Lindsay Lohan appeared in the news again on Thursday, when reports surfaced that a couture dress she borrowed for amFAR’s New York event a few weeks ago was returned literally cut into pieces.
According to Lohan, the Theia gown, which was loaned to her “in good faith”, ripped accidentally so she borrowed scissors from a bouncerand chopped off the bottom half of it.
Sure, Linds… because that’s always my first plan of action upon accidentally damaging a piece of clothing that doesn’t belong to me; haphazardly hacking it into a high-low mini-dress.
Phillip Bloch, who styled the aging starlet for the event, corroborated her story and remarked that despite the incident, he would “definitely work with her again.” Also adding, “I would just lay down some ground rules and do my best to make sure it never happens again.” Yeah dude, good call. And godspeed on the rest of your styling career.
With a hemline as erratic as her personal life, let’s all just be glad that Lindsay’s clothing line never got off the ground.
My extensive coverage of the Amanda Bynes breakdown here at Dipped In Creamhas not only allowed me to verbally express my completely unadulterated love and fascination with Hollywood trainwrecks, but it has also turned my twitter into a virtual playground of sheer hilarity and opinions on the situation.
The majority of my followers already know how much of a Lindsay Lohan stan I am and always have been, so my interactions blew up a few weeks ago when Lohan shaded Amanda Bynes hard as hell with the tweet: “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?”
Gold. Just pure gold. Naturally, I came to mind again today when RadarOnline reported that they’ve been told by “sources” that Bynes is doing everything in her power to steer clear of Lohan now that both of them are in New York City.
This alleged ‘insider’ tells the website that Bynes was “considering staying at the Dream Hotel, but nixed the idea after learning that Lohan has been hanging out there.”
Oh, the Dream Hotel, where Lindsay had her own hit-and-run episode just a few weeks ago? Although the incident turned out to be grossly exaggerated, the irony still managed to tickle me pink.
It seems to me as if these two delightful girls have a blatant conflict of interest and more in common than any of us ever realized. While they are both wasting time shading one other, they’re missing out on an obvious money-making opportunity here.
Why is Amanda Bynes relocating to NYC to try and start a clothing line that is inevitably just going to crash into the ground (Am I the only one who remembers Dear by Amanda Bynes for Steve & Barry’s in 2007? Okay, probably), when these two could team up and take over the world? Do an interview. Show up to events with smeared eyeliner. Fight crime!
I’m getting myself worked up.
RadarOnline also reports that Amanda has been calling ahead to assorted restaurants and stores just to ensure that she won’t ultimately end up running into Lindsay and giving ammo to the paparazzi in such a situation.
While I do agree that the paps (and I, let’s be real) would go crazy over just the idea of catching these two engaging in an awkward run-in, calling ahead to everywhere you go just seems a bit excessive and thirsty. Don’t you have someone on your team that could do that shit for you?
‘X Factor‘ has a weird way of bringing out the delusional and flighty, of course course these people always seek approval the most. Simon and Co. aren’t necessarily looking for the next Adele, but there was at least one singer who thought she actually wasAdele…on Jerry Springer.
The auditions moved to Greensboro, N.C., where Simon got his first taste of the Southern staple buttered grits! First up, was cutie-pie Willie Jones from Shreveport, Louisiana who drove 14 hours to sing for the judges, and sing he did. Demi compared his style to the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air“, but he wasn’t going to rap about how his parents didn’t understand.
Williedid shock the audience when he started Josh Turner‘s “Your Man“, and did a great job with it. I really liked how his voice went between a very Country low and an R&B middle. This kid has a lot of potential. You might remember that Scotty McCreery auditioned with with this song on ‘American Idol‘ and did go on to win the show, so maybe it will as lucky for Willie as it was for Scotty.
When Julia Bullock made her way to the stage she revealed that she was auditioning without her band. Flashback to her in the parking lot with her ex-boyfriend and friend, asking them what they would do if she makes it onto the show. They’ll have to get “regular people” jobs, and they are none to happy it about it. Julia goes into Foster The People‘s “Pumped Up Kicks” which is just alright for me, but she gets her 4 yeses and her ex has to start applying to flip burgers at McDonald’s.
There was one standout with Jeffrey Adam Gutt, a single dad that impressed the judges with his neck-stretching rendition of “Hallelujah.” I thought parts of it sounded a bit forced, but I’m kind of tired of the whole RVRS (Raspy Voiced Rock Star) thing. Demi told his adorable son, Talon that his dad “was a rock star,” and it he got a pass to the next round.
I decided to save the worst for last. Of course none of us really sound all that great singing in the shower or car, but that little fact didn’t stop Krysten Colon from thinking that we needed to hear what she sounds like in the shower. She tried, she really did, with Adele‘s “Don’t You Remember” but it was hardly worth remembering. Her whole tone was just off. Simon encouraged her to try again, and she did in this time with Whitney‘s “I Have Nothing” which sounded even worse than her first audition.
God. The taping was being hit by a pretty fierce thunderstorm while she was singing, probably Whitney having a fit in Heaven from hearing another person butcher one of her classics. It was no, again, and Krysten broke down backstage, fighting with her mother and throwing water at a camera. Before she could throw a chair at security, she ran outside into the rain and her mother was left to apologize for her behavior.
If it’s exhausting watching this, I can’t imagine how it is for the judges to be in front of that for hours on end. I wonder what they add to their Pepsi (which they had to shill in an embarrassing segment), to keep their cool…because I want some, too.
