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?

All I can say is who would want this foul mouthed, cigarette smoking girl as a role model?? Just her attitude alone sucks. I never talked like that when I was her age. She already has turned me off. I do believe that when you become famous, you do have to understand that being watched and admired comes with the territory. If you really care about your fans, you would act like a lady etc. So I think by the way she's talking, she doesn't give a darn about the fans. So parents need to talk to their kids and tell them what is right and what is wrong. Parents are the key here.

"But still, there is a certain level of responsibility, right?" Wrong It should be her choice and her business. What about all the other so called role models such as Politicians /Lindsay Lohan / Rock bands etc. I have seen much worse behavior than this young ladies. After all is said and done who put her on this pedestal? The people did right. Based on the current trend America seems to reward bad behavior just look at all the bail outs and bonuses being handed out.
