It’s been an eventful year for Amanda Bynes. Too bad it’s not much of a good thing as The Amanda Show vet has become a tabloid staple with stories of her scandals, outrageous comments and unpredictable behaviour appearing week after week.
It has become almost painful to watch someone so talented get arrested tweet scandalous things. I have a lot of feelings; this is more sad and unfortunate to me more than anything. She has such potential, and this doesn’t need to happen. IT DOESN’T NEED TO END THIS WAY!
The whole situation has just gotten sad, and we need to brighten it up in some way.
Firstly, bring out the dancing lobsters.
Secondly, we just found five people who look like Amanda Bynes because who is she trying to become this week?!
SEE THE 5 PEOPLE WHO LOOK LIKE AMANDA BYNES HERE
1) Lindsay Lohan
2) Blac Chyna
In the world of celebrity news, there’s not shortage of hits and misses. This week, Rihanna dominates the Billboard music awards and Bieber gets booed.
Amidst the sad Twitter spiff between Rihanna and Chris Brown, she shows no sign of backing down as she swept up four awards for Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Song (“Diamonds”), Top R&B Album (Unapologetic), and Top Radio Songs Artist. If you haven’t heard, Chris Brown recently dumped Rihanna – who does he think he is – even after she TOOK HIM BACK following the domestic violence scandal. He stated: “I can’t be focused on wife-ing somebody that young” on Australia’s 2day radio show. She shot back on twitter saying: “Settling is not an option! Nothing less than 100% loyalty, honestly, and respect!! Love ain’t for kidz #butimsleeptho.” You said it, Riri. Plus he’s allegedly been hanging out with ex girlfriend Karreuche Tran again. Can somebody say downgrade??
MISS: Justin Bieber Booed at The Billboard Music Awards
After beating out the likes of Bruno Mars and Taylor Swift, Just Bieber went on to win the first ever Milestone Award. Unfortunately, the Biebs was shamelessly booed even before he opened his mouth to give a thank you speech. How rude! After a few awkward seconds of listening to the screaming fans’ yet somehow extremely loud boo’s, he starts his speech with “I’m 19 years old…I’m 19 years old…I think I’m doing a pretty good job.” Didn’t stop the booing though and he had to thank Jesus Christ for that to end. I really feel bad for the kid, I mean he tries so hard (granted, sometimes too hard), but I don’t think he deserves this. Watch the video here. Best part: Cee Lo Green awkwardly fanning himself in the background.
HIT: Eva Longoria Graduates
That’s right! After 3 years of studying, our 38 year-old favourite Desperate Housewives star has earned a Master’s Degree in Chicano from California State Northridge. Her thesis was entitled: “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers” (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math). She tweeted, “You’re never too old or too busy to continue your education!” How is she so perfect?
MISS: Amanda Bynes rejected from a private jet
T-Mills plays a quick round of “random questions” in Part 2 of Small Talk.
ANDPOP’s Caity Babcock even puts a little T-Mills twist as she gets the California rapper to draw fake tattoos all over her arms. It shouldn’t be a far stretch for T-Mills who, not only is covered in body art himself, but has already tattooed people for real! As for the questions, they get as random as they come: Would he sleep with Lindsay Lohan? Kobe or Lebron? What’s his favourite hashtag?
Dying to know the answer? Watch to find out!

One to never shy away from the late night show couch even in the midst of personal controversy, Lindsay Lohan paid another visit to David Letterman last night where things got a little awkward.
As Letterman is wont to do, the late night host asked the 27-year-old actress a couple of tough questions concerning her upcoming trip to rehab. Needless to say, things get a little awkward.
“We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,” she said. “Just sayin’.”
Lohan, who has repeatedly tried to jump start her career, took it pretty well. She even joked that Letterman sounded like Dr. Phil, the daytime pseudo-psychotherapist/host.
While Lohan did her best to navigate some murky waters, we have to admit her PR person isn’t doing a very good job. If they were looking for an easy guest appearance on any late night show, they should’ve sent Lohan to Jay Leno because he never asks the hard-hitting questions.
Its official. Pregnant…
— Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) April 2, 2013
The celebrity who’s more famous for her general missteps than for her work tweeted late on Monday night, “Its [sic] official. Pregnant…”
But there’s no need to be abandoning hope just yet as it turns out her tweet was more of a lame and late April Fools joke. At least, it better be. Planned parenthood: we never needed it more. *Slams head onto desk*
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jimmy Fallon makes us laugh, Shia LaBeof shows us his abs, and Kris Jenner makes a sex tape.
HIT: Fallon, Timberlake and Carell make us laugh
When these three get together, it’s nothing but laughs. Carell and Timberlake pose as salesmen with fake arms and who’ve names their suits after former ‘N Syanc members Lance Bass and Joey Fatone. Justin also makes some refernces to his song Suit & Tie . Brilliant.
MISS: Kris Jenner Sex Tape
Okay ew, eww, ewww! Like mother, like daughter. Kim isn’t the only one who’s showing off her assets on-screen. According to Enquirer‘s source, ”Kris was talking about how liberating it was to be filmed having sex and how it was a turn-on to watch herself with her lover.” Kris you better go back and burn that tape. Ain’t nobody wanna see that!
HIT: Shia LaBeouf’s hot abs
Hollywood movies can go through the whole roladex of would-be leading men and ladies before the final actors are chosen. When a star like Leonardo DiCaprio nails a movie role like in Titanic, it’s hard to imagine the movie without him (unlike Rose, I would NEVER let go). Can you believe the Home Alone’s Macaulay Culkin even had a chance at landing the role of a lifetime? Vanity Fair put together this crazy collage of what some of our fav films would look like if the roles had gone to other stars in consideration. Here’s our favourite finds.
Lindsay Lohan - Alice in Wonderland
I’d only believe Lindsay as innocent Alice if it was Mean Girls-era LiLo.
Bill Murray - Star Wars
Nobody in a galaxy far, far away would have take the comedian as serious action star in his SNL days.
Ellen Page - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
As badass as Ellen Page is, her face would have been way too sweet to play Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish thriller.
Christopher Walken - Pirates of the Carribean
Why am I not surprised Johnny Depp landed the hunky role of Captain Jack Sparrow instead?
John Travolta - Forrest Gump
The only thing crazier than Tom Hanks not being first choice for Forrest is the fact that John Travolta said no to the role.
LiLo, didn’t your mother ever teach you to take care when you borrow other people’s things? Oh wait, I forgot who your mother is…my bad. Who in their right mind would lend Lindsay Lohan a $1,750 dress? Well apparently designer Phillip Bloch found it appropriate to do so.
Lindsay wore the beaded number for the amFAR gala. When she returned it, the elaborate gown was significantly shortened. Lindsay claims that the dress ripped at a night club after the fundraiser. According to jezebel.com, a stylist friend of Lindsay’s resorted to repair the tear by snagging a pair of scissors and turning the long ball gown into a mini.
Word of caution, NEVER EVER lend anything to miss Lindsay Lohan!
For the first time in over 600 years, the head of the Catholic Church, otherwise known as the Pope, resigned from the holy post on Monday. Because this happens to be the Internet, everyone seems to have an opinion on who should replace Pope Benedict XVI as the religion’s high poobah.
Many have offered some more progressive suggestions for the perpetually conservative religion (Black! Hispanic! A woman!) but who would ever have thought that Lindsay Lohan’s name would have entered the fray, even if it was a complete forgery.
Just so we’re 100 per cent clear, the above tweet is a fake. It’s really not that hard to fake a tweet. Even so, it’s still a hilarious thought that Lindsay Lohan of all people would ever aspire so high.
While the Vatican does have their own system and pool of more highly qualified candidates to choose from, we can’t help but think of some celebrities that would make a better Pope. So here are the top 5 people that would make a better Pope than Lindsay Lohan.
1. Oprah Winfrey
She’s already a goddamn saint without actually being a saint.
We’re already loyal followers of Queen Bey. I’m sure she has more wisdom to share with us.
3. Ellen Degeneres
Because the world would be a happier place with Degeneres leading it.
4. Sir Ian McKellen
He’s Gandalf and Magneto! Turning water into wine should be a piece of cake for the knight. He’s also proudly gay. Bonus progressive points!
5. A Cat
Remember, we just need to beat Lindsay Lohan here. No need to look to far.
Just in case you haven’t been keeping up with Lindsay Lohan’s tabloid-friendly life, the “actress” recently tried to get out of out another date with the law.
Lohan attempted to avoid her early Wednesday court appearance in Los Angeles by procuring a doctor’s note that said Lohan was too sick to fly from New York City. Unfortunately for her, the paparazzi caught her doing a little shopping in SoHo not looking sickly at all and which forced the star to take the red eye to L.A. once the photos hit the internet.
In honour of Lindsay Lohan’s failed attempt, may we present to you some foolproof methods of getting out of school or work (and by foolproof we really mean not going to work at all).

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Selena Gomez practically tells us who her favourite One Directioner is and Chris Brown gets into a fight with Frank Ocean.
HIT: Selena Gomez would kiss Zayn from One Direction
Single Selena Gomez recently dished to Extra! that she wouldn’t mind stealing a smooch from One Direction’s Zayn Malik. Doesn’t that sound like a great new relationship? She’s single, he’s s— oh, no. No, he is not single but I wouldn’t be surprise if he were currently headed for one considering his recently cheating scandal. Malik (who’s attached to pop star Perrie Edwards) had a one-night stand with a waitress. Oooooh! Can’t wait to see how this plays out!
MISS: Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into a fight
Chris Brown can’t seem to stay out of trouble as the village idiot picked a fight with fellow Grammy nominee, Frank Ocean. The confrontation allegedly escalated when Ocean left Brown’s handshake hanging or over a parking space. Ocean and Brown acknowledged the scuffle on the Internet in their own respective ways. Ocean tweeted the incident and added, “”Cut my finger now I can’t play w/two hands at the Grammys,” while Brown practically compared himself to Jesus on the cross on Instagram. Brown has since made his account on the photo sharing website private and is currently under investigation. GO TEAM OCEAN!
HIT: Bradley Cooper took off his shirt at a spin class causing women to fall off their bikes
In his quest of perpetual handsomeness, current best actor nominee Bradley Cooper hit up a spin class in New York City for a quick work out and caused a lot of women to fall off their bikes. According to the New York Post, the actor tried to be incognito and wore a long sleeved shirt for most of the class until he decided to whip it off at the very end. The Post’s sources said at that point “girls were literally falling off their bikes,” but “he was super gracious” to the fans that had the courage to say hello after class. I hope someone took the opportunity to ask him out because he is single.
MISS: Justin Bieber fondles a fan Read more…
This morning Broadway.com and Huffington Post confirmed Tina Fey has plans to send Mean Girls to the Great White Way. Fey told E! News: “I’m trying to develop it, actually, with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock. And I think Paramount’s onboard.” She’s also thinking of Mariah Carey for Amy Poehler’s role.
Um, WHAT? Some might find this sad, but I find this oddly exciting. I’m already thinking of the great power houses and melodramatic ballads that need to be included. Naturally, I think Lea Michele needs to be involved. No one does powerhouse, dramatic ballads like her!
People are generally really excited:
The internet has been casting for this musical before Tina Fey confirmed the musical this morning. Lets take a look shall we? Read more…
HIT: The 2013 Golden Globes Award Show
This year’s Golden Globes can only be described as “perfection,” and here’s only some of the reasons why:
Seriously, best awards show. Ever.
MISS: Twitter reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s acceptance speech
Twitter went a little crazy when our lovely J-Law started her speech with “What does it say? I beat Meryl!” The backlash was a bit disappointing considering I saw it coming from some prominent industry figures (and Lindsay Lohan) because you’d think they know that J-Law was simply quoting the 1996 movie, The First Wives Club. Unfortunately, she had to explain the joke to everyone who’s not on Tumblr while on Late Night with David Letterman on Tuesday night. While her on-stage joke may not have gotten the reception she was looking for, she will have the chance to try again when she hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend.
HIT: One Direction visits Ghana for charity
One Direction is currently in Ghana in support of the U.K. charity, Comic Relief. The five visited Accra, the country’s capital, to meet people who have received donations and support from the charity. While the boys are doing a very nice thing, we do hope they don’t over-generalize the living conditions in Ghana. Hopefully, their world travels have taught them to see both sides of every place so those stuck at home (a.k.a. me) can see the natural beauty of Ghana.
MISS: Britney Spears quits The X-Factor and her engagement Read more…
I always get criticized for not smiling “naturally” or made fun of for attempting the Lea Michele “over the left shoulder” pose… but never have I been told my expression is always the same. These celebrities might beg to differ.
The celebs below honestly look EXACTLY the same every time they have their picture taken. Poor Nick Jonas and Lindsay Lohan are physically unable to smile. (Source)

10. Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone
If Harry Potter doesn’t make you happy, then I have no words for you. Seeing the heartwarming face of Hagrid, or witnessing the blossoming friendship of the Trio is enough to cure a hangover. The nostalgia of your Potter childhood is enough to give you butterflies — and not the kind that will only worsen the feelings in your stomach. Just take note to not follow up this movie with The Chamber of Secrets. You know, that scene when Ron throws up the slugs…
9. Drop Dead Gorgeous
You might not know of this film, but you will at some point in your lifetime. Drop Dead Gorgeous is both horrifying and hilarious at the same time. I suggest this as a hangover cure because it’s kind of like the gem on pageant mockery. Seeing the way these girls battle it out for the top title of pageant glory will take your mind off of your own sad state. If you don’t get around to watching the film, just sit back and be mesmerized by this gif from the movie:
8. Toy Story
Toy Story is a film that lives in the hearts of everyone who is legally old enough to drink. Watching this movie whilst hungover will make you forget all of your worries and remember that you have a friend in Woody and Buzz. It might also inspire you to dig up some old childhood toys and cuddle your nausea away. That, or you can slowly fall asleep during the movie and slumber away to a happy place.
7. Lost in Translation
Lost In Translation earned director Sofia Coppola a lot of attention for her notorious dreamy visuals and uncanny writing. Some of the scenes of Bill Murray are hilarious, but with an undertone of sadness. Amongst basically every Sofia Coppola film, Lost In Translation is good for a hangover because it has beautiful, sleepy music with lovely visuals that will sooth your mind and ease you into a deep sleep.
6. Pretty in Pink
Pretty in Pink is the kind of movie where you really, truly want to cheer for the main character to find happiness. Following Andy (and her adorable sidekick, Duckie) will give you some purpose and motivation during an otherwise hopeless time. It’ll also motivate you to get off the couch and completely DIY your entire wardrobe to look like Andy’s and/or Duckie’s.
5. Mean Girls
The question is, when ISN’T it ever a good time to watch Mean Girls? Of course, you know every line, every expression, and every comedic pause that occurs in this cinematic gem. So instead of being a bump on a bump lying on your couch, you’ll at least be reciting the classic lines in Mean Girls. You’ll also have Janice Ian to discourage you from any future hangovers.
4. The Social Network
The Social Network is the type of film that will stimulate your brain. Its quick wit and fast-paced lines will hold your concentration (and whatever else in your stomach) for a few hours. It also might discourage you from logging onto Facebook and seeing evidence of last night’s regret.
3. Napoleon Dynamite
Napoleon Dynamite is so mind-numbingly pointless, it will require very little of your hungover attention. On the other hand, it’s also side-splittingly hilarious, so it could possibly single-handedly cure your hangover. Napoleon Dynamite gets up to so many shenanigans just trying to fight off the school bullies. Seeing his many (often weird and random) accomplishments will make you want to say “forget this hangover” and then conquer the world. Heck yes!
2. The Wizard of Oz
This might seem like a completely random way to cure a hangover, but hear me out. The Wizard of Oz is like a treasure trove of happiness because of its magical colours and famous songs. The film will for sure stimulate your fried brain after a long night of partying. The best part is that the film’s heroine, Dorothy, reminds us all that there’s no place like home. This statement will comfort you after a wild New Years Eve.
1. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Lord of the Rings makes the number one spot on this list for endless reasons. Primarily, the length of the film is enough to lull you into a nice sedation. The film is so addicting that you will be practically forced to watch the rest of the LOTR movies, which will keep you occupied for your entire hangover. By the end of it all, you can give your self a nice round of Hobbit-esque applause.
The next time we meet again, 2013 will be well on its way. While I look forward to the new year ahead of us, I can’t help but look back at some of 2012′s hits and misses. Thus, I present to you the best and worst of 2012 a.k.a. the year the world was supposed to end according to the Mayan but didn’t (thanks, Doctor!). Enjoy!
HIT: One Direction Mania
Every couple of years, a new teenage heartthrob comes in to replace the older version. In 2012 though, we not only got one cutie patootie, we got FIVE all thanks to music business genius and X-Factor judge, Simon Cowell. One Direction hit North American by storm selling millions of records, filling up concert venues and causing riots everywhere they went. If they can shoot out more infectious pop hits and stay as charming as they are in interviews, they can easily bypass the press’ comparisons to the Beatles and maybe last longer the few years normally allotted to boy bands.
MISS: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez split up
With the final blow of a heart-wrenching split, it’s official: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake of this generation, minus the matching denim outfit. With only rumours of a rekindling love affair to keep us warm at night, I’m going to call this celebrity relationship as official over until they show up at the next red carpet event hand in hand. Otherwise, I guess the title of the greatest lasting love story of this generation has to go to Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth by default. They may not be as picture perfect as everyone would like them to be, but they’ve been together for years and are engaged. Congrats, Miley!
HIT: Honey Boo Boo
Whether or not you were laughing along or laughing at her, you can’t deny the attention the sassy pageant princess known as Honey Boo Boo garnered this year. Honey Boo Boo, a.k.a. Alana Thompson, and her rag tag redneck family entertained us all summer long with their unusual ways and head scratching taglines. While TLC has moved incredibly far from the educational channel it initially hoped to be, we can learn a lot from Honey Boo Boo with her high level of self-confidence that many people (adults included) lack. You go, Alana!
MISS: Chris Brown Twitter attack/meltdown Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Kelly Clarkson gets engaged and Ke$ha claims she was forced to sing her latest hit, “Die Young.”
HIT: Kelly Clarkson gets engaged
Clarkson is one of the few stars by way of reality show that can make me go, “aww, you’re so sweet!” She’s simply seems like instant best friend material and I don’t even listen to her music! Obviously, we’re over the moon when the ever-so-adorable Clarkson announced she was engaged to her boyfriend Brandon Blackstock on Saturday. Then our jaws dropped when she shared a photo of her gigantic yellow canary diamond engagement ring. Congrats, Kelly!
MISS: Ke$ha claims she didn’t write “Die Young”
On the heels of her song “Die Young” being pulled from airwaves in response to the Newtown elementary school shooting, Ke$ha claimed over Twitter, “I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.” She later deleted the tweet and replaced it with calmer apology. Just for the record, Ke$ha is listed as one of the song’s writers, alongside fun.’s Nate Ruess. So, what does it feel like to have that songwriter’s check in the bank, Ke$ha?
HIT: Chris Pratt shows off his Zero Dark Thirty body
Chris Pratt plays the slubby, clueless Andy on Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreations. Pratt is also in the upcoming action drama Zero Dark Thirty and brought a phone selfie of himself onto Conan off his Seal team physique. Who knew that THIS was under all the flannel? I can totally see why Anna Ferris married you.
MISS: Gossip Girl is finally revealed and it’s…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Cory and Topanga will join Girl Meets World and Chris Brown fans get a little out of hand on Twitter.
HIT: Cory and Topanga Officially Join Boy Meets World Spinoff
Ben Savage (a.k.a. Cory Matthews) and Danielle Fishel (Topanga) have officially confirmed that they will be involved in Girl Meets World. As a long time fan (my family has most of Boy Meets World on DVD), there are a couple things I would like to see: Mr. Feeny, the crazy version of Cory’s older brother Eric (circa the college years), and Mr. Feeny. Unfortunately for Shawn Hunter fans, Rider Strong confirmed on his website that he will not be part of the new series. (As of now, anyways. There’s still time!)
MISS: Twitter Death Threats Post-Chris Brown Twitter Account Deletion
Since I’ve already discussed my feelings towards Chris Brown here, I’d like to point out another thing that bothered me about the whole Chris Brown debacle: the resulting death threats from Team Breezy to comedian Jenny Johnson. While it’s not something that only plagues the Chris Brown fanbase, it is the most recent flurry of despicable internet behavior. Just because one’s favourite figure has done something (in this case, Brown quitting Twitter) doesn’t give anyone the right to be sending messages to whomever is being accused of causing that action (Johnson). We also must remember the difference between criticism and pure, unadulterated hatred. The internet can be wonderful with its cats but can turn very dark and vitriolic as we’ve seen countless of times in the case of online bully. So, dear internet readers, let’s try to think before we tweet death threats even if they’re supposedly “meaningless” because, let’s face it, they never are.
HIT: Liz and Dick Twitter Jokes
While one half of the Twitter population was going nuts over Chris Brown, the other half tried to stoically the Lifetime movie Liz and Dick starring Lindsay Lohan. Again, I did say try but it didn’t take long for a flurry of tweets to reach my phone alerting me to how bad Liz and Dick was. Between the tweets and this montage of the movie’s worst lines, it may just be 2012’s answer to The Room. Considering The Room’s cult success (there’s a movie theatre in Ottawa that plays it at least once a month), being bad isn’t a terrible thing. While Lohan may be further away from an Oscar than ever before, she is one step closer to being a phenomenon (if we don’t count her reoccurring tabloid roles, that is).

This Sunday (Nov. 25) Justin Bieber will be interviewed on Oprah’s Next Chapter at 9 pm, the exact same time Lindsay Lohan will be premiering as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick. Can’t figure out which one to watch? I know how you feel.
Check out our list below and be sure to set your TiVo for whichever one you miss.
Watch Bieber on Own if you like:
Celebrity gossip — If you’re constantly keeping tabs on the latest celebrity news watch Bieber. While the segment was filmed before his presumed breakup with Selena Gomez (note: they were photographed out together after the news) he still provided insights into their relationship. He said they occasionally take back exits or use decoys but he never makes her separate from him. “I don’t want her to ever feel like I’m ashamed of her,” he said. ”A lot of guys do that — especially in the business — they don’t want to be seen with the girl, so they make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff.”
Backstage looks at the Believe tour — Oprah went backstage to the sold-out concert in Rosemount, Illinois and got an exclusive look at the inner workings. She also got a glimpse of what it’s like to be One Less Lonely Girl.
Keeping an updated list of your idol’s marriage plans — Justin Bieber revealed to Oprah he plans to walk down the aisle by 25. Oprah encouraged him to rethink that plan because he’s too young for such a big commitment — especially in a fast paced industry. ”Because your whole 20s is about discovering who you really are and you owe that to yourself, particularly because you are in the business that you’re in, and it’s not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you,” she told him in the interview. Justin said he’ll think about it.
Subliminal advertising — Oprah managed to work in her some of her unofficial favourite things (score) by taking Justin shopping and sharing some gift-giving tips.
Watch Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor if you like:
Fledging stars making a comeback — Lohan is getting her share of bad reviews but if she pulls of Taylor’s charismatic yet mysterious allure it’ll be the comeback story of the year. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will happen but it’s always fun to hope, right? And she’s not in jail, so that’s a start. Producer Larry A. Thompson told Hollywood Reporter: “We had to get through quite a bit, and making a movie with Lindsay Lohan is not for the faint of heart. During production I certainly turned 50 shades of white, but we got it in the can and I think it’s good.”
Campy films — Read more…
The trailer for Lindsay Lohan’s new movie The Canyons almost seems like a parody, in both good and bad ways. It pokes fun at the movie’s writer Bret Easton Ellis, calling him a “Twitter-obsessed author” and brags about the “never-nominated director.” The black and white teaser also plays off the real lives of Lohan and co-star James Deen, who previously worked in porn, referring to them as sensuous and potent.
Poking fun at the movie is a smart idea to move past all the real life personal drama weighing the movie down. However, they revealed so little about the plot that it’s hard to tell what it’s actually about. The noir film from director Paul Scrader chronicles a sexy woman (Lohan) torn between two lovers. It explores the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition among young people circa 2012.
