So sad for Lindsay Lohan, who failed her court ordered drug test according to media reports.
So what? Some of you might say but imagine if it were your daughter or sister or friend.
The issues for a certain level of celebrities is they play out their drama in the eye of People magazine and think that is normal.
Lindsay’s astrology chart is tough. A rectified chart tell me she might be a Leo rising which explains the refusal to accept blame (Leo’s are terrible at shouldering responsibility). With a combo of Cancer sun and Taurus moon, she is symbolically motherless and desperate for grounding in her emotional life.
I can’t feel anything but sad for Lindsay and when I re-watch The Parent Trap, one of my faves with her and the divine Natasha Richardson, I am reminded of what a talent Lindsay is.
Pensive thoughts for a Monday morning and now off to write.
I have work to do and an editor to please, so time to focus and get the coffee on the boil.
Imagine rocking up to your perfect place of employment and saying, “Oi, I wanna job.” and they give it to you on the spot. Nice corner office, expense account which is never audited, every idea or suggestion is applauded and talked about for years after in reverential tones.
Never gonna happen?
Well think about Natalie Portman, the star of the new hit at Venice Film festival, Black Swan. She has swept in and taken the role that Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively desperately wanted in the Jolie leftovers, Gravity. Without an audition no less in an $80 million dollar epic with RDJ as the costar.
Somewhere Blake Lively and Scarjo are weeping and Natalie, wearing her vegan footwear, doesn’t give a toss. She’s like that, doesn’t want it so much. This is the way to be.
Less ambition, more intention.
Meanwhile. I have my corner office and am planning on laying down three more chapters today, at least. Go Katie, go. Think Natalie and less Blake.
