Oh, actor folk, always trying to conquer other roles and assume other positions. Remember when Lindsay Lohan used to sing? She released those silly songs about rumors in the clubs and amped up power ballads about her father....yeah. This isn't like that.
Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester is currently in the studio working on an electro-pop album she plans to unleash upon her audience of fashion-conscious teenagers and dancey hipsters this fall. The first single will drop in July and she's working with reputable producers like Kenna & Polow da Don (which is a fun name to say pretty much all the time). The reason why she's different than LiLo? It seems that she may actually be able to sing and has been recording music even before her major label deal.
She's already done vocals on the track "Birthday" by Awesome New Republic (which surfaced all over the interwebs a couple months back, and can be heard below) and her leaked cover of "Bette Davis Eyes" has made a splash as well.
I'm actually not so dubious about this one. We'll see. Piggy flu?
