For a while we were wondering whether Lilo had packed her bags and retired her ass in some resort somewhere deep in Mexico where blow is always plentiful and cheap. Of course we were wrong, the gal who likes to make sure that she gets at least 46 media notices about her a day has suddenly appeared out of hibernation. Latest snafu you wonder? Well the fact that some ad made by E-trade for their services happens to have 2 babies utter the word ‘Lindsay,’ and now Lindsay who also likes to go by Li-lo (or we think high and low…) is demanding that either the babies or E trade themselves come up with a $100 million fee or else. Mmh, this is a very precarious situation. Should we read on kids?
Lindsay Lohan is suing the financial company E-Trade, insisting that a boyfriend-stealing, “milkaholic” baby in its latest commercial — who happens to be named Lindsay — was modeled after her. And she wants $100 million for her pain and suffering, The Post has learned.
Pain and suffering? What pain is Lilo suffering apart from the continual blocked arteries out of her nose?
The ad — part of a series starring babies who play the stock market — features a boy apologizing to his girlfriend via video chat for not calling her the night before.
“And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over?” the baby girl asks him suspiciously.
“Lindsay?” the boy replies, just before a baby girl sticks her head into the frame and slurs, “Milk-a-what?”
Lohan’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna.
Oh, now we see. Thank god Lilo has a wack lawyer who can try and explain whack logic to us. Continues the report:
“They used the name Lindsay,” Ovadia said. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
Does that mean Santa Claus should be suing 6 year old boys and girls too, since he too is a kind of cultural icon? Really how much standing room does Lilo have? Is it the blow that’s talking or just another attention grab at the media to remind us that Lilo is a cultural basket case that we should forever keep on our radar?
