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.
Simon Cowell on Paula Abdul: I Almost Tapped That

Simon Cowell on Paula Abdul: I Almost Tapped That

It wasn't all an act, Simon Cowell told Barbara Walters on her Most Fascinating People of 2011 special last night. He truly didn't like Paula Abdul when the two first worked together.

"The truth was on the first two seasons, we couldn't' travel on the same plane together," Cowell said during his ABC interview. "We really disliked each other that much."

Justin Bieber Pulled Over for Driving Mishap... Again!

Justin Bieber Pulled Over for Driving Mishap... Again!

Note Justin Bieber: maybe spend a little less time on your hair and a little more time on your driving.

For the second time in a couple months, the singer got pulled over by a police officer yesterday. In October, it was for actually cutting off a cop. This time, it was for making an illegal left turn. He didn't get a ticket on either occasion.

Barbara Walters Grills Kim Kardashian on Sex Tape, Airs "Numerous Angles" of Video

Steve Jobs might have been the Most Fascinating Person of 2011, according to Barbara Walters on her ABC special last night, but the Kardashians were most definitely the subject of this journalist's most fascinating interview.

At one point, Walters aired a video that gave a bit of background on Kim and her family, focusing for awhile on the 2007 sex tape she starred in with Ray J. A long while. We counted. For some reason, the network aired 24 seconds worth of footage from this tape.

Marcus Canty: Horrific? Grotesque? A Joke?

Marcus Canty: Horrific? Grotesque? A Joke?

Simon Cowell is not a fan of Marcus Canty. That was made clear early in the week when The X Factor judge dismissed any notion that Canty had a shot at winning this year's $5 million grand prize.

But Simon drove his negative points home even further last night, responding to Canty's take on "Careless Whisper" with the harshest criticism leveled at a contestant this season.

Josh Krajcik: Attacking Souls, Singing Beautiful Prayers

Josh Krajcik: Attacking Souls, Singing Beautiful Prayers

Josh Krajcik brought Paula Abdul to tears on The X Factor last night. Granted, this is about as difficult as getting Lindsay Lohan to have a drink. But still.

The heartfelt crooner belted out a couple of songs on the semifinals, once again proving his versatility via a piano-based version of "Hallelujah" and a livelier version of "Come Together."

Chris Rene Transcends the Universe on X Factor Semifinal

The judges are not ready to crown Melanie Amaro X Factor champion just yet.

Following one of Chris Rene's two performances last night, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul jokingly argued about whether or not he looks like $1 million on stage... or $5 million the grand prize that will be awarded to next week's winner.

Melanie Amaro on The X Factor: A Hero Who Feels Good!

It's never easy being the favorite. Just ask the Miami Heat or the Boston Red Sox.

But Melanie Amaro has been considered The X Factor front-runner since her very first audition, never faltering under the pressure, giving stellar performance after stellar performance every week on Fox. That didn't change last night.
