Taylor Momsen Covers The xx And Rihanna AT THE SAME TIME

By Scott Lapatine / August 25, 2010

Courtney Love already hates her, so Gossip Girl‘s Carrie Wright Taylor Momsen probably didn’t think twice about dissing Rihanna in Spin a few weeks back. “People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred,” she said. “Now Rihanna’s wearing fucking leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.”

Whoops.

So to prove she actually thinks Rihanna is “very talented,” Little J and a member of her band the Pretty Reckless stopped by Radio 1’s Live Lounge to perform an acoustic mashup of the xx’s “Islands” and Eminem & Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie.”

The Pretty Reckless – “Islands/Love The Way You Lie” (Acoustic)

Thanks (I think) for the tip Graham.

And here’s the dinner party for “Miss Nothing” which cost $7,000 in eyeshadow alone:

Nice goblets. Eat your heart out, Kanye.

The Pretty Reckless’ debut LP features a toddler in a leather jacket on the cover and can be pre-ordered for a reasonable $27.89 on Amazon.com. The fourth season of Gossip Girl premieres on the CW 9/13 and will be mocked promptly by Videogum. (UPDATE: Actually, Videogum will be retiring the GG recaps. Sorry kids.)

No word if Momsen has read Get In The Van.
