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.

Taylor Swift is awesome - and THG isn't the only company that thinks so.

The singer has been named the new spokesperson for CoverGirl. She joins the ranks of other stars that have represented the brand, such as Drew Barrymore, Rihanna, Queen Latifah and Ellen DeGeneres.

While Swift's ads for a line of luxury cosmetics won’t debut until January 2011, here's a sneak peek at her in the new role:

Says CoverGirl General Manager Vince Hudson:

"Taylor is beautiful, inspiration with an effortless-chic style, making her the perfect person to represent a new, luxurious collection of products debuting on Cover Girl next year."

We can't argue with any of that. Take a look at the singer on tour below:

When Ricky Martin and Adam Lambert came out of the closet, the entertainment world was proud, but not exactly shocked.

According to TMZ, though, Chely Wright is ready to make a surprising announcement: she's gay.

People magazine first floated the rumor that a significant star would reveal her homosexuality in the near future, and TMZ has confirmed it's Wright. The country singer, whose "Single White Female" hit number-one in 1999, has an autobiography and a new CD coming out this week.

We're always happy when a celebrity (or a human being in general) is confident and secure enough to make such an admission publicly - but it would help her cause if she weren't promoting an album at the same time.

If this report is accurate, Wright will be the first major country singer to go public with her sexual orientation. It's a big risk, considering the conservative demographic of country music fans.

We wish her the best of luck.

Following reports from multiple media outlets on Friday, Gabriel Aubry has confirmed the news: he and Halle Berry are no longer together.

"I am sad to say that Halle and I have decided together to separate at this time," Aubry said in a statement. "She is, and will forever be one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known, and I am certain that we will continue to have only love and respect for one another."

That's a fair, mature thing to say. We just have one question in response: What the heck is wrong with you, Gabriel Aubry?!?

Berry and Aubry  first met at a 2006 Versace photo shoot. They are the parents of two-year old daughter Nahla and are working on a custody arrangement for her.

"We have been blessed with the most amazing daughter in the world," Aubry added. "Her happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us. Please respect our privacy during this very difficult time."

On Friday, meanwhile, Berry saw a performance of the Broadway play Fences, starring Denzel Washington. A friend describes the actress as being in "good spirits."

While President Barack Obama deals with rumors of an affair with Vera Baker, he got to take the night off from scandals, debates and politics in general at yesterday' White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The annual event brings celebrities together with politicians, as a comedian is chosen to host the evening and the President always takes the stage to poke fun at himself and his opponents.

President George W. Bush caused controversy in the past by actually making fun of the fact that he and his administration never found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We went to war for misguided, false reasons! Hilarious!

Last night, though, Obama kept his routine mostly safe, but altogether hilarious. First, he yanked MC Jay Leno's chain: "I'm glad that I'm speaking first because we've all seen what happens when somebody takes the timeslot after Leno's."

He then moved on to John McCain," who “recently claimed he had never identified himself as a maverick," said the President. "And we all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID.”

Leno, of course, was his typical lame, unfunny self. He delivered such gems as referring to Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign as "Leave no child with a bigger behind."

Spotted on the red carpet were such stars as Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber (who posed together! yikes!), Jessica Simpson (who said she really admires Michelle Obama as "a powerful woman), Jessica Alba, the Jonas Brothers and more.

Quipped Bill Maher: "It's great to mingle with America's real intellectual heavyweights. I saw the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Jessica Simpson, Ryan Seacrest – I can't wait to talk politics."

Based on Rock of Love, we already knew that Bret Michaels possessed a sheer will to get with groupies on his tour bus.

But now we know there's one thing this rock star cares about even more: living.

As his condition continues to improve, Michaels' neurosurgeon at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix is marveling at Bret's recovery and attitude.

"There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels' condition is serious," Dr. Zabramski said this week, following the singer's subarachnoid hemorrhage on April 22. "Bret's sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable. He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor."

Michaels has two daughters, Raine and Jorja, ages nine and four.

He's also a diabetic who has suffered through numerous "roadblocks," Zabramski said, including "hyponatremia, severe cranial and back pain suffered from blood drainage." His patient in stable condition, the doctor added:

"It was a combination of Bret's fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room, and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow that enabled us to stabilize his condition.”

The team at Barrow will hold press conference on Tuesday, in which surgeons will update Michaels' progress even more.

If you're a legal immigrant in Arizona, walking down the street with your child, you may now get stopped by the police solely based on the color of your skin.

While it seems incomprehensible that such a law could be passed in the United States, it's a sad fact. It's also one that Shakira spoke out against yesterday and then actually headed down to Phoenix to discuss in person with the mayor and other locals.

Turns out, she isn't the only celebrity (or American with a conscience) to object to this law. At last night's Billboard Latin Music Awards, Ricky Martin said the ruling "makes no sense" and then went off on inequality in general:

"You are not alone. We are with you. Put a stop to discrimination. Put a stop to hate. Put a stop to racism... Long live love, long live peace."

The singer himself came out of the (obvious) closet last month.

A few others on hand also chimed in on the issue.

Said Latin Artist of the Year winner, Larry Hernandez: "It's regrettable that they are discriminating against for the simple fact of looking Latino. It's not fair. We have to say no to that law."

Meanwhile, at a Phoenix press conference, Arizona native Linda Ronstadt stated: "Mexican-Americans are not going to take this lying down."

It's a contentious issue, one many Americans don't understand. Sound off with your thoughts now!

It's too soon to tell if Bret Michaels will truly be able to resume performing next month, as a message on his website teased this week.

But the good news continues to pour forth about ailing rocker.

"He's doing good. He's not by any means out of the woods, but he is getting better every day," said sister Michelle Sychak in an interview with the Omaha-based "Todd N Tyler Radio Empire" radio show on Wednesday.

Michelle added that her brother's speech was coming along.

"Things are definitely looking up... he sounded good - as good as you can when your brain's throbbing," she said. "He seems very coherent to me and like he knew what he was saying... [He] does sound like Bret. Truth be told, I think he'll outlive us all."

Sychak said Bret is stable, but remains in the intensive care unit. As always, we wish him the very best.

Earlier this week, Miley Cyrus made wishes come true for many children in need. (See photos below.)

Now, in her new single, the young singer makes wishes come true for fans that want to see her follow in the footsteps of Britney Spears; i.e. sing seductively about how much all guys want her. Just sample these lyrics from the song "Can't Be Tamed."

For those who don’t know me, I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way, 24 hours a day
‘Cause I’m hot like that
Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention
Like I’m under inspection, I always get the 10s
‘Cause I’m built like that

It's safe to say we take issue with any song whose lyrics simply state: I'm hot and desirable. But we'll leave it to readers to debate.

Meanwhile, it's music video day on THG! Watch and listen right now to Christina Aguilera and Justin Bieber do their thing with new songs.

Following the report that Charlie Sheen has shacked up with Angelina Tracy, this alleged mistress is speaking out.

A couple weeks ago, she denied accusations that referenced her as a "paid escort," and now she tells Radar Online that rumors of her living with Sheen are equally false.

“I am not Charlie Sheen's mistress," Tracy said. "We are just friends and we are definitely not living together."

Hmmm... but could you be friends with benefits?!?

In mid-April, a tabloid caught Sheen sneaking out of his rehab facility, donning a disguise and visiting Tracy's apartment. Since then, both Angelina and Sheen's rep have said the actor was simply helping a fellow addict through a difficult time.

Sources say Brooke Mueller is sick of Charlie cheating on her and will soon file for divorce. But Tracy sort of denies playing any role in this development.

"I am living alone in my own apartment," she said, failing to directly address whether or not she receives visits there from a certain prostitute-loving, knife-wielding sitcom star.
