Sigh. Every time Taylor Momsen comes up, I feel like I’m at an AA meeting. I have a terrible secret to confess, so I might as well just get it out of the way right off the bat: I don’t hate Taylor Momsen.
I know. She’s an obnoxious, ungrateful brat, who doesn’t even look hot in the street-walker clothes she wears on stage, and her transformation into her generation’s Courtney Love is depressing to watch and could devolve into full-blown tragedy. Even so, in a world of goody-good Taylor Swift types, it’s nice to see that’s someone is still running their mouth and acting a fool, the way famous teenagers are supposed to. Sure, it might all be a carefully-constructed stage persona, but still…
Unfortunately, it seems like Taylor’s been pulling back on the crazy lately. In a recent interview she was asked about reports that she’s been fired from her hit show Gossip Girl because of her attitude. Rather than put a cigarette out in her own eye and spit in the reporter’s face like I expected, Taylor calmly addressed the rumor saying, “It’s complete BS. I’m still definitely on the show. Please don’t buy the crap of the magazines.”
She then went on to reveal what a “shy romantic” she is, and discussed her love of making dolls from discarded rags. Seriously. Ugh…just when I thought I found the future mother of my crack babies, Taylor has to go and clean up her act. Nothing for me to do now but sit around and wait for an Amy Winehouse comeback.
