It's been little over a month since Jessica Lowndes released the music video for "Silicone in Stereo," the first single from her still-untitled debut album. "I've been waiting for a long time to get new music out," the former 90210 actress, 25, explains to E! News. "The response has been good and I'm just excited."
The music video was directed Frank Flowers. As the L.A.-based singer-songwriter says, it represents her "struggle to stay pure and virtuous in a really crazy town that can often consume you if you're not careful. I think that's where I got the idea for the body paint in the shower. For me, it's cool because I haven't signed a record deal or a label or anything like that, and I look at the video and all my closest friends are in it. My little sister is the one giving people Botox by the pool. Everyone came together."
In a city that's often described as superficial, how does Lowndes stay grounded? "I'm really fortunate to have an awesome family and good friends who surround me," she says. "None of that [partying lifestyle] really appeals to me. Obviously, I've been singing longer than acting, and for the first single, it was kind important to me to kind of put out my thoughts and [have it be] an honest representation of how I feel."
