Seventeen February issue cover shoot

Check out these exclusive pics and quotes from Taylor Momsen's Seventeen February issue cover shoot. The Gossip Girl star reveals what she thinks about costar Leighton Meester's music, being a workaholic, and why she doesn't mind when people call her angsty.
"I like to wear a lot of baggy things. Like, I buy guys' clothes, like T-shirts, and I cut them up and wear them loose, but my blazers have to be really fitted. I also like layering things and really short skirts — or showing off my legs."

"I really enjoy English and poetry and writing classes. You do get writer's block when you're writing music, and having inspiration from other great writers is great. You have to look for inspiration because sometimes music isn't the only thing that you can look at."

"I'm not interested in playing the field and all that stuff because frankly I'm not into frivolous relationships. I've got a couple close relationships with friends, a close relationship with my family, and a close relationship with my guitar. I'll know if the right person comes along, and whatever then — cool — but it's not something I'm seeking out at the moment."

"My legs are really long and that's cool apparently, but I'm totally klutzy. I mean, I'm like Bambi. I fall all over myself because I can't control my arms and my really long legs."

"I always have on a little vintage crystal circle necklace, a bunch of bracelets that I wear all the time, my two pinkie rings, and I'm always wearing hoops in my ears — those never come out."

"New York's home. It's everything I'd want it to be. It's the most inspiring city I've ever been to, and I haven't been everywhere in the world, but I've been to quite a few places."

Joan Jett is badass. Blondie's really cool. I listen to Garbage — they've been a big influence on me. But, you know, a lot of what inspires me aren't the lead singers specifically, it's the music, the image, what makes up the whole package.

"It's like the phrase 'Money doesn't buy you happiness,' because it doesn't. Everyone finds it in their own way, and I'm really lucky that I found music early, you know? But, I think in a way that's because of the life that I've lived so far — I was forced."
