Chace Crawford: Spotlight doesn't stop me from partying

Talk about bad timing.

Hot on the heels of Chace Crawford’s Friday arrest for marijuana possession comes a new interview in which he talks about pot and partying.

The Dallas native, who was arrested in a Texas parking lot, told Los Angeles Confidential magazine that playing a drug dealer in the upcoming movie "Twelve" was “a complete departure for me… he’s almost forced to sell marijuana, and he doesn’t even know what he’s doing. He’s in over his head.”

It’s a feeling the 24-year-old "Gossip Girl" star can relate to as someone constantly in the public eye because of the paparazzi. But, he said, “It’s not worth trying to walk on eggshells… so you either live a certain lifestyle or you don’t and hang out with certain people or you don’t.”

Crawford added that he isn’t letting the spotlight stop him from partying. “I’m single in New York, and [my castmates and I] are all in our mid-twenties, so it’s not feasible to say we’re not going to go out and have fun,” he told the magazine. “It’s just how you do it and how you conduct yourself. It annoys me because you start to develop a certain kind of paranoia…”

    Hopefully he'll grow a pair, (or the pair will descend) and he'll respond to this with a "yeah, I smoke pot, STFW? STFU!"
