Taylor Momsen Admits: "I Don't Brush My Hair"

07/22/2010 at 01:30 PM ET

Vodpod videos no longer available.

From her severe black-rimmed eyes to her shiny red lips and perfect bed head, Taylor Momsen’s tough girl look is as much a staple off-screen as it is on. But how long does it take the young Gossip Girl star to achieve rock star perfection? Not long. “I shower, then I put a ton of black on my eyes, then I put lipstick on and a little bit of blush and then, I don’t brush my hair,” Taylor Momsen jokes in a video for MTV.com. In fact, even though Momsen’s heavy makeup looks extremely calculated, the starlet reveals that it’s actually a lot easier than it seems. “[I use] whatever black eyeshadow and liner–that isn’t empty– in my makeup case and charcoal it on,” says Momsen. Check out MTV.com to hear Taylor dish on her beauty regime, style and why she fired her stylist. —Andrea DeSimone

Definitely don’t like the rockstar look. On Gossip Girl.. her style & make up was at its BEST.

Annnette on

Wow. Her parents must be VERY proud.

Jana on

She is so annoying! She thinks she’s an amazing alternative artist when she’s really a crudballs actor with five pounds of makeup on! We know you’re not Miley, Taylor. Miley is genuine and has more talent!

Betty Finn on

And this is why she looks so ridiculous.

JessicaH on

So I don’t know much about her, she could be actually quite lovely. But she puts off this manufactured attitude that I just don’t get why?!?! I look at her and I go, “Huh?!”.

Sadie on

She is another young teen desperately trying to be a woman.
The make up and clothing does nothing for her, other than making her look like a prostituting raccoon!
As for Gossip Girl, so happy she wont be back. Hopefully her “singing” is better than her acting, lol yeah right.

Selina on

She looks like a racoon. I can’t bash her too badly because I’m not really sure who she is but it seems she is trying a little too hard. Geezus hun, let your eyes breath!!

Bea on

does she even have parents? She is really weird I just don’t get it.

Sandra on

OMG! That makeup has to go! She looks horrible! I always remembered her in “The Grinch” movie and she was so cute and pretty. I look at her now and cannot believe that is the same girl. Is she trying to prove something by wearing that horrible black makeup? Not good at all!

Sam on

Can Gossip Girl do us all a favor and NOT bring her back?

sally on

“beauty” regime?

Larissa on

She looks like a racoon with red lipstick on! Don’t like the look on her, to much black eye shadow.

M on

Her extensions are some of the worst I’ve seen. They’re too long, too stringy and they look horrible on her. Gossip Girl really needs to do a makeunder on this girl this year!

Anna on

Honestly does anyone even care about her? She’s always on the news. Her makeup looks ridiculous and has to go. She needs to go back to being the sweet little J in Gossip Girl not some hard rocker chick that is trying to get attention.

Samantha on

This girl is so lost and needs some guidance.

Donna on

Yea, and Jessica Simpson doesnt brush her teeth. Whats next, Demi Lovato doesnt use deoderant and Lindsay Lohan doesnt wipe her butt?

Sadie on

@ Anna – She stopped being sweet little J on Gossip Girl a long time ago. Didn’t you watch last season??
And she will not be back on the show come September which is great!

All she is is a wannabe, who dresses badly, can’t act and can’t sing either.

She needs to go home and learn to be normal before she ends up like Lindsay Lohan.

Sadie on

@ Sam – She will not be on Gossip Girl come September. Let’s hope they keep it that way.

sip on

she looks like a clown.

Amber on

Yuck. Bad hair, bad clothes, no personality & ridiculous make-up.

An on

I am ecstatic she won’t be back for Gossip Girl! She was seriously getting on my nerves. She acts like the whole world revolves around her!!

Kay on

OY! Seriously?!? Not cute. Shouldn’t this go in that section “When Stylists Have a Day Off”?

Amy on

Does she have a father? Mine would never let me run around looking like that… I bet she’d look quite pretty if she ditched all the makeup and took better care of her appearance.

Kit on

She obviously never washes her face either.

Deeneld on

What a piece of total GARBAGE!

Sydney on

I think she going for the “Joker” look. All i hear when I look at her is “Why so serious?”

nej on

She looks like a little courtney love trainwreck, and she’s such a pretty girl! hopefully it’s only a phase, because she looks like a hot mess.

cmw on

If you don’t brush it, then you don’t wash it!!! and from the looks of her face she doesn’t wash that either!!!

becky on

Does she realize she looks like Courtney Love?

Arglebargle on

Oh, damn…I sprayed juice all over my monitor!

Maybe Mike Rowe could have an episode where he cleaned her up!

I kept expecting green pea soup to come flying out of her mouth and her head to spin around.

khyn on

this is trifling and all i can say is what a shame

Taylor Momsen does not brush hair? fast make-up? mmm « Teen Creations on

KG on

She looks completely ridiculous.

BobaFett on

I wake up looking almost like that after a bar night… mascara and eyeliner after not washing it before going to bed = racoon eyes, hair style = hair hasn’t seen a comb ever, lipstick = on my teeth, blush = hang-over making cheeks red

such an accomplishment taylor!

yaaah, and tell us something we didn't know... on

and she looks sooo natural…. LOL

Louise on

Taylor is a really sweet girl. So what if she looks rebellious or acts rebellious. Not everyone can be a pure virgin role model. Not everyone wants the world to be full of pure virgin role models either. American can be so prim. Live and let live I say. Celebrate diversity and stop judging everyone who is different from you. Congratulations on your mega stardom Taylor. Seems a few people are jealous!

Sherri on

So I used to like her on Gossip Girl in the beginning…now her character totally annoys me.The look is horrible.Stop trying to look older than you are.

Rina on

Well… it explains A LOT

Jon on

I liked The VIDEO, sorry her stylist got fired by her, though!

Cassie on

omg, i don’t brush my hair either! & i LOVE her eye makeup!

maria on

She is trying to a feminine version of Alice Cooper. At least Alice Cooper could sing. Pathetic gal, tacky make up and she thinks that is hot.
The only teen singer that could put good song out was Britney Spears. The others have no talent whatsoever.

emily on

i think she’s lying about the shower part… it looks like she rolled out of bed then slapped a pound charcoal on her eyes.

Britini95 on

I’m pretty sure she was joking. Because sometimes she wears her hair/extension wavy and sometimes bone straight. Can’t take a joke. Oh and to Jana, if you heard Taylor sing live, you would know she is a MUCH better vocalist than Miley. But your probably like every other physco “Miley fan”, so bias you won’t let your ears tell you the truth!:)

sophie on

How sad no need for her to be so rude so miley Cyrus taylor get a hold of your self ur not an adult if she isnt one!!! she is the same age as you and youre the saddo not proving that!!!

dgrin on

those hair curls need 3-40 minutes the least to be achieved

Callie Lewis on

I think she’s probably just feeling insecure and confused… and by having a go at her, you’re almost certainly just fuelling her need to prove she doesn’t care about it. From what I know she graduated high school and moved out early, so she’s probably been living an “adult life” for a while. Yes, she might have overdone the make up a little in that interview, but who are we to judge? She might not want to look pretty by other peoples’ standards.

Sammie on

I love Taylor cant wait for The Pretty Reckless album light me up to come out you would think someone is forcing yall to watch this the way yall are badgering her….haters

Gary Lester on

I dont brush my hair. People love my hair. Brushing is not natural. There is no such thing as healthy hair. Hair is dead waste. People who spend time and energy trying to make their hair look a certain way are insane because there is no real reason for it. just vanity

ymnera on

Well, highfive for not brushing her hair, i guess, im just lazy, wonder whats her reason

Golden Franck on

WOOW i love this dark side of her. she has a great voice and that personality… and those pogphoraths are truly amazing. Ah.. and i agree with you the glasses are unique. i want them!

liz faust on

you guys are seriously messed up. do you /not/ understand yet, in our time and place right now, THAT PEOPLE DRESS THE WAY THEY WANT TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES? Would you be happy if everyone looked the same? People like Taylor Momsen dont CARE, they just dont want to look the same. all of you, following your beauty magazines, starving yourselves, judging eachother on the way you dress, not how you act, do you not understand how ignorant and hateful this is? sheesh. youre all so closed minded it makes me sick
