Lindsay Lohan is back in the news again, but no need to worry, refugees of the world who are simply walking the streets with your own children, she’s not here for you. …This time… Lindsay is making headlines after her team of people (which might be just Dina Lohan using several different e-mail addresses) have been out there trying to earn her a solid check for an endorsement. And where was Lindsay’s “team” out looking? Duh: Facebook. (This is why.) Screw the insider sources, screw a carefully curated group of important industry connections; Lindsay is going old school.
Page Six reports that a rep for Lindsay searched their brain for a great way to help their boss and found themselves on a Facebook group for publicists and marketers.
Lindsay’s people wrote that those in the group who are interested should “reach out if you rep a brand that is interested in endorsement opportunities with Lindsay.” Lindsay’s people are under the impression that the year is 2004 and Mean Girls references are flooding the youth of America like sex and alcohol. They wrote in their message that “acceptable brands include: fashion, beauty, car, lifestyle, CPG, fitness/lifestyle, food/drinks, entertainment/media, tech. Must have a substantial budget.”
So not only does Lindsay’s team think she’s too good for certain brands (this is rich from the trick who sells you Lawyer.com!), she also thinks that she can command a large pay check! Guess what the response was to Lindsay’s demands? It was terrible. She got a grand total of three responses, which is three more than the number of movies Lindsay has done in the last few years. Well, technically she got two responses because one of the responses was just a person alerting a New York Post reporter to the embarrassment. The other two were industry-types asking what Lindsay was talking about when her team used the term “substantial”.
Lindsay’s rep was too busy fielding all their Facebook messages to get back to Page Six with a comment.
Seriously, a check is a check, and using Facebook to get gigs isn’t such a bad idea. Jennifer Aniston‘s people used that Facebook group to get Eyelove. Taylor Swift? She also has to use the Facebook group, people don’t just call her asking if they can pay her for her time and image. George Clooney? If he didn’t use that Facebook group he would never have gotten Nespresso (I’m not really joking about that, honestly).
