Taylor Momsen is doing her own thing and she doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her career path, personality or goth look. The face of Madonna‘s Material Girl line and Gossip Girl starlet has responded to one opponent in particular, beloved Project Runway fashion guru Tim Gunn, who called the starlet a “pathetic brat.”
“I don’t respond to that,” Taylor told reporters on the carpet at Madonna and her daughter Lourdes‘ launch of the new Material Girl fashion line at Macy’s Herald Square in NYC Wednesday night.
Taylor’s camp also supported her strong will, with someone yelling, “We don’t respond to name calling.”
As for her other haters, the 17-year-old said you can either love her or leave her.
“It’s about owning it no matter what anyone says,” Taylor said. “This is who I am and this is who I am going to be. It’s about every girl being true to themselves.”
