Ready to start your week with a shock video?
Gossip Girl vet Taylor Momsen shows up in a new video from the Pretty Reckless, Momsen’s rock band. The gimmicks are plenty: the clip’s in black and white, there’s no music (it’s a spoken-word verse taken from her band’s “Under the Water”), and, well, she’s naked the whole time.
Yep, naked — except for a pound of eye makeup. Needless to say, this one’s NSFW, so if you’re at the office and just really want to know more about the lyrical passage in the video, skip the following clip and head straight to the words, pasted below:
“Lay my head under the water, lay my head under the sea. Excuse me sir am I your daughter? Won’t you take me back and see? It’s not a time for being younger and all my friends are enemies. And if I cried unto my mother, she wasn’t there for me. Broken lines across my mirror show my face all red and bruised. And though I screamed and I screamed no one came running, I wasn’t saved from you. Don’t let the water drag you down, don’t let me drown in the waves. I could be found, I could be one that was saved. Lay my head under the water. Alone I pray for calmer seas. And when I wake from this dream with chains all around me … I’ve never been free.”
The video, apparently, is part of a series by Amp Rock TV project called “The Words.” Thoughts?
