Taylor Momsen: I've Quit Acting

by at . Comments

Those hoping for the eventual return of Taylor Momsen to Gossip Girl may not want to hold their breath. The 18-year-old says she's done with acting for good.

"I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band," she told Elle. That's pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully, I'll be able to only do it for the rest of my life."

In November, Momsen began an "indefinite hiatus" from Gossip Girl amid her busy music schedule, plus numerous shocking wardrobe choices and interviews.

In May, the CW confirmed that this coming season, she would not be reprising her role as Jenny Humphrey. Jessica Szohr will also not be back Vanessa Abrams.

As far as Momsen's concerned, that's all good with her: "Music is all I ever wanted to do with my life," she says. "I've dreamed of wanting to make records and tour."

"It's very exciting that our first record is coming out and people can actually hear it."

While you can never rule out a cameo appearance, it doesn't seem like any storyline involving Little J is in the cards. She'll be missed, but we wish her the best!

NOO...Taylor Momsen did a very great job portraying Jenny Humphrey. And I hope they cast a new actress instead of killing one of its main character off.
As for Taylor, good luck hun with your music and everything. You were great as an actress and as well as a musician.

I am really sad ! Jenny was a great character ! Her struggle to remain true to her roots while becoming an upper east-sider was amazing to watch.

I may have joked about Raccoon girl, but the character of Jenny is sorely missed. Oh well, that pretty much ends the whole Nate/Jenny pairing (what a cruel joke).

They can always look for another actress to play Jenny if they want XD

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

Gossip Girl

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
