The Pretty Reckless, a rock band led by 18 year old singer Taylor Momsen, is a band you may or may not have heard much about. If you have heard them, and of them, you know that The Pretty Reckless are one of the hottest up-and-coming music acts in Rock and Roll. How hot? Well, FHM Magazine just named Taylor Momsen as “#1 Hottest Newbie Music Girl of 2012″. Additionally, the latest music video from The Pretty Reckless, My Medicine, features a sometimes naked Jenna Haze throughout. It’s actually a scientific law that says that anything featuring Jenna Haze, naked or otherwise, is pretty damn hot.
So, I suppose you want to actually see the new Pretty Reckless video (and Jenna Haze), don’t you? Fine. Here it is…
“I’m not just writing something because I think people might like it,” Momsen says. “I hope they do, but I’m writing it because I have something to say. So many feelings go into the lyrics that it’s hard to explain what they’re about. Momsen first hooked up with Khandwala (Blondie, Drowning Pool, Paramore, Breaking Benjamin) and partner and songwriter, Phillips in October 2008. By the spring of last year, they felt they had hit upon a sound that felt authentic to her.
“The three of us have similar musical taste, so it was easy to find that singular vision,” Phillips says. “Kato and I worked very hard to help Taylor reach her potential because we could see how talented she was right off the bat. She went into the vocal booth and began to sing and we turned to each other and went, ‘Holy sh*t, she’s f**’ing great.’ Her voice was astonishing. So many artists these days let their voices be discombobulated by computers. Taylor doesn’t do that. She doesn’t need to. She can walk into a room and kick your ass.”
The Pretty Reckless are currently on tour with Parlor Mob and Hollywood Kills.
