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.

Following a lengthy flirtation over Twitter, Demi Lovato and Trace Cyrus have ended their brief relationship.

Miley's older brother opened up about the break-up to People.

"Demi is one of my good friends and I definitely became very, very close with her in the past few months, and it's something I really wanted to make work. But unfortunately, we both have very busy schedules," the Metro Station singer said.

Trace says he and Demi remain close pals, despite the split.

"We gave it a shot and that's all you can do," says Cyrus. "Every time I hung out with that girl or talked on the phone with her, it was amazing. She's someone I can totally relate to... Maybe when she's older and we've both matured, we'll be looking for the same thing and it can work out."

For now, based on the recent rumor of Lovato cutting herself, we just hope Demi is dealing with this break up well.

Move over, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. At least for the next few seconds.

Your new co-star has the floor, as Xavier Samuel spoke out this week about his casting as Riley in the final two Twilight Saga films.

The X Man

Reportedly, the little-known Australian actor beat out American box office stars such as Channing Tatum and Tom Felton for the role. Samuel was shocked and excited when he learned the news.

"I was up against some truly great actors who I'm privileged to be considered among," the actor told a newspaper Down Under. "It's a fantastic opportunity.”

It could also be a scary one.

Reports on the set of Pattinson's new movie detail the extreme measures taken on behalf of the star against unruly fans.

Is Samuel ready for such attention? He'll have to be, as Riley is a vital part of Eclipse. The character is a student "seduced by the villain Victoria, who manipulates him in order to seek her revenge," Xavier described. "That's as much as I know!”

Sounds like more than most fans know about Xavier Samuel. Expect that to change soon, however.

While celebrity gossip tabloids speculate on a relationship between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, an actress that knows both actors well is speaking out on their rumored romance.

When asked by OK! about the status of her Twilight co-stars, Christian Serratos - who plays Bella's friend Angela in the franchise - said:

“I truly don’t know, I don’t know. There is a possibility. There’s a possibility that it’s all BS, I just don’t know. It’s going to be interesting finding out either way.”

Not exactly a confirmation, but not a denial, either!

Christian Serratos

Last month, Ashley Greene also hinted at a relationship between Pattinson and Stewart.

As for Robert's reputation as a ladies' man (he's been rumored to be dating Remember Me co-star Emile de Ravin and Camilla Bella), Serratos scoffed at such a notion.

“I don’t think so,” she said. “If anything he’s become more humble and more introverted."

And attractive, of course. So very attractive.

Kim Kardashian is a konundrum.

On one hand, she poses for bikini-klad photos on a trampoline, klearly attempting to garner headlines in any way possible.

On the other hand, Kim and her sisters are relatively harmless. They don't try to sing or star in movies or act any more important than they actually are.

Sometimes, in fact, they used their celebrity for good.

This past week, for example, Kim and Khloe Kardashian joined Reggie Bush in Africa. The trio took the trip as part of the Diamond Empowerment Fund, an organization that supports education initiatives focused on disadvantaged people on that continent.

Spending time with impoverished families, Khloe referred to the vacation as the "most incredible experience of my life." She wrote on her blog:

"We handed out food and milk to women and children and we got to play with the kids -- they were all SO adorable!!!!!!!"

First, Xavier Samuel. Now, Noot Seear.

The Twilight family continues to grow.

Seear, a Canadian model with no real acting experience, has been cast in New Moon. She'll play the role of Heidi, a villianess Volturi vampire who seduces human prey.

By the looks of her, this shouldn't be a problem.

Look out, humans. Noot Seear is out to seduce us all!

Said director Chris Weitz of the casting:

“We wanted someone who had an unearthly and unlikely beauty, but could also convey humor and menace. It’s rare to find a stunningly attractive person who also happens to have the ability to act.”

But is the model - who has posed for Calvin Klein and Alexander Wang, among other major brands - even familiar with the Twilight Saga?

"I started reading the books and I couldn't put them down," she said. "I've always been biting at the bit to get into the industry... what makes acting different is that you get a voice. You're not just a picture."

Based on her pictures, though, Kristen Stewart might need to worry. Will Robert Pattinson have the willpower to deny this beauty?

We hope this report is not true.

New rumors are swirling around Demi Lovato, as tabloids have published photos that appear to depict the Disney star's troubling habit of cutting herself, a self-mutilation reaction that some use to deal with difficult emotional issues.

Speculation first started around eight months, as the first set of questionable pics were released, seemingly showing Lovato's scarred wrists.

Now, Star Magazine has unleashed the pictures below:

Cutting?

"Demi has been really stressed out about her new show, Sonny with a Chance," a source told Star. "She's not getting enough downtime because there is so much work involved, and she's always being pulled in different directions."

Can such pressure lead to destructive behavior? Yes, says Jennifer Austin Leigh, a doctor that has never treated Lovato, yet, apparently, has also never turned down an opportunity for fame.

"Cutting is how she can let go of the stress that has built up inside - when she cuts herself, it's a way to cope," said the San Francisco–based psychologist.

Write in and show your support for Lovato. Hang in there, Demi.

Carrie Prejean has been through so much.

Following a series of nearly naked photos, the beauty queen was forced to expose her skin yet again at the 2009 Miss USA Pageant.

From there, she was asked a question by a judge, finished all the way in second place at the competition and then received far more national attention than if she had won.

It was a tough few weeks for Prejean, as the only motivation she even had for waking up each morning was the need to defend "opposite marriage" from the Satanic critics that dared to press her for more information on her views. The experience was barely worth the appearances fees and fame she accumulated.

Then, Donald Trump fired Carrie as Miss California and she was left to pick up the pieces with a book deal worth at least the six figures.

Prejean Press Conference

Indeed, Carrie Prejean will pen a tell-all memoir titled Still Standing, a perfect title for a woman that has suffered so much.

In the press release issued by Regnery Publishing, the company announced the book as follows:

[Prejean] will tell her side of the story, answering such questions as what happened behind the scenes at the pageant, why she answered the Perez Hilton question as she did, what really led to her losing the Miss California crown, and how she has been forced to battle the left's double-standard on free speech and the bias against conservatives who stand up for their beliefs.

God bless Carrie Prejean; and God bless copy editors. She's gonna need a bunch.

Simon Cowell wants Paula Abdul.

Not in the sexual sense, although the two American Idol judges often flirt like school children.

Instead, the British music producer has made it clear that his judging partner is mistaken in assuming the show doesn't want her back.

“She’ll be fine. She’ll be on the show,” Cowell told Extra yesterday, responding to Abdul's manager's complaints. “I don’t get a lot of say. I’ve just made it clear that I want Paula on the show."

A Great Judge

Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest expressed a similar sentiment.

“I think, as far as I know, you’ll see everybody back. I hope so.”

As for the most recent batch of American Idol finalists, they recently brought the Staples Center down with a crowd-pleasing show in Los Angeles.

Game on, Robert Pattinson.

Game. On.

Doing Promotion

In a just-released promotional photo for New Moon, Taylor Lautner poses with his shirt off and a sultry expression on his face.

This picture follows closely on the (hot!!!) heels of a still image from the movie, in which Lautner's Jacob comes ever-so-close to making out with Kristen Stewart's Bella.

Will Pattinson respond to the following pic, along with Lautner's attempt to steal his girl, with a topless shot of himself? Millions of women around the world sure hope so.

So, does this photograph of Lautner sway your mind? Do you think he's hotter than Pattinson? Let us know below.

Who would you rather sleep with?

While fans continue to buzz over the most recently-released photo from New Moon - which posits a lonely Bella next to an amorous Jacob - director Chris Weitz is opening up about the movie.

In a wide-ranging interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Weitz dishes on the film's computer-generated graphics, his favorite scene and more.

Enjoy these excerpts from the discussion:

On implementing special effects: "We are still in the late phases of what Edward looks like when he's hit by sunlight, what the vampires look like when they're hit with sunlight, the diamond effect, and also the hallucinatory effect that Bella has when she hears Edward's voice and she imagines him there."

Chris Weitz directs Kristen Stewart in this scene from New Moon.

On realism of the Volturi: "They're not levitating above the ground, they're not surrounded by mystical auras, they are creatures who actually exist and they're very specific, they're very stylish, they're very elegant, they're very dangerous. Essentially, it's really faithful to the book."

On his favorite scene in the movie: "When Bella goes to try to stop Edward from killing himself. We had a thousand extras in this medieval town square in a hill town in Tuscany, in the most beautiful country on earth, and it was such an extraordinary opportunity to get to work there."

On directing Breaking Dawn: "I think it's really charming that, not having seen New Moon, people would be enthusiastic about me wanting to do Breaking Dawn. I think the proof is in the pudding, and they should see New Moon before they decide if they want me to do anything else to do with their series. But I would hope to earn that kind of rumor."
