Taylor Momsen ‘Was A Bad Influence’ On Lourdes

Taylor Momsen has opened up about working with Madonna on her Material Girl clothing range, revealing she was a “bad influence” on the singer’s daughter Lourdes.

The Gossip Girl star became pals with the 14 year old when she signed on as the face of the label last year (10).  In an interview with British magazine Grazia, the singer/actress is asked whether she felt her provocative persona had an impact on the youngster, and she replies,

“I probably am a bad influence.”

Momsen, 17, also admits she worries about younger girls trying to copy her controversial image.
She adds,

“The other day, this reporter brought his 12-year-old daughter to an interview. She was looking at me open-mouthed, like: ‘I want stripper shoes, Daddy!’ He hated me! But I’m not saying, ‘Be like me.’ I hope girls read what I say in interviews – they should just be themselves.

“They wouldn’t want to be like me. I’m crazy. I’m f**king out of my mind. I’ve been told I was out of my mind since I was 11.”

Taylor Momsen’s Parents Hurt By Interview

Taylor Momsen was forced to apologise to her parents for comments she made in a recent interview, in which she appeared to blame them for pushing her into the spotlight when she was a toddler.

The Pretty Reckless star appeared to slam her mum and dad for forcing her to become a model when she was just two years old, revealing in a candid chat,

“No two year old wants to be working, but I had no choice… I didn’t have friends. I was working constantly and I didn’t have a real life.”

But Momsen insists her remarks were taken out of context in the interview, and she’s grateful for her parents’ early encouragement – because she loves her life as a singer/actress now.  Momsen tells Britain’s Kerrang! magazine,

“(After reading the article, they felt) horrible! I love my mom and dad. Maybe I didn’t have the childhood people think you should have, but I still went through the ages, I was still a child. Maybe it wasn’t a conventional one, but you know… I like where I am now so it’s OK.

“I think my parents have learned by this point that none of (what they read) is probably true, and words can be put in your mouth.”
