Taylor Momsen’s mom was there when Raccoon flashed her boobs to the crowd

We recently saw video and a photo of still underage Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen, 17, flashing her pasty-covered boobs to the crowd while performing with her hard rock band, The Pretty Reckless. Momsen has worked hard at cultivating a laughably cliche “badass” personality, and while it seems so predictable and done to death people are still worried about her, and wondering why her parents aren’t putting a stop to it. We may have the answer in this follow-up report from Hollywood Life, which broke this story and claims that Taylor’s mom was right there in the crowd cheering her on. There’s no word whether she hung her head in shame after Taylor’s stunt and/or if she told her to cut it out afterwards. Since Taylor is singing in a rock band and running around without pants and with ten layers of liquid eyeliner I guess we can assume she has the complicit approval of her parents. (I’m guessing her parents are still married based on her wikipedia entry and this biography from TVGuide) Here’s Hollywoodlife’s report:

Taylor Momsen shocked everyone when she flashed the crowd at her Pretty Reckless concert at NYC’s Don Hill’s club,Oct. 21, and HollywoodLife.com was there in the audience of about 65 fans! But, we can now also reveal that Taylor’s mom, Colette Momsen was also in attendance! Not only did Taylor don stripper heels, and a necklace that read “Slave,” at the PAPER Magazine & Express Celebrate “Rock The Sidewalk” event, her mom seemed to be totally fine with her 17-year-old daughter’s performance!

We spoke to Beverly Hills psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman, to discuss why Taylor’s mother would tacitly allow such over sexualization of her underage daughter.

“[Her behavior] could be directed towards her stage mom, who is obviously egging her on in order to vicariously enjoy her fame,” believes Dr. Lieberman. “Taylor is following in the footsteps of Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears whose moms are actively working on making them superstars, regardless of whether they self-destruct in the process.”

It does sound like another Dina Lohan situation, although I guess we can’t judge Taylor’s mom until we actually see her in an interview. I did find these photos of Taylor’s mom, and she dresses young and fashionably. So is it her mom’s fault that Taylor is flashing her boobs and donning stripper gear on stage? She doesn’t seem to be doing much to stop it now does she?

Here’s Taylor’s mom Colette. I guess we know where Taylor got her style:

    Oh, I’m sure both of her parents must be very proud.

  2. Liana says:

    I just can’t with this girl. Yeah, I was in bands and acting when I was seventeen, I even sang with some neo punk and hardcore bands, but I didn’t look or act like she does. I guess I didn’t need the attention as much.

  3. Reasonable says:

    Well, someone has to pay the bills in that family! On a serious note, I don’t think Taylor is going to go the same way as Lohan or even Courtney Love. Something about her just seems so contrived; it’s like she is acting a part and not really being who she wants to be. It does not feel real.

  4. oh-bb says:

    Agreed, it doesn’t feel real. Even when she did the flash, it looked like something choreographed that she didn’t really feel; just part of the show. And not even interested except for her age. I get a real weird vibe from her.

  5. Sarah says:

    Taylor’s mom looks greasy.

  6. Dani says:

    Kat Von D? Is that you?! Oh..my bad.

  7. Diane says:

    Is that last picture Taylor? How pretty.

    Another great mom-pimp, just what the world needs.

  8. Samigirl says:

    Her mother looks like a 17 year old, herself! No good is going to come from this.

  9. serena says:

    two years ago, Taylor was so..NORMAL.
    Refreshing, nice and cute.
    And now she’s.. well…

  10. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    If her mum was there, then that really says it all…

    Taylor has just turned 17 & she has obv had quite a few r’ships, drinks alcohol, smokes, strips almost naked and has been hospitalised for ‘exhaustion’ (aka Hollywood drug ovedose!)

    WTF!!! Def best friend parent rather than actual disciplinarian mum. What is with these parents who just want fame at the cost of their children’s lives??? Disgusting

    BTW, I think I read an interview that Taylor’s dad comes at w/e’s so assumed they were split up

  11. crab says:

    @ Dani, I was going to say the same exact thing! She does look like Kat Von D doesn’t she!

  12. Praise St. Angie! says:

    agree with the Kat Von Fug resemblance.

    if you hadn’t labeled that pic indicating it’s her mom, I would have thought it was Kat.

    and that’s NOT a good thing.

  13. Kelly says:

    WOW! I had never seen a picture of her mom before. Now, all is clear… muttonmuttonmuttonmuttonLAMB

  14. Kitten says:

    I hate hate hate those extra-long extensions that look more like a horse’s tail than human hair. Gross.

  15. julie says:

    I have a 17 yr old daughter, and she laughs at this girl and says she gross. While my daughter is not perfect, she does not go out of her way to be skanky, which is what raccoon girl does. My daughter is enjoying her senior year in high school and looking forward to college. She works as a hostess at a restaurant, and Im very proud that she is a normal girl. I would never put up with the shenanigans of a girl like this, even though we could certainly use the money, but it is not the responsibility of any teenager to support their parents. I cannot stand these types of mothers, there should be a law preventing this type of thing. It could be called the Lohan law or something.

  16. omondieu says:

    I’m curious to know the average age of her audience. Do kids her age listen to her? People her bandmembers’ ages?

    Either way, coupled with her antics, it’s way creepy…

  17. Lisa S. says:

    I have three opinions on this. #1. She really needs to stop trying to be the next Cherie Currie. #2. It is very disturbing that not only did her Mother allow her to do that onstage, but that she watched! Gross. #3. Her Mom looks remarkably like Kat Von D.

  18. LisaMarie says:

    Wow, without all that makeup on you can see that she really has gorgeous eyes. Hopefully she realizes it at some point and stops caking on all that black crap.

  19. Bobby the K says:

    Looks like she had x strips electrical tape over them. And that too has been done a great many times before.

    It’s not hard rock, listen to Slayer whoever wrote that.

  20. Randomness says:

    I thought her mom was that evil looking swan thing from the Black Swan movie trailer. Looks like Halloween came earlier this year!

  21. original kate says:

    if my sisters or i had done that my mother would have yanked us off the stage, given us a smack upside the head and taken us home. then again, we would not have been allowed to dress like a truckstop whore. perhaps that’s why my parents raised 4 daughters and none of us had an eating disorder, an STD, a DUI or had to go to rehab.

  22. jover says:

    I take exception Kaiser to your description of her band as “hard rock”; Led Zep was hard rock this is just cheesy and contrived as others have posted. Omondieu my son’s in college has eclectic tastes from jazz and heavy metal to folk and the guitar gods, and has friends in bands – and no-one listens to her, in fact few have even heard of her. It’s as though she’s acting out a fantasy, not even trying to be a real rock singer, and I’m just going to guess that this is part of mom’s fantasy too, but it will come to an abrupt end because eventually you have to sell and tour and this silly child aint even close to that.

  23. No Sensei says:

    lol @ ‘It could be called the Lohan law or something.’

    The problem is any violations would go unpunished…

  24. Jenna says:

    grade A parenting for u right there! she has a good voice tho.. and in that pic without all the makeup, she’s gorgeous. i think she’ll grow out of it.

  25. Camille says:

    I said it on the other thread, and might as well post it again here.

    What’s next for this girl? Playboy when she turns 18? Or maybe a sex tape. *Shudder*

  26. The Bobster says:

    As contrived as the Janet Jackson flash.

  27. hjsplit says:
