Flipping through People last night, I came across a list of recent album releases. My eyes were drawn to The Pretty Reckless because of the Gossip Girl reference. Do I watch that show? No. Am I ok with that? More than you’ll ever know. I wrote myself a quick note, telling myself to check it out during work because, as I’m sure most of you know, a good laugh is always a mood lifter.
As it turns out, I didn’t laugh at all when the song came on. Reminiscent of an edgier Ashlee Simpson, front girl Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless surprised me quite a bit, and took me back to senior year of high school. That brief surprise was nothing compared to the shock that came seconds later. Recognizing her from more than a Gossip Girl ad here and there, I did a quick Google search on Taylor Momsen.
I was having a little party in my cube to a song sung by none other than CINDY LOU WHO from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Was I embarrassed before I found that little factoid? No. Am I embarrassed now? Not at all; that’s hilarious. Now all I can picture is little Miss Cindy Lou Who and her awesome hair rocking out to Miss Nothing.
Will I fall victim to another child star gone musician? Where are you, Christmas, and why can’t I find you? Stay tuned to find out. xoxo, HauteThought
