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.

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.

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 »
