Taylor Momsen Covers ‘Teen Vogue’

Little J is definitely going through some changes

Gossip Girl actress Taylor Momsen just turned 16-years-old last week and is already talking about how grown up she feels in the new issue of Teen Vogue.

On her future with Gossip Girl and acting: “It would be crazy to cut it out completely. 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.”

On almost being cast as Hannah Montana: “I think it’s a great opportunity for Miley [Cyrus], but yeah, I guess I am relieved [that I didn’t get it]. If I had gotten the part, it would be a very different show. It wouldn’t have worked for me. I push back.”

On her new, edgy look: “I had long, pretty hair, and it didn’t fit me. 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.” There was a distinct change in my wardrobe, too, and I know people were a little, um, taken aback. But it wasn’t me that changed—it was just that I decided to start being myself. Now I do my own makeup, my own hair, and dress myself, and it feels better.”

On her education: “For most people, college is a place where you learn about yourself, and I feel like I’m doing that already. I’m already independent.”

On dating older guys: “I’m not dating anyone right now, but I’ve had lots of relationships. My parents know that I’m not going to date someone who’s sixteen. Boys are so much less mature than girls as it is; there’s just no way. I would eat a boy my age alive.”
