Taylor Talking Shiz! Momsen Slams Courtney Love

| Filed under: Courtney LoveTaylor Momsen



Hardcore rocker/teen actress Taylor Momsen gave another riveting interview about her band The Pretty Reckless and her musical inspirations.

Apparently she thinks she's the next Kurt Cobain! LOLs!

Here are some HIGHlights:

On the band's upcoming album:
"It’s coming out this summer. We wrote it as a record, so every song is part of a bigger thing. I don’t know—I just want people to hear it!"

On her biggest musical influence:
"The Beatles did everything first, and they did it the best."

On being compared to Courtney Love:
"I don’t wanna be Courtney Love—I wanna be Kurt Cobain. He’s brilliant and his songs are genius. The Hole records are great. Everyone always compares me to Courtney Love because they think we like dress the same and we both have blond hair, wear lipstick and dresses. But I’m sorry, don’t a lot of girls dress like that? I look at Nirvana. I don’t look at Hole."

On her wardrobe choices:

"I don't really like pants, man. I like tights. I'm not really a pants person…I choose not to wear pants."

Oh, that's appropriate for a 16-year-old! Seriously, where is this girl's mother?!

  1. 1

    She didn't 'slam' anyone. Also, I can tell just by looking at them that this band sucks and none of the guys in it are even close to being fuckable.

  2. 2

    OH shut the fuck up. Everytime someone tries to do something other than pop (poop?) you hate, What she says is perfectly OK.

  3. 3

    Oh yeah Perez she really SLAMMED Courtney with those harsh remarks, someone is losing sleep tonight.

    You hypocritical fat fuck you overblow everything.

  4. 4

    Lookit … you're no Courtney Hole, in fact, I could probably show you so many discrepancies in your hole(s) that you'd need to address before blabbing to everyone that you've got a hole that's almost like Courtney's, sort of.
    Anyway, unless you've got a sex-tape documenting your hole(s), you're no Courtney hole.
    Got it ?!?

  5. 5

    Does this bitch think Kurt Cobain would like her dissing his humous wife. She is a nobody and the fact that someone is nicely comparing her to Love is an honor in it's self. Sure Love is a train wreck, but she and Hole are great. Spoiled Little Bitch

  6. 6

    why do you hate her? for a girl as young as she is, she seems quite knowledgeable and at least shes trying to do SOMETHING other than just show up at clubs for paid appearances like lindsay lohan (yet). If I was you I would support her while shes actually trying to WORK at such a young age. She never said shes the next kurt. She said she hopes to be like him. And tights are perfectly suitable for a teen to wear. Whats your problem with her?

  7. 7

    Shut up, asshole. She's just going through that "I'm so different and emo and introspective" phase that we all went through at 16. At least she's not talking about how much she loves bullshit like Justin Bieber and Lady GagGag.

  8. 8

    Oooops ?!?
    Apparently she's either being home-schooled, or Perez, again, is 'protecting' minors from what they should, themselves, already be up to speed with … unless you're worried about religious zealots controlling the free flow of speech.
    WTF gives ?!?

  9. 9

    LMAO! This chick and her band are gonna go nowhere. For one she's a spoiled bratty teen who knows shit about what real angst, depression, and suffering is.

    Two, anyone else creeped out by the band photo? It looks like a bunch of thirty year olds with a 16 year old thrown in.

  10. 10

    doing lines and getting parenting advice from Dina Lohan Im sure

  11. 11

    OMG how desperate are these guys for money to be in a band with this dingbat? LOL!

  12. 12


  13. 13

    I'm still waiting on the Courtney Love slam. Didn't see it in there!

  14. 14

    What did she say that was so inappropriate for a 16 year old? And when did she slam Courtney Love? She's just like any other kid her age trying to find who she is and what direction she's going in. You're just trying to stir shit.

  15. 15

    She didn´t slam anyone! Her comment is pretty savvy for a 16 year old. I´m with Taylor on this one!

  16. 16

    Perez Hilton is the first woman hating gay man I've ever encountered…Well, maybe he doesn't hate all women…just the ones with true talent.

  17. 17

    No slammage done here, so fuck off, thanks :)

  18. 18

    You're just grasping for anything to hate about this girl aren't you Perez? I love Courtney and she did not slam her in anyway. She also didn't say she was the "next Kurt Cobain", she said she looks to him for musical inspiration. And as for liking dresses to pants …"Oh, that's appropriate for a 16 year old"… Are you serious right now? Since when are dresses not appropriate for a girl? Fuck you're SMRT.

  19. 19

    I wouldn't want to be compared to Courtney Love either.

  20. 20

    Re: PrinceD

    I'm sure he wouldn't give three fucks seeing how he hated her in the fucking end.

  21. 21

    What a bunch of wierdos. I guess band spots are grim these days.

  22. 22

    This dumb little twat is getting on my last nerve…

  23. 23

    This was all over the web yesterday or the day before, You are still a day behind I see. I do not think that she said anything bad. Not sure why you pick on her.

  24. 24

    She is absolutely right. Hole has a cult following (AT BEST) - BUT….Nirvana changed the face of music for an entire generation!!!! Don't you get it? If Gag-Gag or Madge had said it you would be like *Brilliant!!!*

  25. 25

    I'm going to have to go with PrinceD on this one. This little sewer rat needs to shut her mouth, she can't even touch Hole or Nirvana. Her parents shouldn't even be letting her speak publicly as it is obvious she has no intelligence.

  26. 26

    What's her band's name again? I doubt anyone cares. I've never heard any of their "songs" (can hardly be called that with her voice. Ew.) on the radio, and anytime I listen to a video posted here of her singing, it makes me want to die.

    She'll never be Kurt Cobain. Her band will never be like Nirvana. She'll never measure up to Courtney Love either. She needs to get over herself.

    I'm 17, and if this girl was at MY high school, she'd be known as a school whore I bet. Probably a stoner too. So, her words and actions can't really be excused by "she's just a teenager" - most of us have more of a brain than that.

  27. 27

    Um, she said she wants to BE LIKE Kurt Cobain. She did not say "she was the next Kurt Cobain" Fucking dumbass. Just because she doesn't sing pop bullshit doesn't mean she won't come out to be more successful than she already is. If any of you even listened to her music you would see that her voice and music is very mature for her age. She's not a talentless fatfuck like "Perez"

  28. clo27 says – reply to this


    she's an annoying little turd. hole sucks, nirvana sucks, and her gay little band probably sucks ass too. btw, congratulations to the parents who raised their 16 year old to look like a little crack whore.

  29. 29

    Oh and I forgot to mention, who cares if Taylor talks "shiz" I remember not too long ago Courtney was badmouthing Taylor and how she was copying her. Real classy Courtney. Maybe Perez and Courtney would get along great, they both pick on little kids. Except Perez only picks on little girls, because he's a sexist bastard.

  30. 30

    What irritates me about her is how she thinks so highly of herself, like she's the shit.

    Give her a year or two and she is going to ask herself, "What the fuck was I thinking?"

  31. 31

    Here's the thing… I actually really like her music! Though she acts like a dumb bitch and says stupid things sometimes, she still is very talented. Yupp

  32. 32

    She's not really ripping her at all. huh.

  33. 33

    i like that shes kind of edgy. whats wrong with wearing tights and heavy makeup? be who you want to be.
    p.s. their song "make me wanna die" is fun to rock out to :)

  34. 34

    She's on GOSSIP GIRL. That's seriously the worst show on tv. all she does is read those AWFULLY written lines like a robot and glamorize drug use and bullying and excessive materialism. If she had ANY MIND OF HER OWN she'd quit that show.

    nobody compares her to courtney love, they just say that she's trying to copy her. that's not really comparing. courtney's look had thought behind it - those little bows and dresses and bleach blonde hair and red lipstick and tiaras all represent the fucked up and shallow way women are viewed. she didn't do that because it was stylish at the time.

    i don't know this girl, but she seems like a little pretty rich girl. i'm not actually judging her, not that many disney girls have goals like this, so i think that's cool. I JUST hope she gets her OWN look and quits that horrible show and I hope she isn't such a spoiled rich kid, then I'd wish her the best of luck with her band. she needs to find out who she is and make her own decisions, if she's a good kid then i wish her success. there's no way of knowing because i haven't met her, but judging by her "work" on that show she hasn't half a brain.

  35. 35

    @hottstuff why are you hating on stoners? You're only 17 years old, you have plenty of time to f* up your own life… stop being so judgemental. Courtney Love, while not being everyones cup of tea, is a talented individual and some little girl who just happens to be on a trendy tv show shouldn't hate on her for getting where she is for being herself, not a wanna-be-different-i'm so emo- chick.

  36. 36

    This 16 year old has some sense. Courtney Love has NO TALENT. If it wasn't for Cobain, she'd be where she belongs, sitting and drinking in lower middle class suburbia, her heritage though she denies it.

  37. 37

    Ohmyfuckinggod–shut up.
    I can't wait until Courtney rips apart this narcissistic little bitch on levels she can't even comprehend.
    I can't wait until 'gossip girl' comes to an end, and she's left jobless trying to make a living with her shitty little band. Ha.
    Courtney will have the last laugh.

  38. 38

    Wow…don't you sound like a pissy bitch Perez!!!!!!!!! My my my…don't be such an ass…This young woman can actually sing ya know and for the life of me, I can't figure out what it is that you have against her…oh and to the person(s) who insulted the guys in the band…get a life…this is about music. I'm sure all of you are fucking super models…losers

  39. 39

    if this girl quits that awful show and turns out to not be such a spoiled little pretty rich kid with no brain and if she actually gets her own look then i'll support her and her band. i've never met her, but if she actually happens to be a good kid THEN i think it's cool, and i wish her luck. otherwise, not so much…

  40. 40

    She didn't say she was Kurt Cobain nor did she talk shit on Courtney Love. I don't think people should be bashing Momsen either, so what if she doesn't wear pants? Its a fashion statement, and one that even Gaga has. People in this industry will find anything a star says to uplift their own careers. Shame Perez.

  41. 41

    *likes her by default due to marios hate

  42. 42

    i know this is off topic but i was searching for something on google and i noticed this message at the bottom .."In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 2 result(s) from this page"

  43. 43

    she didn't slam her. The only person I see slamming someone is you!

  44. 44

    She didn't slam her. She just said she doesn't want to constantly be compared to her.

  45. 45

    She may want to be Kurt Cobain, but she's going to wind up being Jessica Simpson with too much eyeliner.

  46. 46

    so true alanlovesyew! Forgive me Perez, but let's get real! Your claim to fame is insulting and gossiping about celebrities, so I really don't think you should can say too much…these people have talent and actually work hard to get where they are…there is no need for you to be so mean…really…

  47. 47

    What's not appropriate for a 16 year old Perez? The fact that she chooses tights over pants? She didn't say she walks around naked.

  48. 48

    One of the most annoying things is when teenaged girls try and act like guys in order to gain street-cred. Bitch, please.

  49. 49

    Taylor momsen is indeed the next kurt cobain i totally agree to that love her!


  50. 50

    she's right! besides everyone knows the only people that matter are aged 16-17

  51. 51

    I don't like this girl at all, but she didn't slam anyone.

  52. NDGuy says – reply to this


    OK, I don't really have an opinion about this girl in either a negative or positive direction, but it seems to me that she didn't even say anything insulting. She is inspired by Nirvana and not Hole. Is that a problem? Why is it so bad for someone to say that they don't think they are like another artist? It seems perfectly fine to me.

  53. 53

    perez (or whoever is writing this), you are an idiot. can you even read?

  54. 54

    what did she say wrong?

  55. 55

    tHE reason people compare you to Courtney Love sweetie is because you are both hot messes. sorry for the fyi.

  56. 56

    Everything she said seems fine to me.

  57. 57

    Mario you are a Biotch for not posting my comments. It seems if people kiss your big fat smelly Arse you post, but if someone outs you for the pig slop you are - you don't post their comments.

  58. 58

    Ok never heard one of her songs but she is on Gossip Girl but barely she seems more into her music than the show, she should stick to the show because that will make her WAY more money than her music, and Courtney Love might slam her but like anyone will be able to understand her coke filled banter. Courtney is awesome, and I suppose its ok for her to aspire to be Kurt, but I doubt it happens.

  59. 59

    The Beatles did NOT do everything first, there is a direct quote saying that they were inspired by Elvis. so technically HE did it first. She failed.

  60. 60

    Re: PrinceD
    I think Kurt would would be more pissed off about how Courtney and her relationship with Frances Bean turned out than some Gossip Girl actress "dissing" his wife.

  61. 61

    what's supposed to be inappropriate for a sixteen year old?
    Your commentary is baseless and repetitive.

  62. 62

    she is trying wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to hard to look exactly like a young courtney.

  63. 63

    I'm sorry I must have missed the part where she's slamming Courtney. Maybe I'm blind…
    & what the hell did she say that isn't "appropriate for a 16-year-old" ?

  64. 64

    i still have no idea who this little whore is, other than you are obsessed w/ her… she doesn't do anything worthwhile, so why are you reporting on her?

  65. 65

    kurt wrote all of courtneys 2nd album so how can u not look at nirvana without looking at hole its one of kurts best albums!!

  66. 66

    Taylor Momsen, just like Courtney Love herself, is a Kurt Cobain wannabe. And, really, Cobain was just a half-talented slacker whose music was geared towards a suburban teenage audience ("Smells like teen spirit", could it be more explicit?) and who couldn't ultimately deal with his sudden fame. "Kurt Cobain was a genius, dude!" Yeah, whatever!

  67. 67

    What made me laugh is I heard her saying she didnt like people copying her style and its weird when they do, but has recently joined up with New Look a UK clothing chain and released a line of clothing based on her own style, so all teenage girls can look like her.

  68. 68

    Was she even alive when Kurt was? What a child.

  69. 69

    too many words

  70. 70

    She didn't slam Love and she said nothing inappropriate. She was obviously responding to questions, and no doubt you took things out of context; it's the only talent you have, Parasite. You, Perez, are a moral zero with delusions of intelligence.

  71. 71

    Okay well…she definitely didn't "slam" Courtney, she just made the ever-so-original (*eyeroll*) declaration that she wants to be like Kurt.
    This girl needs to chill, her band isn't good (and looks like the pedophile express) and her show is hanging on by it's last Missoni thread…she should be focusing on how to improve her career and make a smart next move. Her whole vibe ("I don't really like pants, man") is so cliche and tired.

  72. 72

    You're such a douchebag, PerezHilton.

    She didn't diss Courtney Love, she just said she preferred Kurt Cobain– and who in their right mind doesn't? I'm trying to find out what makes you so obnoxious to some and so obsequious to others. I suspect it has something to do with who ignores you and who doesn't on the celeb circuit.

  73. 73

    People like Taylor is the exact reason that he killed himself. The idea of him being idolized drove him nuts. A true fan of Kurt would know this. A blonde looking for attention wouldn't.
    She should go back to listening to Brittney Spears.

  74. 74

    bless her, she hasn't got a clue has she? the beatles didn't do anything first, darling. she just sounds like a know-it-all 16 year old who thinks she's the first person in the world to look, talk and act like she does. she'll look back on this in a few years and cringe.

  75. 75

    Taylor momsen or whatever your name is don't disrespect rock and say you want to be like kurt cobain.
    and putting on eyeliner doesnt make you hardcore
    and in another interview she said "why would i want to be like Courtney Love - a heroin addict"

  76. 76

    Re: curiousred – You clearly dont know anything about music if u think this girls music/image/attitude is original

  77. 77

    Re: PurplemeetsBlue – I wish courtney would kick her ass already. Funny coz Courtney sang about rich little brats like her who are nowt but a pretty face. She wouldnt know angst if it slapped her in her gossip girl designer face. Pretentious Poser.
    Grunge is dead if people think shes grunge.
    Sorry about that rant, but as a grunge lover…it pisses me off…her pretentiousness i mean

  78. 78

    Re: AzureAngel – Id rather wrap my bedsheets around me than dress in her hooker outfits.

  79. 79

    Oh and btw, Kurt Cobain would probably die all over again if he thought the "next him" would be some blonde bimbo out of gossip girl.
    That makes Paris Hilton Axl Rose and Lindsay Lohan David Grohl right?

  80. 80

    The guy in the right looks a LOT like Brandon Lee!!!

  81. 81

    "I don't really like pants, man."
    Oh great. She's learned a new way of talking for the sake of being more hardcore.

  82. 82

    She'll never be on Courtney's level, let alone Kurt's! She really thinks she'll be the next Kurt Cobain?!? THE Kurt f*cking Cobain!?! She's delusional!

  83. 83

    perez i love u but ur rlly stupid sometimes! she didn't even say anything bad about courtney love. and what's wrong with not liking pants?! i totally understand taylor cuz i hate pants too, they make ur legs look fat.

  84. 84


  85. 85

    Lady GaGa choses not to wear pants, and you aren't trying to find her mom, Mario.

  86. 86

    Re: Emile555 – actually elvis did not do everything first. read up on your music history, i.e. chuck berry, muddy waters, jerry lee lewis.

  87. @v@ says – reply to this


    Slow news day? She didn't slam Courtney Love, who she has been compared to by some media; maybe even you. She prefers Cobain, and it matters enough to her to want to clarify that. So what.

  88. 88

    i hate everything i read about her. it's a shame, too, because she does have a really cool grungy voice and her lyrics aren't bad, but she's so god damn pretentious. she doesn't seem to realize she will never be taken seriously as an artist and never be compared to the genius of kurt cobain. especially if she keeps saying things like this.

  89. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: sarahmargeurite – She's only 16. It can be that fake it age, and look at the business she's in…

  90. 90

    Re: Failkips – lady gaga isnt fucking 16 years old u idiot.

  91. 91

    man, this fucken brat thinks she can ever be like Kurt Cobain??? shes a rich little brat who got everthing handed to her, kurt was a reject that got picked on and had a suckful life, he went thought shit she cant even dream of. just looking at her makes me want to puke. im outraged…

  92. 92

    Re: horsepuss – agreed!

  93. 93

    shes pretentious and full of herself but i hear her band arent too bad

  94. 94

    NO no no. this is all wrong! YEAH i completely understand why taylor wouldnt want to idolize Courtney Love. First of all she's crazy but other than that she would pretty much BE Courtney Love because of her style, and that doesnt make sense. BUT um WHY would ANYONE EVER say that the band HOLE is a better band to be influenced by THAN NIRVANA!! are you crazy?????? Nirvana is one of THE best bands to put out a record. Taylor I agree with you saything that you would rather look at Nirvana as a musical influence than hole. duh.

  95. 95

    Her ehem 'music' career will be gone in 2 years tops. Along with her acting career.
    She cant sing and to be a TRUE rockstar you need to actually live it not fake it. Noone from gossip girl is going to be taken seriously as a rocker.

    If she plays her cards right she'll be a big hit in years but it looks to me shes trying to be a rocker like lindsay lohan and look what happened to her? Out of work, Bad fake tan, old looking and a bad hair dye job.
