Lindsay Lohan’s Vanity Fair October 2010

  • Pin it

Magazines love a good tragedy, don’t they? Any kind of media does. Tragedy sells. It’s that Big Brother complex we’ve developed over the years: we’re not happy with fabricated drama (written fiction, movies), we want to witnessed it with our very own eyes. We’re fully allowing reality shows to reign the world.

Lindsay Lohan’s Vanity Fair October 2010 comes right on time, undoubtedly carefully planned by editors and publishers. Lindsay was just released from jail / rehab and she’s planning a rebound for her personal and professional life. Or so we all hope. Because she’s young, she’s pretty and so she deserves it. (the story continues right after the jump with a behind the scenes video)

The shoot took place on a vintage boat originally built for Judy Garland and the Norman Jean Roy pictorial is actually meant to remind us of Grace Kelly. Too bad it doesn’t. All it does it reminding me of is how shallow and money – oriented everything actually is in any kind of media. Lindsay Lohan’s trial and sentence were so much part of the gossip media that it made her a victim of the system more than anything else. She was so tragically drowned down to this swamp of existential whatever mainly by other people and her fame addicted family. That’s what she said. Is it? Is it not? (Vanity Fair via)

I canceled my subscription to VF a long ago, the first time they put her on the cover…

I always buy VF when it’s interesting. I’ve none subscriptions. Only my newspaper. This VF is not interesting. Look at the articles…Jersey Shore? I’ve tried to watch this phenomenon once and quitted after like 10 minutes? So dirty and shallow and whatever…..! As is this. Though I wish Lindsay nothing but good. I do not enjoy someone’s downfall at all………

Adriana all the things that people seem to find of interest and fascinating these days are dirty and shallow like you said, and Vanity Fair is just following so they don’t get left behind.
Lindsay does have talent as an actor but for me she has been given soo many chances that most ordinary women would and will never see in their lifetime. Why does she merit this favour? Because she always plays the victim and I am sick to the back teeth of her and Paris “I thought it was gum” Hilton’s ilk. : P
This issue and the subject are a MASSIVE pass for me.
Way to go mdinah for cancelling your VF subscription! I hope that you told them why you did so! :)

Pop culture is becoming a tad ho hum for me. I too will pass on this issue.
VF seems to be lost between tabloid princess’ escapades, nostalgia for the G.O.D & serious journalism. I cannot tell who their demographic is anymore!

hey ellington… not only I told them… I sent the cover back and asked for my money back.

Nicely done mdinah! : )
That is great!

I personally couldn’t care less if Lindsey spend the rest of her life in jail, in hell or in Mars…
