It’s no secret that I can’t stand the stupid antics of the talentless actress/singer known as Taylor Momsen, but her newest outbreak was one of stupidity more than recklessness.
During a recent concert in Scotland, Momsen said to the crowd:
“Glasgow, you are looking good tonight. We are The Pretty Reckless and we have heard that Glasgow is the craziest crowd in all of England.”
That would have been a nice shout out, had Glasgow been in England instead of Scotland.
The crowd quickly realize her mistake and began to boo and hiss at her.

The joke came while Momsen was on a radio show in New Zealand and comes shortly after a photo was leaked in which she had a tampon string malfunction.
The 17 year old spoke about sex, Justin Bieber and pretty much anything else she felt like babbling about during the interview/chat session.
She said of the priest encounter: Read the rest of this entry »

Gotta love teen celebrity gossip…it looks like teen sensation Miley Cryus is mad at Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen after Momsen slammed the constant comparison to herself and Miley, calling Miley’s music “Disney Bubblegum Shit.”
Here’s the full Momsen rant during an interview earlier this month:
“I’m not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus. I don’t care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we’ll go along for the ride,” and “I’m not dissing Miley personally. However, I do think the Disney bubblegum s*** that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression.”
I don’t see the big deal, pretty much everything Momsen said is correct and she never attacks Miley directly.
Sixteen year-old Gossip Girl actress Taylor Momsen says she has a knife collection and carries a favorite knife with her all the time, even on a plane, because it “relaxes her.” What’s more, it’s a switchblade, which last I checked is illegal in many countries, but most especially on a plane.
In a world where innocent children are wrongly on no-fly lists and thirsty seniors have to dump bottles of water before, it’s nice to see that airport security personnel are doing their job so thoroughly with imbeciles like Momsen, who claims she flew from New York to LA with some knives in her purse. But I guess when you’re 16 and promoting a bad called The Pretty Reckless, you have to come up with some gimmick to look cool. I mean, it’s not like it’s enough to wear torn see-through lace outfits, be a poser rockstar, and have an album called Make Me Wanna Die. On the other hand, the audio slideshow clip below has what’s probably one of her edgiest songs, Blender, showing that she does have some talent. (Warning: NSFW lyrics)
You may recognize her as Little J or Jenny Humphrey, her role from the hit TV series Gossip Girl, but 16-year-old Taylor Momsen wants to be known as a rockstar.
“I’ve been acting since I was 2,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I don’t dislike it by any means, but it’s a job to me. Music is who I am.” True enough, she’s been spending more time with her band, The Pretty Reckless, whose debut album is coming out this summer.
The band’s first single, “Make Me Wanna Die,” is part of the soundtrack of Kick-Ass, and is available for download on iTunes. A music video is also in the works.
I listened to the single on the band’s MySpace page, and I was surprised. I was expecting another Vanessa Hudgens/Demi Lovato/Selena Gomez sound-alike. Don’t blame me for being a cynic. All teen actresses who want to branch out to music end up dressing the same way and singing the same processed pop tunes.
For a 16-year-old, Taylor has a raspy, sexy, and grownup singing style. Now I know why she’s being compared to Hole’s Courtney Love. “Make Me Wanna Die” takes a few steps away from the usual emo, punk/rock, and pop tunes that I’m frankly getting sick of.
Listen to The Pretty Reckless here. Tell me what you think about Taylor’s singing. Do you prefer Taylor Momsen the actress or Taylor the rockstar?
Take whiff of the new VS scent, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Their website describes it as “Wild at heart. A punk princess. Rock chick meets très chic in this rebellious riff on vivid plum, hypnotic violet and sensual vanilla, the latest addition to our glamorous Sexy Little Things fragrance collection.”
I would’ve thought they were describing a Gossip Girl character. Well, lo and behold! Actress Taylor Momsen, wearing a rock chick outfit, hosted the Love Rocks launch held at Victoria’s Secret Soho store just last night.
She showed off the perfume’s rock ‘n roll packaging: a bold red lacquer bottle adorned with tattoo-inspired graphics, and a removable black leatherette rosette that you can throw on as an accessory. I want one of those!
