Hey, Upper East Siders! It looks like Taylor Momsen—er, Little J—has something to say about her potential return to acting.

"I never say never anymore in life, especially now with all the curveballs the world is throwing everyone," the Gossip Girl alum exclusively told E! News at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards, her first red carpet in five years. "But no immediate plans."

After all, it's been about a decade since fans last saw Momsen onscreen when she played Jenny Humphrey on the OG teen drama. Since then, the 28-year-old has focused on her music with The Pretty Reckless, earning two noms at the March 22 awards show.

So what's next for the group? That's one secret Momsen will never definitely tell. After releasing their album Death by Rock and Roll last year, they're heading on tour this April.

"I'm just looking forward to getting back on the stage and doing what I love in front of people," she told E! News. "It is very weird to put out an album and do tons of press and all that and acoustic performances from home and virtual things. Now I actually get to play in front of an audience and we're just so excited to finally be able to do that again. "

And if you've been hoping for some new music, you're in luck. "We have a new single coming out in April," Momsen revealed. "We also have another piece, a collection of music that is going to be coming shortly after that. So another record/EP that we're very excited about. I'm very proud of it, but it's not titled and I don't have a release date yet."

All in all, Momsen has nothing but x's and o's for the fans who've supported her throughout the different iterations of her career.

"We look back and we've been a band now for over a decade. And that doesn't even include my previous childhood things," Momsen, who starred in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, said, later adding, "Our fans are so loyal and so devoted and it's so incredible to see that. When I go away to write a record, I'm very reclusive and I turn off the outside world entirely. And so like today, right now, I'm stepping back into it...and to see the support and it's just unwavering and undying and right they're just ready to jump back in the ring with you is such an incredible thing."
