Eminence Front

When I was a kid, my Dad had one of those big coffee table books of Marilyn Monroe. It was this monstrous thing in my puberty-laden arms.

I remember going through the pages and finding the naked pictures from the Last Sitting. The famous Playboy shot was in there, but plenty of others were included. Now that I look back on it, I’m pretty sure it was the first time I had ever seen a naked breast.

Train wreck of a celebrity, Lindsey Lohan, has just finished a new photo shoot of herself as Marilyn Monroe, recreating many of the famous pictures that I so lovingly viewed in my youth. Honestly, I don’t really care too much about Lohan. I mean, I thought she was a likable enough young actress when she was younger and I thought her turn on SNL was pretty funny and I liked Mean Girls. However, I’m not crazy about the idea of trying to pump a career by aping an icon’s last pictures. Lohan is no Monroe.

It all just feels forced and silly. I mean, sure, I like naked boobs just like the next heterosexual guy. Here, though, it feels cheap. In the long run, it probably doesn’t matter. I wonder though if this doesn’t portend a sad ending for Ms. Lohan.

Some of the originals are here. Lots more thumbnails here. NSFW.
