Lindsay Lohan & KAWS Cover Complex

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Lindsay’s been on a rampage lately. So much so that after shooting this cover, she never even bothered to show up for the interview that was supposed to accompany it.

Rappers might be on that rock shit, but Linsay Lohan is on that rap shit. Flaking on interviews? Check. Unrepentant bad behaviour? Check. Gully enough to ignore a bench warrant, come back from Europe for a legal hearing, and have her court-supplied alcohol bracelet go off at the MTV Movie Awards? Check and mate. She’s Weezy, Yeezy, and motherfucking Jeezy all in one. Who else would choose her comeback vehicles to be Robert Rodriguez’s Machete and the Linda Lovelace biopic, Inferno? That’s gully on both counts. She may have been a Disney ingenue, but about five years ago she took a hard left, and we’ve been loving her for it—movies or no movies. So yea we’ve been angling to get her on the cover for a minute now. And when it happened? We’re about to remind people that they’ve been underestimating Lindsay. We’re about to ride out together, Bonnie and Clyde style. But some funny things happend on the way to making magic—and they reminded us that Lilo’s not lost, she’s just trying to hide from the vultures.

Oh well, I’m sure most of Complex’s demo would rather oggle her KAWS enhanced photos than read what she has to say anyway.

After the jump, check out some behind the scenes video from the shoot.

Here’s a glimpse of a conversation they had when they were standing around at the shoot. Cur+@!n$ gets his Yeezy’s autographed and more of Pusha T’s rant about not getting a pair. Kanye counters by admitting that he probably spends more money on Yeezy’s than anyone since he has to get them off eBay. The videos a bit more candid than the other ones but it’s probably still difficult to say anything when everyone’s standing around and taping you. Props to Ferris Bueller for the footage though.
