Taylor Momsen has been slammed for lighting up illegally onstage on Sunday. Taylor was performing with The Pretty Reckless in Carson, California when she took time out from their set to smoke. Taylor, 16, is two years below the legal age to buy and smoke cigarettes in the state of California.
Officials at Britain’s Action on Smoking & Health (ASH) blasted her: ‘Clearly her act is designed to shock and smoking illegally on stage is part of that act. It is to be hoped that her fans have the maturity to see that her smoking is neither cool nor glamorous but a filthy, deadly addiction and a dumb thing to do.’
