Lindsay Lohan Dancing To Christmas Music Is Simultaneously Sexy And Deeply Depressing
Hey, can you send an adult over here? I just watched Lindsay Lohan doing a sensual little Christmas dance for that Love Magazine advent calendar thing and now I think I have a sadness boner?? What is this sensation?
In case it didn’t make sense to you back there when I strung the words ‘love magazine’ and ‘advent calendar together’, let me explain real quick. It’s a thing that Love has been doing where every day in December, they release a new video of a different celebrity getting in the holiday spirit by dancing around to Christmas songs, typically in their underwear. They’ve had everyone from Adriana Lima to Suki Waterhouse to Kendall Jenner (
followed one-upped swiftly by Kris Jenner, I’m not even kidding), and now they have our gal LiLo.
I think part of what’s confusing me is that the last time I saw Lindsay dancing around in a Christmas-y fashion, it was for the movie Mean Girls in 2004. And I don’t know if you’ve been keeping tabs on Linds, but she’s lived a lot of life since then, and it shows up all over her face. But only some of the time! For a lot of this clip she’s relaxed, smiling, and bright-eyed, and I’m like okay sure! I’m not even a straight dude, and I can dig this. But then we get to the end, and all of a sudden the light in her eyes is snuffed out, her mouth is slackly hanging open, and I’m flaccid and sad, remembering the girl we lost.
See what I mean? It’s a regular Christmas roller coaster of emotion.
