I heard a collective sigh of “here we go again” when Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester announced that she wanted to be a singer too. It’s like… Heidi Montag all over again. But here’s the thing. It’s not like Heidi Montag all over again. Leighton can actually sing!
A recording of hers leaked onto the net where she covers Kim Carnes’ Bette Davis Eyes. It honestly sounds really good. It’s one of those songs you’d love the first time you head it without knowing who sings it.
Unfortunately for Leighton, she’s going to have to overcome the people who criticize actresses who want to record music.
People like Heidi Montag (who’s not even an actress) have ruined it for all with their attempts at singing!
I think she’s going to overcome this one and shine as a singer.
Check it out.
