Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley Buzzes About a Music Career

Look out, Leighton Meester and Taylor Momsen; your Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley is looking to follow in your footsteps and embark on a music career.

Luckily, it’ll be a while before you have to worry about the competition.

“Years from now, maybe you’ll see something [musical from him],” Badgley tells MTV, “but for the moment, it’s something that I don’t [want to do].”

“[M]usic is my first passion, but because of that I don’t really want to just take a first step in the wrong direction,” Badgley adds. “At the moment, I just want to be sensible about what I do. I just write and I play, and that’s all I need for myself right now.”

And what does Penn think of his co-stars’ musical endeavors?

“I haven’t heard any of Taylor’s stuff, but apparently it’s pretty decent,” Badgley notes. “I wish them the best with it. I think it’s awesome that they’re doing that.”

Sure. Until he has to compete with them on the charts.
