Ok i FINALLY found a way of working around this magnet/piratebay/bittorrent fiasco:
First, go to the page of the torrent/magnet you want, then right-click on the URL that says GET THIS TORRENT, then select COPY LINK ADDRESS
Second, go back to BitTorrent, and go to FILE and select ADD TORRENT FROM URL.
Third, PASTE into the box that pops up, and VIOLA!
This worked for me with the only drawback being not being able to select the files to download prior to starting download, if you have this enable as I.
I am Using Chrome and BitTorrent V7.2.1 Build 25138
