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.

She doesn't create controversy like Adam Lambert.

She doesn't have an unusual, inspiring backstory like Susan Boyle.

She doesn't beat her girlfriend and then get rewarded for it with a primetime interview like Chris Brown.

Instead, Taylor Swift simply makes fun music - and fans around the world love her for it!

The pretty, talented musician took her Fearless tour to England this week. Below we've published a series of photos from her concert at Manchester Arena. If you attended the event, we'd love to hear about it!

Chelsea Clinton fans can finally celebrate for real.

Months after rumors spread - and were subsequently shot down - that the former First Daughter was engaged to Marc Mezvinsky, Clinton has emailed family and friends with confirmation that she and her longtime boyfriend have agreed to marry.

Chelsea Clinton, Husband Marc Mezvinsky

ABC News obtained a copy of the following email, written by Chelsea and Marc to loved ones on Friday:

"We're sorry for the mass email but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn't get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us."

Mezvinsky and Clinton have known each other for years, ever since his parents (former U.S. congressional representatives Ed Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky) befriended former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

We encourage readers to leave a comment with their suggested couple nickname for Marc Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton. We'll start: Clinsky!

Before Adam Lambert, there was Clay Aiken.

Both artists rose to fame on American Idol; both finished second to artists that are unlikely to have more successful careers than these runner-ups; and both are gay.

The latter item is utterly irrelevant, but it does give Lambert and Aiken even more in common. That, however, is where the comparisons ends.

While the former superstar flaunts his sexuality and is known for flamboyant, controversial performances, the latter has quietly carved out a productive career for himself on Broadway and on the sales charts.

Aiken turns 31 today. Send in your birthday wishes and honor him by clicking on the Clay photos below...

Mindy McCready and Elisha Cuthbert also turn 34 and 27, respectively, today.

Forget 15 minutes of fame.

Susan Boyle is well on her way to 15 years and counting!

With final numbers still being tallied in the States, the Britain's Got Talent sensation broke the record for best-selling debut album by a singer in England last week.

Across the Atlantic, Boyle's album, "I Dreamed a Dream," moved 410,000 copies. It outsold new CDs from established artists such as Rihanna and Lady GaGa.

Said Simon Cowell, who produced the album and helped discover Boyle:

“I’m incredibly proud of Susan, as well as being delighted for her. The success could not not have happened to a lovelier person. She did it her way and made a dream come true... She’s amazing.”

She's also primed to conquer the music world in America. Final sales figures should be released shortly, but preliminary reports indicate "I Dreamed a Dream" will compete with Eminem's "Relapse" as the 2009 CD that sells the most copies in its first week of release.

That's incredible for a 48-year old woman no one had heard of when the year began.

He's been making news for crotch grabs and controversial kisses, but Adam Lambert is all about the music.

The singer's debut album premiered at number-three on the Billboard chart last week, as fans have responded positively to the first single off it, "For Your Entertainment." You can check out its official music video right now.

While that song is still burning up the radio, another tune from Lambert has been released online.

It's fast-paced, it's catchy and it's titled "If I Had You." Give it a listen and then share your thoughts on it below...

What do you think of the single?

Troy Bolton who?!?

While Zac Efron is thankful for his star-making role in the High School Musical franchise, he's also excited to expand his movie resume and enter the realm of true Hollywood A-lister.

The young stud takes a step in that direction with Me and Orson Welles, a drama that opens next month. He spoke to Parade about the film - and his hair, of course - in a new interview. Excepts from it are below...

On choosing the movie: "I had never done anything like this before... I thought, 'Maybe this time I've bitten off more than I can chew because I'm not singing and dancing. It's all about acting.' I knew people wouldn't see it as a predictable next move in my career, but I'd like to be known for more than predictability."

On his character: "I really connected with Rick - the way he kind of lucked into an opportunity to act, and thanks to Orson Welles, doors were opening for him. It kind of resembled my life experience growing up in the theater. In school, my whole life was focused on theater, especially musicals, which were a creative outlet. I had no clue that I'd end up in Hollywood. I'm still on the craziest ride of my life."

On his hobbies: "I like very normal things, like hiking and camping. When it comes to sports I go skiing, surf boarding, snowboarding, and skateboarding. I guess at this point a perfect day for me is probably just relaxing and hanging out with friends. It's not always easy to be left alone, but I try not to think about it. You can't let fear control you."

On his hair: "It's pretty low maintenance, so it's appealing for lazy individuals like me. You don't have to do anything really, it just goes that way. You don't even have to put gel in it or anything. There is one thing: If you wash it at night and leave it damp, just towel dry it, you wake up in the morning and you're all set."

A successful movie career, Vanessa Hudgens as his girlfriend and hair he doesn't have to style?!?

We hope Zac recognizes just how well he has it.

While the Tiger Woods affair and subsequent car accident may have sports fans feeling distraught these days, at least Grady Sizemore is around to lighten the mood.

The Cleveland Indians centerfielder, known as one of baseball's preeminent five-tool players, comes close to showing off his sixth tool in a series of recently-released photos.

Reportedly, they were meant for ex-girlfriend Brittany Binger, a Playboy model. As Vanessa Hudgens, Carrie Prejean and countless others know, however, these types of pictures always get out.

It's nice to see the shoe on the other, naked foot, isn't it, ladies? Click to enlarge - and enjoy...

A gap hitter, Grady Sizemore could likely get to at least third base with many women around the world!

Good luck, Ashley Groussman. You may need it!

Ashley is officially the fourth wide of comedian Tom Arnold, as the pair got married yesterday in an intimate ceremony in Maui.

Close to 100 loved ones attended the event, including actor Dax Shepard, who served as Arnold's best man. Arnold rose to fame via his long-ago marriage to Roseanne Barr.

Arnold and Groussman (a home organizer) met through mutual friends in April 2008. Wrote Tom on the couple's wedding website:

"I knew that if I could get Ashley to fall in love with me, I'd never have to worry about anything else as long as I lived."

We'll ignore the fact that he's shared that same sentiment three other times and wish this pair the best!

According to reports, Elin Nordegren attacked husband Tiger Woods' car with a golf club early Friday morning, a rumor that would lead one to believe the golfer was having an extramarital affair.

But this isn't the case says Rachel Uchitel, the woman at the heart of the gossip.

Matt Hahn and Rachel Uchitel

As an events planner, Uchitel admits she's met Woods on a couple of occasions. But she's never seen him outside work and never slept with him, she told The New York Post.

"This is nothing to do with me. We have never had an affair, and the claims we did are completely false... I am really upset about it because I am being portrayed as a homewrecker, when it simply isn’t true.”

Uchitel added that The National Enquirer paid a friend $25,000 to make up the story about her and Tiger.

She claims she offered to take a polygraph for the newspaper to prove her side, but "they refused it. They told me it was too late and the story was running anyway."

In October, Rachel was also accused of sleeping with married actor David Boreanaz. She referenced that in the interview:

“Other things have happened in my past that would prevent me from doing anything like this. I have traveled with men that are quietly more important than Tiger Woods and it is incredibly difficult to get to their hotel room,” she said, referring to the report that she snuck into Tiger's hotel room in Australia earlier this year.

Uchitel doesn't sound like a woman trying to sleep around and make a name for herself, does she?

As someone best known for saving par when facing a difficult lie, we'll see if Tiger can now save his marriage when faced with a series of lies.

Kim Kardashian is koming to primetime.

And she's bringing Vanessa Minnillo with her.

Most incredibly, both of these beauties will be fully dressed when they guest star on the December 16 episode of CSI: NY.

The installment will also co-star MTV VJ LaLa Vasquez and Train singer Pat Monahan, the latter of whom implied in a recent interview that Kim may actually play a criminal. He said:

"I play Kim's boyfriend, a musician named Sam Baker. Kim helps me get a second chance, but she has an ulterior motive."

Might it be to get famous by flaunting her breasts and reading off scripts on reality TV? If so, this casting choice finally makes sense.
