I’ll be honest, I don’t know how I feel about today’s announcement that ’80s cartoon favorite, “Jem & The Holograms,” is being made into a live-action movie. Mostly because three dudes who could not possibly understand the cultural significance of “Jem” are making it. They are: Scooter Braun, who manages, or attempts to manage, Justin Bieber; the producer of the “Paranormal Activity” movies; and the director of “G.I. Joe.” I mean, it would make more sense for, say, Drew Barrymore’s company, Flower Films, to reboot the classic, which is about a professional woman named Jerica who moonlights as a rock star named Jem. Well, whatever. It’s happening. The producers are looking for casting suggestions, and while I’m not entirely sure who I would like to see in the various roles, I whipped up a few badly photoshopped renderings of Jennifer Lawrence as Jem and Taylor Momsen as Pizzaz from The Misfits. Side note: How good does J. Law look with cotton candy-colored hair? Truly outrageous, no? [MTV]
“Once, my tampon string was put on the Internet when I was 15 because some asshole shot up my dress and it made big headlines. For a year, if you Googled ‘Taylor Momsen’ the tampon photo was the first thing that came up. When that happens, you just go, I really just don’t give a fuck, and you close the computer. People are going to say what they’re going to say, and the tabloids will always spin shit.”
Taylor Momsen explains why she finds fame “so fleeting and stupid,” talks about navigating being in the public eye at a young age and discusses how “sexuality and rock n’ roll go hand-in-hand” in a Daily Beast interview. She also drops quite a few f-bombs, which leads me to believe she gives a leetle bit more of a fuck than she lets on. Not that I blame her. She has every right to be angry. If the whole world saw my tampon string when I was 15, I’d be in hiding somewhere in Siberia. [The Daily Beast via Jezebel]
I understand that if you’re Misery Raccoon Taylor Momsen, you’re life is not necessarily about making sensible choices. This is a rugrat that left a lucrative and high profile career as a “Gossip Girl” to fulfill her rockstar fantasies as a singer in a band. Mental note, Taylor: Most of us just play Rock Band, you know? That said, she’s proven that her music thing is more than just a passing fling; Momsen is still rocking out with her lady cock out. Here she is filming a new video for fellow musician Tomomi Itano (she’s also of the Japanese mega-group AKB48), in deeply inappropriate shoes and a perilously short dress that could double as a wee rainproof tent.

Does anybody still watch “Gossip Girl”? I feel like every single person who’s on that show hates it so much and they’ve all pretty much acknowledged that the series needed to end already. So what do we spy here? Is that little Jenny Humphrey — aka Taylor Momsen — all dolled up for the finale? It seems the misery raccoon has returned to her home nest, straight off some horrid Pretty Reckless tour or other, to film one last time with Blair, Serena and LonelyBoy. And P.S., those Louboutins are crazy. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
So this is kind of a bummer: Taylor Momsen, ex-”Gossip Girl” ingenue and lead singer of the Pretty Reckless, strips down naked in this spoken word video … and the lyrics are pretty heavy. She’s definitely getting nude to signify the rawness of the words, not to be “sexy”; the words, which come from her song “Under the Water,” are quite disturbing. With lyrics like “If I cried unto my mother / she wasn’t there for me / Broken lines across my mirror show my face all red and bruised / And though I screamed and I screamed no one came running / I wasn’t saved from you,” it’s hard to tell if it’s just more of her bad girl posturing (see: egregious black eyeliner abuse, performing onstage with Marilyn Manson), or a genuinely concerning video. I wonder what the rest of the cast of “Gossip Girl” would think. (Video obviously NSFW.) [Huffington Post]
Well, at least someone takes Taylor Momsen’s music career seriously. The former “Gossip Girl” actress and lead singer for the band The Pretty Reckless performed with Manson at the Revolver Golden God Awards last night. Looks like a tasteful event. Sad I couldn’t make it. Next year!
Well isn’t this a nice change now. Taylor Momsen wearing something other than undergarments and bloody, ripped fishnet stockings with thigh-high boots that could be used as arsenal in their own rights. And doesn’t she just look lovely?
Taylor here was photographed at New York’s Fashion week, where she kept the company of Stacy Keibler, Bar Refaeli, and other prolific women not generally known for using electrical tape on their nippies, sacrificing goats onstage or wearing black leather all of the time and hooking up with questionably-aged music fans. Maybe girlfriend could take a few pointers from these classy ladies, huh? Read more…
That geeky girl in the floral prints and glasses from “Blossom” is dishing out sex advice? Damn, I must be old. Yes, Mayim Bialik has plenty to say about sex and she is dishing it out on Kveller.com, a Jewish parenting web site. With baby-making on the brain, Mayim quotes the Torah on waiting seven days, plus an additional five, for a woman’s most fertile time. It’s all part of being a good Jew, you see. ”Judaism loves love. We love sex. We are told it is a mitzvah to make love and to especially make love on Shabbat, when God’s presence is close,” Mayim explains. “A woman’s right to sexual satisfaction is detailed in her ketubah, her marriage contract, independent of pregnancy.” Keep reading »
Well, Taylor Momsen must have gotten the memo that everyone is giving lap dances at shows these days. While playing with her band, The Pretty Reckless, in Barcelona on Wednesday night, Taylor called for fans to hop on stage. Several of them stripped down to their bras. Then Taylor gave one of them a lap dance that looks like it got pretty randy. Silly Taylor. Wait until your 18th birthday. [PopEater] Keep reading »
