Taylor Momsen wants to ‘reinvent’ rock-n-roll

HollywoodNews.com: Jenny Humphrey has far greater ambitions than upstaging Blair Waldorf as Queen B these days–but then again, 16-year-old Taylor Momsen hasn’t just been Little J for quite some time now. The “Gossip Girl” actress has been touring on Warped Tour with her rock band, The Pretty Reckless (whose first album officially releases on August 31), and her just-released music video for “Miss Nothing” has people talking, to say the least.

Momsen says of the video, in which she gyrates on a lavishly set table wearing not much more than stockings and stilettos, “The song is telling an ambiguous story about a lover dying, and I’m depicting Mary Magdalene, and Jesus just died. It’s about not being able to live without a lover. It’s Mary Magdalene’s last supper, it’s my last supper, because I can’t live.” Indeed.

The Pretty Reckless frontwoman, who cites Led Zeppelin and the Beatles as major influences, aspires to be like ‘the greats,’ saying she is “trying to reinvent and bring back rock ‘n’ roll,” and criticism of her sexualized self-presentation only serves to exasperate Momsen. “It’s like we’re living in the ’60s again. Haven’t we already all seen this? This has already happened. Scantily clad clothing? It’s amazing that it’s shocking again, scaring people now, again.”

    It’s because you’re UNDERAGE. Sheesh. Any further and it could probably be called child porn.

    I think this girl is real.She doesn’t hold anything back or try to bullshit her words, which you don’t find a lot of celebrities being upfront.She’s not a teen idol or a role model and that’s not what she wants to be, so people who are hating on her style are just being a bunch of old dumbfucks need to just worry about the oil spill and fix that. Yeah she’s sixteen and she does and says some controversial things, but she’s not sending out naked internet photos or making sextapes or flashing her genitals like some of these Disney stars who are role models and are expected by parents to set good examples for their children.That is not Taylor’s job and she is a great actor and musician and she will go very far in with her career.
