It’s a battle of the generations: [artist id="1165312"]Courtney Love[/artist] started a Twitter war with “Gossip Girl” star and Pretty Reckless frontwoman Taylor Momsen, as well as [artist id="1967806"]the Veronicas[/artist].
Love took to her Twitter page to lash out at the young rockers, saying Momsen and Australian sister group the Veronicas are biting the former Hole frontwoman’s act. Love tweeted: “Why does Taylor Whatsit deeply disturb me and why is the Blonde one from the verons or whatever they are called wearing my actual clothes?”
She also personally tweeted each of her intended targets. “I don’t watch tv or read teen mags and gossip rags so I wouldn’t know,” she wrote to Momsen. “Do not still ‘like my music’ please.”
Meanwhile, in a tweet to the Veronicas, she referenced how she felt they stole her look. “I asked you or your sister to just stop wearing the clothes she stole,” she wrote, even though she later clarified that they hadn’t actually stolen her clothes.
And earlier this week at her sweet-16 party in New York , Momsen addressed the fact that many times, her look is compared to Love’s. “[You're] not the first person to say that,” she said of the comparison. “And I love Hole, and they had a cool thing and a cool vibe, and I’m influenced by a lot of people.”
