Taylor Momsen: I've Quit Acting

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!

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.
