So we know that Lindsay Lohan successfully stalked the boy band The Wanted so that she could finally get her hands on the object of her affection, singer Max George. But it looks like L. Lo is going for the gold in the Groupie Olympics because she has apparently decided to skip out on going to court to answer new criminal charges leveled against her so that she can follow the boy band on tour to London and Dubai. In the long history of Lindsay‘s bad decision-making, this falls RIGHT IN LINE with her modus operandi. Sooooo … yeah.
After attending shows in New York, Philadelphia and Boston, Lindsay Lohan is following rumored flame Max George and his band The Wanted all the way to London and Dubai for their upcoming shows. According to E! News, the actress will be skipping her scheduled court appearance this morning in LA over her handful of recent charges. Her lawyer Shawn Holley will appear on her behalf instead. Lohan is not required to show up in person since the charges – lying to a police officer and a count of reckless driving for her June car crash in California – are misdemeanors. Perhaps being abroad will take her mind off her brushes with the law. The “Liz & Dick” star has been The Wanted’s biggest groupie lately, as she tweeted yesterday: “I heart the UK” At Philly’s Q102 Jingle Ball, where the Wanted was on the bill with Psy and Justin Bieber, Lohan was seen backstage in the band’s dressing room, and then grabbed a late-night snack with the boys after they performed hits including “Glad You Came.” Lohan was referred to as “their guest” to others backstage, spies said … George recently spoke about Lohan to New York’s Z100: “I think we’ve proved to ourselves, if we can stay out of trouble and keep her out of trouble this week, then we’re obviously outstanding citizens of the community, and we’ve managed to do both, so I’m quite proud of that.”
Sigh. I mean, it’s clear that Lindsay has no intention on EVER making the right decision where her well-being is concerned. Altho she isn’t required to show up in court this time, it would probably look really good to the judge deciding her fate if she were to appear before the bench in a contrite fashion. Choosing, instead, to follow a band (a boy band, for chrissakes) on tour doesn’t really show the court that she gives a damn about the charges leveled against her. It sounds like she’s having fun but it also sounds like the guys in The Wanted are having fun of their own (especially Max George who, I’m sure, is getting everything he can from Lindsay‘s overbearing affections). With opposing boy band One Direction getting the lion’s share of the attention here in the US (mainly from those cute Pepsi commercials), I can see why The Wanted would want to talk about their association with Lohan every chance they get. I mean, isn’t this the most you’ve heard about The Wanted in, like, ever? It’s hard for me not to shake my head every time I hear a new update on Lindsay‘s groupie evolution but I guess being a sad groupie is better than being a … well, whatever Lindsay was before last week.
