Leighton Meester to sing her way into your wallet

Leighton Meester (The CW’s Gossip Girl) is about join Hilary Duff, Emmy Rossum, Jennifer Lopez, Lindsay Lohan and more among the ranks of the countless actresses alternating a pop music career. The difference here is that Leighton has apparently pursued music for a long time so this isn’t just an afterthought to get more cash out of young fans.

I’ve always done (music) – just now I am actually doing an album that I plan to release. It’s so cool because it’s a completely different creative process (to acting). From beginning to end it’s yours and you make it. You can see the finished product. It’s sometimes hard when you’re acting to be like, ‘Oh, I see the finished product right before my eyes.’ So it’s cool you’re there from start to finish when you are writing.

No word on when we can expect Leighton’s debut album or what style of music it will hold. All I know is that the fact the girl is pretty is usually enough for me to listen to her songs, so since I think she’s incredibly cute I’ll be there. But what about you? Are you excited at the prospect of a Leighton Meester album? Do you like the work of any actress turned singer?



Leighton Meester is a product of the criminal underworld

Awesomely cute actress Leighton Meester (The CW’s Gossip Girl) was born while her mother was in prison because her whole family are a bunch of drug dealers. Say what now? True story, Leighton’s father, grandpa and aunt all did hard time! Whatever, I think it’s cool Hollywood gives people a chance no matter how twisted their family story is and how much drugs they may or may not be taking. Oh wait…

Gossip Girl‘s second season debuted this monday in America and the first season was recently released on DVD.
