LiLo turned down New Year’s Eve gigs?

So despite the fact that just yesterday, there were reports of Lindsay Lohan going out clubbing in New York City, now an “insider” is claiming that Lindsay is actually turning down deals to host New Years Eve parties with six figure paychecks because she wants to turn around her party girl image. TMZ reports:

Sources close to the actress tell TMZ … she’s gotten a bunch of offers to host various ragers on NYE … but she’s turned down every last one. We’re told Lindsay is desperately trying to change her party girl image … and she feels staying out of the NYE madness is a major step in the right direction. Lohan’s decision is a costly one — some stars have raked in 6-figure checks for partying on New Year’s Eve. But we’re told Lindsay — who received high marks from the judge just earlier this month — doesn’t think a check would be worth it. Lindsay plans to ring in 2012 with a few close friends at her home … although she may go out to dinner before the final countdown.

On one hand, this is probably bullshit because (A) you’re assuming that something a Lohan tells the press is true, and (B) someone is offering Lindsay money and booze, and this is the woman who showed her boobs to her family for a million dollars and tried to knife her SCRAM bracelet off for a drink. But whatever, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt on this one. At least until pictures show up of Lindsay stumbling around in a drunken stupor. I can only suspend my disbelief for so long here people. “Oh, she’s probably just crawling out of the bar because she lost a contact lens. And the puke is because she has the flu. And that’s baby powder around her nostrils. Nothing wrong here.”
