LINDSAY LOHAN attended a wedding in Italy last week and had quite the adventure. Lindsay supposedly painted her nails during the ceremony and got upset when she thought someone took her photo and asked other guests in a British accent, "Who took the photo?" At a party before the wedding, Lindsay changed her outfit four times and made a scene each time. They also say Lindsay pretended to DJ on her iPhone, but kept playing the same songs over and over and left the reception early and ran around her villa naked saying someone had spiked her drink. While a rep for the groom said, "None of those things are true," Lindsay did post a photo on Instagram of the white dress she wore to the wedding, with some fans stunned that she had the nerve to wear white to a wedding when that's usually reserved for the bride. Lindsay also briefly posted a video of herself writhing around on a yacht in a bikini. (See here)

The annual Burning Man festival is officially underway in the Northern Nevada desert. Unlike last year when it rained, conditions were dry, but windy yesterday when they opened the gates.

For the wealthier attendees, Burning Man operates its own airport for the event, allowing those people to avoid traffic jams.

A Condor Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Frankfurt, Germany turned out to be a lot longer than anyone planned. An unnamed female passenger brought her cat aboard the plane in her purse, but got upset when the cabin crew discovered the kitty and put it in a lavatory. The cat lady then punched a female flight attendant in the face, claimed she was part of the mafia and threatened to bring the plane down. Fighter jets escorted the plane to an unplanned stop at the Denver airport on Friday night. The woman was questioned by authorities, but not arrested, while the rest of the passengers were put up in hotels and resumed their flight on Saturday.
