Nikki Blonsky recording an album

In between time spent on movie sets and possibly in court, Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky is also hard at work on her first album. “It’s something I really want to nurture,” she told EW.com on the red carpet of Bravo’s A-List Awards (airing tonight), where she was escorted by Project Runway Season 3 contestant Malan Breton. “My album will probably be a mix of Stevie Nicks, Melissa Etheridge, and Sheryl Crow meets a little Linda Eder. You can expect everything from horns to electric guitars, a mix of big band with a bit of rock-n-roll.” Blonsky added that she’s co-writing all of the songs, a laborious process compared to acting. “Unlike a movie, it’s not written for you, so I want to make sure it’s something that really comes from my heart,” she said. “When I’m ready to release it, you bet I’ll be releasing it in style.” – With reporting by Lindsay Soll
