It applies to absolutely any celebrity, whether they're a movie star, TV star, athlete, etc. These people are making 7 figures and upwards a year, but they do stupid things like get into a car when they're fucked up. They can afford to hire someone to drive them around for the night, yet don't. It makes no sense to me.
I know, it drives me nuts because they are endangering other people's lives.
I did read a theory that was, quite simply, they like being independent. They like driving their fast cars while being fucked up. Having a driver, to them, signifies they aren't independent or in control and can't do it themselves, which they want to prove they can. If there's any truth to that, it's absolutely nuts. I wish they got more than a slap on the wrist, especially Lohan.
