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.

When Nick Jonas covered a Michael Jackson classic a couple days ago, it was a welcome tribute to a late, iconic figure.

But when the young singer gave a shout-out to Taylor Swift and then performed a version of her smash "You Belong With Me" at a Philadelphia concert on Saturday, it was an unusual gesture aimed at his brother's ex-girlfriend.

Indeed, Joe Jonas famously (and immaturely) dumped Taylor in a 27-second phone call over a year ago and also slammed her in a Jonas Brothers' single.

Is Nick trying to bury the siblings' hatchet with Swift? It would serve them well to get on the good side of this successful star, that's for certain.

Watch Jonas cover Taylor below and let us know your thoughts on this rendition:

Note to Hollywood: there are two ways to tell if it's time to end a successful franchise.

  1. When it's latest edition is universally panned by critics.
  2. When there's so much drama behind the scenes of a planned follow-up that the entire script is scrapped, the director replaced and the stars given the axe.

Such is the case with Spider-Man 4, as Sony Pictures has announced a reboot to the franchise. The fourth installment in this series - very tentatively scheduled for a summer 2012 release - will bid farewell to Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst and feature Peter Parker as a high school student.

Wrote the movie studio in a supposedly optimistic statement:

"A decade ago we set out on this journey with [director[ Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, and together we made three Spider-Man films that set a new bar for the genre. When we began, no one ever imagined that we would make history at the box office, and now we have a rare opportunity to make history once again with this franchise.

"Peter Parker as an ordinary young adult grappling with extraordinary powers has always been the foundation that has made this character so timeless and compelling for generations of fans. We're very excited about the creative possibilities that come from returning to Peter's roots."

Are you excited over this new Spider-Man 4 concept?

Or tired of Hollywood sticking to the same sequels and franchises every summer?

Breaking, almost definitely made-up news: Tila Tequila is pregnant!

In her latest stream of Tweets - which follow last night's God-based barrage - Tila claims she is taking the high road; that haters are pissing off the Almighty; and hints strongly that she has a bun in her warped oven.

Like Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin, the most damning, hilarious evidence of Tequila's publicity-inspired madness is simply to list her Twitter messages word-for-word. Shake your head over them (listed from latest to oldest, all within an hour) below...

  • Thank u everyone for your kind words. I am off to bedrest again now. I have let go of all anger inside of me. It feels so good! TTYL! xoxo
  • My Wife has passed away and all I have left is the baby. I wish mean people can just respect the dead and respect a new life growing inside!
  • The doctor i visited says that all this stress and negative people around me getting me upset, can affect the baby in a bad way. Pls stop.
  • Yes I promised myself and my wifey that we WILL NOT discuss anymore thing about this. SO with that said. I have AMAZING NEWS 2 SHARE W/U!!!
Tila Tweets

Earlier today, Randy Jackson said he hopes the American Idol focus soon shifts from the judging table to the singing stage.

That may be difficult after today's announcement: Simon Cowell has confirmed that he's leaving the series after this season.

At a gathering of the country's TV critics in California, Cowell said he's bringing his popular UK show The X Factor to the United States in 2011.

“We did talk about me staying on both shows, but when we looked at the practicalities of that, it was impossible,” Cowell said. “In my opinion, it’s like having a good player and a good football team. The two have to be okay together. I believe it’s not my show, but it’s still very close to me... I’m confident [American Idol] will continue to be the No. 1 show. Everyone is committed to keeping it that way.”

The X Factor is almost identical to Idol, except that groups are allowed to enter the singing competition and there's no age limit on contestants. Leona Lewis was crowned its champion one season, launching her successful career.

Is there really room for it and Idol to air simultaneously? And, more pressingly, will you even watch American Idol without Simon Cowell as a judge?

When you're nominated for multiple Golden Globe Awards, and your show's soundtrack is among the most downloaded albums on iTunes, there's a good chance you'll remain on the air.

Still, Glee fans have an extra reason to be excited today, as the Fox sensation has been officially picked up for a second season.

"We've loved Glee ever since it was a pilot script, so it's been an incredible thrill to watch the show take root and see audiences embrace these characters in such a huge way this season," said FOX entertainment president Kevin Reilly today. "The show is a true and rare gem in television. We can't wait to see what they come up with for Season Two."

Neither can we, especially when the Glee cast is full of such cuties as Corey Monteih, Lea Michele and Dianna Agron.

The trio celebrates its good fortune at a party in honor of the Golden Globes below:

Drew Brees, you seem like a very nice guy.

City of New Orleans, you've been through a lot and deserve a celebration.

But we can't bring ourselvs to cheer on the Saints during this year's NFL postseason, not when Kim Kardashian says her marital status hangs in the balance.

Asked today on the Dallas-based radio show "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" about prospects for a proposal, Kim pointed to Reggie Bush's on-field performance as the basis for their future as a couple.

"I would actually like him to have [a ring]," she said. "I would like for them to get to the Super Bowl and win it. Get him a ring first. That's the deal."

Can you imagine how grating an engaged Kim would be? We shutter at the thought of a new story cropping up each day about her wedding gown, her first dance song, her bridal shower...

  • Out with Friends
  • Picture of Kim

Speaking of engagements, Kim also shot down the rumor that sister Kourtney has agreed to marry Scott Disick. She said:

"I don't think Kourtney really is thinking about that. I don't think she wants that responsibility right now. She's just having a good time loving being a mom. And I think she's just going to stick with that for right now."

After initial reports surfaced that Adam Lambert was hooking up with Ferras Alqaisi, all has remained quiet on that dating front.

Until now!

The American Idol finalist was spotted at Hotel Cafe in West Hollywood this weekend, attending a Ferras concert. The pair were then seen exiting the building and walking closely together:

Ferras and Adam

Soon after American Idol ended, Lambert went public with his sexuality and then with his relationship with Drake LaBry.

But those two broke up in late October and Adam wasted little time in getting close to Alqaisi. Are they an official item? It's unclear at this time.

As long as he's happy, though, fans - including the THG staff - are happy. Click on the images below for a few closer looks at Lambert and his rumored new mate:

Paula Abdul is out. Ellen DeGeneres is in. Simon Cowell may soon be gone.

Leading into tomorrow night's ninth season premiere of American Idol, the focus has been on this show's judging panel and its related controversies. Randy Jackson would like to see that change.

“People get sidetracked with [all the changes to the panel]," Jackson told reporters on a recent conference call. "Listen. There are contestants.... this is a singing competition.... Let’s focus on what we’re judging and what the actual meat of the show really is. It’s about finding that next superstar talent.”

Because Hollywood week kicks off later than usual this year, Jackson couldn't tease fans with the names of prospective finalists. But he did hype the auditions so far, which have been judged by a slew of celebrities.

“This season, we’ve got some really good, bonafide, stand-in-your-shoes singers,” Jackson said, adding his main three criteria for success on the show: "Undeniable talent, something that makes you unique, and some star persona.”

Overall, our favorite dawg promises “an interesting, wild, crazy season.” He says that that one thing remains the same:

“This show is definitely a rocket ship to the top.”

Unless your name is Taylor Hicks, that is.

Over the weekend, when asked by E! News about Casey Johnson's funeral, Tila Tequila (shockingly) made the event all about herself. She said:

"I don't want to talk about the funeral. I wasn't allowed to go and I am so upset. I can't sleep and I am on suicide watch."

Fortunately, it sounds as though the attention-starved blogger is no longer in danger of slitting her wrists. She's moved on, as evidenced by a series of Tweets she posted last night.

Unusually Serious

We really can't do her apology to God, nor her vow to be happy in honor of Johnson, justice. So we'll let Tequila take it from here...

  • 1st I would like to Apologize to GOD for feeling vindictive. It's tough right now, but I'm better than that. So I apologize God. Never again
  • Wow I feel A LOT better now! No point in wasting negative energy on negative people. It gets you NOWHERE!
  • So tired of drama. YOU GUYS READY FOR THE "OLD" TILA BACK??? Cuz I'm back & I love POSITIVE THINGS!
  • Ok I LOVEEEEEE feeling this happy again! YAYY I MISSED FEELING THIS WAY SOOOOO MUCH! WEEEE! Can u give me 3 more minutes 2 enjoy this? hehe
  • Umm excuse me to the happy cockblockers! My Wifey would NOT want to constantly see me sad. She wants to see me HAPPY! So now I will do that!
  • Naw I've had a very long long past few weeks. Me tired. Me going to sleep now. Good news tomorrow ok? me go bye bye zzzzzz is that mean? lol

We're glad Tila is feeling better, but bummed this may mean the end to her Twitter war with Perez Hilton.

Below, watch a hilarious video that recounts how these two losers have been at public odds with one another.

Miley Cyrus is growing up.

The singer/actresss will soon depart Hannah Montana; she's moving in with her boyfriend; and she apparently just started dressing herself.

While the first two items listed may not be a problem, Miley clearly needs help with her wardrobe. Paging mother Tish!

Cyrus stepped out in public this weekend in cowboy boots, torn jeans and a strange, shredded shirt. You'd think her Sex and the City 2 cameo would have taught the star something about fashion...

  • Total Mess

As notable, harsh critics of Miley Cyrus, we'll refrain from saying anything else and just leave it up to our readers.

What do you think of Miley's outfit?
