It’s been at least six hours since I’ve reported or thought about Lindsay Lohan so my internal bell is going off like crazy.
Luckily I have not one, but TWO Lohan related stories to impart to you today.
First off, Kelly Clarkson was approached by her record label to cover a Lindsay Lohan song. Now if that’s not a bad sign for your career I don’t know what is. I mean, it’s not like Lohan has set the pop charts on fire has she?
“My label literally sent me a Lindsay Lohan track from her last album and wanted me to record it for my new album,” Clarkson, 25, tells MTV News.
I’m not a Clarkson fan (too much Guarini in me for that) but I can see Kelly’s point here. She’s already really toeing the line as far as street cred goes, I can’t imagine the fun DJs would have had with her covering a LL song. Oh wait, I can imagine. It’s a lot of fun they would have been having. Kelly wisely vetoed the notion.
Next up, Lindsay Lohan has topped Maxim’s Hot 100. This is certainly good news for her career as it again proves just how seriously people take her looks, body, et al. One funny blurb about the list:
Ashley Olsen, half of the mogul acting twins, placed 37th, while sister Mary-Kate didn’t make the cut.
Nice! Mary-Kate, you are well on your way to being that other Hilton sister. Which, all things considered, is not a bad thing at all.
See you in a few hours Lindsay!

That’s right, Lindsay. You can kiss away your film career.
Herbie, Prairie Home Companion, Just My Luck, Bobby and now this. Audiences like to see your vagina these days, Linds, not your acting.

At the grand opening of The Cove Atlantis in the Bahamas. DJ Lohan on the mic, yo. You know, if I’m ever a DJ, I think I’m going to go by DJ Tanner.

The camera did not love Miss Lohan at yesterday’s Nylon Magazine party at Tenjeune in NYC, which she hosted. The typically camera-lovin’ Linds looks awful in almost all these shots. What on earth could distract Lindsay Lohan from posing on the red carpet? Perhaps she was grumpy because her current sorta-boyfriend, British model Callum Best, was there, as well as her rumored lesbian love, DJ Samantha Ronson. Awwwwwwwwkward.

Gary Marshall is a hack director. He’s cashed in on directing Pretty Woman for the last 17 years. Or maybe those fresh episodes of Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley he wrote back in the 70′s somehow guaranteed him a full career. And his new movie, Georgia Rule, is seriously screwed up – and it’s most likely due to the tone he took. They should have called it “Molestation Hilarity” because that’s the vibe he clearly was shooting for.
Here’s how Marshall framed the incident:
“Once somebody walks on my set, it’s my problem, but we can’t go chasing them, this film is low-budget. We can’t lose days. … Tough love is a part of this business â€“ she missed a day on the second week of shooting.”
On the surface this seems to be a fairly professional business interaction. Except for one tiny detail. It was only the second week of shooting. She couldn’t have missed multiple days or that would have been mentioned. And was she not available via cell phone to be scolded? Could he not have gone to her trailer the next day for clarification on what was up? The letter mentions she was “late” a few times too. How late? My guess is a few minutes or I’m sure they would have mentioned “hours.”
“Jim wrote the memo, and she came the next day and we were fine,” Marshall said.
What a jerk-off. I’m the last one to defend Lohan, and she legitimately missed a day of work, but the furor this caused was nothing more than a publicity stunt for a movie without an audience. Lindsay got sacrificed on the altar of some old fogey needing a hit movie. And now, by bringing this up again, you are trying another PR stunt. You leaked the letter and you’ve kept the hype going. You’ve made a mockery of your “art.” Most directors would say something to the effect of “Hey, the movie is great and I’m very protective of my actors so I don’t want to talk about it further. What happened is a private manner between colleagues.” But Gary couldn’t do that, could he?
Yes, Lindsay should tone down the partying and be at work on time, every time. But the true way to handle this was in person. And if it happened again, then you start with the escalation. The film was financed by goddamn Universal Pictures, I’m sure they were able to cover a day of extra shooting for Gary.
Egh. I hate you Marshall, and when your film makes $32 dollars at the box office I will laugh at you. I may even point my finger in a derisive manner.

This movie Georgia Rule comes out Friday and it’s very odd. It will make around $40 at the box office because the masses are still lining up to see Spidey but I thought I’d mention it anyway (as sort of a community service).
It’s sort of about molestation. Yet it tries to be funny most of the time. Exactly.
It is from the guy who directed Pretty Woman, where it was completely glossed over that Julia Roberts sold her body for money, so I guess I get the ambition. They thought they could get away with this strangeness.
But they didn’t. Lohan is sometimes good, sometimes bad, and her stardom is still way more based on her lady business than it his her skills.
Wonder how long that can last?
Oh, one more thing, despite how the picture looks Jane Fonda’s floating head isn’t a focal point of the film.
