Gossip Girl is Art, "Totally Meta" says The New York Times, Me

"Professing his deep admiration for the show’s revelatory narcotic effect, Mr. Phillips cited the overlap between issues he’s tackled on canvas and the many themes explored on “Gossip Girl,” such as 'lost virginity, teen pregnancy, divorce, rape, manslaughter, suspected homicide, teen suicide, gay sexual identity, eating disorders, criminal blackmail, theft, as well as drug addiction and sex with multiple partners.'"
-The New York Times

"Does life imitate Gossip Girl or does Gossip Girl imitate life? Now that's a philosophical conundrum for the ages! They've already got their three real-life cast couples making out on screen (Dan & Serena, Blair & Carter, Chuck & Vanessa) and all over NYC. And now there's another totally meta GG connection! Taylor Momsen, perhaps inspired by Little J's work designing dresses for Eleanor Waldorf, is designing clothes now too! "
