The video for Pretty Reckless' Make Me Wanna Die took a long time to be released and it's because the band's frontwoman Taylor Momsen went fully nude - and she was only 16!
"It was held up in legal for a long time because I was 16 when we shot that. We couldn't release it because, yes, I actually got naked.
It's such a complex song – and the video really reflects the song, in the way that I'd die for this person. And the point is: if you don't do something that's making you happy, you're just working through possessions and shit; you're dying with nothing anyway. So I'm stripping off my worldly possessions and giving them away. And then there's hell raining down, just cause it looks cool."
In the original concept, Taylor was stripping naked in a graveyard, but in the released version, she is covering up her junk in some lingerie.

Check out (above) the lastest trash-tastic music video from Taylor Momsen and her band, The Pretty Reckless, for the track Make Me Want To Die!
It's basically just Little J stripping down to some very age-appropriate panties - and then lighting herself on fire!
Yet again, oh so edgy, bb!
But we'll admit - we LOVE the track! And this one is better - if only slightly - than that last mess of a music video!

Jenny Humphrey, you little sneak! Under that tortured, adolescent scowl, you're not sucking with your musical endeavors!
Check out the new music video for Make Me Wanna Die, the first single from Taylor Momsen's band, The Pretty Reckless!
We still think she needs to lose the eye make-up, and her bandmates look a little too much like Charles Manson for our liking, but we must give credit where credit is due! You guys produced one solid track!
We're actually very curious to hear the rest of the album now!
Good for you, Little J!

Wow, Little J! If you stopped being too aloof to have a personality, we could really dig this!
Check out Taylor Momsen performing an acoustic version of Make Me Wanna Die with her band, The Pretty Reckless!
She actually sounds good!
Hopefully she'll get off her tortured, teenage high horse soon so we can actually start to like her!
