Friday Flashback: Lindsay Lohan vs. Allison Stokke

Editor’s Note: This entry originally appeared on June 4, 2007 on ChrisClark’s now-defunct Weblog, A Few Choice Words.

On the one hand, we’ve got a certifiable glory-whore who produces more headlines with her late-night antics than she ever has with her creative output. And, on the other hand, we’ve got a talented student athlete, who just happens to be a beautiful girl, and who would prefer to be left completely alone by the media. It sort of boggles my mind that the girl who actually deserves some news coverage (for her skill in pole vaulting, and not her good looks) would rather be ignored, while the girl who hasn’t done anything worth talking about since she stopped filming Disney remakes* seeks out the press in any way she can.

*I like her first record, but that was more of an achievement in record production than in vocal performance.
