Jenny Loses Her Virginity On “Gossip Girl” And, Of Course, It’s A Disaster

There I was, minding my own business on Monday night, when I noticed “Jenny Humphrey” from “Gossip Girl” became a trending topic on Twitter, i.e., something everyone is tweeting about. Jenny Humphrey, of course, is the precocious 16-year-old budding fashion designer from Brooklyn, played by Taylor Momsen. With her older brother, Dan, young Jenny attends a fancy Upper East Side prep school; she just wants to be accepted by the rich kids, who dismiss her as a social climber. I clicked on the trending topic and saw hundreds of tweets saying things like, “Jenny Humphrey is a ho!” and “I hate Jenny Humphrey, she’s such a skank!”

Clearly, this involved further investigation. Keep reading »

U.K. Department Store Does Pre-Packaged “Gossip Girl” Looks

Despite our qualms with the wardrobe on this season’s “Gossip Girl,” we still know that the show is a huge fashion influence and viewers continue to take inspiration from it. (OK, fine, we admit that we too have put together a few Jenny-esque outfits recently.) For those who don’t want to do the work of finding similar styles, there’s Miss Selfridge’s (the youth-targeted division of the U.K.’s Selfridges department store) new “Gossip Girl” collection. Check after the jump for more images. Keep reading »

Taylor Momsen Is A “Gossip Girl” Goner

Taylor Momsen hasn’t won many supporters on The Frisky with her self-absorbed remarks about not being a role model and having no time to care about Haiti. So it’s not surprising that her bad attitude has affected her relationship with the “Gossip Girl” writers. As a result of creative differences, Taylor’s character, Jenny Humphrey, will be absent next season for an unspecified number of episodes, according to an insider who spoke to EW.com. Taylor has also confirmed that she’s done with the program. The writers seem to be cooking up something extra big for Little J during this season’s finale, but something tells me the character will be back at some point. Keep reading for my ideas on how they can get rid of Taylor, but still keep Jenny waiting in the wings for another big moment. Keep reading »

Fashion Rant: The Implausible Styles On This Season’s “Gossip Girl”

There’s no debating it—”Gossip Girl” has lost its luster this season. By now, everyone’s had sex with just about everyone else and there isn’t one plot twist that would surprise us or not irritate us. (Seriously, how come Nate can never keep it in his pants, is probably a walking STD, but is still the “good-guy hunk”?) Plot aside, we’ve also been hung up on some weird aesthetic details. Whereas past seasons provided inspiration for our shopping lists, we’re not quite feeling the authenticity that the show used to bring. (True, it’s not like re-styled school uniforms look like that anywhere, but still.)

First point of contention—which isn’t so much about style as it is logistics—sex with clothes on. When season three started up again with Serena and Nate’s “steamy” relationship, we saw them engaging in some public nooky. They were presumably having intercourse, and yet, both of their pants were still on. How, exactly, is this supposed to work? Did he just whip it out? Was Serena magically wearing no panties? (You know girl has some fancy lingerie getup under there.) Keep reading »

Chace Crawford Shows Off His Range In New Movie, “Twelve” (Just Kidding!)


Twelve, by Nick McDonnell, is not a particularly good book. (My personal, snotty theory is that McDonnell got the book deal in the first place because his father edited Sports Illustrated and family friends have included people like P.J. O’Rourke, George Plimpton, and Hunter S. Thompson.) “Twelve” the movie looks marginally better, if only because it means we can stare at Chace Crawford‘s lovely face for two hours. He plays a rich Upper East Side kid who gets in over his head selling drugs to the kids of his social milieu — kind of like a two-hour-long episode of “Gossip Girl” if only Nate Archibald were more like Chuck Bass.

Poor Chace has gotta be sick of playing the same role over and over and over again, though. Will somebody cast the poor dear in a sci-fi flick or something? Keep reading »

How Gossip Girls Really Dress

As if Little J could really get away with dressing like a drugged-out downtown hooker at a posh prep school. It feels like with each season, “Gossip Girl” becomes increasingly unbelievable. We wish they’d just tone things down a little bit and take a page from the real world. Like, for example, finding out how real private school girls dress. WWD published this shoot of young ladies from Phillips, Milton, and Concord Academies, and we’re loving their school-friendly outfits that are very smartly styled with luxe items like Chanel purses and cute fillers from J. Crew or vintage stores. Kind of like how we dress! [Styleite.com] Keep reading »

Quotable: Taylor Momsen Ain’t No Effing Role Model

“To be honest, I don’t f**king care. I didn’t get into this to be a role model. So I’m sorry if I’m influencing your kids in a way that you don’t like, but I can’t be responsible for their actions. I don’t care.”

Graphic Novels Gone Girly

Graphic novels have always suffered a geek taint, a stubborn case of social acne that alienates certain sects of people. There have always been a handful of Comic-Con cuties, but, overall, society has labeled graphic novels a man’s medium. Yen Press has a solution to bring some girl power to the graphic novel. The publisher is taking female-favored heavyweights and adapting them to fit this medium. This year, Yen Press will be introducing the first installments of both The Twilight Saga and Gossip Girl series. Twilight promises to be loyal to the original novels—Yen is even working with author Stephenie Meyer to capture the right money-making, heart-melting formula. Gossip Girl, on the other hand, is a re-imagining of the story with all the classic characters. I don’t think Twihards will have any problem taking to the new medium—heck, they’ll buy anything Forks-inspired. Gossip Girl may be harder to sell. What do you think—will manga-ized Serena and Bella bring a new surge of women to the graphic novel? [EW, MTV]

Leighton Meester’s Thought Process: Two Can Play This Game

If Blake Lively thought she was the only “Gossip Girl” who can wear a plunge neckline down to her belly button, that bitch has another thing coming. Get a load of Leighton Meester‘s promo pics for her album, Love Is A Drug. [Just Jared]
