Taylor Momsen quits acting, focuses on music

Bring on the music!

Taylor Momsen has decided that acting is in her past for now and the 18 year old singer wants to focus on her music career with her band ‘Pretty Wreckless’.

Momsen recently spoke about her love for music and her reasoning behind quitting the hit television show ‘Gossip Girl’.  She said;

“I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band. That’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully, I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.”

Last November Taylor went on an “indefinite hiatus” from ‘Gossip Girl’ and there was speculation that it was because of her shocking wardrobe and her inability to keep her language clean during interviews.  In May it was confirmed that Momsen would no longer be cast in the CW show as Jenny Humphrey.

In April Momsen talked about her music career, saying; “[Music] is all I ever wanted to do with my life. 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.”

All the best with your new endeavors Taylor!
