La Lohan Lowdown
We used to have reoccurring segment on EBUZZ called "La Lohan Lowdown". Because it was so fun, and because Linds has been getting a lot of media attention lately, I've decided to resurrect it on the blog.
Lindsay has been milking her post Samantha Ronson breakup for all it's worth. Which makes me wonder: How much of the timing of the breakup had to do with publicity reasons? Lohan's career had been in the toilet (her latest feature is being shown for the first time on ABC Family), this has been the perfect opportunity for her to light a fire under her celebrity status. For the first time in a long time she's on talk shows NOT defending a night of binge drinking, but rather attempting to gain sympathy for a broken homosexual relationship. I'm not sure any publicist in their right mind would have planned such an event, but given Lindsay's history you have to work with what you're given. And this set of circumstances is more favorable than most regarding the former teen queen.
At the end of the day I have no sympathy whatsoever for Lohan. Breakups are rough, I get that. But to then go publicly bash your ex and take details of your relationship to the presses just isn't right. Lindsay should have taken a lesson form Miley and Kevin or Taylor and Joe...private breakups are the classier thing to do. You can make your millions from them AFTER you release a hit song in their honor ("7 Things", "Goodbye", all of Taylor's recent hits).
