Taylor Momsen Explains Her Aversion To Pants, Lack Of 'Gossip Girl' Friends

'Gossip Girl' star/aspiring rocker Taylor Momsen chatted with Entertainment Weekly about her music career (she fronts a band called Pretty Reckless), how she puts music over acting and her lack of friendships on the 'Gossip Girl' set. Here are some excerpts from the interview.

On Courtney Love comparisons:
"I don't wanna be Courtney Love--I wanna be Kurt Cobain. He's brilliant and his songs are genius. The Hole records are great. Everyone always compares me to Courtney Love because they think we like dress the same and we both have blond hair, wear lipstick and dresses. But I'm sorry, don't a lot of girls dress like that? I look at Nirvana. I don't look at Hole."

On her relationship with her 'Gossip Girl' costars:
"I'm not really close with my cast. We're all cordial and nice to each other, but we're not really friends outside of the set."

On her pantslessness:
"I don't really like pants, man. I like tights. I'm not really a pants person... I choose not to wear pants."
