So says Michael Lohan.
After getting mixed reviews for her SNL performance, Lindsay Lohan went onto do a seemingly better job on the FOX hit “Glee” and now she is doing the background research and prep for her role as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime TV movie “Liz and Dick”. While many slammed Lilo’s appearance on SNL and criticized her for looking like she was on drugs or bombed off booze, Michael Lohan said there IS a reason for her lackluster performance on Saturday Night Live but it wasn’t what you think.
Papa Lohan told Celebrityviplounge.com exclusively, “I have to say this…on SNL, Lindsay was not using any illicit drugs or drinking but she still is on prescription drugs that they gave her. And the meds that they give her are meds that they say she needs, but she doesn’t need them. But they kind of make her flat. She’s not acting at a full potential. It’s like the screen is down over her.”
He went onto add, “And now when she did Glee I said, ‘Linds, get off the damn medication and let people see who you really are.’ And for a couple days before Glee, she went off this stuff. And there were tears in my eyes when I watched Glee. THAT was Lindsay. Yeah that was her acting. That is Lindsay Lohan at the Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and Mean Girls potential. That is what she was.”
Are these the same prescription drugs she was on back in 2010? Michael did not say. But if those are the same meds she was on, her probation papers back then indicated she was on antidepressants Zoloft and trazodone, stimulant Adderall, Nexium for acid reflux and super-strength painkiller Dilaudid for dental troubles.
