Taylor Momsen flashes her breasts to a bunch of fans in New York City on Thursday-but why? There will be talk about the Taylor Momsen flash for the next several weeks and debate as to why Taylor Momsen did it. In fact, the hype surrounding this stunt is growing rather quickly. So much so that the search term “Taylor Momsen flashes” is quickly rising on Google Hot Trends.
What I want to know is why a 17 year old girl would do such a premeditated act that will obviously be regarded as controversial. According to various reports(not to mention pics and photos of the incident), Taylor was wearing pasties so the concert crowd only got a little bit of a view of her naked body. But why does a 17 year old feel as if she has to reveal her body to a crowd? Is this to generate publicity or just to be a little rebellious. Momsen is making(or should be) great money so she doesn’t really probably need any extra exposure(no pun intended). But in this day and age of videos going viral, perhaps Momsen or her agent thought the extra publicity might help get her name out there and sell more records. Maybe Taylor just issued an impromptu flash to her fans? Now the rocker will forever be remembered as the 17 year old who flashed her body to a concert audience.
The Taylor Momsen flash pictures and videos are everywhere. The Superficial has Taylor Momsen flash pics, photos and video posted on its website. The actual video of the incident(on purpose) blocks out the actual flash with a black bar. That’s exactly what probably should happen considering she is just 17 years old. I am not so sure why young stars(particularly female) feel they need to push their naked body out in front of the eyes of the masses? Maybe they feel it’s liberating to some extent or what the public actually wants. It could seem to many people that an attempt to draw attention by flashing your boobs means you are insecure about yourself and your music. Maybe the music isn’t strong enough to just stand alone in other words? Or maybe Taylor Momsen is the kind of person who just doesn’t care. It’s hard to ever guess the intentions of someone. What we do know in this particular situation is that Taylor Momsen was obviously prepared to flash her naked body at some point during the concert. She had pasties on so there was at least some thought before the actual concert.
What happens next for Momsen? The flash pics and photos will probably draw a gazillion hits as this story goes viral over the next few days. More people like me will write about it and Taylor Momsen will probably reap some rewards in terms of immediate publicity and attention from what she did on stage. Will it earn her more fans? There is obviously a strong chance many people who haven’t heard of her will watch the videos or view the pics and photos and in the process sample her music. If the music is good enough, fans will probably latch on at some point. If the music isn’t good enough, Taylor just basically exposed herself for nothing. Hugh Hefner would have probably paid a huge sum of money when she turns 18 to have her in his Playboy magazine.
Playboy probably would still dish out the dough to land Momsen in a nude pictorial when she turns legal age.
Only time will if the Taylor Momsen flash will benefit her financially or career wise. The unfortunate thing is if it does help her career, we may see other young teens imitating her on stage act. That could open up a new set of problems for many of the already trouble celebrity teen actors, actresses and performers.
