  3. 3

    OMG i swear every actor ends up having a music deal!! for example: hilary duff, lindsay lohan… sheeshy



  4. 4

    What were you saying about album sales dropping?.



  5. 5

    Sounds like her publicist wrote that statement. I don't know who she is apparently she's a girl who says stuff and can walk in a straight line.



  6. 6

    Now if they can nab someone for writing the gossip girl scripts better and less predicable !

  8. 8

    What is the deal with my comments not appearing?



  9. 9

    LOL, Time for a Gossip Girl musical, First Ed,
    then Taylor, and now Leighton, mind you, I
    do love The Filthy Youth [ Ed ] & Leighton
    actually does have a good voice, next it'll be
    Chase, guaranteed.

    Creative boundaries? Just because you have headphones on in a studio and sing into an effect laced microphone doesn't mean you are an artist. You look like you could suck a large cock and that is the only reason you got a deal. You may as well be selling deodorant. You are poular right now and Universal wants to cash in on you…that's it…you are the reason why album sales are dropping.

    I am sooooo sick of these same ol' tired ass lookin white chicks with NO TALENT! I couldn't tell them apart if it weren't for you all putting the names on the post.



  12. 12

    HAHAHAH i love the picture



  13. 13

    looks like Queen B can do anythings! OMG



  14. 14

    No! Not another singing actress! I don't any celeb that is talented at both, it's either this or that. What is the future of Gossip Girl? Leighton, don't mess yourself up now.



  15. 15

    Ugh, Im so sick of these wacktresses getting recording deals simply because they are famous. (Hillary Duff, Linsay Lohan, Emmy Rossum, this Leighton chick, etc) Singing isn´t what it used to be. Before, you actually had to have talent, charisma, a great singing voice to even get a recording deal. Now, anyone and everyone can become a singer! (ie, Heidi montag) Such a sham



  16. 16

    Luvs it! I follow her on twitter and true she leaked a couple of her songs, they were FANTASTIC! This girl is truly Hollywood royalty!



  17. 17

    No clue who this chick is. Seems like another wacktress trying to make her pockets fatter by pretending to sing. Singin now and days is such a sham. Anyone and everyone can become a singer. No need for talent or an amazing singing voice. Hello Heidi montana, or whatever her name is.



  18. 18

    Check out those gorgeous eyes!



  19. 19

    Re: Blind Baby – You are such an ignorant bitter one! Have you heard any of her tracks??? She has a sweet beautiful voice and guess what? Unlike many of those other "singers" she writes her own lyrics and puts her heart on them… Do some research before you talk bs about someone you obviously don't even know!



  20. 20

    Re: whaateever – She is perfect! Even in this NON flattering pic she manages to look gorgeous!



  21. 21

    Re: KEEFER – so whats the prize for being first? should i shout 20th?



  22. 22

    Re: Kate27 – Ok I will go research why she got a record deal. That is what I will do. You are missing my point little girl…if this girl lived in bumfuck Idaho do you think she would have a recording contract?
    She is not talented…she can barely sing and I don't give a fuck if she wrote some lyrics. You like this type of shitty music because it is fed to you everyday. You can be her #1 fan…I think she sucks…my opinion so go fuck yourself and listen to your shitty bubblegum pop.



  23. 23

    NO, NO, NO ….PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME THIS IS JUST SOME KIND OF SICK JOKE!!!



  24. 24

    That rocks!, I love her music and she`s absolutely gorgeous!.
    And she really can sing, I hate actors that try to be singers normally, but she`s a class act. I will most definitively buy her album.

    Being jealous ain`t pretty, bitch.

    Re: JigSaw – Another trainwreck in the making….



  27. 27

    Re: UrMajestyMsG – HAHAHA, JEALOUS OF WHAT…A HORRIBLE ACTRESS ON A SECOND RATE TV SHOW, ON A 3RD RATE CABLE CHANNEL…HA! HOW WILL I EVER GO ON???



  28. 28

    She should just stick to acting, she should focus all of her energy on that because I bet she could nab an Oscar. But never a Grammy.



  29. 29

    WHAT?



  30. 30

    Wasn't she on a recent cover of Rolling Stone eating an ice cream cone with her co-star? Looks like selling yourself like that pays off and gets you where you want to be. "All rising to high places is by a winding star…"



  31. 31

    Pretty girl



  32. 32

    She has a great voice! It's not like all pop-dancey like. If you haven't heard her yet, then you should shut up. At least, she got a record deal and what do you have? NOTHING.



  33. 33

    yes yes yes I LOVE HER



  34. 34

    She actually has talent though! look up her song on youtube. its a cover actually called betty davis eyes



  35. 35

    i really can't wait! her most recent leaked song sounds so great! it's actually my ringtone atm



  36. 36

    Good for her! I think the people that don't know anything about her should keep their mouths shut! First of all, her main focus ever since she was young was to sing, she just happened to fall into acting, and does a damn good job of it! (People may have their opinions about Gossip Girl itself, but if any of them took the time and actually WATCHED the show, they would know that she is the most talented actor out of the bunch, and does an EXCELLENT job of portraying bitchy upper east side princess Blair Waldorf. A good actor makes the character believable, complex and raw and she does it FLAWLESSLY and the critics love her for it!) But she has repeatedly stated that she her first passion has always been music, and now that finally has the chance, why not? She is not just another lame actress who wants to be a singer, she ACTUALLY DOES HAVE TALENT. Her singing voice is completely different from her speaking voice, it's sultry and deep for a girl, while her speaking voice is nasally and high. She did a beautiful duet with pop and jazz legend Tony Bennett on her 2nd appearance on Entourage. She also did a great cover of Bette Davis Eyes (although I'll admit the background music is annoying), which prove that the girl CAN sing and has an amazing voice, so people need to be stop judging a book by its cover and give Leighton a chance, she's not like OTHER low-rent pop star wannabes who shall remain nameless!
