My favorite on Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester’s upcoming new album (due next spring) will be very exciting.
“The music is very fun,” she told Teen Vogue. “It’s edgy, like electro-pop rather than bubblegum, and you can dance to it.”
She also discusses her GG co-stars, well, one in particular: Ed Westwick. “[He] is my favorite actor to work with, we have really good chemistry.”
AND she also addresses the fact that she was born to a mother who later served time in jail:
“I wouldn’t have volunteered that information, but I’ve never kept it a secret either. It’s just not my past; it’s not my story to tell. I wasn’t born in jail; I was born in a hospital,” she stresses. “I lived with my mother for a few months in a halfway house, and then I went to stay with my grandmother for a few more before my mom got out. But I had a normal life.”
