Coming up Roses


Now, I don’t know about you, but I feel like these days whenever I feel like a little Gossip Girl and turn it on, Nate Archibald, aka the yummy Chace Crawford, is nowhere to be found.  I mean, don’t be shocked, the guy is still on the show, but I feel like his character has gone a bit…meh.  He just kinda swans in, says something ubiquitous and then swans out.  Which would be fair enough if he were topless, but in these scenes he’s always…clothed.

I know, what the hell are The CW thinking?

So, feeling a little Chace Crawford deprived I looked up to see what he was up to and I soon learned that while Nate Archibald is as boring as watching grass grow (quite seriously, that boy needs to do something drastic already), Chace’s life is going swimmingly.

First off, didn’t have to go to jail for being a big ol’ pothead.  Might I just add though, that doesn’t everyone do pot?  Why on earth WOULD they have jailed such an attractive guy for basically nothing?  Anyway.  Moving on.

Secondly, he doesn’t have to deal with Taylor Momsen anymore since she’s given up on acting.  Not sure if he considers this a good thing, but the rest of the world does so let’s just go with it, shall we?

Thirdly, while his television career is suitable “eh” at the moment, he has a big bunch of hilarious sounding movies coming up.

The first, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, is currently filming and has a giant cast of famous people (Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock and Jennifer Lopez to name a few) all getting together and having babies.  Awwww.  While news about Chace’s character hasn’t been released yet, I assume he’ll be someone’s baby daddy.  And hey, why not?

The other movie that has just been announced is called Responsible Adults and sounds absolutely hilarious (you hear that Chace?  Don’t disappoint me ok?).  Chace stars opposite Katie Holmes (bless her soul for doing something that doesn’t revolve around Tom Cruise), the older woman who starts dating him…before she realised that back in the day she was his nanny.  Oohh!  The possible consequences!

So what do you think?  Everything coming up roses for Chace or is he just a really busy bee?  Let me know!

She’s Outta Here

We’ve been wanting it to happen for a long time.  Praying.  Wishing.  Possibly doing a crazy voodoo style rain-type dance.

And it has.  Taylor Momsen, aka Racoon Eyes, has decided that she is totally over that whole acting thing and has quit Gossip Girl.  Yep.  Little J is no more.  Although, honestly Little J stopped existing long ago and in her place was a dirty skanky ho bag.  Or something like that.

Anyway, Taylor Momsen has decided that acting is not for her (she has been doing it for years…remember, she was the little cutie alongside Jim Carey in The Grinch) and that she solely wants to focus on music, touring and her band, The Pretty Reckless.

In an interview with Elle Magazine she was quoted as saying:

I quit acting, actually.  I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band and that’s pretty much all I want to do.  Hopefully I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.

So what do you think?  Can Taylor be a successful muso or is just the look that she’s got down pat?  Thoughts please!

Racoon Eyes Strikes Again


Taylor Momsen.

You know she’s crazy.  I know she’s crazy.  Worst of all, she knows she’s crazy.  Fair enough. So what’s the problem?  She PRIDES herself on it.

Like the comment below.  This was prompted after there were rumours that Taylor was setting a bad example for Lourdes (Madonna’s little kid) when they worked together on her Material Girl fashion line:

“I probably am a bad influence. The other day, this reporter brought his 12-year-old daughter to an interview. She was looking at me open-mouthed, like: ‘I want stripper shoes, Daddy!’ He hated me! But I’m not saying, ‘Be like me.’ I hope girls read what I say in interviews – they should just be themselves. They wouldn’t want to be like me. I’m crazy. I’m fucking out of my mind. I’ve been told I was out of my mind since I was 11.”

Right.  Poor Little J, just like her character from Gossip Girl, doesn’t seem to realise that being bad doesn’t happen.  You can’t wear stripper shoes, and wear so much eye gunk that you go blind to become cool.

And so far, in my books she’s failing.  Which basically translates to her being a pain in the ass.

Thoughts?  Is Taylor a bad girl or just a bad fake?

Reason #147 why The Vampire Diaries is awesome!

They’re normal!  Is anyone else sick of those actors who become a part of a popular show and turn A-lister on us?  *cough Taylor Momsen cough*  They party all the time, don’t wear knickers, get checked into rehab for drug use…Sound familiar?

Well, luckily for us Vampire Diaries fans, our fave stars are NOT this way.  Partially because they are all alone in Georgia and partially because in my mind they are wonderful people (ccould they NOT be?  Have you seen how good-looking they are?  Wait…)

According to Kat Graham, who plays Bonnie, this is why they are so normal and close:

“[If we shot in LA] I think we would all be so busy and have so many responsibilities press-wise. But because we’re in Georgia, we’re just like, ‘Hey guys, what do you want to do after work? I don’t know. Let’s go hang out. Let’s go to a bar or a movie.’ It’s a very normal environment.”

So hooray for the only NORMAL celebrities who star in a CW television show.

Like A Fly You Just Can’t Squash…

I know.  I know.  Harsh.  But this is Taylor Momsen, a la Little J of Gossip Girl fame, we are talking about.  As in bad acting, tantrum throwing, racoon eyed Taylor.

As fellow GG fans would know, the fourth season is about to kick off and the first half is blissfully absent of Jenny and her hypocritical ways (I mean really, no Queen Bee?  What is wrong with the girl?!?!) and rumours were circulating it was because Taylor had been BANNED from Gossip Girl.  I agree, I did not actually think that were possible, but I guess it is.  Well, the rumour mill had spitted out that because Taylor was acting like such a pain in the ass, and that since her character is rather disposable, the writers cut her out until she got her act (tehehe) together.

Unfortunately, this is not the case.  No, Taylor will not be airing our screens for quite some time because she will be performing for her band, The Pretty Reckless, as they tour America.  Sadness for us because she will return, but more sadness for those who will be at her concert and have working ears.

Do you guys agree?  Or am I being too harsh?  What do you think of her singing and acting ability?  So good that she can behave in any way she likes?

Leighton to join forces with Vera Wang!

Leave a comment

Leighton Meester, the devilishly evil Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, has been announced as the new face of Vera Wang’s fragrance that is to be released in the middle of next year.

So why does Leighton get this awesome gig?  Well according to Vera it’s because her

“beauty, talent and spirit will inspire all the young women that I hope will enjoy this passionate, new young fragrance.”


At the same time co-star Blake Lively is rubbing shoulders with the A-listers after she was spotted having dinner with none other than Leo DiCaprio (ouch on Penn Badgley’s behalf) and “bad girl” Taylor Momsen continues with her rock star concerts.

Has anyone else noticed that while the girls are doing something with their careers the boys from Gossip Girl are well…not?
