New interview with Alex Kazemi!

Alex Kazemi: When did you decide you were going to become a musician? Was music always something you were interested in?

Taylor Momsen: I’ve been playing and writing since I was young, around 5, its always been a love of mine…

Kazemi: What type of thing’s influenced the lyrics on your album? Tell us about your song writing process

Taylor: My songs come from all sorts of places, I usually find an idea or topic I want to write about and start there. I’m influenced by whatever’s around me that catches my attention. It can be a stressful process, waiting for the right/good idea.

Kazemi: Who is your favorite designer?

Taylor: Chanel.

Kazemi: Would you ever design your own fashion line? If so what type of piece’s would the line consist of?

Taylor: I’d love to, but I’d want to be able to give it a lot of attention. Probably lots of dresses, skirts and shirts.

Kazemi: Do you have a favorite song on the record?

Taylor: They all are special in their own way…

Kazemi: What type of things influence your personal style? It’s been described as provocative .. do you agree?

Taylor: I’m not looking to be provocative, I just like certain looks on me, no real direct influences, I mix and match and try to come up with something that makes me feel good.

Kazemi: Do you have any intentions to have the record go mainstream?

Taylor: Not sure if that’s my choice, however I can get it out for people to hear is good enough for me.

Kazemi: Do you think it’s going to be hard to make that transition in the public eye from being an actress to a musician?

Taylor: It has its issues, but I really don’t focus on that, I’m really excited about being able to play every day.

Kazemi: What’s your favorite record of all time?

Taylor: All the Beatles records.

Kazemi: What is your honest opinion of yourself as a person?

Taylor: Not sure I have one…I’m just me, good or bad.

Kazemi: Does the style transition of Jenny from Gossip girl reflect on your personal style?

Taylor: To some degree sure.

Kazemi: You are always compared to Courtney Love and Hole? Does that bother you since you are more into Nirvana?

Taylor: they’re all great artists, I think we all want to be understood by people in some degree, but it doesn’t bother me.
