Lindsay Lohan‘s bizarre behavior has provided hours of laughs and head-shaking, but since she’s been virtually unapologetic for her addictions and partying ways, many (myself included) have forgotten that she is on a possible dead-end path of self-destruction. It seems, though, that some news wires realize the fatality of Lindz’s habits. PopEater’s Rob Shuter reports that several sources claim media outlets are preparing Lindsay’s obituary. So morbid. More, after the jump …“News outlets need to be prepared. However shocking a story it might be, they are in the business of breaking news fast and any preparation that can be done ahead of time is them just simply doing their jobs,” said a senior producer of a major news outlet. “We all scrambled when Brittany Murphy and Heath Ledger died and don’t want that to happen again.” However, the AP refused to reveal their “internal editing or reporting plans” to Shuter. Still, this latest development in LiLo’s life made for some interesting (and mean) morning TV. Check out Shuter dishing with Hoda and Kathie Lee here.
It’s customary for news outlets to start writing obits of famous people when they’re still alive, but they don’t usually start until the person is really old. Nowadays, though, it seems they have to get a jump on things if the celebrity has a reputation for reckless behavior.
