Taylor Momsen Tampon Fiasco & Dakota Fanning The Runaways (2010)

I know this may be “old news” for some, especially flow-lovers and dedicated Taylor Momsen fans… but given that my blog IS about menstruation, it’d almost make me feel guilty not to report this. Speaking of which, this morning I watched The Runaways starring Dakota Fanning and I think that any flow-lover would love the first 5 minutes of the movie… in fact, the first 5 seconds of the movie drips right on the theme of menstruation!

So back to my story about Taylor Momsen… to be honest, I have no idea who she is – I don’t keep up with “celebrity and stars” – especially North American ones. Being an avid watching of channels like TVB, I’m rarely familiar with American stars or celebs. Ask me something about Chinese celebs and I’ll probably be on top of those details though, LOL – especially the Edison Chen and girls incident, harhar. Taylor Momsen appeared in movies such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) and Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams (2002) and is a active member of the Gossip Girl series. Apparently she’s part of a band called “The Pretty Wreckless” but I would have no idea since I’m disconnected from English movies and music – however, the internet is always a joy-full of information 😀

Taylor Momsen while doing a concert @ Vans Warped Tour in Carson, California had an unfortunate case of fashion faux-pas where she was wearing period-stained underwear and also her tampon string was hanging out. There was huge controversy about the people who took the picture since it’s considered an up-skirt and thus ILLEGAL in most countries since she’s underage (and of course I’m sure there are laws against taking pictures up girls skirts…). X17, a Celebrity News and Gossip site decided to post uncensored pictures of Taylor’s crotch, period-stain and tampon included. As of this moment, it would appear that the post no longer exists except for cached versions. Obviously they received enough heat that they withdrew the entry. I’m not a lawyer so I’m not going to go contest the legal implciations behind it.

This is not the first time that a tampon string has been seen hanging out, all the way from Lady Gaga to Britney Spears – tampon strings are apparently quite a fashion statement 😛 Stuff like this commonly happens to girls, just that when you’re a celebrity or someone in a “position of stardom” it tends to hit harder and everyone ends up finding out about it. There’s probably millions or at least thousands of girls everyday who have exposed tampon strings or even exposed wings from their pad underneath their skirts through their panties but because they’re not “famous”, either no one notices or no one cares.

For the sake of compliance with site regulations, this is the censored version which was posted by bloggers/reposters/more conservative news sites. I’m not going to take a side and say whether I agree or disagree with this picture or whether sites should’ve been forced to take it down – I’m just writing what I’m reading.

I’m going to finish The Runaways tomorrow when I get to work, so hopefully I’ll have some more good things to say about it – other than the awesome start of the movie that fellow menstruation-fans would love 😆

  1. I would have ghladly tucked that string back in for her if requested. BUT, I bet that she intentionally placed the string in that position so it would readily be seen as she and we all know full well guys and lots of gals are going to look and check out the pubic area to see what they can see and see what they are missing. The same with Britany Spears. I bet my life on it it was placed in sight intentionally. I seen a chick with her zipper open and a string hanging out. Tell me that was not intentional. Its done to draw attention and to satisfy their exhibitionist fetish needs. Everyone has some kink to their life in some manner. Myt ex wife used to like to go pantyless and yess during her time of the month wore tampons and always sat or posed so others could always get a view up her skirt while we ate in restaurants etc. You can see folks looking, but she never yet a complaint.

    • When it comes to celebrities – bad publicity is good publicity. Look at all the uproar it has caused and certainly, that’s put the spotlight on her – even if it’s just over an untucked tampon string! Of course we’ll never know whether this was intentional or not. If this was intentional as in the scenario of your ex wife, then quite obviously the person can’t complain if others look – that’d be like running down the street naked – people will look and that person has no right to complain. If it was Taylor’s intention to do that, then of course she’ll defend herself, but probably smiling/happy on the inside that people are taking note of it and generating free publicity for her. Both the media and people are crazy like this – they just want to have a topic to talk about, so why not generate one like pulling off something like this? As far as I know, upskirts are quite illegal in Canada/U.S. but that doesn’t mean it’s going to stop anyone by any means 😆

      Boys will be boys – you give us something to look at and we’ll definitely look – no matter how young or how old we are!

    • If girls show things off, they want guys to look T__T Feels worse if guys DON’T look! I juz hate girls who show things off and when guys look they complain… then don’t show in the first place and cover-up and don’t pretend to be all “good” and “shy”… such contradiction….

      • LOL ya…. if I go show off my abs, I’d want girls to look too XD

        They’re actually developing a bit now ^__^ I’m not any lighter, but much thinner in appearance. Just have to get a bit of fat off my face and I’m set! I’m so happy that my weight loss is actually working for once… have to still bring up my hours of exercise though – still not enough!
