Here’s Lindsay filming Ugly Betty in Central Park.
Apparently inviting photogs to constantly shoot her on the job was the image-reform idea of her new manager, Jeni Muro, who seems to be working wonders for this young woman who is, by anyone’s measure, back on the rise. We see photos of Lindsay doing work now way more often than we see her leaving the clubs. Amazing!
Ha, maybe all Lindsay really needed was to give Mama Dina the boot as manager. She should wear a sign that says “Lindsay Lohan: Now Under New Management!”
Another day, another slew of photos from New York Fashion Week.
In this episode: Lauren Conrad, Lo Bosworth, Jessica Alba, Ivana Trump, Blake Lively, Bette Midler, Julia Stiles, Petra Nemcova, Zoe Saldana, Joy Bryant, Perry Reeves, Barbara Bush, Mary-Kate Olsen, Cory Kennedy, Natasha Lyonne, Anna Wintour, Jennifer Lopez and many, many more.
You may or may not have heard something about this “Presidential election” we’re having here in the good ol’ US of A pretty soon now — November 4, to be exact. It’s kind of a big deal.
Anyway, I’d just like to take this opportunity to issue a friendly reminder that leaving scathing comments on gossip blogs will not actually effect a change in national leadership. You have to vote.
And, in order to vote, you have to be registered to vote. Note that the deadline to register is WELL BEFORE the election in most states — in fact, the deadline is coming up in less than a month in many states. See the full list here to find out when the deadline is in your state.
In some states, you can register online to vote. For instance, I was able to use my Washington drivers license to register online to vote at this website. Do a quick Google check to see if your state offers something similar.
If not, MTV’s Rock the Vote has been kind enough to help you prepare your voter registration form here. Just answer their simple questions and follow the instructions to mail your registration form to your state. It only takes a few minutes!
Voting is important, yes, but first you have to be REGISTERED TO VOTE.
If you haven’t done it yet, GET REGISTERED!
You can bitch and moan and whine and type to your little hearts’ content, but none of it matters if you don’t actually get your ass to the polls on November 4.
Once again, I don’t care who you’re voting for, you gotta watch this interview with Matt Damon, where he makes the point that, well, he’s done the actuary tables (really?) and determined that John McCain has a one in three chance of kicking the bucket at some point during the next four years. This will put, as he so eloquently phrases it, a hockey mom from Alaska “facing down Vladimir Putin … using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink.”
He also said that he doesn’t “understand why more people aren’t talking about how absurd it is.”
Are you living in this country right now?
We don’t really talk about much besides Sarah Palin these days.
I have some campaign suggestions for Barack Obama. If you want to take some of the steam out of the McCain engine, stop wasting your breath trying to discredit the woman politically and just give Lindsay Lohan an eight-ball. Sit Nicole Richie down for a few shots of tequila and make sure she has the keys to her car. Get Mary-Kate Olsen some quality time with Benji Madden. Steal all of Britney Spears’ underwear.
For Christsake, give us anything else to talk about right now.
Lynne Spears’ literary tour de force, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, hits bookshelves next week, but there’s one important person who hasn’t read it: Britney Spears.
She says Britney and Bryan have yet to read it, but “Jamie Lynn loved the book. I started to cry because I told her, ‘I wanted so much for you to like it.’ And she got up and kissed me on the cheek and said, ‘Mama, thank you so much.’”
Oh, come on. We all know they were both crying because Jamie-Lynn finally learned how to read. And Jamie-Lynn was thanking her for using small words that she could sound out easily.
And Britney hasn’t read it because the genre of celebrity tell-alls is still a little bit above her head. It’s like asking a kindergartner to tell you what he thought of Infinite Jest. He’s just going to smile and dance and fart in response. Not even worth trying.
