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.

Based on her latest actions, we have nothing but positive things to say about Miley Cyrus.

The singer/actress has recruited famous friends for an online auction to benefit victims of last month's earthquake in Haiti.

"Ever since the earthquake, I've been trying to do my part to help the people of Haiti – and I wanted to do more," Cyrus told People. "I want to get people involved and show that even the little things you can do can make a difference."

Starting February 8, you can visit Ebay.com/Miley to bid on the Herve Leger dress the singer wore to the Grammy Awards, along with two tickets to the Hollywood premiere of The Last Song.

Meanwhile, Nicole Richie has donated jewelry, while Britney Spears has handed over the outfit she wore to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.

"Everyone has been so generous," Miley said. "My mom and I started calling and texting all of our friends to see if they’d like to be a part of the auction. Demi [Lovato] was one of the first to respond. Hugh Jackman was also excited to donate something."

All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.

He's agreed to surrender, the infighting has ceased and Conrad Murray will be arraigned later today.

The doctor suspected of recklessly injecting Michael Jackson with sedatives is expected to plead not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter.

According to TMZ sources, he will arrive at the courthouse at approximately 1 p.m. PST, with the hearing scheduled for a half hour later. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department will send along more deputies than usual, out of crowd control and safety concerns.

Bad Doc

Bail will likely be set at $25,000.

Once this is paid and the arraignment concludes, Dr. Murray will leave the city and head to either to Las Vegas or Houston.

If any of these details change, we'll let you know. But this is the first step in what's likely to become a circus of a trial. THG will be there every step of the way.

** UPDATE: Murray has officially been charged. According to the criminal complaint, the D.A. alleges Dr. Murray:

"Did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson ... in the commission of an unlawful act, not a felony; and in the commission of a lawful act which might have produced death, in an unlawful manner, and without due caution and circumspection."

The New Orleans Saints defied oddsmakers and won Super Bowl XLIV last night, defeating the favored Indianapolis Colts 31-17.

While MVP Drew Brees and company dedicated the victory to their city and the fans that have stuck with them through the most difficult of times, Kim Kardashian was focused on her man.

"I am so proud of Reggie and the Saints!" she told People. "New Orleans deserves this – it's such a huge accomplishment!"

Bush finished the game with 63 combined rushing and receiving yards.

It wasn't an incredible performance, but it was better than that of Hank Baskett.

Kendra Wilkinson's husband dropped the New Orleans onside kick that started the second half and led to a Saints touchdown. The former Playmate had said she and Hank would have "a lot of sex" if the Colts won, but Hank may need it now more than ever.

But let's focus on the positive: Kim attended the game with her mom and brother. Afterwards, she said:

"Reggie has waited his whole life for this moment. It came and they conquered. It was a really good win!"

Congratulations to Bush, the Saints and the team's native city. Below, you can watch Kim and Reggie embrace on the field.

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?
