The best place to be: Backstage

Heya! Anyone else have the Monday blues? I do, and it sucks. But, I've got a couple backstage videos from the concert on Friday night, so hopefully they will cheer you up! Ok, so they're only a few a seconds long because celebs are always getting rushed through crowds so quickly, but hey, it's better than nuthin'.

Leighton Meester seemed sweet—she stopped to take a pic with a few fans. I don't always love her fashion choices, but I'm really digging this futuristic-style dress. Hey fashion pals, does anyone know who she's wearing? Not that I can afford it, but it's always interesting to know. Anywho, she looked gorgeous and skinny, obvi—skinnier and taller than she looks on Gossip Girl, actually.

I whipped out my camera as Usher walked by with his posse. He came through so quickly, not many people realized it was him. I yelled out his name hoping he'd look my way, but no such luck. His new teen prodigy, Justin Bieber, was at the concert, too. Has anyone hear about him? He's really cute and surprisingly talented. I thought he was just another teen twerp until I saw his onstage performance with Jordin Sparks—boy's got vocals.

The only person that did not come backstage was Taylor Swift, and I was pretty bummed by that. Laugh if you will, but I am a big fan of her music. Anyone else with me on this one?

Tell me this: Has anyone found a cure Monday blues? I used to go to the movies almost every Sunday night to boost my spirits, but that is an expensive habit, and I can't afford to do it as frequently these days. Alright, I'm putting my PJs on—night night!


  1. Ellen~

    I have to remind myself that you are in celeb central and I'm here in austin, TX. LOL..slight difference.

    I really need to get my butt to NYC and experience that sweet madness for a week:)

    What fun!


  2. How exciting! I'm a huge Gossip Girl fan, and just love me some Blair Waldorf! Glad to hear that Leighton stopped for a few pics with fans, but am really suprised that she is taller & skinnier in real life? How tall?

    I couldn't help but laugh the first time I heard her music, but it's growing on me now. What do you think of her music?

    Sad you didn't see Taylor. I'm a huge fan too & would love to hear your impression of her new do!

  3. Glad I'm not the only Taylor fan, Mrs Muffins! It was pretty disappointing that she didn't come backstage. She was the only person who didn't...well, other than John Mayer, but I didn't want to see him anyway!

    Yes, Barbara, you have to come to NYC!! Maybe wait until late spring though...the winters are a little bananas!

    Rachel, it might have been Leighton's heels and updo that made her appear taller, I dunno. She just looked longer and leaner. Damnit, I wish I had looked at her shoes now! I don't know if u caught it in the vid, but she even said something about feeling so much taller than everyone.

    I haven't heard much of her music...the only one I can think of right now is the song she did with Robin Thicke. It's ok...kinda sounds more like she's talking than singing though. I LOVE Blair, but I'm not sure how much I actually like her. I don't feel like I know what her personality is. And re Taylor's 'do...I really don't love it. She's a super-cute girl, but doesn't really have the looks to pull anything off like some people can. I think she should just stick to her infamous blonde curly locks! I would KILL for hair like that!
