Lillie Gissen


From a very early age, Lillie Gissen was totally enthralled by the entertainment industry, from music to movies to television. She had J-14 posters plastered all over her childhood bedroom walls and definitely knows what it’s like to live the fangirl lifestyle. Her all-time favorite artists are Taylor Swift, One Direction and the Jonas Brothers – but she also loves keeping up with Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande.

When she’s not writing away at J-14’s New York City office, Lillie spends most of her free time traveling around the world and attending concerts. While she resides in Manhattan, she occasionally heads upstate to visit her family (and dog!) in Mahopac, NY.

Lillie, known as @Boopsy429 on Instagram and Twitter, is definitely an expert when it comes to keeping track of where celebrities are and what they’re up to!

Work or writing background leading to expertise

Lillie joined American Media as an intern in August 2016. In 2018, she was hired as part of the photo team, while writing stories for both OK! and Star Magazine online. In November 2018, she became a full-time writer at J-14 Magazine, where she now writes upwards of 40 news stories a week.


Lillie was a media studies major who concentrated in journalism at Hunter University. She graduated in 2017.
