Raccoon McPantless is pantless, loaded & offensive on Revolver Mag


You know what? I could handle the pantlessness. I could handle the return of lingerie as outerwear. I would even handle the spackled-on raccoon eye makeup. What’s more, I could have even handled Raccoon McPantless holding a firearm. What I absolutely hate, however, is the combination of all of that, plus the fact that I can see all of her inner thigh and beyond. That’s a really f-cked up pose. Disgusting, really. She’s 17 years old. It would have been disgusting if she was 27 years old, but given her youth, this cover is officially in the PedoBear range. What else did we expect from Raccoon? What is this message that she’s sending us? “I will shoot you if you do not recognize that I. Am. Hardcore.” We get it.

Of course she’s trying to offend us. She thinks – in her feeble, sketchy, childish mind – that she’s the original, that no jailbait loser has ever tried to be “shocking” in this way before, that she’s opening our eyes to a world that is damaged and oh-so hardcore. I pity her.

    Yay! Free Slipknot poster!

  2. michael says:

    oh quit being such a hater CB. bitch rules. she owns her slut gear (which i absolutely love!) her band isn’t half bad. she’s a good actress. i just adore everything about this little biatch! taylor! call me!

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I think she looks hawt. I want those shoes for Halloween. LOL She doesn’t LOOK like she is trying to offend anyone, she dresses like that all the time.

  4. Anne says:

    Oh Puhlease!! Give me a break! Cherie Currie etc was dressing like that in the 70’s. Then it was hardcore and different. She’s a faded copy of real original rockers. Eventually she is going to look back at herself and laff.
    Or not if she is as deluded as Lindsey.

  5. jackie says:

    You know what is crazy?

    Without the raccoon eyes, I would NEVER have recognized her. I swear! Oh, I should mention I have never seen gossip girl.

  6. Green Is Good says:

    Dr. Frank-N-Furter (a Mad Scientist) called, and he wants his panties, garter belt, stockings and heels back.

  7. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “She’s a faded copy of real original rockers.”

    well said, Anne.

    everything she’s doing has been done before. and done better.

    that eye make up doesn’t look hardcore, just stupid.

    EDIT: nice RHPS reference, Green. though I doubt many of Raccoon McPantless’ fans would get it.

  8. gillie says:

    at least my adolescent embarassments (bad haircuts, yucky makeup, poor clothing choices…)are catalogued in private— hers are for everyone to see. Voluntarily, on her part. one day, if she makes it to 30, shell look back and wince.

  9. Riley says:

    I haven’t read the article yet or the comments but from looking at the picture I was reminded how wwwwaaayyyy back in teh 90s Jason Priestly and Luke Perry posed with guns on Vaniety Fair (I think). Anyway, I clearly remember Madonna calling them out for the guns (or at least I think I clearly recall). Does she know her Material Girl is now packing heat? What a good role model for young Lourdes and other 13 year old girls.

  10. Blaster says:

    And yet. People will still find her less offensive that Miley Cyrus. That is what boggles my mind. Like, either, you’re upset with the “sexualisation” of our youth OR you’re only more upset when said “youth” comes from the Disney channel. Like, you can only pick one, not both.

    Taylor was on a magazine cover at 14 in her underwear with the rest of Gossip Girl. Where was the outcry?: http://bit.ly/ELBcp And yes, I get that Hannah Montana was catered to young girls but if you think the demographic of Gossip Girl is for teenagers over 16, you’d be wrong. And what about her “Makes Me Wanna Die” video that she filmed when she was 16 and spent the whole video stripping??

    I don’t know why I’m ranting. I just kinda get frustrated when people use the words of Miley (when she was 14!!!!) against her, ie, I love Jesus and want to wait till marriage, and call her a hypocrite.

    Trust, if she was posed like this on a cover now, we would NOT hear the end of it for days.

    “She’s so ugly and untalented!! And she needs to fix her teeth!!”

  11. Laura says:

    Is her band even real or was it manufactured for her? I was watching a youtube performance, and the dudes all looked like they were in their mid 20s. And yes, she can sing, but she still has a long way to go as far as stage presence goes.

  12. Delta Juliet says:

    That make-up has got.to.go. It doesn’t look hardcore, it looks stupid.

  13. Sarah says:

    She really is a pretty girl without the raccoon eyes. I don’t understand the point in those.

  14. a says:

    without the raccoon eyes she looks a lot like scarlett johansson.

  15. Kitten says:

    I totally agree that when she hits 30 and looks back she will be cringing with embarassment. To me, she doesn’t *own* this look at all. It always seems like she’s trying soooo hard. Maybe you have to be a little older to see through her shtick? *shrugs*

  16. TQB says:

    @Blaster, I do think there is a significant difference between Miley’s image/fan base and Taylor’s, but the minute I saw this cover, all I could think was “nope, not OK. Just as unacceptable as Miley.”

    There’s a line. If Taylor wants to be a bitchy rock star, fine. But your right, it doesn’t matter that she was never a Disney product, she’s still 17. Put some GD pants on.

  17. nycmom10024 says:

    Look what happened to Cindy Loo Hoo, I knew that Grinch was scary she hasn’t slept since.

  18. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Cher has done this look FOREVER!!! This girl is not bringing anything to the table that hasnt been there all along.

    Anywho, I think the girl is Bipolar. If you look between Racoon eyes and the other pic, you can see crazy in the Racoon pic.

    Just sayin.

  19. Cat Burrito says:

    What is acceptable about a child looking like a prostitue? Even if she is agreealbe to looking like this, as a society we should reject this type of marketing ploy. Lets not get desensitized to children being posed and exposed in a sexual nature. It should be an unacceptalbe standard.

  20. Kolby says:

    You can see “crazy” in the raccoon pic because that’s what she wants you to see. That’s her “dead eyes make me look hardcore, cool, and possibly stoned and/or drunk off my ass” look. It’s on purpose. And it’s gross.

  21. Alarmjaguar says:

    I’m not trying to start anything, but I think it is interesting that we all freak out about what she is wearing, but not about the firepower — classic American reaction: oh, no, sexuality, but violence, hey, ok

  22. coucou says:

    Yesterday, i saw a poor little blonde girl walk by with racoon eyes…and i knew who she was emulating…the kids really do think it’s cool and hot – look at what yungdumfullakum Mickael wrote up top…whether we like it or not, shit repeats itself, or should i say, recycles itself…but that doesn’t mean it’s worth recycling…it is kind of sad to see such a young girl look like such a ho…oh well.

  23. Alarmjaguar says:

    I should add I’m horrified by the whole thing, and that indeed, she tries too hard.

  24. Sassy says:

    I’ll assume this underage GIRL is an orphan? Because where the fuck are her parents to allow her to pose like some gun-toting stripper on a magazine? Nasty. I’m not a prude by any stretch, far from it, but why must we sexualize our young so damn early? Baffles me.

    And THAT MAKE UP…Jesus. Looks redonkulous, definitely NOT hardcore.

  25. Kitten says:

    @Alarmjaguar: I started writing a comment about the gun but then deleted it and yes, I do think it’s gross to glamorize guns. The “gun as prop” thing has just been done so many times (most recently the Lindsay Lohan/Tyler Shields pictorial). We’re at the point where guns are viewed more as “accessories” and we lose sight of the functionality behind them. Anyway, it’s pretty sick but it’s been discussed many times on this blog.

  26. Mr. Anon E. Mouse says:

    So tell me again why men aren’t supposed to want to bang the daylights out of this girl? Oh? Because she’s underage? But, apparently, she’s already very sexually active, so SOMEONE’S having sex with her. Am I just supposed to look and fantasize about having sex with her? Oh, that’s wrong, too? Pity. So what am I supposed to get out of this?! What’s my take-away?

  27. connie says:

    does she know that britney spears did the posing in her underwear on a magazine cover underage first?

  28. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Currie, et al., didn’t exactly come out of that experience unscathed. Anyway, she’ll still look a fright with this getup when she’s of age, and most of the eighteen-year-olds (all) I’ve met didn’t go through a magical metaphorsis on the nights of their birthdays that turned them into reasoned, matured intelligent adults overnight–you just need a random break-off point. I don’t know, we’ll see.

  29. Tracy9s says:

    I can’t stop laughing at this ridiculous cover!! I kind of feel sorry for how clueless she is. It will be a tough road for her, filled with tons of regret I’m sure.

  30. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Oh hell, today is the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. Well, I don’t know how much people care for Anglo-Saxons, but let’s pay respect to them hacking up people with axes and getting trampled by Normans, huh? All split down the middle and other such wonderful brain nuggets? You know what would be good? If all of the guys shaved the backs of their heads (yes, the guys will shave) and paint on their skulls (in the very sexiest shade of paint available, of course) ‘Hastings? I Barely KNOW Her!’ And we’ll all laugh and slap each other on our various surfaces like that made any sense. And while the ladies do inappropriate things with the bows and arrow and make inappropriate comparisons betweens the horses and the men in their wake, someone will miss the very obvious ‘Conquerer, I Barely Even–‘ before asking for some mouthwash and losing consciousness. For lo, that was the basis upon which that battle was fought! For the wedge of the wench, the bump of the goose, of the bait of the jail–one can assume. These are things of which we can all be very proud whilst figuring out how to brave the chilly, chilly intermission between now with its ending of Oktoberfest (in my home town version, at least) and that certain night when everyone decides to dress as a slutty version of something that already exists.

  31. Maddie says:

    She comes off as “wow let’s see how I can shock the masses” instead of doing her own thing because she’s into it.

    I saw this mag cover today at Barnes and the first thought was isn’t she like 17 yrs old and how is this not child porn?

  32. lilred says:

    Lol @green is good, however Dr.Frankenfurter is just a sweet transvestite…what’s her excuse?

  33. rose says:

    Have you ever seen people half naked at the beach? Alright then….

  34. Katie M says:

    First, I think there are a few Katies who have been posting, so from here on, I will go as Katie M.

    I think the cover is icky. I think she is way to young to be posing like that! I have a 17 year old brother (quite a bit younger than me, lol), and he’s a great kid, but he’s a KID. He doesn’t necessarily consider down-the-road consequences. Who’s to say that someday Taylor won’t grow up, have a few kids, and think that posing for this picture was a bad idea.

    I suppose the first thing I thought when I saw this picture was “Where was her mom during this photo shoot?!” I am a mom myself, and there is no way that I would ever be comfortable with this!

  35. rose says:

    plus, every look has been done before, so nothing is even original anymore. So I don’t know why people are bashing her for “unoriginal”

  36. Anne de Vries says:

    I’m amused that I seem to be one of the few who is far more freaked out by the guns than by the rest of it. But hey, I’m European, maybe that’s it.

    Don’t get me wrong, the rest is skeezy as hell too, she is trying so. damn. hard. and it’s all just icky and desperate.

    But the GUNS?! WTF.

  37. Raccoon Princess says:

    Yep, us raccoons are bowlegged. She’s got that imitation down as well.

  38. Uh says:

    @ Mr. Anon E. Mouse

    I won’t get into the whole “you could just ignore it” thing – no one can force garbage on your mind/body without your consent. It sounds like you’ve made a choice already, so I’ll just move on to the “if you’re gonna” step…

    You’re correct that age doesn’t matter much, but you’d better have some fantastic blow if you want a piece of that gal. So I hear.

  39. girl says:

    I am no gun expert but why the F#$k are both her fingers on the trigger? That is a HUGE no-go. Doesn’t matter if she *thinks* the gun isn’t loaded or they are replicas. You do NOT put your finger on the trigger unless you are going to fire. Basic gun safety. Point blank and period.

    P.S. No one needs to see 14yo taint on a magazine cover.

  40. Ferguson. says:

    She has no idea what she’s doing, and that’s what being a teenager is all about.. but then again, everything she does is on the public eye, so that’s what makes it worse. I have a friend who is a model and has been doing photoshoots like this since she was 16, but she’s not famous so everything’s ok, right?

    Whatever, the only thing that bothers me is that she’s considered as a role mode by a lot of innocent girls.

  41. cantbelievethis says:

    Where are this child’s parents? I saw a picture of her on stage smoking, isn’t that illegal for a 17 yo in any state? Why isn’t she getting fined?

    Magazines should not be allowed to use covers like this with minors (Taylor, Miley, etc).

    And the guns are just wrong, wrong, wrong. Let’s glamorize teens playing with guns. That’s going to help.

  42. John W Sharp says:

    Poor Taylor, she always looks stoned or intoxicated. She does’t even try to hide it. She doesn’t even try to focus her eyes.

    The most important thing though is that she seems so unhappy.

  43. Liana says:

    She’s not shocking, she’s not offensive, she’s just a big ol’ phony. I occasionally sing with a band that’s fairly heavy metal and springs from some old defunct hardcore bands and I never dress like that. I wear jeans, a tank, my docs, and yeah, I go a little heavy on the eyeliner, but nothing like THAT! And no, I’m not jealous, because music is my hobby, production is my job.

  44. Kitten says:

    @36 (sorry can’t read your name)-It is most definitely an American thing. Guns are in our constitution, dammit! But seriously, half my family lives in France and they just don’t understand it. There are a lot of interesting theories about why this country is so obsessed with guns but if you don’t feel like reading up, I suggest you rent “Deadwood”. Gives a pretty good idea of how the gun-slinging American cowboy charicature came to fruition.

  45. california angel says:

    Rammstein’s coming to the states! Rad!

  46. citysuede says:

    looks just like xtina in dirty girl, doesn’t she? before bateman cleaned up her look?

  47. Johanna says:

    @ Green is god

    that was hilarious!

  48. liz says:

    This cover and this girl are just stupid.

  49. Macheath says:

    “She thinks – in her feeble, sketchy, childish mind – that she’s the original, that no jailbait loser has ever tried to be “shocking” in this way before, that she’s opening our eyes to a world that is damaged and oh-so hardcore. I pity her.”

    So she’s a lot like Lady GaGa then?
    Sorry, couldn’t help myself 😀

  50. Sally says:

    She’s 17? Ew! Like another poster said, shouldn’t this be counted as underage porn or something??

  51. Laura says:

    This just made me laugh so much.
    She’s a joke, it’s all been done before, and better.
    She’s not shocking, or hot, or so hardcore, she’s just a wannabe and it just makes me laugh because she thinks she is all that.

  52. chasingadalia says:

    I feel dirty having looked at that…

    Yeahhh, I’m going to go take a cleansing shower now.

  53. PennyLane says:

    I wonder if she’s ever even SHOT a gun.

  54. Trillion says:

    Wait a sec….Rammstein’s coming to the states? I’m so there. Saw ’em last time around. Epic. And that’s not even “my kind” of music.
    I’ve only heard one song of hers (in Kick-Ass) and I have to say, it was not bad at all. In fact, I kinda liked it.

  55. original kate says:

    “I think the girl is Bipolar. If you look between Racoon eyes and the other pic, you can see crazy in the Racoon pic.”

    @ johnny depp’s girl: so you can tell people are bipolar just by looking at them? someone better call the APA and let them know to throw out their diagnostic tests. seriously, what an asinine thing to say.

  56. kate 2.0 says:

    @katie m – this kate also has a brother quite a bit younger (18). At his hs graduation, I was FLOORED by the appearance of many of those girls. I’m not a mother, but I can sure with 100% certainty that my mother would have kicked my a** if I tried to leave the house looking like that!! And she would have given a damn if I was pissy about it or if it meant she wasn’t a “cool” mom who was “friends” with her kid. Not to speak out of turn – but moms everywhere should be parental, not one of the cool kids, and keep their girls from looking like teenage hookers! And also from ACTING like teenage hookers – my brother is a very handsome kid and GOOD GRAVY came up and made uh…suggestions? propositions? to him (in front of his parents, sisters, GRANDPARENTS) that would make a sailor blush. Ladies – decorum! please!

    @kitten – sigh. Really? Yes, the wild west cowboy mythology is part of the our gun-owner culture. But it goes back much further. To fully understand how the right to bear arms became embedded in our national psyche requires studying colonial times, the Revolutionary War, etc. I’m not saying nothing has changed – we need to adapt our laws to evolving social norms. But to characterize gun ownership as just a macho holdover from the wild wild west ignores massive chunks of history and makes us seem just too silly or stubborn to change.

    Sorry, not trying sound all Charlton Heston NRA here (don’t own a gun, support gun control). Just saying its deeper than playing macho cowboy – I feel like people in other countries think we run around trying to be John Wayne and blowing each others brains out 🙁 And we’re more than that, no?

  57. Prunella says:

    She’s 17 years old. It would have been disgusting if she was 27 years old

    I could not give less of a crap about Taylor Momsen than I do now, but I want to commend you on not hyphenating the ages in your story.
