Taylor Momsen Trashes Rihanna's Pop-Star Style

For Taylor Momsen, art imitates life. Just as her Gossip Girl character, Jenny Humphrey, takes pleasure in shaking things up on Manhattan’s prim-and-proper Upper East Side, so too does the actress seem to enjoy pushing the boundaries in real life. In a recent interview with Spin magazine, Momsen classified her personal style as “high-class hooker” and frowned upon anyone opposed to her black eyes and leggy looks. “I dress for myself,” she told Spin. “Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I’m 16, then that person’s a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter.” But the Material Girl muse and lead singer of rock band, the Pretty Reckless, is irritated—to say the least—that pop stars are passing as rock stars these days. “People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna‘s wearing f– leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.” For Taylor’s full interview, check out Spin.com. Tell Us: What do you think about Taylor Momsen blasting a fellow fashionista?

ok she obviously has very low self-esteem if she is saying that the only way to make herself feel good is to dress like a hooker. And if she just said that people shouldnt judge her for the way she dresses, why is she so quick to judge the way someone else (rihanna) dresses? and leather jackets are not just for “rock stars”…she just made herself sound really arrogant and conceited.

Note to Taylor: Wearing leather dosen’t make you a rock star. Making great rock music makes you a rock star. Unfortunately you don’t do that. Rihanna made better rock music on her last album then you do. By the way, everyone wears leather today.

I wear leather jackets……

I’ve got news for you little girl, you’re no “rock star” either. Steven Tyler, Sting, Bono, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, etc. THEY are rock stars! She’s just a wanna be poser!

What an idiot, what a complete idiot; age in this instance is not an exuse.

Damn. I guess since I work in the legal department in the midwest, I need to throw my leather jacket away. Thanks for the tip Taylor, I had no idea.

“Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I’m 16, then that person’s a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter.”
Well, there’s some logic for you…

What does leather jackets have to do with rock music? Everyone wears them nowadays.
