Celebrity Gossip and Trends Following Diet and Weight Loss with the Largest Selection of Thinspiration in the World.
The Queen of the Starvation Scene!!
Gossip Girl publicity is like shoes — no matter how much we get,
our thirst remains unquenched. So we are delighted to report two
recent Gossip Girl photo-shoot sightings. Recently our fellow Daily
Intel bloggers spotted Leighton Meester on Ludlow Street doing a
photo shoot with Patrick Demarchelier. And yesterday another Cut
spy spotted Penn Badgley at Splashlight Studios (just one floor
beneath our office!). We hear the shoots were for Teen Vogue and
Glamour, respectively. Upgrading from the teen mags but not
bringing Blair with you, Penn? That's just the kind of smug thing
Dan would do.

11/2/08 This month, Seventeen magazine interviewed Penn Badgley, better
known as Dan from the Greatest Show of Our Time. In their piece, we learn
that Penn's celebrity crush is Parker Posey. What? Setting aside the fact that
his real-life girlfriend, Blake Lively, is also a celebrity, um, duh, Parker Posey
would totally be on Team Blair! Anyway, we also learn that Penn loves Mean
Girls and Friends. Hmmm, he sounds so un-tortured. This doesn't sound like
Dan Humphrey at all! But wait, in the print edition of Seventeen, we get this

What advice do you wish someone had given you growing up?
I wish I had known that vulnerability is universal for everyone, regardless of
how cool or not cool they are. You have such a heightened awareness of
yourself, so even small things seem life-changing — a bad day turns into,
'Oh my gosh, my life is over.' If I were still a teen, I would want to hear: 'It's
okay. Take a deep breath and move on.'

Just right! (Emphasis theirs.) Now don't anybody go acting all surprised that
we give such close reading to the print and online versions of a magazine
like Seventeen. Would you expect any less of us?
