Rocker/actress Taylor Momsen has dismissed rumours of a rift with her GOSSIP GIRL co-star and fellow singer Leighton Meester, insisting their music careers are completely "different".
The 16 year old fronts her own alternative rock band, The Pretty Reckless, while Meester has been working with pop songwriters and producers J.R. Rotem, Kara Dioguardi and RedOne for her upcoming debut album.
Momsen claims any comparisons of their work off-screen are unwarranted, but insists she is fully supportive of her TV colleague's music venture.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, "We're doing a different thing; she's putting out a pop record, which is awesome."
However, Momsen admits she isn't that close to the rest of the Gossip Girl cast: "We're all cordial and nice to each other, but we're not really friends outside of the set."
