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.

Solange Magnano, a former Miss Argentina, died days after having a gluteoplasty in Buenos Aires. The 38-year-old, who was the mother of twins, spent three days in critical condition after having surgery last Thursday before succumbing to a pulmonary embolism on Sunday. The liquid injected into her buttocks had entered her lungs and brains, killing her, according to one source.

As you’ve probably read, Farrah Fawcett has terminal cancer and isn’t doing well. While Fawcett and those around her are praying for a miracle, it’s likely she’ll pass away soon. But what photo of her will they use for her obituary: something glamorous or less so? The one of her posing in a red swimsuit is her most famous, but it doesn’t exactly seem appropriate.

In 1967, about 17 percent of obituary photographs in the paper showed the deceased at least 15 years younger than they were when they died. In 1997, it was 36 percent. Keith Anderson, an assistant professor of social work at Ohio State University said the results reflect society’s views on aging and appearance: “Our findings suggest that we were less accepting of aging in the 1990s than we were back in the ’60s.”
Yep, we’re all afraid of getting old. When someone dies, you don’t want to think of them at their worst. Instead, you want to remember the good old days. It’s likely that this is even more true of Hollywood stars, especially those who are most well-known for work they did earlier in their lives. [LiveScience] Keep reading »
