Taylor Momsen Wrote Heidi Montag’s Single ‘Blackout’ When She Was Eight Years Old

Did you like Heidi Montag’s first single ‘Blackout’? I actually didn’t know that Taylor Momsen wrote the lyrics. I guess the ‘Gossip Girl’ star didn’t feel like putting that information out there considering which celebrity picked up the tune.

Turns out that Taylor wrote ‘Blackout’ when she was just eight years old.

“I recorded it with a producer as a demo. Heidi Montag… just recently sang it and put it out as her single. “I’m like, ‘OK, dude, you’re singing an eight year old’s words, but that’s cool’.

“It’s so funny, because I didn’t shop it or anything and I get this call going, ‘Did you write a song for Heidi Montag?’ And I’m like, ‘What?'”

LOL! Here are some of the lyrics from ‘Blackout’ in case you need a refresher:

You and me are one in the same
It’s the one thing that they can’t change
You and me live for the ride
I’ll take the drop if you’re on my side
I’m hearing them sayin we’re wrong for each other
I’m taking my chances for worse or for better
Why can’t they see some things are meant to be?

Black out the satellite, where should we run to?
It’s gettin physical boy
And if you want to go somewhere no one can find us
We can get out of here

Black out the satellite and be my road star
You wanted anything else so show ya my heart
Let’s leave this city behind us
We can get out of here

Wonder what other celebrities are going to pick up songs written by Taylor Momsen!?

    … if my 8 yr old daughter wrote something like this I would be seriously concerned…. and I would hardly call Heidi a celeb…

    This might be pretty good for an 8 yr-old (and daring), but still completely childish. Can’t believe Heidi sung this, but i shouldn’t be surprised.

    I knew she wrote this song before the album was even released, it’s just it is the first time Taylor has actually talked about it. I’d like to hear Taylor sing it; actually, anyone sing it. So far, I’ve just heard auto-tune! I think Taylor’s voice is grungy enough to give the song that meat it needs.

    Come on! The song is good! I love this Heidi song! the beat is so good and the lyrics are totally OK! If it is true that Taylor wrote it… good job for a 8-year old!

    Taylor is a very talented singer/song writer! I have never seen gossip girl ( gasp! Yeah I know all you freaks) but I’m a huge fan of her music. She is an incredible song writer and you know you’re talented and were born to do what she does if you write like that at 8. I think taylor needs to sing her song blackout instead of Heidi montag for many reasons. 1.) does anyone listen to Heidi montag?
    2.) Taylor’s voice is very sultry
    3.) I like the lyrics and want to be able to hear it sung
    4.) who else can rock the fuck out in 6 inch heels?
