Taylor Momsen: Black Heart Bar Babe
Making her way around London, England, Taylor Momsen dropped by the Black Heart bar in Camden on Wednesday night (March 19).
The Pretty Reckless lead singer wore her usual black leather pants/black leather platform boots combo along with a big winter jacket as she glared at the paparazzi and scurried inside.
In a new interview, Taylor shares that even though it’s been almost four years, she’s still bothered by the fact that a photographer caught her in a compromising moment on stage at the Warped Tour.
She explains, "My tampon string was put on the Internet when I was 15 because some a**hole shot up my dress and it made big headlines. For a year, if you Googled 'Taylor Momsen' the tampon photo was the first thing that came up. When that happens, you just go, 'I really just don't give a f*ck,' and you close the computer. People are going to say what they're going to say, and the tabloids will always spin sh*t."
As for her choice to ditch “Gossip Girl” and go on tour, Momsen notes, "I started modeling at 2, and then acting at 3, and then Gossip Girl when I was 12, so I wasn't really making my own decisions. When I got to a place where I realized I was in control of my own life, and had found the right band, and everything was coming to fruition, it wasn't even a question: I was going to quit my day job. I came to set every day with a f**kin' guitar. But I'm very lucky that the producers were nice enough to write me out, allow me to tour, and pursue my passion, because they very easily could have told me to go f*ck myself and keep me on the show."
