Taylor Momsen Smokes Cigs, Takes Herself Really Seriously in New ‘Pretty Reckless’ Behind-The-Scenes Video

There’s a new video by NME floating around (click through, it won’t embed) about Taylor Momsen‘s band, The Pretty Reckless, and it’s a must-watch for Taylor fans and haters alike. She drags on a cigarette, looks spiritually dead in nearly every b-roll type shot and there are plenty of close ups of those nasty, ripped up thigh-highs she’s always wearing.

There’s not a whole lot of new information, though. It’s four minutes of Taylor talking endlessly about how much performing means to her (because she’s a rockstar, you know!) and her bandmates saying things like, “People are so shocked by Taylor because she’s clearly so good at it. It’s clearly what she was supposed to do.”

The thing that fascinates me about all of this is that Taylor has a whole career separate from her gig on Gossip Girl, and she doesn’t seem to care about the acting thing at all anymore. In fact, it seems like she’s begging us to forget that she was ever a part of the Hollywood machine. My guess? Taylor’s done with memorizing scripts and playing characters. She’s going to move on from all of that ASAP.

One question, though: Who are all these fans that she and the band keep referring to? Are there actually Pretty Reckless fans out there, because if so, I’m pretty sure that Evanescence did this exact same kind of music like, ten years ago and they didn’t have a bratty teenager as their front woman.
