Leighton Meester Interview -- Exclusive

Leighton Meester gives Just Jared an exclusive interview during NY Fashion Week at the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge at NYC’s Bryant Park on Wednesday (September 16). Here’s what the 23-year-old Gossip Girl actress revealed after attending the 3.1 Phillip Lim show:

JJ: Your stylist Logan Horne boy was featured on tastemaster Scott Schuman’s fashion blog The Sartorialist.

LM: Yeah, he showed me! It’s cute. He’s a cutie pie.

JJ: You’ve been attending a few fashion shows this week. When you see a look you like, do you put in a request?

LM: Well, the other night, someone asked me how I dressed myself and I was, like, “My stylist dresses me” but I’d say it’s, like, 80-90% him and the rest is me because I’m very open-minded and we’re always on the same page – just very open-minded and it’s fun.

JJ: You went to a fashion show with Rachel McAdams – how was that?

LM: Altuzarra! Yeah, I met her there and she was nice – [photographers] are always, like, “Can we take a picture together?” but I can’t even describe it. She’s so beautiful in person! Very nice, too.

Leighton Meester Interview — Exclusive

JJ: How was your Fashion’s Night Out at Bergdorf Goodman?

LM: Yeah, I was working all day long and Alexandre Birman, the shoe designer, I’ve been wearing his shoes a lot – [Logan and I] discovered them and they’re really, really good! I’ve actually been wearing them on the show a lot also. He’s Brazilian and he’s so funny because he and his whole group are Brazilians are so warm and so nice and very sassy. And my stepmother and stepsisters are Brazilian – my dad’s married to a Brazilian woman.

JJ: Do they speak Portuguese?

LM: They speak Portuguese – I know, like, two words because my brother’s baby – he has three children and they’re highly encouraged to speak Spanish, so if I’m going to know any language, it’s going to be Spanish, not Portuguese… and Portuguese is difficult.

JJ: What was it like presenting with Jack Black at the 2009 MTV VMAs?

LM: Lots of fun! He’s really funny. They told me that he was going to be dressed like his character, but… (laughs)

JJ: Where are you with your new album?

LM: It’s hard to say because I’m still working on it so much. I could stop now because I think I have enough material but I’ve come to a point where I’m slowing down. I’m still in the studio all the time working and writing and tweaking but it’s really, really fun.

JJ: Do you have an album title yet?

LM: Yeah, I think I figured it out but I can’t tell you yet. (laughs). Soon!

JJ: If you could encapsulate the essence of your album in one word, what would the word be?

LM: I think that the music itself is very, very fun for the most part. I have a few more ballady, emotional songs. But lyrically, it’s a little more docile – the music is very fun. I guess it’s dance music – it’s electro-driven but it’s still soft.

JJ: Is your leaked song Body Control going to be on the album?

LM: I’m not sure now because obviously somebody leaked it. It kind of sucks, but what can you do? But I was really happy because everyone loves it and I have a Twitter and everybody was always, like, “we love that song!” so it was nice to hear. It kinda did suck that I didn’t have any control over that. I did not have body control over that.

JJ: The next song you leak should be leaked to

LM: If I ever leaked the music! I don’t know who did it. I think somebody hacked the producer who made the track. It happens all the time, which really sucks, but what are you going to do?

    @notice: didnt she say she discover his shoes? she didnt claim she made him or anything. you guys will just reach for anything. and previewing tracks at a club doesn’t mean she has control over the leak.
