Read their post.  It pretty much sums up how I feel about Taylor Momsen and this insanity.

There were so many great pictures from this GQ photo shoot it was tough to pick my favorite, but I went with this one.  Excuse me while I swoon.

I Should Hate This Song

Posted in music, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on June 29, 2009 by melsanie

I can’t tell if I like this new song by Cobra Starship (what?) featuring Leighton Meester, aka Blair from Gossip Girl and that slutty teenager on House for a few episodes two years ago. It’s fun/horrible, which equates to a “hot” summer single. You listen and judge for yourself. In the mean time, I’ll be hating myself while jamming to it on my ipod.

Ed Westwick Previews GQ Fall Fashion [Just Jared]

Whoever Said ‘Children Should Be Seen and Not Heard,’ Forgot that Sometimes, Not Even Seen…

Here I was, enjoying my evening, popping blisters and watching that Kathy Griffin show (which, an hour later I still don’t understand…) When a commercial for that new Bravo show about NYC prep school students comes on.  I was personally offended.  The concept of the show is utterly outrageous.  Granted, I didn’t go to an NYC prep school, but I’m preeeetty positive Gossip Girl is not based on a true story. It’s not even a “ripped from the headlines,” Law & Order style, representation of anyone’s high school experience.  Sweet Valley High is a more realistic depiction of high school, okay? And I think those books were about identical twin sisters who like, solve crimes in their spare time…

Anyway, despite the fact that they’re calling it a “new reality show!” this new Bravo show is not based in reality at all.  And all the kids are terribly beautiful and fabulously WASPY of course. Of course.  Well, except for one heinously inbred blonde chick, and a kinda fat boy who says pompous things and clearly fancies himself a real live version of Chuck Bass. Hate me all you want for pointing out  the following, but these two kids are what real NYC prep school kids look like: inbred, kinda fat, Jewish, and 45. Make a show about THAT, Bravo.

i needed this dress 5 days ago

This dress would not look good on me but I want it anyway.

[OMG Spoiler Alert]

A few things.

  1. I love how when everyone started freaking out and Nate tried to shush them, everyone ignored him. Of course they did.
  2. Rufus being all happy and humming down the street? So awkward and FORCED. I wanted to punch his smirky little smirk right off his face.
  3. I’m glad that Georgina’s little Jesus, Praise be to God stint is over because it was getting to be too much. If I wanted to hear preachy Christians I’d go to Tennessee. And the bit where she says “the bitch is back” and then puts on her sunglasses? Totally a cliche and totally worth it.
  4. But. I WILL thank sweet baby Jesus that someone finally cut Eric’s hair and got rid of the highlights.
  5. I don’t remember any exact quotes, but every episode just solidifies one thought in my mind: Chuck and Blair are the best actors/have the best writers in this show.
  6. The Lilly/Rufus spin-off looks stupid and I’m pissed that I’m not going to find out what happens with Georgina next week. Stupidheads.
  7. I want Blair’s green/gold dress.
  8. Do you think that Ed Westwick gets a headache from squinting and furrowing his brow all the time

UPDATE: From my friend Seth.

  1. I liked when Chuck said he loved Blair, but I did NOT like that he said it to Serena, not Blair.
  2. I liked how Jenny continues to desperately try to be relevant.
  3. I liked seeing Rufus unhappy because he sucks.
  4. I liked everything Georgina did, for a change.

Ummm, I beg to differ.

If this is manly, you don't even want to imagine what I look like in a jumper.

“I feel like a tranny a lot of the time. I don’t know, I’m … large? They put me in six-inch heels, and I tower over every man. I’ve got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on … I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I’m surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes.”

Uhhh, what Blake?  Ok, I get that you’re tall.  But a man?  You’re, like, super skinny and GORGEOUS.  Ugh. I will still like you because I think that you and Dan make an adorable couple, but come on.  Let’s put a kibosh on the complaining.  ALSO, on the show they showcase your boobs all.the.time. As Diablo Cody said via TwitterPretty actresses saying “I look like a tranny” is the new “I’m sooo fat.”

Ps. Blake, on the cover of Allure, you don’t look like a tranny, you look like a prostitute who got lost in the Wet-n-Wild section of Walgreens and had a three year old apply your eye liner.  You need to apply some make up remover STAT.  My eyes hurt just looking at that mess.
