Why do we obsess over Lindsay Lohan so much? Why do we humans have an obsession with fame? She hasn’t really done any seriously successful acting work for years now (even though she’s ‘rebooting’ her career right now by starring in the likes of Scary Movie 5, not the best way to rejuvenate your career lilo I must say) we still seem to be lapping up any details about her life. Oprah Winfrey was even willing to pay her $2 million for the chance to interview her after her most recent court-ordered stint in rehab. Do you think we enjoy witnessing a star’s fall from grace or would be half as interested if she hadn’t been arrested for drink driving, drugs etc and was simply still the innocent and talented young actress she used to be? Does Lohan make drugs, drinking, going against the tide and generally not giving a sh*t cool? It’s sad that talented young actors so often travel down the wrong path, is this because of money? fame? pressure? lack of a childhood? Who knows, a mixture of all most likely. But a friend of mine made an interesting comment when she said that ‘a lot of these child stars go bad because if they don’t, they’ll have the cheesy, Disney child star image for the rest of their life if they don’t’.
