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?

She definitely needs to stop talking – she is making herself look ridiculous every time she opens her mouth.

Elda on

VD on

Wow, they have been wearing leather before she was born!!!!!!!!

Apparently sequined hunting flannel is very “rock star”- she is an immature little girl who is too much like her character on GG and just wants attention (I do love that show-lol)

Lyndsey on

She’s really just trying too hard, which is not unexpected from a 16 year old, no matter their lifestyle. I say give her a few years and she’ll calm down and grow up a bit.

tillie on

Chris on

She’s ROCK? Then I gotta roll! Heart was rock, Joan Jett ,Pat Benatar,Janis Joplin,Melissa Etheridge,Lita Ford,Grace Slick,4 Non Blondes to name a few NOW THEY ARE ROCK. Hang your leather jacket up kiddo and come back when you ROCK.

Lo on

Wow! Who remembers her in the first couple of seasons off Gossip Girl? What a waste of a pretty face:/

And I didn’t know only rock stars could wear leather jackets…I don’t think you’re allowed to wear them honey, sorry :/

Betty Finn on

Hooker, yes. High class, no. Someday Taylor, you’ll look back the way you look and the things you say – and you’ll be sooo embarrassed. News flash little girl: you’re not that cool.
