Chambers, chapter II, _The Younger Set_: "I ought to arise and go forth with timbrels and with dances; but, do you know, I am not inclined to revels? There has been a little—just a very little bit too much festivity so far …. Not that I don't adore dinners and GOSSIP and dances; not that I do not love to pervade bright and glittering places. […]" * A genre in contemporary media, usually focused on the personal affairs of celebrities. * 1914, Louis Joseph Vance, _Nobody_, chapter I: Little disappointed, then, she turned attention to "Chat of the Social World," GOSSIP which exercised potent fascination upon the girl's intelligence. She devoured with more avidity than she had her food those pretentiously phrased chronicles of the snobocracy […] distilling therefrom an acid envy that robbed her napoleon of all its savour. * (obsolete) A sponsor; a godfather or godmother. * John Selden (1584-1654) Should a great lady that was invited to be a GOSSIP, in her place send her kitchen maid, 'twould be ill taken.
