A new spoken word video featuring Taylor Momsen contains images of the 19-year-old star completely naked, albeit with parts of her anatomy carefully blurred out.
The 19-year-old appears in the short clip entitled “The Words,” reciting the lyrics to “Under the Water,” a song by her band, The Pretty Reckless.
Wearing naught but her famous eye make-up, Momsen is seen narrating lines such as “Broken lines, across my mirror. Show my face, all red and bruised. And though I screamed and I screamed, well no one came running. No I wasn’t saved.”
It’s all a far cry from the role of Jenny Humphrey on popular teenage drama Gossip Girl, the part that saw Momsen shoot to fame.
Following her tenure with Gossip Girl, Momsen announced she was quitting acting to pursue a career in music.
However, Momsen’s success as a TV actress and a model has yet to see The Pretty Reckless propelled to rock ‘n roll glory. The band’s first album, Light Me Up, reached number six in the UK album charts but limped to number 65 in the US Billboard 200. Perhaps a spot of nudity will change their fortunes?
Momsen has also performed in a series of modeling campaigns including one for Madonna and her daughter Lourdes’ clothing line Material Girl.
