Taylor Momsen might often be sans pants, but according to her, that is just fine. “I don’t care,” she told E! News backstage at the G-Star Raw fashion show Tuesday night in NYC. “I think if everyone’s going to be so upset about what I’m wearing, I’m like, well, maybe you should look at your life a little more. I don’t know why you’re so obsessed with mine.”

For the 16-year-old Gossip Girl star, she’s just heeding the call of art.

“Music inspires me,” she says of her choice to bare what she will. “Fashion means everything. I mean, it’s art. Art means everything to me, so fashion’s another side of it. It’s expression, it’s music, it’s a way of showing and really being who you are in your own way that no one can take away from you.”

For the record, Taylor, our critical attention to your wardrobe comes from a place of love.
