Taylor Momsen (who some of you may better know as Little J from Gossip Girl, a rebellious teenaged clothing designer who one time sewed ecstasy pills onto a blazer in the best television plotline in all of recorded history) opened up about navigating the world of celebrity as a young woman. Guess what? It is really creepy and horrible!

In an interview with the Daily Beast, she addressed the way she was treated in the media — specifically, she spoke about a photo of her tampon string that gossip sites fiended over:

"Once, my tampon string was put on the Internet when I was 15 because some asshole shot up my dress and it made big headlines. For a year, if you Googled 'Taylor Momsen' the tampon photo was the first thing that came up. When that happens, you just go, I really just don't give a fuck, and you close the computer. People are going to say what they're going to say, and the tabloids will always spin shit."

Good for her for being so self-possessed at 15; if that had happened to me, I would have crawled into a corner and restarted my Neopets account and never spoken to a real human again.

She concludes, "If anyone thinks I'm doing anything more controversial than fuckin' Led Zeppelin, you're insane, because I can see Robert Plant's fuckin' dick… you know?" Good point, Taylor. [Daily Beast]

Kim Kardashian admitted in court that she is not good at doing makeup, which is a truly shocking revelation (I guess she must just have an in-house contour-er who sleeps on the sofa in Kris Jenner's bathroom?). Anyway, the weirdest part of this story is that the Kardashians are being sued over their makeup line, Khroma, because a makeup line called Khroma already exists. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? [Radar]

The Westboro Baptist Church, a truly irrelevant hate organization, had plans to picket an upcoming Lorde concert (their reasoning isn't that clear, I think it might be because there is only one Lord[e] and it's God? Not sure). In a now-deleted tweet, Lorde urged her fans to wear rainbow and kiss the protestors. [Billboard]

Setting aside the fact that you really shouldn't be taking upskirt photos at all, can we just talk about how some fucking creep shot up a 15-year-old's skirt?
