Taylor Momsen Gets It

by at . Comments

We're not really sure what Taylor Momsen is talking about here, or what her grander point is, but the Gossip Girl star and rocker recently had a realization.

"As you get older you get more insight on everything. I kind of woke up one morning and was like 'Oh I see what's happening, I get everything,'" she said.

"I woke up and was like, 'I get it, I'm a product.'"

TMI Taylor

"Fame just kind of happens overnight. No one can prepare you for it at all. On Gossip Girl, I was just going to work, doing what I've always done."

"Then all of a sudden you're like, 'Woah!' But you get used to it. You ignore it. Because whatever people say about me doesn't bother me at all."

"It doesn't matter if you're in high school or college or at work, someone's not going to like you. It's inevitable. But it doesn't mean anything."

It's good Taylor doesn't take criticism to heart, but do you think she's a bit cynical for 17? She is allowed to be a kid and does control her actions.

Here's Taylor and the Pretty Reckless performing "Make Me Wanna Die" ...

She truly does have talent when it comes to singing, I am not going to deny that. But I feel like she maybe tries to hard to be "insightful." You know? Like, you can tell when someone is spouting philosophy but deep down they know what they're saying is just bullshit. They're saying it to make themselves seem deep and intelligent. I've been there, I've done that, it's not an endearing quality. That being said, I do like how she does her own thing. She's allowed to be grown up at seventeen if she wants to. It's not like her life choices are directly affecting my life.

I'm sorry to inform you all, that in order to qualify as a real "Rock star" you need to be British. The majority of American artists can just NOT do real rock and roll. Sorry but it's the truth.

@katie Her sucky rock band? First of all, "sucky" is not even a word! And come on, her band is awesome! This girl really has talent, got a great voice and a unique way of expressing the lyrics. If you think the music of The Pretty Reckless sucks? Then may be you should check your ears. Probably need to brush up with some music sense. I seriously think that Taylor Momsen is the best rock singer in these years.

It gives me a little purpose. I'm wondering if I haven't taken this far too seriously... yeah probably have lol

Wow Taylor, how did you end up so jaded? I feel like she's way too young to be so pessimistic about life and on the other hand I'm not much older than her and I sometimes feel the same way by which I mean I also feel pessimistic about life from time to time. I wonder what that says? For myself, I like to think maybe there's just some bigger picture I'm not seeing.

Just pointing this out, bras and underwear are like the same thing as bikinis. Girls wear bikinis in public, kids do, teenagers do, adults do. So quit bitchin' and get off her back.

STFU. You are a big ingrate. I get why she's cynical but she just sounds sooo ungrateful. That's what i don't like. If she doesn't like being a "product" they why pray tell doesn't she just quit acting.

Quite simply, you're a bitch

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
