Mischanneling Marilyn
An amazing post about the Lindsay Lohan photos
was on connectingthedots.com Feb. 21,
 written by
the former chairman of the American Society of Magazine Editors
and co-blogger on The Moderate Voice, Robert Stein.
That is his headline also.
Between them, Lindsay Lohan (21) and Bert Stern (79) have inhabited planet Earth
for a century, but all those years have not produced an iota of the good judgment
it would have taken for them not to recreate “Marilyn Monroe’s Last Sitting” for New York Magazine
this week.
Grave-robbing is rife in the celebrity world,
but the desperation of a troubled young woman and an aging once-talented
photographer plumbs new depths of exploitation.
Lohan has none of Marilyn’s magic,
and Stern is parodying the artist he was 46 years ago.
My revulsion is not objective.
As someone who spent a week in 1955 working with Marilyn
and the gifted Ed Feingersh, both of whom died in their thirties,
as he created classic photographs of her, I am prejudiced in the extreme.
Marilyn was no Lindsay Lohan.
