Singing is like acting, right?

When we suggested that Hayden Pantypants from Heroes might not be worth a recording contract simply because she was in a television programme, some commenters angrily pointed out that she'd sung a theme tune or something in the past and as such was like, totally able to make an album.

So, perhaps the reaction to Gossip Girl's gossiping girl Leighton Meester being signed up for a record shouldn't be instant eye-rolling and suggestions that the label involved, Universal imprintTime-Act Music, are so devoid of ideas they've replaced their A&R department with a twelve year-old girl flicking through back issues of Seventeen and stopping at random to decide who'll they'll piss away money on next.
