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!
