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 😆
