Lindsay Lohan Was Friends with Literally Everyone in the Early 2000s

Her #squad was LIT.

Wanna feel old? Lindsay Lohan turns 30 today. It’s a milestone age, especially for Lindsay, who conquered years of public drama and came out on the other side stronger than ever. Now, the Mean Girls star has turned over a new leaf. According a new interview in Vanity Fair this week, Lindsay has become a fixture of the London theater scene, has “no regrets” about her past, and is writing a book. But back in the day, young Lindsay was the “it girl” to be seen with. She created #squadgoals long before Taylor started rolling deep with her crew. So let’s turn back the clock to the early 2000s –a time when things were totally “fetch” and Lilo was one of the cool kids.

    Legendary friends. Legendary enemies. As a result, they invented the term “frenemy.”

    Apparently they used to call each other L-Squared and K-Squared, which is totally normal.

    I bet they each have a room just to house their multiple “Kids Choice Awards” statues.

    Maybe they were friends just because they have names that rhyme.

    What are they laughing about? It’s an inside joke and we’re so far on the outside.
