Taylor Momsen revealed that her band (initially called The Reckless) had actually signed with Interscope records in an interview with OKAY publication. It wasn’t long after that when the group started exploring as a supporting show, The Veronicas. Momsen quickly started drawing contrasts to the similarity Courtney Love, according to Spin, and the band rapidly started getting steam, striking the roadway with the rock band Evanescence before headlining trips of their own and launching extra songs. In reality, The Pretty Reckless’ 4th single, “Kill Me,” was even included on Gossip Girl’s last episode– despite reports about bad blood in between Momsen and the program.
Unfortunately, while on a trip with Soundgarden and supporting The Pretty Reckless’ 3rd album, Who Are You Selling For, Soundgarden’s prima donna, Chris Cornell, finished suicide. Soon after that, among Momsen’s initial partners, Kato Khandwala passed away in a motorbike mishap.
