She loves to show off her birthday suit, and Taylor Momsen leaves little to the imagination in the new music video for “Heaven Knows” by The Pretty Reckless.

The former “Gossip Girl” starlet relies on some black tape and a long black cape to keep her personal bits covered as she sings lyrics of revolt to a group of kids.

However, Ms. Momsen told press she’s not exploiting her sexuality to sell records. Regarding the naked cover of The Pretty Reckless’ new album, she noted, "Everyone was like, 'Woah, she's naked.' But everything I do has an artistic purpose behind it, from clothing to my new record cover.”

“I don't set out to shock - I've definitely matured and evolved. I'm just a person, I make art. My sexuality is there for a reason it's not just about lewdness. In the beginning it was me in corsets and stripper heels and all that - I was a kid, everyone thought it was so shocking because I was young and you have to be older to wear that stuff. I was a kid confused about sexuality and all of that and expressing that confusion in all of it. I think all teenagers express themselves in that way, I was just being very overt about it."
