Taylor Momsen

Post by Gigglesx0 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 11:25 am

Okay, so what do all of you think of Taylor Momsen attempting to re-inact Courtney Love or the old 90's grunge era.

For those of you who don't know who she is, She's the lead singer of "The Pretty Reckless." Was on Gossip girls, and played Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch.

See, personally, I "kinda like" her. But sometimes I find her attempt to be so "Rock and Roll" as kind of pathetic. I mean, it seems it should come natural. And her attempt at copying Joann Jett and Courtney love sometimes bugs me. I don't know, I like when artists are more original than sort of following trends. I believe she's okay though.

I don't know, I watched interviews on her, and I can't seem to truly "love" her personality. Opinions? :P

that's why I don't like many postgrunge bands. I mean some are really cool and stuff but others are like trying way too hard to be and look grungey. But whatever that's just my messed up point of view.

Man, it´s ridiculous trying to be somebody you´re not. If your try too hard to be like those you admire, you´re not worth being admired by someone else.

I was never really into her, and I thought it was weird she was in a grunge band yet on some show apparently about gossip, and tried out to be Hanna Montana but Miley got it, so essentially she would have been her had she gotten it, so I basically view her the way I view Miley covering Smells Like Teen Spirit and wearing Nirvana shirts, but a while ago I made a post on my new grunge bands page about female musicians, and a girl who follows my page said "the pretty reckless is run by a diva poser SLUT who i had the displeasure of working with." and "taylor momsen literally thinks shes gods gift to the world. opened for her band and her band mates ALL talked mad shit about her. its fuckin pathetic. she bought off her band. didnt even stay to watch our set and shes RUDE." so yeah I totally can't imagine liking her, and she really seems like she's trying to rip off Courtney Love with that whole attitude, and I'm sure she just wants attention.

As you said, she should stop being a cretin and start acting naturally...unless she is a cretin. I wouldn't doubt that.

That's all so true. Also on Courtney Love's Twitter, she wrote something about Taylor Momsen copying her as being creepy and that Taylor was completely disturbing. So that proves that Taylor isn't even appealing to Courtney. Also, when it comes to Perez Hilton, he insults her often as well. Even though he had an interview with her, which he was apparently being fake as well. I would admire her a whole lot more if she would just be herself and maybe if the "Rock and Roll" in her was more natural and original, I'd be a fan.

For the life of me I had 120 % forgotten about Taylor Momsen until I saw this thread.

Last time I heard of Taylor Momsen was when her band was opening for Soundgarden on their tour and performed some songs for the tribute show.

Matt Cameron posted yesterday a photo in Instagram from studio drumming, caption said "New jams with Taylor Momsen"
