I’m now in London, but thought I’d schedule some posts for you to read while I’m gone. I know, I know, I’m too good!

In any case, here’s the first, in which I ponder the question: Taylor Momsen – good or bad?

I would always have been in the Taylor Momsen bad camp*, insofar as I thought she dressed quite ridiculously, and that this was a very bad thing, as, frankly, she didn’t look great, and not a little like a lady of the night, and let’s not forget that TayTay is only 17 years old and should therefore be dressing in a way befitting a 17-year-old, innit?

But then I saw Taylor perform on Saturday last at Oxegen with her band, The Pretty Reckless, and aside from thinking, woah, she’s really quite naked, I thought they were pretty decent. I mean, girl can sing. Plus, she is really sexy. Now, this is weird because, as I mentioned, she is only 17, but I somehow managed to suspend my disgust at that point and really appreciate her.

Apparently not as much as she appreciated herself, but I digress: did you see TayTay at Oxegen? Have you heard any of her music? Would you like to? Well wait no more! I can provide:

 

I still want to pull out her hair extensions, mind you.

* As an aside, I recognise that it is a very bad sign that I look back on that post and think, I quite like those boots.
