Lead singer of up and coming emo rock band...check
The 'face' of Madonna's new fashion brand...check
I want to know how on earth she manages to fit all of that in and still have time to sleep, but Taylor Momsen (currently best known as Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl) really does seem to be living the dream.
Madonna's has designed a line for Macy's department stores aptly named 'Material Girl' and the young Miss Momsen is their poster girl for the launch, which officially occurs on 3rd August...
Her band 'The Pretty Reckless' have recently released their first single 'Make me wanna die' and it's doing big things...(on radio here in Australia at least) and they performed at the Vans Warped Tour recently, but she also getting lots of bad press for her chain smoking on stage, totally inappropriate outfits at gigs, lurid tweets and timeless soundbites like "I didn't get into this to be a role model. So I'm sorry if I'm influencing your kids in a way that you don't like, but I can't be responsible for their actions. I don't care." so time will tell if she really can do it all or if it'll all be a case too hard, too fast, too soon, too young.
annnnndddddd DID YOU KNOW....that a very young and somewhat unrecognisable Taylor played Cindy Lou Who in the live action version of 'The Grinch' with Jim Carey in 2000?
