For the second time since he allegedly shot 19 people, killing six, Jared Lee Loughner appeared inside a courtroom today. He pleaded not guilty to charges that he tried to kill Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and two of her aides.

At the moment, the 22-year old faces federal charges of trying to assassinate Giffords and this pair of government officials. He will later face state charges that center on the other victims.

Loughner entered a Phoenix courthouse wearing an orange jumpsuit and glasses. His hair has grown out slightly since his sinister mug shot was snapped two weeks ago.

During the hearing, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns asked Loughner's attorney, Judy Clarke - who has represented such clients as Ted Kaczynski and Olympic bomber Eric Rudolphwhether - if there was any question about her client's ability to understand the case against him.

"We are not raising any issues at this time," Clarke said.

Just a few hours ago, THG debated whether Kim Kardashian should give advice on teen pregnancy, in light of her recent remarks on MTV's Teen Mom.

This celebrity gossip writer argued that Kim's comments were uncalled for, given the reasons behind her fame, and it was not her place to weigh in.

Farrah Abraham appears to agree.

Still Single

It looks like Kim's Teen Mom tirade may have gotten a bit too preachy for one of its cast members, who responded to K-squared's criticism on Twitter.

Last week, Kim took to her blog to speak out against teen pregnancy and included MTV’s Teen Mom in the missive, saying it fosters a troubling trend.

“It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls,” was one choice Kim excerpt.

“These kids are all over the news, even covers of magazines, and have almost become celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!”

Farrah Abraham takes issue with Kim, to say the least.

Bristol Palin has a new boyfriend.

What his name is and what he looks like, we have no idea. Yet. No idea YET. We know that's the only reason you're here, but chill. Give it a few hours.

Bristol Palin Pre-Plastic Surgery

Asked on KWHL's The Bob & Mark Show if she's really dating the 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker, she said, "Are you guys getting personal with me, really?"

The hosts on the Anchorage-based show pushed her to just admit she has a new boyfriend, helpfully suggesting that she simple confirm this much:

"Yeah, you know what, I'm seeing a guy and he's really great and Tripp loves him and we're having a really good time and we're really good friends."

Bristol Palin laughed and said, "Yeah, we can go with that. I'm thrilled. I love the town that I live in. I love my house. Tripp's happy; he's healthy."

The house is her new five-bedroom abode in Maricopa, Ariz., she recently purchased for $172,000 and for which she "wrote a check," she says.

"It was cool. It made Dancing with the Stars worth it, for sure."

Before the Green Bay Packers line up across the field from the Pittsburgh Steelers for Super Bowl XLV, Christina Aguilera will sing the game's national anthem.

"I have been performing the anthem since I was 7 years old, and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true," the singer said today in a press release. "I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event."

Aguilera is no stranger to singing this song prior to significant sporting match-ups. She did so at Game 7 of the NBA Finals last year, as seen below. Think Christina is a good choice for the Super Bowl?

Elsewhere, The Black Eyes Peas will be the game's halftime act, representing the first time since we all saw Janet Jackson's nipple that a group with a hit single at some point in the last decade has been selected for this honor.

Sofia Black D’Elia stars on the controversial new MTV show Skins.

As Tea, a teenage lesbian, she knows the show is bound to raise eyebrows, but defends her work on it despite the early pull-out of advertisers.

“Ss an actor on the show I’m proud of everything that we’ve done,” Sofia tells Steppin' Out. “We created something that we really care about."

SKIN: Sofia Black D'Elia is comfortable in hers.

"We feel the show has so much heart and potential and can impact so many teens,” Sofia said. “If people are going to focus on a 17-year-old having a sex scene as opposed to the rest of the entire series, there’s nothing else I can really say."

"I think those people are missing out. For parents who are afraid to let their children watch the show, they probably have some serious trust issues with their kids if they think they can be that easily persuaded by a television series."

Ted Williams has checked out of rehab. But this is not as positive of a step as it may sound like for the former panhandler.

Fewer than two weeks after he checked into the Origins Recovery Center in South Texas, TMZ reports that the man who sky-rocketed to fame on the basis of his wonderful voice has left the facility. Against doctor's orders.

Williams had followed the advice of Dr. Phil in mid-January and supposedly come to the realization that he needed assistance with drug and alcohol dependency. This revelation took place just days after he got into a heated exchange with his daughter.

Let's all hope that Williams starts focusing less on fame and more on his health.

Willow Smith may or may not go back in time and revisit a classic character by portraying Annie on the big screen.

But Will Smith's daughter is definitely making it clear in a new song that she's a 21st century girl at heart. In fact, that will be the title of Willow's next single.

"It's a dance record," the 10-year old wrote on Facebook of the tune. "I know you love to dance, don't cha'..."

Well, don't cha?!? Ponder that question and enjoy the following snippet of "21st Century Girl" right here and now. Sounds to us like Willow has another catchy groove on her hands:

THG Asks!

Welcome to THG's new feature, in which two of our celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!

Today, THG Asks: Should Kim Kardashian give advice on teen pregnancy?

YES by Hilton Hater

Let me be clear: by no stretch of any imagination should Kim Kardashian be a role model.

She is famous solely because she made a sex tape, hired a good publicist and is willing to attach her name to any product on the market.

But these facts don't change another fact: she IS a role model. She has close to four million Facebook fans, six million Twitter followers.

For reasons that defy comprehension, people - many of whom are teenage women - care about what Kim says, thinks and does.

So instead of finding another reason to bash her, why not applaud Kim for actually using her pedestal for an important cause? Yes, she got there by having filmed intercourse with Ray J. But she didn't get pregnant as a result, did she?

See. She talks the talk and has walked the walk.


NO by Free Britney 

Look at the photo above. This is who's opining on social issues of our time.

This isn't to say that Kim Kardashian is a bad person, or that she can't have opinions on serious subjects. But she needs to know her role and shut her yap too.

Kim's missive about Teen Mom glorifying pregnancy is laughable. Not because of the MTV show's content, but because of the reasons you know who Kim is.

Kim loves her kurves. Kim endorses QuikTrim! Kim shows kleavage on Twitter! Kim shills for new show! Kim dates half the NFL! Kim endorses bogus kredit kard!

She accuses Teen Mom of making celebrities out of its cast, an odd message from a girl who got famous from a sex tape and flaunts her sexuality on a daily basis.

The ultimate product of the same celebrity-obsessed culture she derides, Kim has milked it for a fortune, has zero credibility and is in no position to judge.

THG Asks you ... should Kim be giving advice? Who won this argument?

So ... Lindsay Lohan is never going clubbing again.

As in forever. Ev. Er. Like for reals. No more of this.

Neutral Colors

According to TMZ, the star is telling people she is "completely over the club scene" and realizes that cutting it out is the best way to avoid temptation.

No more of this, Lindsay vows ... sadly/fortunately.

In other words, no more going with her crew and "just having water." She is serious about remaining sober and believes cold turkey is the way to go.

If you can stop laughing for five seconds, you can also note that, supposedly, she's even ditching friends and colleagues with whom she goes clubbing.

She'll therefore socialize only with her lawyer and Michael Lohan from now on.

Kidding. Possibly. What do you think? Can Lindsay's goal be achieved?

The heart of Bret Michaels is a busy organ.

Last month, it was officially stolen by long-time girlfriend Kristi Gibson, who agreed to marry the reality show champion/rocker.

New Family Man

Now, today, possibly at this very moment, Michael is undergoing surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center to repair a literal hole in his heart. This is the same facility where Bret was treated for a brain hemorrhage in April.

“Bret is looking forward to feeling 100 percent again,” his rep says.

We sure hope so! Send in your best wishes for a speedy recovery to this legend today!

UPDATE: It went well!

"Bret Michaels underwent a successful heart procedure today at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix," Bret's rep says, adding that his client "is currently recuperating at St. Joseph's where he remains for observation in ICU."
