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.

Nick Bollea may always have a guilty conscious over what transpired in a car more than two years ago, but he's now out of the legal woods with the family of John Graziano.

In 2007, Graziano was riding shotgun in Hogan's Toyota Supra when a car accident caused him "to lose a portion of his brain, to be confined to a wheelchair and to be in a minimally conscious state requiring full time care," according to court documents filed by Graziano's relatives in a civil suit.

The son of Hulk Hogan served five months in prison for the crash, following a plea of no contest to charges of felony reckless driving.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, a settlement was reached in the civil case. Terms were undisclosed.

"We reached a settlement that was agreeable to all parties," Kim Kohn, the Graziano family attorney, told E! News. "We are very happy because our goal all along was to ensure that John was provided with the appropriate care for the rest of his life. And the settlement will do that."

Graziano was released from a Florida hospital in September.

Seen in the video below, Adam Lambert sung “Whataya Want From Me” with a group of kids in L.A. on Thursday, February 18. The event was part of the crooner's efforts to assist with DonorsChoose.org.

The talented, admirable musician dropped by to perform this single with the students and also handed out music composition books so they could write their own music.

If you wish to donate to classroom projects in honor of Lambert, visit DonorsChoose.org today. Then, take a look and a listen:

P.S. No, current Idol semifinalist Alex Lambert is NOT related to Adam. They share a love of music, not any DNA.

Man, this makes us feel old.

Hillary Duff, who we first started to follow in 2001 when she was a 14-year old Lizzie McGuire, is engaged. Long-time boyfriend, and Edmonton Oilers star, Mike Comrie popped the question to the actress in Maui this week.

This is actually the second accepted proposal between a singer and hockey player in the last couple months: Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher got engaged in late December.

Duff was most recently seen on the small screen during a six-episode arc on Gossip Girl.

We wish her and Comrie a happy, healthy life together!

Earlier this week, Simon Cowell said he hoped a female would come out on top of American Idol this season.

As loyal fans know, the judges often tweak comments and try to manipulate votes in the direction of contestants they're cheering for, so this is a comment worth taking seriously.

Two people that would love to prove Simon correct are Ashley Rodriguez and Lilly Scott. Both stood out after a week in Hollywood, but each for different reasons.

Rodriguez brings energy and a big voice to the stage. Let's face it, she's also gorgeous. Scott, meanwhile, is one of several singers that appears to be following the mold of Taylor Swift, singing beautifully and strumming her guitar.

Contrast the hopefuls below and let your voice be heard...

Which of these contestants will go farther on American Idol?

 

We've also pitted Crystal Bowersox and Janell Wheeler against one another. Cast your vote between those two hopefuls now!

It's been a big week for Kim Kardashian.

Instead of merely reading off cue cards for her reality show, or posing on red carpets for parties that pay her thousands of dollars do nothing, the former sex tape star took on the role of fashion and fragrance designer.

First, she walked the runway during New York Fashion Week, donning a dress she and her sisters helped create.

Then, she and Sephora officially launched Kim's new fragrance at a store in the city. Hundreds of people showed up, including one adorable Saints fan:

For the record, no matter how good she looks in a bathing suit, we'd much rather see this side of Kim than the woman that Tweets photos of herself looking "HOT" in a bikini.

Simon Cowell would like to get one thing out of the way: He's not engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy.

Personal questions aside, the American Idol spoke to reporters yesterday and addressed reports of who might replace him as a judge next season.

“I think they’ll find somebody who’s got that kind of experience, whether it’s a manager, artist, or like me, an A & R executive,” he said.

What about two of the most prominent names being bantered about: Howard Stern and Perez Hilton?

“I know Howard’s name has been in there for a while, but I’m fairly certain that there hasn’t been an approach at any time for Howard to do the show... He’s played records. He’s a DJ. He obviously wants the job. Good luck to him.”

What about the world's most self-obsessed celebrity gossip blogger? “Perez would be funny. He’s got a good taste in music, he’s a personality — that could work.”

AI Crew

As for Cowell's favorites this season, he won't specify any contestant. But his words make it clear that he's in the corner of female singers such as Crystal Bowersox and Didi Benami.

“There’s definitely a better chance of a girl winning the show. I’d love to find a Taylor Swift, somebody who’s relevant rather than just a contest winner.”

Ouch. Was that a shot at recent winners David Cook and Kris Allen?

In a recently-released promo for new episodes of 90210, AnnaLynne McCord's character of Naomi drops her trenchcoat and stands naked before her boyfriend. It's hot stuff.

We wish the actress had gone with the same look at this week's Shutter Island premiere, as she donned an unusual leather outfit instead.

Can't say we're big fans of the fashion statement made below. But whatever McCord is doing, it must be working: she continues to be involved with Twilight Saga star Kellan Lutz. He must not mind the feel of leather... or of the nude body referenced above.

What do you think of AnnaLynne McCord's outfit?

She might rarely been seen with a smile on her face, but that doesn't mean Kristen Stewart hates being a celebrity as much as some think.

While promoting the movie The Yellow Handkerchief, Stewart admitted that she can get sick of the paparazzi invading her personal space, but she also understands it comes with the territory.

Shooting a Scene

"I can't say I don't want that, because people take it to the extreme and say that I hate it," Kristen told E! News. "No, no, no! That's not true."

If it's taken Stewart longer than most to adjust, it's because she never saw any of this coming. When she first signed on for Twilight, the actress says she couldn't have predicted that she and Robert Pattinson would cover every tabloid on the market.

"We didn't even know we were going to make a second one. We were just like, 'It's really cool. It's different and we've never seen a love story like this.' I thought it would just be another cool Catherine Hardwicke movie."

It was... and then some!

As for rumors that Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies?

"It looks like a 'yes,' but it's still not concrete," Stewart said. "It would be hard to cram all of it into one movie."

If the final book really is broken into a pair of films, Kristen will remain in the spotlight for that much longer. Hopefully, she's at least smiling on the inside over that possibility.

A couple days after stating that Miley Cyrus was not his type, Justin Bieber may have found his future wife.

If he's willing to wait 15-20 years, that is.

A three-year old fan of the young singer was filmed by her mother this week, expressing her undying affection for Bieber through tears, sniffles and more tears. We try not to laugh at children very often, but this is sweet, hilarious stuff:

We haven't seen anyone get this emotional since that crazy nut job watched the New Moon trailer for the first time.

** UPDATE: YouTube has taken down this video. Darn them!

You know her as Harry Potter's future wife.

And he gives Edward Cullen a hard time as a member of the Volturi.

Jamie Campbell-Bower Image

But British actors Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower have come together off screen to form a new couple, as each will appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

“Yes, we’re dating," Wright said. "We’ve been seeing each other for a few months, it’s good. We’re going to the BAFTAs together on Sunday.

Bower plays Caius in The Twilight Saga, while Wright portrays Ginny Weasley. We wish these two nothing but the best!
