Lindsay Lohan defends obscene manicure, may want $1 million for a post-jail interview
Savvy Juice* readers (which are all of you, natch) know that gossip goes in cycles, so sorry to lambast you with Lindsay Lohan news, but she's defending her special, explicit manicure now. Oh, and she wants $1 million for a post-jail interview. Nice to see her making lemonade.
"@liana_levi didn't we do our nails as a joke with our friend dc? it had nothing to do w/court.. it's an airbrush design from a stencil xx," she wrote to one of her known accomplices on Twitter via @lindsaylohan. Convenient she did it right before being in front of the cameras. She also complained that her 90-day jail sentence violated the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human rights prohibiting "cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment." Finally, she seemingly compared her plight to Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian mother who may be stoned to death for adultery, by tweeting a link about that case. We may be reaching for that comparison, though.
Meanwhile, PopEater.com's Rob Shuter says sources tell him she's already trying to broker a deal to pull seven figures for a magazine interview when she gets out of the clink.
"Expect to see a major TV and magazine deal," a source told Shuter. "Lindsay might have made a lot of mistakes, but she knows how much her first interview is worth. She won't even consider offers of less than $1 million."
She won't need that money to pay attorney Shawn Chapman Holley; TMZ says that she resigned on Thursday. LiLo apparently has hired Tiffany Feder-Cohen to replace her, even though Tiffany only passed the bar in November. Maybe she's the only one who would take the case.
A tiny part of us feels sorry for Lindsay; She's the product of her vulture parents raising her in a fishbowl of fame since she was a kid. On the other hand, if it were any of us here in Juice*land who were addicts getting busted for violating probation, we'd have to do our time and just deal. So Linday, just deal.
