Taylor Momsen: I'm Not a Whore For Masturbating!

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen does not censor herself.

In her quest for rock stardom, the 17-year-old certainly looks and acts the part, with racy outfits and controversial quotes surfacing as often as The Pretty Reckless' music.

What did the band's frontwoman say to make headlines this time?

A New Zealand radio station recently landed a Taylor Momsen interview in which she discussed The Pretty Reckless' song, "Going Down," about the Catholic church.

Why did they pen a song about that in particular? "I was raised Catholic. I f*%ked a priest once. Just kidding," she said. "It seemed like a fitting song to write at the time ... It was kind of a f*%k you to all the molestation going on. It was just insane."

Hard Rocker

Taylor Momsen could not care less what people think.

She went on to bash people for posting photos of her online, but also defended Perez Hilton and other bloggers for just doing their job: "I don't take [stories about me] to heart; I just look at it this way: My f*%king tampon's on the goddamn Internet."

Regarding her so-called best friend, she said: "[My vibrator] doesn't talk back to me so it's really not a best friend... I think women should equally be allowed to pleasure themselves as much as men. I think that if that has any more controversy than a man talking about pleasuring himself, then there's something wrong with the world. I just think men and women should be treated equally. I'm not a whore for masturbating, so, like, f*%k you if you want to call me one."

On the subject of teen heart throb Justin Bieber, Taylor said: "I don't know who Justin Bieber is. I only know his name because it keeps being brought up to me ... I listen to Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, so I have no idea who he is. That's not a dis; I just don't know."

Well, there you go. What do you think of Taylor? Is she a cool girl just speaking her mind, or a bad role model in need of a serious attitude adjustment?

Eh Momsen is a poser who says anything she considers 'controversial'. She truly is no different than a preteen posting racy pictures or stupid "random" comments for attention. She is just a typical teen and clearly has neither the maturity nor intellect to contribute anything meaningful to the world. Maybe in another ten years. Sadly that is not likely however considering her child star status. It is likely now that she will remain an immature attention speaker because everything has been handed to her and articles like this will no doubt make her think that being edgy is the same as having ideals. I feel sorry for the drug problem this girl is going to have in the future. The truth is she is just like any other adolescent; immature, shallow and attention seeking. I would however still bang her.

I think she's a god damn poser. If she really is so cool and bad-ass then she needn't say anything to prove it. She said she didn't know who Beaver was then went on to say she listens to Zep and the Beatles. Why'd she need to say that last part? To sound cool? Cool people don't need to try so hard to be cool like does she really need to wear racoon make-up and the stripper clothes?(Look at Tom Morello from RATM, he looks lame but when he plays he's awesome.)
The worst part is despite all of her shit I still love her soooo much!! Fuck my tastes in music and women.. ]:I

Taylor Momsen- your a typical teenager, so full of angst, I will admit, her music has potential, however, when she had said she masturbates, she was only seventeen, I have nothing against masturbation, its not my thing, but if its yours, don't publish it to the world when your seventeen, I have no idea why she is dressing the way she is,but, there is a way to look "gothy" without looking "slutty", believe me, I would know, she's already famous worldwide, she already gets loads of attention, and she likes it whether its good or bad, but she's never satisfied with what she's got, too much attention is an awful thing, and, who cares if your tampon is on the internet, the only reason its there is cause your selling every single ounce of yourself to the public, Taylor Momsen, you are both an actress and singer, famous to everyone, stop craving attention before you lose everything.

I never watched Gossip Girl. By the looks of it, it's a terrible show about retarded drama. But Taylor is a great musician and lyricist. That's what I love her for. As for being a whore-- honestly she is right. Why shouldn't women masturbate? It's a helluva lot better than having a teenage pregnancy!!

lol whatever taylor. flash your crotch to all the unsuspecting public you want, be as outspoken and uncensored as you want. STILL can't make me forget you from your first season in gossip girl as the pre-skunk eye make up jenny humphrey, that caaayooootieeee on the grinch and whatever that dog movie was or even the fact that you auditioned for hannah montana (something which your oh so cool self tries to live down now). no one's taking you seriously, at least i'm sure as hell not. i remember around season 3 was when this "new look, new attitude" randomly came about. so i can't realistically think you had some bottled up rage that finally just unleashed itself. therefore i'm going to treat this like what it really is: a teenage brat going through some prolonged temper tantrum that majority of the public is humoring until you grow up and face some of the crude comments you made during this "phase". no one's questioning your right to freedom of speech, say whatever the hell you want. but if you want to talk about masturbating because you're so FREAKIN cool and say whatever you want and don't care, your basically also giving away the right to your own privacy and peace of mind so is it a wonder why your "goddamn tampon is on the internet"? in summary, you're not hardcore, you're a child. please just mature a little and then maybe i can pay the drivel coming out of your mouth some attention.

I love a good fuck the world attitude but come on. when you look at how she is now and how she used to be its like where the fuck did this girl come from?! what hard times has she been through really to be such a bad ass now?! a lot of what she says doesnt seem genuine it just seems intended for shock value. you can have a positive attitude and still say fuck the world. Yes, she can sing, good on her for that but she looks like a zombie hooker in the process. and enough of this "i dont care what people think" attitude. she cares more than anyone else cuz she has gone to considerable lengths to make everyone think otherwise. it all seems very hollow to me and at the rate she's headed she will crash and hard. it happened to lindsey, it happened to demi, and it will happen to her. what a shame that will be cuz she actually HAS talent, but talent doesnt make you impervious to the world and its influences.

It amuses me that people who dislike her character on the TV show dislike her as an actress, I think we should be able to differentiate from someone she portrays onscreen and her as an individual. Also, Dan Savage gave her a shout out. Need I say more? Masturbation FTW.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
