And Taylor Momsen continued in her quest to make herself the centre of attention with her latest public appearance at the Download festival, held at Donington Park in Leicestershire.
The 17-year-old threw on a loose-fitting top that exposed her chest, but she was considerate enough to at least cover her nipples with duct tape.

Her top is one she appears to have altered herself, slashing the neck, removing the sleeves and leaving the sides open.
The T-shirt depicts rock band Sonic youth with the slogan Confusion is sex. Conquest for death.
Taylor and her group took to the Download stage to perform to a rain-drenched, yet receptive crowd.
They worked their way through a selection of tracks from their album, Light Me Up, including popular track Makes Me Wanna Die.
Taylor worked on the album with her band for two years, and it has been released to a good reception.
Speaking about the reaction to the album she recently told the Huffington Post: 'I worked on it for two years. I am really relieved that it's finally come out and I can let the music speak for itself.

'You can talk all you want, but at the end of the day if the record is not good, it doesn't matter. The reception has been great.
'We went from playing a 100-seat club to a 3,000 venue, and once the record came out, we've started seeing fans singing every word.'
She also cast doubt on her future as an actress.

Asked if she would go back to acting, Taylor revealed: 'I don't know... maybe at some point. It's certainly not what I think about.
'It's something I enjoyed and it's a big part of my life since three years old, but I'm really happy doing what I'm doing. I won't say I'll never act again but music is what I think about.'
Momsen's look is not the carefully crafted work of PR image-makers. In fact, the former child star fired her stylist because she was unhappy with the squeaky-clean look they had been developing.

She told MTV: 'I think firing my stylist has allowed me to be more free.
'I was getting moulded into this thing that wasn’t who I am.'
The former Gossip Girl actress explained that she dresses for herself, rather than to be provocative, and likens choosing her clothes to dressing her doll collection.

'I do myself up kind of like a doll. I have a doll collection and I look at their outfits and kind of imitate them.
'I still wear pieces from when I was in f*****g middle school,' she added - which, given her age, wasn't all that long ago.
Her love of vamping it up has even led some to draw comparisons between her and rocker Courtney Love.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Momsen responded to the comparison.
'I don't wanna be Courtney Love - I wanna be Kurt Cobain. He's brilliant and his songs are genius,' she said.
'The Hole records are great,' she continued.
'Everyone always compares me to Courtney Love because they think we like dress the same and we both have blond hair, wear lipstick and dresses. But I'm sorry, don't a lot of girls dress like that? I look at Nirvana. I don't look at Hole.'
