Taylor Momsen on acting: 'People were wrong to think I was crazy for quitting'

Songstress Taylor Momsen, of The Pretty Reckless fame, has revealed that she doesn't miss starring in 'Gossip Girl' because acting isn't what she wanted to pursue in life. 

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the blonde bombshell was asked if she misses being on television and she explained that acting was just a way for her to pay bills as music is her real passion:

"No, not at all. I quit because I finally could just tour in a band, and I got to a place in my life when I had the luxury of doing that. And a lot of people thought I couldn't. I think when I quit acting, everyone thought I was crazy, and now it's three number ones later, so they were wrong."

Momsen went onto add that songwriting is incredibly cathartic and she loves putting pen to paper in order to create something new: "Ever since I was a little kid, I was always singing and jotting down songs and making up things. You write a lot of bad songs before you write good ones. I had to wait until I got a little older till I actually wrote a record's worth of material that I wanted the world to hear. But, no, I started very, very early. It was like therapy to me. Still is."
