Did Taylor Momsen's parents dress her up as a lobster-in-a-pot when she was a baby? How else to explain the monster teenager's near-naked rampage across the United States? (Okay, really, her rampage is confined to New York, but the coverage has certainly gone national.) Last night 17-year old Momsen flashed the audience at her show at Don Hill's. All this on top of talk of sex tapes and who she will and won't sleep with. The good news: Her parents probably don't have to worry about saving for college. The bad news: Therapy and rehab are pretty expensive these days. [Fashionista]
