If Hollywood is anything like high school — and, let’s be honest, it’s exactly like high school — then Robert Pattinson, 24, and Kristen Stewart, 20, have prom king and queen in the bag. The superstar couple is currently filming the final two installments of their insanely popular vampire movie series, the Twilight saga, and teenage girls all over the planet are obsessing over how the movie will depict their characters’ first night in bed together. (If you haven’t had “the talk” with your kids, you might want to. Quickly.) Rob recently described making love to Kristen on camera as “awkward,” and I’m sure it was incredibly difficult having to spend all day in bed with his girlfriend. But you can relate; don’t you just hate going to work sometimes?
Pop sensation Justin Bieber is also working himself to the bone. Between his upcoming 3-D movie, a seemingly endless tour schedule, and his efforts to help Peta shut down puppy mills, the Biebs was seriously in need of a vacation to kick of 2011. And we’ve recently learned that he did what any normal 16-year-old boy would do: He whisked his girlfriend, 18-year-old Disney Channel starlet Selena Gomez, to a $2,300-a-night mansion off the coast of St. Lucia. I assume he got her home by curfew.
But not everyone in young Hollywood is taking it easy. Jersey Shore star-turned-author Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 23, released her first novel, A Shore Thing, last week — and it’s already on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list! Ironically, this happened the same week MTV aired the episode of Jersey Shore in which Snooki is arrested for public drunkenness. For her sake, we’ll just pretend those two things cancel each other out.
Moving onto more positive role models, 21-year-old Disney rock star Joe Jonas earned his spot on the Best Boyfriends list this week by surprising his girlfriend, 24-year-old Ashley Greene, with a puppy! Not only is Ashley’s new adorable bulldog a perfect match for Joe’s own bulldog, Winston, but it’s also just nice to see someone in Hollywood with a dog that doesn’t fit in a purse.
Meanwhile, Joe’s ex-girlfriend, country music star Taylor Swift, is trying things out with an older guy. Taylor, 21, and Jake Gyllenhaal, 29, have been spotted all over Brooklyn, Los Angeles and, most recently at Taylor’s apartment in Nashville. Don’t expect Taylor and Jake to last forever, though. If not for her series of break-ups with high-profile celebrities, Taylor wouldn’t have any material for her next album!
And bringing up the rear this week are Hollywood’s most sensationalized siblings, the Kardashians. Kim, 30, Khloé, 26, and Kourtney, 31, have literally built an empire on being beautiful, busty and bananas — and their new show, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, premieres this Sunday on E! What you won’t see on the show, however, is Kim’s budding romance with 25-year-old New Jersey Nets power forward Kris Humphries. (The Kardashians are notorious good luck charms, FYI, so remember that the next time you make a fantasy draft pick.)
