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.

It's safe to say Deandre Brackensick might be the most polarizing contestant on season 11 of American Idol.

The high school senior - who could easily pass for at least 25 - possesses a unique look (that hair!) and a unique sound (that voice!), both of which caused the judges to fall all over themselves with praise. Randy even said Brackensick was one of the most commercially-ready contestants the show has ever had.

Reed Grimm kicked off the first live American Idol show with serious energy. Or serious drumming, we should say.

Indeed, the confident contestant didn't just show off his Jagger-like moves in this Adam Levine cover; he also demonstrated his versatility - drawing comparisons to Casey Abrams in the process - by moving around on stage and taking on a drum set at one point. It was different and entertaining, that's for sure.

On the first live audition show of season 11, American Idol judges Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez tossed out nothing but praise. Every performance was magical, every contestant apparently did an incredible job.

It was pure fluff and rather annoying, but at least the panel got it right with one hopeful: Phillip Phillips.

With the March 23 release of The Hunger Games - a film that has set box office records for advanced ticket sales - Jennifer Lawrence is about to become a global sensation. But don't tell that to the actress.

"I look at Kristen Stewart now and I think, 'I'd never want to be that famous,'" Lawrence tells the latest issue of Glamour UK. ""I can't imagine how I'd feel if all of a sudden my life was pandemonium."

It is totally on between Justin Bieber and an animated beaver.

Two weeks after attorneys for the singer sent a cease-and-desist letter to RC3, the makers of a video game titled "Joustin Beaver," that company has fired back, alleging that its creation does NOT violate Bieber's trademark claims.

She's currently among the nation's unemployed, but Paula Abdul says that won't remain the case for long.

"I will definitely be returning to television," the ousted X Factor judge told reporters this week while promoting FemBody Nutrition, a line of nutritional supplements available at GNC. "I am in the middle of many network meetings, and I'm being pitched a whole bunch of different ideas."
