Lindsay Lohan tweeted a picture of herself holding a gun in front of her face today. The photo was part of an art spread by photographer Tyler Shields for his upcoming book, “The Dirty Side of Glamour”. It may have been staged, but seeing the troubled actress holding a weapon is just another reminder of her path to self-destruction.
This isn’t the first time Lindsay Lohan has posed with dangerous weapons in a series of upsetting pictures. In 2007, Lindsay was photographed with television correspondent Vanessa Minnillo holding a knife to her chest.
These photos are so eerie and upsetting because they show a future for Lindsay that doesn’t seem like a fantastical stretch. This week alone we’ve watched as her father brought the LAPD to her house to check on her sister Ali, as she has gotten into yet another public brawl with her ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson and as she has been dropped from yet another movie because she is apparently a risky investment.
She has visited rehab three times and now rebuffs the pleas of anyone who tried to help her. If Lindsay continues on this self-destructive path her next photo shoot may very well be in the morgue.
When Linds took those knife photos with Vanessa Minnillo in 2007 she was 21. That’s just young enough to be excused away as a child sowing her wild oats. There are no excuses anymore. Lindsay is not a child and she has worn out her welcome with nearly everyone who has tried to help her and care about her.
Put the weapons away Lindsay. Get the help you need and stop trying to shock the world with your antics. Because guess what? We’re not shocked. We just feel bad for you. We know you don’t want our pity, so work a little harder to gain our respect.
