i'm not going to lie, i really don't like taylor momsen, people can harp on about that being judgemental, but whatever, i take her by the image she clearly wants to portray, and i'm not keen on it.
But i think she can sing quite well, it's not amazing, she's flat a lot, but it is pretty good, and i like the song.
one question tho, help me out, is that taylor momsen or jenny humphrey??

@ok... lol, no it's cos you said 'you' alot, after I commented, so I wasn't sure :) @Laney
I think you have fair points, the only thing I will dispute there is that, to me, she doesn't seem mature.

I don't think donating was the issue, I think she could have expressed a little more remorse. I was quite taken aback by the comment because Haiti is so much bigger than a tv show, or a record deal. The two things are not on the same level in any way. However, if it is a misquote, then I apologise for judging her for that comment. But if it isn't, I think it's quite a hard comment to defend. and yes, I did donate.

Gossip websites are like that, she must have known that before she got famous, and she knows that now. Would a little tact hurt? Fair enough if this is how she wants to appear, she's achieved it.
I mean, to be honest, it makes very little difference to my life, so i'm not entirely sure why i'm trying to argue this out haha. I guess it was just the calling of high school kids 'petty' that made me dislike her to begin with.
I know, but they've tried that with other teen stars, and they haven't managed to make them look as bad as Taylor, so idk, it must be some reflection on how she is if it's this easy for them to do so. and @ok... is that directed at me? :s or just people in general..

I didn't mean a literal 'eff you' but it was an 'eff you' as in she doesn't care about what we think. if you catch my drift?
Actually, I think what she said was that she can't relate to what high school kids talk about because it all seems so petty to her. I think it's fine that she hangs out with older people, but to say that when I doubt she's attented a regular high school with 'kids' is a bit bold.
It's great that she spends time with fans after gigs and stuff, I mostly see local bands and stuff, so they all stick around after, but I guess she's quite famous, so it's good that she stays a while after.
She's not all bad, that's not what i'm trying to say, but it's the attitude she gives off, and the fact that's she's trying too hard to be 'angsty' or 'mature' that bothers me.

AL, I get that, but i'm 17, and as far as i'm aware, apart from a total twazzock of a guy, not a single person I know seems as self-absorbed as she is.
I guess being 17, so i'm assuming closer to her age than you are (?), I get angered by the comments she makes that makes us out to be 'petty' and immature. When I find it's the opposite. I suppose you can look at it from an older point of view and say 'it's just a phase.' which I can't do.
To me, there's a difference between acting aloof, and saying 'eff you.'
It's pretty indisputable that fame has gotten to her head, and she can get away with it where she is now, because I think if she acted like this in the normal world, she'd have no friends. She doesn't seem to have any grip on reality.
I guess i'm judging her as I would judge anyoen else, famous or not, and what I say about her is what i'd say about anyone who acts or talks like that.(that makes me sound like an absolute twat, but i'm not usually judge-y or a bitch)

Firstly, I do agree that it's fine for her to say she doesn't want to be a role model, altho putting it more eloquently may have been a better idea..she's entitled to be what she wants to be.
But I find it a bit insulting that we, the public, got her to where she is now, and she's sorta saying she doesn't give an eff about what we think.
I get the impression she's a total dick, and I KNOW, i know, I can't judge her because I don't know her etc etc, but are you seriously saying if you met someone (non famous) who made comments like she does and bangs on about how mature and above people her age they are, you wouldn't automatically dislike them a bit? or am I just too judgemental a person...because I know I would.
Obviously, I would take the chance to try and get to know them before making a proper judgement, but those comments aren't exactly reader/listener friendly. And there's very little to prove otherwise, i've watched full interviews with her, and she appears to be 'eff you, i'm so mature' the majority of the time.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
Chuck and Blair this time, whilst i loved eric, his lines weren't that amusing. 'If you two want to kiss, it doesn't count as cheating', 'this is not your wedding day, cotillion only happens once!' Finally, that sounds realistically them. 2. The threesome: Yay or nay?
NAY. wayy too built up, they were a three some pretty much the entire way through the epi, i mean..do they even know other people?? 3. Team Jenny or Team Eric?
Team Eric! always. Jenny's so ridiculously smug, someon's gotta slap some sense into her. 4. Are you happy Blair and Serena made up?
I'm indifferent, it was nice i guess. 5. Will Serena and Tripp hook up? Should they?
Yes, and NO. such a shame really. BONUS QUESTION: Is the show feeling a little boring this season?
I don't think there's a single character I actually like this season, apart from maybe Nate. I have to admit i'm a bit of a chuck and blair fan at heart, and i miss them. Jenny, is fast homing in on V's top spot on my ARRGH list. But I will always watch no matter what and hope the intruige sets in.

kinda like this epi, with the smooth club raid at the end. 1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
Eric is fast becoming my favourite quoter..whatever that is. 'You do not got it.' just LOL. 2. Do you prefer wholesome Jenny or Jenny the bitchy sellout?
to be honest, i'm not jenny's #1 fan. But wholesome Jenny, cos then at least she's not trying to be a rock, knock-off version of Blair. 3. Did you miss V?
lol...wut? 4. How long will Dan make Olivia levitate ... if you know what we mean!
oikwym. but god knows. 5. Biggest plot hole of the night: Serena getting mad at Blair when plan ended up getting her clients good PR, Blair involving Jack in any way, or Chuck's decision to have his own club raided? Serena, because she is just one reasonable sized plot hole for me so far this season. BONUS QUESTION: Next week's promo promises scandal, backstabbing, lip service, deceit and mud-slinging. Share your predictions. I'm not hot no the politics, but let's hope something interesting there! I predict Blair will get her bitch on, hell i hope i'm right, it'd be about time!

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
Blair's french line. about that garden. 2. Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff: Good fun or cheap stunt?
Banks should stick to American's Next Top Model, now i love that, not for the acting, purely for the endless bitching. I actually like Hilary Duff, poor her, rooming with V. 3. Who did you miss most last night: Bree, Georgina, Carter, or Serena's cleavage?
hummm well, after the little cliffhanger last week, i was sorta anticipating Carter or Bree to clear that up. So I would have like to seem them. 4. What will Jenny's reign as Constance queen be like?
Jenny's not growing on me this season. And HER telling that other girl to wash her eyes?! I mean, okay, so she'd toned down the racoon this epi, it still wasn't subtle. 5. Are Chuck and Blair more entertaining together than apart?
Just anything Chuck and Blair is good for me. Altho, he's just a tad up his own arse, even more so this season. BONUS QUESTION: There's big drama coming up in next week's wedding episode. Will Lily and Rufus actually get married?
po-ta-to, po-tah-to, who cares??
