It's been less than a month since Lindsay Lohan completed her double-lap of jail and rehab -- so does that mean it's too soon to go clubbing? According to Us Weekly, Lohan, 24, pulled an all-nighter at the New York City club Boom Boom Room on Saturday. Ironically, she'd just taped her Video Music Awards segment -- in which she lectured Chelsea Handler about drinking -- the day before.
"It's the same old cycle of lying and denials," says Us Weekly's source. "She's telling everyone she didn't go out. We're like, 'Lindsay, people saw you there!'"
Another clubgoer tells the magazine that they saw Lohan, but "it looked like didn't want to be noticed."
The image of post-rehab Lindsay Lohan slinking into clubs in the wee hours and trying "not be noticed" is, frankly, a little pathetic. But let's cut her a little slack for a change: Lindsay Lohan is, and has always been, a scenester. Dressing up and club-hopping is what she does for fun, and we can't expect her to swap that for crochet and watercolors just because she's on the wagon.
Of course, there is that pesky little problem of clubs serving alcohol and, too often, tacitly condoning drug use. If Lohan is serious about sobering up, she's going to need a will of steel to keep hitting her favorite clubs and ordering soda. But maybe she can do it. The difference probably comes down to the strength of Lohan's support network; hopefully, some of her friends are actually helping her get back on track, rather than blabbing to Us Weekly.
Now that she's done her time (literally), we can already see Lilo's career starting to get back on track: her VMA sketch was well-received, her name is actually being mentioned without shame in the Machete promotions, and there's talk that she may be back to host Saturday Night Live. If she can resist the siren call of the open bar, things can only get better from here.
