It seems like there hasn't been a single time in the past year or so that Lindsay Lohan hasn't been making headlines for one reason or another. This time, she's on the cover of Vanity Fair for the magazine's October issue, and the cover story includes an interview conducted a week before her short-lived incarceration.
What did Lindsay have to say for herself in the cover story? That she never abused prescription drugs, hasn't done half the things people claim she did and has learned from her mistakes. We'll let you decide what to think.
"If I were the alcoholic everyone says I am, then putting a [SCRAM] bracelet on would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I'm taking and my father says I'm taking—so that says something, because I was fine," Lindsay said, defended herself. She added, "I've never abused prescription drugs. I never have—never in my life. I have no desire to. That’s not who I am. I’ve admitted to the things that I've done."
She said that her bad decisions were made in part because of the bad role models she had from other hot young stars. "I would look up to those girls… the Britneys and whatever. And I would be like, I want to be like that," she said. "I had a lot of responsibility; and I think just the second I didn't have [structure] anymore—I was 18, 19—with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn't do certain things… And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it."
Despite what Lindsay said about how she has changed, a photographer VF spoke to thought otherwise. "If I called her up right now and said I’ll give you $10,000, she’d come right down," they said. "Once you're famous, there’s always a way to make money," another photographer says. "She might not be doing what she'd like to be doing, but she'll always be Lindsay Lohan."
What do you think of the two opposing views of Lindsay that VF showed? Do you think she has really changed?
