Taylor Momsen performed at the Vans Warped Tour in Carson, California Friday (June 25) and wore these clear stripper heels with room for cash. I can’t help it; I lol’d. I particularly like how they say “TIPS” on the side, like, don’t be gettin’ any crazy iders and puttin’ ur crack in here. This is for TIPS ONLY!
Anyway. Because I knew nothing about Taylor’s band, The Pretty Reckless, I looked it up today. In March 2009, they were signed to Interscope Records and Taylor (allegedly) wrote all of the songs, sang and played guitar on their debut album, which is cool, if it is true. It’s not my kind of music, but still–way to go Taylor. Her new single is Make Me Wanna Die.
It seems like she’s ripping off Courtney Love a lil, but Taylor does not like being compared to Courtney Love! Taylor told EW in April, “I don’t wanna be Courtney Love–I wanna be Kurt Cobain. He’s brilliant and his songs are genius. The Hole records are great. Everyone always compares me to Courtney Love because they think we, like, dress the same and we both have blonde hair, wear lipstick and dresses. But I’m sorry, don’t a lot of girls dress like that? I look at Nirvana. I don’t look at Hole.”
Well, you’re lucky anyone is comparing you to Courtney Love/Hole and not just Avril Lavigne. And you should put more than a dollar in your shoe.
P.S. In the smackdown to be the biggest prostitot, who is currently winning: Taylor Momsen or Miley Cyrus?
