Gossip Girl star and aspiring rock star Taylor Momsen turns 17 today.

Yes, still underage ... and she could not give a f*%k what you think!

The brash youngster has always been a bit of a lightning rod for controversy, but has really gone haywire in recent weeks, instigating a feud with Miley Cyrus.

Going out of her way to bash the pop star and Disney genre, Momsen made it clear that she speaks her immature mind and doesn't mind burning bridges.

There's also a separate buzz brewing over her racy new music video and whether any 16-year-old with a sense of decency should writhe around like that.

Hey, at least she's 17 now! Happy birthday, Taylor!

Taylor Momsen: From Little Jenny Humphrey to Pretty Reckless frontwoman.

Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen may pretend as if they're especially mature 16 and 17-year olds, but at the end of the day, it's clear: they're just like any two feuding teenage girls.

It all started a couple weeks ago, when the Gossip Girl actress and The Pretty Reckless frontwoman implied that Miley was part of "Disney bubblegum shit" taking over the airwaves and said she was sick of comparisons between the pair.

Miley Strolls

In response to those comments, a source tells Heat magazine "Miley is furious." He added:

"She thought Taylor was pretty cool until this happened, which has left her totally confused. Taylor is so obviously desperate for fame. I mean, she's traipsing around town in her underwear, or is that for the love of the music too?"

Wait... did someone close to Miley Cyrus just accuse another artist of dressing scantily in order to make headlines? Excuse us while we laugh hysterically over such hypocrisy....

Perhaps Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen should both put clothes on and shut up.

This insider believes "Miley has always had a lot of talent, and Taylor knows it. Taylor still sees her as a threat, which she is, although they're hardly in the same league."

It's difficult to take a side in this battle of underdressed, oversexed, self-centered singers. But Miley has spoken out often over the last year, expressing her disdain for musicals, vampires and other pop culture favorites. Her defenders always say to leave the girl alone, she's allowed to speak her mind.

Does the same standard apply to Momsen?

Take a side in this feud:

Taylor Momsen says she's not Miley f'ing Cyrus.

The two seem to have a similar urge to let their inner bad girls loose, however. Like the Hannah Montana pioneer, this is one Gossip Girl star who can't be tamed!

Taylor's band, The Pretty Reckless, just released a music video for their song "Miss Nothing," and, like Miley, she's already being criticized for being too risque.

She's 16 going on 17 (Monday), but she looks like she's 16 going on 30 in this video, which can be unintentionally funny, edgy, lame and sexy at the same time.

Okay, nix that last part. It's not sexy. Sixteen. So wrong. We're curious to hear what you think, though. Check out the "Miss Nothing" video below and vote in our poll:

What do you think of Taylor Momsen's new video? Too racy?

Miley Cyrus may be a colossal disappointment for a variety of reasons, but at least she doesn't curse, smoke or look like a raccoon at all times.

The same can't be said for Gossip Girl cast member Taylor Momsen.

Speaking to FHM UK this week, the 16-year old lashed out at critics that compare her to Miley, making it very clear that she doesn't see any similarities between the pair.

"I'm not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus," Momsen said. "I don't care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we'll go along for the ride."

  • Miles in Concert

Momsen and Cyrus may both act and sing, but that's pretty much where the comparisons end. The former fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless, while the latter is nothing more than a Britney Spears wannabe at this point.

Still, Taylor feels a need to distance herself from Miley, adding: "I think the Disney bubblegum shit that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression."

It's unclear what that actually means, but Gossip Girl fans have made their opinion of Momsen and her character well-known: Jenny Humphrey has been written out of most of next season on the show.

Good riddance.

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.

Momsen Live

"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?

Whether she's acting indifferent to Haiti earthquake relief, calling out Lindsay Lohan or not giving a f*%k about being a role model, Taylor Momsen does not hold back.

Gossip Girl spoiler alert: The 16-year-old is kind of brat!

In Britain’s Times Online, she discusses being a role model. "To be honest, I really don't f---ing care," the actress/model said. "I didn't get into this to be a role model."

Okay then!

"So I'm sorry if I'm influencing your kids in a way that you don't like," she politely adds. "But I can't be responsible for their actions, and I don't care."

Momsen

The many looks of Taylor Momsen, 16 going on 36.

Also of note, Taylor "exclusively hangs out with people older than her" and gets to wear so much cool, expensive designer fashion as a result. Whoop dee doo!

Fun fact about Momsen: She was in the final three choices for Hannah Montana back in the day. She lost out to Miley Cyrus, natch, but she's cool with it now.

Taylor is waaaaay too cool for that anyway.

"Honestly, if I'd have ended up as Hannah Montana, I don't know if the show would have gone as well," she laughs. "I probably would have told them all to go f--- themselves by the time I hit 11. Don't know how that would have gone down."

Spoken like a true class act.

Taylor Momsen stars on Gossip Girl as angst-riddled teenager Jenny Humphrey, a 16-year-old aspiring to rule high school and be a fashion designer one day.

In real life, she's a 16-year-old actress, model, rock musician and now a business mogul: TM has partaken in the racket that is celebrity perfume production!

The name of her signature scent: Love Rocks.

She'd better hope Courtney Love doesn't hear about this. For one, she assume it's named after her. Second, she already hates Taylor for bogarting her style.

Supposedly. It's Courtney Love. We wouldn't sweat it if we were the Gossip Girl star. Woman hates her own daughter. Here's Taylor at her fragrance launch:

Would you want to smell like Taylor Momsen?

She doesn't wanna be compared to Lindsay Lohan, and that's fine. Taylor Momsen has no DUI arrests and her career is on its ascent. But watch out, girl. Just saying.

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.

In 2009, we scoffed at Taylor Momsen's resemblance to a raccoon.

We mocked Miley Cyrus for... everything she did.

We bowed in awe at the talents and success of Taylor Swift.

But while this trio of young beauties may seem as different as the seasons, they all followed one fashion trend in 2009: the donning of lace tights.

Below, the self-absorbed 17-year old; award-winning singer; and Gossip Girl star all show off this look. What do you think of it?

Lace tights

Do you like lace tights?

When cornered by the celebrity gossip media, Britney Spears' response used to be to show off her ... well, her "Britney." If you know what we mean.

Well, Taylor Momsen of Gossip Girl had a different reaction recently. Showcasing her ridiculous moves, she left a horde of paparazzi eating her dust.

Who knew that the 15-year-old actress and model was also a part-time Iron Man ... woman. Girl. Whatever. Here's Taylor absolutely owning peeps ...
