TAYLOR MOMSEN LOSES THE RACCOON EYES FOR A “MESSED UP” BEACH PARTY
June 17th, 2014. Well this is a departure. Ex-Gossip Girl Goth Girl Taylor Momsen (sans eyeliner!) and her band The Pretty Reckless are still as rock and roll as ever, but their new video, for “Messed Up World,” looks way more Coachella than Warped Tour. Just yesterday we found out that Coutney Love told Style.com, “If I see one more fucking flower crown, I’m going to kick someone’s ass,” and now the oft-compared Momsen can be seen screaming and writhing around a beach full of them. Will Love be true to her words? As of today, it’s pretty unclear who would win the fight. Spring Breakers looks tame compared to this celebutante’s high-energy vacation. Watch for plenty of nudity, girl-on-girl action and at least one bikini-clad woman who is “not a whore.” It makes perfect sense that someone as in touch with her dark side as Momsen is would appreciate one of the most depraved traditions we have (summer festivals), turning it into a seance-like jam session. After all, punk is dead, the norm is weird, weird the norm… in short, “it’s a messed up world.” Watch the NSFW video above.
