Taylor Momsen, formerly known as Jenny Humphrey, even more formerly known as Cindy Lou Who, is not taking Britney Spears’ national order to “work bitch” very seriously, it seems, because her latest underwear photos for the November 2013 issue of Maxim are very low energy. More
With the Gossip Girl series finale airing on December 10th, it’s no surprise that the cast had their wrap party this weekend. But it’s bittersweet to see Blake Lively post photos of Chace Crawford covered in cake and realize that we have to actually say goodbye in just a few weeks. More
The final season of Gossip Girl begins tonight, and you know what that means: time for the cast to get their ducks in a row so they do not look back on this millennial melodrama about wealthy teenagers as the high point of their careers. But like the spawn of the majestic sea turtle, not all of these bushy-tailed babes can survive into adulthood to become Serious Actors. Who will reach the warm narrows of the silver screen, and who will founder on the rocky shoals of made-for-TV movies? Let’s discuss. (I’ve arranged them from “most likely to succeed” to “outlook not good.”) More
In celebration of the end of her “Black Star” tour, Avril Lavigne has dropped a music video with the stated double purpose of thanking her fans and soliciting donations to her foundation that helps sick and disabled children. And what better way to accomplish all that than by putting on a ridiculous blonde wig and rolling around in fetish underwear? More
Taylor Momsen, every eyeliner ever manufactured and her band The Pretty Reckless just debuted their latest song “You” and I actually really like it. More
The Halloween episode—a mainstay in many TV shows, a way to settle into the fall season but still serve up some pretty wacky plotlines. And because you’ve got a professional wardrobe department, the costumes are always ten times better than what you could have picked out at Halloween Adventure. (Unless the joke is that they’re shitty, in which case it’s hilarious.) We’ve got the best costumes from Gossip Girl, The OC, How I Met Your Mother, and others. More
Today, while browsing through photos of Gossip Girl castoff/The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen, we had a revelation. With her long, straight hair, black eyeliner and torn-up leather, Taylor’s turning into Nicholas Cage‘s musician/designer/giant son Weston. More
Taylor Momsen likes to take some of her clothes off and give an angsty teen version of sex eyes. We know this much is true. And now that she’s 18, photographers can feel comfortable snapping away with abandon because hey, it’s totally not creepy anymore.
Momsen’s latest photoshoot is for Rolling Stone Spain, and accompanies an article that no doubt talks about The Pretty Reckless like it’s a real band and not a scheme of Little Jenny Humphry‘s that got out of control. The thing is, it kind of is a real band now, for all intents and purposes. They are opening for Evanescence on their fall tour, guaranteeing more generic, post-grunge, late-nineties arena rock than you can shake a Hot Topic platform boot at. It’s simultaneously comforting and disturbing to know that kids have the same shitty taste in “modern rock” that I had when I was a kid…so long as there are suburbs without any kind of cool underground culture, this genre is never going to die.

Music festival season is well underway, and the latest offering was Lollapalooza in Chicago. Check out photos of acts like The Pretty Reckless and The Kills doing their thing from the stage. And yes, we assure you Taylor Momsen‘s wearing something ridiculous. More
Public lap dances? Pretty appropriate stuff for a 17-year-old to be doing in public, eh? Taylor Momsen pulled out her best stripper moves at a concert in Barcelona, where much of her young audience had was already half-naked. As much as this behavior creeps us out, we do have to admit there’s an interesting dynamic at play here. Teenage Taylor rebels; in response Taylor’s fans rebel; Taylor uses them to rebel some more All in all, it’s a bunch of kids playacting at being adults for the benefit of themselves. And probably some weird pervs on the Internet (we see you, creep). More
We sincerely hope that Taylor Momsen doesn’t have a stylist, because such a person would really be getting away with doing only half the work: the 17-year-old Pretty Reckless singer has made quite a name for herself as a person who wears only one article of clothing at a time. Bra, but not shirt, shirt but not pants.
Pants, Taylor, they’re called pants! More
Is Taylor Momsen 18 yet? She isn’t, we know that, but can we pretend she’s an adult for the sake of feeling less weird about the fact that she flashed the crowd at a Pretty Reckless concert in England? Here’s why this image is particularly unsettling: Imagine someone like Lady Gaga or Courtney Love or even Lita Ford pulling something like this. Midway through a set, rockstar cred blazing; we bet they’re not smiling like Taylor’s smiling in this photo — a teenager slyly giddy with the “subversive act” she’s getting away with. Is she a woman confident enough in her sexuality to incorporate that as part of her act? Nope, she’s a child playing grown-up with some pretty messed up stuff, and it’s written (in eyeliner) all over her face. More
