The 28-year-old entertainer’s husband Adam Brody was at the show to give his support and he was seen leaving solo after the concert. Leighton was celebrating the release of her new album Heartstrings that night!
In a new interview with Nylon, Leighton talked about starting a family with Adam.
“Most people I know are starting to get married. It’ll be kids next. I like the grown-up stuff. I like having a house. I’ve got dogs,” Leighton said.
Leighton Meester looks amazing on the cover of Nylon magazine’s new November 2014 issue.
Here’s what the 28-year-old actress and singer had to share with the mag:
On ending Gossip Girl: “I started the show when I was so young, and once it was over, I wanted to do things that were exciting and challenging and more me—more my adult taste. Of course, that’s said with nothing but gratitude and love for that experience in that time of my life.”
On doing Life Partners with husband Adam Brody: “There wasn’t time to ask if we wanted to do this together. I was reading the script. I loved the part and loved the movie. I was going to the meeting that day and he called me and said, ‘They offered me this role.’”
On acting: “For my own sanity, I’d rather play parts that I haven’t done before. That’s why I was so excited by the Of Mice and Men experience. I felt that I was part of something that meant something, and that was important to me. From now on, I would like to be part of projects that have a message.”

Here is some brand new music you can listen to all weekend – Leighton Meester‘s new album Heartstrings is available to stream in full online now!
The album will released on iTunes on Monday (October 27), but thanks to Elle the full album is streaming right now.
“It really represents me,” Leighton said of the album. “It’s sensitive, it’s sort of guarded but also open and vulnerable and triumphant.”
“You have a life outside of work—barely, but it’s there for me—so there’s plenty of material and inspiration [for my music],” Leighton added. “Family, friends, loved ones, relationships, and everything that is happening in real life is a good source of inspiration for anybody who is writing 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.”

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.

Fearing she’s being cast aside, Sasha tries to keep their relationship the same, but does growing up also mean growing apart?
