Taylor Momsen Quits Acting

Gossip Girls actress Taylor Momsen is officially done with acting she has declared.

The eighteen year old, who landed the role of Jenny four years ago when the show first premiered, has moved on, and is now embracing her musical aspirations.  After failing to be reinstated for the CW series’ upcoming fifth season, and only appearing in four episodes of season 4, Momsen has revealed to Elle  she has “quit acting. I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band [The Pretty Reckless] and that’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.”

Although some are calling her bluff, the fishnet donning rocker who made her mark back in 2000’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas as Cindy Lou Who, is changing worlds, moving from the small screen to the stage permanently, and she appears to be serious and ready.  Momsen is scheduled to go on tour with her band, who formed back in 2008, in promotion of their first album that was just released this year.  They hit the road this fall to support Evanescence.

    I know. She was pretty popular on the first couple season of Gossip Girl but she imploded and they let her go. She apparently begged to get the job back, they brought her on board for a couple episodes and let her go again. Apparently if no one hires you for work, you can tell everyone you ‘quit’
