Taylor Momsen’s Rihanna Rock 'n' Back-Peddle

| Filed under: RihannaTaylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen is in the business of saying inconsistent dumb shit.

During an interview, Taylor was called out on describing Rihanna as a “rock wannabe.”

Taylor said that she was misquoted and then started to back-peddle:

“[I was] arguing the difference between rock vs. pop, and that it’s a very pop-oriented world at the moment, and that there is no rock. And people that dress [like rock stars] and have guitars in their music — that’s the closest thing audiences have to rock right now, and we’re looking to bring back a real rock band. I wasn’t insulting Rihanna. Rihanna’s great.”

Hmm… It seems like a real rock star wouldn’t back down on what they said about someone. Also, implying that you are the only “real rock band” out there is a little presumptuous. Why don’t you run that by…oh, I don’t know, ANY rock band in the world and see what their reaction is!

Rock n’ roll is a gritty, Taylor, so don’t back down on what you say!

  1. 1

    she's right…Rihanna is great….but there is nothing rock about her



  2. 2

    Hate to say it but I kind of agree with what she's getting at… Rockstar 101 is the shit but Rihanna, rock? Far from in my opinion.



  3. 3

    She's a pretty girl, she needs to stop with the raccoon make up. She's looking all kinds of stupid.



  4. 4

    What an hypocritical dumbass.



  5. 5

    You are retarded. Don't try to act like you know what rock n roll is.



  6. 6

    I do agree with her. Rihanna is not pop, and her dressing up as Slash while wobbling a guitar in her video for Rockstar 101 (which is shit btw) is just too ridiculous and fake.



  7. 7

    Well… Rihanna is not 'rock'…



  8. 8

    Who give a shyt about this trailer trash blonde hooker…Although I am not a Rihanna fan you never see or hear her bashing anyone in her interviews. I like that about her



  9. 9

    Taylor did NOT back-peddle. She said Rihanna is great. She did NOT say that Rihanna is rock, because she isn't. Rihanna is as pop as they get.



  10. 10

    Mario, can you even name a rock band in the world?



  11. 11

    Dummy.



  12. 12

    Uh… I totally and 100% agree with her. Whats your problem Perez?



  13. 13

    STFU perez i love taylor and her music.



  14. 14

    I think she´s just a confused teen. Come on! Look how she dressed one year ago…. She´s trying to grow too fast…. that poor child….she´s so pathetic



  15. 15

    she's full of shit and herself. And her band is shit rock, and I use the term rock loosely



  16. 16

    with kids like this, the future of the world is doomed. DOOMED !



  17. 17

    shes an actress for gossip girl.. what the hell does she know about rock.



  18. 18

    I agree with her on the fact that Rihanna is NOT a Rock star…. but thats not a bad thing… and that doesnt mean she cant wear leather…. dumb dumb dumb!! Taylor Mumsen is just to young and delusional ppl take her too serious…



  19. 19

    she wasn't backing down, i watched that interview and they made up the 'rock wannabe' quote and said that she likes rihanna. get your facts right perez.



  20. 20

    She may be young and dumb but this time she's completely right.



  21. 21

    Who cares what this dimwit says. Why is she even relevent?



  22. 22

    Yeah Racoon eyes is pretty hardcore! GTFO of here this bitch has nothing to do with rock and roll



  23. 23

    The only thing more obnoxious than Taylor trying to talk about rock is this site's writers trying to do the same thing.



  24. 24

    I love her "I don't give a f*ck" attitude, but sometimes she goes a little bit too far…



  25. 25

    rihanna is not a rock star, shes 100% pop music .. taylor has a point but there are some really great rock bands out there, their not extinct..their just not in the spotlight in hollywood which is all about sugar coated pop music :(



  26. 26

    That doesn't sound like back peddling, it sounds like she's having to spell out the situation more clearly for retards like Mario who want to twist her words.



  27. 27

    What a clown. She knows dick about rock n roll. rofl



  28. 28

    SHE HAS A POINT, PEREZ. YOU'RE GETTING PRETTY ANNOYING WITH YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON TAYLOR MOMSEN. I MEAN, SHE'S RIGHT. MILEY, RIHANNA AND ALL THESE POPSTARS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ROCK. THEY SHINE AT WHAT THEY DO, BUT IT'S NOT ROCK SO WHY DO THEY CALL THEMSELVES "ROCKSTARS"? TAYLOR MOMSEN IS ALSO GREAT AT WHAT SHE DOES. DO PEOPLE HATE HER BECAUSE SHE'S DIFFERENT? SHE'S A ROCKER. ROCKERS ROCK, AND ESPECIALLY HER.

    WE LOVE YOU TAYLOR! WHO'S WITH ME?



  29. 29

    i imagine that her band probably is the only rock band in her little world, but if she opens her eyes and gets her head out of her know-it-all ass, she'll realise that there's thousands of "real" rock bands out there who are having to work a lot harder than she is and making much better music in the process.



  30. 30

    Well, she's right. Rhianna isn't Rock and Roll. I don't know if she ever claimed to be, but still in all. Secondly "Rock N Roll is "A" gritty?" a gritty what?



  31. 31

    Mario she's totally right and stop causing shit you moron



  32. 32

    There's plenty of amazing rock out there now—just not on MTV!

    stfu taylor momsen. no one cares about what you do with you "rock" band and your "non-conforming" ways



  35. 35

    SHE'S A KID!!!! WHY do you insist on ripping into her EVERY chance you get, Mario?!?! Are you scared to pick on the adults, because they can/will/have kick(ed) you ass?!?! Why don't you go back to reading up on REAL stories and TRY posting on them–less than 3 weeks after everyone else has!!!



  36. 36

    I'm tired of being subjected to this vapid bitch's opinions.



  38. 38

    pfff… Taylor Momsen IS the wannabe…

    I love Taylor. We know she is naturally pretty, the makeup, get over it.
    I love that cocaine addict and her real rock music.
    Rihanna sucks.



  40. 40

    Not this dumb ugly wannabe again.



  41. 41

    Perez, what is your deal with this chick? The girl has a great voice and makes good music. She never said they were the only real rock band out there. She said "we’re looking to bring back a real rock band." Implying she wants to bring it back into style, as it once was. Tell me the last time a rock band topped the hot 100's. Than tell me what she is saying is total bogus. She has a VERY valid point. Sadly, rock music probably won't come back into style unless they resort to a modern form of dance/rock music, dancing in their videos & having really hot people in their band. All while making good up-tempo music….. or something like that. But, she's correct!



  42. 42

    I think she believes in the spirit of rock and roll in the old school sense, and she's just trying to bring that spirit back into today's music. What is rock and roll these days? Where are the female rock stars? Pink can rock, but she really isn't rock. There's really no equivalent of Heart or Joan Jett in acts under 30, hell even under 40, these days, and if there are, they aren't appealing to the mainstream. If Taylor want to do and be that, more power to her.
    That aside, Perez, or whoever is writing for you these days…Really no need to get so sanctimonious about it. She never said she's the only rock band out there.



  43. 43

    if she's bring "rock" back, this is worse than the situation making 5 mil. let him have it.

  44. @v@ says – reply to this


    44

    She's clarifying her comment, not so much doing a back pedal. (it's not spelled back peddle. Dictionary.com is your friend.)



  45. 45

    Dear Christ! She's barely out of high school and she thinks she's like some musical know-all when in reality she's an attention seeking, angry little brat with no concept of life outside of her own self-adoration! Vile cretin!



  46. 46

    how's this raccoon trying to bring rock back? she is a pop singer. not rock. pop. and wtf, rock is not dead. it's still out there going strong, it's just that the vast majority of today's teens would rather listen to shitty pop.



  47. 47

    This girl is the biggest loser…. she thinks she's creating a "rock band" does she even play an instrument? I guarantee her music is just as produced as Britany Spears or Rhianna or anyone else on KISS 108 where her music will be played (if at all) … She actually tried to compare herself to Kurt Cobain in an interview once… I'm sure she has such as dark and troubled life playing a rich school girl on a CW tv show… appreciate where your talent really is… if you really thought you were an alternative rocker you would never do such a cliche and commercial thing like that



  48. 48

    the only lie here is her saying rihanna's great haha what a joke!



  49. 49

    hahahahah taylor thinks she's real rock?! what a dumbass.
