Taylor Swift tops Forbes' 'Highest-Paid Celebs Under 30' list

Want to feel like an underachiever?

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the richest entertainers under 30. And it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift wins something yet again, raking in over $57 million from May 2011 to May 2012. The 22-year-old had the Speak Now world tour during that time, which Forbes said brought in a cool $1 million a night.

Last year’s $90 million Monster winner Lady Gaga came in fourth this year, earning $52 million. Forbes attributes the drop to the fact that she didn’t tour during the time frame, and notes that she’s currently selling out shows in Eastern Europe and they expect a jump next year. (Although, $52 million is not exactly a failure.) READ FULL STORY

Pat Robertson turns attention to 'Twilight,' calls the franchise 'demonic' -- VIDEO

He’s baaaaaaack. After haranguing Saturday Night Live for their Tim Tebow lampoon, Pat Robertson has joined the anti-Twilight bandwagon. The 81-year-old aspiring hipster and fundamentalist minister deemed Stephenie Meyer’s sparklevamp franchise “evil” in a recent segment on his TV show, the 700 Club.

Responding a a viewer question about whether the series promotes witchcraft, Robertson recounted a story of demon possession told to him by a friend. According to Robertson, the demon in question “had permission” to possess a young girl because she had been enticed by the timeless love story of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. “It opened the door to demonic power. Yes, I think those vampire movies are evil,” said Robertson. “There are no vampires. The whole thing is demonic.” See more of Robertson’s thoughts on Twilight below. READ FULL STORY

Poll: Which young celebrity would you like to see on Broadway?

Broadway has never been a stranger to hosting young celebrities, but more often than not, it’s the girls who take the stage — Abigail Breslin, Claire Danes, Diana DeGarmo, Scarlett Johansson. (We really covered the spectrum with that list.) Given all the recent hubbub about How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (which welcomed Nick Jonas this week), it’s nice to remember that Hollywood’s young leading men are also shipping out and hitting the Great White Way.

For starters, Jonas follows in the footsteps of Daniel Radcliffe and Darren Criss, who both starred in the revival of How to Succeed. Hunter Parrish (Weeds) has been headlining as Jesus in the angsty revival of Godspell. READ FULL STORY

Robert Pattinson's new buzzed 'do: Love it? Hate it?

Just when the tween world had started to recover from the shock and “awww” when Justin Bieber chopped his famous windswept locks, Robert Pattinson started the mourning process all over again when he debuted his newly buzzed dome at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. (If Taylor Swift decides to get rid of her bangs, the tween world as we know it may just collapse in on itself.) READ FULL STORY

Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway are Hollywood's 'Best Actors for the Buck'

According to a study by Forbes calculating return-on-investment numbers (don’t fall asleep!) for the 40 highest-paid actors, Twilight star Kristen Stewart is Hollywood’s Best Actor for the Buck. Every time Kristen Stewart gets a dollar, her films get an average $55.83, an angel gets its wings, and a random theatergoer gets a seizure.

Look at her in that picture. Is she pissed off, or merely awake? I can never tell. (Actually, the longer I stare, the more I think this could be the most jazzed I’ve seen her.)

Also in the Top 5: Vampire Robert Pattinson, Alice in Wonderland‘s Anne Hathaway, Transformers‘ Shia LaBeouf, and Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe. This is what happens when you star in movies that make tons of cash and also movies that are low-budge. Hooray! Now they can all demand more money.

The full list of bucking broncos is here.

Is it just me or does this study have sort of a “Look at all these suckers!” vibe to it? Poor rich people. Related: I’m so glad I thought better of my original headline for this post, “Kristen Stewart is cheap and easy.” That’s not nice.

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part I': A hater's guide

twilight-eclipse-hater

The last couple of weeks have been worrying ones for someone who has been tasked with writing a “Hater’s Guide” to each Twilight movie but who remains open to the possibility that one day the vampire franchise might actually produce a decent film. After all, if an infinite number of monkeys given an infinite amount of time can write the works of Shakespeare, then it would surely take just one chimpanzee a few weeks to write a film better than, say, 2008’s thunderingly dull series opener Twilight or 2009’s  The Twilight Saga: New Moon which, to the best of my recollection, consists entirely of Kristen Stewart’s heroine Bella looking out the window and watching the seasons change. In real time. READ FULL STORY

'Breaking Dawn' midnight screening: Blood, sweat, and tears (and, of course, a movie)

Some said they arrived at 5 p.m., a full seven hours before they could hand over their ticket — purchased two weeks ago — to get into last night’s sold-out midnight screening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1. Or the sold-out 12:06 a.m. screening…or the sold-out 12:11 a.m. screening…or the sold-out 12:16 a.m. screening. The United Artists Kaufman Astoria theater in New York City, like so many other theaters around the country, attempted to accommodate Twi-hard demand with a multitude of options slotted well past midnight. (A tip of the hat to any movie theater employee that works on nights like these. It cannot be easy.)

As a newbie to the Twilight midnight showing experience (and oh, is it an experience), I arrived at 10:30 p.m. It was pretty obvious I had zero chance at getting a good seat — the lobby and theater area (pictured) were packed to the brim with (mostly) girls in their late teens and early 20s (though I spotted a few reluctant boyfriends here and there), all out far past reasonable bedtimes and curfews.
