Lindsay Lohan got $70,000 for her birthday

Tbd-lindsaylohan070209 We try, dear Juice*heads, to ignore Lindsay Lohan -- really, we do. But she turns 23 on Thursday, which in itself is no big deal, but word is that the MGM Grand in las Vegas shelled out $70,000 to host last Saturday's "pre-celebration" at the hotel's Wet Republic pool party, the New York Post's Page Six says. That's a lot of birthday cake.

The promotional event for Sevyn Nine tanning spray (of which we know Linds is a fan) featured the one-time actress in five different bathing suits and lots of photo-taking before she hit the club. Sources say she wasn't drinking, but there was a more important purpose at hand -- making some much-need money. That would explain why no one else was there.

"None of her really close friends were there," a source told the tabloid. "The only person who was even known was Brittny Gastineau."

And really, that's pushing it. Boy, it seems like just yesterday Pure was canceling her 21st birthday bash because LiLo was in rehab.
