Oh Taylor Momsen. If there’s one thing about you that’s always constant, it’s you. Just, you know. You. The way you are. The things you say, the clothes you wear, the very image you project. Though I know I should be rolling my eyes hard, I’m kind of thanking my lucky stars, because you know that saying, “Things could always be worse”? I think it was written about you. I do. Or at least Courtney Love (I KNOW; you must be so stoked that I made that correlation there. You’re welcome), and then applied to young women like you who teeter just on the edge of impropriety and desperation. Yes, I guess that’s the word: “desperation.” It sums you up pretty well, girl.
Taylor Momsen on wanting to look like a stripper:
“I love stripper shoes and I always try to find the tallest ones. I’m always surprised no one talks about my shoes. I’m, like, on stage in 15-inch heels but people talk more about my eye make-up, which has stayed the same forever.”
On her love of being tall:
“I’m 5ft 8in. So I’m really tall. I got into heels when I was little, though. My mom’s really short so she always wears really tall heels and I used to steal them and now it’s just a part of my everyday life.”
“I don’t like guys who overdress. And I don’t like guys who try too hard. My biggest thing is be yourself. Be yourself and if people don’t like you, then they can suck a d**k. I don’t like people who pretend to be something to fit into a certain crowd or guys who pay more attention to how they look than you do – that’s not a good thing.”
On selling out to the UK:
“Most of my favorite bands are from England. You guys have the best bands. The Beatles, Zeppelin, The Who, you have frickin’ all of them! America loses there.”
On selling out to the UK. Again:
“Every now and again I want to go to the beach and be in the sun, but that’s a very rare feeling, so I could live in London, definitely. I like the rain. I like the gloom, and everyone’s got such an attitude, be it a good or a bad one.”
So, there’s a little more insight on who Taylor Momsen really is. I guess the only question I have for girlfriend would be “Do you still f-ck for Satan?” because that’s definitely something we need to know, now that you’re eighteen and all.
