Taylor Momsen clears the air on Twitter
Update Jan. 27, 2010: Twitter has suspended the @IAmtaylormomsen Twitter account. This may not be her “real” account and I apologize. It's hard to figure out the difference between a celebrity's real and “fake” Twitter accounts unless they are verified!
Taylor Momsen, who plays Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl, cleared the air about her recent comments through her Twitter account (@IAMTaylorMomsen).
A recent comment she made at an event was taken out of context to make it seem that Taylor didn't care about what was happening in Haiti. According to OK! magazine, Taylor said:
“Um, right now I’m trying to just finish my record and getting through the last season of Gossip Girl for right now. So not so much thinking about that.” Added Taylor, “But it’s awesome that everyone is ya know working towards a good cause.”
Here are some of Taylor's Tweets from the last few days where she gives her side:
“clarification about Haiti: I truly deeply sorry and sad for what happened in Haiti and I'll do anything to help the victims…(Cont)”
“(Cont)…unfortunately I couldn't fly directly to Haiti to help….but I'll make sure that I'll donate whatever it takes to help :)…Taylor”
I might NOT gonna attend the Haiti fundraising events, but that doesn't mean I'm not helping the victims! some ppl are just too stupid
I don't get it…what I said was: I don't have time to attend the fundraising because I'm caught up in works…does that make me ignorant?NO
I prefer to give my donation in silence…so if u don't know anything,don't make comments or judgments!
I think everyone needs to give Taylor a break. Let's remember, first of all, that she's only 16 years old. I think she was taken off guard and what she said was misconstrued for not caring. Taylor meant to say that with her work schedule she wouldn't be able to attend the fund-raisers. Through her Tweets, she does try to explain her side of the story (which is the great part about Twitter!).
These photos of Taylor wearing fishnet stocking were taken on the Gossip Girl set Thursday in Queens, New York.
