Why do we still feel like Taylor Momsen is the world’s rebellious teenage daughter? After all these years of her punk-rock look, after she’s spent years on the road fronting the Pretty Reckless, we still cringed a little when we saw pics of her onstage with Marilyn Manson earlier this week at the Golden Gods Awards. No, Taylor is not Cindy Lou Who or Jenny Humphrey. She is her own woman, with her own style. And she’s not even going to give you the names of the places she bought the clothing she wore for this morning’s Big Morning Buzz Live performance, just in case you’re some kind of poser trying to steal her look. Just kidding — she just didn’t know. Scroll down anyway and see what she had to say about it. Read more…
Taylor Momsen! A nude pump? That shoe doesn’t have nearly enough buckles! Nor is it even made out of Lucite! We don’t know what to think about the former Gossip Girl star’s makeunder, which she debuted at the Marchesa show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the Plaza Hotel today. If anything, we though New York Fashion Week would have been the perfect place to show off Taylor’s signature style, a.k.a. shredded t-shirts, an exposed garter belt and a look of utter disgust in humanity. No wonder the Pretty Reckless frontwoman looks like a beautiful dear in a set of fabulous headlights. At least Momen kept her smoky eye. Or…couldn’t figure out how to scrape it off.

Let us burn a pleather garter belt in memorium: according to her interview in Elle, Taylor Momsen quit acting, unless you consider “acting like every parent’s waking nightmare” to be part of the craft. “I quit acting, actually,” the teenager-turned-front woman told the magazine. “I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band and thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.” How is this girl living out everyone’s high school fantasy? 15-year-old us is burning with jealousy! To be fair, 15-year-old us also thought she was going to marry both Joshua Jackson and James Van Der Beek, so what did that little dweeb know?
Having bailed after five seasons as GG‘s Little Jenny, Momsen is currently touring Japan with her band Pretty Reckless. While there she can expose an entirely new continent to her special brand of “stripper boots” and audience make-outs, which even our 15-year-old self would find a little much.
We’ve never been to a Pretty Reckless show, but we’ll be sure to sport our finest lingerie when we finally do. Taylor Momsen, her band and a gaggle of half-naked fans got down last night in Barcelona, and the scene looked like a parent’s worst nightmare. We have to admit when we first saw these pics we dropped our best “I’m a mom and I’m appalled face!” But then we spent a second remembering the things we did at 17 (yes, Taylor is 17) and we quickly backed off. We did dumb stuff. At concerts. In our bra. Expressin’ yourself, and all that teenage jazz. We kinda get where these girls are coming from, but we’re still kinda like “Woah, ladies, chill it on the grinding!” You know?
Taylor Momsen! We’ve missed you! Where have you been? Distance must make the heart grow fonder because the longer she’s off our blog, the more we seek her out. And here she is in all her glory, getting off a bus in Vienna, Virginia to perform with her band The Pretty Reckless. Is it that we haven’t seen her in awhile, or did her eyes get even more raccoon-like? It seems that way but we’ve only got one eye to review, in this picture. And the HAIR. Limp but braided — way to change things up, Tay. There’s something so reassuring about the fact that her clothes are still shredded and the hooker-garters are still on. No matter what happens, we’ll always have that scowling, chalky, face to make us feel better about ourselves. Bless you, Taylor.
Our neighbors to the north in Canada are a nice people. They’ve never provoked us in any way. Which is why we feel it’s necessary to apologize to them for what Taylor Momsen inflicted on them this weekend during a performance with her band, The Pretty Reckless. Momsen, decked out in a shirt that read “I F— For Satan” and basically showed off all her goods during the set. And here we thought she’s behave on this, the holiest night of the year (Oscar night, of course). We thought wrong. For a better look at Taylor’s shirt, butt, and everything else she was showing off, check out our gallery below. We apologize in advance if you’re offended.
Oh, how we’re torn on this one. Taylor Momsen was spotted with a big ol’ rock on her left ring finger in Manchester this morning. Should we assume the 17-year-old hellion is betrothed? While it seems highly possible that Momsen doesn’t respect the marital implications of her jewelry—it’s not like she respects anything else—we also wouldn’t be shocked to see her “settle down” with some scuzzball she met flashing the crowd with The Pretty Reckless. The problem with playing What Would Taylor Momsen Do is that the answer is likely Anything You Put In Front Of Her. Maybe she just found the ring in that dumpster behind her.
It’s official, the Cee-Lo song “Forget You” (also known as “F— You”), is un-ruinable. Just about anyone can cover it and the end result will still be a catchy, perfect pop song. Case in point: we likedGwyneth Paltrow‘s version, and we are staunchly anti-Paltrow. To further prove that the song is incorruptible, Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless performed their version of it on BBC Radio 1 this weekend and shockingly enough, it’s pretty great too! Take a listen for yourself. Of course, all we could think while we were listening to this was “It must be killing Taylor right now to sing the censored version of this song.” But if there’s a lesson to be learned here, it’s that Taylor sounds great when she censors herself.
The hottest stars in music hopped the pond last night for MTV Europe Music Awards. If you thought Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Rihanna took fashion risks stateside, wait until you see what they did in Madrid! Interpret their eye-catching choices as crazy hot or just plain crazy; either way, they’re worth a closer look. Here are the 12 most mind-boggling get-ups worn across the Atlantic last night.
