Taylor Momsen Blames Her Parents For Miserable Childhood & Says She Was Forced To Work — Do You Agree?

Sat, November 13, 2010 12:06pm EDT by 12 Comments

She may seem angry and angst ridden all the time, but Taylor has a good excuse — her parents made her start working at 2-years-old!

Most 17-year-old girls have a part time job at a restaurant or maybe a local store, but Taylor Momsen is the star of the hugely popular Gossip Girl and lead singer for The Pretty Reckless — and she’s been at it for 15 years! Taylor told the December issue of Revolver, “”Everyone’s like, ‘Wow, why is she upset, and why is she so miserable about things?’ … My parents signed me up with Ford [Modeling Agency] at the age of 2. No 2-year-old wants to be working, but I had no choice.” She makes a good point!

Taylor goes on to say, “”My whole life, I was in and out of school … I didn’t have friends. I was working constantly and I didn’t have a real life.”

Many teen stars come to their parents defense when questioned over their motives, but not Taylor! No matter how angry and miserable she may seem though, there is no doubt this is one incredibly hard working young woman!

What do you think about Taylor’s comments? Are you glad a teen star finally placed some blame on their parents?

Boo fricken hoo! Blame your parents for setting you up with the amazing acting/singing career you have now. Your an idiot! You should be working a 9-5 in this drab economy like me and you’d really be miserable you spoiled brat! You should be kissing your parents A$$es!

I have to question any parent who makes money off their children. We work the majority of our lives. Give kids some time to experience a normal secure and worry free childhood if at all possible.

They did not make money off Taylor! Her father is a successful businessman in his own right and was very protective of Taylor’s money.

Money was not the issue…Children have the right to a carefree childhood, it doesn’t last long

Well Duh! This girl is waaaay to young to have gotten as messed up as she is all by her self.if she was like 25…then it would be like, yeah yeah, you hate your parents, grow up and move on. But she is still a kid. And her PARENTS she still be looking out for her best interest..which, clearly just by the sight of her in this picture, they are not.
