We can’t say we’re surprised. Taylor Momsen (Jenny) has been less than enthused with the career choice that made her a star ever since she found success with her band, The Pretty Reckless.

After a recent show in Japan, Tay told Elle Magazine  pretty definitively that she is done with acting. “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.”

Seeing as she just turned 18 this summer, “the rest of your life” seems like a strong statement. But in the meantime, for those interested in seeing her in this post-GG space, Taylor says she’ll be on tour through 2012. And you can expect some new music from her band soon. “[W]e’ve been writing and recording some new stuff. So whether it’s a new album or, I don’t know exactly, we just write the songs and record them and everyone else decides what to do with them!”
