Taylor Momsen Is Pretty Reckless At The Annex

Taylor Momsen Is Pretty Reckless At The Annex

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless rocked out the stage at hipster hot spot the Annex in New York’s Lower East Side on Tuesday night (May 5).

Concertgoer Rachel Sklar described, “I quite liked the speed and sound of their stuff, and Momsen can sing – she belts it out with a rough scratchy punk-rock voice that had a Courtney Love/Kim Carnes/Alannah Myles/Gwen Stefani/Hedwig feel. Plus good energy and presence, especially when you remember that she’s freaking SIXTEEN.”

    um, all you people saying she sucks and whaever are just jealous freaks. she’s on a successful show and apparently has a decent band and she’s fifteen! i say more power to her for being that fearless. she sounds pretty good here and i agree with the others who have said it’s stupid to compare her and leighton, i mean, they’re doing two entirely different styles of music and for different musical styles– shocker– different vocal styles are required. also, how much older is leighton than taylor? seven years or so? seven years= much more time for her to develop her voice. with the amount of acting talent and musical chops this girl has at fifteen, geez, as long as she doesn’t burn out (which, i admit, is unfortunately likely), she could have the world at her feet by twenty two.

    this girl is going to make lindsey lohan look like meryl streep…I see a future with DUIs, arrests, rehab and tv movies, if that. she looks like the love child of courtney love and dana plato…if she was still alive…
    someone needs to tell her that “rebelling” was so 2004, ho needs to clean that crap off her face, stick to acting, stop the singing and the partying and grow the f up.

    her clothes are hidious, and her hair is terrible, she should look 16 not 36 with 5 children and 4 ex husbands, and a meth problem.

    Jessica Says:

    gosh, that picture of her in the top right is terrible. She looks so washed out and frankly, she looks like a wannabe drug addict. What is with that awful make-up? The eyeliner under her eyes looks like a middle schooler’s who is just starting to experiment with make-up.

    I think for someone with not a lot of experience she sounds pretty good! Thank god it is nothing like poptarts Spears or others in that category…..I like her and hope she does well and doesn’t fall into the trap that the other young stars do. Hopefully she can get past all that and not get too far under….

    So weird, i never expected that kind of music, i thought it was just her look (clothes)…

    I like the song. She doesn’t have a great voice but it’s ok.

    Amanda Says:

    whoa..who knew that voice came out of her.
    I’m surprised..she is actually quite good.!

    So is Leighton, when i first heard her in Drive Thru [movie]
    i was amazed…she has a very rocker voice aswell.

    vannie Says:

    She’s pretty good! But she does look older than her age!

    Lindsey Says:

    I actually think she has a good voice. I remember how cute she was when she sang in the movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Not quite the same thing, but she has obviously been able to sing since she was little.

    I do have to agree that if what you read about her in all the tabloids ends up being true, she may just be a wreck waiting to happen. Out of all the young actors from GG, I think Taylor has the best chance of becoming a drug addict of some type… and I’m not talking weed!!

    Angel Says:

    She’s really good! She has a powerful voice and she’s only 16 people! give her a break!

    I like this. good rock voice!

    Tralalalala Says:

    She’s trying way too hard with the “edgy rock-girl” schtik which is meant to distract the listener from her awful voice and the fact that the song itself is crap. Why do so many young actresses think they can be singers? Isn’t one job enough for your teens and early 20′s? IMO, unless an actor is also a gifted vocalist, they shouldn’t even try the music career because putting out a mediocre product, as a musician, just cheapens your whole appeal. In a way, it tarnishes your reputation as an actor. Look at ScarJo…beautiful woman, talented actress, terrible vocalist. After hearing some cuts off her album, her acting work, for me, is ruined forever.

    people who think, she’s “trying” to hard to be rock are stupid
    every rocker is trying to be rock
    yoú’re not born a “rocker” whatever that means
    she loves rock and she can sing
    maybe she loves that grunge look, there’s nothing wrong with that
    i like her better as a singer

    I adore her. Seriously she has a courtney love in the 90′s feel to her. I love this.

    shes freaking amazing and i love that shes out of the ordinary, teenie-bopper crap. people need to stop criticizing her on her style because its great that shes different than all the other teen stars. keep doing your thing taylor!

    Mini-Courtney Love everyone! How 1994 of her.

    a.j. Says:

    She’s fifteen! FIFTEEN! No fifteen year old should be dressing like that. There’s plenty of time for those kind of clothes when she gets older.

    I mean, is it some cover or something she wrote?
