Taylor Momsen Can’t Tell You Where Scotland Is
Popeater reports that the underaged, non-pants-wearing, Rihanna trashing lead singer of The Pretty Reckless pretty recklessly tried to tell a room full of people from Glasgow, Scotland that Glasgow is not actually a city in Scotland during a show there recently. How embarrassed are you, American public school system?
In what can only be assumed to be a sneaky lesson about the importance of education, while touring with her band, The Pretty Reckless, in Glasgow last week, Momsen announced her act, telling the audience, “We are The Pretty Reckless and we have heard that Glasgow is the craziest crowd in all of England.”
Oops. Maybe she didn’t have the best geography teacher in the world, but any grade schooler should be able to tell you that England, Scotland and Wales are to Britain what New York, Wisconsin and Alabama are to America. They’re states. England is not an island, just a portion of one, and we’d expect someone who wants to be a half-naked international singing and style sensation would know something like that.
Of course, if the girl ever dressed appropriately, maybe her brain wouldn’t be frozen and she’d remember this basic lesson in where things are. Or maybe she’s a teenager and didn’t know any better. We throw up our hands.
