Taylor Momsen: Courtney Love is Awesome

Taylor Momsen: Courtney Love is Awesome

Taylor Momsen is cornered in this new shot for Interview magazine.

Here’s what the 17-year-old Pretty Reckless singer and actress had to share:

On whether she minds being labeled the Junior Courtney Love: “No, because she’s awesome. She just isn’t one of my idols or direct influences, despite what people think. The public decided that for themselves, but I’m not going to complain, because she is great.”

On her makeup tricks: “I have a bounty of products. Bedhead’s black eyeliner is really good—it lasts a long time—but the only thing is you can’t smear it, so I have smudge black eyeshadow around it. Also, lately I have been using red eye makeup!”

FYI: Taylor recently clarified remarks she made to Spin about rock. “It’s a misquote,” she told T4. “I was arguing the difference between rock vs. pop…I wasn’t insulting Rihanna!”

Also pictured inside is Taylor leaving BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge in London on Monday (August 23).

Awesome Courtney is Love.

# 3

This girl tries way too hard, poor thing:(

# 4

She’s a phony.

# 5

Yet another pretty girl who thinks she has to look like a ***** for people to pay attention to her.
Does she at least have talent to make up for it?

# 6

She doesn’t mind the Courtney Love comparisons? Well, there’s the beginning of the problem.

Also, why would anyone want to know how to do raccoon make up? It would make sense if it was Halloween…

She needs a new PR. ASAP.

I’m sure Courtney Love can now die happy knowing that Taylor Momsen has given her nod of approval.

She’s so pathetic. She’ll do anything for attention and she’s certainly getting it.

Fame has attacked once again(sigh). Just say no………

Fame has attacked once again (sigh)…..Just say no………

why do all these female singers need gimmicks ie.taylor, gaga why not let your talent speak for itself

Can you please stop reporting on Taylor? She is a waste of a space, loser and isn’t even popular. Why are you even writing about her?

Critics in the present are always tough. Momsen isn’t really doing anything more scandalous than what The Runaways did during their time – in fact, as trailblazers, their actions were even more scandalous considering the time. Yeah, Momsen can come across posery but don’t alot of teens? There are a hell of a lot of normal teenagers out there who aren’t crazy ***** – hell I’m just emerging from teendom and I’m probably one of the tamest people I know. However, there are also alot of crazy teens who dress and act provocatively – ‘All the world’s a stage’ so to speak. it’s just that Momsen’s one is alot more public.

love her ! and her music…………cant wait til Friday when the album drops here :)

i love her, and the band, but is strange,, she’s my age! And I can’t imagine myself acting like she is! She grew up so fast, but i still loving her :D


she is absolutely gorgeous, why does she have to dress like this? such a shame for a 17 year old

Hmm…is she a panda or a human? I can’t tell.

she is gorgeous? look at her arms…that girl is not healthy

Well, I was quite surprised to hear how well this girl can actually sing. Even if it isn’t your style of music, she can sing in tune and can sing live.

Also, I’d love to see the fashion sense of people who post comments picking on other peoples’ looks.

What’s the matter with people having fun with what they wear? Boring clothes = boring life.

Her voice is incredible. She needs to shut up and sing.

Is she part raccoon?

taylor thinks better than some people in here n shes probably much younger than them courtney love used to be a great musician n its perfectly normal 4 a kid interested in rock n roll to admire her u just have to learn how to tell work n talent with personal life apart its awesome that she admires real musicians like her n kurt cobain rather than prepubescent posers that have taken over the music industry nowadays with crappy songs n image n the fact she wants to be different from them no matter the criticism from puritanical suckers is great btw what she said in spin is the thing that every rocker would say the word rock star is now used 4 every singer i have heard people calling beiber a rockstar 4 gods sake

I find her extremely annoying cause she’s trying way too hard but I have to admit she looks beautiful in this pic.
