I’ve talked before about Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen and how I believe that she’s headed for disaster. She’s 16 and way too young to be working the clubs. I can’t help it — it’s the mother in me. I want to wrap her in a blanket and enroll her in some college classes. Also, because of her age, I tread carefully. She’s still just a kid even if she, her mother and her entire management team don’t remember that.
An E! reporter asked her about her fashion choices backstage at the G-Star Raw show this week:
“I don’t care. I think if everyone’s going to be so upset about what I’m wearing, I’m like, ‘well, maybe you should look at your life a little more. I don’t know why you’re so obsessed with mine.’ Music inspires me. Fashion means everything. I mean, it’s art. Art means everything to me, so fashion’s another side of it. It’s expression, it’s music, it’s a way of showing and really being who you are in your own way that no one can take away from you.”
Garter belts and thigh highs on a 16 year old doesn’t feel like art to me; it feels criminal.
