Taylor Momsen Hits the Road, Cuts Some Tracks

By: Celebuzz / May 6, 2009

Move over, Leighton Meester; you’re not the only Gossip Girl honey to pursue musical ambitions.

OK! Magazine reports that Taylor Momsen is kicking things into high gear with her band, the Pretty Reckless. The 15-year-old, who plays Jenny Humphrey on the scandalicious show, is hitting the road with Australian duo the Veronicas starting next month, then releasing her debut album.

On the as-yet-untitled album, which will be released in the fall on Interscope, Momsen is collaborating with some seasoned talent from the music biz, including writers Toby Gad (whose previous collaborators include Fergie and Beyonce) James Michael (who’s penned tracks for Alanis Morissette and Motley Crue) and Kato Khandwala (Paramore, Morningwood).

Sounds like an instant classic!
