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.

New York is nicknamed the "city that never sleeps."

This weekend, however, it was the setting for a couple that often sleeps... together!

Witty segues aside, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart celebrated the incredible opening of New Moon by living it up for a few days in the Big Apple.

On Thursday evening, the couple hung out at the Soho House and "had a good time," a helpful witness told People. From there, Robsten was spotted making out (!!!!) at Avenue, where they also shared a table with Joan Jett.

The following night, Rob and Kristen totally broke curfew: They stayed out until 3 a.m. at the Upper West Side's Dive Bar.

Finally, on the Lord's Day, the pair dined at Megu in Tribeca. A creepy insider relayed each star's actual meal, as Pattinson dined on Kobe beef skewers and asparagus, while Stewart enjoyed a sashimi platter and the king crab.

"They were with two friends and looked very cozy," said the source. "Both were having a great time."

Yeeeaaahhh they were!

New Moon has been out for less than a week, but it's historic box office haul raises at least one question:

Will it be topped by Eclipse?

Fans won't need to wait long for the third Twilight Saga film to hit theaters, as it's scheduled for a June 30, 2010 premiere. In fact, Summit Entertainment just released the first official Eclipse poster:

The Eclipse poster: Love it or hate it?

While most of the New Moon cast will return for the third movie - including mainstays Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner - one shake-up has already created buzz around the flick.

In July, Rachelle Lefevre, was replaced as Victoria by Bryce Dallas Howard. The character actually plays a critical role in the third story, as she gathers together an army of newborn vampires.

We won't give anything else away about Eclipse. Not yet, at least. There will be plenty of time for that movie's hype throughout the winter and spring of 2010 on The Hollywood Gossip.

Hours after shocking the music world with his raunchy American Music Awards performance, Adam Lambert was anything but apologetic.

"You know honestly, if I offended some people... it's apples and oranges. I'm not an artist that does things for every single person," he told Access Hollywood. "I believe in artistic freedom and expression, I believe in honoring the lyrics of a song, and those lyrics aren't really for everybody, either."

New Jersey Performance

During his rendition of "For Your Entertainment," Adam kissed another guy, shoved a dude's face into his crotch and dragged a scantily-clad woman around by her leg. The first two acts were edited out when the show aired on the West Coast.

Lambert considers this an act of "discrimination."

"There's a big double standard, female pop artists have been doing things provocative like that for years, and the fact that I'm a male, and I'll be edited and discriminated against could be a problem," he explained.

The man makes a good point: when Britney Spears and Madonna kissed on stage at the 2003 Video Music Awards, the act was replayed for days on end. No affiliated dared to censor it.

But what do you think the reaction would be if Lambert made out with Kris Allen during a concert?

"People are scared and it's really sad, I just wish people could open their minds up and enjoy things, it's all for a laugh, it's really not that big of a deal," Lambert said of his sexuality and his provocative acts.

We agree. Did Adam really do anything on stage that Prince, Madonna, Britney or Lady Gaga haven't done before? The only difference: he's gay. America has to get over that. After all, as Lambert shouted many times last night:

He's only here "For Your Entertainment."

The ninth season of Dancing with the Stars is limping toward a finish line.

Months after the largest, most random field of contestants in show history was announced, the competition has been whittled down to three: Mya, Donny Osmond, and Kelly Osbourne.

The trio will perform a series of routines this evening and the winner will be announced tomorrow night. Let's take a look at each celebrity's odds of taking home the title:

Mya: 2-1. Easily the most talented, consistent performer of the season. Attractive, jovial, flexible. They should have canceled the series weeks ago and handed Mya the trophy.

Donny: 5-1. Way too cheesy for our taste. He also takes the competition far too seriously. Someone has to tell Mr. Osmond that DWTS is where celebs go once there's no shot at mainstream stardom any longer.

Kelly: 10-1. She has no business being here. Throughout the season, Joanna Krupa was more impressive and much better looking. Fans likely voted Kelly in because they felt about her dad being mentally unstable.

Who do you think should win this season of Dancing with the Stars?

Guess THG birthday wishes weren't enough for Miley Cyrus.

The singer turns 17 today, but was feted last week with a surprise party thrown by mother Tish.

As reported by People, Miley was surrounded by friends, family and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth for the occasion, celebrating with a 1980s-themed bash at New York City's Canal Room.

"The whole thing was a surprise," said an insider, who detailed performances at the shindig by Broadway's Rock of Ages cast, along with a custom-designed cake created by Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's Cake Boss.

Very Dressed Up

Two years ago, Miley enjoyed another ‘80s-themed party in Nashville. Said her mom at the time:

"She loves the ‘80s. The fashion, the big hair– she thinks it's so funky."

That explains why Cyrus is appearing in the Sex and the City sequel. As previously reported, that movie will flash back to the 1980s for a couple scenes.

By now, most fans have heard all about Adam Lambert's controversial, sex-themed performance at the 2009 American Music Awards.

The singer grinded up against back-up dancers, pushed one's head down to his crotch and played tonsil hockey with a band member.

It was a shocking rendition of "For Your Entertainment," even for those of us accustomed to Lambert's flamboyant, over-the-top American Idol auditions. These photos explains why:

Simulated Sex
  • AMA Smooch
  • Controversial Performance
  • Shocking Lambert
  • Silver Suited

The performance was clearly meant to create buzz for the singer, whose debut album goes on sale today. As loyal Lambert followers, however, we wished he'd gone in the opposite direction.

For Adam, playing up his sexuality in such a showy manner is akin to Sarah Palin preaching about abstinence. Both strategies just play to each celebrity's base.

To Lambert's credit, he's always done his own thing. Last night's behavior was merely an extension to his American Idol acts, during the show's run this spring and its concerts this summer.

But if the singer's goal is to attract new fans and to move as many copies of his CD as possible, the performance was a failure. It went for shock value over vocal talent, the latter of which Lambert possesses in spades. He's not a gay Britney Spears. Adam can really sing.

Unfortunately, he wasted an opportunity to prove this to a new, national audience.

The talk today is all about Lambert's antics, not his voice. That's too bad because, as Adam himself said in an insightful interview last week, the man has a lot to offer America beyond his sexual preference and outlandish stage presence.

Do you agree with this critique? What did you think of Lambert's performance?

The Miss California USA pageant came and went with nary a gay marriage controversy last night.

However, the winner of the 2010 crown actually does have a celebrity gossip connection: Nicole Johnson was romantically linked to Michael Phelps in October 2008.

Now, the brunette beauty from Ventura County can make news on her own. She follows Carrie Prejean as the state's title-holder, though that attention-starved author was eventually stripped of the crown.

“I think it was my presentation,” Johnson said, when asked why she won. “I was very confident on the stage, and I stood out in a red gown. I think maybe that was it.”

After the ceremony, Nicole added that she loved gay people and has never starred in a sex tape.

Last year, at the Miss USA pageant, Perez Hilton asked Prejean for her views on gay marriage. Last night, CSI's Hill Harper inquired about California's challenges as a state. Replied Johnson, profoundly:

“Focusing on what we truly believe in. Sometimes we are very divided, and I feel if we can unite and be one state and focus our beliefs in one thing, I think we can succeed and be a very dominant state.”

Seriously, folks, how stupid are beauty pageants?!? Does anything, The Bachelor included, set the women's movement back any further?

Taylor Swift was the big winner at last night's American Music Awards. No surprise there.

But viewers and audience members were shocked when Adam Lambert closed the show with a controversial performance that's been lighting up Twitter accounts and gossip blogs all night long.

Following songs by Janet Jackson, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Lady Gaga, Lambert took to the stage in a silver suit.

He proceeded to gyrate against back-up singers and kiss a male band member. Throw in some S&M imagery and a bit of simulated sex and you have a buzzed-about performance that puts Lambert directly in the spotlight just as his debut album hits stores today.

Watch the rendition below and let us know your thoughts on it...

What do you think of Lambert's performance?

In case you haven't heard, Robert Pattinson is starring in a little movie called New Moon.

He's also scheduled to play a key role in Eclipse, the third film in the Twilight Saga, due out on June 30, 2010.

In between these blockbusters, however, the British actor will expand his resume and appear in Remember Me. The flick co-stars Emile de Ravin, with whom Robert was spotted making out a few months ago.

Was this kissing scene simply in the script? Or were the rumors of off-screen chemistry between this pair valid? Watch the official trailer below and decide for yourself:

Remember Me comes out on March 12. Will you go see it?
