Seventeen year old Taylor Momsen graces the cover of this month’s issue of rock glossy Revolver magazine — and, true to form, she’s wearing next-to-nothing, her signature scowl, and about five pounds of black eyeliner. Though Momsen is not the first teenage celebrity to pose half naked on the cover of a magazine, she is, however, the first 17-year-old celebrity to do so in stripper heels and with a revolver in one hand and a shotgun in the other.
We know we’re hard on Momsen (though we place the majority of the blame on her parents: we were all teenagers once) but this cover is really pushing it. Maybe its the gun, maybe it’s the in-your-face sexuality (as opposed to the Lolita stylings of past “scandalous” teen celeb covers), or maybe its the dead-eyed scowl which peers out from under the tangled tendrils of bleach-blonde extensions, but all we can think as we see this cover is, “She’s only 17!”
Because we know Hollywood is hard on its starlets (talk about a Madonna / Whore complex!) we’ve included some past teen covers from the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears below — all of which came under fire for being too racy. How do you think Momsen’s cover compares?
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
