Bret Easton Ellis, novelist (Less Than Zero, American Psycho) wrote the screenplay for the suckfest known as The Canyons, and he’s blaming Lindsay Lohan for its suckage. He’s not saying that she was bad in it. He’s saying that the problem is, basically, that she even existed. Here’s what he said on his podcast, via Radar:
I think where we went wrong was with the casting of Lindsay Lohan. Now I don’t mean she wasn’t good in it, she was very good in the movie. I mean that suddenly The Canyons has become the Lindsay Lohan film.
And Lindsay’s reputation followers her everywhere. And the moment that we casted Lindsay Lohan, the movie became something else. It stopped becoming the DIY movie that could make it into part of the trainwreck of the Lindsay Lohan narrative. And we thought the movie was ultimately going to step out of that shadow, that it was going to speak for itself and that people would be more interested in how we made this movie… But we didn’t. We didn’t step out of the Lindsay Lohan shadow, and it did affect the way the movie was perceived.
I think the hatred for the movie when it initially came out was so disproportionate to what the movie actually was… I think at a certain point, people were rooting for the movie to fail. And I think that’s why when the movie was eventually released, people were gleeful about massacring it.
Dude. Your movie? Sucked. It was like watching a very painful very slow very boring student film. If you’re gonna blame anyone for that, blame director Paul Schrader.
Did you see it? Thoughts?

Lindsay Lohan took a ~~sexy selfie~~ on Instagram of her in her underwear (above). We can’t even see her face, just her bod in lacey boyshorts with the caption, “Goodnight.” Uh, why, Lohan? Why? A “thank you” to Chris Pine, perhaps?
Does anyone find this photo sexy? All I can focus on is how dirty her room looks. Maybe that’s just a poor choice of filter.
Still better than Kim’s ass selfie.
Look, I’m not “slut-shaming” the girl, so don’t even. I’m just questioning why she feels she has to do this.
As for Kim, I couldn’t get into that girl’s head with Google maps.

Chris Pine worked with Lindsay Lohan way back in 2006, her best years. They did the utterly “meh” Just My Luck together. He still believes in her and that she can make a comeback. Here’s what he told Cosmopolitan, via Gossip Cop:
Our business loves comeback stories. From Drew Barrymore to Robert Downey Jr., there’s a long list of people who have faced their troubles, wildly overcome them, and succeeded. If anyone can do that, it’s Lindsay
Okay, Imma need everyone to stop comparing Lindsay Lohan to RDJ Jr., because he has actual, good, consistent talent. So let’s stop that. Now.
What do you think? Can Lohan comeback?

Lindsay Lohan apparently exhibited “insanely belligerent” behavior at a karaoke bar in downtown Manhattan. Sadly, there is no video of any of this (at least none leaked), so if Lohan had a Rihanna karaoke moment, it will have to exist in our imaginations.
Daily News reports that Lohan arrived at Sing Sing Karaoke Bar with “a gaggle” of friends and stayed until almost 6 AM, because she “refused to leave at closing.” (Bars in NYC close at 4 AM.) What in the everloving f-ck, what kind of management doesn’t have the balls or brains to kick Lindsay Lohan out of their bar at closing time? Here are some quotes about the enchanted evening from a source who was there. From Daily News:
Lindsay was chain-smoking. She walked in sober and she left looking tired.
It gets better (or worse, depending on your POV). When Lindsay was asked to leave, she called the police! She told them, “staffers had locked her in the private karaoke room. The NYPD showed up, but no one bothered to file a report. When Lohan and the group finally left, staffers found their private karaoke room littered with trash and empty bottles.”
Apparently she returned the next day with a friend, to apologize.
GET. IT. TOGETHER. LOHAN. JESUS. CHRIST. OPRAH. WILL. FIRE. YOU.

Lindsay Lohan got a new tattoo, but hasn’t revealed what it is, so place your bets now — is it going to be be another Marilyn Monroe quote? Or another Shakespeare quote? She’s got 2 Marilyn quotes, one is “Stars, all we ask for is our right to twinkle” (which I don’t think Marilyn ever actually said), and also has this terrible Shakespearean mess:
Who the hell did that? The letters are bleeding and they’re not even straight and that triangle is just yikes. So hopefully the image that she instagrammed (above) of her tattoo-to-be is a lot better. Your move, stalker sister. Your move.

Lindsay Lohan was a Mean Girl when she publicly outed her brother on Tinder. Tinder is a dating app and Lohan’s bro, Michael, was on it. And call is sisterly love or weird possessiveness or just silliness but she posted on her instagram a photo of Michael’s profile (above) with,
look who I just found on @tinderapp … hey bro
“Hey bro” indeed. E Online points out that in order for Lohan to see this, she herself had to be on Tinder. So, uh, “hey” to you, Lindsay! And I guess this means we won’t be seeing Lohan’s siblings on her Oprah show either. Too bad she didn’t humiliate her stalkerish stepsister.
Are YOU on Tinder? How you finding it?
