Taylor Momsen mimics Miley Cyrus's by getting naked in music video

Taylor Momsen pulled a Miley Cyrus by getting naked in her latest music video.

According to a Feb. 13 report by E! Online, The Pretty Reckless singer sports nothing but a few strategically-placed strips of body paint in her dark new "Heaven Knows" music video. Instead of riding a wrecking ball, Taylor rocks a giant black cross on her chest with an arrow at the end that covers up the rest of her lady parts.

It might seem weird to compare Miley and Taylor since their music genres are drastically different, but the girls have more in common than their love of showing skin. For one thing, they've both decided to focus more on making music than on their acting careers. They also both rose to fame as child stars. Taylor played Cindy Lou Who in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," and Miley got her big break when she was cast on "Hannah Montana." Interestingly, Taylor actually auditioned to star on the Disney TV series. However, the "Gossip Girl" star told London Sunday Times Magazine that it's a very good thing that she didn't get the part. "Honestly, if I’d have ended up as Hannah Montana, I don’t know if the show would have gone as well," she said. "I probably would have told them all to go f*** themselves by the time I hit 11."

Taylor Momsen probably won't like this article, because she hates being compared to Miley Cyrus. In 2010, Taylor talked to FHM UK about the Miley comparisons. "I'm not looking to be Miley f***ing Cyrus," she said. "I don't care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we'll go along for the ride. I'm not dissing Miley personally. However, I do think the Disney bubblegum shit that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression. I don't know Miley, but musically we're different. To compare us because of our age is silly."

However, Taylor was impressed with how Miley used the MTV Video Music Awards to get the world buzzing. When a Twitter user asked the "Going to Hell" singer for her opinion of the twerk-tastic performance, Taylor tweeted, "think she’s gotta do what she’s gotta do, she’s very smart."

Now that Taylor has warmed up to Miley, maybe someday the goth rocker and the hip-hop-lite singer will collaborate. Just imagine how many heads would explode if they got naked in the same music video.
