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’s immature, rude, and probably craving attention.

Ummm, where’s her mother???? She shouldn’t be letting her wear that or none the less let her daughter think of herself or the way she dresses like “a high class hooker.” Sad, this girl is extremely naive, and doesn’t deserve her fame. I see a future celebrity rehab contestant….

My God she sounds bitter and a hater, Taylor is pretty and talented, but I think that bashing on Rhianna and also Miley, shows that she wishes to be in their shoes. I think that she would rather be a successful teenage on top of the world singer than a teenage actress who is in a successful series. She should stop hating.

I wish my parents would let me be a ‘HIGh CLASS HOOKER’ when I was 16.

Anna on

She has got nothing on Rhianna.

Cath on

Maybe Taylor should be critical of the pop star style when she is actually close to being one….

amanda on

i think she is right. U guys thing taylor is country when shes not she pop country. shes more pop then country and rihanna is not rock she like R&B and Pop

Kate on

She’s a wannabe 16 year old who is talking with the maturity of a 16 year old. Pay her no mind – she’ll change her tune when she’s tired of this look!!

So “rock” stars are the only ones allowed to wear leather jackets? I guess you learn something new everyday. Are rock stars supposed to do Macy’s ads as well? I know minors in the entertainment world mature at lightning speed, but this kid is ridiculous.

Since she is 16 I’m not going to be mean. She will however one day grow up and realize that she was an idiot when she was 16. But she has caught on that if she talks about another celeb then she will get attention. High-class hooker at 16, perhaps magazines and news shouldn’t take the time to cover her.
