Lindsay Lohan Pops Up In Front Of James Franco's Lens For R.E.M's New Music Video

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanMusic MinuteJames Franco

Um, what?

Yeah, you know… we had mixed emotions when we heard that R.E.M was putting out their 15th and final album. We're sad to see them go, of course, but on the flip side, since this is their last hurrah, we gathered they would do their sendoff right.

And then the video for Blue came across our way this morning…

Now, the song itself is very, shall we say, odd. But it's this kind of off-the-wall creativity we expected from the band. The music video itself really compliments the stoic sense of the song — five whole minutes of shaky camera work, paying homage to iconic Hollywood hot spots including the Roxy, the Chateau Marmont and the Roosevelt Hotel. As it turns out, James Franco, the actor/teacher/poet/serial killer/artist extraordinaire helmed the video, which only adds a new level to this eclectic piece. Mind you, we're still on board at this point…

And then, Lindsay Lohan happens. Seriously, she just … happens. One minute, you're watching the night lights of Hollywood pass you by and the next, her face is full frame, while Terry Richardson takes her pouty picture.

So again, we beg to ask… um, WHAT?!

Ch-ch-check out the video for yourself (above) and see if you can make sense of this video…

That is, if you don't get carsick first. (Yo, James! It's called a tripod! Being artistic doesn't mean you have to give your audience vertigo!)

    Perez, you're such a hypocrit. If this story was about Rhianna or Katy Perry doing the same thing, you'd be like "ch-check out this amazing… blah, blah, blah…"

    Your site sucks.

    Once again Franco does a great job directing!! The song is a bit different than the rest certainly coming from REM. It's soothing at he least!!

    Love R.E.M., grew up on their music and still listen to them till this day. Their video here is pretty boring but the song is very poetic as well as the rest of their music. I believe since this is R.E.M's last Roo-Ha-Ha, they'd figure they would go out with a bang. Shit, wouldn't you want to rake in all the money you can before ending your career? Using Lindsay was actually a brilliant marketing move! Everyone knows who she is and everyone loves "Lindsay News." Everyone does want to know everything about her because believe it or not she is actually a pretty interesting character.

She is prob in The Top 5 for most talked about celebs and wouldn't be surprised what so ever if she is number 1! As much as we all despise or (hate) Lindsay and her ways, we love her at the same time! Yes, she's a criminal. Yes, she's on the news ALL the time. And Yes, she totally lives her life like a rock-star movie.

    But who is anyone to judge her? I don't understand why critics love to come on blogs such as this one and take time out of their… I guess I should say, "Boring Lives" to read up on a story about Lindsay. If you don't like the girl and have nothing but awful things to say about someone (you really don't even know) then you're pretty lame bud. I personally dont but do like Lindsay because she is full of such dumb drama. And I do feel bad for the girl. She does have a lot of potential in that peanut of a brain to be an awesome actress. Her family is no help to her, it's almost like she's alone and I know she prob is really hurting over the fact she doesn't have a stable, healthy family to love her. I can go on but I'm done for now at least…and the main reason why I wanted to comment on this is because of the fact that I do love R.E.M's music and like I said, using Lindsay was a smart and clever marketing move. It will for sure boost their final ratings!

    after suffering thru the AMA's (except for P!NK) it was such a pleasure to watch and listen to this music video. love the Patti Smith vocals on the song.

    Didn't watch the video since it has shaky camera work which makes me dizzy, love REM.

    On another subject, Hostess going bankrupt, I read Grupo Bimbo out of Mexico (gread break they make BTW) probably has the inside shot. Hope they also bring back Hostess Cupcakes, liked them better than Twinkies.
