Taylor Momsen (born July 26, 1993) is an American actress, model and singer-songwriter. She is best known for her role as Jenny Humphrey in the [[Creator/{{TheCW}} [=CW=]]] show ''Literature/GossipGirl''. She began acting in commercials at three years old. Her film debut was as Cindy-Lou Who in the live-action film ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas''.

In 2008, Momsen became a professional model, and in 2010, she was chosen as the face of Music/{{Madonna}}'s "Material Girl" fashion line. She's the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the band Music/ThePrettyReckless.

!! Tropes:
* CoolShades: She's almost always seen wearing a pair of sunglasses.
* DistaffCounterpart: Compare her to career to that of {{Drake}}
* ExcessiveEvilEyeShadow: Leading to Celebitchy to give her the nickname her "Raccoon [=McPantsless=]".
* FormerChildStar: Though she's still managed to maintain a successful career.
* {{Goth}}
** PerkyGoth
* KnifeNut: [[http://www.mtv.co.uk/news/taylor-momsen/221822-taylor-momsen-has-knife-collection Apparently]].
* MessyHair
* RapunzelHair
* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: She once dressed like [[http://www.dlisted.com/files/imagecache/photo-preview/files/galleries/spl252629_002.jpg this]] while on tour. It's a quite a black metal image for a band who plays pretty straightforward radio rock.
* ShesGotLegs
* StatuesqueStunner: She's 5'8".
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Some of her outfits, especially shoes, were even bought at [[http://www.refinery29.com/taylor-momsen-buys-her-clothes-and-shoes-at-stripper-shops stripper shops]], though she may have [[http://metro.co.uk/2014/02/09/taylor-momsen-explains-those-stripper-shoes-i-was-a-teenager-exploring-my-sexuality-4296921/ grown out of this style]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: When she was a teenager, her style of dress and makeup made her look in her early to mid twenties. Also while Cindy-Lou Who was stated to be 8, she was only 6 during filming.

* {{Expy}}: She seems to have taken her onstage style from Cherie Currie of TheRunaways and Courtney Love
* FormerChildStar
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Momsen seems to be a strong believer in this one. She often, as part of her concert performances, asks young women in the audience to take off their tops and join her onstage for some dirty dancing, said dancing to usually include groping and suggestive hip thrusting.
** A tamer version appeared on ''Gossip Girl'' where Jenny and her friend Agnes dance in their bras.
*** She also recently did a photoshoot where she gropes topless porn star and friend Jenna Haze's breasts while also topless herself. And later during a performance got a lap dance from Haze.
