The Pretty Reckless

From 2007 to 2012, Taylor Momsen starred in the wildly popular ‘Gossip Girl’, but even then her real ambitions lay elsewhere: rock music. In her own words: ‘Acting is role-playing, music is something personal’. In 2012, she decided to go ahead and do her own thing. Momsen recorded her first song when she was just five. ‘Christmas, Why Can’t I Find You?’ is on the soundtrack to ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’, the 2002 film in which she starred alongside Jim Carrey. The Pretty Reckless is another kettle of fish entirely -it’s power rock, which draws its energy from Kurt Cobain and Joan Jett. The group is all Momsen's. She writes, sings and plays guitar. Album number 4 is on its way. It’s not Momsen’s first time in Werchter, as The Pretty Reckless graced the stage here in 2011.
