Taylor Momsen is obsessed with fire

London: `Gossip Girl` star Taylor Momsen is obsessed with fire and loves setting things ablaze.

The 17-year-old star stuns her bandmates in Pretty Reckless with her desire to incinerate random objects, though they think she occasionally goes too far, reported a news website.

"Taylor loves setting things on fire, so this is great. In the studio, there was this pit where the owner would burn stuff. We`d burn old keyboards, computers, stuff them full of TNT and set them on fire. Taylor loves fire.

"I shouldn`t say this. One morning, Taylor got into the studio really early - she`d just had her dog neutered and brought in the bits. Which she then burned. We were grossed out," said guitarist Ben Phillips.

Despite her unusual habit, the singer-and-actress insists she is not a bad person or as difficult as she has been perceived, arguing she is just a typical teenager.

"I do smile when things are funny. I`m quite moody, I`m a teenager. I have an interesting life and I get my picture taken 24/7, and it`s not always pleasurable. I am really moody, but I`m not a mean person. I`m actually nice," she said.

Momsen, who is the face of pop diva Madonna`s latest clothing line for teenagers, also defended her reputation for wearing "provocative" clothing, insisting she is being "rock
`n` roll".

"I`m 17. Aren`t I supposed to be provocative? I don`t really understand what the problem is. I know I dress provocatively on stage, but it`s just rock `n` roll. Like, I don`t really understand what the big deal is," said Momsen.
