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.

As everyone knows, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Fortunately, there's a diffrent saying for Vegas magazine: When hotness happens, it gets released to the general public.

Enter Marisa Miller (if only we could!).

The super, duper model is featured in the latest issue of this publication. Fresh off an MVP performance in the Celebrity Beach Bowl, Marisa is clearly taking advantage of her time in the spotlight...

After last night's incredible rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Long As I Can See The Light," this may need to become a running THG feature:

The Crystal Bowersox Performance of the Week.

Despite being hospitalized earlier in the day for diabetes complications, the American Idol semifinalist strapped on her guitar, didn't complain and established herself as the season nine front-runner.

She even made a funny joke at Simon's expense in the opening video. Check it all out below and sound off: How awesome is Crystal Bowersox?!?

One is 17.

One just turned 16.

Both are young, adorable, talented and desired by millions of girls around the world. Life sure is tough for Justin Bieber and Nick Jonas, isn't it?

The cute singers may be able to relate to each other, but we don't care. We wanna know who you, the reader, wish to relate to... in bed!

Compare Justin and Nick below and then answer the poll question that follows. (Note to Miley Cyrus: Sorry, but you don't need to bother.)

Two weeks after her son committed suicide, Marie Osmond will return to the Las Vegas stage.

The singer and brother Donny will sing again for audiences on March 9. They have also added a handful of dates to their Sin City show, in order to make up for canceled performances in wake of their recent family tragedy.

The duo has tacked on five shows between April 13 and 17 at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino.

"These were previously unscheduled show dates, added to accommodate guests who had tickets to recently canceled shows due to the personal tragedy in the Osmond family," read a press release, while the show's producer added:

"I think performing will help the healing process for [Marie]."

We wish her the best.

A couple weeks ago, we were criticized for writing that Adam Lambert blasted Susan Boyle's album and rendition of "Wild Horses." Fans of the American Idol finalist thought that was a misrepresentation of his comments.

But make no mistake now: Ke$ha has very much torn into Britney Spears.

In a new interview, the outspoken singer was asked about Britney's habit of lip-synching during concerts and replied:

“I think that’s bull$hit. I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. If you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance."

  • Singing Not Required

“If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing. I would never do that to my fans... It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realize you are not actually singing... I would rather be off and be real and genuine about it to my fans."

This isn't the first time Spears has been called out for pretending to sing live. A few months ago, fans in Australia walked out of Britney's Circus tour due to the singer's shoddy lip-synching and general performance.

What do you think of Ke$ha's comments? Fair or foul?

It was easy to laugh at Erica and Victoria Mongeon during their MTV reality show run. Better known as the Ikki Twins, these sisters starred as lesbians on the dating series A Double Shot at Love.

But this is no laughing matter: Erica is in a medically-induced coma after being injured in a major car accident yesterday.

The Ikki Twins

The siblings were passengers in a Volkswagen Jetta that hit a tire in the road and was subsequently rear-ended by a truck when the driver attempted to pull over. The crash took place near Bakersfield, California.

"Right after the accident everybody was feeling OK, but Rikki had a bump on her head and nobody thought it was a big deal, but for just for the heck of it they went to the hospital," rep Rick Brown told E! News, explaining how things got worse from there:

"Then, the doctors did a test that said she had bleeding in her skull. She never felt bad, like you would expect, but they put her into a medically-induced coma and will keep her down until Friday. The plan is to bring her out of the coma on Friday and take it from there."

Neither Victoria nor the car's driver were seriously injured.

Brown has asked fans to pray for Erica, though she's expected to survive.

** UPDATE: Erica is not out of the woods yet, but her manager says her eyes are open and she's responsive.

She went from the hospital bed to the American Idol stage to the leader of the season nine pack in just 24 hours.

Indeed, we aren't the first website to shower Crystal Bowersox with praise - and we definitely won't be the last - but it's well-deserved.

On a night of live performances that overshadowed the guys' lackluster efforts the evening before, Bowersox recovered from a dangerous illness and led the way. We run down the top 10 below...

  1. Crystal Bowersox: She gets points for showing up and for not playing the sympathy card. But especially for her unique rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Long As I Can See the Light."
  2. Lilly Scott: A close second. Challenged herself with the Sam Cooke classic “A Change is Gonna Come” and was even better than last week. Love her confidence in just who she is.
  3. Michelle Delamor: Note to Todrick Hall: this is how you re-arrange a song! Michelle comes across as a professional singer and turned a Creed rock single into a ballad.
  4. Siobhan Magnus: The anti-Aretha Franklin sung Franklin's "Think" and showcased her versatility. The place went nuts when she hit her high notes.
  5. Katelyn Epperly: Ellen was off base with this critique. The song was supposed to be slow, and the use of the piano proved that Katelyn has multiple sides to her.
  6. Katie Stevens: She has a great voice and a great personality. The judges have to get over the fact that she's 17 and just let her sing.
  7. Paige Miles: It's always daring to take a song by an American Idol winner, but Miles did Kelly Clarkson's "Walk Away" sort of proud. Definitely needed more of an edge to it.
  8. Didi Benami: We felt terrible for when the tears welled up during the judges' criticism. But "Lean On Me?" Really? It's impossible to make that song your own at this point.
  9. Lacey Brown: Simply not up to par, vocals-wise, with the other contestants.
  10. Haeley Vaughn: We're all for being happy, but her constant smiling freaks us out. She's like a doll of some kind.mi

It's a clear choice, in our view: Lacey and Haeley should go home tonight. What do you think?

As Robert Pattinson continues to make the media rounds, his Remember Me co-star Emilie de Ravin is praising the actor at every turn.

Asked in general about the Twilight Saga stud, the Austrlian beauty told E! News:

"He's a lovely guy. Nothing felt unnatural or weird."

Except, perhaps, the atmosphere around the set. The movie was filmed in New York City and Pattinson fans would line the streets, trying to get a look at their favorite star, snapping photos, screaming.

"Crazy is the word," de Ravin said. "It's a little challenging sometimes. We were very accessible to people in Manhattan... You're trying to work out your rehearsal and all these eyes just watching everything you're doing."

Posing with Fans

In Remember Me, Pattinson portrays the rebellious son of a wealthy New Yorker. He falls in love with de Ravin's Ally, the daughter of a Queens cop. It takes place in late 2001, so you can imagine the recent tragedy everyone in that city is facing.

According to de Ravin said, you better bring a box of tissues with you to the theater: "If you don't cry, there's something wrong with you."

And we don't think she's referring to the reaction many women have when they simply see Pattinson.

The Kardashians are getting way too predictable.

Earlier today, we posted a pair of tabloid covers that called out the relationships of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. We said the stories were likely planted by their publicists, so the siblings could respond later, garner sympathy from their fans and remain a major part of the entertainment news cycle.

It only took a few hours for the sisters to prove us right. Point, THG!

First, Khloe took to her blog and wrote:

"My sisters and I had a great laugh this morning. Star and InTouch decided to attack our relationships. Apparently I'm heading for divorce, Kim was dumped and Kourt was duped... Wow, sad week for us Kardashian sisters, and how coincidental that this all happened at the same time!"

The K Sisters

This is how the Kardashians roll: They greenlight negative stories to tabloids, whine about them to the press, boost the sales of said tabloids, make new headlines for themselves... and then do it all again a month later.

Kim then chimed in from her blog:

"OMG! Have you guys seen the front pages of In Touch and Star today!? Do NOT Trust the Media!!!!!!"

In closing, Kourtney, brought this perfect storm of publicity for the family home:

"Week after week Scott and I have been on the cover of In Touch with stories that make us laugh.... We have been blessed with the most amazing, beautiful baby boy and couldn't be happier. And saying that Scotts initials are STD and that he had a dogtag because he was proud of it... his initials are SMD, but nice story, idiots."

On one hand, you have to be digusted that so many people still buy into the Kardashian myth (i.e. that there's an ounce of unscripted drama to anything they do and say).

On the other hand, you really need to be in awe of the way they've taken advantage of a culture that's so obsessed with people whose biggest accomplishment to date is to focus the camera while Ray J does his thing.

The new cast of Dancing with the Stars is filled with more familiar names than usual.

Kate Gosselin? Erin Andrews? Jake Pavelka? These people have been in the news for months.

Evan Lysacek Rules

But on the professional side, there's someone who is a total stranger to anyone that's not a hardcore dance enthusiast: Damian Whitewood.

This Australian will make his DWTS debut on March 22. He's partered with Pamela Anderson and we can report the following facts about Whitewood:

  • He's spent the last few years touring with a production of "Burn the Floor."
  • He's represented Australia in the Worlds Youth Latin in Germany, the Worlds Youth Ballroom in Russia and was a semifinalist at the Blackpool International Championships in Great Britain.
  • He's appeared on Dancing With The Stars Down Under, as well as on the Australian version of So You Think You Can Dance.

Based on this resume, it doesn't sound like Damian needs our advice. But we have this word to the Samba-ing wise: wear a mouthpiece. Anderson's breasts could be dangerous weapons.
