Lindsay Lohan is just like Marilyn Monroe, Lindsay Lohan says

Lindsay Lohan has compared herself to Marilyn Monroe

Because every starlet at some point must compare herself to Marilyn Monroe, we bring you this latest utterance from Lindsay Lohan: “People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn. ... Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I.

"I don't want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble."

The statement comes courtesy of "Marilyn: Intimate Exposures," a new book on the late bombshell. Lohan is credited with writing the foreword.

It's always a good time to watch stars compare themselves to other famous people, mainly because the doppelganger is always so totally inappropriate -- such as, say, Hitler. In the case of Lohan putting herself in the same category as one of the most recognized icons on the planet, well, at least she didn't bring up Tokyo Rose.

But is there any merit in her choice of soul sister? Well, yes. And by yes we mean not really. Maybe a little bit. Or, seriously, not.

"Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I."

For one thing, of course Marilyn wanted to be a celebrity. One does not get a nose job and a chin implant, correct an overbite on the orders of a producer, sign contracts with major studios, ardently pursue a career in the movies, pose for cheesecake photos on the covers of magazines and wear dresses cut to the navel at the Miss America Parade if one wants to remain under the radar. Lohan, however, may very well have never wanted to be a star; unlike Monroe, she started her career as a child under the thumb of stage mom Dina. Arguably, Lohan had no choice in the matter.

"I don't want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble."

Lohan might want to take a vacation from the cameras if that's the case. Just a thought. As for Marilyn, she isn't really remembered for any of that. She's remembered for being an underrated, overly sexualized actress who starred in some of the most memorable movies of her time, who struggled with her own inner demons, and who died too young. Of the two stars, only Lohan is known for going out at night and getting into trouble. And that's something she can fix whenever she decides to stay home.

And finally:

“People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me.”

Oh, sweetheart, there's a person in there all right. We wouldn't keep writing about you if we weren’t always wondering what that person is thinking. Now we know.

A Justin Bieber wedding crash is just that much more special, no?

Bieber wedding crash: When you're Justin Bieber, do you really need an invitation?

Justin Bieber, wedding crasher? Impossible, unlikely, irritating -- you decide.

Say, for the sake of argument, that you're having a wedding in Malibu. (Of course, then, you're not reading this blog yourself. That's what assistants are for, silly!) You've shelled out the $30,000 required for the inevitable fireworks, you've bought the air space above your estate to make sure no paparazzi helicopters fly over your event (because that’s what Jennifer Aniston did when she married Brad Pitt, and it sounded like a cute thing to do), and Vera Wang has dropped off the strapless, white floor-length but still totally unique gown.

The Big Day arrives. You say your "I do's." Everybody cheers, including the roughly 40 of your 200 guests whom you've never, really, technically, met. The music cranks up: It's a karaoke version of Bieber's "One Less Lonely Girl."

At the very moment when this song is tearin' up your bash, Bieber himself happens to be walking by on the beach. He hears the song. Lo! The natives are clearly praying for his intervention in some grave matter, and he must intercede immediately! He has no wedding invite, of course, but he does have a publicist, and that trumps an invite, in Malibu at least. So and his plus-one, girlfriend Selena Gomez, just walk in.

Why are we posing this scenario? Because it happened! And it was glorious! Granted, we can't say for sure whether there were fireworks or a Vera Wang gown, but there was a Bieber all right. Per TMZ: “We're told Justin snuck up on some guests -- who predictably OMG'd and LOL'd -- and then hopped on the mic, saying, 'We just crashed it. We heard a party so we decided to just come. So let's party.'"

Bieber then reportedly blew the minds of these undeserving hobbits for another 10, photo op-filled minutes before leaving everyone a little more special than they were before.

There is no record of Bieber bringing a gift. Then again, just being with Bieber for more than three minutes is a gift to everybody.
