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?

I was going to say that this isn’t high school and she needs to be reminded that the cliques went away once you enter the real world but then I realized that this is why people criticize her about being 16, because she still lives up to it. Want to be treated like an adult? Start acting like one and quit whining to anyone who will listen just to get attention. It’s not our fault your band is garbage and you can’t seem to stay in the limelight.

She could be Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson’s love child!…

“I dress for myself,” she told Spin. “Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good”….Umm can we say self-esteem issues?!


I didn’t even know who she was and still don’t. She is just immature…

WOW. I guess only Rock Stars can wear leather jackets …. news flash to me

JJ on

haha!! I like the “crazed racoon” remark! I think Rhiana is NO rockstar but she dresses for herself as well…not what anyone else wants and to quote Ms Momsen your, “a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter” how she dresses. Have a great day!

Shan on

So she criticizes Rihanna for wearing a leather jacket, but when people judge her for the way she dresses, they’re scumbags? Hypocritical much?
