Ex-Gossip Girl, Taylor Momsen has been heavily compared to Miley Cyrus recently as her band The Pretty Reckless is rapidly building an audience. It turns out that 16-year-old Taylor is less than happy with the comparisons to the pop star as she thinks of herself as more of a hardcore rocker/Curt Cobain type than the pop star/Miley Cyrus.
She recently told FHM UK:
“I’m not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus. I don’t care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we’ll go along for the ride. I’m not dissing Miley personally. However, I do think the Disney bubblegum sh*t that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression. I don’t know Miley, but musically we’re different. To compare us because of our age is silly. People will be surprised by the record. I mean, it’s a rock record. I get that there is this blonde thing from Gossip Girl and they’re expecting pop sh*t, but it’s a rock band and its heavy. Our record is a life record. It confronts everything head on. It’s death, love, drugs, sex, religion, politics.”
