Artist: Taylor Momsen (The Pretty Reckless)
Age: 16

Why She's Hot: Taylor Momsen's rock sound is probably something her 'Gossip Girl' character Jenny Humphrey might be into. Her band, the Pretty Reckless, channels Blondie, Nirvana and Hole with a young, new attitude that the record execs at Interscope had to snap up right away. Taylor and her band supported the Veronicas on 24-date tour earlier this year and have kept fans' excitement up with new demos on their MySpace page.

What's Up Next: Although no release date has been set, Interscope records says the Pretty Reckless is set to release their debut album this fall.
