Taylor Momsen Retires from Acting

Teen angst icon and longtime child star Taylor Momsen is retiring from acting at the age of 18. In an interview with Elle, she says she's all about the music:

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.

Personally, I am holding out hope that she has a backlash rebellious phase at 19, and become a nun. With all that non-stop wearing of stripper shoes, her arches are bound to fall sooner or later.
