The new year hasn’t arrived yet (we still have a few hours left), and already we’re seeing covers of February issues of magazines. Leighton Meester, clad in Versus Spring 2011, covers the February 2011 issue of Seventeen Magazine. Set to hit newsstands on January 4th, in the issue Leighton talks music, boyfriends, and starting a family.
“I would say the same thing today as well. [But] I think that the importance of love is really strong for me in my life, whether it’s a guy or a friend or just my puppy. I think love changes you over time, and whether you have good or bad experiences, you always grow and learn from it.”
On her music:
“I’m working with a band right now, doing a lot of acoustic music through singing and writing. It’s really fun and fulfilling. It’s an expression of what I have in my life and what I’m going through, or what I have gone through, and of course, it’s mostly about love or relationships.”
Whatever the new year brings for Leighton, we know it will include more Gossip Girl. The actress is contracted to continue on with the CW show, for at least two more seasons.
