What is All The Hoopla About Lindsay Lohan ?

February 28th, 2013 by Michael Tabor

I don’t think there is a day that goes by in which I don’t hear some thing or some incident concerning Lindsay Lohan – and my question is what is all the commotion and excitement about. I still don’t know a whole lot about Ms. Lohan, other than the fact that she was a child star- continues to act, model and sing and parties; she likes to drink and has had a couple of DUIs (what young person doesn’t party a little ?) Early in her career (she got into show business when she was 3), the press loved her and she got a lot of praise, now she’s the red – headed step child of show business and now everything is all negative. I’m sure she is a spoiled, insolent 20 – something but the media are all over her – give her a break !!!

The Germans have a wonderful word for all this tabloid media frenzy, it’s called schadenfreude – the malicious delight and satisfaction in seeing another human being suffer. Another truism is that people in general don’t like other folks who are too successful, especially if one seems ungrateful for their incredible good fortune. I started reading Wikipedia before writing this and I got bored after the first two paragraphs – there’s nothing special or outrageous about this Lindsay Lohan. So, again why do the media pick out a certain celebrity and then just incessantly grind away at him or her ?
So, WhadaYaThink ? What do you think ? Oprah, Lady GaGa, Alec Baldwin & Madonna (were).. the list is endless; but what is it about Lindsay Lohan ?

    Much of the hype stems from the fact that LL and her family members air their dirty laundry in public and the media eats it up. It may be part of an ongoing publicity stunt puppeteered by the Lohans who apparently don’t seem to mind making fools of themselves.

    Schadenfreude, an apt description for the frenzy that follows Lohan and her woefully dysfunctional famiy. However, self-promotion without regard for ones self image also plays a role. Her sisters in destruction, Paris Hilton and the Kardashians have developed these phenomena into an art form and made a ton of money in doing so. Disregarding the woefully inept personalities, a real concern is the amount of attention given and possibly taken serious by a disturbing amount of people. With all the wonderous things life has to offer, surely we can spend our time and thoughts pursuing endeavors that are more meaningful.
