Everybody’s favorite citizen of Whoville is the innocent youngster, Cindy Lou Who, in Ron Howard’s version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas starring Jim Carrey. Played by 7 year-old Taylor Momsen, she was able to see the good in everyone, even the Grinch.
“Don’t forget the Grinch. I know he’s mean and hairy and smelly. His hands might be cold and clammy, but I think he’s actually kinda…sweet,” she said.
So, whatever happened to the wide-eyed Cindy Lou? Now, at 23, she’s a face-melting rocker fronting the band The Pretty Reckless. The band released their third studio album, Who You Selling For, in October of this year.
Thankfully, it would seem that Ms. Momsen never hit the wall that seems to plague children who get famous. She’s even thrown in a bit of a modeling career for good measure.
As she says in her own lyrics, “I gave my life to Rock ‘n Roll.”
So, when you get burned out on Christmas music this holiday season, give hits like “Heaven Knows” and “Follow Me Down” a try. You won’t hear any sleigh bells in their songs, but at least you know Who is singing.
Cindy Lou…Who would have thought?
