Taylor Momsen featured in Celebs Sunday. Credit: The Pretty Reckless Net: ‘I loved dancing growing up so I listened to rock records in my spare time, but I danced to Britney Spears. Pop has to exist and it’s a great thing. But there needs to be a balance. To set the record straight, I think Rihanna is fantastic and looks great. In fact I think everyone should have a leather jacket in their wardrobe. If you don’t have a leather jacket in your wardrobe get one!’
I get told all the time that I’m a fashion icon now, but I don’t really now what that means. I just get dressed. But yeah it’s great when I’m called Madonna’s muse. She’s an icon. So to be asked to model for her line was an honour. She came to the shoot and took some pictures. She’s hands-on with the styling and was ripping up shirts and stuff and even took some of the pictures.
People hear lyrics like, ‘Make me want to die’ which is a really sad song and they’re like, ‘That’s so mean.’ Yeah, it’s a heavy record, but it’s about life, and life is not rainbows and butterflies. I haven’t lived a normal life and even though I did go to school I was in and out. I had like, two friends growing up, but now my band is like my family. I didn’t have the chance to go to school and be normal.
I was always kind of the weird kid who was in movies and I was very shy. I also went to a Catholic school and now I have a song called Goin’ Down, so enough said! When I was at elementary school in Missouri I wore knee-high socks and got made fun of all the time, now I’m famous for my thigh-highs. Ironic.‘
