Here’s something fun you can do while reading Lindsay Lohan’s interview with Life & Style about her house arrest: think about all the money the LAPD and District Attorney’s office spent chasing LiLo around during her probation, and all those hearings that led to this—a celebrity finally getting around to decorating her new pad! “I probably wouldn’t have done it had I not been home,” says Lindsay. “There are so many things you can do. It’s a nice way to just be reading scripts and focusing on what I’m going to do next.” It hasn’t all been fun, though. “I was really upset not being able to go to my little brother’s birthday party. He just turned 16. That bummed me out.” Talk about a crime deterrent!
Despite such massive bummers, Lindsay’s glad she didn’t have to actually go to prison for her crimes or anything (“It’s a scary place and a place that I don’t wish on anyone”). She’s totally learned her lesson, too. “I’ve grown up — and I’m willing to do what I have to do to prove that,” she swears, though when asked if she’ll return to partying, she offers “I don’t think you should ever say never.” Between this glib interview and Lindsay’s commercial for Beezid.com that she shot while “imprisoned,” we wouldn’t be surprised if some bitter folks over at the DA’s office are hoping she’ll screw up soon. So if we pray Lindsay’s able to keep her nose clean, it’s mostly for the taxpayers’ sake.
