Taylor Momsen Facts
She audtioned for the starring role in Hannah Montana and made it in to the top three, but was beaten to the role by Miley Cyrus. Still, looks like things worked out okay for her.
She says her idols are Robert Plant, John Lennon and Kurt Cobain. Fortunately, she doesn’t look like any of them.
She fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless. She’s also a) pretty and b) reckless, so you can see what she did there.
Why We Love Taylor Momsen
Unless you recall seeing Taylor Momsen playing cute kiddy Cindy Lou in the 2000 movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas (and if you do, but you’ve only just realised, then we’ve probably just partially ruined both that movie and Taylor for you) then she probably came to your attention the same way she came to ours: playing spiky rich-girl Jenny Humphrey in mucky teen drama Gossip Girl, and as lead singer of The Pretty Reckless, causing the Daily Mail to get itself into a massive tizzy when she appeared onstage with nought but thin strips of tape across her nips.
Taylor cemented her oven-hot bad-girl status when she graced the cover of FHM’s March 2012 edition, looking like the reborn spirit of grunge, except sexy and not whiffy.
