Taylor Momsen is such a rebel

Edgy Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen told Parade (ahem) that she doesn’t care what people think of her and that she’ll smoke whenever and wherever and that she’s not a role model, dammit! Warning: Angsty 16-year-old below.

She’s doing it her way.
“I don’t read that crap that describes me as having an attitude, but I don’t know why that’s a bad thing. Attitude is in the eye of the beholder. I didn’t get into this to be a role model for 7-year-olds. I have no interest in doing that, you know? If parents don’t like some of the stuff I do then they shouldn’t let their kids watch me.”

Like, her smoking.
“I smoke, so what? Why do people give a s— what a 16-year-old girl who they’ve never met does? It’s not like I’m sitting there going, ‘Kids, you should go buy a pack of cigarettes.’ When I walk outside with a cigarette and someone takes a picture of it and puts it on the Internet, its not my problem. I’m just living my life and I’m not gonna live my life for other people.”

Not playing the fame game.
“I’m not Paris Hilton. I don’t really care about being a celebrity. It comes along with the territory so you can’t totally avoid it. But there’s a difference between doing the red carpet and having people invade my personal life taking pictures of me. And that’s why celebrity is so stupid. You don’t want to become something that a few million people watching your show want you to be. I want to be who I am because, if I lose that, then what am I doing this for? It’s not about fitting in. If you don’t fit in as yourself, then you don’t fit in.”

Wow. Such a unique snowflake. Never in my life have I ever seen such a rebellious young teen. She doesn’t care what anyone thinks?! LOL! I’m going to tell all my friends about this. “Did you hear? Taylor doesn’t, nay, won’t listen to anyone! I know, I couldn’t believe it either!”
