Taylor Momsen SUGAR scans! It it hard to be taken seriously because you’re 16? Sure. But I don’t understand it. Rock stars have always been young. Bob Dylan was 17 when he started, but I guess Disney killed that. There were a lot of young Disney artists who are very bubblegum and cheery and happen to be the same age, so they take away from me.
On Miley Cyrus comparison: I listen to Oasis and the Beatles, so I don’t know what Miley Cyrus is singing about. But apparently we’re the same age so people think we’re the same or something? Oh and apparently I’m a worse role model than her. Well, I probably am!’
What do you think about reality stars who make music? When I was nine I wrote a song called Blackout. And I think that Heidi Montag just sang a song that a nine-year-old wrote. So that’s what I think about that.’
How do you feel about criticism? The horrible things they say are funny. There was some headline that said, ‘Taylor’s soul is as black as her eyeliner’! I was peeing myself I was laughing so hard. I think it’s hysterical. There are comments that are so outrageously ridiculous, it’s like, ‘Yes, fine, I’m a devil worshipping satanic rock girl who’s come to corrupt your children and eat their blood.‘
Does it hurt? Why would I care what Sally from Minnesota says? I’ve never met her and I probably never will. Perez disses on everyone and all he can say about me is that I’m so ugly. You can hate me all you want, I don’t care if you hate me. But don’t hate me for the sound bite that was spun to create a story, because that’s not who I really am at all.’
