Similar to Taylor Momsen, I’m done picking on Miley Cyrus. TMZ obtained a disturbing video of her smoking from a bong, though her representatives insist it was salvia and not marijuana. I’m not going to waste my time explaining the difference. I found the video particularly disturbing because it looks like the person taping her intended to use the footage at a later date. I might be reading too much Sherlock Holmes, but she kept the video on Miley the entire time, and also insisted that she wasn’t “fucked up enough.” Usually when I’m filming at a party and someone says, “hey what’s that over there,” I move the camera to reflect what’s being discussed.” Perhaps I wouldn’t move the camera if my cash-cow was high though. Additionally, I’m convinced that this is the tip of the iceberg, and Miley Cyrus will soon join Lindsay Lohan in rehab. Billy Ray Cyrus also saw the video, and released a statement, saying, “sorry guys. I had no idea. Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. I’m so sad. There is much beyond my control right now.” If Billy Ray is reading this, I’m sorry. I really thought she would come out unscathed.
I’ve officially moved Taylor Momsen from the celebrity-bad-behavior category to the celebrity-mentally-disturbed category. What does that mean? It means I’m done picking on her. There was a time when Britney Spears was mentally unstable and I also felt sorry for her, instead of rooting for her downfall. That’s the only explanation for Momsen’s picture on the cover of Revolver Magazine, and I therefore think it’s time for the press to back-off and let her begin a recovery process. It’s no fun throwing tomatoes at the nutty chick (at least not in Dishmaster land). I just don’t understand why people are still giving Taylor Momsen paychecks, especially the folks over at The CW, who continue to employ her on Gossip Girl. And the Revolver folks should be ashamed of themselves for preying on the mental instability of a 17 year old girl. I also think that Britney Spears’ father should call Momsen’s parents to instruct them on how to get their daughter back on track. To see the cover, click below.
I often take some time out of my very busy blogging life to attack Taylor Momsen. But this time around, Tim Gunn did my dirty work. Gunn filmed a cameo for The CW’s Gossip Girl, and finally exposed what many Gossip Girl fans have been speculating all along — Taylor Momsen sucks. According to Gunn, Momsen could not remember her minimal lines, which held the cast and crew “hostage.” He also revealed that the director confided in him how terrible it is to work with Momsen, saying with disdain, “this is day in, day out, of my life.” When The CW chucked Momsen last season, I assumed her option was not renewed, and she was gone for good. For some incomprehensible reason, the network has decided to resurrect her from the dead, so that she can return to television to mumble her lines in an excessively tweaked out fashion. I can’t wait.
Gossip Girl Executive Producer Stephanie Savage sat down with Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly to discuss the shocking season finale. When asked if it was Taylor Momsen’s tears or Jenny Humphrey’s, Savage confirmed that it was Momsen’s real tears. “That’s what it really looks like if a girl with raccoon eyes cries that much,” she said. “There was nothing we could do.” She also confirmed that Momsen would return to the show at some unspecified point. Ausiello didn’t ask the one plaguing question though: was it a creative or personal decision to write Jenny Humphrey off the show? I’m guessing that they kicked her out to give her some time to get her life together, as she looks extremely emaciated and out of it on the show lately. I could be wrong though. I’ve attached an older picture of Taylor Momsen so you can get a feel for the “before and after” I keep referencing.
