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.

In early 2009, Adam Lambert won over viewers on American Idol.

But that wasn't the singer's biggest victory to date.

In a new interview with OK! Weekly, Lambert opens up about his life-changing victory over obesity.

“I lost probably about forty pounds about ten years ago,” he said. “When I was in high school, I had bad eating habits. I ate a bunch of crap – a bunch of fast food and stuff. I learned more about what’s healthy and what’s not healthy. I used a little bit of self-control.”

Svelte Singer

After shedding the excess weight, how did Lambert feel?

“Oh, a hundred times better. Physically I felt better, but I also had better self-esteem and body image.”

Lambert added that he lacks the self-discipline to incorporate workouts into his daily routine, but we're not too worried about him. You'd be surprised how many calories can be burned by gyrating around on stage.

We all know how much Nick Jonas' ex-girlfriend likes to make like a stripper.

Conversely, the talented, curly-haired male singer prefers to make like a musical icon.

During a concert Sunday night concert at the House of Blues in Dallas, Nick broke into a version of Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel."

Amidst rumors of a Jonas Brothers break-up, and as Nick goes off on tour with his new band, listen to the rendition below and let us know: Does Nick have what it takes to become a successful solo artist?

As we head into a new decade, who are the young celebrities on whom we should keep an eye?

While this comes as no surprise to THG staff members and readers, Vanity Fair has cited a pair of "Women to Watch Out For." They are... drumroll in full force... Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez!

Each rising star is interviewed in the magazine. What do they think of fame, fortune and celebrity crushes? A few excerpts from each young beauty are below:

Hudgens, on growing up: “I started off as a super-shy girl, extremely hesitant. Now I’m really growing into my own person. I can actually take care of myself, which my mom thought would never happen.”

Hudgens, on the paparazzi: “It was like, ‘Oh, my God! No way! So cool.’ The second day it happens, it’s like, Never mind. Maybe it’s not as cool as I thought it’s going to be.”

Gomez, on her well-known crush: "I am obsessed with Shia LaBeouf. He’s gorgeous and he’s a phenomenal actor. I haven’t met him — I think I’d have a heart attack if I did. I’ll wait till I’m older so that I can work with him. Maybe I’ll have calmed down by then."

The February Vanity Fair issue hits comes out on Thursday, January 21.

Those close to Casey Johnson are in mourning over the heiress' unexpected death.

As you might expect, in this technological age, they're turning to Twitter to express sympathy and heartache over the passing of their friend. To wit:

Paris Hilton: "In bed crying, looking at baby pictures of Casey, Nicky and I. I feel so upset. I feel like I've lost a sister. My heart is broken. Miss her."

Lindsay Lohan: "R.I.P. To a friend to and of many—Casey Johnson—my regards to her family, friends and her beautiful daughter Ava* you are in our hearts CJ."

Samantha Ronson: "R.I.P. Casey Johnson. Am so sick of those 3 letters."

Lip Peck

And, of course, fiancee Tila Tequila has the most to say:

"I'm still in shock! Once again thank U for the outpour of love and support. I just wish to have some privacy at this heartbreaking time... I can't stop these haunting visions of her and I. We made such a lovely couple, only beginning to spend the rest of our lives together..."

Sources confirm that Johnson twice fell into a diabetic coma over the years; and insulin syringes were found in her home after she died. No cause of death has been determined at this time.

We admire Jennifer Lopez for being proud of her curvy body. We wish all female celebrities would set such a healthy example for young women.

That said, the singer still looked terrible in her New Year's Eve bodysuit. It was simply a ridiculous outfit for anyone to wear.

However, Scott Barnes begs to differ. The star's make-up artist spoke to People about his client's fashion choice and said:

“She was having such a good time and it really showed. She has confidence about her body. She’s not hiding behind any insecurities... She is 40 and she’s had two kids. Her body looks better than ever. It was so hot!”

Terrible Outfit

Barnes compared the outfit above to Lopez's iconic Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards:

“After a decade in the public eye, most women wouldn’t have the guts to wear something like that, but she is so confident. She’s a woman and she celebrates it. Everyone else is trying to be a size zero but not her.”

Again, we agree with that attitude. Just not with the catsuit. Yech! Do you think the costume is sexy or sucky?

A man that has never met Brooke Mueller, and who hasn't spoken to Charlie Sheen in two months has gone on record reagarding the alleged domestic dispute between this couple.

Don't you love when random family members exploit their relatives in exchange for a few moments in the spotlight?

Such is clearly the case with Joe Estevez, Charlie's uncle, who told E! News: "It's a sad situation on everybody's part. Everybody wishes it didn't happen. Hopefully everyone can move on positively."

It would have been fine if the guy stopped there... but he kept going. Without having ever met Mueller, Estevez added:

"There's just as much chance of her being a drama queen as of what she's saying being true...  Let's give the couple the benefit of the doubt. I think it's much ado about nothing."

A police office on the scene, in a sworn affidavit, disagrees.

Before the Drama

Estevez (Martin Sheen's brother) went on to point out how well his nephew is taking the charges and allegations.

"He's not crying to anyone; he's sucking it up. I understand he's back at work today. First day back...doing his job, not complaining, not crying to the press. He's just being a man about it."

So, to sum up: Brooke Mueller may be a drama queen, and Sheen is an admirable "man" because he's following advice from his lawyers, remaining silent and not breaking his Two and a Half Men contract.

Makes perfect sense to us... NOT!

During its run, The Brady Bunch dealt with many family issues.

But we can't recall an episode that focused on what to do if you accuse your ex-girlfriend of wielding a knife against you and she responds by saying you're a bitter liar that's angry about a high credit card bill.

Such is the situation Barry Williams, best known for portraying Greg Brady, finds himself in. The former child star obtained a restraining order against Elizabeth Kennedy - his live-in, three-year girlfriend - last month amidst allegations that she threatened to kill herself and Williams.

Now, Kennedy is fighting back.

Documents filed with Los Angeles Superior Court state that Williams' accusations are "nothing other than an attempt to embarrass and defame Ms. Kennedy, being brought in retaliation for her incurring 'excessive' charges on his credit card while they were living together."

Interest rates can be a bitch, Elizabeth. Give the guy a break!

Elizabeth Kennedy and Barry Williams

Kennedy also asserts the restraining order was "his attempt to obtain some type of advantage in the anticipated litigation," as reports indicate she was set to sue the actor for palimony.

What about charges that Kennedy threatened Williams with a knife?

Passive aggressiveness, Kim Kardashian is thy name.

In a recent blog entry, the reality star appears to be giving props to another talentless individual within the genre - but it's easy to see the cattiness behind a post titled "Snooki Gets Her Kim On."

Snooki, of course, refers to Nicole Polizzi from MTV's latest bane on society series Jersey Shore. On her website, Kim points out that "Life & Style gave Snooki a Kim Kardashian makeover... they used the Antik Batik dress I wore to [a] party as inspiration."

Kim vs. Snooki

Kardashian adds that Snooki is her favorite Jersey Shore character and "this deserves a fist pump!!!!!!!"

But who is Kim kidding? We all can see through her supposedly kind words and we all know exactly what Kim actually wants to do with her fist to anyone that copies her style. Ding! Ding!

Meanwhile, you tell us: Who looks better in this dress?

Rosie O'Donnell has spoken out about new girlfriend Tracy Kachtick-Anders.

On her Sirius XM radio show yesterday, the former talk show host described the new woman in her life  as a "lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely person."

Referring to her relationship with the an artist and mother of six, Rosie said it was "yummy. I love it all ... It's almost too good to be true!"

Even Elisabeth Hasselbeck has to be happy to hear that O'Donnell has found love once again. Okay, maybe not.

Rosie

O'Donnell added that she's shocked the pair has received the amount of attention that's come their way since they were seen holding hands in Miami December 29.

"I had no idea that it would be on CNN," Rosie said, mocking a news anchor: "'Rosie has a new girlfriend – tonight at 6.'"

In October, O'Donnell announced a split from long-time partner Kelli Carpenter. Reports said Kelli had moved out a long time ago.

"We have different styles of living," Rosie later explained to Howard Stern. "I'm very messy. She's very not."

Just weeks after she made news on a joyous occasion, Casey Johnson has passed away.

The Johnson & Johnson heiress was found dead in Los Angeles this morning. She was 30 years old.

On December 9, Johnson and Tila Tequila announced they were engaged. TMZ spoke to the reality star earlier this evening, who said Johnson stayed at her house on December 28 after the pair had an argument. Tila has been unable to contact Casey since.

Johnson adopted a three-year old girl, Ava, from Kazakhstan in 2007. Her cause of death is unknown at this time, though it appears Casey had been dead for several days before her body was discovered.

Our thoughts are with Tila and Johnson's loved ones.
