Taylor Momsen: Rihanna Isn't "Rock"

Taylor Momsen: Rihanna Isn't

Taylor Momsen is not a fan of Rihanna's choice of outerwear. In the new issue of Spin magazine, the Gossip Girl star and Pretty Reckless singer says the word "rock" is losing it sacred toughness - and Rihanna is partly to blame.

People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna's wearing f****** leather jackets, and it's really annoying.

Meow! Let's hope these leather-loving ladies don't bump into each other any time soon.

Who wears her leather jackets better -- Taylor or Rihanna? Give us your opinion in the comments.

    Even though she's a trashy slut, she has a point. Rihanna is one of the BIGGEST posers in the music undustry and it's a pain in the ass people saying how f*cking "edgy" and "rockstar-ish" she is. And Rihanna HAS been quoted to say she is a rockstar, she also said in Teen Vogue she wants to be a black Madonna so she looks to GaGa for inspiration. I think the the girl has gotten totally generic and I no longer have any respect for her. Someone shoot her. And the Kardashians. :D

    LMFAOOOOO WAIT..So leather jackets make you a rock? So i guess Beyonce, Janet Jackson, and Britney spears are rock too? cause theyve worn leather. Taylor little girl take a SEAT. Your not even rick your damns elf. Your just a hungry lookin wanna be. FUK UP ***

    actually, she probably means that Rihanna is trying to act like a Rocker, hence her song "Rockstar101" everyone seems to think that if a band can play 2 chords they're rock stars. It's pathetic, try going back to rocks roots, Kiss, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, THATS f*cking rock. Not this corny Rihanna and Lil Wayne sh*t trying to play the electric guitar. they're pathetic.

    If you wear a leather jacket, it makes you look rock? Since when? I've seen many pop singers wear leather jackets. Who does she think she is saying that kind of bull crap about Rhianna? Taylor acts all hard and crap with her look and smoky eye shadow..Taylor is very unbelievably pathetic. By the way Taylor, Madonna wears leather but she sings pop and dance..are you gonna tell her she's not rock? Taylor, shut the Hell up..you're lame and retarded.

    I don't know who this trashy Taylor is, but I don't think rock is garter belts and fishnets that is more like stripper. Where the hell are this girls parents? If I were Taylor I wouldn't throw stones when you look like that!

    Rihanna's style is cool, and I don't think the real problem is her style. Its the fact that so many people can't tell what rock is anymore because so many pop artist are trying to incorperate that sound into thier music. She was just using Rihanna as an example. It annoys me too. But Taylor really needs to stop with bashing on other artist, what she says is true, but its just kinda annoying that rudeness is a part of her personality. Oh and I wanted to apologize for mt terrible lettering in my first comment.

    Miley Cyrus is NOT A ROCK STAR. This is what is wrong with kids today, they don't know sh*t about music. That's what she's saying, that Rihanna is as much a rock star as Miley, meaning that they both are very pop, music wise.

    Taylor is a attention seeking whore lately. She needs to act more mature. She's been bashing a lot of people to get some sort of point across. She's just trying to be all bad ass criticizing others for no valid reason. Grow up girl, you're wasting your time creating negative attention.

    i agree with her! everyone is missing the word "rock" Agreed! Also RIhanna has a song "rockstar" BUt she sings pop! I'm tired of people like Rihanna, MIley Cyrus, LAdy Gaga thinking they're rock, when they are typical pop stars! People can't stand Taylor because she speaks the truth.

  • wtf??
    wtf??

    Hey -- and Taylor Momsen isn't talented and is fairly irrelevant - so who cares? I think its hilarious how she likes to play this "I'm a bad ass rocker chick and I can swear and talk about vibrators". Oh - that really makes you tough - doesn't it? Pathetic - yes. Tough - God no!! The day she comes every CLOSE to the kind of success that Rihanna has will be the day that anyone will take her semi-seriously. Not to worry people - not going to happen. She is so funny to laugh at though.......

    Also don't be stupid, Taylor is not just talking about random leather jackets, she's talking about people emulating the rock life style only through appearance. People can wear whatever they want but Rihanna is neither rock or a rebel, she's her record labels puppet doing whatever she needs to do to remain relevant, as is evidenced by her MASSIVE change in sound and look from her first 2 albums til now. Taylor can be annoying and probably is also a puppet but her music is better IMO.

  • guest
    guest

    Taylor is only stating the obvious, lest not forget miss rihanna also flips the sign of the horns but everyone does. That's why Taylor is correct. BTW Taylor's not saying SHE thinks rihanna is rock because of the leather jacket, she's saying RIHANNA ( and some of her fans) think she is rock because she wears the leather jacket.

  • Angel

    it's true even in pop songs they're saying "ROCKSTAR" and i"m like WTF?! I Am a Pop and hip-hop person but I'm just saying that I agree with her comment about rock losing it's meaning and some people are to blame not just rihanna. As for the Leather jackets it doesn't only have to be punk/rock or whatever people who can wear them. Leather is also Hip-hop

    Why are you all getting all riled up with what this talentless little jealous hag has to say. She will never achieve the level of success Rihana had nor will she even come near an inch of the fame that her idol Kurt Corbain had accomplished. This little twerp is literally and figuratively dripping with envy. By the way I heard that The Material Girl designer clothes that Madonna built for her daughter Lourdez is not selling at all Because employing this try-hard-wannabe-rock star to model it scared the mothers of the prepubescent teenager to dress their daughters like her . As a mother I can understand that because they want their daughters to be socially acceptable to society and not get beat up and rape by bullies.

    Who says you have to be "rock" to wear a f*cking leather jacket. Rihanna's music isn't "rock music" but, she has every right to wear whatever the hell she wants, no mater what Taylor f*cking Momsen has to say about it.

  • A.
    A.

    she's totally right. i am not a fan of her, and i don't really like rihanna either, but i listen to tm's songs a lot, because they are really cool. because i prefer rock too. and it's f******* annoying that a lot of teens think that pop music is rock. and not just because of rihanna, but hannah montana, jonas brothers and camp ROCK too =D when jonas brothers say they play rock, and when someone on hm says "yes that's real rock", well that's ridiculous..... rihanna is just an example. but she's absolutely right.

  • vespo
    vespo

    Well, that's what Taylor thinks because her whole "rock" band is based on clothing and black makeup, not substance. She's a huge hypocrite, she's so edgy and dark but she models for Madonna's new line. STFU!

  • reneelucky7
    reneelucky7

    Being "Rock" is a state of mind- not just a look. Rihanna has a "rock star" attitude. It's an attitude that is already apart of that artist personality. Wearing a leather jacket does not make you rock; Not caring what others say and not taking sh*t from people does.

  • reneelucky7
    reneelucky7

    shes right... like rihanna shouldnt think shes a rock star. that's like saying miley cyrus is a rock star.have u heard taylor's music?that's real rock. Miley Cyrus is NOT A ROCK STAR. This is what is wrong with kids today, they don't know sh*t about music.

  • Kat.

    I just think people are getting a little sensitive. Rihanna isn't rock. The whole point that Taylor is trying to make, is that Rihanna is trying to turn her genre into something it isn't. But her style is her choice. We never leave high school behind. Haha.

  • Eric

    OMG! I swear if this girl does not shut the hell up I'm gonna go insane! All she ever does and come out and bash other artists. Stop paying so much attention to what other people are doing and start focusing on your career because it's about over. Your music career is going nowhere and Gossip Girl isn't gonna last forever. Ugghh she irritates the crap out of me! Rihanna doesn't claim to sing rock music. Until she does come out and say she sings rock, then Taylor can just shut her mouth. Somebody needs to put this girl in her place because she's an obnoxious little b!tch who needs to get over herself!

  • An Old Rihanna Lover

    I think Taylor is damn right. Rihanna was always a sweet nice r&b girl but now she's just some other bitch who's tryin to act like the producers want her to. She really lost herself after the Chris Brown-accident. I think he slammed every tiny bit R&B out her. And for all those ppl who say that ''she can wear leather blablash*t''. That's really bullsh*t. Because I think Taylors point is that Rihanna has changed in a very awkward way and not a good one. She's not herself, if you know what I mean. For example, listen to her first album Music Of The Sun. And then listen to her last album. Then you'll understand what I'm sayin. But seriously even if you look at just her album names you can see she's changed SO SO SO SO (actually waaaaaay too) MUCH. I think it's really weird how a nice sweet sunkissed caribbean girl can change in a shortcuthaired fake rocker/punker. It's like she's toughened up a little too much. Here all her albums then you'll know : Music Of The Sun A Girl Like Me Good Girl Gone Bad Rated R etccc... Get it?

    another thing i have to say. everyone in the music industry wears leather jackets. run dmc wore leather jackets in the 80s, michael jackson wore a leather jacket in beat it and thriller. i think madonna wore leather jackets in the 80s, i'm not sure.

    Gah, Taylor needs to shut up. SHE'S the wannabe, it's not like she's some amazingly talented rocker and she needs to stop thinking she's so hardcore. I've heard some of her music- I'd rather Rihanna, and I'm not even usually into that style. At least Rihanna pulls off her outfits- Taylor just looks like a sl**.

    1. The Rihanna song is just a song. Rihanna 'rocks' her clothes and some confidence. Taylor sounds like a whiny high school kid complaining about 'posers'. 2. Taylor looks way too manicured in these photos to even talk about things as if she, herself, embodies 'rock'. 3. You can't blame the evolution of music and what appeals to the majority on one person/artist. There's a lot of meshing of rock/pop/hip hop/rap these days. Even country/pop/rock It just is what it is. Get over it. 4. I am so very tired of music/ fashion elitists and the whole elitist attitude in general. Almost anything goes these days. Stop trying to label yourselves. (Identity crisis alert) I personally love all kinds of music and I respect the artists that release what they like/love/feel.

  • Kelly

    Oh my gosh, someone tell Taylor to shut the f*ck up! Nobody gives a sh*t about her opinions on other people. Leather jackets are a fashion statement, it has nothing to do with music genres. She needs to go play in busy traffic.

  • bvoris

    Taylor Momsen is only about 16 years old, so I don't understand where she gets her fashion street cred. She dresses like an unemployed hooker in most of the photos I've ever seen of her and I don't think that is "rock" either. If they sell leather jackets at Forever 21 and other mass market shops, how can she think that associating someone to rock music for wearing one is going to prove any sort of point? I've also seen her in a prom dress spread for a prom magazine so I don't think she should be riding her high horse all over town about how rock n roll she is.

  • naomi
    naomi

    how can she put the blame on one person? i kind of lost a little respect for her now after this. besides, rockstart 101 is JUST A SONG PEOPLE!!! taylor's making it seem like rihanna's the only one that wears leather jackets. there ARE other stars that wear or have worn leather jackets.not everyone thinks that pop is rock.they think pop is pop and rock is rock. to be honest, today's rock is kind of stupid. most of today's pop kind of sounds the same. i mean, taylor's a year older than me, but her attitude stinks. she comes off as rude and that's why some people don't like her. i like her songs, but she needs to fix her attitude.
