Taylor Momsen: Legally an Adult at 17?

at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen has been known to flash her nearly bare breasts in concert, smoke, wear little more than underwear, make provocative statements and so on.

That's not a commentary, it's just the truth. People love her or hate her, it seems. Either way, she's her own girl/woman, a fact that's legally true, per N.Y. State law.

In the same interview in which she apologized to her folks for previous comments she made about her attitude, she says that despite being 17 (until July), she’s a legal adult.

Asked if her parents are required to go on tour with her because of her young age, Momsen replied, "No, I’m a legal adult. Whatever that means." We don't really get it either, T.

"I graduated high school two years early, so I’m responsible for myself under some weird New York law." We just passed this along because it's interesting. We have no point.

You are right, that is interesting. I wonder how that law applies, and where it applies. If it's just in New York, I guess it's another reason to love that city. :)

Gossip Girl Quotes

Serena: It doesn't make sense!
Blair: Feelings never do. They get you all confused. Then they drive you around for hours before they drop you right back where you started.

We make our own fortunes, and call them fate. And what better excuse to choose a path than to insist it's our destiny? But at the end of the day, we all have to live with our choices ... no matter who's looking over our shoulder.
