The Pretty Reckless’ Taylor Momsen appears fully nude in new video – watch

Singer recites lyrics in 'arty' spoken-word clip

Taylor Momsen, lead singer of The Pretty Reckless , appears completely nude in a new spoken-word video.

The black-and-white clip, titled The Words, sees Momsen reciting the lyrics to her band’s track ‘Under The Water’ as the camera pans around various body parts. It ends with a full-length shot of Momsen standing completely naked.

“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,” say the lyrics.

A former teen TV star-turned-punk singer, Gossip Girl star Momsen has become famous for wearing risqué outfits on and off stage.

The Pretty Reckless released their debut album, ‘Light Me Up’, in 2010. A second album has not yet appeared, with Momsen telling NME earlier in 2011, “We’re really just focused on this record. We’re thinking about new material, but nothing’s definitive.”

Other artists to take part in Amp Rock TV’s The Words project include Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor and Marilyn Manson – though they keep their clothes on.
