Taylor Momsen Fires Back at Tim Gunn … Kinda

Attention, Tim Gunn; Taylor Momsen has no time for your acid-tongued criticism.

Project Runway fashion guru Gunn—who recently filmed a guest spot for Momsen’s hit show Gossip Girlwent on record about his experience working with Momsen on the show earlier this month, calling her a pathetic “brat” who was more interested in fiddling with her BlackBerry than memorizing her lines.  But if the 17-year-old actress-turned-rocker was wounded by Gunn’s critique, she sure isn’t letting on.

Questioned about Gunn’s attack at the launch of the Material Girl clothing line at Macy’s in New York on Wednesday night, Momsen sniffed,

“I don’t respond to that.”

Wise choice, Taylor; sometimes, silence really is golden.

The “Make Me Wanna Die” singer did, however, have something to say about her detractors in general:

“It’s about owning it no matter what anyone says. This is who I am and this is who I am going to be. It’s about every girl being true to themselves.”

A rather mature perspective, for a so-called “brat.”

Do you think that Momsen handled the Gunn controversy properly? Let us know in the comments section.
