What's it like to kick it with Nickelback and Marilyn?

At just 21, Taylor Momsen has already enjoyed a career arc for the ages. Just a few years after playing Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl, she's become one of hard rock's most successful frontwowmen. She stopped by Billboard's New York office to fill us in on her one-of-a-kind life for the latest edition of The Alt In Our Stars.

Taylor told us what it's like to tour with Nickelback and Marilyn Manson, how the joking gets a little personal on the road, and how songwriting is kind of like sex. And speaking of songwriting, the Pretty Reckless is still touring behind its 2014 album Going to Hell, but Taylor is already composing what could make up album number three. On that topic, she gave a peek at her creative process.
