Taylor Momsen gets a lot of criticism from adults due to her scantily clad bad girl image saying that she should be a role model. How does she respond? She flat out admits she doesn't want to be one.
"I have no intention of being a role model," says the lead singer of the band the Pretty Reckless. "In fact, I would advise kids not to look up to me. I'm totally out of my mind, I mean, if I'm being blatantly honest here. Don't try to imitate me."
At least she's honest. She does have one piece of advice she'd like to get out there, "I think the only message that I really preach is find who you are and be yourself and don't let anyone give you flak for that because that's not fair."
The just-turned-17-year-old blames tabloids for misconstruing the images of celebrities. She says, "I'm not asking people to like me or for you to want to be me or anything. Someone takes a photo of me smoking and I can't control that. I'm not putting it on the internet. Just try to see that there's a person behind the image that you are getting fed by tabloids because I'm not what you read in the tabloids. I'm very misconstrued. I'm a very misconstrued person in the way that people paint me."
