Jenny's career ambitions go to a new level in Gossip Girl Season 2 Episode 8 Read on for our review.


I really liked the last video. I felt like it was such an authentic performance and the connection she had with the other person was so refreshing. Her voice also seems to match the Country genre a lot so it's good that she got this role. She's great!


i loved her performance. and the country thing is cool too. good for leighton, a legit role in a legit movie.


The last performance was really good! I really liked it. It was really intense too. They were staring at eachother the whole time while singing.


Taylor > Leighton


wowwwwwwwwwwwwww... beautiful voice... i hope she becomes very successful. she's sooooooo talented.


wow. in the last video they sound really nice together. Meester's voice is so delicate. she kinda suits to this type of music. i must admit i never fully appreciated her music. i preferd ed's, as being less pop-like and not so um, to everyone's taste. that's really a shame that he had to give up his music career.
and then our sweet little Taylor, who is actually making an international career. and her piece Make me wanna die is known world wide. and you may listen to it in the radio. so wow for her.
so this movie may bring some benefits to Meester and will help her music career.
