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 »
“Gossip Girl” has gotten good lately. Like, really good. Blair fell in love with the Prince of Monaco and accepted his marriage proposal, even though Chuck is hell bent on getting her back. Meanwhile, Serena‘s cousin is totally single white female-ing her and is creepily moving in on Dan. But there are two characters who have all but disappeared from the “Gossip Girl” tableau—Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams. So I wasn’t hugely surprised to hear that Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr, who play them, won’t be series regulars for season five of the show.

Every now and then, you realize that you’ve been sold a bill of goods that just isn’t true. This is exactly what happened when I sat down to interview Taylor Momsen, who plays Jenny Humphrey on “Gossip Girl” and fronts the band, The Pretty Reckless, whose first full-length album, Light Me Up, comes out tomorrow. I was expecting a girl who constantly drops f-bombs, who can’t stop talking about porn, and who flashes her audiences even though she’s underage. I mean, she supposedly set her dog’s balls on fire! (Sadly, we got cut off before I could ask her if there was any truth to this rumor.)
But instead, the woman on the other side of the line was … totally sweet. And funny. And charming. Heck, she even signed off by telling me to be careful not to slip on the icy New York City sidewalks. There was hardly a hint of teenage rebellion in our entire conversation.
After the jump, Taylor talks about her new album, “Gossip Girl,” and her affinity for thigh-highs. Prepare to start adoring her. Keep reading »
