Taylor Momsen: 'I See Myself As Totally Insane'

Taylor Momsen takes a cancer stick break in between filming scenes for Gossip Girl on Monday (October 18) in New York City.

The 17-year-old actress and Pretty Reckless singer was also spotted with co-star Matthew Settle, who plays her dad on the CW show.

Taylor recently chatted with Bullett Magazine about her music career and life on the road.

“Well on stage, I’m performing. It’s another extension of myself. I mean, I don’t walk out of my bedroom in the morning with stripper heels on,” she said.

“I see myself as totally insane,” she added. “I’m totally moody. Of course. And I’m totally out of my mind. And I’m always myself.”

    i think she needs a word other than ‘totally’ in her vocabulary, and to talk a little less- TMI is characteristic Courtney Love, who she apparently is nothing like.

  • mandy

    underage kid is smoking beside matthew. and even matthew couldnt do anything to stop her. she is total trainwreck. and yes you are insane.

  • Dan

    @mandy: Not a huge deal, as long as she isn’t doing anything worse. Not trying to defend her, just that smoking for an actress/singer isn’t uncommon.

  • linda

    @Dan: it not uncommon but for her age it is.

  • Ash

    She’s so hardcore man.

  • r

    She’s trying way to hard to come of as if she isnt trying.

  • Whatever

    Why is she back on the show? WHY?
    The show was going good without her.

  • CNXY

    Hahaha, cancer stick. You crack me up JJ

  • Jasmine

    My, isn’t she special…moody and edgy and “totally insane.” LIKE TOTALLY RAD.
    I hope she knows every damn girl between the age of 12-20 thinks and act as obnoxious and as retarded as she does. Girl thinks too much of herself.

  • Botox Melbourne

    At least she’s honest

  • commonsense

    @Botox Melbourne: Yes, she’s honestly CHILDISH!

  • Dan

    @linda: Uncommon for her age, not really. The public seems to be doing worse things by the age of 14.

  • Belac

    Is there anyone on the planet more annoying and pretentious than this brat?

    It’s a shame no one is willing to tell her to her face that she’s a slutty,annoying, pretentious wannabe.

  • Mariana

    what happened to her??? She was so cute and pretty before!! Now is just disgusting! Stripper wheels???? Really?????

  • Hannah

    Her and Kristen Stewart should pair up. Both are wannabes.

  • growup, so boring!

    she’s trying so hard to be edgy and rock and roll. It’s ridiculous and the only people who would find her so would have to under 17. Please she lives a privileged life by most standards.
    she’s needs to get over herself and accept her lot or pack it in and truly go hardcore and try and make a living just off her band.

    Actually there are so many younger kids hay started smoking when they were 11, I know someone who lost their viriginity when they were twelve,’were not friends but everyone knew about it, and there’s kids in my school that are already hooked on drugs… And I’m 14, smoking for her age isn’t weird, I don’t smoke but I don’t like judging people because of that, unless they’re druggies, I also know kids that get hammered every weekend, I’m kind of inspired by Taylor to be myself and to not pretend to be someone I’m not:)

  • Ana

    Oh Taylor, that’s because you ARE totally insane. Did the news just get to you?

    She needs to get over herself. She’s not that edgy or cool as she wants to believe.

  • natalie

    the fact that she sees herself as insane proves that she is ‘totally’ fake.

  • viesa

    and you put this underage smoker on JJ, but Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on JJr. Did smoking automatically makes you older age? Agreed with #7

  • Anna


    it’s actually not uncommon at all for kids her age to smoke. trust me, i’ve lived in a couple of states, and especially where i live right now, teens my age, younger, and older, are smokers.

  • josephine

    riiiiight, and you’re also trying too hard

  • muhgenta

    poor girl

  • reebs

    @Anna: true. most smokers start when they are teenagers. i started smoking when i was 16 and now finally quit six years later after struggling with it.

  • John31

    I seen people smoke when they are 17, but isn’t this girl suppose to be a role model. This girl is nuts lol

  • Sgt Friday

    Taylor, that last sentence of yours was missing a word: into. Yes, we know you’re always into yourself.

    Once Gossip Girl goes down the drain, she will too.

  • rock n roll queen

    um since when smoking at 17 became uncommon?starting smoking when ur an udult is uncommon.most smokers started when they were teenagers and actually younger than 17.and i dont get all this prejudice around smokers.sure its a completely unhealthy habbit,but its not like they have commited a crime and have to hide it.also,being of younger age doesnt make u a worse person than udult smokers or less good person than other teen non smokers .i dont get how a teens goodness of character depends on if they r smoking or not

  • Amazed

    Why oh why is this obnoxious brat being given all this attention????

  • TeamD

    I agree with Anna .. In norway most of the kids smoke and they are 16 or even younger .. and Im sure its the same in the US. I personally like Taylor momsen .. I dont agree with her behaviors but I think she’s got talent and I just like her <3

  • sash

    This kid needs a swift kick in the ass.

  • CaroleS

    If I looked this hot in boots, I’d wear them every day and never take them off.

  • mary

    I am 16 and i have smoke and most of my friends smoke i dont think is that big of a deal and i think shes annoying but come on i think miley is far more of a horrible example to kids shes always pretending to be nice and then saying she cant be tamed ..

  • julie

    It’s called the rebellious teen years. There is nothing unusual about her. She just has lots more money to spend than most girls her age and she wants to smell and taste like a smoke stack. She is a wannabe rocker, bad, adult, but she is none of those. Will have to see what she is like 10 years from now. The next L. Lohan?

  • Kate

    I wonder if she knows that nobody actually views her as the person she tries to be….she’s one of the biggest jokes in Hollywood.

  • Gilmore

    Uhh! She’s so fustrating! Making all of us teenagers sound like bratty, whiny a-holes. I feel like, apologizing to every adult who has to endure the torture and headaches she causes because not all of us are that immature sure we are still learning but man.. it gives us a bad rep. I know people change all the time but it wasn’t that long ago when that ‘hardcore’ rockstar was a bubby and actually likeable girl.

  • LABN


    Note to all haters of celebrities: YOU’RE PATHETIC!

    Dude why don’t ya just back off and leave Kristen alone. Kristen and Taylor are both awesome in their own ways, you’re just jealous.

    Take a look at yourself, maybe you’re a wannabe yourself. What are you, Hannah Montana?

  • linda

    EVERYONE very true but dont forget she is famous girls DO look up to her whether she likes it or not.

  • Kailey

    uhhh isn’t it illegal to smoke if you’re younger than 18?? why hasn’t she been arrested??!

  • Kaylee Alwan

    Hi there, I found your blog via Google while searching for a related topic, your website came up, it looks good. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  • Lenny Schwery

    Thanks for your posting on this site. From my own experience, there are occassions when softening way up a photograph might provide the photo shooter with a dose of an creative flare. Many times however, this soft cloud isn’t precisely what you had under consideration and can usually spoil a normally good image, especially if you thinking about enlarging the item.
