LINDSAY LOHAN WANTS TO PLAY SILENT ICON

Rehab girl Lindsay Lohan wants to star in a biopic of controversial late silent movie star Clara Bow. Hellraisier Bow, who died in 1965, was regarded by many as America’s first sex symbol, but suffered several bouts of severe mental illness. And Lohan, who posed as Bow for a magazine photo shoot in 2006, claims she would be perfect for the role because she can relate to the 1920s starlet. She says, "I definitely relate to a lot of the things that she went through. Not with her family, but the trials and tribulations of Hollywood, to an extent." Lohan recently posed ala Marilyn Monroe for a New York Magazine cover story which many say has helped her career get back on track.

I was an [bleep], and it was a mistake I'm still completely embarrassed about. "I was in the middle of a strange mind state, having just come off a three-month window of focus. I can't diminish what happened at all. But I can say this: I'm not the first 21-year-old to be arrested for a misdemeanor. There are lessons in life I need to learn, and I'm learning all of them in front of the public."

JJ'S LITTLE DIRT ON BLOGGER PEREZ HILTON

Perez Hilton


Today the New York Post's Page Six ran an interesting story on Blogger Perez Hilton and wannabee Blogger Jonathan Jaxson who also claims to have been a publicist. Below is the Page Six story and at the end I will have some comments.


MARIO Lavandeira - better known as online gossip "Perez Hilton" - encouraged a handsome young blogger to send sex tapes of himself while he was making promises of promotion for the blogger's own fledgling Web site. Jonathan Jaxson - a former publicist and founder of gossip site JJ's Dirt - told Page Six he sent Lavandeira sexually explicit videos of himself with the hope of Lavandeira's help, which never materialized. "He would tell me he would give me stories for my blog," Jaxson, 24, said of Lavandeira, 29. "He used me." We've obtained pages of lengthy AOL Instant-Messenger chats between Jaxson and "Perez Hilton," who has risen to fame with his Web site, where he doodles on photos of celebrities accompanied by scathing insults. The New York Times ran a gushing puff piece on "Perez" Tuesday, reporting he gets 2.8 million visitors a month and is in talks with Warner Music for his own label because he has such a great ear for new music. In an exchange from Sept. 1, 2007, Lavandeira told Jaxson, "you should totally make a sex tape . . . (but not with me)." Jaxson wrote back, "I will have to make one on here for you tomorrow and e-mail it to you." Lavandeira responded, "Hot! Do it now!" The next afternoon, Lavandeira asked Jaxson, "When are you sending me that video you promised?" Jaxson responded, "If you do a phone blog with me for my blog . . . as if I am cold calling you in attempt to get advice for my blog. You can be totally rude. I don't want others to know we talk." The next day, Lavandeira asked again, "Where is that video?" Jaxson told Page Six he sent Lavandeira videos of himself masturbating and other forms of "sex videos," but said he only met Lavandeira in person three times - once in Florida and twice in New York. "I fell in love with Perez. I thought he had a huge heart . . . but he's just a [bleep]hole," Jaxson told us. "We started working together and communicating on how to make my blog bigger. Then it got more personal and intimate." Lavendeira had no comment.


Editors Note: I first heard of Jonathan Jaxson a while back where he claimed he was a publicist. He garnered headlines when he said Lindsay Lohan was a lesbian and having a affair with some female DJ. I remember reading his blog and he said he got all his information from the horses mouth. After reading his blog and seeing he was quoting sources, I wrote something to the effect that it seemed like he was getting all his information more from sources than the horses. I also remember reading his blog a few weeks ago and he said he met Perez at Fashion Week and he was a snob, or something to that effect. Also said something like that he guessed all the fame had gotten to Perez. Those are not exact quotes, but I think that's the gist of what he posted. Now he tells Page Six that he sent naked movies of himself to Perez and was in love with Perez. Who in their right mind would send naked videos to a gossip blogger ? Is Jaxson off the wall or what, or is it just me? I have some advice for Jonathan Jaxson. If you want to get anywhere in this business, you have to work. I worked over 20 years photographing celebrities and now I work day and night on three blogs. Perez is successful because he lives his blog day and night. He eats this business for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now that Perez is successful, everyone wants a piece of him. You sent him naked videos because you wanted something out of him. If you were any good in this business, you would know by now 80 percent of the people are just takers and not givers. (though if it means anything, Perez is a top...lol ) I just read your blog and it says you are giving it up on March 1st because of everything that has happened. Well, that's the easy way out. I guess that's what you wanted, everything easy. Send a naked video to Perez and he will make you famous. Things don't go your way, and you quit. You need to do some very long and hard thinking Mr. Jaxson. No one owes you anything. It takes work to get to the top. It takes more than spreading your legs for some gossip blogger with the hope that he will make you famous too. My blog may not do the numbers that Perez does, but I do better numbers than most of the blogs that have been out there for years, and Times Square Gossip is only a year and a half old, and is featured on TV and Radio on a regular basis. I work day and night to bring my readers a daily Star Magazine each and every day. There is no excuse for blaming Perez Hilton for anything. If you want fame, get out there and work for it. I'm not trying to be mean. We work for what we have and we work very hard. Try doing the same and maybe you will get somewhere. This business is cutthroat. Remember that and you will go far..

We also spied Judge LESLIE CROCKER SNYDER; MIKE WALLACE; WALTER CRONKITE; ANDY ROONEY; and the entire TODAY SHOW gang, LAUER; VIERA; ROKER; and, CURRY ... right nearby KATIE COURIC and LESLIE STAHL. PALM assistant manager DOMINIC SASSONE, has assumed the task of putting them up and often correcting minor mistakes, "Sometimes, there's a glitch here and there ... but, we can handle it!" Gilman said that several new ones will be going on shortly, including, a local editor from a Times Square based celebrity website ... wonder who that is? And, some pretty nifty choices if I may say ... but, we've been sworn to secrecy! But, I wonder, when will Gilman get mugged?

But when I’d stop, when I started again, it became worse."So I think the fact that I did make records and did tour saved my life, because even though I went on stage under the influence of drugs sometimes, at least I wasn’t doing the amount of drugs I would have been doing if I’d have been staying at home."
