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.

Simon Cowell has made his expectations for The X Factor very clear: he expects the show to be number-one, totaling more viewers than his former juggernaut, American Idol.

You could tell he was hesitant to make the statement in the first place, and now Tony Bennett has issued an apology for it.

Yesterday, the singer appeared on Howard Stern's radio show and said "we caused" 9/11 because "we were bombing them and they told us to stop." Watch his take on the tragedy below:
