We know that interviews aren’t usually taken during photo shoots, especially when the celebrity subject is wearing nothing but undies and a see-through raincoat. But allow us to imagine that Leighton Meester‘s quotes in the new Allure were taken while the barely-dressed Gossip Girl star waited out a surprise rainstorm at a posh lounge full of studs in suits. It was so windy out that her rain hat blew off in seconds!
“We had craaaazy parties,” Meester said about her wild youth. “We had DJ’s, bands, an ice luge, a fire twirler. One of my roommates burned off her bangs on the stove trying to light a cigarette.” Was Stefan from SNL there? Pink strobe lights? Life-size beanie babies? A snide Wal-Mart greeter in a diaper ripping pages out of a Kerouac novel? “We would go out all the time. I’ve never gotten too crazy, but I definitely got to have experiences. Now, I don’t want to do anything that’s unhealthy for me…And drugs are something that I do not tolerate at all. You’d be surprised how many people do it. If you go out and you’re living the nightlife scene, that’s what people do.” Heed the wisdom of this 24-year-old, Taylor Momsen: you don’t have to be a wild child to be an exhibitionist.
