Taylor Momsen is hardcore, says “sh-t” live on morning television


Taylor Momsen has taken her pantless brat act to London, where she seems to be pulling dual-promotional duties for Gossip Girl and her band, The Pretty Reckless. Once again, I’m just going to say it: this girl is 16 years old. Look at her skinny little legs in those trashy thigh-highs! Look how short that shirt/dress is. And it’s fair to say that those sunglasses are hiding yet another day spent in raccoon makeup.

Yesterday, Taylor appeared on Britian’s This Morning and she talked about whether she would come back next season on Gossip Girl (she wouldn’t confirm). She was also asked about criticism about her online and if that bothered her, to which Taylor replied – on live television – “There is if you care but if you do what I do, you just don’t give a sh-t… Can I not say that?” She was told “not really” and she replied cheerfully “Sorry!” She’s so hardcore. Here’s the video of the incident. The on-air sh-t bomb happens at roughly 4:00 in this video:

Once you actually listen to her, it’s obvious that she’s actually a somewhat bright girl, although misguided, if that’s the right word for it. I mean, sure, I was an a–hole when I was 16 years old too. But was I this much of an a–hole? Nope. I end up totally distracted by her eye makeup every time I see her, and it takes away from her half-way decent and mature attitude about fame. Who taught her to do that to her lower eyelid? She must go through a package of eye shadow a day. And what’s on her lip? A cold sore? Or a mole?

By the way, a few days ago Taylor “clarified” her recent comments about Kurt Cobain. When asked whether or not she was jacking Courtney Love’s look and vibe, she told Entertainment Weekly I don’t wanna be Courtney Love—I wanna be Kurt Cobain. He’s brilliant and his songs are genius. The Hole records are great. Everyone always compares me to Courtney Love because they think we like dress the same and we both have blond hair, wear lipstick and dresses. But I’m sorry, don’t a lot of girls dress like that? I look at Nirvana. I don’t look at Hole.” When MTV asked her about that quote a few days ago, Taylor clarified: “Everything is taken out of context. Everyone compares me to Courtney Love. Courtney Love is great, sure, but in all honesty, I’m not trying to be Courtney Love. I would rather be Kurt Cobain, [because] I wrote the record. I’m not either [of them]. I’m saying I would like to be John Lennon, I would like to be Liam Gallagher, I would like to be Robert Plant … should I keep going? You look up to your idols. I grew up listening to the Nirvana records, not the Hole records. And I’m sorry we both have blonde hair and play rock music. That’s it.” She doth protest too much.

    No matter what she does, she looks like a little girl playing dress up and trying way too hard. It’s laughable.

  2. ams1 says:

    @ lucy2-yeah…agreed. go buy some pants!

  3. Aitch says:

    I could take her more seriously if she got off of the Lolita grunge costume.

  4. lem says:

    I agree that the eye makeup is distracting, and maybe she should cover up a bit, but seriously, give the girl a break. She’s more realistic and mature about her fame than most celebs twice her age AND she is actually working for her fame, not going a la Kardashian/Blohan style. I’m willing to give her attitude/wardrobe a pass just for that reason alone.

  5. Anne says:

    She always looks rediculous. Like she’s dressed for Halloween. It never looks natural on her. She tries too hard.

  6. cedar falls says:

    I’ll give her a pass – she’s 16! At that age we all had this idea that we were, like, totally rebellious and knew everything. Factor in an awful lot of cash and the media telling you how cutting edge & fashionable you are and it’s bound to skew your behaviour. I doubt very much, unlike a certain Ms. C. Love, she’ll be as obnoxious in her forties – either she’ll have done the growing up necessary to maintain a career or faded into obscurity.

  7. Jazz says:

    Go back to school brat!

  8. EMV says:

    she’s 16 and it’s obvious that she needs to be guided in another direction. she is a poser in my eyes. “You are not original!!!”

  9. Stephy85 says:

    I give her a pass also. She’s poised and seems intelligent and mature…

    On another note, I hate these interviewers…They, basically the man interviewer, keep interrupting and talking over her…Good gawd. They’re terrible interviewers!

  10. Dusky says:

    *raises hand* I just have to protest at the comments saying ‘every 16-year-old thinks they’re hardcore/rebellious/a-hole/know-it-all/etc.’ I happen to be 16, and I’m proud to say that I’m pretty much not like that. XD

    Now 14/15… that was a different story. But not 16. ;]

    As for this Momsen brat, I can’t stand her. She’s so fake, I bet the back of her neck says “made in china” (I can’t remember where I heard that one, but I’m usin’ it anyway. :P) She’s so boring.. and the raccoon makeup…please. She would look so much better if she just tried a classic smoky eye or something. XDD She’s not ‘sexy’ or whatever she’s trying to be… because she’s just trying to hard for it to take, you know? ANd I’ve heard her band, and personally I think they suck. <_< Just my opinion. XD

  11. lena says:

    bride of chucky is all i see when i look at her

  12. dd says:

    i just love this girl
    we all need new mischa\lindzi in our life!
    ha ha lol
    any way i love her style and i know she is stupid and a wanabe[in the las ep
    sereana say you wanabe wahthever lol]

  13. Rose says:

    She’s 16, calling her names is FAR more ridiculous than anyway she is acting. Jesus, my daughter is 18, finished college this week, is a good kid and was STILL a handful at 16, so give it a rest.

  14. Kittypants says:

    I can’t get over how thin her legs are in the top pic, she looks like a stork. With too much make up on.

  15. Louise says:

    She puked outside in the car park after the interview, it was in the UK Press. Classy Girl.

  16. Sudini says:

    She’s rediculously annoying. She seems way, WAY too impressed with herself and needs to lighten up.

  17. Boombeeba says:

    This byotch will Never have à serious Music career

  18. Ron says:

    Cindy Lou Who is so hardcore!

  19. Nia Jolie says:

    Where are this girl’s parents?

  20. Eden says:

    Whats up with her friends face…?

  21. imalawyer says:

    I’m sorry, but I’d take Miley Cyrus over this girl any day. Miley may only be seventeen but she isn’t giving us fake teen angst and dropping s-bombs like this girl. So like I said I’d take sexy a little too soon over wanna be angry/emo any day.

  22. Jonique says:

    I just want to say that, I’m 15, and I have a similar style to Taylor’s, except it is way toned down compared to hers. I like the rocker-chic sort of look, but I don’t look like I work in a strip club. Anyway, away from her appearance…

    I think she seems a bit arrogant. But I do admire her work ethic. She does work hard. But it’s her attitude that gets me. I don’t know anyone as big headed… So it’s not just our age group. She seems really ungrateful for what she has, and has made some really stupid comments about Haiti, etc. The “I don’t give a fuck about anything because I’m so punk” attitude.
    She just seems like she’s trying to hard to be “original” or “iconic” when most of the girls I know dress like her (minus slutty stuff). I think she tries to be older than what she is. But whatever. I think if she had a better way about her, I’d really like her. She gets on my nerves.

    And I think if I’d grown up like her, rich, with my parents letting me do anything I want, I’d be as bratty as she is.

  23. marie says:

    I’ll like her better when she get to use some pants… but at the moment I’ll pick her over Miley xD

  24. RR says:

    To be honest, she comes across as pretty intelligent in the interview. I don’t think she’s really any more rebellious or scandalous than I (or probably most) teenagers are. I mean, with the kind of money, fame, publicity, etc. she has at 16, I really don’t think her behavior or attitude is shocking. To be honest, it’s refreshing compared to the fake-fake-fake PR production that is Miley Cirus/Jonas Bros/etc. At least she seems… authentic, if not cliche.

  25. Emily says:

    RR, I agree, it is a nice change from the goody-goody image we keep getting from the Jonas bros, The Bieb etc. But this biatch isn’t hardcore, despite her choice to not wear pants.

  26. YeahRight says:

    No one should wonder as to why younger and younger females are becoming overtly sexualized. Any young girl who dreams of show business (and which one doesn’t), sees that to become famous, rich, wanted and revered without much effort you have to put out or act like a slut.
    Look at their role models.

  27. Alexis says:

    Oh yeah, sure she’s had such a hard fucking life.

  28. thebutlerdidit says:

    There’s nothing genuine about her. That said, she gets a pass, Cyrus doesn’t? How hypocritical.

  29. MingMing says:

    What a hideous little child!

  30. Ana says:

    When you try so hard to be different you end up being exactly the same.

  31. elena says:

    My god she is such a poser! no one buys your “im a rockstar” act so stop acting like a little brat because youre not better than anyone else and seriosly since when was dressing like a prostitute rock and roll. shes gross and all that crap about her not caring about fame? look at old interviews of her she used to love the attention she is so FAKE
