Why Lindsay Lohan’s Downfall Was Totally Deserved


We've all heard the cautionary tale about Lindsay Lohan, the teen actress who had it all and then squandered it away on numerous drug arrests and D.U.I.s. But despite her numerous mess-ups, many still quietly root for her "comeback." What's funny, however, is that Lindsay has had several comebacks over the years, from her role in The Canyons to her own reality show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN. None of those projects panned out well for her, so now MTV is giving her a third chance to win back her former glory with a new reality show. But what people don't seem to realize is that Lindsay isn't entitled to all these chances. Judging by her past behavior, her current career (or what's left of it) is exactly what she deserves. Although I wish her health, happiness, and definitely harbor no ill will, here's why you (and the whole entertainment industry) should reconsider giving her any more support.

She's entitled.

Most celebs have delusions of grandeur, but Lilo takes it to a whole other level. According to a scathing profile of her in Plum Miami Magazine, the actress knows how to get whatever she wants. "As we pulled up to the Fontainebleau, a bright-orange parking cone was blocking the entrance," Jacquelynn Powers wrote in the piece. "Not accustomed to waiting, apparently, she lowered the car's window and shouted, 'Move that cone. I'm Lindsay Lohan.' And it was done."

It sounds ridiculous, but Lindsay thinks being an actress absolves her of all accountability. For example, in 2007 when she was arrested for reckless driving, a witness told TMZ that Lindsay had zero qualms about being arrested for her 80 mph joyride through Santa Monica. "I'm a celebrity. I'm not going to get in trouble," she reportedly told him.

And if you think all that sounds bad, you should check out her rider. When appearing on Russian TV for an interview, she demanded a private jet, security, a 1-year Russian visa extension, 500,000 British pounds, a Ritz-Carlton penthouse suite, and oh yeah, a meeting with President Vladimir Putin. Needless to say, the network quietly laughed her right out the door.
