Pretentious yet talented rock brat Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless are set to release their debut record Light Me Up on 31st August and ahead of this, the video for their second single Miss Nothing has appeared.
This song is an absolute smash. Despite its grungy 1990s sound with the accompanying video having the same feel, the track has enough pop smarts to ensure that it has some major crossover appeal.
The video is a bit clichéd with Gossip Girl frontwoman Taylor stealing all the limelight away from her mute bandmates in the background. She writhes around on the table, throws food about and flirts aggressively with her bandmates. The sexy 16-year-old won’t particularly like this but she’s giving off serious Hole vibes, she looks like a young, less washed up Courtney Love with her raccoon style eyes and long scraggly blonde hair.
But is Momsen a good role model for young girls? Seriously all that writhing around just makes her out to be a more subtle form of pop slut, hence giving into the system by selling sex to sell records. Having just turned 19, I think I can drool over Taylor but when she does that in front of her much older bandmates and with a lot of old pervs online, I can’t help but feel uncomfortable for her.
