Taylor Momsen Admits She Has the "Biggest Balls" in the Pretty Reckless

There are a couple of reasons you might know Taylor Momsen. Perhaps as the funny, bright-eyed Jenny Humphrey, a.k.a. everyone's favorite drug dealer, on Gossip Girl. Or maybe from fronting the band Pretty Reckless. Or, there's a chance you just register her platinum blond locks and prevalent raccoon-like eye shadow.

Either way, Momsen is just psyched you're talking about her, even if she wishes it were all about the music. And don't let the band's newest endeavor Going to Hell, scare you. It's just raw rock and roll. And Momsen? Despite all the black, she tells us, she "couldn't be happier."

We spoke with the charming frontlady, days before buses started rolling on their 39-city tour, about what it's like to start a record from scratch after Sandy.
