We haven’t done a Lindsay Lohan story since Monday, just because I know we’re all getting exhausted with her shenanigans. But this Lohan story is being featured heavily in the New York media, and it’s a good one, so I hope you forgive me. Last night, Iggy Pop was giving a show sponsored by Ray Ban, and Ray Ban thought they had organized a bunch of high-profile celebrities for the event. The big headliner was supposed to be Josh Hartnett, but other celebrities turned out, like Chloe Sevigny, Alex Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth. The event organizers got the call that Josh was going to be late, so they opened up the private entrance ahead of schedule, awaiting him. Guess who showed up and let herself in? Lohan, of course. And she wasn’t alone. She brought along an entourage of 30! According to Page Six, when security tried to stop her and her 30-person strong entourage, “She started arguing with the security guy and screaming for him to ‘F-ck off.’ Finally they ushered her in through the side door.” Here’s more from Gatecrasher:
Event organizers at Iggy Pop’s Williamsburg concert Wednesday night opened the VIP doors expecting Josh Hartnett – but got Lindsay Lohan instead.
Spies at the Ray-Ban bash say that LiLo and an entourage of 30 guests let themselves right in when they saw the very convenient opportunity.
“The staff had opened a private entrance for Josh because he was going to be late,” says a spy. “If they expected Lindsay, they certainly didn’t expect her to come with that many people. Most celebrities brought one or two guests – her crew was inappropriately large.”
“It caused a huge commotion, because the VIP area was definitely not equipped to handle that amount of guests,” the snitch continued. “Event staff was running around like crazy trying to accommodate her.”
Needless to say, La Lohan wasn’t at her best. Sniffs our source: “She looked completely out of it.”
Those celebs who did remember to mind their manners included Kelly Osbourne, who didn’t even complain when she could barely see the stage.
“It took her a while to get into the VIP area because everyone was crowding it,” our spy says, “but she was patient. She and her boyfriend, Luke [Worrall], didn’t have the best view once they got inside, but they craned their necks like the rest of the crowd.”
Justin Long, Kate Bosworth and Alex Skarsgard all did the same.
“Justin came solo, but Kate and Alex were very much together,” adds the source. “Everyone was pretty packed together in VIP, but those two made sure to be next to each other the whole time.”
Adds our spy: “It’s fair to say that the other celebs ignored Lindsay. She’s not someone who people are trying to be associated with right now.”
Seriously, I believe every word of these reports. And I like the added note that all of the other celebrities were ignoring her. She’s like the Typhoid Mary of party-crashing. And I totally believe that when someone was like, “Uh, you can’t come in here with thirty people, you weren’t even invited” Lindsay was like “F-ck you, don’t you know who I am?!?”
Meanwhile, most reports indicate that Lindsay is still looking to fly to Cannes. Page Six reported yesterday that Lohan “has been trying to swing a free trip to the film festival to wrangle money for her new Linda Lovelace biopic, Inferno, but no one’s willing to pay for her.” Page Six’s source says: “She’s been asking around, but hasn’t had any takers.” And Inferno director Matthew Wilder describes the project as “It’s not something I can imagine that anybody would ever be turned on by, unless they’re really sick.”
