We already know that Taylor Momsen’s life was ruined by her parents, who forced her to dance like a monkey in Shake N’ Bake commercials. But now, we know that the horrors of her childhood run deeper than we ever thought possible.

Remember adorable little Cindy Lou Who, from Jim Carrey’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”? Well, guess what — that adorable little girl who embodied the childlike spirit of Christmas cheer was Taylor Momsen. As the world tried to reclaim its innocence through her  soulful eyes and stacked up hair, she was slowly building up a deep swell of anger and resentment which she would eventually express through the excessive use of eyeliner.

What a world.
