Taylor Momsen: Fame Doesn't Mean A Thing

Taylor Momsen: Fame Doesn't Mean A Thing

Taylor Momsen lets her blond locks flow on the February 2010 cover of Seventeen magazine.

The 16-year-old Gossip Girl actress caught up with the mag to chat about teenage angst, being taken seriously and Lindsay Lohan. Check it:

On people taking her seriously: “I think people don’t really take me seriously because I’m 16. And they think most 16-year-olds don’t know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I’ve been thinking about it since I was 2. And in the world of acting, you have such a stigma put onto you that you [get into this business] for the fame. Fame frankly means nothing. It’s so stupid. Unless you do something great and unless you do something that’s fulfilling to you, what’s the point?”

On people thinking she’s moody: “I am angsty. I’ll be angsty until I’m 80 years old. I think that keeps things fresh. But I always think angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers. It just means you’re figuring s*** out, and I don’t know why that’s a negative thing.”

On just how much she loves working: “I love working. I’m a workaholic, and no one believes it. I’m in the recording studio until three in the morning. I get such a rap for being like Lindsay Lohan – and I hate naming names because she’s really sweet – and I’m really not. I don’t go out. I have no desire to be some tabloid party girl. I’m entirely a loner. I have been my entire life.”

  • nathalia

    there’s something about her that i don’t really like..

  • stella

    I love her. And love jenny. And want her with Nate!

  • EMMA

    Nathalia, i totally agree. I think she thinks she’s some sort of mega star, and people over here in the UK have never even heard of her.

  • cris

    poor Tay! I dont know why everybody hates her… shes just differet! when that became a crime?? anyways! I think shes just being true to herself… at list, the 16 year old one… i like her…. she is confident and everybody on the GG cast love her! so she cant be THAT bad!

  • jenny

    Im a miley fan and get annoyed when people call her a slut so know i think i will show people that miley is nothing look at taylor momsen

  • rock_chic_chick

    she has been thinking about her future since she was 2, is she for real? what frickin 2 year old thinks about their future. she acts as if she is some multi award winning actress but she will forever be remember as the girl from the grinch and jenny from GG.

  • Evie

    She seems really stuck up . . . or just poser-ish. I mean, she can barely play guitar and sing. And I’m not being jealous. BELIEVE me. Lol.

    OMG that is such bs!
    this chick is so fake
    ok sorry honey angsty is not the same thing as s.l.u.t.t.y…i think she got those confused

    i mean what she doesnt want to be seen as a teenager which she is so goes around wearing garter belts in public and trying to seem wise when all she does is sound like…wait for it…a whiny kid

    her music isnt gonna go anywhere her acting i mean lets be honest it sucks isnt gonna go anywhere after GG either i swear i love GG but i will like it way more if she was recasted or something and i usually hate recastings but for this chick ill make an exception

    ugh sorry ive been holding that in for a while i mean yea Miley does stupid stuff but u cant call her a slut without first wanting to slap this chick
    oh and her on Seventeen? Jessica Sore or whatever her name is on Teen Vogue? what Leighton and Blake were too busy actually having careers like movies outside of GG to do a shoot?

  • olivia

    @yo: @jenny: Haha I agree with both of you!!! Everyone says Miley’s a slut but have they even seen this girl? I doubt it.

  • joboots


    Everyone goes into their rebel phase,but that doesn’t mean you
    gotta jump to conclusions,JMO!!!

  • tutti

    I think she s really pretty but looks a bit older than her real age, it s so ….

  • gossipgirlxoxo

    @EMMA: I have and im from the UK ;)

  • StarbucksXO

    @jenny: I like both Miley and Taylor. The main reason people call miley a whore and whatever is because she was in disney and tried to pull away from that disney image and it made her really trashy. But Taylor’s on Gossip Girl, so shes already got that kind of image, not of being trashy but not that innocent girl image. Get it? But im a fan of both anyway, but I hate it when people start taking the piss outta celebs over these posts, if you dont like em, why look on their posts? And im not saying that to you, im saying it to everyone that does that, its pretty pathetic.

  • Emma d.

    I just think she is weird. Just my opinion (:
    Bye Ladies.

    #1 y iz miley even being brought up on an article about some else.#2 people call mileys a slut cuz she iz. I use to like her but then she started to dress like a slut nd act like 1 nd then got away wit stuff bcuz she’s a big star. Nd #3 I don’t see taylor as fake this is probably how she is nd we can’t do anything about it…

    i agree with most of you all are saying here: taylor momsen is wierd.

    i used to like her when i first started watching GG but i think the world of GG has gotten into too much into her head. I hope she knows she’s not the Queen Bee in the real world.

  • Katie

    god you guys are saying so much shit about her and its because of the impressions you have about her, very few comments are about her music or her work… she’s got the chops and her music is really good, she’s like courtney love when she was in her prime. lay off and be happy k? :)

  • itsmeagain

    @jo-li: um, compare Taylor’s To Miley’s style. Who would you rather go dressed as? Miley’s clothes maybe risky at time but she is NOTHING compare to what TAYLOR wears in public. Also, if u think Miley’s bad, at least she’s NOT SMOKING AT THE AGE OF STINKING 16! Does Taylor even know how bad SMOKING can ruin her health??

  • Momsenmania

    I’m a huge Taylor Momsen fan. She keeps getting more and more beautiful and is amazingly talented.
