The interview was conducted in early October at Chateau Marmont, a hotel Lindsay admits to living in for 2 years “Who blogs that much money on a hotel?” she reflects. But Lindsay knows it was her own choices that led to the state her life was in:
“I did it to myself, and I have to deal with the consequences. I’m thankful for what I can take out of it. Now I feel clear. That’s my past, and I’m a different person now. I have goals and I’m working to achieve them. I’m not hanging out with people who are out every night getting fucked up.”
Lindsay admits, with a smile, that she’s happy. But she’s not yet ready to talk publicly about her relationship with Samantha Ronson. Why? Because she is worried about jinxing it: “the second I start talking about whomever I’m seeing, a month or two later it’s failed.”
Lindsay says it’s “obvious” who she’s seeing, and that it’s “no shock to anyone” that she and Sam have been seeing each other for “quite some time.” Check out this cute photo of the couple in Vegas! In a rare candid moment, Lindsay says:
“She’s a wonderful person and I love her very much.”
Being candid does not stop there. Lindsay says she’s “maybe” been with a girl before, and would “maybe, yeah” classify herself as bisexual, though not as lesbian. She’d rather not classify herself at all, but instead go on “appreciat[ing] people” of all kinds. Would Lindsay marry? Perhaps eventually. Kids? When she’s ready, when her “shit” is in line.
Lindsay says her family has been very supportive of her, regardless of whether she’s with a guy or a girl. Lindsay even provides guidance to her younger sister Ali, telling her to not be “afraid of who she wants to be,” using her own choices as an example of living that. To her father, Lindsay says his actions have hurt her. Lindsay insists Michael is not a bad guy, but just someone making “bad choices” – they are not talking right now.
“I don’t want people to think that I’m just an empty fucking whatever.”
The interview continues by talking about Lindsay’s goals for her music career and her acting, and the high praise that Rick Schwartz gives to Lindsay for Labor Pains – how he’s “spread[ing] the gospel of Lindsay.” Lindsay is sure she’ll find the right project to recapture the praise of Hollywood – that she’s a fighter, is “up for a challenge”, and will keep going.
