Lindsay Lohan Looks Beat Down in Braids

Lindsay Lohan headed out to breakfast with a friend yesterday morning and her look was a little more “Native American inspired” than usual. If the girl was still drinking, I’d chalk her brunching wardrobe up to a hangover and no access to a mirror, but considering this is a supposedly clean and sober Lindsay, I can’t imagine what her excuse for this ensemble and concealer-free face is.

Are you digging Lindsay’s braids, or are you thinking that she looks like she just stumbled out of Juniper Creek and in to the West Village?

Say Goodbye to The Lohans …

Wow, that was way more cryptic than I meant it to be.  Really, all I meant was “say goodbye to the Lohans because they’re all dropping the Lohan family name due to the fact that Michael Lohan is a horrible human being and no one, not even his family, wants to be associated with him anymore,” but that wasn’t nearly as pithy.

But anyway, remember when Michael Jr. changed his last name to Cameron?  He apparently inspired his mother and sisters to leave the Lohan name behind as well.  Dina and little Ali are going with Dina’s maiden name of Sullivan, but Lindsay’s going to do something a little different.  Are you ready for it?  Here’s our favorite girl’s new name:

Lindsay.

That’s it.  Just Lindsay.  She doesn’t need a last name because the only people who call her by her full name anymore are judges and prosecutors, and she’s enough of a sweetheart to make arraignments a little more simple.  Well, I’m sure that’s a reason, but here’s the reason that a “family friend” gave:

“So many of the greatest people in showbiz are known by just their first name. Look at Oprah and Beyonce. Now you can add Lindsay to that list.”

That’s ingenious.  I know that when I think of “the greatest people in showbiz,” Lindsay’s at the top of the list.  I think it also works because of the rarity of her name – just like Oprah and Beyonce, not too many people name their kids Lindsay. Another great call by the clan formerly known as the Lohans.

Lindsay Didn’t Take The Plea Deal

I know, it’s disappointing, isn’t it? She was so close to making the right decision by taking the deal in her latest courtroom drama and serving a few months in jail, which would probably mean 19 days due to overcrowding, which would then mean that by summer at the very very latest, she could be back on the streets, doin’ it up the only way she knows how.   But no:

“Ms. Lohan has maintained her innocence from the moment this case was filed and she has never wavered,” her attorney, Shawn Holley, said in a statement to E! News. “Though many advised her to follow the safe route by taking ‘the deal’, the truth is, Ms. Lohan is innocent; she has a strong defense; and we are confident that a jury will listen to the evidence fairly and acquit her.”

The preliminary hearing is on April 22nd, so mark your calendars for the 2011 Lindsay Lohan Court Extravaganza accordingly!
