Watch out, boys. This girl's doing some clean up on the rock charts lately.
And she's only frickin' 20!!
She's come quite a ways since her 'Gissip Girl' days. One of the greatest tunes on the airwaves right now is 'Heaven Knows,' which is spending its second consecutive week on the Billboard charts at #1. That makes this girl only the second chick in 24 years to top the Mainstream Rock Charts. The only other chick to do the same was Lzzy Hale when Halestorm hit #1 for two weeks with "Freak Like Me." Besides the two, Alannah Myles with "Black Velvet" 24 years ago in 1990.
Obviously, rock is dominated by men. Even though she's gotta be perfectly content right now, kicking ass at age 20 and all, she considers the greatest men in rock as her influences. According to Billboard, she stated "I grew up wanting to be Robert Plant, Chris Cornell and John Lennon. All my influences have always been men."
Have I mentioned she's only 20?
I hope one day, we can type in "Taylor " on Google, and Taylor Momsen will be the first name to show up, above Taylor Swift.
Just like Lzzy, Maria Brink, and Amy Lee, I'm all about a badass female rocker taking lead. Hell yeah for the girls on rock radio!
Watch Taylor do her thing in 'Heaven Knows.' And turn it up loud.
