Taylor Momsen enjoys gothic rock but insists she tries not to be influenced too much by other people's musical style

Taylor Momsen hates adopting other artists' style.

The Pretty Reckless singer is a big fan of gothic rock but insists the music featured on the group's album 'Light Me Up' comes from her own ideas and inspiration.

She said: "Musically, I grew up among a lot of gothic rock but I don't like to take on the style of other artists too much, that's not the point of it.

"You know, the record is very much written about my life and what I know, what I feel, what I've experienced and all that stuff. It's a very honest record, I guess."

The 17-year-old star is looking forward to going on the road with her band - but warned fans to be ready for a surge in volume.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Hopefully we'll have a lot of fun, it's all about us and the fans having a good time. We're going to rock it out! We're going to have a couple of upcoming and local bands supporting us which is really important to us. In terms of The Pretty Reckless though fans should prepare themselves for it to be loud!"

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.
