Taylor Momsen: "Work is More Important Than Partying"

Taylor Momsen

TAYLOR Momsen is no party animal!

The Gossip Girl actress — who also fronts a band, The Pretty Reckless, as well as starring in the hit U.S. TV show — says she “cares too much” about her job to hit the town every night.

“I care too much about my job,” said the 16-year-old when asked if she intends to embrace the Hollywood party scene. “I really don’t care about fame and tabloids and all that s**t. It’s so easy to buy into, but it will just destroy you.

“I really care about acting. I also really care about my music, which keeps me happy. I think when you lose sight of what you love, that’s when you can fall off track.

“I don’t like to go out. I don’t like big group situations, I wouldn’t be a party girl, it’s not me. I might play a gig at a club, but I don’t go out to dance clubs. It’s like with drinking and all that s**t, I’m not the kind of person who would find that fun.”

Taylor recently insisted she didn’t become an actress to be a role model for young kids.

“I don’t read that crap that describes me as having an attitude, but I don’t know why that’s a bad thing,” she said last month.

“Attitude is in the eye of the beholder. I didn’t get into this to be a role model for 7-year-olds. I have no interest in doing that, you know? If parents don’t like some of the stuff I do then they shouldn’t let their kids watch me.

“I smoke, so what? Why do people give a s**t what a 16-year-old girl who they’ve never met does? It’s not like I’m sitting there going, ‘Kids, you should go buy a pack of cigarettes.’ When I walk outside with a cigarette and someone takes a picture of it and puts it on the Internet, its not my problem. I’m just living my life and I’m not gonna live my life for other people.”
