Gossip Girl to Rock Star
Everyone knows – and loves to hate – Taylor Momsen’s character Jenny on the hit TV show Gossip Girl. But, not everyone knows that Taylor is also a super talented singer and guitarist. While she was working on Gossip Girl Taylor also had dreams of starting her own rock band. After looking for the perfect band mates, Taylor finally formed The Pretty Reckless and they played their first show in May 2009. Since then some of the band members have changed, but their sound and rocker vibe has remained the same.
A Band in the Making
In 2010 the band signed a deal with Interscope Records and released the song “Make Me Wanna Die”. The song appeared in the movie Kick-Ass, and was the band’s first official single. Mid-2010 The Pretty Reckless released their first self-titled EP. On August 31, 2010, they released their first full album called Light Me Up, which was met with better reviews than the EP. That summer, the band also played Warped Tour.
In 2012, The Pretty Reckless released their second EP, titled Hit Me Like a Man, and went on their second tour. They also got a song (“Only You” on the soundtrack for the movie Frankenweenie! On December 11, the band’s newest single, called “Kill Me” premiered on the final episode of Gossip Girl.
