The Internet is aflame with Linday Lohan nude pictures, reportedly leaked to the Internet a week before Playboy Magazine planned to ship the Lindsay Issue.
While the media debates whether or not this can help struggling Playboy Magazine, it is clearly a way for Lohan to get the pocket money she needs to survive. Her career has literally been de-railed by drugs and alcohol.
Some celebrities can manage the wild and crazy lifestyle. Lindsay clearly could not. Her long battle with alcohol and prescription drugs has been chronicled in the press as if it were her celebrity. The newest celebrity-aware generation of Americans don’t know her for anything but her drug and alcohol detox, rehab, and legal issues.
When Heath Ledger died from mis-use of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine, Lindsay was cited as a close friend. Reports of a Lohan personal diary noted she felt Heath “understood” her perspectives on drugs, and helped her survive her challenges.
Since then she has been in and out of detox, rehab, and jail, with very little left of her career beyond “being famous for her troubles”. This $1 million should carry her as she seeks stability in recovery.
