Ashley Taylor Smith (née Horn; born October 12, 1992 in San Bernardino, California), formerly known by her stage names Bambi Monroe, Princess Bambi Monroe and Taylor Horn, is an American blogger, vlogger, entrepreneur and a former singer-songwriter and actress. She was one-half of the English-American alternative punk duo The Trending (formerly Civilized Tears). She was once compared to then-fellow Kentwood native and singer Britney Spears by various media sources early on in her career; she was dubbed by British media as somewhat of a Britney wannabe or clone.
Smith was born in San Bernardino, California. In the course of her singing career, Smith has transitioned from performing country-western music to bubblegum pop to alternative punk rock music. Smith was an occasional actress, having appeared in an unaired PBS made-for-TV movie and two music videos for the band Civilized Tears, which she shot before she joined the band. In addition to her music and acting careers, Smith also filmed videos as a makeup guru, started a now defunct clothing line called Punklicious and worked as a baby photographer for a short time. She married Civilized Tears/The Trending founder Tim Bennett Smith in 2009 and joined the band in 2011. Smith and her husband both retired from the entertainment industry after their second child was born and gave up music and acting.
