Maybe not very newsworthy anymore. Nobody really cares about her that much, and I’m not saying that they should. I recently rewatched the episode of Saturday Night Live where Lohan hosts, and the entire episode is like a premonition of the years to come. Lohan was 17 when it taped in 2004 and in the episode she manages to mock her tabloid apperances, drunk driving, fake lesbians and exposed cleavage. Honestly, after a while it just got creepy.
Let’s just quickly compare those sketches with her later reality:
1) Overexposed girl on girl action // Lindsay + Samantha = overexposed girl on girl ❤
In the SNL skit, Lohan and Rachel Dratch are playing a version of the faux lesbian duo T.A.T.U. I would like to point out that I am not saying that Lohan and Ronson weren’t cute together. But the whole gay or not gay got so played out. Maybe the paparazzi would have left her alone if she just came out. Although she probably wouldn’t have wanted them to.
2) Lindsay + friends get in a car with Billy Joel who drunkenly drives them to a party // Lindsay get’s wasted and drives around
3) Lindsay is in the tabloids because of her feud with Hillary Duff // Lindsay is in the tabloids ALL THE FUCKING TIME
4) Harry Potter’s Hermione grows up and gets big boobs // Lindsay grows up and gets big boobs
Really, this phenomenon was happening at the time, but still.
I mock Lindsay, but she did star in a movie that is one of my favorites, Mean Girls. Say what you will about it, but I love that movie so fiercly it might as well be my baby bearcub (if I were a full grown lady bear). For her role as Kady, I will always have a special place in my heart for her. Even though she is one of the more boring characters. But you know, Tina Fey saw something in her and Tina is not somebody that I will question.
But come on.
I did see Labour Pains.
If the viewing of that movie doesn’t give me license to scoff, I don’t know what will.
(Honestly people, see it, because it is way worth it. But please, make sure that you are either severly hung over or intoxicated when you do.)
And on that note, I leave you with perhaps, a glimpse of the new generation?
