    Lindsay Lohan Thinks Owning A Mac Computer, Birkin Bag Is ‘Fighting To Live Your Dreams'

    Last week, Lindsay Lohan asked President Barack Obama to lower taxes for those on Forbes' millionaires list. Now, she is telling people how to fight for their dreams, by buying a Mac computer and a Birkin bag, of course.

    Lohan's latest in a string of bizarre tweets featured a snapshot from the inside of a private jet, in which she showcased her Mac computer, Birkin bag and Chanel accessories.

    Gawker's Caity Weaver quipped, "You too can own a $30,000 handbag and a Macintosh personal computation device, provided you never stop fighting to live your dreams."

    Lohan was picked up by a private jet after she went MIA. during the filming of "Scary Movie 5." The 26-year-old "freaked out" because the script of the film made fun of her and failed to report for work, according to the New York Post. She was allegedly threatened with a lawsuit before the private plane went to pick her up and bring her to the shoot.

    “Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings,” a source told the NY Post. “Then she missed her flight to Atlanta on Sunday to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work.”

    Lohan's tweets about "living your dreams" and "her beautiful mommy" are just some of the puzzling messages posted by the starlet recently, who has tweeted to her followers about topics ranging from charity to Chris Brown.

    New HBO Show And Lena Dunham Face Backlash On Racism And More

    HBO's hotly anticipated comedy "Girls" premiered last night to 872,000 viewers. The Lena Dunham-created, Judd Apatow-produced series presents itself as a window into a generation. But not everyone is liking the view.

    Though "Girls" (Sundays at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO) received rave reviews from multiple places (Emily Nussbaum touted the show as revolutionairy in a New York mag cover story and HuffPost TV's Maureen Ryan said it was "bold" and fresh"), morning-after reviews seem less enamored.

    "Girls feels less like a commentary on this generation and more like an indictment on it," John Kubicek wrote for BuddyTV.com. "These characters have been raised believing that they're special and that they can do anything they want. The problem is that none of them seem to want to do anything. There's nothing particularly special about Hannah's life, no reason that her memoirs would be remotely interesting."

    Many writers found the characters unsympathetic, mostly on account of their privilege. (Dunham is photographer Laurie Simmons' daughter and plays the daughter of two professors on the show. Brian Willliams' daughter Allison plays Dunham's roommate).

    "Laurie Simmons' daughter's best friend is Brian Williams' daughter. She is uptight, pretty, straight-laced, and has a boyfriend who's just too nice and loving. She wears a retainer when she sleeps, symbolically," John Cook wrote on Gawker. "Laurie Simmons' daughter says Brian Williams' daughter's boyfriend 'has a vagina,' a notion that isn't at all hackneyed and retrograde when it's uttered by a self-aware 24-year-old girl who has tattoos of illustrations from children's books all over her body."

    Besides taking issue with the cupcake Dunham's character takes in the bath with her, Jenna Wortham wrote for Hairpin: "My chief beef is not simply that the girls in 'Girls' are white ... The problem with 'Girls' is that while the show reaches -- and succeeds, in many ways -- to show female characters that are not caricatures, it feels alienating, a party of four engineered to appeal to a very specific subset of the television viewing audience, when the show has the potential to be so much bigger than that. And that is a huge fucking disappointment."
