Lindsay Lohan Wasn’t In The Mood To Talk About That Syrian Refugee “Kidnapping” Video For Her Paper Magazine Interview
Don’t let the new reality show or this high profile Paper Magazine “Break the Internet” profile fool you. Lindsay Lohan is still a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto of a mess. If she thought giving this stingy interview was supposed baptize her anew in the public eye, then she’s still as vapid, vain, and oblivious as ever. The full title of the piece is Princess Charming: Inside Lindsay Lohan’s Enduring Cult of Celebrity, and I guess it’s an apt title is you consider that Lindsay lives in Dubai, surrounded by Saudi princes (a detail eagerly provided by her kid sister, Ali Lohan), completely shut off (by choice) from the real world where people are held accountable for their actions. If that’s what they meant by princess, then sure.

It’s clear that Lindsay is doing this solely for the purpose of promoting her shit; both her “family friendly” Mykonos beach resort (Linds says “it’s not just a party thing; you can have a nice lunch.“) and her reality show now titled Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.
It’s also clear from what’s included here (like the fact that she arrived on-time for the photo shoot; we know because her assistant insisted that info be included in the piece) and what’s left unanswered (attempted kidnapping), that Lindsay has no interest in anything other than securing her nut and being adored.
Lindsay does a lot of whining about how she “could do 99 things right and one thing wrong, but it’s that one thing that will be focused on”, which in common parlance means that attempted kidnapping is Bradley Cooper and showing up to work on time is some dude who doesn’t think Lady Gaga is anything special. By that logic, a movie called A Star Is Overlooked should be in contention for a lot of awards this season. Apparently Lindsay was going to talk about the kidnapping attempt where she accosted a Syrian family on the streets, but she was never in the right “mood”.
Lohan and I exchange a friendly wave as she glides by me dressed as a barefooted Cinderella, and I’m told we’ll speak as soon as her mood is right. But when the shoot wraps nine hours later, Lohan, sitting in a nearby makeup chair on her phone, is too tired to speak. Regarding the incident with the family, she offers later through a rep over email: “I read the situation wrong. I’ve learned from it. And that’s all I have to say.”
Lindsay also lamented about missing out on work (apparently, “all she ever wanted was work”) because she was forced into treatment.
“That was kind of taken away from me for a while, when I was going through a lot. I was spending money on going to treatment centers because the court was making me. It was hard for me to continue working, because when would I even find the time?”
I hope at least she got a discount for only having to do 1 step instead of all 12. But none of that matters, she’s now living a healthy, apolitical life in Dubai. According to her, politics are “not that much of a thing” there.
People don’t emphasize negativity.” Instead, she says, the city is a “health-conscious place” that “promotes positivity and a positive attitude.
As proof of her positive attitude, Lindsay is still positive she should star as Ariel in The Little Mermaid. I guess when you’re surrounded by positive people, in this case a bunch of rich, old Arab men who smile and nod at whatever she says, anything is possible!
