The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen has revealed that she just discovered YouTube reaction videos.
“I’m trying to become a tech-type person. I’m still really bad at it, if I’m being honest. But I’ve now discovered these things called ‘reaction videos’ online, where you can watch people videotape themselves listening to a song, or your song, for the first time.
And it’s not even what they say, but watching their face as they listen to it, I find very enjoyable. And so in lieu of [being able to play a live shows with] a massive audience in front of you, that’s something that’s become like a hobby of mine.”
Momsen told The Forty Five about quitting acting, ““If somebody believes something wholeheartedly, you’re not going to be able to change their mind, you’re just going to get into an argument,” she says. “I realised quickly that I wasn’t going to be able to convince people that I wasn’t a character on television by telling them I’m not a character on television; I simply had to not be that character and just be myself – I had to do the work and let go of trying to prove myself. I really found freedom in not listening to what other people say or think because it’s just an opinion that doesn’t hold any weight.”
