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.

Joe Jonas has risen to fame alongside his siblings.

Therefore, it's apt that his first major TV role would come on a show titled Brothers & Sisters.

According to reliable sources, the singer will portray a younger version of Balthazar Getty's character, Tommy, on an upcoming flashback episode of the ABC drama.

Double J

In a recent interview, Joe said he, Nick and Kevin would eventually reunite for an album, but that he wanted to use this time to further his acting career. Assuming this rumor is valid, he's found a great, critically-acclaimed series on which to do it.

Insiders also said Rachel Leigh Cook might appear in these episods (as a young Nora Walker); while Kay Panabaker will take on Calista Flockhart's character of Kitty.

** UPDATE: Sorry, but Jonas is out. Cody Longo will take on this role instead.

Settle down, Robsten supporters.

There was a bit of Internet buzz yesterday that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had broken up, or at least taken a break from seeing each other.

But E! News has clarified its original report and now states the following: Rob and Kristen are very much together and quite happy, but multiple movie studio executives would like them to cool off just a bit.

"Let's just say Rob and Kristen got a slap on the wrist," said an insider. "Everyone, from their management to the studios involved in their upcoming movies, is worried [Rob and Kristen] will start to become... distracted."

This concern seems a bit misguided, considering how rarely the couple is actually seen together and how mature each side handles the relationship.

But there are a lot of jobs and a lot of money at stake on each actor's next film - The Runaways for Stewart and Remember Me for Pattinson - and sources say higher-ups wish to make sure that Pattinson and Stewart have their eyes on the proverbial ball.

Of course, these same suits will be pushing Robert and Kristen to travel everywhere together when it's time to promote Eclipse. It can't be easy to date in Hollywood.

Hang in there, you two!

Kim Kardashian really needs to get a life. Or at least a baby.

Granted, she'll parade that poor child to every publicity op she can found, just like sister Kourtney, but at least she'll be doing something with her life.

Kris and Kim at LAX

The alternative - while one sister is off profiting from her marriage and the other from her child - appears to be for Kim to sit back and Tweet pictures of herself in a bikini. Or critique fellow celebrities on the red carpet.

Based on ridiculous outfits such as this, what makes Kim Kardashian qualified to judge others?

That's what Kardashian has taken to her blog to do, as she posted the following Grammy Award opinions yesterday:

Beyonce: 100 percent my pick for best dressed of the night. This Stephane Rolland dress is so gorgeous and her eye makeup works perfectly with the Egyptian feel. I also love the side part in her hair and the subtle glitter highlights. She always looks flawless and I love that she flaunts her curves!

Miley: Miley's Herve Leger dress was totally cute and age-appropriate. Some teens try to take themselves too seriously, and I love that Miley just has fun with her fashion and always stays true to her individual style.

Taylor Swift: Love this Kaufman Franco dress on Taylor! This is a hard dress to pull off because the sparkly fabric accentuates every curve, but she is tall and has a really slender frame so it works. Plus she wouldn't be Taylor Swift without her glitter, right? Doesn't she always look so classy!?

Sure, THG posted a series of fashion face-offs yesterday, too. But here's the difference between our staff and Kim: We know we have no life!

We have a special responsibility to help needy people.

So said the widely-respected singer yesterday, as she and over 80 celebrities gathered at the same Hollywood studio where the original version of "We Are the World" was recorded.

We're one week away from American Idol taking its show to Hollywood.

Next Tuesday, Ellen DeGeneres debuts as a permanent judge and we already know of at least one singer she'll be critiquing: Lee DeWyze.

This soulful singer auditioned in Chicago and hauls from Mount Prospect, Illinois. DeWyze has enjoyed a moderately successful career so far, fronting The Lee DeWyze Band and specializing in acousting guitar.

He released a rock album titled "Slumberland" last year.

The smooth crooner once said his goal is to relate to fans:

"I want a connection with my audience in the sense that any song I do reminds them of a specific moment in their lives - not mine."

How selfless! So far, DeWyze and Andrew Garcia represent our favorite male semifinlists on the show. Below, you can listen to a single by the former and judge his chances on American Idol.

It's a big day for superstitious TV fans.

Despite the efforts of the morons at PETA, Punxsutawney Phil will prognosticate on the winter later this morning; while Lost will premiere its sixth and final season.

But it's also a big day for one of the most underrated singers on the planet: Shakira turns 33!

Because her hips don't lie, we must also be honest with readers when it comes to this artist. She's ridiculously talented. Shakira has won a pair of Grammy Awards, eight Latin Grammys and even received a Golden Globe nomination.

Moreover, Shakira started the Pies Descalzos Foundation, which subsidizes education and builds schools in the star's home country of Colombia.

For her humanitarian efforts and a dancing style that makes monks drool, we encourage readers to send in their birthday wishes to Shakira today...

Late last week, Selena Gomez appeared on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.

Shockingly, she didn't pimp out any babies. Instead, she simply gushed about a friend.

“One of my favorite stories with Taylor Swift was when I was going through a very hard breakup," Selena told listeners. "She came to my house at 10:30 at night and knocked on my door. I opened it, and she had two big bags of junk food, cookies, Snickers and soda."

“She put it on the table, put her laptop on, we made a video, and she told me that now we could look forward to breakups, since we know the other one will get us junk food!”

That may be the cutest story we've ever heard. Let's hope Swift doesn't require the same treatment, though, if her rumored relationship with Cory Monteith sours.

Beloved Swift

Overall, Selena concluded about her pal: “She’s very sweet.  I feel very lucky to have her in my life."

Of course, there's another Taylor in Gomez's life. What does she think of Twilight Saga stud Taylor Lautner?

"[He's amazing]. He is so awesome... I love Lautner!”

Selena isn't exactly alone in that opinion. Far from it.

Yes, Nick Jonas has embarked on a solo career.

But, no, the adorable mop head is not finished recording with his brothers.

Those are the main points covered by the singer in the latest issue of Teen Vogue. Below, while posing a few adorable shots of Nick, we summarize the rest of his interview...

On fronting his own band: Songs were pouring out of me. I've been wanting to do this for three years.

On love: I want someone to love me for my passion for music. It's all I've ever thought about.

On the future of The Jonas Brothers: I promise you, the trio is intact.

On Broadway: Broadway had a big part in my realizing that I wanted to make music a career. I'd love to go back.

Sounds like an intelligent, grounded, well-spoken guy. Aren't you sad you let him get away, Miley Cyrus?
