Leighton Meester is now throwing her incredibly stylish hat into the music ring. The queen bee of
Gossip Girl's Upper East Side announced at New York's Fashion Week that she will be recording and releasing an album, reports

Access Hollywood. Meester has always enjoyed making music, but this time around, she wants the public to hear her work as well. The budding fashionista told Access, "It's so cool because it's a completely different creative process," than television. Meester enthused, "From beginning to end it's yours and you make it... You can see the finished product." Perhaps her role as teen pop star Justine Chapman on Entourage inspired her to bust out her first album. Either way, you can be sure many a Blair-wannabe will pick up her album and blog their little hearts out about its merits - or lack thereof. Meester will also be appearing alongside Gossip costar Blake Lively on NBC's 30 Rock, as well as reprising her role as Justine on Entourage this Sunday, Sept. 14 at 10 pm/ET on HBO. - Erin Fox Related " Use Our Online Video Guide to Watch Gossip Girl " Gossip Girl's Mother to Write Memoir
