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.

Dag nammit! THG knew we should have made our move as soon as Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks broke up.

A woman like this doesn't remain single for long.

The gorgeous country singer has been spotted getting close to Kings of Leon's bassist Jared Followill over the last couple weeks.

Most recently, the burgeoning couple cuddled up the Lipstick Lounge in Nashville on Tuesday night. They were part of a group that included country singer Holly Williams.

"They were very affectionate, just hanging out at the table," a witness told People. "They stayed for about an hour and enjoyed karaoke. None of them sang, but they just hung with their group. Only a few people noticed she was even there. They didn't make a spectacle of it."

Added a rep for Kings of Leon: "They are friends and have been hanging."

That's fine and all. But if there are any benefits tacked on to that friendship, we'll be far from pleased! Call us, Julianne.

Seriously, ABC?!?

For the second time in as many weeks, the network has pulled the plug on an Adam Lambert appearance.

First, the singer was scheduled to appear on Good Morning America the day after his controversial American Music Awards performance. In a movie that reeked of homophobia and a double standard, Lambert was axed from the show.

Instead, he performed a perfectly clean routine on Today and has gone on to admit his AMA act "went too far."

Case closed, right? Not for ABC.

We Love Lambert

Lambert's was scheduled to put on an outdoor concert on the December 17 installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live! - but an an ABC spokesperson confirmed today:

“We decided not to move forward with the booking at this time."

No reason was given for the cancelation, but the gig had been booked prior to the AMAs. Lambert will now perform on The Jay Leno Show on December 21.

By the way: woman-beating Chris Brown will still appear on 20/20 next week. That show airs on ABC.

This is not exactly at the level of Tiger Woods having an affair with Rachel Uchitel... and Jaimee Grubbs... and Kalika Moquin.

But another professional athlete has been thinking with his penis these days.

Daniel "Boobie" Gibson, a shooting guard on the Cleveland Cavs, has knocked up singer Keyshia Cole. The pair have been dating for awhile, so it's not too unethical.

But put a ring on that, Boobie. Be a man!

Cole is due in March 2010.

There's one person more upset than Tiger Woods about Life & Style reporting on an alleged affair between the golfer and Kalika Moquin:

Khloe Kardashian.

Allow us to explain: Khloe covers the latest issue of that trashy tabloid. But, due to the aforementioned story, readers will now flip straight past her interview and read about the suddenly shady, skanky golfing icon.

That's not the sort of coverage Khloe's publicist paid for!

Below, we've included a few excerpts from Kardashian's chat with the magazine, as she answers critics that dare to question the legitimacy of her marriage to Lamar Odom...

On Odom's feelings for her: "Lamar's devotion makes me want to cry because the only other person who gave that to me was my dad."

On her sudden nuptials: "I really wouldn't have done it any other way. Many people have judged me, but I don't care how it looks to someone else. We're completely content, and that's the best feeling in the world."

On Lamar wanting to have kids with her: "He's said that kind of stuff to me in private - but I was shocked when he said it publicly! He already has two beautiful children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., but he can't wait for me to have more kids and form this new family. I know how happy he would be, and I'd love to have kids. But ideally I want to wait at least until we've settled into our new house."

Susan Boyle broke sales records in England with her debut CD; but critics wondered if the Scottish singer would have the same appeal in America.

Those questions have now been answered. Emphatically!

Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream" sold 701,000 copies during its first week in stores. That's the highest debut of 2009; and the strongest opening ever for a female solo artist since SoundScan began keeping track of such records.


Number One Singer

Aside from Great Britain and the United States, Boyles' album sits atop the charts in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and Canada.

Rounding out the top five albums sold in the U.S. last week, according to Billboard, are:

2. My Christmas, Andrea Bocelli
3. For Your Entertainment, Adam Lambert
4. Rated R, Rihanna
5. The Fame Monster, Lady Gaga

Can you believe Boyle is number-one? Can you believe Andrea Bocelli topped Lambert and Rihanna? In related news: who the heck is Andrea Bocelli?!?

He hit .334 and led the New York Yankees to their 27th World Series title this fall.

Earlier in the season, he broke Lou Gehrig's franchise record for base hits; was named an All-Star; won a Gold Glove; finished second in the league in hits, third in batting average and on-base percentage, fourth in runs and eighth in stolen bases.

For all those reasons, Sports Illustrated has named Derek Jeter its Sportsman of the Year.

It's a deserved honor for the future Hall of Famer, due to his on-field accomplishments. But there's another reason why Jeter has earned this distinction: you won't find a Rachel Uchitel or a Jaimee Grubbs in his past, present or future.

Sportsman of the Year

As fans around the world groan over the Tiger Woods voicemail to Grubbs - and lament the fact that others athletic icons such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant have also been exposed as cheaters - even the most ardent Red Sox supporter has to admire Jeter.

Here's a guy that has dated countless celebrities, all of them gorgeous, yet none of them ever having a negative word to utter about the star shortstop.

An intelligent player on the diamond, Jeter is even smarter away from the stadium. He's avoided marriage, enjoyed an honest life as a bachelor and managed to make headline solely for his baseball-related accomplishments. Not many athletes can say that anymore.

Said Jeter, upon accepting the award in NYC:

“When you think about being a good sportsman, there’s a lot of things that come to mind. People tell you it’s success on the baseball field... I also think there’s a lot of qualities that go into it - hard work, dedication, pride, humility. These are all things that I learned at a very young age.”

Oh, there's another reason why Jeter has earned our perpetual admiration: he doesn't just tap the dirt off his cleats prior to an at-bat; he taps THIS PIECE every night!

There's good news, bad news and really, really bad news for Lindsay Lohan these days.

First, the good: the actress doesn't look awful in newly-released outtakes from her recent Sunday Times pictorial.

In late October, we posted a trio of images of Lohan in the weekly British newspaper, none of which were particularly flattering. But these photos, which somehow didn't make the cut, show Lindsay at her best... which isn't saying much, we know.

Then, of course, there's the bad news: Lohan's career - which once showed promise with starring turns in movies such as Mean Girls and guest appearances on Ugly Betty - has been reduced to posing for random, international publications.

Seriously, would any movie studio hire her for a major release at this point?

Finally, there's the REALLY bad news: Lindsay's father is Michael Lohan, an individual that fakes suicide Tweets, releases taped phone calls with his daughter and falls behind on child support payments.

He's almost enough to make us feel sorry for Lindsay.

Thank you, Catholic Church!

For months, The Hollywood Gossip has been calling out PETA for its attention-seeking tactics; the charity clearly cares more about making headlines with racy ads than actually saving animals.

Now, we've got the backing of over one billion people, as the Catholic League has taken issue with PETA's latest, ridiculous poster: a shot of Joanna Krupa naked, covering herself with a cross.

Wrote Catholic League President Bill Donohue in a statement:

"The fact is that cats and dogs are a lot safer in pet stores than they are in the hands of PETA employees. Moreover, pet stores don't rip off Christian iconography and engage in cheap irreligious claims.

"PETA is a fraud. It also has a long and disgraceful record of exploiting Christian and Jewish themes to hawk its ugly services. Those who support this organization sorely need a reality check. They also need a course in Ethics 101."

Nude for PETA

Responded Krupa:

"As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads. I'm doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God's creation."

That's dandy, Joanna. But can you explain how posing nude, with a crucifix covering your private parts, is remotely related to that cause? No way it's to hype your upcoming Playboy pictorial, right?

"I think worrying about going topless in a photo shoot or film is really ridiculous," Krupa said to Fox News. "And the fact is, Pope John Paul said, since we were born naked, it is art, and it's just showing a beautiful body that God created."

Somewhere, Levi Johnston is nodding in agreement.

Whose side are you on in this feud?

New Moon is still raking in cash.

There's over seven months until Eclipse is released.

But, hey, it's never too early to discuss Breaking Dawn, is it?

Sources have confirmed that the final installment in the Twilight Saga will be broken up into two films, similar to the plans for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Said an insider of the movie studio's thinking:

"Knowing Summit, [the announcement] will be soon, with the giant success of New Moon. Why would they not stretch it out and make as much money as possible from this franchise?"

Of course, the question on everyone's mind concerns the flick's stars: Will Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson be available for twice the shooting?

Keeping Distance

Too much of a good thing? Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will star in a Breaking Dawn double feature.

Yes, a source told E! News. Fans have nothing to worry about.

"They are so on board. But the money has to be right. If it is, it'll happen - especially now that [Rob and Kristen] are learning better how to handle the press."

We doubt Rob or Kristen has to be concerned about money ever again. The studio could offer each a billion dollars for Breaking Dawn and still see a return on its investment.

Are you excited for THREE more films in the Twilight Saga? Or do you fear this decision may create Robsten and vampire backlash?

It's easy to forget how far Justin Timberlake has come.

Just a few years ago, the singer was part of 'NSync, one of numerous boy bands that flamed out after a couple years and a few hits.

Back then, could anyone have predicted that JT would go on to work with hip hop artists such as Timbaland, become one of the most popular hosts in Saturday Night Live history and be considered the most successful male singer of his generation?

Oh, and land a certified hottie as his girlfriend?

For a new movie, however, Timberlake is going back in time. He stars in The Social Network, which is based on the founding of Facebook. Other details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but the crooner was recently spotted on set sporting blonde, curly locks.

Just like the old days. See for yourself:

  • Curled Again
  • The Old JT

Do you like JT with blonde, curly hair?
