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 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
