Taylor Momsen - Taylor Momsen Apologises To Parents

Taylor Momsen has apologised to her parents for claiming they ruined her childhood.

The 17-year-old Pretty Reckless singer has previously said she appeared "miserable" because her parents forced her to work constantly since she was two years old but after they were hurt by her comments she has begun to backtrack.

She told Kerrang: "I love my mom and dad. Maybe I didn't have the childhood people think you should have, but I still went through the ages. I was still a child. Maybe it wasn't a conventional one, but you know... I like where I am now, so it's OK. I think my parents have learned by this point that none of [what they read] is probably true, and words can be put in your mouth."

The controversial 'Gossip Girl' star also admitted she finds fame difficult to deal with, comparing it to high school but on a much larger scale.

She said: "If you think about it like high school or college then you've got your circle of friends - my band [guitarist Ben Phillips, bassist Mark Damon and drummer Jamie Perkins] are my friends - then outside of that there's going to be people that don't like you, there's going to be people that talk about you, and there's going to be people that go 'Wow! Look how big her shoes are!' no matter where you are.

"This is just high school on a massive, massive scale. So I ignore what people say and focus on my music and doing what I do."
