Leighton Meester Dares To Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” And It’s Actually Really Good

Leighton does Stevie proud

I am always weary when anyone covers a Stevie Nicks song — especially when it’s a celebrity who is not known for being a singer. Naturally, I was ready to hate Leighton Meester and Dana Williams’ version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” but remarkably, I didn’t. Williams, whose EP The Lonely One is now available on iTunes, sounds amazing and Meester’s not so bad either. She gets extra respect from me for her guitar-playing abilities. I rate this highly listenable, as far as Fleetwood Mac covers go. [Refinery 29]

Leighton Meester Is A Feminist & Betty Friedan Is Her Role Model

Who is your role model and why?

The American writer Betty Friedan — she fought for gender equality and wrote the great book “The Feminine Mystique” which sparked the beginning of a second-wave feminism.

So do you consider yourself a feminist?

Sure. I believe in equal rights for men and women.

Color me just a little surprised at this one: Leighton Meester is a feminist and actually cites second-wave feminist activist Betty Friedan as her role model. Friedan was the author of The Feminine Mystique, a 1963 book that that captured the unhappy, stilted lives that middle-class, mostly white women felt after marriage and children, feeling as if there weren’t other opportunities open to them. Friedan was initially prompted to write after interviewing her former Smith College classmates, when she learned how unhappy these well-educated women were as suburban housewives. The book catalyzed many women to join the feminist movement and led to an increased awareness to the restriction of expected gender roles in American society. Keep reading »

“Holiday makeup” implies many a thing. It’s festive! It’s fancy! It’s … probably a little over the top. You could go the obvious route, with red and green and tons of sparkle and, like, a wreath or pine needles in your hair, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Here, Leighton Meester shows us the perfect way to bridge the gap between classic and festive without throwing an impromptu Christmas party on your face. Let’s take a closer look at what’s going on here and break it down real simple, after the jump … Keep reading »

“I’ve stopped wearing makeup when I’m not working. For a while I thought I had dark circles and bad skin, and then I realized I was seeing myself that way because I didn’t recognize myself anymore without makeup. Now when I wear it, I think I look really weird!”

— Surprise, Leighton Meester is as far from her “Gossip Girl” character Blair Waldorf as humanly possible! This is so true — as someone who wears a full face of (admittedly light) makeup from when I wake up in the morning until I wash it off before bed, I’m sometimes appalled by my own foundation-free face because I’m so used to a false sense of perfection. I like to skip the spackle on the weekends so that I don’t forget what I look like. Leighton is on the cover of Lucky’s July issue, where she also talks about shopping for clothes at garage sales and thrift stores, and falling in love with everyone she meets all the time. A girl after my own heart in so many ways! [Just Jared]

Leighton Meester Has Her Own Craigslist “Missed Connection”

FYI, Leighton Meester, this bad boy is dedicated to you! And look, he called you beautiful and referred to Blake Lively as just ”that one blonde-haired girl.” (It’s not like she needs her head blown up anymore, what with Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Reynolds wooing her.) And this mystery Craigslist poster wants to have your babies!  Oh, who are we kidding. The whole shebang is too self-aware, witty and chockfull of SAT vocab gems (labyrinthine!) to be real. It was meant to catch the eyes of bloggers — guilty as charged — and not you. [Craigslist]

She’s firing back with a counter-lawsuit against Leighton. And the charges in it are pretty out-there. Read each of them after the jump. Keep reading »
