X17Online reports Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Taylor Lautner is 17! That makes it statutory rape under California law if it's true.
California penal code: 261.5. (a) Unlawful sexual intercourse is an act of sexual
intercourse accomplished with a person who is not the spouse of the
perpetrator, if the person is a minor.
For the purposes of this section, a "minor" is a person
under the age of 18 years and an "adult" is a person
who is at least 18 years of age.
This from AgeOfConsent.com:
WHY SO MUCH ATTENTION TO STATUTORY RAPE?
California has the highest teen birth rate in the U.S.
Every 8 minutes, a teenager in California has a baby.
3 of 4 births to High School girls are fathered by adults.
Men over 25 account for twice as many teen births as
boys under 18 years old.
The Average Age difference between the teen victim and the adult
defendant in cases filed by the District Attorney is 7years 9months.
Men over 20 are responsible for 5 times as many births among
junior high school girls.
In California almost 70% of teen births are fathered by adult men.
On an average California day 76 teenage girls, 17 & younger,
will give birth.
In Stanislaus County over 6% of teenage girls will give birth
in any given year.
In 1993 1,572 births in California were to mothers 14 years or younger.
The rate of sexually transmitted disease among teenage girls is
twice that of teenage boys.
This all translates into a tremendous drain in our welfare
and medical resources statewide.
AFDC and Medi-Cal costs for 1 teen pregnancy, birth and
1st year support is $10,000.
Total costs for teen births to those 17 and younger
in 1993 for California were $140 million.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
Spread the word that all reports of statutory rape are being
evaluated and in appropriate cases charges are being filed.
You can report any knowledge of Statutory Rape to local
Law Enforcement or to the District
Attorney's Statutory Rape Vertical Prosecution Unit.

My experience was seven calls to Disney. I got the Florida theme park, I got the Disney Anaheim theme park. When I asked for Hollywood Records, the operator transferred me to some guy in "records management," which maintains the files for Disney.
Finally got hold of Matt Brant, who I spoke to Nov. 13, and he said they were passing on publicity. Good luck, Selena. Shows why no Disney artists were in Billboard's Hot 100 for the decade and all the aspiring stars I speak with at conferences and conventions say they want to avoid Disney like the plague. I didn't understand until now.
Tween music not in decade top 20
Disney tops out at #44
Taylor Swift at #53 & 56
Where's Miley Cyrus?
Tween music didn't show up until Avril Lavigne hit #21 with Let Go. P!nk hit #38 with M!ssundazstood.
Disney didn't make the chart until #44 with, drum roll please, High School Musical - how fitting.
Taylor Swift, who's rise to power only really came in the last year, was #53 and #56 with Fearless. She beat the original Tween queen Hilary Duff who came in at #80 with Metamorphosis. Britney Spears didn't crack until #81 with ...Baby One More Time.
Where's Miley? The first Hannah Montana soundtrack came in at #84 (Volume 2 at #112). Way behind Gretchen Wilson who came in #57 with Here for the Party. Yet Cyrus' Breakout didn't even chart - even Joe did, but not Cyrus, unless I missed it. Also, may have missed it, but Hannah Montana nor Cyrus never charted on the hot singles (100) of the Aughts. I'm sure both Miley & Hilary are crying all the way to the bank about not being in decades Hot 100. Colbie Caillat made it!

Nick Jonas & Administration
Highest debut on Hot 100
Billboard charts #73
More proof end of Tween music
Here's some advice for Nick. Follow Eric Burdon, Greg Allman and others, like Prince, who had a host of backing bands. You've delved into country - how about a Willie Nelson & sort of thing. Nick Jonas & Taylor Swift, Nick Jonas & Gloriana. Okay, I'm done; that's the extent of knowledge of country stars unless you throw in Crystal Gale, Billy Ray Cyrus or Asleep at the Wheel.
Who I am reached #73 - and it was the highest debut on the Hot 100. Pitiful. End of Tween music.

Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, The Pizza Girl from the Jonas Brothers TV show. Who hasn't this guy been with?
You played in bars, you play guitar
And I'm invisible and everyone knows who you are
And you'll never see, you sing me to sleep
Every night from the radio
So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I can't take my eyes off of you
I'm no one special, just another wide-eyed girl
Who's desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall
Sweet, sweet superstar

Last chance to see Jonas Brothers in 2009
Possibly ever with Nick
What happens in San Juan
Stays in San Juan
The same day Selena Gomez plays Tempe, Arizona, and yes, her PR team has ignored all requests from this blog, you can catch the final 2009 show of the Jonas Brothers tour in San Juan, P.R. Maybe the last show ever with Nick.
While you're at it, enjoy a Major League Beisbol (Baseball) game, watching your favorite U.S. diamond stars.
On Dec. 13, JBs play the Coliseo, or Coliseum, of San Juan. Playoffs for the Puerto Rican league is Dec. 11.
The JBs love sports. Maybe they'll be smart enough to play in a MLB game while in Puerto Rico. Say hi to my friends Mario & Pieto, Joe, Kevin & Nick. Went to college with Mario.

Originally released in 2007, it was a collectors item. Target smartly re-issued it this year due to Swift stealing Miley Cyrus' capability to turn everything she touches into gold. I know, Miley who?
My daughter came up with Nick Jonas' answer to Kevin and Joe when they ask about the future of the Jonas Brothers band - We're not Hanson. Perfect answer if Nick thinks about it!
If Joe and Kevin want a Jonas Brothers band, Frankie better learn how to play piano, guitar and drums.

Jonas has recruited members of Prince's former band. He will continue to appear in ABC's Jonas Brother TV show, plus J.O.N.A.S., which is scheduled to appear sometime in 2010. He will also tour in the spring with The Administration - not the Jonas Brothers.
A CD by the same name as the single is due out Feb. 2, songs reportedly include a remake of Jonas Brothers Tonight. Other tentative titles include, The Rose Garden, Olive & An Arrow, Conspiracy Theory and State of Emergency.

She may be 17 today but
You can get into Miley Cyrus pants Friday
As yesterday as Hilary Duff
Imagine the joy and sounds as your child opens her Christmas present and says, Miley Cyrus. You're kidding. She's as yesterday as Hilary Duff. Couldn't you find any Kristin Stewart or Taylor Swift?

First, let’s give Taylor Swift the favorite female country artist right now. Let’s give Michael Jackson pop/rock favorite album. Doubt if Swift is a match for death.
Beyonce will walk with favorite female soul/r&b artists.
Unlike other music prognosticators, I don’t believe Michael Jackson will triumph in the artist of the year. Believe it will go to Swift, due to the money factor, but Lady GaGa has a chance due to popularity.
6:41 p.m. - Taylor Swift beats Lady GaGa best female pop/rock. That was a given, as is country female
7:15 - Beyonce best female soul/R&B, what did I tell you?
8:12 In your face - best female country - Swift!
8:53 - If you're counting, 4 out of 4 Swift best artist while Jackson gets album.
