Leighton Meester is on the cover of Allure magazine this month. The Gossip Girl star, who opens up about love and other drugs, looks alluring to say the least.

Of her party girl past, renting a North Hollywood place with some friends, she says: “We had craaaazy parties, we had DJ’s, bands, an ice luge, a fire twirler.”

“My roommate burned off her bangs on the stove trying to light a cigarette.”

The fun continued when she moved to New York to start filming Gossip Girl.

“We would go out all the time,” she says. “I’ve never gotten too crazy, but I definitely had experiences. Now, I don’t want to do anything unhealthy for me.”

“Drinking is one thing, overdrinking is another. And drugs are something that I do not tolerate at all. You would be surprised how many people do it.”


“If you go out and you’re living the nightlife scene, that’s what people do.”

Another thing the singer, who split with actor and Gossip Girl recurring guest star Sebastian Stan earlier this year, isn’t a big fan of: playing the field.

“I don’t see the point in dating,” Meester says. “I hate it. It’s wonderful to be in love. It’s wonderful to cuddle and have sex and experience life with somebody.”

“But it’s OK if you don’t find him and you’re 24. You can find it someday.”
