Elton John wrote a song about Lindsay Lohan, and thankfully it wasn’t yet another reworked version of Candle In The Wind (Lohan wishes!). The song is “The Diving Board” and was inspired by Lohan’s ~~turbulent~~ life.
It could be a summation of my career because it’s about young people becoming successful and diving off into the unknown. What’s going to happen? Are they going to survive it? Are they going to become victims of their own success? Are other people going to prey on them and destroy them?
You could actually say it’s about me, but I was thinking about Lindsay Lohan when I was writing it.
I hate to think of Lindsay because she has a talent, she was a great actress, and then it became all about the madness, the parties and everyone forgets about what put them there in the first place – they get lost in the idea that they are famous for who they are, not what they are.
Oh yes, let’s all cry a river for Lindsay Lohan. He’s making it sound like someone did something to her. Everything she did, she did it to herself. Please tell me Bernie Taupin wasn’t involved in this mess.
I wonder if he’ll do a song about Chris Brown, since they’re such BFFs.

Lindsay Lohan went to support her sister Ali who was modeling in Wendy Nichol’s “Saints of the Zodiac” fall fashion show. That was nice. However, she showed up in some sort of Stevie Nicks Xanadu nightmare. Not as nice. Dude behind her definitely approves though.
The headband is so very Mischa! And here’s what Ali wore in the show:
Hey, as long as Ali’s not doing this anymore, I support her career. As for Lohan, I guess she dressed in the theme? Except you’re not one of the models, dude. I don’t know, am I being too harsh? What do you think of Lindsay’s look?
What a week it’s been. We came off of She Who Must Not Be Named and all other kinds of hot mess outfits at the VMAs and ended with Daniel Radcliffe doing this (above). A lot going on. Here are the best, worst, and WTF celebrity looks of the week — end of August.

Lindsay “300 Strikes And You’re Out” Lohan has been doing pretty well since she got out of rehab for the millionth time. She got paid $2 million for an interview with Oprah (that no one watched) as well as a “docuseries.” She hosted an episode of Chelsea Lately and shot a guest appearance on the TV show Eastbound & Down. She got good reviews — the only good reviews — for the crapfest known as The Canyons. There’s even rumors that she’ll host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
So I guess since everything’s coming up Lohan, Lohan’s striking while the iron is hot by trying to get Meryl Streep‘s attention. Lohan and Ms. Streep actually starred in a film together way back in 2006, A Prairie Home Companion. That’s 7 years ago in normal people time, fourteen in Lohan years. Yesterday Lohan posted their 2006 photoshoot for Entertainment Weekly on her Instagram with #tbt. TBT stands for “throwback Thursday.” The context makes sense but still, girl. Kinda desperate.
My favorite comment is “lol wut”.
Lindsay Lohan sat down with Oprah and told her she checked into rehab for the very first time because she used Ambien and it scared her (to which Oprah gave the most skeptical look ever and tried get more of an explanation and gave up) and also that she did cocaine “Ten to fifteen times” to which everyone torrenting this mess laughed mightily. I guess a lot of people at this point are fed up with Lohan, because the interview was one of Oprah’s lowest rated interviews, ever. Some stats from The Hollywood Reporter via The Superficial:
The one-hour OWN broadcast averaged 892,000 viewers to the 9 p.m. premiere telecast. The 10 p.m. encore averaged 504,000 viewers.
Now let’s compare that to
Winfrey’s Oprah’s Next Chapter sit-down with Whitney Houston’s family in March 2012 is still OWN’s most-watched effort for the network, drawing 3.5 million viewers. The first part of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong’s January interview with Winfrey is close behind with a strong 3.2 million. Third is Rihanna’s interview with the talk show maven in August 2012, which averaged 2.5 million.
Let’s hope the “docu-series” they’re doing together gets better ratings. Or not, screw them.
Lindsay Lohan‘s big Oprah interview aired last night and the lies flowed like chocolate out of Wonka’s factory. My favorite part was when she said (via Gossip Cop) she’s done cocaine “10 to 15 times.”
Yes, that’s a lot closer to the truth than what she told Piers Morgan (“only 5 times.“) But come on now. Let’s do some basic math. Lindsay Lohan is 27. Let’s say she didn’t start doing drugs until she was 20, which is way generous. That means in 7 years she’s only done cocaine 15 times, tops? Maybe 15 times in 1 week. Come on, Lohan.
She also claimed that she “kind of wanted” to go to jail (Gossip Cop).
Lindsay Lohan must have been REALLY bored in rehab, because she threw an unofficial Lindsay Lohan film festival. Allegedly, she watched some of her films and brought in an audience. An unwilling one. From Earsucker:
During her 60 day stay at the Cliffside Rehab Center in Malibu, not only did Lindsay Lohan watch all of her own movies for entertainment, she made the other patients watch alongside her.
A source revealed, “There was more than once when Lindsay would rent or buy a movie on iTunes that she’d starred in. She basically forced me to watch that crappy movie ‘I Know Who Killed Me’ with her, the one where she plays a stripper.”
The source added, “She’s such an attention seeker that she didn’t think it was weird at all to watch her own movies. Everyone else thought it was really embarrassing of her to do that! But whatever. It was like she was trying to relive a time when she was actually a working actress.”
Oh. Now I feel sad. I picture her as Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood in full vampire cape (or in her case, I guess she would be wearing her stripper outfit) watching her scenes over and over, saying her lines out loud in unison with the film, eyebrow cocked.
