A Quote From Detention Hall
16-year-old Taylor Momsen doesn't give a FLYING FRENCH TOAST (she's not allowed to say the word "fuck" until she turns 18) what you think about her smoking cigarettes.
Go ahead and put her on restriction for two weeks! Taylor is still going to smoke right in your face! Send her to military school! That won't stop her. Throw her ciggies in the toilet, and she'll roll up her Pee-Chee folder and smoke that! Bitch is living her life like a Pink song (that's as hardcore as she gets)!!!!
Taylor tells the edgy rock 'n roll magazine Parade:
"I don't read that crap that describes me as having an attitude, but I don't know why that's a bad thing. Attitude is in the eye of the beholder. I didn't get into this to be a role model for 7-year-olds. I have no interest in doing that, you know? If parents don't like some of the stuff I do then they shouldn't let their kids watch me.
I smoke, so what? Why do people give a shit what a 16-year-old girl who they've never met does? It's not like I'm sitting there going, 'Kids, you should go buy a pack of cigarettes.' When I walk outside with a cigarette and someone takes a picture of it and puts it on the Internet, its not my problem. I'm just living my life and I'm not gonna live my life for other people."
This sounds like something I'd say when I was 16. But instead of saying "smoking cigarettes," I said "drinking Mountain Dew," because my mom banned the stuff. Okay, I said it last week.
