Taylor Momsen, ‘People Don’t Really Take Me Seriously BECAUSE I’m 16 Years Old’

taylor-momsen-16


Taylor Momsen revealed to Seventeen that she is sick of people reminding her that she’s only 16: ‘I think people don’t really take me seriously because I’m 16. And they think most 16-year-olds don’t know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I’ve been thinking about it since I was [two-years-old].

I am angsty. I’ll be angsty until I’m 80 years old. I think that keeps things fresh. But I always think angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers. It just means you’re figuring s*** out, and I don’t know why that’s a negative thing.’

On loving being the lead singer of her band The Pretty Wreckless: ‘I love working. I’m a workaholic, and no one believes it. I’m in the recording studio until three in the morning.’

    I kinda like her. I met her because her band was opening up for The Veronicas over the Summer. Got an autograph and a picture. I use to think she was a huge bitch but after meeting her, she is the most down to earth person I’ve ever met.

    WHO THE HELL IS SHE EVEN? WTF

    She’s pretty.

  • Fuck Seventeen Magazine

    BRENDA SONG IS ONE BILLIONS TIMES MORE POPULAR THAN TAYLOR MOMSEN ACCORDING TO GOOGLE…
    http://google.com/trends?q=brenda+song%2C+taylor+momsen

    THEY calculate the volume of searches and guess who people have been searching more for? Brenda Song. In every single country, Brenda beats Taylor in the internet searches. So how come Brenda’s never been on the cover of Seventeen Magazine in the US? She did in Malaysia, she appeared on the cover a lot of times in Seventeen Malaysia but wtf? No one gives a fuck about Seventeen Malaysia. Why’s there even a Seveteen Magazine issue in South Eastern Asia?

    SEVENTEEN MAGAZINE IS RACIST
    BRENDA’S SHOW ALSO BEATS THAT SHITTY GOSSIP GIRL SHOW IN THE RATINGS WORLDWIDE.

    There are soooo many reasons why people don’t take you seriously darling, and your age isn’t one of them.

    I love her. Because she’s who she want to be. And she is rock.

    She doesn’t seem like she’s 16. That means I’m older than her. Which is crazy. She’s really pretty though, and I like that she’s herself.

    No one takes you seriously because you repeatedly try and convince the world that your mentality is so much older than your physical age, and that you can’t stand hanging out with teens your age.
    Or maybe the fact that you perform half naked. Which is not a necessity to manifest your persona to the world. That’s why your in a band in the first place, because your music speaks for you.

  • stori39

    @Laura.
    When I said she was tryin to be an adult, I wasn’t talking about her “maturity”. It was her actions.
    U can be mature w/o smoking cigarettes and wearing lingerie in public.

    I’m tired of people saying, “She’s not afraid to be herself…”
    Ok, sorry, but we’ve seen this waaaay too many times before.
    I’m tired of these actresses/singers coming in and wearing tons of black eyeliner and acting so ~hardcore~ because they think it makes them unique.
    It’s old now.
    It started with Joan Jett and it should have ended with Joan Jett.

    If you want to be unique and have people take you seriously, act like a lady and carry yourself with grace.

    No one takes her seriuosly because she tries waaay to hard to act like what she thinks a ~”hard-core rocker” is supposed to act, what wih the lingerei in public and the smoking…shes selling herself short, and thats too bad. Im really scared that one day im going to turnon E news and find out she died of drug OD

    Ok…meeting her once does not tell you who someone is. She went to my school in nyc, PPAS (professional performing arts school) and dropped out last year because her friends graduated. She’s a huge bitch. And I’ve known her since I was in 6th grade (and she was in 7th) so if anyone tries to tell me that “she’s not mean! She’s sweet. I’ve met her once!” they can stfu.

    No one takes this girl seriously because she is so up her ass. She is way too pretentious, acts like she is fucking 30, dresses like a hooker and repeatedly tries to convince the world she much more “mature” than every other teen star. Honey, if you were mature you would know dressing like a stripper isn’t the way to do it. There is a difference in LOOKING mature and actually being it.

    I love her SO SO SO SO (…) SO much!!! =]

    nobody takes you seriously because you’re a 16 year old who is trying to grow up too much too soon. everyone says you have an attitude problem, therefore why she’s lost her job on Gossip Girl but hey whatever. Wait till you’re 18; if you’re still around then and done something other then get on magazines for dressing like a trashy younger courtney love then maybe we’ll take you seriously

  • purplekoolaid

    No one takes this bitch seriously because she TRIES TOO HARD! ok taylor momsen, we get it. you’re a “badass.” you smoke and get drunk and dress like a prostitute and would die immediately without a hefty supply of eyeliner. we get that you’re “angsty” and soooo misunderstood. cause we all know gossip girl is the most HARDCORE show on the earth. and posing for magazines like seventeen and bop, and walking the red carpet just screams REBEL and ANTI-MAINSTREAM. now please for the love of all that is good in the world shut the fuck up.

    this girls parents need to get bitch slapped. i would never let me child act the way she does.

    if she’s so ~hardcore~ and ~angsty~ why is she on the cover of seventeen?
    but yeah, there’s no need to hate on her, let’s just let her live her life, if she wants to have lung cancer at the age of 20, well, what can we do? it’s just sad, i hope she quits smoking, and she can walk around naked if she wants, well, that’s her choice, you can either choose to ignore it or to hate on her, and i can assure you that the best option would be to just ignore it. so yeah :)

    +she is down to earth

    +she is around older people so of course some of it is going to rub off on her

    +she is not afraid to speak out

    most of you oceanupers are just annoyed she isn’t another selena gomez or miley.
    shock! horror!
    she doesn’t sing pop!
    shock! horror!
    she isn’t bright and perky constantly and give you a headache with her “i won’t do anything stupid as its not rolemodel material”
    rolemodels are someone you look up to- people make mistakes and aren’t perfect. you learn from them.

    it doesn’t really matter.
    i don’t see why everyone think she’s a massive “slut”.

    every teenager tries to find themselves.
    this is probably who she is – so get over it.

    everyone has good points and bad points.
    she’s just showing her, good and bad.

    if you don’t like it, get over it.
    it’s not your decision on how she dresses.

    though, pretty sure she shouldn’t wear lingerie on stage.

    You’re right, she;s not afraid to be herself….I like that.
    But the whole thing about people not liking her because she’s doesn’t sing pop and is manufactured by disney…..there are a millions of singers out there who aren’t manufactured by disney….she would not be the first.
    And then the whole “She’s around older people so of course some of it is going to rub off on her.” Just becuase you’re eolder does not mean you act a certain way. I hang out with plenty of older people due to the fact that I’m 18, and I don’t go around wearing lingerie when I perform on stage. I let my music express who I am.
    “rolemodels are someone you look up to- people make mistakes and aren’t perfect. you learn from them.”
    Mistakes?…….You’re right they do, but it’s no longer considered a mistake when it becomes a ritual…that converts into a habit.

    It seems that Miley Cyrus does not dress any better than Taylor Momsen these days. Let’s not be hypocritical here. I’m not a Miley hater nor a Taylor fan but at least Taylor doesn’t make excuses for herself. Love her or hate her, she is the way she is. And she works hard. I wonder what HM would have been like with her in it.

    honestly. I have mixed feelings about her.she’s only 16 & she smokes already? That’s horrible.she wants to be seen as a more older & mature person but no one can take her seriously when she doesnt even know how to make good choices for herself.the whole band thing is too cleshe for me. She’s pretty but she wears to much makeup& looks more like a 20 year old rather then 16. I could see her becoming a lindsay lojan.:/

    And this is why no one takes her seriously. She thinks people don’t like her because she’s 16 but she hasn’t realized people don’t like her because she LITERALLY dresses like a stripper when she’s only 16. We don’t care that you’re a 16 year old actress, we care that you dress like a 16 year old porn star!

  • Ano

    A teen who always looks drugged.
    We’re meant to take her seriously?

    No wonder she always looks tired! All that shit on her eyes must be weighing her eye-lids down!

    Thank you!
    And yes she does seem like a child crying out for attention.
    All I’m trying to say is that no matter your age, you don’t have to go around exposing yourself to prove that you’re unique.

    People don’t take her seriously because she acts WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY too old for her age! If she acted her age, people might take her seriously.

    Love her and Jenny Humphrey, she is who she is.
    And if she smoke WHAT, i mean a lot of teenangers smoke too but nobody said anything because they are not famous.

    TAYLOR YOU ROCKS!

  • FUCK SEVENTEEN MAGAZINE

    I like Taylor, i think that she’s a good actress and all. But why the fuck is she on the cover of Seventeen Magazine? Shouldn’t FAMOUS young adults be on the cover? What has she done other than Gossip Girl? what the damn fuck.

  • Chloeeeeeeeeee

    No one takes you seriously because you are a 16yo. & even when you smoke on a cancer stick & dress like a slut you still won’t be treated like an adult. Embrace your youth. You idiot.

  • Ano

    i dont know who she is
    but she seems like just another conventionally pretty hollywood girl who seeks attention
    she doesnt really stand out from all the other hollywood teens as far as im concerned.
    sorry love…whoever you are.

  • HeyWoahHey

    I’d respect you more if you wore some CLOTHES. You work in new York! It’s not exactly Jamaica, girl! Seriously, if you were 30 I wouldn’t care what you wear, but you’re a year younger than me. Stop acting like you’re some hard core intellectual gift to all of us mere mortals.

    she isn’t bright and perky constantly and give you a headache with her “i won’t do anything stupid as its not rolemodel material”
    rolemodels are someone you look up to- people make mistakes and aren’t perfect. you learn from them.

    This girl is just stupid. I don’t take her seriously, because she’s a KID ACTING LIKE AN ADULT. This ‘noone takes me serious because of my age’ crap is so childish. You can be taken seriously at this age. Look at Dakota Fanning or Abigail Breslin. They don’t want to be look like grown ups, because they know they are not.

  • nia

    No one takes you seriously because you repeatedly try and convince the world that your mentality is so much older than your physical age, and that you can’t stand hanging out with teens your age.
    Or maybe the fact that you perform half naked. Which is not a necessity to manifest your persona to the world. That’s why your in a band in the first place, because your music speaks for you.

    agreed.

  • Mimi

    Nobody takes you seriously cause you look like a 50-year old drug junkie and might/can be the next lindsay lohan, put too much eye shadow and should invest in a shower/ ALSO a smoker who is worth nothing and thinks she’s a badass…wake me up when she’s dead..
    that was a little evil right? :P only the last part…

  • lovatocyrusjonaslove

    people on here are so fucking dumb it’s not even funny lol how the hell would you know she’s not being her self you don’t know her she doesn’t owe any of you physco’s anything love her or hate her she is working her ass off while you guys will be 30 years old still saying omg niley ftw on ou grow the hell up and she is actually defending some of you idiots because judging from how you guys talk and act on here i can’t see any body over the age of 18 taking you seriously and if your over 18 and talk retarded like this i’ll pray for you
    go Taylor Momsen keep making that paper while the haters sit back an imagine what they so lack in life.

    “Here is the scoop – there was a role to be Dakota’s sister, Marie Currie, and Taylor wanted to BAD. She did that really racey photoshoot quickly (the one where her ass was hanging out) and started singing with a band just in the middle of the casting process. She thought she was a shoe-in, but little did she know they had no interest in casting her for that role. She was trying way too hard and many people had a good laugh at her behind her back!”

    Girlfran needs a clue.

    In 5 years she’ll look back on her teenage years and think “God damn I was a twat – waffle.”

    Maybe you should stop throwing your angst in everyone’s faces. No one gives a shit your angsty. Maybe theyd take you more seriously if you presented yourself in a more serious manner.
    _______________________

    i agree. couldnt have put it better myself.
    Why is wearing lingerie in public gonna make people take you seriously and show that your “angsty” ?!

    by the way why is she even on the cover of this magazine?!
    shes not even that famous as far as im concerned…shes not really very famous outside of america really lol

    angst is something people will decide. and its shown.
    saying “im angsty” just makes you look like more of a poser.

  • Ano

    — Maybe cause she’s more mature than teens of her age. And she probably can’t stand them.

    THATS THE REASON I CANT TAKE HER SERIOUSLY
    SHES ALWAYS
    “IM SO MATURE, SO MUCH MORE MATURE THAN PEOPLE MY OWN AGE.”
    MY ASSSSS UR MATURE…U WALK AROUND IN LINGERIE, ARE A POSER AND PLAGERISE LYRICS.

    No one takes this bitch seriously because she TRIES TOO HARD! ok taylor momsen, we get it. you’re a wannabe “badass.” you smoke and get drunk and dress like a prostitute and would die immediately without a hefty supply of eyeliner. we get that you’re “angsty” and soooo misunderstood. cause we all know gossip girl is the most HARDCORE show on the earth. and posing for magazines like seventeen and bop, and walking the red carpet just screams REBEL and ANTI-MAINSTREAM. now please for the love of all that is good in the world shut the fuck up.

    this girls parents need to get bitch slapped. i would never let me child act the way she does.

    I SO AGREE.

    hi

  • Michelly-Oh

    are y’all serious. she’s probably the most real actress out their right now. i love the fact that she’s not afraid to be herself and take risks. it’s teen actors like her that are going to be lasting and the most stable. i love selena and demi but i have a feeling that they are being held back and one day they are going to rebel in a serious wayy
    ————————–

    Sweetie……she’s not stable.
    In a couple of years she’ll be known as Hollywoods greatest slut. Because after the Gossip Girl exposure, I’m sure she’ll move onto greater things that involve poles.
    Or how about Hollywoods greates adrenaline junkie. Taylor Momsen dies on stage trying to do a backflip.
    Or Hollywoods greatest drug junkie.
    If she starts out so young she’ll just take it farther as she gets older.
