Taylor Momsen insists that she didn’t choose acting or modeling, but was rather “thrown into it.” This, according to an interview she did recently with Bio.
“I liked it (acting and modeling), so that wasn’t a problem, but music and songwriting are what I’ve always really wanted to do,” Taylor explained. ”I’ve been working with producers and hanging out in recording studios since I was five, I just couldn’t put out an album when I was eight. Now I can.”
Light Me Up is an honest chronicle of Taylor’s experience in life. “It (the record) covers everything: love, death, and music itself,” she adds. ”It’s rock and roll. It’s sex. It’s drugs. It’s religion. It’s politics. Each song tells a story about the trials and tribulations and emotional struggles that I’ve experienced or observed.”
“It’s not a happy pop record, but it’s not Satan-worshiping either,” Taylor defends. “The lyrics aren’t meant to be taken literally, they are open to interpretation. I’m not just writing something because I think people might like it. I hope they do, but I’m writing it because I have something to say. So many feelings go into the lyrics that it’s hard to explain what they’re about.”
