Taylor Momsen Loves Having Music Control

Taylor Momsen doesn't understand how some people can sing songs penned by record companies.

Taylor Momsen says appearing on a TV talent show would have "destroyed" her.

The 16-year-old is well known for her part as Jenny Humphrey in US drama Gossip Girl, and also fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless. She loves music and singing, but insists she would never have tried out for a show like American Idol or The X Factor as she would have hated it.

"I doubt I would have done one of those shows, because I'm involved in everything, am too opinionated and care too much to hand over control," she explained. "I have to have my say, so a show like that would probably have destroyed me. I can't face the world with a record that isn't totally me and that I'm not totally confident with, because my music is who I am."

Taylor says she is different to a lot of artists because she writes all her own songs and is involved with every aspect of her career. She doesn't understand how some people can sing tracks penned by others, as she has to feel the emotions to make it sound believable.?"You're hearing my voice and my words," she told Company magazine. "People who have a label writing their songs and telling them how to dress are doing it for fame and money. I think that's bad."
