Hiring Lindsay Lohan Is One Way to Get Attention for Your Startup

shutterstock_134672576-252x300“Stop clicking on Lindsay Lohan headlines” has been one of our New Year’s resolutions for nearly a decade now, but for some reason people still pay attention to a serial rehabber who aims to reinvent herself as a tech “person.”

And, as Valleywag‘s always-on-point Nitasha Tiku reports today, one particularly desperate startup is banking on her ability to win media mentions for its product.

There’s a hitch, of course: if Lindsay’s efforts to promote the Just Sing It app—which claims to allow users to “Instagram your voice” but makes no sense to us—work, she and her brother will earn stakes in the company.

We do like the note, which promises (emphasis ours) “an intimate, invite-only launch party” at Pravda complete with “an open premium bar” and, of course, photo ops with the Lindz.

One shameful Photoshop job and Lindsay’s choice to tweet in the third person are a bit more puzzling after the jump.

They shoulda snagged Snoop, who has never had a problem with taking himself too seriously.
