Why Taylor Momsen Wears Such Skimpy Clothes

She may not be the new Miley Cyrus but Gossip Girl’s resident bad girl Taylor Momsen loves to dress provocatively, even if it is for a very strange reason.

In a recent interview with Nylon magazine (via oceanUP) Taylor reveals her penchant for being an provocateur:

I dress ‘scantily clad’ because people think it’s scary [laughs]. It’s either there’s nothing put into it and I wear whatever is on my floor and is clean, or it’s thought out and inspired by how I’m feeling and what I’m listening to at the moment.

The 16-year-old star must be listening to a lot of burlesque music because she rarely seems to leave the house without wearing something dangerously skimpy.

As for her new record with The Pretty Reckless, Taylor says that she is proud of the record and doesn’t care what anyone else things:

It’s something I’ve wanted to accomplish my whole life. Not to just make a record, but a great record that I’m really proud of and to sing for the rest of my life and not have to f***ing worry, know what I mean? Even if people don’t like it, I like it and I’m proud of it.

Well, it is always good to stand by your music.
