Lindsay Lohan’s last two photo shoots where she posed as Marilyn Monroe might not be coke-fueled delusions of grandeur. Turns out she has an unhealthy obsession with the late actress to the point that she wouldn’t mind dying young surrounded by pills, according to Betty Confidential:
“If you saw my house … I have a lot of Marilyn stuff,” she told New York magazine when she did the Bert Stern shoot. Lindsay even purchased an apartment where Marilyn once lived and owns a huge painting of the actress, who is pictured with a bottle of spilled pills next to her. (Lindsay has been to rehab three times – is her life imitating her artwork?)
Friends say the 23-year-old has a dangerous preoccupation with Marilyn’s life – and death. “Lindsay is obsessed,” says a pal. “She loves Marilyn’s short life and looks at all of it as glamorous, even her death. Lindsay wants to be just like Marilyn and she doesn’t fear dying young. She sees beauty in the tragedy of Marilyn’s life.”
Hopefully, Lindsay’s not waiting until she’s 36, the age of Marilyn’s death, because she probably won’t have a career by then. Or next week. So it might not be a bad idea to speed things up a bit. But, hey, that’s just me trying to help. I’m a giver.
