The return of Lindsay Lohan
Last month, Netflix announced Lindsay Lohan will be starring in a new romantic comedy and will mark a return to acting for Lohan, the Mean Girls and The Parent Trap star who has been mostly away from front-of-camera roles of late.
The plot centers on a newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress (Lohan) who gets into a skiing accident and, suffering from amnesia, finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.
Lohan’s name has also been in the public recently in the wake of Chrissy Teigen‘s Courtney Stodden Twitter scandal. It appears Chrissy also took aim at Lindsay’s struggles during that time.
In a since-deleted Twitter post from January 2011, she wrote: “Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees Emma Stone.” It came after Lindsay, 34, previously opened up about self-harming in the past.
Lohan hasn’t spoken about the past tweet, but her mother Dina Lohan has. Dina claims the 2011 tweet upset everyone in the family as she opened up to Page Six.
Lindsay’s mom said: “When someone says hurtful words they’re not just hurting that person, they’re hurting their siblings, their mother their grandma.
“They’re inflicting so much pain.”
Meanwhile, Lohan has found a new way to earn to bring in the Benjamins. Lohan recently cashed in on the craze by turning her new single “Lullaby” into an NFT, which sold for $85,000.
Speaking with Interview magazine, Lohan, 34, provided a seven-step plan telling others how to make money off the craze, which she believes will be around for a long time.
The first piece of advice concerns creating a marketable NFT. “I believe that what makes a great NFT is creating something that tells a story through a new medium,” she says, “and tell them in ways that are more authentic.”
Lohan also lays out the more technical steps of creating an NFT, from how to properly mint a piece of work to properly securing it and the money made off of it.
As for how to make money, the Freaky Friday star says in step six, “There are various ways to do it, but the best way to get discovered is to build a community from day one involving your creative persona. Give people something more than just an NFT.”
“Access to a stronger creator-and-buyer relationship is key,” stresses Lohan.
The actress also explains that building a community provides more “selling power,” which can later be used to “empower other smaller artists, thereby keeping the cycle going.”
The highest-selling NFT to date belongs to an artist known as Beeple, who sold his digital artwork for a resounding $69 million.
