Or, is Kris Jenner truly the best hustler of all time? We weigh competing theses, and discuss Ray J’s thirst, copycat stardom, and why MKUltra needs to just quit it with the brainwashing.

Comparative Socialite Studies: La Lohan and The Genius of Madness

Students, take your seats! This lecture’s going to be a doozy, as the time has come for us to study the one socialite to rule them all: Lindsay effing Lohan. La Lohan proved to be funner, crazier, and red hair-ier than the rest, giving her a special place in 2000s history and beyond. From Olympic-medalling sexual escapades to political aspirations, and a complex code-based language employed in her social media posts, Lindsay definitely knows more than you think.

We also discuss pressing matters such as James Franco’s pretension, 2005’s VMAs, and why Kanye West should deliver his State of the Union using the staging set-up from the Life of Pablo tour.
