“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 »
I’ve never looked at Taylor Momsen and said: “Gee, I wish I could dress like her!” But I have studied Lourdes Ciccone Leon trying to figure out her style secret. So I’m only half embarrassed to admit that I actually enjoyed perusing the Material Girl section during a recent trip to Macy’s. While most of the fashions screamed “junior’s,” I did find some that got my style gears grinding. Keep reading »
Dare I say Taylor Momsen actually looks sexy in this ad for John Galliano’s Parlez Moi D’Amour fragrance? She has on her usual stockings and short dress, but that Galliano flavor just makes her more sultry and believable. [Design Scene] Keep reading »
“I’m a promoter of masturbation. Don’t sleep around—learn yourself first! Guys do, but girls don’t. And that’s why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good. You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance. Because I don’t think sex is something people should be afraid of. It’s part of human nature, so I don’t think it should be so shameful—particularly for girls and young girls.”
– Taylor Momsen, 17, quite eloquently, I think, sings the praises of self-love. [The Guardian U.K.] Keep reading »
Looks like Taylor Momsen‘s finally getting what’s been coming to her with that foul attitude. She’s been expelled from Constance for volatile behavior. “Gossip Girl” announced that Momsen’s character, Jenny Humphrey, will be sent on an indefinite hiatus from the show. While she’s only been on a few episodes this season, it looks like her scheming at the Saints and Sinners masquerade is the last we’ll see of her this season. I think that means she’s fired. R.I.P., Little J. Keep reading »
Yes, you read that right. Seventeen-year-old Taylor Momsen purposefully bared her chest in the middle of a New York City concert this week. I can only guess it was part of Momsen’s continuing desperate attempts to prove how unconcerned she is with the morals of society. Or a peek at just how badly she wants to get her whole audience arrested for pedophilia? Your pick. Sources at the concert say that T-Mom had pasties on under the top she pulled down, but for me that still doesn’t change the fact that she crossed the line. And for the record, we’ve chosen NOT to run the photo evidence. Keep reading »
Party foul, Taylor Momsen. Our favorite thigh-high wearing, sex tape-loving actress/rock star was photographed on the set of “Gossip Girl” smoking a cigarette in one hand and waving to paparazzi while holding a pack of Marlboro Lights in the other. Who sold her smokes? Tsk-tsk, she’s not of age. It’s just a matter of time until we get Lindsay Lohan-esque exploits from this one. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
