Ryan Gosling To Record Album, As Actors Are Wont To Do

Ryan Gosling is going to record an album? Like a musical album? Someone’s becoming a regular Leighton Meester over here. From People:

Ryan Gosling already moonlights as a deejay – and now the actor is taking another step toward a music career. He’s releasing an album.

Just don’t expect him to go pop.

Uh, I won’t?

“What is this album, I was expecting him to go pop.” “Well you shouldn’t have expected that, didn’t you read People magazine.” “Valuable lesson learned.” That is you talking to your dad about the new Ryan Gosling album. Your dad is a real People Magazine Head.

Pitchfork has an interview with Gosling and he describes his artistic vision this way:

“You know when you’re a kid and you get crayons and papers and just draw whatever you want and it’s just a bunch of messy lines, but to you it makes sense, and then they put it on the fridge? From that point on, you’re always trying to get back on the fridge, you start drawing things that look like something, like, the more it looks like a horse, the more chance you have of getting it on the fridge. We wanted to get back to that place before we were trying to make the fridge. We wanted to work with people who hadn’t been affected in that way yet.”

OK, guys, the search is over. We have found our white Terrence Howard. (Finally. You know, that search we were all on.) Ryan Gosling, put down that guitar/bong and move my couch!
