Taylor Momsen 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''.

!! This actress provides examples of:
* AmbiguouslyGay: Everyday it seems less and less likely it is just [[FauxYay Stage Gay]].
** BiTheWay: There have been a few notes that she may actually be bisexual.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: There's certainly no shortage of girls willng to show some skin to get onstage with her. Some of them, judging by live concert footage seen on Youtube, seem particularly, umm, enthusiastic about getting close to her.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeShadow: Leading to Celebitchy to give her the nickname her "Raccoon [=McPantsless=]".
* {{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.
