Her mother taught her well. Dina Lohan’s mantra?

Wah wah wah.

Needless to say, it’s the same for Lindsay Lohan.

New interview with Interview Magazine interviewed by Lauren Hutton who isn’t herself the picture of sanity. Lilo complains and complains. About the situation she finds herself in. About the paps. About the attention. The relentless presence of photographers who pursue her. The fact that she gets no privacy and that’s why she can’t get a job:

"But it's so impossible for me to actually [go someplace where no one knows me]. When I was in Dubai, there was still press lined up around the hotel. So I find it close to impossible to actually do that. I mean, it is what it is. This is what I asked for, and in this day and age that's what actually goes on.”

She’s talking like she’s the Brange. Please.

And then she goes on about her one-time nemesis Scarlett Johansson. She says they have the same work ethic.

"But what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don't get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life. But that doesn't mean it's going to last forever."


Because Lindsay went shopping yesterday. Like she does every day when she’s not hosting parties with Samantha Ronson. Is that considered work? It’s just that Scarlett who does have a home in Hollywood manages to not get photographed every day. How is that? She’s not any less famous…

And about Lilo’s motivation:

"I just feel as though it's become a situation where people have manifested this caricature of who I am, and they act as if there's no real person inside of it. I mean, people really have come to believe-directors, producers, agents, whoever it may be-that I started in this because I wanted to be a celebrity. But that was never my intention."

No. It was your mother’s intention. This is why you’re so f-cked up.

A thousand excuses, a thousand justifications, a thousand ways not to be accountable. It’s always everybody else’s fault. And that’s the problem with child stardom. They’re convinced it’s never THEM. It’s always YOU.
