Taylor Momsen says her parents are unfazed by her nudity and skimpy clothing because they understand the ''artistic meaning'' behind it.
Taylor Momsen claims her parents don't ''care'' she gets naked and wears provocative clothing.
The 20-year-old singer, who stripped off for the cover of her Pretty Reckless album 'Going To Hell' and also appeared naked in her video for 'Heaven Knows', insists her parents Colette and Michael are supportive of her decisions and have been since she started her music career aged 16.
She said: ''My parents didn't really care. They knew I was experimenting with things, it's just f***ing clothing, I don't know why everyone makes a big deal out of it. My mum is really into fashion, it's just figuring out what you like.''
However, the controversial star insists her style has changed and developed and she has started to ''cover up a bit'' since the release of the band's debut album 'Light Me Up'.
She continued: ''I'm no longer wearing my corsets right now [but] I don't regret anything. It just has to have a purpose, it has to have an artistic meaning behind it ... otherwise I find it cheap. My parents understand the artistic meaning behind it [getting naked]. I started modelling at two and went into acting. I'm very comfortable with nudity.''
The former 'Gossip Girl' star thinks she was misunderstood when she first formed the band, but now that they have cemented themselves as a successful rock act people are taking her more seriously as a musician.
She said: ''In the beginning, it definitely took a minute for people to listen to the music and get over the age factor and the fact that I had previously acted.
''But now the fans really like the music, it's about writing a good song and connecting with people. It seems to be working ... they know every word to every song at every show. It's pretty f***ing awesome.''
