Taylor Momsen Discusses Nudity, Masturbating

by at . Comments

Love her or hate her, Taylor Momsen probably doesn't care. Nor does she care about censoring herself, even if the taboo subject is her own masturbation habits.

In a revealing new interview with The Guardian (UK), Taylor said unabashedly that “I’m a promoter of masturbation. Don’t sleep around ... learn yourself first!"

"Guys do it, but girls don’t. They should. That’s why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good."

OUTSPOKEN RACCOON: Jenny Taylor does not hold back!

"You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance," she adds.

"I don’t think sex is something people should be afraid of. It’s part of human nature. I don’t think it should be so shameful, particularly for girls and young girls.”

What do you think? She may regret all these comments one day, and might want to learn some restraint, but could it be that she doesn't make a terrible point?

Maybe if more young people held out instead of putting out, they'd be better off in the long term. Imagine if Jenny never gave it up to Chuck! We rest our case.

As for why she seems to get naked all the time?

"If you're in high school, or college, or work, someone's not going to like you. It's inevitable," she says. "It doesn't mean anything. People say, 'Do you care what people say?' I'm like, 'My goddamn tampon's on the Internet – do you think I care about anything?'"

She's referring to a photo taken of her on stage  that ended up online. "It's f**king douchey," she says. "I saw him as well. My dress isn't that short – it's not like you can see my fucking vagina – and the guy gets down on his knees and shoots up my skirt."

"Would I want a picture of my tampon string on the Internet? Nnnnnnnyo. I'd probably say no if I had an option. But, y'know, what you gonna do? It's there."

Does she take pleasure in being shocking? Even a little?

She says no, and insists the recent topless concert photos of her only happen "Because it's in the video! It's an imitation. Doesn't everyone do that? Recreate their video on stage? I'm serious! And I didn't flash my boobs. I had tape on them."

"It was a spontaneous thing – there was some tape in the dressing room, and I'd been wanting to do that for a while, so I just did it."

The video in question, for The Pretty Reckless' "Make Me Wanna Die," features Momsen stripping in a graveyard as she walks towards the camera.

"It was held up in legal for a long time because I was 16 when we shot that," she says. "We couldn't release it because, yes, I actually got naked."

"It's such a complex song – and the video really reflects the song, in the way that I'd die for this person. And the point is: if you don't do something that's making you happy, you're just working through possessions and shit; you're dying with nothing anyway."

"So I'm stripping off my worldly possessions and giving them away. And then there's hell raining down, just cause it looks cool."

There you have it. Love her? Hate her? Either way, tell us!

Just want to to say in response to accusations of T Mom being "a silly girl stripping on stage, only pretending to be really deep and profound"--friend, it takes BRAINS and THINKS to do that. You try coming up with a phrase like 'sexual relevance' on the fly. God, if neither acting nor music work out for, she could go into feminist social anthro. Simone de Beauvoir would be proud.

LOVE LOVE LOVE The Pretty Reckless and Taylor Momsen. She's not afraid to be who she really is, even if everyone hates her for it. You gotta admit, this girl has serious balls to do that! Everyone is having a moan about the way she dresses... but have you looked at the big stars like Cheryl Cole and Lady GaGa? They wear practically nothing, but apparently that's fine. If she feels comfortable in it, then leave her to it I say. I wish I looked that good in a corset dress.

well the masturbation thing,was too much information.
but her arguments with which she reasoned the stripping in the 2nd "Make me wanna die"-video ("It's such a complex song – and the video really reflects the song, in the way that I'd die for this person. And the point is: if you don't do something that's making you happy, you're just working through possessions and shit; you're dying with nothing anyway.") were pretty profound for a 17-years-old.I'm not a fan of her,but she has potential.So Taylor,
quit acting,because your music is much better than your tv-perfomances.maybe it's not her fault,but lil j is really annoying.if she would buy eye remover and a little more cloth,I'd go to a concert of the pretty reckless.and in comparison with all the "acting and singing"-popstars,she's really good.

ah, she is cool. A girl like her talking about masturbation and knowing her own body - thats good! Not shocking, in my opinion. The rest... well its provokation, but okay she wnats to be a Rock Star and sells it a bit

I do like Taylor Momsen's boldness...don't get me wrong, but I feel like she's trying to hard to act mature and give off the "I don't care what you think of me vibe." She's trying so hard that she appears skanky and trashy while she's doing it. I feel bad for her really, she's been forced to grow up too fast and now she's making videos of herself naked. It's too much. She's 17.....

Well to be quite honest i love her it's about time there was a celebrity who spoke the truth for once.

You go Taylor! Finally there's a celebrity that speaks the truth instead of following society's fictitious regime ;)

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

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
