When she was fifteen...
Taylor Momsen says she's still not a big fan of the media, stemming back to when upskirt pictures made it online when she was fifteen. Taylor told E! that fame is "so fleeting and stupid," noting that the 2010 pictures traumatized her.
Taylor said, "My tampon string was put on the Internet when I was 15 because some asshole 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 fuck,' and you close the computer. People are going to say what they're going to say, and the tabloids will always spin shit."
Taylor is now performing regularly with her hard rock band The Pretty Reckless, where she's known for being provocative. She said of complaints, "Sexuality and rock 'n' roll go hand-in-hand and have since the beginning of time," she says, "and if anyone thinks I'm doing anything more controversial than fuckin' Led Zeppelin, you're insane, because I can see Robert Plant's fuckin' dick, you know?"
