Are you tired of everyone telling you you’re too young to be taking seriously?

Taylor Momsen says she’s sick of people reminding her that she’s only 16!  The Gossip Girl actress and rocker told Seventeen magazine, “I think people don’t really take me seriously because I’m 16. And they think most 16-year-olds don’t know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I’ve been thinking about it since I was [two-years-old].”

And just like most teenagers, Taylor admits, “I am angsty. I’ll be angsty until I’m 80 years old. I think that keeps things fresh. But I always think angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers. It just means you’re figuring s*** out, and I don’t know why that’s a negative thing.”

As the lead singer of her band The Pretty Wreckless, Taylor admits, “I love working. I’m a workaholic, and no one believes it. I’m in the recording studio until three in the morning.”

Taylor, we’ve all been there!  Have you ever worked hard to live your dream, only to have people tell you that you’re too young to be taken seriously?  —Corynne Steindler
