Lindsay Lohan - A Little More Personal (Raw) Appreciation Thread
Lindsay Lohan is finally trending on Twitter: but probably not in the way she'd hope.
The 31 year old onetime child star is back in the headlines after taking to her Instagram story earlier today to defend Harvey Weinstein. You know, the ex-Hollywood executive accused of sexually harassing and/or assaulting dozens of women.
She started off her speech innocently enough. "Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan. I’m in Dubai. I’m home," she begins, speaking in her infamously stilted accent. "I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on."
"He’s never harmed me or did anything to me. We’ve done several movies together," she continued, referring to the Weinstein productions Bobby and Scary Movie 5, both of which she appeared in. "I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So, stand up.”
If you happened to have been living under a rock for the past week or so: allegations about Weinstein were first published in The New York Times by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey. According to the two authors, Weinstein had been sexually harassing, and subsequently paying settlements, to a multitude of women over the past three decades.
Since then, accusations about Weinstein have been overflowing out of Hollywood, the sign of many years of pent up secrets. Over thirty women of varying reputation and status have come forward to voice their experiences, including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan and Cara Delevigne.
As a result, Weinstein has been fired from the board of his production company, The Weinstein Company, by his own brother; has been divorced by his wife of ten years, Georgina Chapman; has been suspended from the BAFTA organisation; and has been shamed by Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama, both of whom he has donated money to.
Lohan is the first celebrity to publicly defend Weinstein, although Donald Trump has stated that he is "not surprised" about the allegations.
Remember the days when Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff, and Paris Hilton were the most talked about stars in Hollywood? Even though Lindsay's social life has stayed out of the tabloids in recent years, the actress and onetime singer Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter to tease new music. The star posted the following Tweet:
Lindsay has generally avoided the topic of new music in her recent interviews, however she at one time admitted that she has still one album to make to fulfil her record deal with Casablanca Records.
Her last album A Little More Personal (RAW) was released in 2005 and gave us the iconic and heartbreaking pop-rock song 'Confessions Of a Broken Heart (Daughter To Father)'. Even though the album was amazing, it flopped on the charts. To this day it is considered one of the most underrated dark pop masterpieces.
The singer later released a song called 'Bossy' in 2007, teasing her probable comeback. However, the single was meant to promote project, known to her fans as Spirit In The Dark, was never fully released and only a few songs from those sessions have leaked onto the web.
Her fans are extremely hungry for new music from her as it was twelve years since her last album saw the light of the day. We are rooting for you, Lindsay! Remember to ReTweet her and help to make it happen!
Sick Note is an upcoming English TV show starring Rupert Grint (aka Ronald Weasley) and Nick Frost (aka the fat English guy in a bunch of movies). The show is about a man who believes he has an incurable disease and receives positive attention at work for having it; but when he finds out that he is not sick at all, he keeps up the ruse to maintain the special treatment.
The show is set to debut later this year, but executives were apparently so impressed with the show's performance that they've ordered a second season before the first has even aired. In good news for Lindsay Lohan fans, it seems that she's been cast as the daughter of Don Johnson's character, who is Rupert Grint's characters boss. It's speculated that Lindsay may play a romantic lead in the show, although we're not yet 100% sure if she has a guest, recurring or regular role.
Are you excited to see Lindsay's first big foray into TV? Let us know your thoughts and if you're gonna check Sick Note out below!
