LOS ANGELES, CA—Lindsay Lohan posted $100,000 after a
judge issued a warrant for her arrest after missing a May 20th court hearing. Lohan claims her passport had been stolen while in California but had been photographed on the French Rivera lounging on a yacht the day of the hearing. Cannes, France
The 23 year old pop star and actress has been arrested for DUI and drug charges on different occasions and according to close friends is unable to control her addictions.
So why write about Miss Lohan? Well, because she’s in the news. No, we don’t know what Miss Lohan is famous for, only that she seems to be famous for her infamous behavior—her shenanigans keep her name circulating in the news. And that is precisely what’s most curious about western pop culture: giving someone face-time and name recognition not because of great talent, but bad behavior.
Yet again, we find ourselves in the position of agreeing with Team Obama. When Miss Lohan offered herself to assist in Obama’s campaign, an unnamed source told the Chicago Sun-Times that Lohan was "not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us."
