Goodbye, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port. Hello, Blake Lively!

Well, sort of. She's not going to be a fashion intern at the magazine, but the Gossip Girl star is the March 2008 cover girl for Teen Vogue!

Here are some of the interview excerpts from the 20-year-old Gossip Girl beauty, who talks about romance, family, TV and (of course) Britney ...

On her rumored romance with her Gossip Girl co-star (and on-screen boyfriend) Penn Badgley: "I try not to talk about my dating life like I want to, but once you start, I think it's all downhill from there."

On rumors of on-set strife: "There is always going to be drama on set, but it's just not true that Leighton Meester and I dislike each other."

On trying to be sexy during some of her Gossip Girl scenes: "In one scene, I totally fell off the barstool making out with Chace Crawford. I was trying to be sexy. So I think, ‘what would Britney Spears do?' So I whished around my hair."

NOTE: What would Britney do? No clue... but it sure wouldn't involve pants!

On what the limelight has done to Britney Spears: "I feel sad for Britney Spears. I want to see what everyone else would do in her situation, she so talented and misguided. She has lived her whole life in front of an audience."

On her older brother, an actor and model, sending some pictures of Blake Lively to his agency: "I played along and did a few auditions. After eight weeks, I got my role in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants."

On not wanting to act as a child: "I wanted to be an interior decorator. Baking and flower arranging have always been my favorite hobbies. I love Martha Stewart."

On strong family ties and staying grounded: "They are my best friends, anything that goes wrong I go to them. I'm not a wild person at all. You never read about me dancing on a banquette at some club because that never happens. In high school, I'd go to fundraisers at Fuddruckers, not drink martini's at the Palace bar."

On reuniting with co-stars America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel, and Amber Tamblyn for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2: "When we got back together, it was like no time had passed. We stayed together in two connecting suites, talked and sang Disney songs all night."
