Photographers Confused Debbie Harry for Lindsay Lohan

The whole story is pretty much up there in the headline, but let me just flesh it out a little so we can enjoy it a bit more. Debbie Harry is the frontwoman of Blondie. She’s a lady who enjoys fine wigs and Journey covers. She is also 66 years old. Lindsay Lohan on the other hand, is … well, I’m sure you guys know all there is to know about Lindsay, who is, by the way, 25 years old. Really.

Here’s the story of how it happened:

Photographers were camped outside the Mercer Hotel in New York on Sunday waiting for an anticipated exit from Lindsay Lohan who had hosted Saturday Night Live the night before.

Little did they know, another famous blonde was also staying there.

When Blondie singer Debbie Harry exited the hotel, covered up with a hoodie and shades (looking pretty fantastic for her age, BTW), cameras started snapping away thinking it was actually Lohan. Yes, she’s 66 years old, but we gotta admit—whether it was the platinum hair or the similar smile, Harry looked a lot like 25-year-old Lohan.

Splash photogs told E! News that they were aware it was Harry from the start, and believe that the other photographers did not realize they were taking shots of the wrong person until after a few frames, but also mentioned, “Debbie bore a striking resemblance, albeit older, to the young starlet.”

So what is this, a compliment to Debbie Harry? An insult to Lindsay Lohan? Or just more proof that Lindsay needs to lay off the drugs and the plastic surgery before her face just melts off and Dina has to step in as her body double. I mean, I did say they looked like twinsies recently.

Meanwhile, how fabulous does Debbie Harry look?

Debbie Harry Has Been Rocking a Ton of Wigs Lately

So I was very quickly skimming this Daily Mail article about how Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s marriage is already dunzo, and that is how I scrolled right down to a hot photo of Debbie Harry. You know, the frontwoman of Blondie? (Ugh, kids these days.)

And I wondered what exactly Deborah Harry had changed about her appearance—I mean, the woman has never looked bad, per se, but here she looked really good—and it slowly dawned on me that I was actually admiring the cut on her asymmetrical, albinism-white wig. Like, this is totally a Lady Gaga wig.

And 66-year-old (!!) Harry is not afraid to change it up: in the last month or so, she has worn her locks, real and faux, tens of ways. And! Sometimes when her real hair isn’t working out, she’s just like, “Screw it,” and she puts on a hoodie or a hat.

I have assembled a gallery of Debbie Harry’s myriad looks from the last year (below) so that we might all marvel at this Rock Icon’s ferocity.

This Is A Piece Of My Heart I Didn’t Even Know I Was Missing

Elton John, Lady Gaga, Sting, Debbie Harry, Shirley Bassey, and Bruce Springsteen sang “Don’t Stop Believin’.”  At the same time.  And it was amazing.

These moments of magic happened on Thursday night at Carnegie Hall as a finale to Sting’s annual benefit to raise money for the rainforests, which just adds to the awesome.  Somebody in the audience caught a shaky, not-so-excellent-quality video, but that person should get a medal or at least a certificate for documenting this monumental moment in history.

I may not be a Lady Gaga fan, but Elton John and Sting?  Come on. Just check Elton John out in that video and you will see that he is the undeniable king of beautiful songs and rose-tinted glasses.
