Taylor Momsen of 'Gossip Girl' appears nude in band's video
Taylor Momsen of "Gossip Girl" appears completely nude in a NSFW spoken-word video from her band, The Pretty Reckless.
The 19-year-old former child star is the lead singer of the alternative rock band The Pretty Reckless. The black and white video shows Momsen reciting the lyrics to the band's song, "Under the Water."
She is shown completely nude, with her private parts blurred, at the end of the 1:15 minute video, which is part of Amp Rock TV's "The Words" project.
The lyrics from "Under the Water" include the lines, "Excuse me sir am I your daughter? Won't you take me back and see? It's not a time for being younger and all my friends are enemies. And if I cried unto my mother, she wasn't there for me."
Momsen previously appeared in her underwear and thigh-high fishnet stockings in the 2010 Pretty Reckless music video, "Make Me Wanna Die."
The Pretty Reckless' debut album, "Light Me Up," was released in August 2010 and contains tracks such as "Make Me Wanna Die." The album reached the top 10 on music charts in the United Kingdom but not in Momsen's native United States.
The band embarked on a worldwide tour in 2010 in support of their debut album. The tour concluded in March 2012, when they embarked on a second tour, The Medicine Tour, where they performed as the supporting act for Marilyn Manson and Evanescence.
The band released their second EP, "Hit Me Like a Man," in March 2012. The album included three new songs and two live versions of songs featured on their debut album.
Momsen portrayed Jenny Humphrey on The CW's "Gossip Girl" from its 2007 debut until she quit acting in August 2011, to concentrate on her music career. The show's sixth and final season premiered earlier in the month.
"I quit acting, actually," Momsen told Elle magazine in a 2011 interview. "I quit 'Gossip Girl' and now tour and am in a band and that's pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully I'll be able to only do that for the rest of my life."
Prior to starring on "Gossip Girl," Momsen played Cindy Lou Who in the 2000 film "'How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and the president's daughter in the 2002 movie "Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams". She has not filmed anything aside from "Gossip Girl" in recent years.
