Lindsay Lohan on missing Thank U, Next video: 'It’s not that easy to just fly in from Dubai'
When quizzed about why she didn’t star in Ariana Grande’s ‘Mean Girls’ tribute, the actress claimed it was too far to fly from the UAE
Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next video dropped in November. It was a tribute to some of the finest noughties movies and featured cameos from plenty of celebrities, including Mean Girls and Legally Blonde stars like Jonathan Bennett and Jennifer Coolidge.
One face was notably missing: Dubai resident, Lindsay Lohan
The Freaky Friday actress appeared on Jenny McCarthy’s SiriusXM show and the radio host quizzed Lohan about her absence.
“They probably couldn’t get in touch with me, I guess,” Lohan said. “I don’t know. It’s not that easy to just fly in from Dubai.”
The video did, however, get the her seal of approval, with Lohan saying, “It’s great… I love the video.”
For Grande’s version, Lohan’s character, Cady Heron, was played by the singer’s former Victorious co-star Elizabeth Gillies.
The 'Mean Girls' star made Dubai her home
It’s not the first time that Lindsay Lohan has spoken publicly about living in the emirate.
“I feel very comfortable in the UAE,” she told Dubai-based magazine Ahlan! last year. “I can be myself – not followed or judged. People have a different approach... and I really admire it. Everyone is very welcoming.”
She added that the best thing about living in the UAE is that there is “no paparazzi”.
Lohan has also spoken about buying one of Dubai’s World Islands, with plans to revamp it into “Lindsayland” with a new restaurant, luxury cabanas and water sports.
