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.

Someday, Taylor Lautner and Zac Efron might get nominated for an Academy Award.

For now, the adorable pair will need to settle for an opening monologue shout-out.

During last night's ceremony, hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwon recognized Lautner and Efron in the crowd and joked that the latter duo would resemble the former pair in just five years.

Until that day comes, we can scream and drool over Taylor and Zac. Please do so below, as you compare the young studs on the red carpet...

At last night's Academy Awards, Miley Cyrus made bigger news than Sandra Bullock.

The latter won Best Actress, but the former admitted she was dating Liam Hemsworth. Asked whether she was the Australian actor's girlfriend, Miley said "yes." Asked if she was in love, Cyrus replied "maybe."

It was a big evening for the young singer/actress, as she then appeared on stage (admittedly nervous) and handed out the award for Best Original Song.

But can Miley herself take home the trophy for Best Looking Young Celebrity at the event? She's matched up against Kristen Stewart in this showdown, as the Twilight Saga star appeared alongside Taylor Lautner and introduced a montage of horror movie clips to the audience.

Compare, contrast and vote below...

When Evan Bayh announced last month that he would not seek reelection as the Indiana Senator, an unusual name surfaced as his replacement: Kendra Wilkinson.

Might the former naked model consider it? To quote a political figure with the same IQ as Kendra: You betcha!

Expecting Couple

"I don't even know what the Senate does," Kendra tells Details magazine in a new interview, sounding more and more like Sarah Palin. "I'll run for it, but I don't really know what it means. I would definitely campaign for better education in schools and donate more money to inner-city schools and stuff like that.

"I would definitely love to see kids have more focus in life with sports and stuff, and I know that, like, Mr. Schwarzenegger wants to take away our sports and our art. I'm totally 100 percent against that. Our kids need focus, especially these days when there are drugs all over the place."

What else did Kendra say to the magazine? We've posted a few nuggets below:

On her new house: It's so fricking amazing. It's in Tarzana, L.A. I'd never heard of it before, but it's almost better than Hollywood. I can't wait to show the house off on TV. Five bedrooms, like, seven bathrooms, a pool, a grotto-type thing.

On how she gets E! to turn off the cameras: I ask them politely to respect that we need some time alone. Or I just lift up my shirt. It's too expensive to blur boobs.

On her new book: Yesterday was my last meeting with my ghostwriter. I'm very hands-on. I want it my way or the highway. It's called Sliding Into Home - first base was my childhood, how I grew up, and the second base is my rough years as a teenager, and third base was the Playboy Mansion and the Hugh Hefner days. Sliding into home is me being married with our baby and being home.

Sit back and get comfortable, Adam Lambert fans:

The singer has released "Voodoo" online, a track from the international version of this debut album.

Lambert linked to the single on his Twitter account and wrote: “Song will be released soon in US on [Whataya Want From Me] & [For Your Entertainment] Remix EP!”

Remember: Adam will appear this Wednesday on VH1’s Unplugged. Tune in to hear acoustic renditions of his most popular songs.

What do you think of Lambert's latest single?

Earlier this week, Bill Simmons (aka "The Sports Guy") penned an online column, which argued the following thesis:

The eventual comeback by Tiger Woods on the golf course will be more difficult than the in-ring return of Muhammad Ali, following his hiatus from boxing that stemmed from avoiding the Vietnam War draft.

It's a controversial stance, one meant to elicit opinions and one defended by nine well-reasoned points.

So, how did MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann react? By immaturely taking to his blog and writing:

If the writer can let me know when Woods is punitively drafted by the military even though he is about eight years older than almost all the other draftees, I’ll begin to take him seriously. In the interim I am again left to marvel how somebody can rise to a fairly prominent media position with no discernible insight or talent, save for an apparent ability to mix up a vast bowl of word salad very quickly.

Simmons then Tweeted in response: KO, please know the feeling is mutual. You’re my worst case scenario for my career in 12 yrs: a pious, unlikable blowhard who lives alone.

We love any war of words between two outspoken individuals, but must side with Simmons in this case.

First, Mr. Olbermann, as long-time readers of The Sports Guy, we can tell you how he rose to his position as the top columnist at ESPN.com:

By earning a Master's in Journalism from Boston University; slogging away for years as a bartender while creating/building his own website; and being discovered by ESPN after he earned a loyal online following.

Some journalists may look down on Simmons because he represents the age of new media, in which a writer can thrive on the Internet without ever speaking to an athlete or going inside a locker room for his columns. But such a niche still requires wit, knowledge and hard work.

The guy recently wrote a 700-page book on the history of basketball that was number-one on The New York Times Bestsellers List.

Moreover, Olbermann has risen to his level of notoriety due to a similar recent phenomenon: the opinionated, 24/7 news cycle.

Finally, go ahead and disagree with Simmons' take on Woods vs. Ali. But do it in a respectful manner. A few days ago, Simmons took part in a Podcast with fellow ESPN columnist Rick Reilly because the pair has contrasting opinions on the Tiger Woods press conference.

Simmons isn't afraid to mix it up - professionally, respectfully - with those that don't share his points of view. But Olbermann was clearly using this Woods' column as an excuse to bitterly rail against The Sports Guy's overall success. That's just petty.

You'll never believe this, but Kim Zolciak isn't actually a lesbian. By all accounts, she simply stepped out with Tracy Young in order to garner a few headlines and stir up some controversy.

In an interview with People magazine, The Real Housewife of Atlanta refers to Young - a British DJ - as "a great friend of mine" and that's all.

What else does she have to say? Find out below...

On boyfriend Big Poppa: We’re doing great. He’s fantastic. It’s been so on and off in the last two years, but the entertainment industry is really difficult and takes a toll on relationships. People are so fascinated with any part that has to do with my personal life. And it’s just that. You want to talk about my kids, I’ll do it all day long. You want to talk about my wig line, I’ll do it all day long. But this stuff... it just really makes me laugh.

DJ Tracy Young

On what she's up to: My wig line is coming along amazing. I’m doing a celebrity VIP line first, and then I’ll [launch the line for the public] when I get the cost down. And something [else] I’m doing is writing a book on hair and makeup on a budget. And I have more music coming out, which is really great.

On her celebrity status: I have two girls in middle school and that’s what people forget a lot of the time. They’re my top priority. I could say a thousand things right now, but I’m trying to lay low right now. Every day it’s something new and it cracks me up. There are 40 paparazzi waiting for me the airport. And to think I wanted this so bad. But I wanted it, and I wanted to be exactly where I’m at.

She may not be dating Taylor Lautner anymore, but that doesn't mean Taylor Swift can't shower the actor with praise.

In the latest issue of Elle, the musical superstar is asked who she finds hot and replies: “Um, well... Taylor Lautner.”

Give Swift points for honesty, and for remaining so grounded in the face of such fame and success. Below, we've posted a few more excerpts from her Elle cover story/interview...

Is she relly ferless? “I overthink everything. I overanalyze everything.”

On one of her biggest fears: “Me making a bunch of bad decisions and embarking on a painful, slow, devastating tailspin.”

On scrutiny in the press: “I’ve had countless opportunities to do some really bad things. And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny... i’s not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don’t know.”

On writing about her relationships: “I like to categorize the various levels of heartbreak. I’ve only had that happen once. A letdown is worth a few songs. A heartbreak is worth a few albums.”

Late last month, the 17-year old son of Marie Osmond jumped from his Los Angeles apartment building and killed himself.

It was a tragic event and the reaction of most celebrities was to pass along their sympathy to the family before politely leaving the Osmonds alone. Except for Roseanne Barr, that is.

Old Marie Osmond Pic

The former sitcom star has taken to her blog and randomly cited Marie's son's homosexuality as the basis for his death, placing a lot of blame on the Osmond's church and pretty much calling Marie a liar.

She wrote the following:

marie osmonds poor gay son killed himself... because he had been told how wrong and how sick he was every day of his life by his church and the people in it. Calling that "depression" is a lie!

Yet the Osmonds still talk lovingly about their church, saying nothing about its extremely anti-gay Crusade. Marie also has a gay daughter! Hey, I want her and all the gay kids in the world to know that they are just fine being gay and that they deserve love and respect instead of insults and rebuke! I have gay people in my family and my circle of friends and I am kicking bigot ass and taking names!

She continued:

Marie please don't talk about how your faith in your church has helped you get through this one! Please get some integrity and tell that church of yours that you will leave it and stop giving it ten percent of your money if they don't stop trying to destroy your kids' and all gay people's civil rights and dreams and hopes!!

G-d is trying to use you for something good and this is your opportunity! Your church is wrong and on the wrong wrong wrong side of things! Get as vocal about that as you are about your diet. G-d bless you too, Marie.

The only reaction we can come up with to this: WTF?!? Who calls out the mother of a son that just committed suicide?!?

THG readers, send in your most hateful judgments on Roseanne right now...

As evidenced by his response to Ryan Seacrest's question during a live broadcast of American Idol last week (Who are you winking at? My girlfriend.), Simon Cowell is in proudly in love with Mezhgan Hussainy.

Whether or not these two are engaged is still a question, but Simon's feelings for the make-up artist are not.

"You just know when you've found somebody special and I feel very, very happy," Cowell tells Piers Morgan in an interview that will air Saturday in England.

The judge, of course, will leave American Idol after this season. What else does his future hold? Possibly children.

"The thing about kids, it's like marriage, you know you have to believe you're in something that you're in for the long term, a hundred percent," Simon said, not dismissing the possibility of procreation.

The Afghanistan-born Hussainy has been seen sporting a huge diamond ring, but neither she nor Cowell will confirm if a proposal has taken place. In other Idol news:
