Writing about Lindsay Lohan causing a scene at a bar or club seems very 2010. But here we are. Lindsay, now a proud resident of Manhattan's own SoHo neighborhood, caused a ruckus at a bar last night. The karaoke bar where she partied it up became seriously annoyed when she straight-up refused to leave when the time came for them to shut their doors.
So what did she do? Sigh and walk away? Nope. She invited her friends to keep chugging their vodka and called the police on the folks running the club. That's right. If you invite Lindsay Lohan over to your house and she doesn't want to leave? She will call the cops should you try to make her. Of course, she seems not to have been drinking -- but seriously, surrounding yourself with these sort of friends and hanging out at places like this? Recipe. For. Relapse.
Since open letters are totally a thing now (see: Sinead O'Connor to Miley Cyrus), I have decided to pen one to Lindsay. In the spirit of support. If life were a movie, she would be Demi Moore and I would be Whoopi Goldberg and that movie would be Ghost. Who, exactly, is Patrick Swayze remains unclear.
You are killing me! There's only so many times you can behave like an unbearable brat (even if you're sober) before you lose every last fan you have! I mean, Mean Girls was good -- but you can't coast on that noise forever.
There is no question in my mind that you are talented. You're also beautiful. But watching you work so hard to beat your demons and regain your audience's trust has been tooooough. I know that being sober isn't a laugh. But if you are bored in New York, there are no end of things you can do other than harass a small-time karaoke bar and its employees.
Night on the town? Let me introduce you to a little thing I like to call a book club. Night in more your speed? Call me, man. We can eat microwave popcorn and speculate as to what my cats are thinking. Just like, maybe start treating others with respect and don't fall back when you've worked so hard to move forward.
Do you think this was a one-off or that Lindsay is doomed to backtrack?
