A Gossip Girl goes pop
Leighton Meester, who plays rich bitch Blair Waldorf on the hit teen TV series Gossip Girl is releasing an album, reports Bang Showbiz. When asked if she was planning to move into music, Leighton replied, "I am, yeah. Technically, yeah I am. I mean, for real this time. I have always done music, just now I am actually doing an album that I plan to release." Leighton, 22, also said she likes the "creative process" of making music, adding: "It's so cool because it's a completely different creative process. 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." However, Leighton reassured fans she has no plans to abandon Gossip Girl for the pop limelight. Which is a relief, coz another Hayden Panetierre-style Britney crossover attempt is the last thing the world needs.
