Taylor Momsen, 16, is just performing in lingerie now

Last week I asked if Taylor Momsen’s pantless jailbait act was worse than Miley Cyrus’s jailbait extravaganza. I still don’t know the answer, but this weekend, PopEater asked a similar question – is it a double standard that “the media” treats Miley and Taylor so differently? Is it because Miley was a Disney child star and Taylor is best known for her adult-esque jailbait act on Gossip Girl? Also – PopEater reminds us that Taylor auditioned for Hannah Montana, in a little piece of “What would have happened if…?

Which brings me to Taylor’s latest. These are photos of her performing on the Warped Tour over the weekend. As you can see, she’s given up simply being pantless, and she’s now going for the lingerie look. I just… ugh. This little girl. The whole ensemble of course provided multiple opportunities for panty flashes (she was wearing them). And of course, Taylor had to light a cigarette while she was on stage:

UPDATE: Ooh, I wrote this before I saw her shoes! Her shoes are trashtastic. We don’t have access to a closeup of them, but Gawker does here. Here’s a hint of the shoes:

    What happened to Cindy Lou Who?
    I don’t know if that cross ring was meant to be inverted, but………

    And I kinda like the lingerie, just not on a child.

  2. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Poor poser child. I don’t understand the smoking. Sad thing is we know she smokes because she thinks its cool. LOL I would have more respect for her antics if they came from a genuine place but she is just posing right now…she is so me when I was young. Well younger. As far as the outfits, Miley’s is really tight and she damn near flashes vadge…this while skimpy isn’t that bad, she isn’t showing anything. The Disney thing of course factors in. Not to many young girls grew up watching this kid but a lot of them did watching Miley. So watching your fave Disney princess suddenly get tats and flash her vadge in your face is a little shocking.

  3. TQB says:

    “Is it because Miley was a Disney child star and Taylor is best known for her adult-esque jailbait act on Gossip Girl? ”

    Yes. Miley made millions with her sweet innocent Christian act. This is Christina vs. Britney all over again. Look how well that worked out for Britbrit…

  4. Annicka says:

    The media might be treating them with a double standard, but I’m not. They’re both little whores.

  5. bellaluna says:

    GAH! Please put a warning on those pix – when I saw that first pic, I jumped back and just about took out the baby AND the cat!

    She’s just…ick.

  6. Lisa says:

    Omg she really don’t look like she has on panties and if u couldn’t see the outline of them I’d totally agrue that. Anywho since she is wearing them they must be very small. What ever happened to girls leaving something for the guys imagionation???????

  8. scotchy says:

    this little girl is trying a little too hard to be something that she just isn’t nor does she understand because she is still a CHILD, ugh.. gross

  9. I Choose Me says:

    Sigh. I really dig her voice and am thinking of getting their album but I so don’t get her clothing choices or lack thereof. She can be edgy/rockstar without flashing the jailbait non?

  10. mln says:

    I think I find Miley more obnoxious because it is just such an obvious campaign to change her image. This one looks tragic.

  11. Oi says:

    Taylor M. stole the hair flip thing from Taylor Swift.

    And they are both wastes of space.

  12. London Lady says:

    OK i think its time for a little lady to quit gossip girl. She is too similar to her on screen character, which makes it a little weird to watch. Little Jenny goes to boarding school in Switzerland perhaps?

  13. gen says:

    How can u smoke & sing at the same time?
    Anyone remember Cheri Curry in the Runaways (think of the recent movie) um, hello, same exact dress & she was 15 when she started. I don’t know, on the one hand I’m like whatever. But on the other hand I just wish kids would stay kids longer. And smoking is just nasty at whatever age.

  14. kelbear says:

    Taylor almost got the role for hannah montana. Who would you rather have, Miley or Taylor?

  15. hanh says:

    The new Britney Spears train wreck.

  16. a says:

    does each state have a different minimum smoking age or what?

  17. Lady Nightshade says:

    I think Miley is waaay more popular then this girl

  18. WednesdayGirl says:

    Wow, Courtney Love 2.0 in the making. Horrible weave, terrible fashion sense and make up, and very hard try of having a “hardcore” attitude.

    Let’s hope that unlike Courtney, this one steers clear of the drugs.

  19. Danielle says:

    She thinks she’s older and more hardcore than she really is.

  20. MaiGirl says:

    This little girl just makes me tired. She has taken cliche so far that she has almost whipped back to original again.

  21. Ron says:

    Again I must reiterate my previous statement about this.

    Barf.

  22. No Sensei says:

    I hear Travis Bickle is on his way to save her…

  23. LeManda says:

    I’m going against the curve. I don’t think she’s a poser, just a normal rebellious teen. She believes it so it’s real. What, she has to come from a home where she was beat and raped to feel a certain type of music? It’s only a different style then when I was in school. These young girls are doing the same thing as Brit and X-Tina just a bit younger because they grew up on that crap.
    Though I agree with the Miley critic because we’re still being feed this perfect Christian crap when she’s off stage. If you want to be a rebel at least own it 24/7.

  24. phlyfiremama says:

    Aren’t there laws against minors in possession of tobacco? And who got her the illegal tobacco, anyway?

  25. Jeri says:

    She wouldn’t get any press if covered her naughty parts.

    She does have a black bra & panties on, I suppose that’s the best you can hope hope w/her.

  26. Ruby Red Lips says:

    You never know she may be like Juliette Lewis, happy being in a band and staying under the radar

    I am a little disturbed that she is only 16 – do they really grow up this quickly nowadays…frightening!

  27. onyx says:

    crash and burn baby. mark my words.

  28. lucy2 says:

    Pathetic and ridiculous, but she thinks it’s so cool. Blah.

    Totally agree that the double standard comes from Miley’s fame and fortune being built on her wholesome Disney, Hannah Montana character.

  29. Miriam says:

    @WednesdayGirl:
    A while ago Lainey gossip had a blind about this child being hospitalized because of Heroin withdrawls. Maybe it’s because she wants to be like Kobain?

  30. anons says:

    her parents must be so proud.

  31. Kazoo81 says:

    this bitch…

    and again i ask, where are her parents? has anyone ever seen either of them? or was she raised by wolves?

  32. Nicole says:

    By the time she’s 25, she’s going to look 40

  33. Bellatrix says:

    You’ve forgotten to show the shoes! The tip-me-big-time shoes of doom…

    How could you, Kaiser? That was easily the best part of this trantastic outfit.

  34. KJ says:

    You guys have to post pictures of her outfit with the shoes she was wearing. She had on like 8 inch clear platform stripper heels, and the platform portion had the word “TIPS” written on it with dollars inside. Not joking. Someone is trying embarrassingly way too hard.

  35. Kaiser says:

    I updated the story with a link for the shoes! Unfortunately, we don’t have the closeup pics. Those are so trashy and fug!

  36. Iggles says:

    OMG!

    Seriously! I think these photo are NSFW. I literally screamed when I saw them.

    Where are her parents????????

  37. Bellatrix says:

    Kaiser, I’m afraid it was even trashier that she only managed to get one 1$ bill as a tip.

    After all the skimpiness, studded lingerie investment and derrière waddling, you’d think she’d at least have more than just a dollar (while Miley’s laughing her way to the bank).
    That’s not buying her a pack of ciggies anytime soon!

  38. Katija says:

    @Iggles

    Her parents are enjoying their new homes and cars.

    Enjoy your cigarette, Taylor. Take it from a former heavy smoker, it’s going to be very glamorous when you’re considering Restalin at 21 to fill in the fine lines around your lips, while your girlfriends’ skin is still baby soft. Very glamorous, sexy, and cool indeed!

  39. Ethel says:

    Lucite Heels!!! I’d hate to have to try to get the eye makeup stains out of her towels.

  40. dancingmen says:

    Why won’t CPS investigate her mother?? Sixteen, exposing herself, smoking openly…

  41. AJ says:

    Her Mom is quite a “MILF” according to other sites. I’m sure her and her daughter are BFF’s just like Dina and Lindsey. This is how kids with BFF moms turn out, their mothers see nothing wrong with it, ESPECIALLY when they are bringin’ home the bacon!!! I fear for my own children’s future, teens today are beyond trashy!!!

  42. snowball says:

    She just makes me really pissed at her parents. They’re probably about my age and I just.. words fail me. Even if your kid grew up in HW and did the acting thing and this was a big opportunity, would you really want this kind of thing for her? Being slutty-looking, smoking and I guess giving fat old farts hard-ons? Really?

    Just for some fast cash, because this kind of thing isn’t going to last long and I can’t see it as a segue into any other career. She’s not going to turn this into a Meryl Streep career, or get Celine Dion longevity. She’s a flash in the pan, a novelty, and then what?

    I can’t imagine how they look at themselves in the mirror. I’m sure Taylor is just fine with the way she is, she’s just 16.

    (You have to be 18 to buy cigs where I live)

  43. Melinda says:

    This makes me sad. Since when are 16 year olds allowed to wear stripper shoes and lingere with their vadge hanging out on stage? Who is buying her cigarettes? Her parents get an “F”.

  44. gg says:

    Young girls love to wear stockings because it makes them feel all grown up.

    She looks like she does not eat, and is very flabby from lying on the couch all day. So young to be so out of shape. *See potbelly, poor posture and double chin.

  45. Canucklehead says:

    Who cares!?

    Let this one stroll down the same path to career oblivion that was paved by similar ilk.

    (lohan, courtney love, those creepy olsen twins, paris hilton)

    She can warm the place up for Snookie and the cast from jersey shore who will be following soon enough.

  46. Solveig says:

    “I updated the story with a link for the shoes! Unfortunately, we don’t have the closeup pics. Those are so trashy and fug!”
    LOL! I saw those pictures on DListed and I thought that the girl probably has some self-mockery going on. I almost changed my opinion of her.
    The thing that pissed me most is not her “costume” is the fact that she is smoking a cigarette… I’m ok if she tries to be hardcore, I did the same when I was 16 (and I was/it was harmless), but a cigarette on stage? really?

  47. GatsbyGal says:

    Dead by 20, I guarantee it.

  48. palomino says:

    I have no use for this girl but the faux outrage in the comment section and in the post itself, TBH is so funny. She’s wearing a corset! Call Child Protective Services! As if anyone of us really cares about this girl’s well-being? Please! We’re here to tear her apart.

    Our culture is completely schizophrenic when it comes to girls and women. We’re obsessed with protecting the “chastity” of young white girls but so eager to objectify them at the same time. It’s so twisted, especially since we don’t treat teenage boys (white or black)the same way. But whatever!

    Taylor is totally channeling Cherie Curie (who was also a teenage lingerie connoisseur back in the 70′s) with this outfit. Wait..didn’t she audition for Curie role in the Runaways? She knows the she ain’t got the part, right? Hmmm.
    The shoes are ridiculous. But that stupid corset provides more coverage than the average one-piece bathing suit would. Before anyone argues for the differences between lingerie and swimwear, let me stop you and say this: There is no material difference. It’s all in the label and the meaning you attach to that label.

  49. KJ says:

    LOOK AT ME!! I am all hard ya know-I wear black makeup!! Yeah and I tear my clothes and wear underwear on stage!! Yeah!! Cuz I am all punk!! Oh-yeah-and I am on a TV show, and I get my hair and makeup done professionally just to LOOK punk-but I am TOUGH!!LOOK AT ME!!

  50. sdgirl says:

    She’s said she doesn’t want to be Courtney Love, but rather Kurt Cobain…it’s really sad…does anyone choose to be Courtney Love or do they just find themselves there after trying way too hard to be someone more talented like Kurt Cobain? I hope this phase in teen girl sexy/fake innocent is over by the time my daughter is that age…seriously, is it too much to hope that girls can cover a bit of their hoochie without feeling uncool?

  51. Call me Sherlock says:

    what’s up with little girls trying so friggn’ hard?!?
    Maybe she just got done watching the Runaways, because #45 on here YOU’RE SO RIGHT!

    I mean I appreciate the laughs and all, but it’s pretty sad, much like those shoes.

    For someone who claims to be original, she’s sure a huge copy cat posure. She doesn’t have an ounce of originality in her.

  52. Mrs Odie 2 says:

    A 16 year old is not a “child.” She is, except in rare cases, a post pubescent female. I remember being 16 and reveling in my sexual power. I can’t imagine what I wouldve done if I’d had a national stage to display it on. I’d have probably walked around in lingerie. And I think most rural, teens of parents who smoke also smoke.

    Now, I think this is tacky and gross, but our culture is obsessed with the forbidden sexuality of girls on the verge of being “legal.” So here’s another one who’s cashing in.

  53. honey bee says:

    Where’s her parents? She seems out of control for 16 yrs old… i bet she will forgot to wear her panties soon enough!

  54. Missfit says:

    These little girls dressing like this is only getting worse and younger at age. Little 10 year olds shopping through women’s bikinis is NOT okay, 12 and 14 year olds dressing like slutty 18 or 21 year olds is NOT okay. I mean, have y’all seen the two younger girls of the Kardashians, already dressing in tight mini dresses, that’s NOT okay. What are our girls coming to now in days? Whatever happened to innocent shorts to the knees, with a t-shirt and sneakers? Kids are having sex at younger ages and getting knocked up even younger too, it’s really sad. I don’t know about this girl, hell no.

  55. Cletus says:

    That girl needs a flea dip.

  56. Harajuku says:

    The x-rated version of Taylor Swift?

  57. Boombeeba says:

    Taylor is just livin her dream like so many other 16 y.o WISH they could do but will never be able to. You don’t have to understand her, accept her or respect her. She is learning things that she couldve never learned in a HS class. She will not be this young forever & provided she makes it to 50 I think she will be able to look back at her teen days with joy in her eyes much like old hippies look back to their wild LSD & orgy induced hey days. I’m happy for her!! Live Life Taylor! U only get one shot! The ppl n these forums aren’t putting a penny in ur pocket therefore don’t worry about what hate they spew on u, a girl they don’t even know (o_~)

  58. Jessipalooza says:

    She’s not even old enough to smoke. <<;

  59. Jason says:

    A close-up of her shoes….

    (Not sure if I’m allowed to post a link…. sorry if I’m not!!)

  60. Emma says:

    Agree completely with TQB. This is so Brit vs X Tina.

    See, the thing is, I actually like Taylor Momsen’s sound. I think her record is legit. She might be a poser, but she’s a poser who is making decent music. I dislike most of the corporate, candy-coated, Daughtryesque bull shit that we are being fed in the place of rock. I feel like she’s got an interesting, mature voice, and decent song-writing chops.

    My issue is with her posing. She’s the kind of artist I could get behind, if I were 100% certain that she is sincere. But she started so sweet an double-bubbly with the blond hair and the pink dresses. And even now, she gives interviews talking about her love for Chanel before saying, “Yeah, rock on.”

    WTF?

    Either do it for real, or go home.

  61. Jillian says:

    She’s holding the guitar like she doesn’t know how. This cracks me up.

    POSERRRRRRRRR.

  62. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Hmm. Another silly little kid chain smoking her way to nothing.

  63. Gypsy says:

    She looks like she has a few stds. Oh the irony…when your younger you strive to look older..then you get older and want to look younger. Awful girl who thinks she has talent. Wow what a badass sporting your upside down cross and studded hooker dress. Real classy “courtney love”.

  64. Scary Videos says:

    Lookout Courtney Love! What the hell happened to her? Choose your friends carefully!

  65. Ms. Thing says:

    The difference is that Miley came up as a child star – a child megastar. Taylor is far less famous than she – plenty of people don’t even know who she is. Miley Cyrus is unavoidable, Taylor Momsen is marginally famous.

  66. Tom90 says:

    Smocking sucks but her outfit is so awesome.

    Taylor is really hot. Nobody can doubt that ^^

  67. Sophia says:

    Gen, the second I saw this post I too thought, um, wow, Cherie Currie wannabee much? Tooootally ripped off.
    Those shoes are awful, and the smoking onstage is unbelievable. If she wants to smoke in her own time, fine, but to be doing it for the whole world to see, including, no doubt, young, impressionable fans, is totally irresponsible. Yuck. I miss Cindy Lou Who :(

  68. Violet says:

    Holy Shit, she has gained weight man. It’s not a “bad angle” either she has been photographed from angles like that before…

  69. Alison says:

    I wonder if skinny little bitch by Courtney is about like Taylor? Sounds like it.

  70. laura says:

    Honestly, I don’t think Miley should even be compared to this trainwreck. Whatever people think of her new image, she still doesn’t promote smoking, drinking and partying, and has strong values about issues such as sex before marriage, as well as a stable family life. Also, she doesn’t swear 24/7. Miley has more talent in her index finger than this moody brat.

  71. T says:

    well, that outfit is kinda tragic, but at least she isnt a total slut like Miley; i mean, at least taylor momsen hasnt acted as an innocent kid for years.

    I do love taylor’s voice, she just needs to grow up and realise that she’s just a teenager (that was a confusing sentence).

    Give her a chance; that or ignore her. Either way she might change

  72. Absolute says:

    i think all of you need to read a book called “the purity myth”

    i got on here trying to find where i could get a dress like hers. its something i wanted for a photo shoot. and WOW, if i were 16 again and i had the lot of you to judge me honestly i’d probably kill myself. and for all the crazy things i did when i was 16, no my mother did not agree but at the same time i’m more than sure not all of you were saints either.

    i don’t even know who this chick is and i completely disagree with all of you. i just saw a picture of her in this dress and wanted it.

    you all make me want to facepalm.

  73. Jo says:

    i like the lingerie kinda looks like something i would wear…if i was at home alone with my husband about to do some naughty things. Am I the only one that feels like everytime she opens her mouth my IQ drops.signifigantly.

  74. kelly says:

    I think she’s amazing,and all of you people who diss her are way too judgemental
    take a look at the rest of the worlds youth,you’ll realize that so many girls dress sluttier.
    also girls are starting to smoke in middle school,
    and dressing like a whore doesn’t mean she is one
    Miley acts like one; therefore if anything she should be considered a whore.

  75. edorf says:

    You rock!
    Wery unique!
    Have Your own style!

  76. asjdhfds says:

    i think a lot of people bash her because theyre jealous shes having fun with her life. yes, her eye makeup is far too heavy. but like the other person said, Cherie Currie (you spelled it wrong, and she was famous before the movie) was up on stage in lingerie at 15 and became a terminal cocaine addict and was a heavy smoker, but look at her now! she helps kids who have had drug problems and has been sober for years. i think its because there’s no way for a 15/16 year old girl (even if theyre already famous) to get noticed unless theyre dressing like this. nobody pays attention. smoking is obviously gross, but she’s not the only teenager who smokes because its “cool” a lot of teenagers do. and i highly doubt taylor swift invented the hair flip. there has been tons of famous people flipping their hair on stage probably before her mom was even born. i wouldnt want to be famous if i wasnt scaring somebody. and her styles not original for whoever said that. people just think its scary and original because no real rock and roll has come out for about a decade now. if this was the 70s no one would be complaining about her.

  77. lauren says:

    At least Taylor HAS GOT TALENT. and she is not a disney star. So it dosnt matter. WHy people hate miley so much is becasue hannah montannah is one of the most watched childrens show in years, and even years to come even though they have finished. 3 year olds watch hannah montannah, like myself ( i grew up with britney spears), these children will simply see miley turn into trash. I wouldnt be surprised if in 5 years we have 9 year old hookers. See the difference? 3/4/5/6/7 year olds dont listen to her music or watch gossip girl. DUH. Pay more attention to the lindsay lohans of today: Disney channel stars! yayyyyyyyy!
