Taylor Momsen Leaving Gossip Girl

May 10, 2011 09:21 AM

momsen230.jpgTaylor Momsen will have to be content with troublemaking off screen, apparently.

The actress and her co-star Jessica Szohr will no longer star on the CW's Gossip Girl, TVLine reports.

Momsen played Jenny and Szohr played Vanessa. Momsen had made it quite clear in past interviews that she wants to focus on her music (the 17-year-old fronts The Pretty Reckless) and her on-set antics have made headlines. Tim Gunn guest starred on the show in November and called Momsen a "diva" and "a brat."

Gossip Girl is coming up on its fifth season. The show's core cast -- Blake Lively (Serena), Leighton Meester (Blair), Penn Badgley (Dan), Ed Westwick (Chuck) and Chace Crawford (Nate) -- will all be back in the fall.

In addition - one star will be promoted to series regular status and become a main character on the show. See who after the jump!

At least she's always nice enough to wave to her fans!

Former Gossip Girl starlet turned gothic pop tart Taylor Momsen put on her most demure outfit while touring Paris on Friday - the Pretty Reckless singer performed a showcase at the Fnac Champs-Elysees last night.

In a recent interview with PopEater, Taylor insisted that "music needs danger, it needs that risk."

She also says the following about her controversial image: "I don't have control over what people are going to write and it's always going to be part of it. But fashion, music... it all comes together. Tabloids are going to focus on my shoes and not my music, that's just what they do."

Check out a short vid of Taylor being interviewed below the jump!

Report: Simon Cowell Considering Taylor Momsen For X Factor Judge

Mar 19, 2011 10:05 AM


Yesterday Simon Cowell announced that record exec/producer L.A. Reid will be joining him at the judges table when X Factor premieres this fall, but now a new report claims that one of the other seats will be filled by none other than controversial Pretty Reckless singer/ex-Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen!

Apparently producers of the hit Brit show think Momsen are attracted to Momsen's "young, hip and edgy” sensibilities, and told Celebuzz they think she'd be perfect for the show.

But Momsen just left her lucrative role on television in order to concentrate on making music and touring with her band. Would she even consider going back now right when her music career is really taking off?

Other names mentioned to fill one of the spots next to Simon are Paula Abdul, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.

Taylor Momsen Gets Booed After Mistaking Scotland For England

Dec 20, 2010 12:32 PM

momsenoops.jpgTaylor Momsen performed in Glasgow with The Pretty Reckless the other night, but rather than hundreds of enthusiastic fans screaming for their favorite eyeliner enthusiast, the 17-year-old actress/rocker got booed!

Momsen told the audience they were "the craziest crowd in the whole of England," but she didn't realize until after the set that Glasgow was actually in Scotland. Whoops! A few hours later T-Mom tweeted, "Glasgow, I love you, I now HAVE to tour SCOTLAND (haha, sorry bout the slip up!)," but her fans are still pretty pissed about the incident.

One fan told The Daily Record, "I think she needs to go back to school for geography lessons. There really isn't any excuse. Surely someone backstage could have said something to her." Oh dear!
