Leighton Meester Performs in NYC as She Focuses on Music

Leighton Meester grabs her guitar and performs 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.”

    She looks happy. Music sounds great and she looks fantastic. Very happy for her and truly excited for her album release. Can’t wait to get my hands on the CD.
