‘Gossip Girl’ Star Penn Badgley Sees Music In His Distant Future

Posted by: | Filed Under: Penn Badgley | Comments Off on ‘Gossip Girl’ Star Penn Badgley Sees Music In His Distant Future


NEW YORK — Maybe one day, fans will get to hear a “Gossip Girl” stars compilation album. From Leighton Meester’s electro-pop music to Ed Westwick’s and Taylor Momsen’s rock stylings, the CW show is churning out quite the catalog of actors-turned-musicians. And it looks like Penn Badgley may be the next star to try his hand at a music career — though he says it may be a while before he begins.

“Years from now, maybe you’ll see something, but for the moment, it’s something that I don’t [want to do],” the actor otherwise known as Dan Humphrey told MTV News.

With girlfriend Blake Lively in tow on the red carpet at a Burberry party on Thursday night, Badgley talked about his love of music and why he wants to keep his talents all to himself. “I mean music is my first passion, but because of that I don’t really want to just take a first step in the wrong direction,” he said. “At the moment, I just want to be sensible about what I do. I just write and I play, and that’s all I need for myself right now.”

Badgley’s “Gossip Girl” co-stars haven’t been as reluctant to pursue their music careers. Momsen recently told MTV News that rock and roll “feeds my soul,” and Meester has worked with Cobra Starship for a recent single. So what exactly does the actor think about his peers’ music? Badgley said he listened to Ed Westwick’s band the Filthy Youth back when they started filming the show. And though he admitted that he hasn’t heard Meester’s or Momsen’s songs yet, he thinks they’ll do just fine in the music industry.

“I haven’t heard any of Taylor’s stuff, but apparently it’s pretty decent,” he said of his onscreen little sister. “I wish them the best with it. I think it’s awesome that they’re doing that.”

As for Chace Crawford’s newly acquired starring role in the “Footloose” remake, Badgley said his co-star will have no problem shifting from blue-blooded “GG” good guy Nate Archibald to dancing bad boy Ren McCormack.

“I think he’s going to be footloose and fancy free,” Badgley laughed. “It’ll be great.” (click the link up top for a video too!)

Leighton Meester’s building is a smoke-free zone.

The Gossip Girl beauty has left her neighbors in a huff after she banished cigars, cigarettes, and other forms of cancer sticks from all apartments sharing a floor with her posh NYC pad. Leighton has asked neighbors to refrain from lighting up inside their homes because she “develops a sore throat if she’s exposed” to smoke.

“She asked everyone not to smoke because the smell comes under her door,” a Leighton spy tells Star.

Ironically, the young star’s boyfriend, actor Sebastian Stan, and co-star Ed Westwick are both heavy smokers.

“Everyone thinks she’s being a diva.”

Chace Crawford Exclusive Footloose Chat

Posted by: | Filed Under: Chace Crawford | Comments Off on Chace Crawford Exclusive Footloose Chat


This week’s Entertainment Weekly spoke exclusively with Chace Crawford and producers about the upcoming Footloose remake.

Crawford is ready to follow the fancy footwork of Kevin Bacon when he begins shooting Paramount’s reboot of the 1984 dance classic Footloose next March. The 23-year-old Gossip Girl star landed the lead after Zac Efron dropped out. “I know Zac and we’re actually friends,” Crawford tells Entertainment Weekly. “He’s gotta make the best choice for his career at this point and I have to make the best for mine and luckily it worked out for both of us.” Still, Crawford wasn’t even born when the original premiered in theaters. So is this just an elaborate ruse to win at Six Degrees? Jokes Crawford, “I want my number to be up — my Bacon number.” Crawford won the part after a brutal audition, including dancing and singing, for producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Hairspray) and director Kenny Ortega (High School Musical). “It was, like, five hours of the most rigorous tests ever,” says Crawford. “I walked out very confident.”

A Paramount spokesperson confirmed to EW that Dancing With the Stars’ Julianne Hough will screen-test this week. Hough’s recent success as a country music star could give her an advantage. Says Meron, “It’s a much more singing-intensive movie for the female lead.”

The new Footloose, which recently got a rewrite from Erin Brockovich’s Susannah Grant, will pay homage to the first film — the setting will still be a dance-free town, and the original cast could pop up in cameos. Also expect to hear familiar tunes like the title track. “The classic hit songs from the movie will be sung,” says Zadan. “There will be new songs that will be written by new artists, and those will be soundtrack songs.” Explains Meron, “It’s not really a burst-into-song musical. Any songs that are sung are coming out of an organic place.”

One thing that may not reappear is some of the more elaborate choreography. “I don’t know if the gymnastics [high bar] scene is going to make it,” says Crawford, who’s about to embark on an Ortega-plotted training regimen. “I’ve got some movement in me, but I’m not a dancer,” he admits. “I need to start stretching now.”
