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 all the fuss was about?

For weeks, controversy raged around former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. Not because he was a questionable NFL prospect, but because he and his mom had agreed to star in a Super Bowl ad sponsored by Focus on the Family.

The spot aired early on in last night's game, and featured Mrs. Tebow briefly telling the story of how her son "almost didn't make it into this world." She didn't say a word about abortion or pregnancy termination, merely hinting at that issue.

The commercial then told viewers to visit the Focus on the Family website for more information.

The ad almost seems worthy of more controversy from the right than the left: couldn't the $2.5 million spent on it have been used more practically?

In a very weak crops of Super Bowl commercials, two others stood out for humor's sake:

The first starred a young boy that's very protective of his mother... and his chips.

The second featured a bunch of men in their underwear. Watch each one below and let us know: Which ad was your favorite?

How do you replace Jesus?

It didn't take Madonna long to answer that difficult question, as the singer has found a new boy toy in light of her break-up with Jesus Luz.

The Material Girl is reportedly dating Jon Kortajarena, a 24-year old Spanish model that appears in A Single Man. In that movie, he portrays a hustler Colin Firth's character meets outside of a liquor store.

The pair met at the film's NYC premiere.

Is Jon Kortajarena an upgrade or downgrade from Jesus Luz?

Kortajarena has been the face and body of Just Cavalli, Bally, Etro, and Trussardi. In December, Forbes Magazine ranked Kortajarena as the eighth most successful male model in the world.

That's quite an honor, almost as pretigious as ranking first in Madonna's bed... this morning, at least.

Sarah Palin gave the keynote address at last night's National Tea Party convention in Nashville.

Offering no policy alternatives, but winking often, the former Governor of Alaska assailed Barack Obama and the current administration. Regarding his plummeting poll numbers and the election of Scott Brown to the Senate, Palin taunted:

Barack and Michelle Obama Pic

"How's that hope-y, change-y stuff workin' out for you? You'd better stop lecturing and start listening."

Asked how she would handle terrorism, she said simply: "We win. They lose."

Right. Thanks for playing, Sarah.

In case she forgot the key points with which she'd rile up the crowd, yet not actually deal with in any rational manner, Palin made like a middle school student and scribbled them on her hand:

Other than general conservative principles - such as lower taxes (which Obama has done) - the speech was bereft of Palin's own ideas, an indication that she may not run for President in 2012 or has no ideas. Possibly both.

If the Republicans take back the House later this year, Palin was asked the top three items that should be on their agenda. Her response:

  1. Rein in spending.
  2. Devote resources to coal and oil as sources for energy.
  3. Focus on divine intervention for the country.

Seriously. Those were her top three policy initiatives on her list.

She wasn't asked how much cash she pocketed for posing with daughter Bristol on the cover of a supermarket tabloid.

Using her speech to incite a crowd that already thinks Obama is a tyrant socialist - an awfully ineffective one, if so, as he's given billions to the banks - Palin implored: "America is ready for another revolution!"

It's unclear what this actually means, except that Palin knows how to draw applause from an auditorium full of misguided citizens that may mean well... but possess no grasp on reality.

While she didn't comment on any plans for the White House, the crowd stood and cheered at one point:"Run, Sarah, Run!"

Is something you'd like to see? Do you hope Sarah Palin runs for President in 2012?

Note to future suitors on The Bachelor: if you wish to win over a man shallow enough to look for love on reality TV, you might not wanna tell him you're saving your precious flower for marriage.

Corrie Adamson learned this the hard way when the Birmingham, Alabama native revealed to Jake Pavelka that she was a virgin... and was promptly cut from the show.

Ben and His Babes

In a new interview with People, the wardrobe consultant spoke on her lack of aggression, universally-despised Vienna and more...

On not standing out: There were a lot of strong personalities there and they dominated our time with Jake. I’m not loud and look-at-me so I don’t think Jake got to see how much I laugh or how easygoing I am. In his defense, how hard is it to pay attention to eight girls at one time?

On Jake's reaction to her virginity: I think he saw me younger after that and associated that with not having life experiences. But it has nothing to do with my age. If I was Jake’s age and single, I would still be a virgin. And it isn’t because I didn’t have opportunities or am immature. It takes more maturity to put that off.

On remaining women: I think that him and Vienna and Ali had a strong connection. Vienna probably makes Jake feel really young and like a man. But I would be surprised if they last. As far as what Jake said he was looking for, they’re very different.

On Vienna: She has a big personality that clashes with the other girls. I don’t think she’s intentionally mean, but she’s young and doesn’t think before she speaks... I don’t think she has a malicious heart, but if Jake would have seen things that went on with just the girls around, the final four would have been different.

One more note to potential cast members: Forget throwing yourself at a man you hardly know on national TV. Just pose topless for Maxim if you want attention.

In the fantasies of many females, Taylor Lautner is their boy toy.

On the big screen, similarly, he'll soon portray a character based on a toy.

The Twilight Saga cutie has signed on to anchor Stretch Armstrong, a movie based on an action figure of the same name.

As written by The Hollywood Reporter, this family friendly action film will tell the story of “an uptight spy who stumbles across a stretching formula, which he takes and must now adjust to in everyday life and when fighting crime."

Check out the following commercial for the Stretch Armstrong toy to see get an idea of what Lautner is in for:

The movie, which will be released by Universal Pictures, will be filmed with 3-D technology.

"In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global box office," said studio cochair Donna Langley. "He brings the perfect balance of energy and athleticism to the role of an unlikely super hero with a fantastic super power. We couldn't be more pleased that he has agreed to be our Stretch."

Look for Stretch Armstrong to hit theaters in 2012. This summer, of course, you can see Lautner reprise the role of Jacob in Eclipse.
