19-year-old Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen gets pretty clothesless in a new spoken word video as part of Amp Rock TV’s “The Words” campaign. In the black and white clip Momsen reads lyrics from The Pretty Reckless song “Under the Water” which wraps up with a stark naked Taylor Momsen standing and looking… well, really naked. (Click the above photo to see the raccoonless version)
I guess technically her breasts are blurred out and she’s wearing a pair of bikini bottoms made out of shadows, but there is very little left to the imagination.
And speaking of imagination, here are the “Under the Water” lyrics as read by Taylor Momsen in the clip:
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 I screamed no one came running, I wasn’t saved from you. Don’t let the water drag you down, don’t let me drown in the waves. 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.
Those lyrics and the nudity sure are a far cry from the 14-year-old actress television audiences were introduced to during the premiere season of Gossip Girl, and an even further cry from the three-year-old little girl helping mom out in a Shake ‘N’ Bake commercial!
