NYMag recently asked themselves the age old question of “How can I trick Lindsay Lohan into getting naked?” The answer was glaringly obvious. Prey on her need for attention, but mask it as something artsy like a tribute to Marilyn Monroe. What does Lindsay Lohan have in common with Marilyn Monroe? Very little actually. They both have/had a drug problem and big boobs. That’s about it. NYMag says,
Shot at the Hotel Bel-Air on February 5, the photos of Lohan as Monroe duplicate the 1962 originals down to the lighting, the shellacked blonde wig Lohan wears, and her willingness to appear in little more than a chiffon scarf. Regarding the nudity, Lohan tells the magazine: “I was comfortable with it,” though she confesses to having done “250 crunches” the night before the shoot. Lohan sees the Monroe photos (and by extension her own) as a way of regaining power: “Here is a woman who is giving herself to the public. She’s saying, ‘Look, you’ve taken a lot from me, so why don’t I give it to you myself.’ She’s taking control back.”
How very… what’s the word I’m looking for? Empowering? No. Retarded? Yes, that’s it. Retarded. Note that when Marilyn Monroe did this, it was called “The Last Sitting” because she died six weeks later of an overdose. Bad for Lindsay. Good for me. If it wasn’t for easily duped girls like her, I’d probably never see boob. Check out the rest here.
