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 may be hard to believe, but there's a movie opening in 2010 that many people are more excited about than Eclipse.

No offense, Robert Pattinson. It's just hard to compete with Tony Stark and his iron-made creation.

Indeed, on May 7, Iron Man 2 hits theaters. While most fans of the first movie are excited to see Iron Man back in action, they should be warned: he won't be fighting alone this time.

As the following promotional poster makes clear, War Machine (aka Colonel Rhodes, played by Don Cheadle in the sequel) will take flight alongside his friend this spring. Does this make you more or less excited for the film?

Also on board for the sequel: Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer; Mickey Rourke as Whiplash; and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.

Will you go see Iron Man 2?

Near the end of her run on Britain's Got Talent, Susan Boyle lost it. She flipped out at people on the street and ended up in a hospital.

Now, as her debut CD breaks records and the singer is on the verge of global success, sources fear another breakdown for a woman that's never been anywhere near the spotlight before.

Great Britain's The Daily Mirror quotes neighbors of Boyle that say that she's been speaking in a strange American accent; complaining that her cat doesn't love her anymore; and blasting single from her CD around the clock.

"We’ve seen two ambulances and a doctor come to her house. Susan had told me she had been feeling pains in her stomach," neighbor Teresa Miller told the newspaper.

Singing Sensation

Over the weekend, Boyle said she was doing "very well;" but witnesses claim she burst into tears in New York - after performing on The Today Show, seen below - as the pressures of celebrity grew more intense.

Try to take it easy, SuBo. Your career is just taking off and we'd hate to see you become an older version of Britney Spears.

Can we please, finally move on from Adam Lambert's American Music Awards performance and focus on the great songs off the singer's new album?

A week after admitting he got carried away on stage and probably should have toned down his act, Lambert reiterated similar sentiments on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He told the host and the audience:

"It was maybe a little too far... I look back on it and I go, 'OK, maybe that wasn't the best first impression to make again, the first second impression.' I mean, I had fun up there, I had a good time, my dancers had fun and the band had fun.

"I respect people and feel like people walked away from that feeling disrespected. I would never intend to disrespect anybody. So that was not my intention."

While making those admissions, Adam also stuck to his belief that there's a double standard at play for provocative males versus provocative females

We agree wholeheartedly, as did the talk show host and new American Idol judge. Said DeGeneres:

"My whole thing is I feel like if you're offended by a show of sexuality on stage, then you should be offended by all shows of sexuality. It should be all forms."

Following the taping, Lambert Tweeted to fans that he's gonna tone down his act, humbling himself once more in public and writing:

Goin in a new direction now. Focus back on the music... Don't worry friends: I'm still gonna be me. Always. W/o appologies. Just gonna experiment differently w how I present myself...I'm learning. :)

Let's just hope Adam doesn't get too conversavative now. His flamboyance and his pride in who he is has always been a huge part of the singer's appeal.

There's good news and bad news for Nick Jonas fans. First, the good:

The 17-year old star is going on tour in January! Now, the bad:

Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez

His adorable brothers aren't coming with him.

Nick will be hitting the road for a month with his new group, the Administration.

Jonas began working on an album with this quartet in Nashville earlier this year. He isn't leaving The Jonas Brothers, but he is taking a break from touring and playing with them as he hypes the group's CD, titled "Who I Am." It will be released on February 2.

A touring schedule has not been released yet, but the band will make its performance debut on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live! special, December 2 on CBS. The tour kicks off a month later in Dallas and wraps up January 30 in Berkeley, CA.

Said Nick in a statment:

"With this tour we're going to try to accomplish the same thing we did in the studio. That's capturing some heart and soul in the music, and having fun doing it."

Will you try to see Nick Jonas and the Adminstration perform live?

One has made news recently because her husband may have cheated on her.

Another hasn't been relevant in years.

And the third is quickly disappearing before our eyes.

But Fergie, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian do have one major thing in common: similar taste in fashion.

On three separate occasions over the last few weeks, the three vixens were spotted out in a similar, cinched, patterned dress. Study the outfits below and then vote in our poll...

Threeway faceoff

Who looks best?

Somewhere, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Greene are sharing a laugh at Grady Sizemore's expense.

The Cleveland Indians centerfielder is the latest celebrity to have racy photos of himself leaked online, as well as the latest to make the mistake of calling attention to said photos by taking legal action against those that have posted them.

According to Sizemore, the pics were intended solely for his ex-girlfriend, Playboy playmate Brittany Binger. Shockingly, though, they found their way onto the Internet.

"These pictures were stolen illegally from my girlfriend's e-mail," Sizemore told The Cleveland Plain Dealer over the weekend. "It's now a legal matter that is under investigation. I can't say anything more."

Sizemore should really stick to hitting home runs and stealing bases. PR clearly isn't his strong suit.

The All-Star's legal actions have simply allowed this story to grow into national news. Heck, Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro was even asked about the situation and said the team will "look into it."

It's nice to know the sport that turned a blind eye to decades of steroid use now has online investigators tracking down non-nude Grady Sizemore pictures.

The Bud Selig era in a nutshell, folks.

Note to Kim Kardashian: when you make Kate Bosworth look like the Rush Limbaugh, something is wrong.

Indeed, Kim Tweeted a photo of her emaciated self to followers last week, causing the Web to wonder what the heck happened to the formerly curvy, sexy amateur sex tape actress?

The answer: QuickTrim happened.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian sold themselves (and curvy girls eveywhere) out a long time ago, as they agreed to shill for a totally unhealthy weight loss system. On the home page for this cleansing product, the folks behind QuickTrim write: [Our] statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Something to keep in mind for anyone that wants to follow the Kardashians' lead.

Sell Outs

On her most recent blog entry, Kim writes:

"I really feel like I have reached my fitness goal and now I am toned, fit and at a healthy weight and I just need to keep it up!"

From there, Kim posted photos (above) of her and Khloe in bikinis from a recent QuickTrim commercial shoot. They both look positively sick, gaunt and terrible.

At least the sisters are undoubtedly using the money from these campaigns to help third-world countries and those in poverty... NOT!

She doesn't create controversy like Adam Lambert.

She doesn't have an unusual, inspiring backstory like Susan Boyle.

She doesn't beat her girlfriend and then get rewarded for it with a primetime interview like Chris Brown.

Instead, Taylor Swift simply makes fun music - and fans around the world love her for it!

The pretty, talented musician took her Fearless tour to England this week. Below we've published a series of photos from her concert at Manchester Arena. If you attended the event, we'd love to hear about it!

Chelsea Clinton fans can finally celebrate for real.

Months after rumors spread - and were subsequently shot down - that the former First Daughter was engaged to Marc Mezvinsky, Clinton has emailed family and friends with confirmation that she and her longtime boyfriend have agreed to marry.

Chelsea Clinton, Husband Marc Mezvinsky

ABC News obtained a copy of the following email, written by Chelsea and Marc to loved ones on Friday:

"We're sorry for the mass email but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn't get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us."

Mezvinsky and Clinton have known each other for years, ever since his parents (former U.S. congressional representatives Ed Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky) befriended former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

We encourage readers to leave a comment with their suggested couple nickname for Marc Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton. We'll start: Clinsky!

Before Adam Lambert, there was Clay Aiken.

Both artists rose to fame on American Idol; both finished second to artists that are unlikely to have more successful careers than these runner-ups; and both are gay.

The latter item is utterly irrelevant, but it does give Lambert and Aiken even more in common. That, however, is where the comparisons ends.

While the former superstar flaunts his sexuality and is known for flamboyant, controversial performances, the latter has quietly carved out a productive career for himself on Broadway and on the sales charts.

Aiken turns 31 today. Send in your birthday wishes and honor him by clicking on the Clay photos below...

Mindy McCready and Elisha Cuthbert also turn 34 and 27, respectively, today.
