Taylor Momsen Is Jealous of Leighton Meester; Vegas Bookmakers Lay Odds on Epic Gossip Girl Catfight
It's so sad when Hollywood's young and pretty develop potentially catfight-inducing resentments toward each other.
Wait, did I say sad? I meant incredibly awesome.
Y'see, Momsen was the first to dip her toes into the musical waters with her group the Pretty Reckless, but that doesn't seem to count for much among Gossip Girl's producers, who've been giving Leighton's songs a big push on the show and leaving Momsen to develop a fanbase all on her 16-year-old lonesome.
So far Gossip Girl has featured "Good Girls Go Bad," Meester's collaboration with Cobra Starship, on the show, as well as her recent single "Somebody to Love." They also provided a major promotional assist by premiering the "Somebody to Love" video.
As for Momsen's musical presence on the show? A big, fat zip. And for some reason this is causing friction.
According to a source,
“Taylor is not happy that Gossip Girl has been playing Leighton’s music on the show, and they have never asked to play any of her songs. It’s creating a lot of tension on set.”
But according to a rep for Gossip Girl network the CW, there's a very good reason for the disparity. Namely, that Momsen's tunes aren't so hot:
“The show will support Taylor and her music when the time is right, but her music is not ready yet.”
Well, that should smooth over Momsen's feathers some.
We'd tell Taylor to be patient and keep her pants on, but that doesn't seem to be an option for her.
