  • Taylor Momsen turned 18 last July, but she seems a little too cool for Playboy. So she pulls up her shirt for the UK edition of FHM magazine and opens up her heart about stripper shoes. Honest!

    Momsen, the former “Gossip Girl” actress, has been touring with her band The Pretty Reckless. She definitely fills a void in rock ‘n roll since Kourtney Love gave in to booze, pills and self-absorption.

    Thank god, Momsen is more like Joan Jett. She’s out to make a statement only she’s yet to figure out what it is, unless it’s, maybe, anything-goes debauchery? In her FHM shoot she lives for the party.

    Check out Taylor’s photos; click to enlarge.

    She’s big on this “Addams Family,” Uncle Fester vibe, but you can’t deny she’s sexy with those dark raccoon eyes, lithe body and bleached blonde hair.

    On the other hand, she looks like she just crawled out of a backroom, reeking of beer, semen and cigarettes. She’s half dressed in hooker clothes with ratty hair and smeared makeup.

    She wears a little devil-worship tee-shirt, obviously designed to provoke. But the look apparently fits her outlook.

    “I love [the UK] I love that it’s always kind of gloomy,” she tells the magazine. “I don’t like the sun. Every now and again I want to go to the beach and be in the sun, but that’s a very rare feeling, so I could live in London, definitely.

    “I like the rain. I like the gloom, and everyone’s got such an attitude, be it a good or a bad one. I like that everyone who you meet has a distinct personality,” she says.

    She’s pretty hard on posers, although she’s been accused of being one herself. “I don’t like people who pretend to be something to fit into a certain crowd, or guys who pay more attention to how they look than you do – that’s not a good thing,” she says.

    “My biggest thing is be yourself. Be yourself and if people don’t like you, then they can suck a d*ck.”

    Momsen is pretty imposing on stage. She’s model tall at 5’8″ and likes to wear sky high heels. Not too many everyday saps are going to be able to look her in the eye. But that’s OK by her.

    She loves her heels. “I love stripper shoes and I always try to find the tallest ones. I’m always surprised no one talks about my shoes,” she says.

    She doesn’t like guys who try too hard, but she comes on like a runaway cement truck. “I can work 24 hours a day and not have it bother me. I go to bed at, like, 9am, sleep for four hours, then get up and start the day again,” she says.

    Ah, 18. But we like it. Check out her photos.
