Has it been a long week for anyone else? Oh boy. Let's all count down the hours until the weekend with former "Gossip Girl" actress Michelle Trachtenberg, because she speaks truth:
With that, Crushers, we bid you a lovely weekend! Make some memories out there!

We love a good coming-of-age drama, and there's no time like "The Spectacular Now" to head to the theaters to satisfy that angsty thirst for witnessing the awkward experience of transitioning to adulthood.
"The Spectacular Now" serves up an unlikely love affair between two high school seniors (Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley) with a side order of darker subject matter (i.e. teen alcoholism). MIles plays Sutter Keely, a popular yet aimless kid living it up drinking hard liquor out of a super-sized cup and working a dead-end job at a clothing store. Shailene plays Aimee Finicky, a shy, forward-thinking, sci-fi geek who finds Sutter passed out on her lawn after a bender. The two begin a relationship that changes the direction of both their lives, for better and for worse.
The film has already generated a lot of buzz from its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and comes out in select theaters this week. Here are five things to do before seeing this movie.
It's been a tough few weeks for the cast of "Glee," following the death of star Cory Monteith at the age of 31. But, with Lea Michele taking the lead, the show must go on. The actress tweeted today that she' back on set, getting fitted for her role as Rachel Berry.
Also today, Fox president Kevin Reilly announced that Cory will be honored in a tribute episode dealing with drug addiction.

Grab your tissues, ladies. Sam Claflin is officially off the market! "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" star recently tied the knot with British actress Laura Haddock in a private wedding ceremony, Gossip Cop has confirmed.
The couple had been engaged for nearly a year and a half after meeting at an audition.
“I walked into an audition room, I saw her and I knew,” the actor, known for his roles in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," told Yahoo! News of his real-life fairy tale ending. “I called my agent, I said, 'Mate, I am in love.' He’s like, 'How did the audition go, mate?' I was like, 'No, no, you don’t understand. I have just met the woman I want to marry.'"
We love Anna Kendrick for many reasons (her stunning singing voice high among them), but if we had to single out one trait, it'd definitely be her keen sense of humor. (Mostly because it produces tweets like this...)
And that's it, really. Let's all just bask in Anna's awesomeness.
This daily column may be called "Tweet Dreams," but this is no illusion.
Nick Jonas posted a photo to Instagram today that left the entire internet wagging its tongue (and drooling on its keyboard).
Along with the, uh, fine image, the JoBro wrote, "I never do this but... Healthy living and fitness update. Post workout picture. #diabeticinshape #2.0."
Maybe you should consider doing this more often, Nick...
One of our favorite couples is calling it quits: People has confirmed that "Vampire Diaries" actor Paul Wesley and "Pretty Little Liars" actress Torrey DeVitto are divorcing after two years of marriage.
Paul's rep told the magazine that the two "have decided to amicably split. They will continue to remain good friends."
The couple met on the set of the 2008 horror flick "Killer Movie," marrying in a hush-hush New York ceremony in April 2011. In addition to her ABC Family series, Torrey has played a recurring role on Paul's bloodsucking CW series as Dr. Meredith Fell, a one-time love interest for Alaric (played by Matt Davis).
With the her latest novel out today, author Aprilynne Pike shares her "Earthbound" playlist with Hollywood Crush.
I have a confession. And it’s pretty terrible.
I don’t listen to music while I write.
I know! I shouldn't be saying such things on MTV.com! But it’s true. So playlists are always a little different for me because I make them after the book is finished and just listen to them for fun. But there are some advantages, I think. When I start writing a book, I only vaguely know the characters and the story is still a seed. But by the time I’m done, I know these characters like family and the story is totally set. So in some ways, I think my playlists are even better because I get to really pick the perfect songs. Here’s my playlist for "Earthbound," which I’ve been listening to when I run in the mornings!
Before actors Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller become Dauntless in "Divergent," they'll play young loves in the upcoming romantic drama "The Spectacular Now" (out August 2).
The two are currently on the publicity trail for the film, with Miles tweeting the adorable evidence in the form of a funny little photo.
These two obviously have great chemistry, so be sure to check out the film when it opens Friday.
