Taylor Momsen has practically been begging Hollywood to fire her for years. Like a spoiled rich kid who only acts out because the desperately want their parents attention, Momsen has had her fair share of dumb wannabee rock star moments.
Let's list them, why not? She never wears a bra. She gives lap dances to chicks onstage at her shows. She cusses in interviews. She endorses the watching of porn. She told media outlets that her parents were horrible people who forced her into acting. And she wanted to strip completely naked in a graveyard for her bands music video. All this before she even turned 18. Hallelujah. I’m out of breath.
Anyways, Taylor basically decided she was too hardcore for mainstream media and has decided to “quit acting.”
Now that she’s a big girl (18 years old) and the singer of a semi-unknown band called “Pretty Reckless” she’s decided she only wants to pursue her music career.
“I quit “Gossip Girl” and now tour and am in a band,” Momsen tells Elle magazine. “That’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully, I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.” Awwww, all I want to do for the rest of my life is watch youtube videos of cats playing the piano and eat McDonalds, but we can’t all live out our dreams.
Momsen is so naïve and obnoxious, but I’m going to continue talking about her, because I am jealous of how smoky she makes her smoky eye.
Momsen has rarely been seen on Gossip Girl lately. She only appeared in 4 episodes this last season after stating in November that she was going on an “indefinite hiatus” from the show. Then, in May it was confirmed that she would not be returning to the show at all.
Between her wild-child antics and departure from Gossip Girl, her retirement from acting is no surprise.
“[Music] is all I ever wanted to do with my life,” she tells Us Magazine in April, “I wanted to make records and tour, so it’s very exciting that our first record is coming out and people can actually hear it.”
Momsen, who doesn’t ever miss an opportunity to plug her band has even told Nickelodeon, “I’ve been writing songs since I was 5 years old.” Can 5 year olds write? I thought they can only draw pictures of clouds and identify that cats make a “meow” sound?
Moral of the story: Momsen is a brat and we don’t have to see her airbrushed HD face on the CW anymore. Collective happiness all around!!! Yae!
