Did Raccoon McPantless get a nose job?


Star Magazine has a photo examination of our favorite raccoon, Taylor Momsen. They are alleging that McPantless had a nose job, sometime around 2008, or perhaps 2009. They even got a doctor to chime in:

A lot has changed about Taylor Momsen’s appearance since she snagged the role of Jenny on Gossip Girl in 2007. Besides accenting her eyes with harsh raccoon like eye makeup, it looks like the 17-year-old has also gone under the knife and had a rhinoplasty.

“It appears Taylor has had a nose job,” says a NYC plastic surgeon named Dr. Michael Fiorillo. “Now it’s not as wide, and her nostrils appear to be slightly higher.”

Could her old nose grow back? Dr. Fiorillo says: “At her age, her nose is fully grown.”

CB and I were examining old photos of Raccoon, and we both saw a difference too – it’s subtle, but I do think she’s had some minor shaping done, and the bridge looks smaller. It’s so incredibly hard to tell, because the girl went from fresh-faced average-pretty girl to this raccoon monstrosity, and the makeup is so drastic.

In other Raccoon McPantless news, she recently gave a brief interview explaining why she’s so f-cked up. Guess whose fault it is? Mommy and daddy, of course. BUT – her parents do sound totally douchey. Momsen said:

“Everyone’s like, ‘Wow, why is she upset and why is she so miserable about things?’ My parents signed me up with Ford (modeling agency) at the age of two. No two year old wants to be working, but I had no choice. My whole life, I was in and out of school. I didn’t have friends. I was working constantly and I didn’t have a real life.”

Is this the answer to all of Raccoon’s problems? And seriously, her parents sound like a–holes. It’s one thing to encourage your child to follow their dreams and applaud every performance. It’s quite another to push your kid over and over and over ever since the kid was 2 years old. And that, children, is how raccoons are made.

    Oh wow, she’s so pretty under all that makeup…

    And isn’t her mother STILL her manager? Poor Racoon. =(

  2. anons says:

    wow, she really was quite cute before all the angst set in.

  3. Lois says:

    She’s SO pretty without the racoon eyes, and I wish she would realise that!

  4. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Her eyes look so dead now compared to when she was look fresh faced. She’s spiraling out of control.

    Poor raccoon.

  5. Isabel says:

    Oh, boy…she is such a pretty girl underneath that mess. I don’t get it.

  6. devilgirl says:

    Who cares if she did? I think it may be her face maturing and make-up, but if she did, no biggie, she isn’t the first.

  7. Rita says:

    Take note young ladies. This is what happens when you’re bitten by the rabid vampire celebrity bug.

  8. Vera says:

    I can see that it is possible she may have reshaped the tip, but after going through all the pictures, I’m leaning towards she didn’t get anything done to her nose. She used to have a healthy tan going that wasn’t the flat near-white she has now, and it pretty much just makes the shadows more prominent which gives a “natural” contouring to her face – plus she looks much more gaunt.

    And seeing as it has taken her, what? A year, maybe a year and a half to go from human to ghoul, I kind of have to wonder when she would have done this surgery. Seeing as there is little difference, I can believe it wouldn’t take that long to heal, but I know they have shot more Gossip Girl a few different times within the past year and a half, /and/ that she’s done stuff with her band. Wouldn’t there have been some pictures where someone noticed swelling or something? It wouldn’t have settled immediately, I wouldn’t think.

    However, comparing the third and fifth picture, it does look like it is pointing down more. The fourth picture kinda has to be thrown out for comparing as the shadow her nose creates on her cheek is making a bit on optical illusion. And the side-by-side comparison at the top doesn’t really show much, except that she has gotten sickly looking – the angle doesn’t show the curve.. Plus, though I don’t see much of a wideness change in that photo, she is a growing girl. She has lost a bit of weight – be it from growing up and losing a bit of baby fat or other means – since she looked like a living being. It wouldn’t be crazy to say that the thinning of her nose on the sides is from that, as you can see that her face has lost a bit of roundness in the side-by-side picture.

    But this is all my speculation, there will likely be some comment from her or someone representing her coming out at some point, and it would probably be a safe bet that it will be denying any work done.

    Racoon, please.

    Interesting comment about her parents – can’t work out whether she’s p’d with them or just stating the facts

    Can’t make up my mind whether TM is spiralling out of control (inc serious drugs etc) or its all a front and she is a workaholic carefully cultivating an image – or she’s just a rebellious pubescent teenager…

    It’s so sad whenever you see pictures of these young starlets. I guess we’re so used to it because we see it all the time but look at that last picture of her. She’s young so she hasn’t lost the baby fat in her cheeks but you can see the outline of her clavicle and shoulder bone. Obvious obvious OBVIOUS eating disorder. However much weight you lose your head and hand size will always indicate if you’re the right size for your body type-hence the lollipop head gag.

    I don’t know, it just bothers me that these images are so common we can look right past the starving victim of war physique in that last one and instead think about her hair and makeup. She looks like she’s a feeding tube and an IV away from cardiac arrest because she’s too thin.

  12. Raven Sparrow says:

    I’m not seeing it. I don’t think she did anything to her nose , I think it’s just her makeup that gives that impression. The white foundation evens out any shadows and darker areas giving the impression her nose is slimmer.

  13. ziggy says:

    she’s a pretty girl. her nose does not look to be tampered with.

  14. Pheonix says:

    She was so pretty before! and her nose looks the same…

  15. AMS511 says:

    is that the same person?!?!?! oh my goodness. she needs to wash her face. shes so pretty!

  16. BW says:

    No difference. She’s wearing MAKEUP, people! I draw shadowy lines down the sides of my nose with light brown eyeshadow all the time to make my nose look straighter and narrower, and across the bottom to make the length look shorter.

  17. Fefer says:

    She was more beautiful before. About her nose, I don’t see any difference. I don’t think she made plastic surgery, just a lot of make up to make it white like that!

  18. HotPockets says:

    I watched the Runaways last night and the whole time I thought how much Dakota Fanning’s Character “Cherie Currie” was a huge reflection of Taylor, it’s like she is trying to imitate her.

  19. Bodhi says:

    All this angsty shit is a front; if she hates her parents for making her work, why did she start a band in addition to her acting gig? Its at least twice as much work. And isn’t her mom her manager or something? She is full of shit

  20. lu says:

    Now i feel bad for her. Her parents are douches.
    About the nose, i just could it been the make up, sometimes noses look different with makeup, and also she is still growing up.

  21. jover says:

    Can’t we be done with this poseur; there are so many real bands out there – The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket, Tame Impala, The Black Keys,etc. – that deserve coverage not this poseur – if you want to be a rock star, get some talent and a real band poseur, not this contrived bs.

  22. honeyv says:

    i agree..she looked pretty before. now she’s a mess and she looks like she’s trying way too much to be Hollywood’s-rebel-rocker-girl/thing. i don’t like her.. but i don’t think she done anything to her nose. now she wears much more light makeup. that’s just all.

  23. Harmony says:

    Whenever someone is rebelling, like her, they have a reason for it and shouldn’t be judged unless they’re hurting someone else. Some commenters are all “oh, her parents suck, now its acceptable. she’s an exception to this type.” Guess what? She probably does have sucky parents and a million more problems. So does everyone. Let her do her thing and stop judging her for it…we all deal with our pain in some ways and some just happen to be less appealing then others. Lets let her, and other people be, can we?

  24. Teri says:

    I forgot that she is pretty, she must have some under linning issues for all that makeup

  25. Teri says:

    I agree with Harmony!!!!!

  26. Brooklyn says:

    she’s just paler but her nose isn’t any different.

  27. Liana says:

    Real rock? Listen to Seventh Void. They’re my friends and are awesome. As for the nose, no biggie if she did. Nothing wrong with a little nose reshaping.

  28. serena says:

    I do not like her, she’s so dumb and acts highty and mighty. But I don’t see a nosejob here, totally not.

  29. DiMi says:

    I definitely think she got a nose job. It’s subtle, but you can see that her nose has been slimmed.

  30. latam says:

    who told her it was a good idea to put lipstick not on her lips

  31. animacrackers says:

    Raccoon With out a cause. Seriously those this girl is doing some major rebelling. I’m sure she will eventually look back on how absurd she looks and laugh her ass off. I did

  32. zeb says:

    She is such a lame, poser and try hard.

  33. zeb says:

    Wake up people, it’s all an act to sell her shitty music and her brand.

  34. zeb says:

    Harmony: Yes but does the World have know about it?
