Hot Gossip: Stephen Jerzak Debuts “She Said” With Help From Leighton Meester
Move over Taylor “Don’t call me Miley!” Momsen! Our favorite Gossip-Girl-turned-pop-star, Leighton Meester, is back at it — this time, teaming up with her newly signed Universal Republic label-mate, the 17-year-old Stephen Jerzak. “She Said” is a club-friendly summer jam complete with all of the essentials: fist-pumping beats, heavy use of Auto-Tune, breathy vocals and silly, Facebook-status-appropriate lyrics (“Everybody knows she’s a looker, but she ain’t quite right”).
But it’s Leighton’s playful, sassy turn on the slightly addicting chorus that’s making us consider “She Said” as our sing-in-the-shower song of the week. Hear it before you go out tonight:

In a post on his MySpace blog, Jerzak all but apologizes for recording a dance track with Leighton (“I can promise you that my album will not be all dancey songs like this – Love Is Strong is 100% acoustic and there’s a ton of tracks that are not dancey at allllll and others that are!”)
