Taylor Momsen Grazia Magazine excepts: ‘I went to a super-repressed Catholic school. That was something I had to overcome actually, they really f***ing make you feel like sex is wrong, but I think it’s natural. My best friend’s my vibrator. I don’t date anyone, so why not? Guys can masturbate, why can’t girls?
I don’t understand why it makes people uncomfortable. Sex is a part of life, it shouldn’t be so scandalous.. My style’s not for everyone, I’m an extremist. But my mom loves fashion, so she gets it. My dad is the one who introduced me to rock ‘n’ roll, playing me The Beatles and The Who. They know that sex and rock ‘n’ roll go together, you can’t have one without the other.’
Does you think you persona has an impact on children? ‘I probably am a bad influence.. The other day, this reporter brought his 12-year-old daughter to an interview. She was looking at me open-mouthed, like: ‘I want stripper shoes,
Daddy!’ He hated me! But I’m not saying, ‘Be like me.’ I hope girls read what I say in interviews, they should just be themselves. They wouldn’t want to be like me. I’m crazy. I’m f**king out of my mind. I’ve been told I was out of my mind since I was 11.’
