She’s been laying the groundwork for a transition from acting to music for quite a while, and it seems like Taylor Momsen is doing everything she can to officially make music her full-time career.

In a new interview with Elle, Taylor opens up about how she’s left the world of Gossip Girl and Hollywood behind in the hopes of making the world of rock and roll her home. “I quit acting, actually. I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band and that’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life,” she vented to the magazine.

Taylor goes on to say that writing her music “is a very tortuous process, but, you know, I would say one of the most rewarding at the end.”

Momsen’s exit from Gossip Girl came amid a large amount of speculation as to whether she chose to leave, or if she was intentionally written off of the show. Either way, thankfully she has the success of her band The Pretty Reckless to fall back on.
