GNN (Gossip \’N\’ News)

Real world and entertainment news

Sometimes we need to back off…

Posted by gnn1 on Tuesday, 21 August 2007

As I was scanning my favourite sites for gossip, I ran across disturbing photos at one.  Lindsay Lohan on a water rafting trip.  That wasn’t the disturbing part-she’s still in rehab, so it’s all good.  The disturbing part was the way she was covering her face.  She clearly was unhappy, if not distressed, that the paparazzi was photographing her.  And to be honest, I’m pretty upset by it too.

She is in a place where she is trying to get well.  All else aside, I am giving her the benefit of the doubt that she wants to get clean.  AJ McLean did it (twice), so I know she can do it, if she wants to.  But the continued intrusion of photographers is not going to help her.

Perez Hilton, a man I respect, has said he isn’t going to publish photos of her whilst she is in rehab-he doesn’t want to do anything to deter her from getting well.  I think that is a responsible, respectable (and respectful) decision.  It’s too bad that X17 doesn’t, pardon the pun, get the picture.

Sometimes, even in this business, you’ve got to be responsible, even if it means you’re going to make a couple million less for a day.  Yes, I say and post rude things.  It goes with the territory.  And when a celebrity is out publicly partying, drinking a bar closed, and trying to inhale their (miniscule) body weight in cocaine, they are making themselves available for ridicule.

But when someone goes for help, whether you believe it’s for real or not, the time has come to step back and allow them a modicum of privacy.

So, until she is released from rehab, I will no longer post any reports of Lindsay unless they originate from a source other than X17.
