Taylor Momsen likes Courtney Love label

Wednesday, 25th Aug 2010

Taylor Momsen has said that she enjoys being compared to Hole singer Courtney Love, but would not include her on a list of her idols.

The 17-year-old singer of The Pretty Reckless is still best known for her role as Jenny Humphrey in Gossip Girl, but with the band set to release their first album Light Me Up, this could soon change.

Speaking to Interview magazine, she said she does not mind being referred to as a junior Courtney Love, because she thinks she is "awesome".

"She just isn't one of my idols or direct influences, despite what people think," the provocative star said.

The performer also explained that she hopes the album offers a degree of social commentary with several tracks working on multiple levels.

British fans of Momsen recently saw her perform as part of V Festival in Chelmsford and Stafford alongside the likes of Kings of Leon and the Prodigy.
