Gwen Stefani rocked some major hair on last night's '80-themed episode of Gossip Girl, where No Doubt made a cameo as Snowed Out (a cocaine reference — more Eighties than we bargained for!). The band performed their cover of Adam and the Ants' 1981 song "Stand and Deliver," which is conveniently also the title of a classic Eighties film, the 1988 movie starring Edward James Olmos as an inner-city math teacher.
The episode was a flashback to 20 years ago, and reportedly an early look at a possible spin-off show featuring Brittany Snow as Lily Rhodes in the Eighties. If you have no idea what that means, fear not — and let Rolling Stone's recent Gossip Girl cover be your guide to the universe of Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf.
Just last week, show star Taylor Momsen debuted her band the Pretty Reckless in New York City and announced a deal with Interscope. Co-star Leighton Meester has her own record deal with Universal Republic, and expects to drop her debut in the fall.
