Watch Taylor Swift, Prince William, and Jon Bon Jovi sing 'Livin' on a Prayer' -- VIDEO

Who says celebrities and royals aren’t just like us? They, too, enjoy jamming to ’80s hair-band tunes. Except if you’re Taylor Swift or Prince William, you can sing along with Jon Bon Jovi in person.

At Tuesday’s Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace, Jon Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down version of the Bon Jovi classic “Livin’ on a Prayer,” backed up by the future king of England and Swift, who also performed separately at the event. The first annual gala was in support of Centrepoint, a U.K.-based charity focused on aiding homeless young people.

Watch the country-pop star give her best “Woo!” girl impression and the prince/newbie dad white-man-dance with the Lord Protector of New Jersey here:

Presidents, politicians, journalists, and... Taylor Swift team up for the ultimate Gettysburg Address -- VIDEO

November 19 marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s iconic Gettysburg Address, largely considered one of the most poignant, stirring, and important speeches in American history. And naturally, Civil War buff documentarian Ken Burns wouldn’t let an occasion like this pass by without some sort of commemoration.

Though his 90-minute documentary The Address won’t premiere on PBS until the spring of 2014, Burns has already set up a website called Learn the Address, which encourages “everyone in America to video record themselves reading or reciting the Abraham Lincoln’s famous speech.”

Scads of famous Americans have already taken Burns up on his challenge — including every living president, Lincoln director Steven Spielberg, Bill Gates, and slightly less predictable participants like Alyssa Milano. Which of them best exemplifies Honest Abe’s signature mix of dignity, intelligence, and humanity? Decide for yourself after checking out this handy mashup video. (Hint: It’s not Taylor Swift.)

Fall TV Wish List: Where should 'New Girl' go next?

Here at EW, Fall TV Wish List is a new weekly series in which our TV critics Melissa Maerz and Jeff Jensen weigh in on what they hope the coming season will bring for some of their favorite shows. This week: Fox’s New Girl, which premieres its third season on Sept. 17 at 9 p.m.

WHERE WE LEFT OFF
At the end of season 2, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) got their big, John Hughes-finale moment and made out in a parking lot to the strains of a dramatic love song; Cece (Hannah Simone) dumped Shivrang (Satya Bhabha) at the altar; Elizabeth (Merritt Wever) and Cece forced Schmidt (Max Greenfield) to choose between them; and poor, lonely Taylor Swift ran off with her sweet Shivvy so she’d never have to cry into her journal again.

WHAT WE LOVED ABOUT LAST SEASON
Melissa: So many things. Great physical comedy. One-liners that capture Schmidt’s “bromain” so well, you could screen-print them on a freshly ironed muscle tank top. (The best: “They make shoes for your penis. They’re called pants.”) The very funny “Virgins” episode, which added depth to characters that don’t normally get much screen time (Lamorne Morris’ Winston!) and finally — finally — gave us that elevator-door-jammingly urgent hook-up between Nick and Jess. Also: Nick’s tortured face when that random Asian man cuddles him. Elizabeth embarrassing Schmidt with her favorite kitten t-shirt. And all the other times that this self-aware show acknowledged that even fans of cuteness can only take so much of it before they cringe.
Jeff: What Melissa said. New Girl continued to be a welcome guest in the TV queue, thanks mostly to the comic chemistry and camaraderie of the cast. It feels like the actors can tackle anything the writers throw at them, from zombie Woody Allen impressions and to hallucinatory wrestling matches with invisible trolls. Episodes like “Halloween” and “Virgins” brilliantly synthesized slapstick, cracked-ribald laugh lines (“It was like a wind-sock on a windless day”), and character-driven storytelling. And the Jess-Nick hook-up was well-mounted (so to speak) and almost everything I hoped it would be (sorry). What Max Greenfield was to the show in season 1, Jake Johnson was to the show in season 2: an inspired breakout performance that deserved an Emmy nod. Robbed!

Lady Gaga regains title as 'Forbes' top-earning celeb under 30

Regardless of how beautiful or dirty Lady Gaga is, she is definitely rich. Forbes released the list of “The Top-Earning Celebrities Under 30″ with the pop singer reigning supreme at No. 1. Despite canceling the rest of her Born This Way Ball to undergo hip surgery, the 27-year-old performer earned an estimated $80 million from June 2012 to June 2013.

The list — which does not account for taxes, agent fees, or other related costs — includes mostly female celebrities. Nevertheless, 19-year-old pop star and rabble-rouser Justin Bieber takes second place with an estimated $58 million. Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, and Rihanna round out the top five, earning an estimated $55 million, $46 million, and $43 million, respectively. Jennifer Lawrence is the top-earning actor/actress under 30, raking in an estimated $26 million.

Last year, Swift was crowned as the top-earner on the list with a massive world tour, continued sales on her album Speak Now, two Grammy wins, and a CoverGirl endorsement deal. This year, Gaga took over with her cut-short (but still high-earning) tour, which grossed $168 million through January 2013. She also topped the list in 2011, having brought in an estimated $90 million. With her new album, ARTPOP, to be released this November, will the Queen Monster keep her throne atop next year’s Forbes list?
