Taylor Momsen's blame game

Taylor Momsen says her parents robbed her of her childhood by forcing her to work.

Taylor Momsen's blame gameGossip Girl actress and trashy lead singer of The Pretty Reckless Taylor Momsen says she's a dark and miserable person because she had bad parents.

The 17-year-old uses the typical teen tactic of blaming her pseudo-rebellion on her mom and dad, but stops short of saying they refuse to let her wear pants and hold her down while thickly piling on the eyeliner.

"Everyone's like, 'Wow, why is she upset and why is she so miserable about things?'" Taylor Momsen told Starpulse. "My parents signed me up with Ford [modeling agency] at the age of two. No two-year-old wants to be working, but I had no choice."

"My whole life, I was in and out of school. I didn't have friends. I was working constantly and I didn't have a real life."

Which leaves us wondering, if Momsen hates the life of performing she claims to have been forced into, then why is she still living it?
