Is Lindsay Lohan Going To Jail? Like, For Real This Time?

lindsay lohan

Remember when Lindsay Lohan tried to bullshit a judge by claiming that she did all of her court-ordered community service at the very last second by doing things like greeting fans after her shitty play in London’s West End? Most people with half a brain were all like, “Huh?” Thankfully, the judge ordered her to redo 125 of those hours, and as of today, she’s only done 10 of those hours. That means she’s got 115 hours of community service left to do… by the deadline of May 28. LOL!

From The AP:

Judge Mark Young said Thursday he was concerned the actress had completed fewer than 10 hours of service over three years.

Lohan is on probation for a 2012 reckless driving case filed after she crashed her sports car in Santa Monica on her way to a film shoot.

Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Holley says the “Mean Girls” star will move from London to complete about 115 remaining hours of service working with kids in New York.

Santa Monica city prosecutor Melanie Skehar was skeptical Lohan could pull off the feat by May 28.

Skehar says her office will be seeking jail time if Lohan fails.

Lohan was not required to attend Thursday’s hearing.

There are literally a little more than 2 weeks left before the deadline, which means that Lindsay would literally have to do more than 40 hours a week if she wants a shot in hell in getting it done. Will she? Of course not. Will she actually go to jail? Doubtful.

But listen to this! Apparently even the 10 hours Lindsay did were bullshit, according to TMZ:

As we reported, Lindsay has completed less than 10 of her 125 community service hours, and now we found out even the 10 hours are suspect.

We looked over some court docs, Lindsay got credit for organizing and posting pics on the Facebook page of the London-based community service org. Here’s the problem … a staff member gave Lindsay a memory stick, which allowed her to do the work in the comfort of her apartment.

It’s unclear whether Lindsay really posted the pics or whether it was just left to her assistant, but when the head honcho of the community service place found out Lindsay worked from home, she wrote an apology for the screw up to the judge.

How is this a real thing? What the hell kinda bullshit staff member gives someone doing COMMUNITY SERVICE the availability to do work UNSUPERVISED at home, meaning she can easily pass the task off and not do it at all, which is clearly what happened? Make this girl clean toilets or some shit, for God’s sake.

Adam Levine Got Sugar-Bombed :(

I know this story is from early yesterday, but it’s good enough to still get plenty of mileage today, too. Adam Levine, he of Maroon 5 fame, was headed to Jimmy Kimmel‘s Hollywood studio this week when someone sugar bombed him on his way in.

Adam was busy greeting fans at the time the dude struck, and it’s unclear what is motive was. Maybe he was being topical, given the band’s latest single? Security took him away soon after, but Adam looked none too pleased with the “attack”. Ah, well. He lived!

Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin Are “Happier Than Ever”

To be honest, I’m not really sure what to make of claims that Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin are “happier than ever”, considering the last thing we heard is that they broke up weeks after getting together. I mean, sure, they’d had dinner together since, but there doesn’t seem to be much of an actual romance there… OR IS THERE?

Since the Hunger Games star returned to Los Angeles from Massachusetts after two months of shooting the upcoming biopic Joy, she and the Coldplay rocker have been “happier than ever,” a source close to Lawrence tells PEOPLE in the magazine’s new issue. “They have been spending a lot of time together.” 

Aside from getting together for “quality time,” the low-key couple – who were last spotted publicly in New York City over Easter weekend – have also spent time with their pals. “He’s made an effort to get to know her friends,” says the source. 

The singer, who finalized his divorce from ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, last month, “is romantic and thoughtful,” says the source. “He always makes Jen feel beautiful.” 

Frankly, I’ve always been a fan of this coupling, but if there is indeed a relationship going on there, I don’t think it’s a very serious one, nor is it one that’s going to last for very long. Especially considering that Gwyneth is keeping a vice grip on the situation. Obviously they have kids together and will always co-parent, but for some reason, I feel like JLaw isn’t quite refined enough to be around Apple and Moses for Gwyn’s taste. Maybe I’m wrong, and I HOPE I AM, but I’d say they’ll be parting ways again soon.

Jared Leto as The Joker – First Pictures

Because I don’t keep up with these things, it was a surprise to me to learn that Jared Leto is playing The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. But he is! It’s all happening! And now we have what appear to be “first look” pictures, not only of Jared on set in some amount of makeup, as seen above, but also a grainy picture of him holding a picture of himself in what might be full makeup, even though you can’t really make it out clearly since this picture was likely taken from like 3 blocks away with an extreme zoom lens.

What do we think, then? Will Jared do it justice? It’s a pretty iconic role, after all.

Grace & Frankie is about to be your new favorite show

grace & frankie

Yeah, yeah, there are a lot of TV trailers today – deal with it, they’re all coming out these past few days. This one is a bit different, however, since it’s not for an established show but rather a new one. Netflix has released a preview of their upcoming original series Grace & Frankie, which has an amazing cast but is probably aimed more towards the 50+ age group than the youngins’. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that, though – retirees gotta watch TV too, and frankly, I’ll probably check out at least the first episode myself.

Grace & Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as friends whose husbands, played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson, leave the women… to marry each other. The series follows the lives of the four after this fact, and it looks pretty funny. Also, it’s nice to see a show like this involving people in an atypical age group, frankly.

Frances Bean Cobain doesn’t like Nirvana or think Kurt was a hero

frances bean cobain

Frances Bean Cobain has seemingly escaped the bullshit that her parents created. She stays out of the spotlight and out of trouble, seems pretty level-headed, isn’t a drug addict… all in all, I’d say she’s doing pretty well, wouldn’t you? Now she’s talking even more sense in a rare Q&A with Rolling Stone, in which she admits that she doesn’t like Nirvana all that much (join the club) and that her father, Kurt Cobain, wasn’t really all that.

Do you remember the first time you heard a Nirvana record – and knowing that was your father? I’ve talked to Sean Lennon about this. He had a few more years with his dad that you did. But for him, the records were a road into understanding his father after he was gone.
I don’t really like Nirvana that much [grins]. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre [laughs]. The grunge scene is not what I’m interested in. But “Territorial Pissings” [on Nevermind] is a fucking great song. And “Dumb” [on In Utero] – I cry every time I hear that song. It’s a stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself – of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation.

“There is, with any great artist, a little manic-ness and insanity. Tropic of Cancer is one of my favorite books. And [author] Henry Miller had this work ethic, where he would get out of bed every day and force himself to write five pages. It taught me that if you do the work, you progress. So many people are content to settle. My dad was exceptionally ambitious. But he had a lot thrown on him, exceeding his ambition. He wanted his band to be successful. But he didn’t want to be the fucking voice of a generation.”

The entire Q&A is worth reading, and Frances does seem pretty chill, if a bit disillusioned, which is to be expected, I suppose, given all she’s been through in her life. I also find it interesting that she refers to her father by his first name rather than just “Dad”. But again, she never really knew him, so I can’t blame her there, either.

Surprise! Barry Manilow got married!

How is it possible that we’ve never written about Barry Manilow here on EBG before today? It seems nearly criminal, but that is indeed the case. But there’s no day like today, especially when we’ve got big news like this: Barry Manilow got married to his longtime manager, Garry Kief.

From People:

“It was a surprise,” a friend of the couple says of the wedding, which was held at Manilow’s Palm Springs, California, home and attended by “20 to 30 guests” who had been told they were attending a “lunch.”

Though the couple chose to keep the wedding completely private and did not sign any official paperwork, Manilow and Kief both wear wedding bands and “are committed to one another and have been for a very long time,” a Manilow source says. “They have a great relationship. Garry has always been there for Barry.”

News of the nuptials may come as a surprise to some Manilow fans, but the source says the “Copacabana” singer has never tried to hide his sexual orientation.

“He’s at a point now where he’s got his career and personal life in a great place and he really doesn’t care what people think,” the source says. “He’s in love and happy.”

Cute! I have to say, I did get a bit of a shock when I saw he got married to a man, but I have no idea why, because OF COURSE Barry Manilow is gay. Duh!

Anyway, Barry is 71 years old, showing you’re never too old to find love. Get it, Barry!
