    Penn Badgley was giving his "Gossip Girl" role as Dan Humphrey a run for his money when he debuted a new look during a performance at Miami's Art Basel.

    The 30-year-old showed off some serious scruff and a blond 'do while he and his band Mothxr performed at the Life of the Party event which was held at the Bricknell City Centre last night.

    Badgley sang several tracks from the band's new album like "Touch," "She Can't Tell" and "Victim."

    And while his musical career is clearly top priority these days, Badgley has made it clear that he hasn't put his acting chops on the back burner, either.

    During a recent interview with Huffington Post, Badgley explained he's still interested in acting but he's a "musical person" at heart and taking his singing skills to the stage has been something he's waited for.

    "This was always an intention of mine...It's not forced. It's not something that I've been incredibly conscious or precious or deliberate about. It was obviously going to happen."
