Want to date Taylor Momsen? Little J says look out.
“I would eat a boy my age alive,” the 16-year-old “Gossip Girl” star told Teen Vogue for the September issue. “I’ve had lots of relationships. Boys are so much less mature than girls as it is. There’s just no way.”
And Momsen, who stars as Brooklyn fashion rebel Jenny Humphrey on The CW show, isn’t just ahead of her contemporaries in the dating department. She’s finished high school two years early and is already onto college.
“I found it kind of boring,” she told the mag. “I’m an artist; I’m not going to use trigonometry. Now I’m taking college classes online — I want to major in Language Arts.”
But unlike fellow young college-bound stars such as Emma Watson, Momsen won’t be heading for the halls of the Ivy League.
“For most people, college is a place where you learn about yourself, and I feel like I’m doing that already,” she said. “I’m already independent.”
She’s showcasing that spirit as frontwoman for her new band, The Pretty Reckless, who signed to Interscope earlier this year. But will rock stardom get in the way of the drama of the Upper East Side?
“It would be crazy to cut it out completely,” she said. “And I love being on the show — I hope it goes on for a couple more years. But as for the future, I don’t know. I’m at a point now where I’m not doing anything just for money or fame.”
If nothing else, being in the band gives her license to stick with her rock ’n’ roll look — not to mention confidence.
“I had long, pretty hair, and it didn’t fit me,” she said. “I’m pretty, but I’m not, like, a ‘pretty girl.’ So I pulled up a bunch of photos of Joan Jett and said, ‘Do that to my hair.’ I decided to start being myself. Now I do my own makeup, my own hair, and dress myself, and it feels better.”
