"Gossip Girl's" Leighton Meester, Musically Inclined Multi-Tasker

From Billboard via TVtattle comes word that "Gossip Girl's" Leighton Meester has landed herself a record deal. I heard her mention something about this during an interview and of course she plays a pop star on "Entourage" so I'm merely raising an eyebrow for now. Feel free to sing your little heart out, Leighton. Just don't embarrass us. I'm going to be pissed if Blair Waldorf's cool quotient takes a hit for this.

Oh no, the loss of cool is already happening. Link is to Leighton singing in what is clearly a really quality movie from her past called "Drive Thru." L and the rest of the girl band are like a sad, late 90s version of Jem and the Holograms. The voice isn't terrible though. Notice Penn Badgley's name is also in the credits. I think we've just stumbled upon our next guilty-pleasure rental.
