Former “Gossip Girl” star Taylor Momsen has never shied away from the spotlight, particularly after she formed rock group The Pretty Reckless. Now in this new video titled “The Words,” the 19-year-old is baring it all.
Momsen reveals various body parts while the spoken-word voiceover plays, then at the end reveals herself to be completely naked — though she is fuzzed out and shadows conceal her netherregions.
The voiceover is Momsen speaking the words of the band’s track “Under the Water,” which is the third track from their “Hit Me Like a Man” album. Momsen says:
Lay my head under the water, lay my head under the sea. Excuse me, sir, am I your daughter? Won’t you take me back and see?
It’s not a time for being younger and all my friends are enemies. And if I cried unto my mother, she wasn’t there for me.
Broken lines across my mirror show my face all red and bruised. And though I screamed and screamed, no one came running. I wasn’t safe from you.
Don’t let the water drag you down, don’t let me drown in the waves. If I could be found, I could be one that was saved.
Lay my head under the water. Alone I pray for calmer seas. And when I wake from this dream with chains all around me, I’ve never been free.
The video is below. Warning: pseudo-nudity at the end.
