Lindsay Lohan Snags September Cover Of 'Vanity Fair' — Why Is She Still In Magazines?

Mon, June 27, 2011 4:12pm EDT by 10 Comments

Lindsay hasn’t worked in years now, and currently cannot even leave her house, why is she on the cover of a magazine? And what kind of message is this sending out?

Lindsay Lohan continues to prove that fame can outweigh talent with the news that the former actress will be on the September cover of Vanity Fair according to Page Six. What?!

Lindsay was a Vanity Fair cover girl less than a year ago, when she appeared on the October 2010 cover to discuss her legal troubles and upcoming time in prison. Since then, she has done nothing other than appear in court and experience more legal problems, leading to her current house arrest. In what way does this make for an interesting cover story?

The other Vanity Fair cover article subjects this year include Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber, Johnny Depp, Rob Lowe, and Prince William and Kate Middleton. With the possible exception of Katy Perry, who is however one of the best selling female pop artists of the past year, these are all incredibly newsworthy people. What does Lindsay have to offer?

Lindsay’s last film, save a cameo in the 2010 Machete, was the straight to video Labor Pains in 2009. Her music career has ceased to exist for years and her only public appearances of recent have been at court. In fact, her announced role in Gotti ended up being changed from the female lead to a minor character! What is this interview going to be about? Things to amuse yourself while alone at home?

The worst part is that interviews like this further speak to the fact that being famous, and not talented, is what gets one noticed in Hollywood. Who needs roles in critically adored films when you can get into a high speed chase while in possession of cocaine in the middle of the night? That, it seems, is more interesting than being a boring old hard worker.

Maybe Vanity Fair should dial up Mia Wasikowska or Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Stone or any number of the amazing young actors in Hollywood today who are working nonstop in critically praised films. That’s the article I would prefer to read!

I think Lindsey’s cool. I saw her in Freaky Friday and really haven’t seen anything else she’s done, but as far as i’m concerned she’s very talented and had spunk and had withstood brutal attacks from the media just because that’s one of the bennies of being famous.

She’s just human like you and me and if she’s on the cover of Vanity Fair it’s because she’s gonna sell lots of copies of that issue and you all know it.

Whether people love her or hate her, they can’t get enough of her, can they?

She can pick herself up and brush herself off and move forward, what’s wrong with that? She just turned 25, her life has just begun.

THANK YOU! for this article ! My thoughts exactly. I can’t stand that we are still allowing her to amke money to support her drug & alcohol addiction and probation/ attorney fees. She can’t get an acting job because she’s such a liability. She is not someone I want my kids to use as a role model. What is wrong with our society when we continue to allow this. She is going to continue this in her 40′s when she will finally appear on Celebrity Rehab for some publicity. Good mRiddance LiLow!

Bonnie…are you kidding me? Aren’t you the one the who wrote an editorial on reality starts being the new Alisters? Lindsey Lohan at least has/had an acting career.

Pot meet kettle..

Your blog is entertaining…but hardly a leader in Pulitzer ournalism. You did used to be editor of Cosmo..stick to what you know.

I agree that it doesn’t send a very good message to see someone getting two covers just for being a train wreck while talented actresses with a good head on their shoulders are considered less interesting.

well you’re clearly an idiot when it comes to miss lohan.. she may not have been in any films for the past few years, but she has contracts in the works right now, not to mention all the work she does for her clothing line and the fact that she’s posed for famous photographers.

That’s news to VF. Someone actually checked up on this *story* and it’s not happening, just some fiction written from an unreliable source.

I am sure we will eventually find out she had sex with some bigwig at the magazine in order to get on the cover. That’s how she operates.

She’s sending the same message as Charlie Sheen — WINNING!!

No matter how much you f* up, if you’re being constantly reported on by the media (hello HL…I’m talking to you TOO) then your star always stays lit.
