen to this student's falsetto in the following video and sound off: think he has a chance to go far on season 10?

Paris Hilton turns 30 years old today and, please folks, wish her a happy birthday.

This washed-up A-lister really needs some support, having sat around over the last couple years and watched Kim Kardashian usurp her title as Least Important Famous Member of Society. It's been rough.

The heiress was forced to throw herself a flapped-themed party in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, as she was joined by boyfriend Cy Waits and a petting zoo at the event. All was taped for her upcoming Oxygen reality show, of course. It's time for a comeback!

Get ready, American Idol fans. Here comes Jacob Lusk!

The 23-year old from Los Angeles was scarcely featured during that city's original round of season 10 auditions. But he stood out from all other contenders on last night's group night, joining forces with Naima Adedapo - another rumored member of the top 40 - for an a cappella version of the Temptations' "Get Ready."

Watch now and prepare to Lusk after this contestant:

We have a few updates on journalist Lara Logan and, given her situation, all are as positive as one could hope for.

The 39-year old is at home and resting comfortably, surrounded by her husband and two children. In other news:

  • An insider familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that the attack lasted 20 to 30 minutes and "was not a rape."
  • It took place a week after Logan and her crew were already arrested once in Egypt. She returned to interview Wael Ghonim, the Google executive who played a role in organizing the uprising that led to Hosni Mubarak's resignation.
  • Said Logan to Esquire of that ordeal: "We were arrested, detained, and interrogated. Blindfolded, handcuffed, taken at gunpoint, our driver beaten. It's the regime that arrested us. They arrested [our producer] just outside of his hotel, and they took him off the road at gunpoint, threw him against the wall, handcuffed him, blindfolded him. Took him into custody like that."
  • Friends say Logan plans to be back to work within a few weeks and is in good spirits.
  • Possessing an "incredibly tough constitution, she is going to be okay," a source added.

THG continues to wish Logan a full recovery and encourages readers to do the same.

Halle Berry 1, Gabriel Aubry 0.

So reads the custody scoreboard between this former couple, after a judge ruled in the actress' favor today and said she could take daughter Nahla to New York for a movie shoot.

Sources confirm to TMZ that these two started to fight over their child when Aubry attempted to block Berry from taking the two-year with her across the country to film New Year's Eve.

Halle and Nahla

With the Oscar winner in attendance, a Los Angeles judge gave her the green light bring Nahla along for the duration of her time on set.

"We are pleased the judge took the time to deal with this very imminent and important issue," Berry's attorney, Neal Hersh, said. "The judge read a great deal of paperwork and gave us time to argue."

Man. All this over the sequel to Valentine's Day?!? Perhaps if Berry and Aubry watched that atrocious romantic comedy, the entire hullabaloo could have been avoided.

Somewhere between funny talk show interviews and award ceremonies, Justin Bieber found time this month to sit down with Rolling Stone.

Aside from quickly closing his computer as soon as the reporter commented on a wallpaper photo of himself and Selena Gomez in front of a sunset (AWWW!), Justin touched on a number of topics. Many of them controversial. Check out his views on sex, abortion and Canada below.

Justin Bieber for Rolling Stone

On intercourse: "I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them. I think you should just wait for the person you're... in love with."

On abortion: "I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby?"

What if it's the result of rape? "Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."

On health care: "Canada's the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here [America], your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard's baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby's premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home."

UPDATE: Rolling Stone admits to leaving out a key sentence. Justin actually answered one of the questions above with:

"Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don't know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."

Irina Shayk is the cover model for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Brooklyn Decker was the cover model for last year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Will Shayk go on to marry a tennis star and appear alongside Adam Sandler in the country's number-one movie? We have no idea. Would more men prefer to sleep with her instead of Decker? That's what we wanna know...

Irina Shayk or Brooklyn Decker? Who would you rather...

Jessica Alba has delivered exciting news via her Facebook page. We'll let the actress pass it along herself:

I thought I'd drop by to let you all in on some exciting news – Honor is going to be a Big Sister! Cash and I are thrilled and wanted to share the news directly with you so you didn't hear about it somewhere else.

I appreciated all of the love and support you all gave me during my first pregnancy and will definitely appreciate it again this time around. Have a great day!

Holding Honor

There's not much we can ad to that, except: congratulations!

Alba gave birth to daughter Honor Marie in June 2008. She and Cash Warren got married a month prior to that blessed event.

Lisa Edelstein is taking on Republicans in a new ad that is sure to stir up a lot of controversy.

In the following spot, sponsored by Move On dot Org, the House cast member dresses like a 1950s-era woman and walks toward a door.

As she gets closer to it, her narration says: "The Republican Party launched an all-out assault on women's health, pushing bills to limit access to vital services... why is the GOP trying to send women back... to the back alley?"

She then opens the door to reveal a closet full of hangers. Watch now and sound off:

Anderson Cooper has Tweeted out a response to the unsettling news about Lara Logan and her attack at the hands of Egyptian protesters.

The CNN anchor, who left the country soon after he and his crew were also assaulted while covering that nation's recent uprising, simply wrote: "Sickened and saddened by the attack on Lara Logan. She is in all of our thoughts and prayers.”

That Silver Fox

Logan is a native of South Africa and has worked as the CBS Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for years.

In the wake of this February 11 incident, she was flown home and hospitalized. She is now resting at home in the D.C. area with her husband and two kids.
