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 so stuck up, she is a Courtney Love wannabe. I was watching this warped tour ’10 documentry and she says her band feels like “outcasts” because they are the ONLY Rock band on tour…….well then would someone like to explain to me what Warped Tour is…..And you know your so Punk Rock when……you Model for the Queen of Pop clothing line..

Hmmm…if memory serves correctly, Michael Jackson who was the king of POP wore leather jackets all the time….or am I wrong? So, since when has it been a fashion faux pas for a pop star to wear leather jackets? Put a little more eyeliner on Taylor, I don’t think it’s thick enough.

agree w Bonobo. nice girl to have a high class hooker look at 16! her role model must be Courtney Love. good luck, Taylor. you’re gonna need it

I have no idea who this chick is, but in a way she is right. These pop princesses are not rock stars. Their music, if you want to call it that, is manufactured BS designed to sell an item, the style of the “singer”. Rihanna is one of those people, who’s “style” is a take on the punk look from the 70s. It is neither original nor provocative. To me its just boring and bland and shows me that she knows how to rip off another generation.

Who is this person, or kid I should say? I’ve never even heard of her.
I’ve heard of Rihanna. Not my kind of music, but if I was this little girl, I might look up what the definition of a rock star is. My guess would be record sales, popularity and ability to sell out rock concerts would be on the list…LOL
I’m definitely not a rock star, but I do own a leather jacket…gasp!

Jess on

hmmm so according to her, no one is allowed to wear leather jackets unless they are “real” rock stars? and everyone who wears one from now on is just a big fake? get a life u silly girl and stop passing judgment on other ppl or their clothing choices when you’re the one raising a big fuss about having the right to wear whatever you want!

Amanda on

So other people are scumbags for commenting on what she wears…so from her own logic then she would be a scumbag too, for commenting on what Rihanna wears. Double-standard much!!

AA on

I don’t like her on gossip girl, and i definitely wouldn’t like her in real life. she shows her age with this article. 16 would be about right!!! i didn’t know you couldn’t wear leather unless you were in a rock band!

Deserae on

I’m sorry who is this little girl? and why is she dress like a crack addict?

Dawn on

What happened to sweet little Cindy Lou Who?
