Taylor Momsen Smokes, Kind of Sucks

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen recently said that she doesn't care about being a role model. At least she puts her money (and cigarettes) where her mouth is.

The 16-year-old was spotted huffing away on a cigarette on the New York City set of the hot show Monday, much to the dismay of local anti-smoking activists.

"She really has an extra responsibility to bear as an actress idolized by little girls," said Patrick Reynolds, director of the Foundation for a Smoke-Free America.

"For her to be smoking sends the wrong message to kids. Evidence has shown us that stars, particularly younger ones, definitely do influence kids to smoke."

Not that Momsen f--king cares. She recently told the UK's Times about being a role model, "To be honest, I don't f--king care." A consistent message, anyway.

We get that she doesn't care about being a role model, and she is right when she says it's not her job. But still, there is a certain level of responsibility, right?

wow shes such a whore, she not famous, never was famous, and never will be famous:) reality check! and as for smoking, shes just another hollywood bitch that needs to get over herself! let her chose how she wants to RUIN HER LIFE, well actually, its kind of too late for that:) I think she really has no potential as an actress, and if u act, singing is kind of a given. She will just be another one hit, or probably not hit wonder. She puts off such a trashy vibe. Hate her, always have always will!:) God, i just wanna slap some sense into that girl. Go buy yourself some some clothes:)

Who cares if she smokes or not, once her skin starts getting patchy and she gets cancer, or better yet, how cool will the kids think she'll be if she has to smoke through a hole in her throat. Hilarious! I'm just wondering why the law enforcement of California are so useless? All these celebrities are shown breaking the law everyday, there is photographic evidence. Yet, nothing! Let a 16 year old illegally purchase cigarettes, let a store owner illegally sell an underaged person cigarettes, and it should be ok. But if a non-famous person does it, you're in trouble! I hate the double standard for the rich vs. the average person in California, I'm so glad I don't live in the states. And I don't understand why it's citizens don't give a shit that they're substandard humans in the eyes of the law there.

the little girls who 'look up to her' are not stupid. They are not gonna start drugs or wear next to nothing just because a celebrity they like is doing it

She made the decision to become a role model the day she decided to become an actress. Even if she doesn't want to be a role model, kids are still going to look up to her and see her that way.
People in the public eye hold this kind of responsibility and it's childish to say otherwise.
