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.

In a new, wide-ranging interview with Great Britain's The Daily Mail, Miley Cyrus touches on a number of topics.

Among them: the difficulty of growing up famous, rich and with a legion of fans around the world; her hatred for celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton; and her plans to stay pure until marriage.

Miley Down Under

Note to Justin Gaston: if you wanna look down and see this look on Miley Cyrus, put a ring on her finger.

Here are excerpts from the article:

On being young and famous: "It's hard growing up in the spotlight and I'm changing. I can't be the 12-year-old who just moved to LA for ever. I'm having a great time doing what I do, but I'm also going to stumble and fall."

On Perez Hilton: "That's just a mean person. I don't know how old he is, but taking it out on me is a little strange. It's like going back to high school. I get to travel and go to London and Paris, while this person sits by the computer writing mean things about me. I'd rather be the one travelling."

On sex: "I want to keep my virginity until I marry and then follow the lead of Jessica Simpson, another singer that made this claim, starred on a reality show, got divorced and has slept with as many men as possible since. I was brought up in a Christian family."

Despite comments earlier this week that made it seem like she had an issue with Melissa Rycroft, Jewel wants to make one thing clear:

She hates a certain rule on Dancing with the Stars, not the lovely, former cheerleading brunette.

On Thursday, Jewel posted on husband Ty Murray's MySpace blog that she has an issue with the DWTS rule that says an injured contestant isn't instantly disqualified; but rather judged on his/her rehearsal footage.

"I like Melissa and think she's gifted (and a real Texas sweetheart), and I adore Steve-O," Jewel wrote yesterday, citing the two competitors that have benefited from this edict on season eight. "My comment had nothing to do with either of them. My comment was on a sports website about a rule I have never seen in any type of competition before."

Jewel added: "Name another sport where if you can’t compete, they use your score from practice. Can you imagine an Olympic diver who can’t compete for any reason, and so they let them use their practice dives from that day? Or a chess match, for that matter.

"This isn't a catty girl versus girl thing [the media] are trying to make it into. Neither I nor Melissa are like that."

Denise Richards has ruined an American classic.

And, for once, we aren't referring to Charlie Sheen!

Richards has proven that there's one thing she does worse than act: sing.

As part of the Chicago Cubs' tradition that asks a famous person (any famous person, apparently) to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the Seventh Inning Stretch at Wrigley Field, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant belted out a horrific version of the baseball anthem.

Note how she continually looks down at the words, as she "sings."

Seriously, Denise. Just stick to exploiting your kids for fame and money.

The world may have just discovered Susan Boyle last month.

But those that attended a local talent show in Scotland - in 1984 - have known about this singer's vocal chops for the last 25 years.

Some dude named Gerry McGuinness, who was in the audience that night at Motherwell Football Club's social club, has uncovered a tape of the Britain's Got Talent contestant singing "The Way We Were."

"She was so shy, but she was also very attractive back then. She turned a few heads when she came in," he said. "It's great she is finally getting some recognition."

McGuinness added that Boyle actually did not win the contest that year. Will the same upset take place on Britain's Got Talent?

Yes, if Hollie Steel has her way!

Jon Gosselin stands accused of cheating on his grating wife, Kate.

But that's not the case says Pat Fagan, a man that ought to know pretty well: he was the bouncer at Legends Lounge during the night when Jon was spotted with another woman.

Back in Hawaii

"They seemed like casual friends," Fagan told People. "There was no romantic anything. They weren't gazing into each other eyes."

Jon Gosselin has eight adorable reasons - and one annoying reason - to need a break once and awhile.

Then there's this testimony from Dustin Sands, a family friend that has known Gosselin for nearly two decades. He says that his pal just needs the occasional downtime from raising eight kids, while also having his every move chronicled on TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8.

"The guy just needs to be cut some slack once in while when he wants to relax a bit," said Sands.

On Wednesday, Gosselin apologized for showing poor judgment, insisting that staying out so late may have been disrespectful to his family, but that he's a loyal, dedicated husband and father.

With Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey and others putting on such stellar eighth season performances on American Idol, the presence of new judge Kara DioGuardi has almost gone unnoticed.

In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine, the songwriter even admits this may be her only experience on the show.

“I’m only here for one season,” DioGuardi said. “That’s what we’ve discussed. So we’ll see what happens.”

Given the choice, Kara would stick around for awhile on Idol.

“My life has become extremely exciting and I am so excited for this opportunity. I feel grateful to America that they let me grow and they let me find my groove on the show and that they were patient. And hopefully I haven’t disappointed them. It’s been a scary experience at times.”

Do you wanna see DioGuardi as a judge beyond this season?

When it comes to our favorite celebrity quotes of the year, it will be hard pressed for anyone to overcome Lil Wayne's take on safe sex.

But washed-up, plastic actress Lisa Rinna is giving it a try!

Lisa Rinna Book

Earlier this week, when asked about swine flu by Entertainment Tonight, Rinna replied:

"I believe we all, except for myself, had the swine flu at our house. How do you know it's the swine flu? I don't know but we had all the symptoms. We had it before it came out. I'm serious. I'm dead serious. We had it at our house, I believe, and everyone is fine."

In other words: a couple members of Rinna's family had a high temperature a few weeks ago.

But, hey, when you haven't starred on a show in years, and when you look like this naked, you'll use any incident you can find to grab headlines.

Brittny Gastineau has a message for celebrity gossip lovers:

Prepare for the cutest babies in the history of the world!

All Three Sisters

The socialite, who starred in E!'s Gastineau Girls, told Us Weekly that good friend Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Reggie Bush have wedding bells and dirty diapers in their future.

"I think Kim and Reggie are definitely going to get married and have babies," Gastineau said at a club opening yesterday. "They’re going to have the cutest babies ever. They really are."

Ouch, Honor Marie. Pretend you didn't hear that.

So, which side of the couple will these adorable children look like? Gastineau said it won't matter.

"They both have very similar smiles. Their kid is going to have a million-dollar smile."

Hmmm, only one million dollars?!? Based on the financial background of Brittny's family, sounds like she's actually insulting Kim's future baby with that comment.

Like a Lauren Conrad sex tape, we should have known that Taylena was too good to be true.

According to Wizards of Waverly Place star Jennifer Stone, talk of a Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez relationship was premature (again, like many on our staff would have been had they watched the aforementioned sex tape.)

"Just because they're hanging out together doesn't mean they're dating, you know," Stone, reasonably, said to E! News about the rumor. "A lot of girls have guy friends."

Well, yeah. But that's not nearly as fun.

Justin and Selena Family Portrait

Stone added that she hasn't even met Lautner, implying that this would have taken place if he were Selena's new man.

"I'm a big Twilight fan though," the actress said. "I'm a big Robert Pattinson fan, which I know if I met Taylor, he would not be a fan of me not saying he's my favorite, but I really do love Rob."

Thanks for sharing, Jennifer!

Those that defend Carrie Prejean continually say she's allowed to state her opinion, and she shouldn't have been punished at the Miss USA Pageant for doing so. We agree.

However, as she continues to milk her newfound fame, it would be nice if Prejean actually had an opinion!

If you're gonan become a spokesperson for a cause, aren't you under an obligation to speak intelligently on that cause, and not just utter the same few words over and over?

Instead, the fake-boobed beauty queen just spouts the same tired line about "protecting traditional marriage," as if gays getting hitched was somehow a direct threat against heterosexual nuptials; and/or as if men and women were trying to protect traditional marriage themselves (the current divorce rate in America: 48%!).

During an interview with Greta Van Susteren of Fox News last night, Prejean literally could not provide an answer to a pair of questions directly related to the issue of gay marriage: civil unions and adoption.

Look at me! I can recite the same five words again and again: I just support traditional marriage!

Seriously, gay marriage haters and Bible thumpers, is this the woman you want representing your views?

Greta Van Susteren : What is your thought on civil unions?
Carrie Prejean: My thought on civil unions? You know what, Greta? I don't have the answers to everything. I'm not running for political office. I don't have the answers to everything, you know, in the world out there. But I think that there should be rights for people, you know, especially in California. I think that people that are homosexual should have some rights, you know, hospital rights, and things like that.

But I would like to be more educated on that, so when I do have a better answer for you, I will get back to you on that one.

But so far I just support traditional marriage, and that's my main focus.

Greta Van Susteren: What about adoption?
Carrie Prejean: Greta, I am focusing on marriage right now, not adoption, not civil unions, just traditional marriage, and I'm going to do whatever it takes to promote that.

Seemingly, "whatever it takes" simply involves smiling for the camera and uttering the same few words over and over, without any reasonable explanation behind her views.

One more thing: during the Miss California Pageant, Prejean referred to the Special Olympics as a key part of her platform.

Why has she not uttered a word in public about this event since? It can't be because that isn't as controversial - and, therefore, as attention-grabbing - an issue as gay marriage, can it?!?
