Just in case Lindsay Lohan winds up dead...
Lindsay Lohan and whoever is supposed to be looking after her apparently think it will elevate her iconic status (or at least make her seem employable) by having her pose nude in an imitation of Marilyn Monroe's famous photo session with Bert Stern. But we have to wonder who's getting the most glee from the fact that the troubled young actress is recreating Marilyn Monroe's last sitting... and that six weeks after the session... Marilyn was dead???
We know the New York magazine editors are tickled to have the memento of a freckled 21-year-old who looks as hardened and burnt-out as Marilyn did at 36. But what about her post-rehab team? Do they think their girl would be worth more money if she was in Heath Ledger territory? Why the death imagery?
C'mon, Daddy. Time to walk the walk.
