You took the words right out of my mouth!

While I guess this is better than the tasteless porno I expected of a Lindsay-Terry collaboration (and certainly better than that atrocious, recent Muse issue of hers, simply because she is at least clothed here), I think I would've said that of just about anything, including this pretentious eh... concoction, shall we say.

I am so endlessly tired of fashion publications riding on her scandalous reputation in this way. Lindsay Lohan has managed to make the controversial mainstream and vice versa, and nowadays I would be more surprised and impressed to see her featured in such a way that didn't in any way allude to her lifestyle or infamy. Her reputation garners her more covers than her career in any field or profession other than exposing herself, which is really kind of ironic considering how often(!) she is announced to be making some sort of a social or career comeback by the more mainstream fashion mags that choose to feature her.

I'm in fact so tired of Scandal Lohan that I can't even be bothered to consider the obvious (and silly) religious aspect of the cover. I am in no way affected by it. Perhaps slightly amused at the childishness of it all, at the mind-numbingly dumb and blatant attempt to shake us up, to cause a stir. Lindsay Lohan as the Christ? I'd laugh, if only I could be bothered. That's how unstimulated I am in every way by this cover.

I do have a slight headache now. But probably only due to my new glasses.

(As an interesting side discussion, and perhaps in Lindsay's defense(?), one might bring up the question of how this is any different from e.g. Linda Evangelista playing the "saint" and the "sinner" in the November '09 Art Issue of W, but I can't be bothered to get into that now.)

Naked Freja Beha is just something you do not want to see so often.
The cover is pretty good, much better than her Muse one.

Call me crazy but I love this cover. It's just so ridiculous and horrible that it's good. I guess it also helps that I'll always have a soft spot for Lindsay.

I'm glad Aurel Schmidt has a feature as well.

i was raised catholic and i live in a supposedly very catholic country, but i dont really think that would be considered that provocative or controversial by anyone
i think they failed at 'provocative' and just went with pointless and uninteresting.
lol im so mad i get to buy a mag (cause after all i always buy it and im interested in a lot of the features) with lindsay on the cover.

^to be honest its more cheesy than anything.

i think i understand what you mean though considering the irony of the subject,photographer and what they're "trying" to convey....but it lacks the seriousness to really be taken seriously,imo.

She has!
I mean, she has appeared on everything from Teen Vogue to Vogue (Spain), I-D to L'Officiel, Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair, Seventeen to Maxim etc.

There's really no other person who has appeared on everything from the little teen magazines to the high fashion publications to the mens magazines to the entertainment magazines and everything in between. If you can find someone who has appeared on a larger variety of publications let me know.

i actually like it. she looks really good, and its so much more .. clean than MUSE. well, for now anyway. but in her most recent photoshoots, her hair's always a mess, the lips are ginormous, and she'd have no clothing on her body except for a couple of boots and her hair covering her t*ts.

I'm Catholic, I find it sacrilegious. But mostly I think it's ridiculous, equating the natural consequences of her self-created dramas with being crucified. Thing is, Lindsay probably does see herself as a martyr. It's pathetic, really.
