Girly Gawker site Jezebel.com has a reaction to New York Magazine’s very long analysis of why Gossip Girl might be the best show ever. And why is this publishing related? Because Gossip Girl is based on books, silly! And, I love the show to an unnatural degree, so I of course will happily post all day along about Serena, Dan, and the gang. Even more, though, Jezebel’s whole point is that while Gossip Girl is obvi totes awesome, it could be even better. Now you ask, how is that even possible???? Apparently, the books (which I never read) are (gasp) better than the TV show. Apparently Dan isn’t so cute, and little J has way bigger tits, and Vanessa, well she has a shaved head!! Crazy.
Also, I’m going to bet that author Cecily von Ziegesar would never have allowed this to appear one of her covers. But, nevermind. The lesson here – the book is always better than the movie, the TV show, the mini-series, etc. But, if you’re looking for pretty people, weirdly addictive story lines, and all around teen drama awesomeness…well then. OMFG. Tune in tonight.
