Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson dating — that’s news?
We’ve been reading with a lot of amusement the headlines that “confirm” Lohan and gal pal Ronson are an item. Lohan was being interviewed on the syndicated radio program “Loveline” Monday night when the DJ asked the “Mean Girls” actress: “You guys, you and Samantha, have been going out for how long now?” Lindsay laughed, and Stryker continued: ”Like, two years, one year, five months, two months?
“A very long time,” Lindsay answered.
Headlines popped around the globe exclaiming that finally, FINALLY, this little snippet confirms that Lohan and Ronson are the real deal — girlfriends who truly are BFFs. In West Hollywood, they call them “Celesbians.”
But did it really need to be confirmed? For months, the pair have been hanging out together and been photographed in public, and only two weeks ago Lindsay lashed out in her own blog against Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin asking, “Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight…”
Well, so now we know what we already knew: Lohan and Ronson are dating. But questions do remain. Does this mean she is a lesbian? Or, as many men and women do, is the 22 year-old simply experimenting with her sexuality? Put another way, Is she like Clay Aiken, who finally came out of the closet only today and by his own admission is gay? No doubt. Or, is she like actress Anne Heche who was straight, then gay (living with Ellen DeGeneres), then straight again? When Lindsay truly comes out, if she ever does, now that will be a headline.
