While some adults, like the questionable fellow in front of the stage last night’s London performance, are glad to see the scantily-clad Taylor Momsen and her Pretty Reckless kick off their European tour, most parents may be less than enthusiastic. Remember the crap storm when Katy Perry posed with a knife? Well, the 16-year-old Gossip Girl star had to go and praise her knife collection to The Metro.
I have a knife collection. I have my favourite black knife with me all the time, it’s a switchblade. It relaxes me to flick it. I close it and open it…I took them through security, took them on the plane, opened my bag to get my wallet in LA and they fell out. I was like ‘holy s—.’
Though we’re going to assume she’s unaware that knife crime is a big deal in England, it’s unlikely Taylor gives a crap anyway. “I don’t f***ing care,” Taylor said last January. “I didn’t get into this to be a role model. So I’m sorry if I’m influencing your kids in a way that you don’t like, but I can’t be responsible for their actions. I don’t care.” See more of that punk rock bravado in the gallery below.
