Leighton Meester can really sing. The Gossip Girl star is teaming up with singer Dana Williams for a new cover of Fleetwood Mac's '70s classic "Dreams."

Their rendition is downright dreamy in its own right. Take a listen:

Safe to say she has left Blair Waldorf behind for good at this point.

The 27-year-old, who made her Broadway debut last week during the latest adaptation of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, is quite a versatile talent.

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody married back in February.

The cute couple kept the news under wraps, private people that they are, but we couldn't be happier for them, or more excited that she's making more music.

What do you think of Leighton's latest song? Listen to her 2011 performance in Country Strong, as well as her 2009 hit with Cobra Starship, after the jump ...

Perhaps having learned to keep secrets from her six seasons on the CW's Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester has dropped a major one on fans today:

She's married to Adam Brody!

Indeed, just three months after Meester and Brody confirmed their engagement, sources tell Us Weekly that the adorable couple exchanged vows this weekend.

In a hush-hush ceremony, the former OC star and the beloved Blair Waldorf's alter ego tied the knot after a little over a year of dating.

A new report indicates that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody just got engaged, which is either a tabloid's version of fan fiction or the greatest news ever.

At least if you're a fan of teen dramas that started off so promisingly and then declined precipitously in later seasons, but still hold a place in your heart.

According to Star Magazine, the couple of 10 months is heading to the altar after the former Gossip Girl star accepted The OC star's surprise proposal.

“Leighton and Adam are crazy about each other and have talked about getting married eventually,” an insider says. “But she had no idea he would propose!"

"It was the surprise of her life and she’s absolutely ecstatic!”

Leighton Meester covers the new issue of Lucky Magazine.

In it, the 26-year-old star of That’s My Boy and Gossip Girl talks about her rise to fame, her personal style, and the impending end of the CW hit that made her a star.

Excerpts and photos from her interview appear below:

On whether she thought she would be successful: “I don’t know. Yes? You can’t count on success in this business. But anyway, being famous or rich or making a certain kind of movie – none of that means ‘success’ to me."

"Success to me is being happy and fulfilled, truly fulfilled, and being proud of myself and doing different things all the time. So thus far, yes, I’ve been successful.”

On how Gossip Girl changed her style: “My friend says that before the show I dressed like a homeless person. I used to buy everything at garage sales. It was hard to give up! I’d be like, ‘But this crazy sweater is amazing, and it only cost 25 cents!’"

"I’ve learned from Blair, though. Now I like to pepper in some designer stuff.”

On her makeup routine: “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!”

On love: “I love love. It’s the most intriguing universally understood emotion, and it comes in so many forms: family love, love of friends. I fall in love with everybody all the time.”

Kate Middleton was dubbed the "People's Princess" earlier this year when she became the first commoner to marry an heir to the British throne in centuries.

On Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) is getting ready to do the same on January 30, as she is engaged to Louis, the Prince of Monaco.

Meester was seen on the street filming in her wedding dress ... a runaway bride perhaps? Or filming a dream sequence? Impossible to say for another two months.

What you can say now is whether Gossip Girl fashion compares to the real deal! Whose wedding dress do you like better, Kate's or Blair's? Vote below!

One hundred episodes of drama, scandal, snark and Gossip Girl fashion.

January 30 marks the 100th installment of the CW hit we know and love, and on Saturday night, the cast celebrated the completion of its filming with a red carpet event at Cipriani Wall Street in New York. It was, as expected, a stylish affair.

In addition to their male co-stars, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were on hand, albeit a few hours late, leaving the cameras breathlessly awaiting their arrival. Both stars were a bit under-dressed for the cold weather ... but looked fabulous.

Who looked the most fabulous, though? Vote in our Fashion Face-Off!

Jessica Szohr may have no shot in this one. Leighton Meester's a strong competitor, and, well ... she's channeling Gothic Barbie a little too much for our taste.

You be the judge, though. As you can see, she donned oversized shorts and a drapey silk cardigan and platforms at a fashionable Maybelline New York event.

Her Gossip Girl co-star, meanwhile, opted for the high fashion route in a color block Giambattista Valli dress with a draped front at NYC's Cipriani Wall Street.

Which Gossip Girl star's style do you prefer?

What's an NYU girl to do when she needs to impress her loyal subjects into anointing her queen? Well, getting Lady Gaga to play a private show would help!

That’s what Blair (Leighton Meester) does in an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl November 16. The pop star just filmed her performance on the CW drama.

Gaga will be performing her new single, “Bad Romance.”

“My little sister is the hugest Gossip Girl fan ever,” the dance-pop songstress, who joins Hilary Duff and Tyra Banks as guest stars this season, told People.

Many of the series' fans feel like it's been selling out a bit with the high-profile cameos and characters, but we doubt there will be much opposition to this.

Word has it that the show's all-knowing blogger/narrator voiced by Kristen Bell will post a rumor about Gaga being a hermaphrodite. Just kidding. Probably.

Despite barely scraping together three million viewers a week, Gossip Girl has become arguably the most talked-about, culturally relevant series on television.

It's also going to have about three million sets of parents up in arms and shaking their heads once this round of photos from Rolling Stone starts circulating.

BEST. SHOW. EVER. Does anything else need to be said?

Since only, like, BFFs would eat the same ice cream cone, suck each other's fingers and deep-throat Twizzlers, we assume co-stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester - occasionally rumored to be feuding - are totally cool with each other.

As are we, with them.

If you don't watch the show, and haven't been convinced to by the photo above, Rolling Stone calls the drama "not a conventional TV hit," "sharp and connected to modern life, references, music" and "sexily subversive." Case? Rested.

As the CW readies for a deluge of hate mail from parents of impressionable teens and 'tweens, click to enlarge more pics of the Gossip Girl cast in Rolling Stone ...
