Lindsay Lohan red hair is back, and this is news because ... well, because it's Lindsay. And she wasn't arrested today and didn't get busted with any unusual substances or provide the media with any childish outbursts. So instead we discuss her hair.
It's such a hot button topic that many websites are running polls or asking whether viewers "love it or hate it? This is apparently Lohan's natural color, though you'd never know it given the thousands of different styles she's strolled around town wearing over the years.
Lohan has entered the strange circus realm stars enter where everything becomes gossip column fodder. Lindsay Lohan makes Ramen noodles? Back page of the New York Post. Lindsay Lohan spotted playing hopscotch? News coverage on three networks simultaneously.
So Lindsay Lohan changing hair style/color? That's breaking news. Big news. And there are millions of people following the story with baited breath, waiting for the latest updates. Stay tuned ... if the shade fades to auburn or dirty blonde, you'll be the first to know.
Lohan, no doubt, is pleased. She would most certainly rather be in the news for a professional hair change rather than for being incarcerated or for throwing a now-infamous prison tantrum. Comparatively speaking, this is like vacation.
Lindsay Lohan is no longer a blonde. She's gone back to her roots and is a red head.
And you should care. Because the media says so.
