Just as Megan Fox steps down from her Marilyn Monroe-loving pedestal, Lindsay Lohan steps up. The actress has always been slightly obsessed with the iconic Hollywood screen legend, but now she's taking it one step further and even comparing herself to the lovely Ms. Monroe in a forward she wrote for Susan Bernard’s new book, Marilyn: Intimate Exposures. What?! These two ladies couldn't be any different from each other -- while Marilyn was a very talented actress who was adored by the world, Lindsay (to put it nicely) is known as druggie who hasn’t had a real acting job in years and is only liked by those who are equally as fake as herself (i.e. Paris Hilton). But sure, let's be enlightened by their amazing similarities...
Lohan writes that “People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn. “Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I … I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind. But now the films don’t. I don’t want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble." Well Marilyn actually had acting talent, so there's a big difference right there. And if she wants to be known for something other than her nightly escapades then it would probably be a good idea to stop going out all the time and stumbling every which way, but hey it's just a suggestion. The sad thing is that this must truly be how Lindsay sees herself. The dichotomy between Lushy Lohan's view of herself and the reality of how the world sees her is not only vastly different, but it's also rather sad. If Lindsay is this century's Marilyn, then the entertainment industry is in for a wild (and coked up) ride.
So if you have nothing better to do on a Saturday night than listen to the rantings of a delusional, washed-up starlet -- curl up with a copy of the book with Lohan's words of wisdom. I can almost hear Lady Monroe rolling over in her grave. Be sure to have tissues nearby though (you're going to need them from all the hysterical laughing).
