When Taylor Momsen left Gossip Girl in 2011, she had told Elle Magazine that she was quitting acting to focus on her music career. Despite the original preppy look that Jenny Humphry, her character on GG sported, Taylor Momsen’s music is anything but.
The ex-actress formed a band named The Pretty Reckless that sounds like a mix between The Runaways and The White Stripes. The music is original and combined with the haunting lyrics and Momsen’s chilling voice it makes the band’s name a hard one to forget.
The band released its debut album Light Me Up in 2010 and was followed by The Medicine Tour which hopped all over North America in 2012.
Just recently on Taylor Momsen’s twitter she told her fans “its going to start” and then posted again with a link to a teaser trailer for her new album titled Going to Hell saying “we’re all in this together.” The teaser trailer is so blissfully Taylor Momsen-ish in the sense that it mirrors that of a horror movie sending chills down one’s spine. You can watch the video below. The album has no set release date yet.
