Taylor Momsen sur le fait d'être la muse de Madonna.
Interview with Taylor Momsen in UK newspaper "Sunday Mirror":
Taylor Momsen: From Gossip Girl to Goth Queen
By Ruth Huntman 12/09/2010
Taylor Momsen, 17, was the good girl of Gossip Girl turned rock chick. She talks to us about being Madonna’s muse, growing up fast and being the weird kid at school…
OK, so just to recap. A scarily focussed teenager who knows what she wants, how to get it and is not afraid to say what she thinks. Oh, and did we mention the controversial video for her single Miss Nothing, where she does her take on Mary Magdalene, in stilettos and silver underwear. Remind you of anyone? Yep, Madonna. No wonder Taylor was the obvious choice when Madge wanted someone to model daughter Lourdes’ new teen rock fashion line, Material Girl.
"I get told all the time that I’m a fashion icon now, but I don’t really now what that means. I just get dressed. But yeah it’s great when I’m called Madonna’s muse. She’s an icon. So to be asked to model for her line was an honour. She came to the shoot and took some pictures. She’s hands-on with the styling and was ripping up shirts and stuff and even took some of the pictures. Lourdes is a smart, super-talented girl. She was more on top of things and organised than some of the adults there. Madonna said she was a fan of the band, hopefully she’ll come and see a show at some point when she’s not jet-setting across the world."
Taylor, who grew up in Connecticut, has been working since she was two. At seven she stole the show in The Grinch That Stole Christmas, then was pipped to the role of Hannah Montana by Miley Cyrus. Growing up so fast, it’s no wonder the songs on her album are far from girly.
Signed to model agency IMG at 14, she’s also got a New Look campaign under her belt and has just become the face of John Galliano’s new perfume.
