Hollywood news has learned that MICHAEL LOHAN is blaming LINDSAY’s lackluster “Saturday Night Live” performance on prescription pills.
Wait… are we still on this? Really?
Though praised by most of the show’s mainstay cast, Lindsay was widely bashed by critics—and the rest of the viewing public—for her not-so-great guest appearance on “Saturday Night Live” in March, for which she gave a very flat performance. Lindsay was constantly forgetting her lines and looking over (very obviously) at the teleprompter, and at times failed to look directly at her co-stars while exchanging lines with them during a skit.
Her dad Michael, who once called her a “drug addict” and said she needed to go to rehab, offered up a drug-related explanation: prescription pills.
Papa Lohan tells Celebrity VIP Lounge:
“Lindsay was not using any illicit drugs or drinking, but is still on the prescription drugs that they gave her… And the meds that they give her are meds that they say she needs, but she doesn’t need them. But they kind of make her flat. She’s not acting at a full potential. It’s like the screen is down over her.”
But Michael reveals that Lindsay definitely went off the pills for her recent guesting on “Glee,” which received mixed reviews from critics.
“And now when she did Glee I said, ‘Linds, get off the damn medication and let people see who you really are.’ And for a couple days before Glee, she went off this stuff. And there were tears in my eyes when I watched Glee. THAT was Lindsay.”
“Yeah that was her acting. That is Lindsay Lohan at the Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and Mean Girls potential. That is what she was.”
Really? Lindsay‘s appearance on “Glee” was definitely better than her “SNL” stint, but we really don’t think it’s up there with “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday.”
But anyway, do you believe Michael’s claim about the prescription pills?
