Taylor Momsen - Workaholic Taylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen is a workaholic.

The singer-and-actress claims her closest friends are her Pretty Reckless bandmates - Ben Phillips, Mark Damon and Jamie Perkins - which she admits makes their working relationship much easier as she is always thinking about her career.

She said: "My best friends come on tour with me, I'm so close with my band so that's fantastic. It's the best job, you get to be with who you love and be with your friends all the time. There's no complaints. I'm working 24 hours a day and that's probably the one thing people don't know about me, that I'm a workaholic and I can't stop. But I love what I do so it's always fun."

The 17-year-old star admits she doesn't want to be a role model for young people in any way other than to inspire them to work hard and achieve their ambitions.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I don't want to consider myself to be a role model, that's too much pressure for anyone to take on. I didn't get into this industry to become a role model.

"I got into it very young and because I love music I still have that drive. I'm not happy if I'm not making music, it's a simple as that. It's a need. So if I inspire people who need to do what I do and want to have the same drive to work really hard then that's great but don't try to be me, be yourself. That's the only foundation in this industry because it's so critical and difficult."

The Pretty Reckless' album, 'Light Me Up', is available in the UK now and the US from Monday (07.02.11). They will embark on a US tour in support of the record from 11 February.
