MUSIC: The Pretty Reckless

As I consistently look back over my stats, my most viewed post is the one I did on The Pretty Reckless. Right after that comes the one I did on Keys for the Sponsor video. Now that I think about it maybe I should start doing more music posts if that’s what you guys like. Anyway, the new The Pretty Reckless music video, Miss Nothing just came out and I decided to do an update. I’ve been getting so much information about Taylor and her band and I’ve developed so many opinions I thought that it may be time to spill it all, so first let’s discuss Miss Nothing.
Miss Nothing as a song is something that I can get into. I mean I like Taylor’s vocals because to me it kinda sounds like she’s using her voice for something it wasn’t purposed for. The lyrics are also something that I can get into. But what I can’t get into is the raccoon-esque eye liner. I mean deciding to do basically one set for the entire song and pretty much making it evident that it’s all about Taylor Momsen and having the rest of the band sit arond to be what amounts to mere props, is a personal decision but… don’t influence little girls to make themselves look as if they have two black eyes… we understand you fired your stylist to find your own aesthetic and style but… you don’t need to use the money you used to pay her to buy new eyeliner every day because you used it all the day before.
See the rest of our coverage below the clip

I feel like Taylor takes so much ownership over the band “I’m with my band The Pretty Reckless!” I don’t know maybe it’s just my critical self doing what I do but I feel as if it’s being positioned as Taylor and The Pretty Reckless not just The Pretty Reckless. Anywho, I do love the band and their music. They are performing at Warped tour now. Things worked out great for Taylor because they arranged for her to be absent on Gossip Girl while the filming for the tour was occurring. Isn’t it nice to have so many things in your life going on in your life that you need to request to have a break from one so you can pursue the other?

From the songs that I’ve heard so far from the band, Blender is still by far my favorite. I’m not positive why, but it is. There’s not much else I want to say about them except that they are talented. I just hope that they don’t intend to coast off of Taylor’s celebrity and rebellious attitudes. I look forward to the album, and of course Jenny returning to the Upper East Side.

Really Taylor? And you’ll be 17 in like 5 days!

GG 3×14: The Day of Reckoning



GG 3×13:Down the Rabbit Hole



Check below for my opinion and conversation about the fashions!!
… Soo if you didn’t catch those DROP DEAD GORGEOUS earrings that Blair was rocking for majority of the show…. let me point them out to you. The drop earrings are made by House of Lavande and were paired with a vintage Moschino jacket, and although you can’t tell it here… that’s a Valentino clutch she’s carrying. The dress, which is being muffled by that jacket that never opens, is Victoria Beckham and is one shouldered. Blair definitely won best dressed for me this episode.
Blair isn’t the only one rocking Moschino though. Adding a bit of class and sass to her new punk look Jenny stunts a Moschino embellished jacket, and underneath an Andrew GN Fall 2009 evening gown. I love the soft pink lip mixed with this gothic embellished gown. I would LOVE to know who her drop earrings are by, but alas I have yet to find out. Anyways we need to get on to some happenings in the show now don’t we??

The credits were barely even finished rolling before the drama had started so let’s try to just knock this all out really quickly.

N and S are together. After attempting to take their friend’s advice(B and Lonely Boy) they found themselves fighting. They resolved it by romping around in a coat check closet. When did kissing and making up become so chic?

Rufus has been avoiding Lily due to some unsettling information. Apparently Rufus has found out that Lily spent the night with her ex husband. The picture above was snapped towards the conclusion of the episode, after Rufus confronted Lily and said that he needed time to think. It was snapped right after he got off of a floor in Lily’s building. All I have to say is… Lily wouldn’t look good as a brunette.

With B and Chuck we find them deepening their relationship. B wants to become a member of yet another exclusive this time secret society run by someone that Chuck can introduce her to. Chuck though is focused on uncovering the identity of a woman who paid a late night visit to his father’s grave. Finally, together they confront her and while Chuck buys her story about just being a fling, B says that it’s the same look she wears some days… oooohhh how I love B.

And last I know you are all wondering about J. No longer is it Little Jenny. With her extensions and her growing drug dealing profession, she has definitely dropped Little from her name. In this episode the little Argentinean(I should probably learn his name… wait he is from Argentina right??) has a problem that he needs J to solve. He has to get the drugs into an ambassador’s dinner and to the ambassador’s daughter. J makes a jacket and sews the “goods” into the jacket, and after a small tiff, it eventually gets to the client.

What we’re looking for in the coming episodes:

Yes that’s who you think it is. G… as a blonde. According to some things she told E! News, G will be back on the show soon. Oh what plans does she have in store for us? Hadn’t she been sent off by the almighty B into the sunset?? My money is on G being the one to turn J’s life upside down.

Speaking of people turning J’s life, where is E?? I liked little E but he was no where to be found this episode?? Did I miss something??

Fashions… of course… what else is there to look forward to??

Another one of B’s master plans! I’m happy that she finally has a real relationship but I liked when she was less grown up… more high school… shoot me.

anyways that’s all I have to say for this episode… ciao ciao ciao


UPDATE: Taylor Momsen versus Jenny Humphries





First I want to apologize for posting this and not writing anything… I was fiddling with the music player and then I was trying to do something else, then I got sidetracked… but I’m back

Anyways, todays post is about Taylor Momsen and her Gossip Girl character, Jenny Humphries. I started thinking up this post when I began listening to The Pretty Reckless but after getting wind of some tidbits I decided I had to blog.

First we’ll talk Jenny Humphries esque things.

From what I hear, little J and her kingdom that she is underwriting with her drug selling habits will be going on hiatus for a few weeks. While at the beginning the expected break was supposed to be 10 or 11 weeks long, figures that I’m hearing now come to about 6. The show will be replaced by “Life Unexpected”. It looks to me like someone’s trying to bump the bejeweled crown from Humphries head, and what’s worse, they’re from an entirely different show.

I know you may have been wondering where Jenny’s new look has come from, or maybe you thought that it was all the stylist of the show. On the contrary, Miss Momsen has to do with that. With the start up of her band, The Pretty Reckless, and this new glam punk rocker chick look she rocks offstage, the people at the GG camp had perfect inspiration.

Now I want to address a few words that were dropped on me from a friend, who knows someone on the set of Gossip Girl. From what I hear, Taylor has been causing a ruckus because Leighton Meester’s music is played on the show but not a note has been heard from The Pretty Reckless. She apparently doesn’t think it’s fair and has been making quite a stink about it. Maybe this character is going to her head a bit much. Anyways, yesterday I heard that Miss Momsen might have made so much of a fuss that she may not be asked back for another season…

My question is who will she be replaced with? Maybe this is the whole reason for the fight with Erik so he can dethrone her, kick her off the show, and focus on someone else… I don’t see any one on the show being able told the spotlight well besides Erik so will Gossip Girl stop talking about Constance period. Or will Georgina Jr. pop up?? And who would play that character? I’ve taken an interest in Lourdes Leon recently, and I wonder if she could do it??
