Taylor Momsen Strips Down (Again) for Maxim Magazine
Former actress, Pretty Reckless front woman and person you forgot actually existed, Taylor Momen, is the somewhat random star of Maxim‘s November issue. She’s also sitting on a toilet wearing only a bra and a dismal expression, wasting a perfectly good lipstick and giving us stoner bedroom eyes.
The explanation? Momsen is currently in the middle of promoting her band’s new album Going to Hell. We’re not too sure this is the punishment you get these days from looking generally angsty and defacing restrooms with cosmetics. In a post-Miley Cyrus world, it probably isn’t, but perhaps Taylor’s already got a spot reserved — after all, she was rocking raccoon eyes and stripper heels while Miley was still Hannah Montana.
Her album release is apparently the latest in a long string of awe-inspiring accomplishments. Maxim recounts them thusly:
She starred as Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, enjoyed a four-season stint on Gossip Girl, toured the world with Marilyn Manson, and was selected as the face of Madonna’s fashion line. Now, with the release of her band’s second album, Going to Hell, and their current tour, she clearly has her sights set on becoming a bona fide music star.
No wonder she looks so tired.
