Watch Kanye West's remixed 'Canyons' trailer

Can moviegoers count Kanye West among those hoping for a Lindsay Lohan comeback?

By way of his multimedia production company DONDA, West has scored a recut version of the trailer for Lindsay Lohan-starrer The Canyons – this time featuring a lot of deep bass. But the specifics of the sound differences between Lohan’s sultry lines are the least of our concerns. More pressing: Does this mean West has seen the film? Is Part 4 of the Lohan comeback train appearing in a music video for Yeezus? Should we expect newly late night show-bound Lohan to start getting tips from reality mogul Kim Kardashian? So many questions!

Check out the new trailer, as well as the original, below: READ FULL STORY

Is Lindsay Lohan the modern-day Marilyn Monroe? Paul Schrader thinks so

Paul Schrader, director of The Canyons, Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming “comeback” project, has taken to FilmComment.com to discuss his troubled starlet and compare her to another troubled starlet Lohan regularly aspires to emulate: Marilyn Monroe.

With quotes such as, “I think Lohan has more natural acting talent than Monroe did,” it’s easy to roll your eyes, but Schrader’s essay about the differences of being über-famous 50 years ago and now is quite compelling. The director discusses how both Lohan and Monroe “exist in the space between actors and celebrities, people whose professional and personal performances are more or less indistinguishable. Entertainers understand the distinction. To be successful, a performer controls the balance between the professional and personal, that is, he or she makes it seem like the professional is personal. It is the lack of this control that gives performers like Monroe and Lohan (and others) their unique attraction. We sense that the actress is not performing, that we are watching life itself. We call them ‘troubled,’ ‘tormented,’ ‘train wrecks’ — but we can’t turn away. We can’t stop watching. They get under our skin in a way that controlled performers can’t.”

Happy birthday, Lindsay Lohan! 27 reasons we're still fascinated by you

27 years ago today, Lindsay Morgan Lohan — née Lindsay Dee Lohan — was born in New York City.

It would be easy enough to mark the occasion by snarking about the state of her career — or with a much darker headline. Somehow, though, doing that wouldn’t feel right. Despite everything — and I do mean everything — Lindsay has said, done, and struck with her car over the past nine-ish years, there’s still a part of me (and maybe even a part of you) that wants to see her bounce back from her self-imposed train-wreckitude and emerge newly born, like a phoenix rising from an ashy nest of hair extensions and cigarette butts.

But why, exactly, am I rooting for Lindsay — and still fascinated by her, after all these years? Let me count the ways:

1. Her ace black and white court attire. It’s the duality of Lohan, guys!

2. Mean Girls, which — let’s face it — may as well be reasons 2-27 on this list. Some movies give an actor a lifetime pass, no matter what else they do professionally or in their personal lives; Mean Girls is one of those movies.

3. Her first-ever television appearance — on Letterman, in 1992, as a trick-or-treater dressed as garbage.

4. Her close and, by all accounts, genuine friendship with Charlie Sheen.

5. Her intense love triangle with Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter, circa 2003.

Lindsay Lohan gives interview to Piers Morgan: 'I've never been a huge drinker'

Lindsay Lohan has a few more confessions from a broken heart.

Before  — finally – checking herself into court-mandated rehab for 90 days, Lindsay Lohan sat down with Piers Morgan for a Q&A just published in the U.K.’s Daily Mail. There’s nothing fans or critics haven’t heard before about how or why her life got so off track (she hits on sad but well-worn topics such as her dad selling a recording of her complaining about her mom, the stolen necklace she says was a misunderstanding, and how everyone — even court judges — “believe the rumors”), but it is rather interesting to hear Lohan discuss what the media has been opining about for years (EW reached out to reps for Lohan and Morgan, who didn’t respond to a request for comment). Read on for Lohan’s side of the story when it comes to drinking, drugs and (mandatory) rehab.  READ FULL STORY

Tom Brokaw thinks Lindsay Lohan ruined the White House Correspondents' Dinner

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a classy event, y’all. And that means that certain celebrities simply shouldn’t be allowed to attend.

At least that’s how Tom Brokaw feels. And with tomorrow’s 2013 dinner looming overhead, the newsman told Politico what he doesn’t want to see at the event, or rather who he doesn’t want to see. According to Brokaw, celebrity guests are a key ingredient in the evening. And when it comes to picking and choosing those classy celebrities, Brokaw has strict guidelines that look a little something like this: The 1975 cast of SNL sits on the perfect choice of the spectrum, while at the other end of the spectrum, all by her lonesome, is LiLo.

MTV Movie Awards: 10 all-time greatest moments -- VIDEO

Tonight, MTV will broadcast its 21st annual Movie Awards. Truth: Twenty years ago, the golden popcorn for Best Movie went to A Few Good Men (following that: Menace II Society, Pulp Fiction, and Se7en). Safe to say, the show’s tone has changed pretty dramatically from those edgy early days when Dennis Miller hosted and Denzel Washington won Best Male Performance for Malcolm X. (I personally trace the trajectory shift back to the short-lived decision to create a Best Sandwich in a Movie category in 1996.) Yet even as the show’s gotten more mainstream (read: Twilight- and Hunger Games-saturated), it’s never failed to churn out cultural flashpoints that have ranged from steamy to awkward, subversive to surreal, and everything in between. Below, we run down the 10 most memorable moments.

Lindsay Lohan was poised and funny on 'Letterman'... really! -- VIDEO

, and enough poise” to come on the show despite all the jokes he’s made at her expense.

Before that earnestness peeked through, though, Letterman and Lohan mostly kept things light, discussing her first appearance on his old NBC show — as a 6-year-old, she played “Things Found on the Floor of the D Train” in a Halloween-themed sketch — and, of course, her checkered past. Lohan said she had planned to do a bit implying that  she was wearing a stolen dress; Letterman laughed heartily at the idea.

And Lohan, in turn, laughed pretty gamely when Letterman read through a few of his Lindsay jokes, taking special delight in this quip: “Lindsay Lohan’s in court so often the cafeteria has named a sandwich after her.” “They don’t let you eat there!” she said gleefully. “What is this, a gourmet court?” READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan on 'Late Show': Watch her awkward exchange with David Letterman

Things are going to get awkward on the Late Show tonight.

As previously announced, America’s favorite headline maker Lindsay Lohan is visiting David Letterman tonight, and if this preview clip is any indication, the host isn’t going for the softball questions.

In the clip, made available by CBS this afternoon, Letterman takes the actress by surprise, shifting talk to her upcoming stay in rehab. “What are they rehabbing, first of all?” he asks. “We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,” Lohan replies, before calling rehab “a blessing.”

Watch their exchange below.

Lindsay Lohan is not pregnant or good at pranks

Lindsay Lohan is not pregnant.

James Deen on 'Fifty Shades of Grey': Christian is 'a character I could have a lot of fun with'

It’s time to play everyone’s favorite parlor game: Casting the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation. When EW spoke on the phone with James Deen last week, we asked The Canyons actor about rumors of possibility starring in the picture. As an adult film star, he already has quite a bit of experience (nearly 4,000 credits) with sex scenes on camera – which, to anyone who has read the book, seems to be a necessary prerequisite for the role. (A rep for Universal declined to comment on casting rumors).

Deen has actually yet to read the book, but like anyone, he’s heard quite a bit about it through friends – and he’d be up for portraying Christian Grey if asked. (Ironically, he’s already playing a Christian opposite Lindsay Lohan’s Tara in The Canyons) “It seems like a character I could have a lot of fun with,” he told EW. “I’ve heard really mixed responses about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s a cheesy Twilight wannabe.’… [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on.” READ FULL STORY
