Taylor Momsen Talks Tampons and Vibrators, Says ‘Justin Who?’

Say what you will about Taylor Momsen; she gets props for honesty and frankness.

The Gossip Girl actress—who’s preparing to release her debut album, Light Me Up, with her band The Pretty Reckless—recently granted an interview to New Zealand radio program The Edge Nightshow, and she greeted hosts Brad and Sharyn’s questions with the candor most have come to expect from the 17-year-old. Read below for choice snippets from the interview:

On her song “Goin’ Down” and the Catholic church’s sexual abuse scandal: “I was raised Catholic—I f*cked a priest once. Just kidding.”

On the constant media coverage and those upskirt photos that recently made the rounds on the Web: “I don’t take [any of the stories about me] to heart; I just look at it this way: My f*cking tampon’s on the godd*mn Internet.”

On young fans seeing her as a role model: “The reality of it is, you don’t know me. You’re not in my living room. You’re not on my tour bus…It’s cool to look up to people and think that they’re cool, but be who you are.”

On calling her vibrator her best friend: “It doesn’t talk back to me, so it’s really not a best friend…I think women should equally be allowed to pleasure themselves as much as men…It’s frustrating; I’m not a whore masturbating, so f*ck you if you call me one.”

On Justin Bieber—whoever he is: “I don’t know who Justin Bieber is. I only know his name because it keeps being brought up to me. I listen to Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, so I have no idea who he is. That’s not a dis; I just don’t know.”
