Leighton Meester as Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf

Leighton Meester as Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf

blair waldorf may be the last person you’d expect to start a career in pop music, with her icy cool conservatism more suited to an office/kitchen/bedroom, but leighton meester has popped up on a version of awesome new republic‘s birthday. yes they have a ridiculous name, but hey, it’s one way of getting noticed. the song isn’t bad, but i doubt it’s going to send her stratospheric.

you’re probably wondering why i’m even covering this, but i must admit gossip girl is my (no longer) secret shame. but to its credit, it has some great music – santigold, the faint, we fell to earth – and, according to this, dan listens to oppenheimer, rufus listens to television, serena listens to cat power and chuck listens to unkle!

anyway, check out the original and blair’s versions here.
