Taylor Momsen, ‘I Was Thrown Into Acting’

taylor-momsen-carries-knife


Taylor Momsen‘s updated BIO. Listen to The Pretty Reckless‘ EP HERE! ‘I didn’t choose acting or modeling, I got thrown into it. I liked it, so that wasn’t a problem, but music and songwriting are what I’ve always really wanted to do. I’ve been working with producers and hanging out in recording studios since I was five, I just couldn’t put out an album when I was eight. Now I can.’

Light Me Up is an honest chronicle of Taylor’s experiences, filtered through her unique point of view: ‘The record is about life. It covers everything: love, death, and music itself. It’s rock and roll. It’s sex. It’s drugs. It’s religion. It’s politics. Each song tells a story about the trials and tribulations and emotional struggles that I’ve experienced or observed.

It’s not a happy pop record, but it’s not Satan-worshiping either. The lyrics aren’t meant to be taken literally, they are open to interpretation. I’m not just writing something because I think people might like it. I hope they do, but I’m writing it because I have something to say. So many feelings go into the lyrics that it’s hard to explain what they’re about.

Taylor’s bandmate: ‘Her voice was astonishing. So many artists these days let their voices be discombobulated by computers. Taylor doesn’t do that. She doesn’t need to. She can walk into a room and kick your ass.’

    eh,i don’t really like her, she’s another Kirsten Stewart that doesn’t give a shit but at last Kirsten does it naturally.

    Taylor Momsen should stop being ungrateful. She didnt used to be like this and theres a difference between mature and age. Mature she is not.

  • shamelesss

    i like her, her style and her music but i think she sometimes says what she thinks will come across as cool and fit with her image though, she should embrace her own personality more instead of trying to be her idols john lennon, kurt cobain, robert plant etc.

    Thrown into acting? Didn’t she say in teen vogue she chose to be an actress? She’s the Queen of Contradiction

    she makes these things up as she goes along.

    I can’t see why people hate her…
    I mean she’s a good actress, an amazing musician and doesn’t care about what people say about her. She’s never said anything about being a rolemodel or “pure”. She’s just herself and if people don’t like her she doesnt give a damn. The hate she gets isn’t even making sense

    Her music is amazing! And I like the fact that she doesn’t pretend to be all “pure” and sexless the way Disney stars pretend to be. She’s real!

    Miley might be a year older, but miley wasn’t exactly on a show where all the characters were getting drunk and sleeping with each other…

    she’s 16 my god. and all of people are saying miley is a slut or what when she’s really not..this girl is the real whore..though shes pretty cant she you know stop wearing that clothes and smoking..miley does wear some things close to that but just for her concert not on her daily life and all her guestings..taylor what the hell is with you??!!

    Yep, she copied the style of trash. I think she should have gone with a different one. BTW, Miley’s “Can’t be tamed” is for her job, where as this girl who is YOUNGER then Miley wears slutty very short skirts & garters while walking down the street. It’s trashy …

    well said!!

    I didn’t like her personality at first but you can’t not like an artist until you listen to their music and judge them on that and I love her music, and I like that she trying to find herself in it and be who she wants to be… even if sometimes it seems forced/overdone

    Sometimes her attitude pisses people off (trust me, I understand) but liked she said in many interviews, she’s no role model and if she wants to express herself in that light then I think she has the right to. (:

    Aw… poor Taylor got forced into acting in a popular show that gave her money and fame. :( I’m sitting here crying for her. Her life sucks. WAHHHHHHHH.

    STFU AND GET OUT OF HOLLYWOOD. I used to like her, but she is disgusting now. And there is a major difference between the way she and Miley dress, in my eyes. Miley’s clothes may be a little bit slutty, but she’s also older (and yes a year or two makes a BIG difference) and at least she always looks CLEAN. Taylor Momsen wears way too much makeup and looks dirty at all time. She is ungrateful for everything that has happened to her. Truth is, if she’d never acted, her band wouldn’t have any followers at all.

    Where are her parents???

  • greengrapes

    am I the only one who thinks her and Miley look/act exactly the same, just one is blonde and one is brunette. SERIOUSLY! the way they dress, their hair! they’re the same person.

  • _liesyoutold

    She can walk into a room and kick your ass.

    i love her.

    She chose to be in the limelight by doing music and acting and such, so she is a role model whether she likes it or not. She should be able to dress and act how she wants to but there should also be limits as to what is age appropriate. What kind of parents allow their child to smoke at age 15? I mean honestly…? And if she doesn’t like the attention and doesn’t like to be a role model, then she should leave Hollywood. Her music is good, but she won’t be missed.

  • beibsoulmate

    shes a mess i like her, reminds me of keisha

  • ImNotAnnoying3.0

    I don’t care what she wears, but she apparently does not give a shit about anything so if she doesn’t maybe she shouldn’t act or sing….she is just so stupid…I liked her before she became a mess….

  • laura

    love her.

  • sexxynickj

    She looks dirty. just sayin….

  • ImNotAnnoying3.0

    Jesus…this girl needs HELP…

  • Claire Attard

    It’s called a style. Does Miley need help because she’s grown mature now? Cos she “can’t be tamed”? It’s her style, and everybody should leave her alone and respect her the way she is. Jeez!

  • aNnA_

    i don’t think she was necassarily contradicting herself…. she’s said she was “thrown into” acting, but she liked it, so she therefor chose to stick with it.

    i used to like taylor when she was normal/just kind of becoming like how he is now. then she got super annoying. like severely. she doesn’t give a shitt about anything and not in a good way like some people. in interviews she just puts off everything and spews her favorite line

    It’s rock and roll. It’s sex. It’s drugs. It’s religion. It’s politics.

    like baby, you’re not old enough to participate in most of that. ha. anyways, at bamboozle she just kept cursing and taking off her clothes. i’m sick of her whatever, but i still like her music.

  • Chelsea-Rose

    You poor thing. Giving an interview in your thousand dollar boots with your thousand dollar extensions – whilst travelling all over the world promoting something you’re forced to do.

    seriously! miley can become “mature” and dress more sexy but taylor can’t? taylor isn’t the one attached to being pure and innocent, pretty much the opposite. so i see no problem with taylor dressing like that.

  • TEENIE IN DISGUISE

    I like her. Her music isn’t bad at all.
