Did someone forget tell Lindsay Lohan that it's dangerous to play with guns?
The troubled starlet participated in a photo shoot for shutterbug Tyler Shields for his upcoming book, The Dirty Side of Glamor, which he describes as "people doing crazy things in a crazy way" and compares the shoots to filming scenes in a movie.
In addition to the gun-toting pic, Lohan was also snapped covered in blood -- which she doesn't seem to think is weird at all. "It's not softcore porn, hunny, it's called ART," Lilo responded to the Twitter uproar about the photos.
Photographer Shields says he can see why the pics are causing controversy but is downplaying the crazy connotation.
"To me, it's not that big a deal, but I can understand that it's a big deal to other people," he says. "She's participating in an artistic adventure. This is not just her running around on the streets with a gun."
Naturally, when Lindsay heard what Shields had in mind for her shoot, she was all about it. "She wanted to be a part of what I was doing," he says. "When someone comes to me, and they've already seen my work and already know what it is, nine times out of 10, they knew what they're getting into and they know what they're going to be a part of and they want to do it."
