Taylor Momsen seriously has a death wish, or at least a slapped-upside-the-head wish. In her new interview with SPIN magazine, Taylor once again suffers a severe attack of verbal diarrhea, this time expounding on her weirdly antagonistic feelings toward Rihanna. Thoughts like, “People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna’s wearing f*ckin’ leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.” OMG, Taylor.
First of all, we forgot Momsen owns the patent on leather jackets. Glad we cleared that up. Second of all, girl-child please. Taylor is clearly forgetting the most cardinal rule of trash talk etiquette. You do not rip on a woman with a neck tattoo. Period. There is nothing more rock than a neck tat, end of story. And if said woman’s tattoo may or may not be misspelled? Look, we’ve all seen Rihanna dance on a tank; you think she wouldn’t drive that thing into the side of your house?
17-year-old Momsen also held hold court on her particular brand of fashion, describing her signature ripped-fishnets-and bleachy-blonde mop look as “high-class hooker,” undoubtedly drawing the ire of actual high-class hookers the world over. “I dress for myself,” Taylor said. “Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I’m 17, then that person’s a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter.”
You heard it here first, folks. Only scumbags feel skeeved out by Taylor’s constantly-visible underwear and towering Frankenstein heels. Now if you’ll excuse us, there’s a National Scumbags of America meeting we are guest-speaking at tonight, and we don’t want to get caught in traffic. [Photo: Getty Images/Splash News Online]
