Leighton Meester Focusing on Music after Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl may be coming to an end… tear… but that doesn’t mean Leighton Meester will be disappearing. The actress/singer hopes to release her début album by the end of the year.

“It’s bittersweet. That’s the perfect word for it. But at the same time, it’s great to move on and do something different,” Meester tells E! Online. “Playing the same character for six years is great, but it’s exciting to do other things…I want to release an album by the end of the year. I probably have 20 songs ready but will release an album with 10 or 11.”

Meester currently is signed to Universal Republic. Her first single, “Somebody to Love,” featuring Robin Thicke, was released in 2009.

All we know is that we can’t wait to see what Ms. Meester has under her sleeves. We’re fans forever no matter what you do!
