It’s been many many years since the internet had a story involving Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and Perez Hilton — but that all changed earlier today thanks to Kim’s new braided hairdo.
Kim debuted her platinum braids on Instagram in a series of photos and videos — most of which did little to draw your attention to her braids thanks to Kim going completely topless in some photos and essentially bottomless in others. Anyways, Perez posted a screen cap of a video posted by Kim sporting her new locks and captioned it by writing “Kim K’s new look. Thoughts????” I’m guessing Perez was looking to stir up a debate over whether or not Kim’s hairstyle was cultural appropriation, which did happen of course, but what Perez didn’t expect was a reaction from Lindsay Lohan.
“I’m confused.” Lindsay wrote in the comments section of Perez’s photo. I assume Lindsay’s comment was in response to Kim’s braids and not Lindsay randomly offering up a broad overview on her own life. I could be wrong making that assumption, but apparently it was the same assumption that Kim had because she clapped right back with another comment!
“@lindsaylohan you know what’s confusing…..your sudden foreign accent,” Kim wrote. LOL!
If you’re curious what Kim Kardashian is referring to, here is an Entertainment Tonight video about Lindsay’s “new accent” that surfaced a little over a year ago:
As you might have imagined, Perez was absolutely gleeful that this throwback catfight was happening right under one of his own Instagram posts, so he screen capped the comments and posted the photo again. “@KimKardashian just responded to @LindsayLohan’s comment on my photo of her new hair and I AM CRYING and squealing and gagging!!!!!!!! It feels like 2007 again!! Tag your favorite Kardashian lover AND hater!”
(Perez would later mimic Kim’s thong pic with a bottomless photo of his own that simply cannot be unseen.)
Unfortunately, most all of Kim’s photos are not SFW so I couldn’t include many here. Be sure to head over to her Instagram to check them out for yourself. Personally, I think she looks fandamntastic as usual. The woman is beautiful, and her photographers are amazing. (Speaking of her photographers, you can see another barely blurred snap of Kim on Marcus Hyde’s Instagram page.) I think the braids look great, and I don’t see an issue with the hairstyle choice at all as far as cultural appropriation goes.
As far as Lindsay Lohan, all I can say is… I’m confused.
