If you guys haven’t heard yet, the producers of Gossip Girl are trying to save the show by incorporating a vampire story. Yes that’s right, one lonely character will become a blood sucker and there will be crossover between this show and Vampire Diaries. So basically, Jenny Humphrey will be sent off to boarding school where Edward Cullen will bite her and she’ll slowly turn (then turn others) to the point where humans will be extinct and Ethan Hawk will have to find a synthetic blood source but not before Evan Rachel Wood becomes queen of the vampires and Stephen Dorff makes a triumphant comeback! Where’s Blade when you need him?
How many c-list actors can they get on this show? Who the hell is Kevin Zerger and why is it a big deal that he is on Gossip Girl? They always announce these actors and new characters like they are going to be something big, they never are haha. I’m assuming that this is all a result of my jealousy because he is going to be playing Taylor Momsen’s love interest….damn it!

Not quite sure what Taylor Momsen was planning with this look at a Teen Vogue block party. She performed with Pretty Reckless, but I don’t think anyone really cared how she sounded, only about the fact that she wasn’t wearing pants. Chill dudes, she’s still 16…or is she 17 yet? Also, I kindof like this look?

Taylor Momsen rules. “As soon as you try to be different, you end up looking like everyone else,” totally true.

Gossip Girl’s rebel designer, Taylor Momsen, celebrates her sweet sixteen today, and I wanted to be the first to wish her happy birthday! It’s hard to imagine she’s just sixteen, but then again the spotlight has been known to cause people to grow up a bit quicker. On that note, happy birthday Miss Momsen, hope you have a great day!
Two worlds collide as this trend sweeps the city. Girly girls are showing their edges with leather jackets, thick chains, and motorcycle boots. I hate to make a Gossip Girl reference, but think Blair Waldorf meets Taylor Momsen (no, not Jenny Humphrey, Taylor Momsen, the not-trying-as-hard-to-be-edgy-version). I love this look, but would be interested to see edgy girls trying to be more girly…would that have the same effect?

We’ll start at the root of the problem, Ed Westwick. Ed has a band called The Filthy Youth that he has put on hold to finish up with Gossip Girl. If you’re putting your so called “punk” band on hold to shoot a show called Gossip Girl, you shouldn’t be in a punk band. Not to mention the band really isn’t good. Don’t believe me? Check out their MySpace.
Next up Taylor Momsen. Trying to follow suit with Ed Westwick, she started a grunge inspired band called The Reckless that also isn’t good. Her bandmates suck, she’s awkward on stage, and there is a reason she got cut from being Hannah Montana back in the day, because she can’t really sing. I’ve listened to her songs over and over, and she sings in a monotoned voice. The point of grunge music is to scream and squeel, and while she tries she doesn’t succeed. If she really wants to start a band maybe something the in light of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would be a bit more appropriate. Taylor has the look, she just needs the material to back it up.
And finally there’s Leighton Meester. Much to my suprise, B can sing (but then again so can anyone with auto tune)! Never the less, Leighton has by far the superior voice to the prior two, but again I don’t know where her intentions are with music. She chose to do her major debut doing guest vocals for the hipster dance wannabe’s Cobra Starship, but I’m interested in seeing where her career takes her. She belongs in pop music for sure.
For all these aspiring rock stars, maybe their music should remain a hobby. They will forever be cast in the shadow of their Gossip Girl Upper East Sider shadows. Not to mention, I thought that Jennifer Love Hewitt proved to world that sitcom stars can’t become triple threats (not since Jared Leto I guess, but look at him now!).
Here’s a video of the Cobra Starship song that Leighton is featured on. This isn’t the actual video, but that kid really sums up my point that Leighton picked the wrong song to debut on:
I think Christina Aguilera is going through a mid-career identity crisis. She started us off with a young, cherub-like genie-in-a-bottle before moving to the oh-so-fabulous pin-up stage where she stayed for some time. Then she gave birth and started to swing the drag queen look which didn’t sit so well in my stomach. Now, Aguilera apparently watched too much Gossip Girl. Does anyone else see the resemblance to Jenny Humphrey here? It’s the lumberjack-after-a-MGMT-rave-party Jenny Humphrey kind of look that I hope doesn’t stick around for too long. I guess if the singing career doesn’t pan out, you can always be an Urban Outfitters window model Christina.
Thanks Just Jared!
The show may not be getting all the viewers they want, but their ad campaign have been great. The latest features the shows stars with different words fake graffitied over their faces. I love it! But where is Chuck Bass? Or my personal favorite Taylor Momsen? I would say where’s Vanessa, but who really cares?
Thanks Just Jared for the images.
