A Vintage Murmurs/Leisha Hailey Interivew From their Apartment

So today after about five excruciating days of waiting, my Murmurs CD FINALLY arrived in the mail!  (Yes, I was impatient…)  The reason I knew about them is because  one half of the band was Leisha Hailey, whose band Uh Huh Her is one of my all time favorites and who’s movie “All Over Me” is too amazing for words.  Their music took me a little while for me to get into because it’s pretty folk-y and they both sing at the same time in most songs the entire way through (not just choruses) which sounds kind of kitschy on first listen, but I’ve really grown to love the simplicity of it all.  And to be honest, I haven’t stopped listening to the album since I got it. 

Anyway, last week while I was browsing through YouTube I found this interview from ’94 of Leisha and Heather Grody from their NYC apartment (love it) and it was so cute that I had to post it.  I also love Leisha’s pink hair here–she had it in “All Over Me” which is what made me love her so much, so I was thrilled to find out that many of their videos featured her fabulously pink hair too.  (What can I say, I like a girl with a cool hair color if it suits her) But watch and enjoy, and then go buy some Murmurs and Uh Huh Her music.  They’re sound is worlds apart, but absolutely lovely.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Promote Their New Line

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen stepped out to celebrate and promote their new line Holt Renfrew last night and looked great.  I really love Ashley’s outfit–it’s so simple but also really classy and beautiful. 

The girls have really become full fledged, respected designers in the past year and their clothing lines The Row and Elizabeth and James are gorgeous, elegant and apparently doing really well.  Ashley’s VMAN editorial is really what convinced me they’re the real deal.

Spotted: Little J in Brooklyn

The real HBIC of “Gossip Girl”, Taylor Momsen was seen strolling onto set recently in Brooklyn to begin filming a new episode of the hit show.  Taylor looked gorgeous wearing a vintage purple dress and strappy heels as she strutted past the paps.

In related news, Taylor’s band The Pretty Reckless just released two new demos from their forthcoming album which can be listened to here.  The band’s had a busy summer touring with the Veronicas and feuding with Courtney Love, but things are only just getting started. They’re pretty hardcore/fantastic and kind of reminiscent of the 90s Riot Grrrl movement so do yourself a favor and go listen!

Chace Crawford’s Party Gets A Little Out Of Hand

Chace Crawford Pictures: spl115432_002

All you little Super Sweet 16-ers can put this in your pipe and smoke it.

Last week “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford celebrated his 24th birthday at Bridgehampton Polo where he invited some friends from Texas and friends from NYC (including co-stars Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan–ex-roomate Ed Westwick was noticeably absent though) where things got pretty crazy–so much so that Chace left his own party.

According to SFGate, things were fine until Chace got annoyed by all the attention from photogs in the VIP section and party guests started pushing and shoving to make them stop taking pictures.  So in an effort to avoid any type of confrontation, Chace apparently “fled” his own party.

I’m sorry, but how many of you have gotten your party practically shut down from crazy people wanting in forcing you to leave?  That’s what I thought.

Anyways, there are lots more pictures of the birthday boy filming GG in NYC Friday below.
