Ha-ha! Actually no, there's not another remake (that I know of) of The Grinch but the season that the Grinch story is all about is back! So after a long day of raking (actually we used a blower but we have a really big yard and lots of trees so it took a tiring while) and putting together some stuff we got for the back yard, we decided to put on our old copy of Jim Carrey's version of Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Can you believe that cute little girl playing Cindy Lou Who was little Taylor Momsen? Or perhaps I should rephrase my question.
Can you believe this goth-looking, alternative rock band singer IS the SAME girl that played little Cindy Lou Who? Would you have thought she'd grow up to be such a rebel spirit and be in a band called The Pretty Reckless?
Personally, I sometimes wonder if this "style" is not just some phase that Taylor Momsen will eventually outgrow. (I certainly hope so because under that raccoon eye make up, I think she still has amazing good looks which we often see in her non-band photos). Will she ever adopt a healthy lifestyle (like quitting smoking) and save her precious youth and beauty? Or will she go down the same disastrous path that the also once cute child star Lindsay Lohan seems to be traveling?

Guess we'll just have to wait and see...
