Taylor Momsen Trashes Rihanna's Pop-Star Style

For Taylor Momsen, art imitates life. Just as her Gossip Girl character, Jenny Humphrey, takes pleasure in shaking things up on Manhattan’s prim-and-proper Upper East Side, so too does the actress seem to enjoy pushing the boundaries in real life. In a recent interview with Spin magazine, Momsen classified her personal style as “high-class hooker” and frowned upon anyone opposed to her black eyes and leggy looks. “I dress for myself,” she told Spin. “Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I’m 16, then that person’s a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter.” But the Material Girl muse and lead singer of rock band, the Pretty Reckless, is irritated—to say the least—that pop stars are passing as rock stars these days. “People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna‘s wearing f– leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.” For Taylor’s full interview, check out Spin.com. Tell Us: What do you think about Taylor Momsen blasting a fellow fashionista?

A 16 year old wanting to to look like a hooker is really annoying. I love how she thinks she’s such a superior rock star at 16. I”m guessing that the ‘real’ rock stars find this silly kids annoying as well.

Someone really let this girl stray way too from reality – typical teenager. She does such a great job with the eyeliner. Hopefully she will figure out how to read a book on civil rights and by all means manners – clearly she needs to. I have 2 teenagers in my house – neither one of them knows who Taylor Momsen is. Go figure!

Taylor Momsen dresses like a strung out crack addict. She is 16 and has no clue what she’s talking about. You don’t have to be a “rock star” to wear leather. She’s such a poser who likes to pretend she’s hardcore but she’s just as pop as Rihanna minus Rihanna’s popularity and talent.

Please – she got famous for being on a show called Gossip Girl. She couldn’t be less ‘rock’ if she tried.

Wow! Taylor Momsen’s comments are exactly what I’d expect to come out of a 16 year olds mouth! She thinks she knows it all! Someone needs to put that girl in her place and give her an attitude check! I’m getting sick of her bashing everyone around her when I think she needs to take a look in the mirror!

For a bunch of people getting all worked up over a girl dissing someone else’s style, we sure are hypocritical! She’s just a naive little girl. She needs to make mistakes like this to figure the world out. I think she’s just upset that a traditional rocker-look is cool enough to be accepted into fashion for everybody. She’s just not eloquent in her expression.

she really needs to lay off the eye make-up

Wow… had no idea you could only be a rocker in order to wear a leather jacket. So my mom can’t wear a leather jacket because she isn’t rock material according to Taylor Momsen. Interesting. Who cares? Wear what you want, dress how you like. Doesn’t mean you are that specific type of stereotype. It just means you like to wear that. There are tons of different types of people who wear all kinds of stuff. Doesn’t mean that fit that “type” according to this 16 year old who doesn’t have a clue or know anything. Wow… What a tard’!

Wow – her age is quite evident here. Hopefully she’ll grow up soon and see what an utter child she looks and sounds like.

Tiff on
