Taylor Momsen -- Gunning for Miley-Like Controversy

10/14/2010 12:57 PM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

Underage "Gossip Girl" actress and raccoon-eyed wannabe Courtney Love rocker, Taylor Momsen has pulled a Miley Cyrus and ticked off a powerful parents organization for her sexed up, gun-toting magazine cover.

The Parents Television Council -- the same group that criticized Miley's new controversial music video -- believes parents should be "alarmed" with the 17-year-old (who is also the face of Madonna's clothing line, Material Girl) posing on the cover of the hard rock mag Revolver "wearing lingerie, gun belt and nothing else."

PTC further states, "By posing in this way, with guns in hand, she is making guns and violence seem sexy, and contributing to the already epidemic problem of kids’ overexposure to hyper-sexualized media content, which has been linked to depression, eating disorders, and sexual risk-taking."

A rep for Taylor was unavailable for comment.

I'm becoming increasingly aware that there is an evil, dedicated minority of Taliban Wannabes out there whose goal it is to immitate Iran or Saudi Arabia when it comes to public expressions of sensuality. Taylor is pretty tame compared to the teen idols of the 60s and 70s when I was a teen. Yet our country has taken a decidedly negative turn towards Victorian prudishness in the intervening years. It's time that normal American started standing up to this rightwing Christian Mafia that is trying to push its evil idea of morals on the rest of us. And TMZ, you are most guilty: you sell your publication by publishing the sexualized images of young women, and then you condemn them for posing in the same breath! Talk about hipocricy!!!

you are delusional as these typical images like this is what it takes to push a pedophile/sexual predator over the edge. as well as teachers in local schools begin to fantasize about their kid students..

in reference to age everyone knows she's still under age as in NOT 18 and above.. this is indeed a shot at child-porn as they are exploiting her.. even if it was done with her consent.. images like this are intended to send an msg out there that a predator could take as an invite....

i suggest you stfu unless you have your daughter dress like this and can safely walk down an alley by herself at night...

WTF is a 'Television' Council doing trying to say what goes on in magazine covers. Idiots. This girl is a rocker chick not a lame pop Miley wannabe.

Um, I would imagine she got paid some pretty good $$$ for posing for this cover, maybe that's why she did it. That said, a 17-year-old shouldn't be allowed to pose for this type of shot. That also being said, she doesn't have a good enough body for this type of shot...well, she might in a couple of years when/if she fills out.

The crime here isnt the fact that she is underage, scantily clad, toteing a gun..the crime is that she is on the cover of a musicians magazine, meaning people actually believe she is a real musician..sad

Wow. She looks like trash and cannot sing her way out of a paper bag. Hey Taylor-learn how to do your make up. You look like a clown on heroin.

This chick came out from the get go a teenage street walker with a lot of attitude. If kids are watching her that's on the parents. STOP LETTING MAGAZINES AND THE MEDIA RAISE YOUR KIDS!

This girl has no talent and clearly is trying to get any kind of attention that will keep her in the spotlight. She is trying a bit too hard with her look, the make up and what she says. She's full of **** AND she can't act. She's like a Lohan/Miley wannabe. Which is pretty pathectic.

People are assaulted with vehicles everyday, so I guess that, if pictures are taken of this young girl driving a car, then she is also promoting violence? Actually, any picture with any inanimate object, by these idiot's standards, is a promotion of violence. I mean, you can violently assault and/or kill someone with any object you can find...even your own body.

I own many guns, yet I am not a violent person, nor do I have violent tendencies.
