And they used to say taping was bad for the music industry.
But the sticky stuff helped Taylor Momsen, who was once again trying too hard to be controversial by sporting a very revealing tank while performing with her band The Pretty Reckless this weekend.
The 17-year-old had the forethought to cover up her nipples with some carefully placed electrical tape prior to taking the stage during the Download Festival in Leicestershire.
It's a decision we certainly wouldn't have expected from the former Gossip Girl star, who has never shied away from wearing outfits that leave little to the imagination.
In fact, one might say the ladies in our new Celeb Wardrobe Malfunctions gallery could actually learn something from Momsen's modesty here.
OK, yeah, maybe that's a stretch.
