#331; Occupy the Upper East Side

I’ve been loving the celebrity-watching going on in NYC at the Occupy Wall Street protests – everyone from Rosanne Barr to Lupe Fiasco has showed up (here in Boston we’ve had an impromptu performance by Amanda Palmer and a pep-talk by Cornel West), but one of my favorite responses so far has been from protester Penn Badgley. His ironic, jaded opinion on his line of work just tickled my fancy.

#occupywallstreet – Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley was picketing personally this week. Yep, carrying a sign and all. “I mean, listen, it’s cheesy,” he said, “but I want to do whatever I can. Let’s be honest: I’m on fucking Gossip Girl. It’s absurd that celebrity power is what it is, even on that scale, but, like, use any tool you have, you know?” – Source
