Is it sad that I consider this a victory?

Yes, Taylor Momsen looks like a magician’s assistant at a nightclub called Shazam. However, her makeup is like a breath of fresh air compared to the heavy-tread tires she’d been sporting around her eyes lately, and I don’t want to lock her in the closet until she turns thirty-one. Of course, she’s on the Gossip Girl set, so I don’t hold out any hope that this is a turn for the better. But as long as Taylor is collecting money to be upstanding, then we’ll all sleep better at night.
