The Pretty Reckless frontwoman Taylor Momsen has defended her decision to get a choir of children, ranging from 8 to 12-years-old, to sing about going to hell on the track named 'Heaven Knows'.
During a new interview with Revolver magazine, the star explained that she spent time in the studio with the kids and got them riled up by telling them to think of things that makes them mad:
"I was like, 'Throw your f**king hands in the air!' and it was really hard not to curse. (I said), 'Scream about what makes you hate and what makes you the angriest in the world. I want you to scream as loud as you can.' By the end of it, they were going crazy."
Momsen added that she couldn't tell if the children understood the content of what they were singing: "I don't think they understood what they were singing. Or they did and were totally cool kids."
The band's new album, which is titled 'Going to Hell', is due to be officially released on March 17.
