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?

the only scumbags are going to be the dirty men that are going to be asking you how much you charge!and haven’t you ever hear the phrase “pop rock”?!

High class hooker, huh? She’s 16 alright… I love that she barks at people who don’t like her style, yet tries to bag on others for wearing a leather jacket. Oh to be 16 again – young and dumb.

This girl is probably the dumbest celeb out there today….

Gosh, she sure does have a pitiful attitude!

Weren’t leather jackets originally for protection during war and when riding? Wouldn’t that make anyone who’s ever worn them a poser? A jacket is a jacket. You find one that makes you feel good, and move on with your life. 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.” It DOES matter. As a CHILD, its inappropriate to dress as a “high class hooker”.

High class hooker? More like lowest of the low class…sweetie, you have no talent. If you want attention so bad, why don’t you go work in some strip club. I’m sure plenty of pervy old men will be more than happy to pay attention to you.

Jenn on

What happened to that sweet little girl from the Grinch who Stole Christmas? “High class hooker” isn’t something to be proud of….

Man, this article got me worked up! I didn’t know you had to be a rocker to wear a leather jacket! Taylor needs to open her mouth and insert her foot!

It is a shame that someone as young as her feels like she has to dress that way to make her self feel good. She has a lot of talent and it seems she’s very unhappy with herself.
May God help her
