Check out more photos, a funny story from TayMom's manager and behind the scenes info from Buzznet's day with Taylor here!
Since then, the rocker has been keeping busy. Even though she isn't joining this year's Warped Tour, Taylor has been touring the world, sharing her music and shocking stage antics. Recently, Taylor performed with at the Tuborg Festival in Germany with 30 Seconds to Mars. Prior to that, TayMom stunned her audience in Spain when she gave a lap dance to a half-dressed crowd member onstage. Upcoming: a few November dates with Evanescence in the UK.
What's next for Taylor now that she's legal? We'll have to wait and see!
At the peak of Blink-182’s fame, Tom DeLonge had a lot of ideas kicking through his head. At a tour stop in Paris, sitting his hotel room, the singer came up with the concept of a character named Poet Anderson. Now, nearly 15 years later, he’s ready to incorporate that idea into a much larger and ambitious project with Angels & Airwaves than he’s ever attempted before.
