Gossip Girl to be made into a Mexican telenovela

As announced last month, Mexico will be launching its own revamped Spanish-language version of The Greatest Show of Our Time. Co-produced with Warner Bros. International Television Production, Gossip Girl Acapulco is scheduled to debut in Mexico sometime this year, and as its title suggests, it will swap the fabulous streets of the Upper East Side for the sandy beaches of Acapulco.

In other words, this...



...will become this:



I now urge you to watch this following trailer:



And these are my GIF-laden reactions, per usual:











As you can see, Serena has become Sofía López-Haro, and Blair is now Bárbara Fuenmayor.

"La tuitera más temible del lugar"?? "Ahí se ven, perras"???! God, this looks embarrassingly tacky. Plus, it's too tropical to be GG, I mean, New York was pretty much the soul of the original show. This could probably pass for a cheap Mexican knockoff of The O.C., though. Either way, I honestly don't know how Warner could have greenlit this shitfest. Did I miss something or does Serena drive her own car now? And where on Earth is Blair/Bárbara in the promo (besides the cheesy opening credits)?? And most importantly, what the actual fuck is Mexican Dan's unibrow???




He just saw his own reflection in the mirror

Jesus, honey! Wax much? Ugh, he looks like the fugly love child of Zachary Quinto and Joe Jonas.

On the other hand, the actor who plays Nate—or rather, Nico de la Vega—is muy caliente. And just because he got nothing on Chace Crawford doesn't mean we can't swoon a little, right?



No matter how bad this hot mess turns out to be, I might actually check it out when it premieres. Y'know, just 4 teh lulz.

Also, if a Russian version of GG is ever made, I'd just like to throw it out there that I need to be cast as Georgina Sparks!!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
