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?

If looking like a crazed raccoon is what gets her through the day well then good for her. I’m not a fan of Rihanna but it seems as if lil Taylor thinks critizing Rihana is going to get people to notice her. That fact is she is only 16. 16 and dumb!

Obviously Momsen is an authentic rock star who has the right to wear a leather jacket.

what a waste of a pretty face.

wow because clearly people who aren’t rockstars can’t wear leather jackets, she is whatever the opposite of epitome is of classy

Shakera on

wow she’s an idiot. I didn’t realize leather jackets were reserved for certain ppl. Rihanna has style and has incorporated leather into it… I think Taylor just wanted attention.

Her parents must be so proud…

I don’t know if anyone who classifies their look as “high class hooker” has the right to criticize other people’s clothing choices…just saying.

Allie on

I wouldn’t say she looks “high class” but I do agree with her that she looks like a hooker. I mean, when you see this little racoon eyed girl in stripper heals, ripped tights and a t-shirt, you start to wonder where her parents are…

tanya on

pop stars can’t wear leather jackets??? this girl is dumb

HilLesha on

Courtney Love called, and she said that she wants her look back.
