I honestly don’t really get the big deal about Adrianne Curry. She’s hot and all, but there’s something about her that just doesn’t sit right with me. As the first winner of “America’s Next Top Model” she has the distinction of being the standard to which all other winners are compared and I’m not sure she really holds up. With her announcement that she is separating from husband Christopher Knight (Peter Brady from “The Brady Bunch”), I feel like I should be surprised but somehow I’m not. I like Adrianne in theory. The fact that she doesn’t try to the fact that she’s a geek and that she shows the world that geeks can be sexy. Perhaps it’s her obvious vanity, but if I was as hot as her, I’d probably be pretty full of myself too.

Oh Taylor. You were once so cute and innocent. Now look at you – black thigh-high garters, slip dress, Courtney Love rat’s nest hair and gothic black eyeliner. We’ve seen it all before. This is your signature style – how you separate yourself from the Miley’s in the actress turned pop star game. That sneaky little upskirt shot from your live Concert in Carson couldn’t have been an accident. You much know you can’t wear a dress that short on stage and not flash a little panty here and there. I don’t think you care though. I’ll admit, I have an inexplicable distaste for Miley Cyrus. It’s a problem, but for some reason, I like Taylor Momsen. Maybe it’s because she’s doing something different. Maybe it’s because she has attitude. Maybe it’s because she isn’t everywhere like Ms. Cyrus. But please, Taylor. You’re not even seventeen. Put on some damn pants before I have to start having a problem with you too. You don’t have to flash your panties to be a rock star. A little talent helps though. At least you have that.

Get it? Because her band is called The Pretty Reckless. Yeah, lame, I know. Anyway, moving on. I don’t really know what I think of Taylor Momsen anymore. It seems like every move she makes is premeditated to make her look as bad ass as possible, but the more out there she gets, the more innocent I believe she is. Sure flashing her underage breasts on stage at one of her most recent gigs turned some heads. I, on the other hand, just rolled my eyes and yawned a little. It’s old news. This is what we know about Momsen. She has no problem talking about masturbation and her love for her vibrator. She blames her parents for her behavior because they pushed her into acting. I happen to think that’s probably the truest statement that’s ever come out of her mouth. That said, Taylor – performing here at The Academy in Manchester – is no more of a wild child that her pop culture counterpart, Miley Cyrus. The difference is Taylor wants you to think she’s as bad ass as Miley probably is. She isn’t though. She’s a little girl trying to play ball with the big kids – and she’s striking out. She comes across as a sad girl desperate for attention and I’m guessing that’s really closer to the truth.
