Taylor Momsen's 'scandalous' new video 'Miss Nothing' : Gossip Girl on a platter

Taylor-Momsen-video She’s totally not Miley, you guys! She can objectify her own self without any help from stupid Disney, dammit! Or anything resembling dignity. Or pants.

That’s the message Gossip Girl star and The Pretty Reckless frontwoman-child Taylor Momsen seems determined to drive home in every raccoon-eyed, shredded-thigh-high rebel yell she issues in interviews, on unsuspecting sidewalks, and now, in her latest video, for the single “Miss Nothing.”

I can’t lie; I moderately enjoy the whole late-period Garbage/Hole rock-vixen redux thing she’s working on the band’s new EP. In its own shamelessly derivative way, “Makes Me Wanna Die” is kind of a great Shirley Manson approximation, despite sharing its title with another, better song from (hey!) the mid ’90s.

But sweetie, no. Putting your underage heinie on the menu in the video for “Miss Nothing” is not only inappropriate (you weren’t even born until 1993), it’s unhygenic. You’ve got your hair tracks in the mashed potatoes and your ass in the cranberry sauce.

Please, just let the nice men (bandmates? uncles?), who look like they would so desperately rather be at a gig with their System of a Down cover band, drink their goblets of mead and eat their Ren Faire turkey drumsticks in peace.

Readers, if you must, grab your eatin’ bibs and watch this glorious mess after the jump:

What do you think, Music Mixers? And where, for the love of liquid liner, is her mother?

    This track isn’t even on their EP. I know they’re touring with the Warped Tour this summer, but I would have perferred a video for “My MEdicine”, I like that track a lot better than this piece of crap. If it wasn’t their first video (did they make one for “Makes Me Wanna Die”?) I’d make a joke about the last supper set-up in direct reference to this possibly being their LAST video…

  • BB

    Eh. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen but no dice. Her whole look is just not attractive so objectifying herself doesn’t seem to be an issue in my mind.

  • 4rocket

    Interesting that Miley gets slack for wearing a leotard, but no one says anything about Taylor being a year younger, yet looking like a hooker… anyway, I digress. The song’s actually good, and I personally think she has the potential to be a legit musician, but she needs to give up the Cherie Curie/Courtney Love/Shirley Manson reincarnation shtick. It’s not working because we can clearly see that it is NOT her. She tries way too hard to prove that she’s a bad-a$$. She’s only 17, she has plenty of time to grow up. Until then, she can take it east on the eyeliner and cover up a bit. And by the way, where are her parents? I’d never allow my 17-year-old to leave the house looking like that! (She does dress like this in real life, people.)

      I meant she can take it easy, apologies for not proof-reading.

    • Berryz

      yeah, where are her parents?

  • alison

    wow, I’m actually surprised that I didn’t hate the song. Not bad Little J, not bad at all.

  • Olivia Bean

    I can’t believe this is little Cindy Lou Who. I can’t believe the same person that melted the Grinch’s heart is now impersonating Courtney Love.

  • nathan everett

    u go TAY

  • Sophia

    Her music is actually GOOD. And yes, her outfits are inappropriate, and she sounds excruciatingly dim-witted in interviews and this pisses me off to no end, BUT, I guess that’s the point? She’s basically handing out giant middle fingers wherever she goes, and that’s bound to piss people off, but wasn’t that what Hole and the Runaways did too (with success?)

  • Nick

    She can sing. I see nothing really wrong with the video either. As she’s said in interviews, when is she going to wear stuff like this? When she’s in her 30s?

  • Ariana

    Every time I see her she disgusts me a little more.

  • Ash

    Ya, Nick is right. An interviewer once commented on how she dresses inappropriately for a 16 year old, but she just said “well when am I supposed to wear this stuff?”. I honestly like her music, and yes, I do wonder where the hell her parents are, but I think I might be picking up the album when it comes out.

  • Stephanie

    Looks like the demon child that Courtney Love and LiLo could never have…basically, a jailbait crack whore.

  • Laura W

    Can she just go away please. She annoys me even when she’s on gossip girl.

  • Katie

    In all honesty, the song isn’t that bad. I think she has potential, but this “I’m-so-hardcore-and-I-don’t-know-what-pants-are” routine is doing absolutely nothing for her. And this video is absolute crap. The whole time she reminds me of the girl from The Ring who crawls out of the TV…

    song is kick ass, she looks heinous but really dig her voice
