Hundreds of Taylor Momsen fans brought traffic in Paris, France to a standstill on Monday night when they crowded around a street corner to watch the star play a surprise gig.
The Gossip Girl star was in the French capital helping to launch designer John Galliano’s new fragrance Parler moi d’Amour.

But Momsen decided to use the visit to reward her dedicated Parisien fans – and announced on Monday morning that she would put on a free show with her band The Pretty Reckless that evening.

Taking to her blog to reveal the exact location, Momsen wrote, “Everyone who can get to Paris by 8pm tonight be at the corner of Quai des grands augustins and Rue des grands augustins…see you there!!”

And the last-minute event proved to be a popular one – hundreds of locals turned out to watch The Pretty Reckless perform in the back of a truck.
