Musto Lohan Monroe

I am sure you've all read or seen the hoopla over Lindsay Lohan's remake of Marilyn Monroe's nekkid pictures. How can you miss it? It's everywhere. 

One of my friends' son ask why that fat, old lady is not wearing clothes when we were eyeballing them, unaware a 5-year-old was peering over our shoulders.

So anyway, one traumatised young man down, the rest of you to go ...

I came across this hilarious article in
The Village Voice where the writer, Michael Musto, decided to take the mickey and do a retake of Lindsay Lohan's retake of Marilyn Monroe.

Classic lines in his article include this slayer:

The slinky Lindsay said she did 250 crunches the night before her shoot. Well, I did 250 NestlĂ© Crunches. Lindsay watched Niagara in early preparation for her Marilyn awakening. Well, I was considering Viagra. Unfortunately, we couldn't get Bert Stern, a man so caring of his subjects that he even ran the shots Marilyn had crossed out on the contact sheets. But I believe there was an offer from another sensitive Stern (Howard K.), especially if he could shoot me dead—I meanphotograph me dead. 

All I can say is that he actually looks better in some of the shots. I always wonder how a 22-year-old can look like a 40-year-old. Even her body is already saggy. And she has as many lines on her face. Tragic. 

For the full glory of Michael Musto as Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe go read his article in The Village Voice. Bloody riot.
