Taylor Momsen Retires From Acting

by at . Comments

Taylor Momsen just turned 18.

That's still extremely young, but the Pretty Reckless singer told Elle magazine that she has "quit acting" and wants to focus solely on her music career:

"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."

Momsen Live

In November, Momsen began an "indefinite hiatus" from Gossip Girl amid numerous headlines about her shocking wardrobe and interviews.

In May, the CW confirmed that next season, she would not reprise her role as Jenny Humphrey. Jessica Szohr is also gone as Vanessa Abrams.

As far as Momsen's concerned, it's all good with her plans.

"[Music] is all I ever wanted to do with my life," she says.

"I've dreamed of wanting to make records and tour, so it's very exciting that our first record is coming out and people can actually hear it."

I hope Taylor gets back to acting before her "acting star" burns out. She is not going to make it as a ROCK STAR. I'm sure her parents tried to reason with her. Unfortunateley, once she turned 18, it was out of their hands. She's young and does not yet understand priorities or decisions that will shape her future, or lack of. "FAILURE" is stamped all over her latest endevor. Negative? Call it what you want. Her true talents belong on the big screen. rbrowncloud
