Lindsay Lohan honoured
Yes, it's hard to believe and I really thought that this was an extremely early April Fools, but it seems that the Capri Film Festival are to honour Lindsay Lohan for her contribution to the film industry.
That's exactly what I thought. Strange that bad behaviour, abuse of wealth and power, and setting a very bad public example gets you such popularity. I'd like to really know what she's actually won for.
The organiser of the festival, Pascal Vicedomini, said:
“It is indeed an honor to have Lindsay Lohan at Capri, Hollywood. We are delighted to recognize her talent as a performing artist, as well as her position as an icon in the world of entertainment”
Ah, now I've got it. It's her iconic part that's getting her the recognition. The part that has been messing up on film sets, getting her the tiniest of parts in a few decent films and getting leads in absolute stinkers, and then making a public spectacle of herself.
You know I am dead against writing about Hollywood gossip, but there's a point where public, self destructive behaviour and the ongoing endorsement and encouragement of it by the media, those who buy gossip magazines and read the stories, and of Hollywood itself, becomes too much. Really this has moved from gossip to career debilitating fact and professional embarrassment.
Wow, what a list of names, and then Lindsay Lohan? Celebrity is a strange affliction indeed.
