You guys, you are not going to BELIEVE this: Taylor Momsen was quoted in Disorder Magazine that she's "bored of men" and that her "best friend is her vibrator." OMG!!!
I know, right? Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Who the hell is Taylor Momsen?
It turns out Ms. Momsen stars on Gossip Girl, which I've only seen a few times, but my immediate thought was: Wait, people are freaking out because one of the actresses admits to using a vibrator? Isn't this the show with the poster tag-lines, "Every parent's nightmare," "A nasty piece of work," and "OMFG"?
Okay, so it also turns out Taylor Momsen is all of 17 and 2 days old.
Critics are condemning Taylor and her sex-toy practice, including a Dr. Bill Donohue from The Catholic League, who provided this colorful commentary:
"Our society was a much happier place when Annette Funicello pranced around as a ‘Mickey Mouse Mouseketeer,' and now we have Taylor Momsen prancing around with a dildo in hand."
My, that's a rather ... vivid image, Dr. Donohue. Just saying, it seems like you've got a pretty clear mental picture going on. What with all the prancing and all.
Dr. Scott Turansky of the National Center for Biblical Parenting also spoke out against the young actress with the following:
"Taylor Momsen is projecting a negative image that will result in failure in her life. Sadly, she is influencing other young women to follow in her steps."
All right, doctors, let's get ourselves under control here. I'm pretty sure one magazine quote alluding to masturbation from a young, reckless actress isn't going to result in society lying in ruins (dildos everywhere, batteries slowly grinding to a halt, etc.).
However, Taylor IS underage. Technically, she can't legally even buy a vibrator, never mind the part about being, like, sooooo bored by men.
What do you guys think? Are her statements simply provocative words designed to stir up controversy (and attention for her aspiring rock career) -- or is this a case of yet another out-of-control minor who's heading down a bad path?
