New Interview with Vinyl Mag!

Alright.  So I just interviewed Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless backstage at The Masquerade. Not gonna lie…I had no idea what to expect when I went into this interview.  However, besides the fact that we had to do the interview backstage during the opening act (where is the soundproof room?!), it all went down pretty smoothly.

Based on what I have read about Taylor, the last thing I expected was for her to be friendly (nice, sure…but downright friendly?).  She welcomed us (my friend/videographer, Katie, and I) backstage and comfortably chatted with us while we got set up.  To put it simply, I really enjoyed myself during this interview.

As for the show…dude.  Ok.  Everyone talks about what Taylor does and wears onstage.  A lot of the buzz seems to be about how scandalous she gets.  However, people seem to keep forgetting to talk about the actual music.  Which, after having seen them live, I now find absolutely astonishing.

The girl can sing.  She gets up there and does whatever moves she does and wears whatever she wears to get the audience going, but the real “wow” moment for me was when she opened her mouth.  Undeniable voice.  Truly, truly talented.  For me, he pure talent of the band and her voice completely overshadowed her stage personality (which, in my opinion, is how it should be).

Go ahead and check out our interview below.  Bear with me on the dang sound issues.
