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?

So…She doesn’t want people to criticize her attire but she can because? Perhaps Rihanna wears a leather jacket because like the rest of us, she wants to. Leather jackets are not exclusive to dumb little brats who want to look like old used up street walkers. Angry much hater?

If pop stars irritate her for wearing leather…then Iceskaters are irritated at her for wearing sequens in her flannel “rock” look. 16 years old…SHOULDN’T YOU BE IN SCHOOL!!!!!

If Rihanna can’t wear leather jackets because she’s not a real rockstar then can u wear “high class hooker styles” if you’re not a real hooker? or are you? Sorry the lines are getting blurred…
