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.

Jack Sparrow is back!

Sorry: Captain Jack Sparrow is back!

At Comic-Con today, audience members were treated to a video of Johnny Depp in his most iconic role, as he appeared on screen and teased Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment in this wildly popular franchise.

Due in theaters on May 20, 2011, the movie will take viewers to the fountain of youth. According to Captain Jack, it will also feature zombies, mermaids and a gorgeous actress. Watch the teaser now and just try to get the film's inspiring score out of your head afterward...

Gabriella Montez who?!?

In the upcoming movie Sucker Punch, it's safe to say that Vanessa Hudgens leaves her High School Musical character behind. Far, far behind.

Sleek and Straight

As Blondie, Hudgens plays a girl that comes to life in an alternate reality. The film is directed by Zach Snyder and focuses on an institutionalized woman that gets sent to a psychiatric facility by her stepfather. It comes out in March 2011.

In an interview this week, boyfriend Zac Efron described Hudgens as someone who "loves to have fun." It certainly looks like that applies in this case, doesn't it?

What's a break-up between close friends?

While Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato ended their romantic relationship in May, the pair still talk glowingly about each other in public and will soon go on tour with one another. Might this cause tension?

No way, Joe told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show today. He said: "Demi [Lovato] has been a friend of mine for a long time. I think that our friendship is so strong that it surpasses a lot of things and I think touring will be a lot of fun."

Starting on August 7, Lovato will open for Joe and his brothers as they all travel the country together.

Jonas says everything has "definitely been cool" between him and Demi since they split, making the duo about 16 billion times more mature than Michael Lohan and Kate Major.

Joe, meanwhile, recently returned from a charitable trip to Africa. He's pretty much perfect.

According to the latest issue of In Touch Weekly, there's a nightmare all Kardashians share.

No, it isn't that the family is in danger of falling out of the spotlight. They've already started pimping out Kendall Jenner to make sure this never happens.

Instead, everyone agrees that Kourtney should not marry Scott Disick, as this cover story conjures up quotes and rumors about an upcoming wedding between the reality stars...

This really is an example of Tabloid Journalism 101. Notice that it never says Kourtney and Scott are actually engaged. It never makes any statement that could be considered libel.

Instead, it simply capitalizes a few controversial words and teases readers with vague hypotheticals. Soon enough, Kardashian will come out and blog some response to the article, thereby garnering sympathy and attention for herself.

And the PR machine will continue to go around and around...

As you can tell from a new interview with Parade magazine, life is pretty good for Zac Efron.

Talking to the publication, the adorable actor dishes on his upcoming movie; his lovely girlfriend; and the unique way he wakes up each morning. Who needs coffee when you have a pool?!?

Zac Just Chilling

On choosing Charlie St. Cloud: "Every once in awhile, you read a script and you get that special feeling in your gut. I was touched by what the character, Charlie, goes through, and I thought it was a story worth sharing. And the fact that I have a little brother myself gave it a lot of resonance."

On how he starts each day: "The first thing I do every morning is cannonball into the pool. It’s the best way to wake up.”

On Vanessa Hudgens: "The song ‘Out Tonight’ is Vanessa in a nutshell - she loves to have fun. She’s a good partner in crime."

On his love of music: "I always have music on. The other day, I found out my biggest expense isn’t electricity or gas - it’s iTunes. I spend way too much on music, movies, apps, and games. I’ve got to get that under control."

Suddenly, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen seem like mature adults, wearing clothing completely appropriate for their ages...

A couple days after new modeling shots of Kendall Jenner hit the Internet, photographer Nick Saglimbeni has released more pictures he recently took of the 14-year old.

Yes, 14-year old. That bears repeating over and over and over, as you check out the photos of Kendall below. They feature the young teenager in a string bikini, fishnet stockings and exposing cleavage that has no business being exposed...

  • Only 14
  • In a String Bikini

On their blogs, half-sisters Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian have expressed enormous pride over their sibling's shoot. Writes Kim: "The whole family is so proud of Kendall. Soooo much more to come!"

It's unclear why these photos are cause for pride. Considering the Kardashians' connections, it's easy to hire a photographer and get the pics published. Moreover, any 14-year old can stand in front of a camera. There's no talent or hard work involved here.

There's simply horrible judgment by a family that cares more about attention than appropriate behavior.

Let's all raise a glass and toast Daniel Radcliffe today, as the Harry Potter star celebrates the most important birthday of all: 21.

With fans gearing up for the first installment of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - due in theaters on November, a trailer for which you can watch NOW - we can expect to see Radcliffe making the media rounds a lot in the next few months.

That's certainly fine by us. Like fellow British star Robert Pattinson, Radcliffe comes across as cordial, funny and relaxed in interviews. He's one unaffected child star, the anti-Lindsay Lohan of the wizardry world.

Send in your birthday wishes to Daniel today and enjoy the following photo montage in his honor:

  • Dapper Daniel
  • Harry Potter Star
  • Daniel Radcliffe Naked
  • Daniel on Broadway
  • Daniel Radcliffe Picture
  • Final Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Photo

Monica Lewinsky, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Woody Harrelson also celebrate birthdays today.

Forget Crime Scene Investigation.

For at least a couple episodes of the 2010/2011 television season, CSI will stand for Cute Stuff Incorporated.

A Big Hit in Madrid

That's because Justin Bieber will make his acting debut on the September 23 premiere of this CBS drama, portraying a troubled teen who crosses paths with the main characters due to problems he's having with his brother.

Producers say it will be a recurring role, meaning Bieber's character will show up again later in the season. Commence screams of shock and joy, gals!

CSI producers are clearly excited about tapping into a new audience with this casting coup. They said in a joint statement:

"Every 20 years, a phenomenon like Justin Bieber graces our world.  We’d like to believe that the phenomenon of CSI has had the same impact on popular culture.  The opportunity to bring them together in the premiere is a great treat for our audience and all of its new viewers.  This will be true event television.  We’re looking forward to Justin’s dramatic star turn, not only in the premiere, but in a continuing seasonal arc.”

In March 2009, Taylor Swift guest-starred on the series. She played a country singer named Haley Jones.

This may be the silliest question we've asked in the history of THG, but are you excited for Justin to appear on CSI?

In early May, Bethenny Frankel gave birth to an adorable girl named Bryn.

But in the warped reality show universe, this event took place last night, as Frankel went into labor five weeks early on Bethenny Getting Married. It made for some exciting TV, as detailed below in our weekly show recap...

Bethenny went to a baby safety and CPR class with other ritzy Upper East Side mommies-to-be on this episode.  “I don’t like any of this and it scares me,” Bethenny says about all the back blows, chest compressions, and rescue breaths. 

The leaders of this course also teach the participants how to break down a stroller to throw in the trunk of a cab and how to install a car seat in a Town Car.  I am guessing this course does not include a lesson on how to install a car seat in a Kia.

Next, Bethenny’s friend Lauren visits with her baby and baby nurse.  The baby nurse is wearing scrubs and a skeptical smirk.  Evidently this nurse, Gina, will come and work for Bethenny when Gina’s done keeping Lauren’s progeny alive for the first month of life.  (All bets are off on what happens to the poor baby after Gina exits.  Most likely a Russian nanny will step in and take over lest Lauren have to actually do anything for her own baby.) 

Lauren is so thin and trim she looks like she must have had the baby via surrogate.  She has no post-pregnancy bloat or double chin whatsoever. 

“I was curious to get some perspective on what a newborn looks like,” Bethenny says about the purpose of the visit. Lauren tries to get her very fussy baby to stop crying and you can bet that Gina was dying to just grab the poor kid away from its bony mom and calm it down herself.

One early morning that week, Bethenny and Jason wake up to find that Bethenny’s water has broken. She expected a “Niagara falls” gush of water like in the movies but it’s just a puddle in the bed and a trickle down her leg.  Bethenny is still five weeks away from her due date. 

“This is happening?” asks Jason.  Bethenny adds, “We’re not ready.  We have no bag packed, we have no baby’s room, we have no bassinette.  We have nothing.”

While looking over the list of what to bring to the hospital, Jason says, “It says to bring several copies of your birth plan.  We don’t have a birth plan.”  Thinking she might have time to kill, Bethenny packs her book that needs editing.  “Don’t pack thongs,” wisely suggests assistant Julie.  “You’re not going to want something in your vadge after you have a baby.” 

I would have to agree.

Then, Bethenny and Jason run around their bedroom buck naked for a little while.  I’m sorry, but don’t they ever want to tell the cameras to scram and give them two seconds of privacy?  I think showering counts as a time when cameras don’t have to be filming a person.  At least not for a show broadcast on a network other than Cinemax or The Playboy Channel.

What the heck is wrong with Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr?!?

Don't they know they're supposed to call the paparazzi before getting hitched, make a huge deal over their wedding and sell the photos to tabloids for buckets of cash?!?

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Instead, just a month after getting engaged, the pair snuck away and got married this week. The model and actor are already on their honeymoon, as Kerr released the following statement, explaining why she's canceling an appearance at the Australian department store David Jones:

"David Jones very graciously released me during this period so we could celebrate an intimate ceremony and honeymoon together. I’m very much a part of the David Jones Family and I am very committed to my role. I am enormously grateful to David Jones to have been given this time to enjoy such a special moment in my life."

Bloom and Kerr started dating in late 2007. We're incredibly happy for them, especially because we can officially start using their fun couple's nickname:

Give it up for Kloom!!!
