We can’t really remember why Lindsay Lohan was ever famous in the first place, but now the former actress who can’t seem to stay out of the public eye for all the wrong reasons has gotten herself some new headlines, with a leaked cover of her new Playboy spread. Granted, she won’t have to spend more community service hours at the LA County Morgue, but her photos in the upcoming issue of Playboy are nothing she should be proud of–despite the fact that Hugh Hefner himself called them “classy.”
Hitting stands later this month, Lohan is the main attraction on the the January/February issue of Playboy–something which she hoped not to reveal until her appearance next week on Ellen. But like any good secret, the cover shot leaked today (although there are more inside which we have yet to see). And if the cover is any indication, poor Lindsay is only further demeaning and embarrassing herself. It seems to us that if she really wanted to dig herself out of her Charlie-Sheen-like reputation and rescue her dying career, the 25-year-old DUI-and-probation-skipping queen would focus on doing something more positive with her life. Like, I don’t know, maybe be a healthy role model to other young women. But instead, she just seems to dig herself deeper into a non-respectable role in society. Although Hefner, of course, doesn’t think so:
“The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay. It’s a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy.”
Does she bare all?
“Oh yes,” Hef said. “And classy, very classy.”
Even Lohan’s own mother is a supporter, claiming that the pictures will be “tastefully done.”
Sorry guys, but posing nude in such a provocative manner for Playboy is anything but classy and tasteful. Lindsay may need the money that her Playboy payday provided right now, but it’s a sad attempt to make her stay relevant. Call me a prude, but our bodies and our sexuality should not be used simply for others to gawk at and get their cheap thrills from. Put some clothes on, Lindsay.
