So the first time I heard this new “leaked” track from Leighton Meester, I didn’t like it. I thought it was dumb. And then a strange thing happened: I really, really wanted to listen to it again. And then again. And then again. And now I’m on the sixth listen and I can’t stop.
There is a long list of people who ought to be penning thank-you notes to Michael Jackson’s estate right now. These people include Senator John Ensign, Governor Mark Sanford, and Leighton Meester. With the media insanity surrounding MJ’s death, the cheating scandals of Ensign and Sanford have disappeared from view like a political penis into an intern’s hoo-hah, and we’ve now forgotten entirely about Leighton Meester’s little foot-job sex tape.
Luckily for Leighton, she’s got a chance to be back in the spotlight for something other than her fancy footwork — her latest track with Cobra Starship, “Good Girls Go Bad,” is poised to be one of the hottest songs of the summer. I told you guys about this song back in May, when it had first hit the Internet, and it’s starting to get widespread radio play and gain popularity now. I LOVE this track. I just can’t get enough of it. The video was just released — enjoy!
It’s the battle of the Gossip Girl actresses-turned-singers!
Not only is Taylor Momsen’s band, Pretty Reckless, signed to a huge record and management deal, but now we have a second single out of Leighton Meester — kind of. Leighton’s featured on the new Cobra Starship single, “Good Girls Go Bad.” Her bit starts around 1:15. I gotta admit — this is a hot track. A really hot track, and I expect it’ll explode this summer. It’s trending heavily on Twitter right now, and that’s probably just the first sign that we’re gonna be hearing a lot more of this song.
Dude. Blake Lively. WHERE THE HELL IS YOUR SINGLE? Get on top of that, girl. You’re losing ground here.
It’s just the month of new singles around here. Everyone’s releasing or “leaking” them. Here’s a “leak” of Leighton Meester’s single from her upcoming debut album. It’s called “Birthday.” It’s way better than that crap Paula Abdul just released, but it’s definitely not Taylor Swift quality.
Why don’t I have a record deal yet? They’re giving them away like free condoms on student health day. Record deals must be growing on trees, or falling like snow out of Linsday Lohan’s nose because everyone who really has no business at all having a record deal is getting one. The latest? Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester.
The 23-year-old actress began recording material — described as having an “electro-pop edge” — for the project in March and has clocked studio time with producers Polow Da Don (Usher, Fergie), Harvey Mason, Jr. (Justin Timberlake, Pink) and Spencer Nezey (Jupiter Rising).
It’s a good thing she’s working with good producers because I’m guessing the two elements she’ll need to make a decent record are not good songwriting and vocal talent, but excellent production and a heavy dose of Autotune.
