Leighton Meester is Making Music for People Who Don't Listen to Pop Music

Leighton Meester stands behind her guitar while singing three of her original songs for the crowd at the “Meet the Musician” series held at Apple Store Soho on Tuesday (October 14) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actress/singer, who later headed to Lure Fishbar, recently opened up about the kind of music she wants to make.

“I can’t really set myself apart [from pop] considering the music that I made, but I never really had the desire or time to pursue that,” Leighton told Billboard. “It’s not my taste. This [new album] is for people who don’t know anything about my acting and don’t listen to pop music. I think that’s kind of exciting. [Of Mice and Men] was the most time-consuming thing I’ve ever done. Now I have time to actually concentrate [on music], which is cool. I’ve never really taken time off to do music.”

Check Out the Poster for Leighton Meester & Adam Brody's Film 'Life Partners'!

Leighton Meester and her co-star Gillian Jacobs get colorful on the new poster for their film Life Partners.

Here’s a synopsis of the film: At 29, the most long-term relationship Sasha (Meester) and Paige (Jacobs) have ever been in is with each other, using their co-dependent friendship as an excuse not to venture out into the dating world alone. But when Paige meets nerdy Tim (Adam Brody) and starts to get serious for the first time, the nature of their friendship begins to shift. Fearing she’s being cast aside, Sasha tries to keep their relationship the same, but does growing up also mean growing apart?

Also starring in the film are Kate McKinnon and Gabourey Sidibe. Be sure to catch the movie on iTunes and VOD on November 6 and in theaters December 5.

Leighton Meester Makes It Colorful For 'InStyle UK' November 2014 Cover

Leighton Meester is eye-catching and colorful on the cover of InStyle UK‘s November 2014 issue, out on Thursday (October 2)!

Here’s what the 28-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On playing Curly’s wife in the Broadway Of Mice & Men revival: “Man, I really lucked out, the fact that I could spend six months on this compact, beautiful story that never grows old.”

On making a record with Robin Thicke in 2009: “It was fun, but it wasn’t at all me. I guess I can look back and say everything happens because you learn from it and you’re better for it.”

On valuing life more than work: “My values have shifted greatly in terms of what I find important. It’s my family, my friends and having a personal life. Those are the things that need nurturing.”

On music and acting: “My favourite thing – at least as far as the music goes, and now, actually, with acting, too – is performing live. It’s so fun.”
