Jessica on Ade’s sexuality

There is another interview from the Los Angeles Times, read below! Also, screencaps and clips for the last night episode of 90210 2×17 – Sweaty Palms and Weak Knees will be added soon, I think I’ll have them ready and online by this evening!

We’ve been hearing about Adrianna’s lesbian tryst on “90210” since Season 2 premiered. The character’s girl-on-girl story line finally debuted after the show’s recent hiatus. Watching Ade explore her sexuality has been an interesting ride for viewers, but we’re not the ones portraying the gay relationship on television.

“Yeah, it’s definitely nerve-racking,” acknowledges Jessica Lowndes, who plays Ade on the CW show. “I think it’s the same with everything my character has gone through. I have no personal experience with it, be it the drug addiction, the pregnancy and now the questioning her sexuality. But I think it’s definitely important.”

Lowndes’ first lesbian kiss was a brave step for the show, which hasn’t had a major gay story line yet. Although it was important to her, Lowndes says that kissing Rumer Willis, who plays Gia, didn’t necessarily come naturally.

“We got a laugh between takes,” says Lowndes. “Yeah, the first one was like, OK [squeals], let’s not think about it. But, at the end of the day, you’re telling a story and you can’t get in your head over it. You got to just do the work and I think the scene comes out really great. I’m very proud of it.”

I am really enjoying ‘90210.’ Thoughts? – blas0612 via Twitter
There are still some Snoozeville stories, but I’ve latched onto a few, including Naomi’s fraudulent sexual harassment charge against the new teach, which you just know will escalate into ridiculous levels of ohnoshedidn’t! “That story gets pretty crazy,” says Jessica Lowndes (aka Adriana). “You will see how huge her little lie gets in the next few episodes.”

Jessica Lowndes Steals the spotlight

There is another interview, read below! Thanks to Natalia for the heads up!

And there is still drama involved with that because Navid’s current girlfriend is the bassist in her new band.

It is definitely dramatic having an ex-boyfriend’s girl in the band. Yes, definitely. But, yeah, I think the music actually helps her get over Navid in a lot of ways.

Your music will be featured in some of the upcoming episodes, right?  I just read that your single “Tattoo” is supposed to be on the show soon.

Yes, and another one called “I Haven’t Been Drinking.” Right now with the Gloria Steinems Band it is going to be more jazzy, or kind of Amy Weinhouse, doo-wappy. But later on it’s more pop-rock and that’s what I’ve been doing. During hiatus I’m actually recording an album. It’s extremely exciting. I have been singing my whole life, so I just feel really fortunate and blessed to be able do it on the show as well.

What is your take on the current storyline? Are you happy how the writers have crafted this new side of Adrianna?

I think it is all true to her character, I really do. I think she is somebody that leads a very dramatic life and likes people to be there for her and help her. Gia is that for her, you know. She doesn’t judge her and helps her through these very complicated situations, just encouraging her. They share a special bond. I think it is very true to her. She is somebody that is very passionate and she is not afraid about what other people think. Like last year, she announced to her whole school that she was pregnant and took full responsibility. She didn’t care. She was like, “This is who I am. This is what I’ve done.” I feel the same thing with this, it’s like if she feels something she has to fully experience it. Someone could tell her, “Hey don’t do that.” But she is somebody that needs to experience it herself to fully know for herself how she feels and what is right for her.

Another interview from CW Source

There is another Jessica’s interview, this time from CW Source. Read below!

Adrianna and Gia have recently taken their relationship to the next level. What can you tell us about the future of their relationship?
Well, Ade has definitely started questioning her sexuality and has found herself very connected to Gia. She has never really gone down this path before, but she’s going to just go there and announce it in a very dramatic way, which she has done with other personal events in the past. I feel very fortunate to be telling this story line, because I think it really is an important issue for kids today. I don’t have personal experience with it, but I’ve tried to stay as true to the issue as I can.

Will we hear any more about Adrianna’s daughter?
I think there’ll definitely be some mention of it because that’s a huge thing to happen to somebody. It’s something she’s been avoiding, pushing to the back of her mind because she’s kind of scared of the consequences. And music is going to be a great outlet for her, a healthy outlet, which she has Gia to thank for.

You’re also pursuing a music career yourself, right?
Yes, that’s why it’s been so great getting to perform in the show with the Glorious Steinems. The show actually bought two of my songs which they’re going to use in the upcoming episodes.

Which songs?
They’re called Stamp of Love and Haven’t Been Drinking.

What are your influences as a musician?
The biggest influence from a young age is my mom — she used to play piano and I remember growing up and listening to her. I also like Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Rihanna, but I like incorporating the piano into it. Since I grew up with it, I just love the sound of piano.

Hollywood News Interview with Jessica

Hollywood News has a great interview with Jessica. She talks about kissing Gia (Rumer Willis) on 90210, her songs and more! Read below!

Q: How is Adrianna’s plan of no drama going for her?
Jessica Lowndes:
[Laughs] No Drama Adrianna lasted for maybe half an episode. She’s somebody that has a very addictive personality, as you guys have seen in season one and now season two. She’s addicted to the highs and the lows and essentially the drama of it all. She’s also somebody that truly needs to experience things for herself. Somebody can’t just say, “No, you shouldn’t do that.” She has to truly go through it and either hit rock bottom or learn by her mistakes by truly experiencing it. That’s another aspect to her personality. She’s also somebody that if things were just sailing smoothly and okay, she gets very bored. Yeah, there’s definitely a lot more drama to be had with her but that doesn’t mean she isn’t happy. I know a lot of people ask, “When is she going to just find her happiness.” I think she is truly happy. I think that’s just a characteristic of who she is.

Q: So you do write the music that we hear you sing?
JL:
I do. I do a mix of everything though. I have people that write for me as well and I have different producers that I do writing sessions with and we collaborate. The stuff that’s on the internet wasn’t even officially supposed to be out there. I did a demo CD when I was 16 up in Vancouver just with my best friend. It was just to get over a boy. Then the next thing I know, I was sitting next to this producer on a plane and happened to give him my demo CD just because he liked music and I had no idea what he did professionally. Then a few months later I get a call saying the show Moonlight for CBS wants to purchase one of my songs. So it’s kind of like this surreal like oh, okay, this is something I’ve always wanted to do. I wasn’t really prepared to put all my focus into it because I didn’t want to spread myself too thin, but now it’s kind of just happening organically. Like, I was hired originally as the singer of the school musical. I was only supposed to be in the first two or three episodes. Now that they’re incorporating more, it’s like I’ve really started pursuing it just this year. I’ve been back to recording and during hiatus I’m recording an album. I hope to have something out by the end of this year. Then in May, two of the songs that I have recorded will be on the show which is really, really exciting.

Jessica interview with Portrait Magazine

Here’s an interview with Jessica from Portrait Magazine. She talks about her 90210 character Adrianna and her new film “Altitude”. Read below!

So you play Adrianna in the hit show “90210,” so what has that whole experience been like?

It’s been an amazing experience, I’m still kind of pinching myself because we finished season two last week. We had 24 episodes in the first season and 22 in the second season, and it just feels so great. I’ve learnt so much as an actress and about myself as well because Adrianna is somebody who has a very addictive personality and she’s drifted to drama and the highs and lows and because of that she’s dealing with some pretty intense issues. And they are pressing issues in society that I have no personal experience with them so it’s definitely been challenging on many levels because it was first the drugs, and then the HIV scare, rehab, pregnancy and now she’s questioning her sexuality. So it’s definitely been challenging, but it’s exciting; it’s so fun to play somebody who’s so different from yourself. There are great issues that are going on in society and I feel very blessed to be able to given the responsibility to tell the story and to give a voice to these issues. The amounts of people who’ve been affected by the challenges have been incredible. Those who do feel so alone in those situations, whether its drugs or just the pressure from parents like my character has gone through. See I feel a tremendous amount of responsibility that I just like learning so much because I’ve done a lot of research for each and these incredible people, like there are even kids questioning their sexuality and that’s like something that is going on. And it’s the kind of show that actually touched base on that and it’s probably pretty terrifying, but I wouldn’t know from personal experience and it is different and far away from who I am. In a lot of ways I can relate to Adrianna, she’s just an extreme version, I’ve obviously haven’t gone through that, but I’m definitely a performer, I’m a singer and there’s going to be a lot more singing in season two, which is really exciting. So I definitely can relate to her on that level and I think that’s why when she goes through some of those horrible things I try to make her as likable, and honest and vulnerable as someone would be going though that.

I give and I give and…well, you give in return, so OK. Gia is going to cheat on Adriana, and Naomi accuses a teacher of sexual harassment, but it’s so not true. Also, things get even creepier (and life-or-deathier) with Jasper. Dun. Dun. Dun.

Embarrassing Confession: We Kinda Love 90210 These Days…and What’s Next Will Blow You Away!

Would you think less of me if I told you that the best TV screeners I’ve seen all month were for the upcoming episodes of the CW’s 90210?

If so, pretend I’m talking about Lost or The Office or something, and try to read on even if you’re not a fan, ’cause although 90210 got off to a slow start, it is kicking some serious (Brazilian butt-lifted) gluteous maximus in its current second season. And it’s only getting better.

Wanna know why you should consider watching again if you haven’t been, and what lies ahead if you’re already a fan?

Jessica Lowndes Sings! Let’s be honest, when audiences were introduced to Adrianna in the 90210 premiere, we were left with a little more than something to be desired. Flash-forward to the middle of season two, and Ade (and Jessica!) have captured our hearts and ears! The girl can certainly belt one out, and we’ll be hearing a lot more of her vocals in coming episodes. In fact, it’s her soon to be ladylove, Gia (Rumer Willis), who convinces her to share her gift with the world—or at the very least, West Beverly High.

But watch out, because her days in the chick band won’t be as carefree as they initially seem. Turns out one of the members is now dating Navid (cute new coupling alert!), and Ade isn’t as over him as she’d like to think. Enter Gia with her declaration of love, and all turns out well. Spoiler Alert! Navid’s new GF is someone we have seen many times before around the 90210 set, just not one of the regulars. Any guesses?

‘90210’ star talks lesbian plot twist

Here there is an interview from TorontoSun: Jessica talks her character Adrianna in the CW’s 90210 and the relationship with Gia. Read below!

“Adrianna has a very addictive personality, addicted to the highs and the lows,” said Lowndes, 21. “In the episode just before the break, she made a commitment to quit drugs and try to stay on the straight and narrow.

“She still has feelings for Navid (played by Michael Steger) and she’s doing everything possible to prove her love for him. So she goes to AA and meets this girl named Gia, played by Rumer Willis.

“Through different compromising situations that Adrianna finds herself in, Gia is really there for her and they share a special bond. Adrianna starts truly questioning her sexuality. So that’s definitely going to be something.”

“Gia encourages Adrianna to take her sadness over Navid and put it into music, which has been amazing for me,” said Lowndes, who is embarking upon a music career herself. “I’ve been able to incorporate a lot of music into the show.”

“It’s so exciting, and all different musical styles, as well,” Lowndes said. “It’s awesome that we got a third-season pickup and there’s going to be a lot more music in the third season as well.

“That’s what I’m doing when I’m not working on 90210, I’m working on my album. So I love it, it’s a dream come true.”

Despite being part of the quintessential California lifestyle in 90210, Lowndes said Vancouver always will be home. She did make it back to Vancouver for the tail end of the Olympics.

“I went to the closing ceremonies and different medal ceremonies and hung out with my family, it was amazing,” Lowndes said. “Just taking in that Olympic spirit, I’ve never seen the streets of Vancouver like that.”
