Taylor Momsen performs with The Pretty Reckless

Former “Gossip Girl” star and all-around bad girl Taylor Momsen announced today that she is officially retiring from acting so she can focus on her music career and her band, The Pretty Reckless. Her only notable work includes the CW show and the part of Cindy Lou Who in 2001’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” To put that in perspective, it would be like if you got a job at McDonald’s and retired after serving five Big Macs and a couple of Happy Meals.

But, if you’re a semi-famous cute girl who dresses slutty and had a stint on a popular teen show, you can pretty much do whatever you want. She told Elle magazine, “I quit acting. I quit ‘Gossip Girl’ and now tour and am in a band. That’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully, I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.”

Still, we think this is pretty reckless of her.
