Taylor Momsen is so hardcore that she actually stripped her 16-year old ass naked for her band’s latest music video. Only problem? It’s illegal for a person her age to be THAT hardcore.
Here’s what Taylor had to say about the video and why it wasn’t released as-is:
“It was held up in legal for a long time because I was 16 when we shot that. 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.”
Oh wow. Nakedness to imply nothingness. What a deep-ass concept, Taylor. *longest sigh imaginable*
In the legal version, Taylor compromised and wore some lingerie, but part of me can’t even believe the other version exists. I mean, who sat there and filmed a 16-year old girl writhing about with a microphone in her hand? Why was this allowed in the first place?
