Taylor Momsen: Don't Call Me Lindsay Lohan!

by at . Comments

All Taylor Momsen wants to be taken seriously. And a music career. And to be treated like she's not 16. And not to be compared to Lindsay Lohan.

Although the 16-year-old Gossip Girl cast member has an edgy, beyond-her-years look, she resents any comparisons to another former child star.

"I get such a bad rap for being like Lindsay Lohan," Momsen says in the February issue of Seventeen, denying that she has train wreck qualities.

"I hate naming names because she's really sweet, but I don't go out. I have no desire to be some party girl. I'm a loner. I always have been."

But the actress, who made her big Hollywood debut in 2000's How the Grinch Stole Christmas, does embrace her reputation as an "angsty" teen.

"I'll be angsty until I'm 80 years old," she says. "I think it keeps things fresh. But I think that angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers."

"It just means you're figuring sh!t out."

In addition to acting, Taylor fronts the punk-rock band The Pretty Reckless. She complains that "people don't take me seriously" because of her age.

She's different than people her age, she insists.

"[People] think most 16-year-olds don't know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I've been thinking about [music] since I was 2."

Don't worry, Taylor. Soon you'll be 17 ... and you can then be compared to another 17-year-old who knows just what she wants: Miley Cyrus.


[apologies in advance for the law oscohl bit of me creeping out in this post.]From the statement you quoted, I think that's a logical leap to conclude that she is saying/thinking that 1 gender + 1 person is a characterization of her lifetime of sexual preference:1) probably she's not even asserting certainty in the statement.2) next in a sequence, it does not mean that all subsequent items will be of a certain sort, just the one that immediately follows.3) been like next, but the other way around. She's saying up to this point it's just been Sam Ronson but that's not indicative of the future. She's not saying I'll never be attracted to another woman or She's the only woman I'll ever be attracted to. We can agree, though, that WE would have been pleased to see a clearer affirmation of bisexuality (and as a pre-req for that, for Lilo to know/hold that as true, of course). As it stands, I still see much gray area, which means a lot to play around with. 0


A 15 kg child sits on the edge of at 2 m radius, 200 kg merry go round. A htafer as been getting a little carried away and has pushed it up to a tangential velocity of 8.0 m/s. With no harm being done, the child jumps off with a tangential velocity of -8.0 m/s so that he lands straight in the arms of his htafer (effectively giving him no angular momentum). What is the final angular velocity of the merry go round?
