Taylor Momsen has been dubbed as a troubled Hollywood teen by just about everyone in the press, but I doubt they’ve even bothered to listen to her band’s (The Pretty Reckless) debut album. If they did, they’d know this angst teen evokes Courtney Love and her idol Debbie Harry in some hard-rocking songs that are pretty damn catchy no matter what her lifestyle suggests. Anyway, in the photo above, she hangs with alt-queen Liz Phair (make a good album again – please, we miss you) backstage at CARRERA Sunglasses Escape during the Samsung Focus™ Concert. It marked Momsen’s first SXSW performance.
