I know, I know, I was super worried about it too, that when Taylor Momsen finally turned 18, she would stop being so dark and intense, and instead of doing things like f*cking for Satan she would pick up knitting or turn into a cat lady. But we have no cause for all that worry, because darling Taylor just did an interview with Elle, and she’s still our little angel!
On her impeccable fashion sense: Honestly, most of my clothes I’ve had for a long time, or a lot of it is vintage and I modify it and change it. So I kind of wear the same things over and over, variations of them. Along the way [on tour I might] buy something cool; if not, I’ve got a plethora of versions of the same things.
What she brings on tour: I tend not to bring a lot. [Just] a lot of black eyeshadow, and dry shampoo because a lot of the time you don’t have time to wash your hair or shower, it’s very chaotic. So black eyeshadow and dry shampoo and I’m good to go. I love the Bed Head black eyeshadow. If I can’t find it, whatever works, whatever is the blackest eyeshadow I can find.
When asked if she prefers writing, recording, or performing music: I love it all. They’re all very different: Writing is a very tortuous process, but, you know, I would say one of the most rewarding at the end; I love recording, it’s a completely different mindset from being on tour. But anytime you have an opportunity to play music, whether it’s in the studio or on the road, it’s the best thing in the world.
On acting: I quit acting, actually. I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band and that’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.
Oh, Taylor. Words cannot describe what you mean to me.
