A Rose with Starry Eyes

{February 24, 2010}   Lindsay Lohan randomness

An in-depth look at Lindsay Lohan as a thinspo icon, a tragic beauty, a Marilyn Monroe-wannabe, an adderall abuser, “ana girl”, her self-destructive affairs, her tattoos, & her parallels to Shiney….

Her tattoos:

  • “I restore myself when I’m alone” (a quote from Marilyn Monroe on her right wrist)
  • “Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle”, surrounded by yellow, blue, & green stars. (another quote from Marilyn Monroe but on her left wrist.)
  • a tattoo on her outside index finger that says “shhh…”
  • small star on her wrist
  • a heart on her hand
  • “breathe” on her wrist
  • “la bella vita” on her lower back

…Alright, so from the get-go we can tell she’s obviously a fan of Marilyn Monroe. (Two quotes?) We can also tell she’s kind of a conformist idiot, since the “shhh…” tattoo is one that she got while partying with Lily Allen (they got matching ones) and it’s already been done by the pop star Rihanna. *rolls eyes* How original.

Moving on in the Marilyn Monroe train-of-thought, we have the numerous “hints” that Lindsay has dropped over the years.

Several years ago, Lindsay visited an LA art gallery exhibiting Marilyn pop art, which Lindsay attended. She was spotted admiring the picture, and has admitted that she has a strong fascination with Marilyn.


You also have the constant poses that seem so similar to Marilyn’s signatures; the “blowing a kiss” pose is above, but there’s also the “mid-laugh” shot.


Lindsay even named her leggings line “6126” after Marilyn’s birthday, June 1, 1926. (My, how respectful! *rolls-eyes*)



Marilyn left, Lindsay right... As if you couldn't tell.

The biggest hint of all, however, is the photoshoot with Bert Stern that re-created a famous Marilyn photo shoot during the last year of her life.They even shot it complete with nudity at the same hotel it was originally photographed at.


Before this, she had also been in a photoshoot that recreated the one George Barris shot on the beach.


Lindsay's mugshot. Which Marilyn's resume lacked.

She also did an interview talking about her desire to “do what Marilyn Monroe did [during the Korean War], when she went and just just set up a stage and did a concert for the troops all by herself. It’s so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who”s basically a pinup, which is what I’ve always aspired to be. I”m not afraid of going.”

Having said all that, there are indeed parallels between their lives. Both lacked a solid mother figure and both had a fondness for alcohol (Marilyn loved champagne, and Lindsay loves everything, especially harder drinks). Both also were without an older mentor to guide them through Hollywood. Although Lindsay had a shot at being guided by Tina Fey, who staged a mini-intervention for her during her SNL guest week, she apparently would rather fantasize about Marilyn’s advice.

She obviously WANTS to be remembered as a tragic beauty, just like her hero Marilyn. The difference is, Marilyn fought to be taken seriously and Lindsay disposes of every shot at respect she gets. Factor together a possible E.D., self-injury, and alocohol and drug use, and this girl OBVIOUSLY has a death wish. In my opinion, her death wish is to remembered just like Marilyn is: a tragic beauty.




Now that I’ve got that unpleasantness out of the way, I’m going address Lindsay’s positive attributes.

Her before and after pics are pretty thinspiring, especially if you’re a large-chested lass.










You can tell it didn’t come naturally, and even though it’s not like she had to work SUPER hard, she still got there, even though it was obviously via adderall and drugs. An excerpt from an article:

Am sure you’ve seen them this week – photos of Lindsay Lohan in Hawaii all bones and skank and laced with cocaine. Shot after shot she’s in her bikini, soaking up the attention, eating up the attention, a substitute for food, knowing that she’s scraped up another reason for people to care about her.

The new issue of Us Weekly however exposes Lindsay’s weight loss secret.


Apparently she pops Adderall like breath mints which is why she stays cranked for days and days at a time, is jittery and unable to concentrate, and gets “spastic” at the drop of a hat. She’ll eat one meal every two days and often subsists on soft drinks only. Lindsay reportedly loves being thin. She can’t stop looking at herself in the mirror, is happy when she can see her ribs, and is extra happy when people talk about seeing her ribs.

Being skinny gets her attention. The attention validates her existence. And it’s also supposedly a way for her to keep Samantha Ronson interested. She wants Sam to worry.

She’s also a great example of an ana letting herself go; all starve & drugs, no exercise or life. This is what leads to looking sickly, and the dreaded state known as “skinny-fat”: when you’re technically “skinny”, or at a low body weight, but your muscles are non-existant and you look pudgy and soft. Skinny-fat embodies Lindsay Lohan’s appearance. (Of course, she’s still thinner than me!)

Lindsay Lohan bones

Her older movies are pretty good frivolous thinspo, especially Mean Girls and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. She’s also great thinspo because of her music videos, which are triggering on two levels: emotionally (especially the one below illustrating her family issues) and from a “I’ll make them envy me someday” angle. (Also see Rumors below.)

Confessions of a Broken Heart


  • affair with Sam Ronson
  • looks a bit like me… ()
  • how does all this tie in to Shiney? simple. Shiney abuses adderall too, does S.I., idolizes Marilyn Monroe, is convinced she is sexy when she OBVIOUSLY isn’t, ____.
