The story behind the popular night photo of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan

The three celebrities in a car are one of the most viral photos in the world and finally, one of its protagonists revealed what happened that night and why they were together.

Thinking about 2006 is automatically seeing the princess of pop, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan, as three very young celebrities trying to control their impulses and the maelstrom of fame. It is not surprising that in those times their names monopolized the headlines of most of the media. One of the most iconic moments was when the paparazzi captured the three artists together in a car and, finally, one of their protagonists told the truth of the story behind that photograph.

Although that moment completely marked pop culture because its three protagonists were already great references of that movement worldwide, other types of audiences were also conquered since the various interpretations that were given to said moment were for many years. loaded with theories and versions, even invented by the same paparazzi in charge of forever portraying the event, however, the stories told from their own mouths arrived a decade later.

With lives very different from those they had in 2006, all of them already overcoming the great damage that the terrible year 2007 did to each of them, as we have as an example the public excess of alcoholic beverages of the socialite, the addictions to illicit substances and trouble with the American laws of the Hollywood star and the already well-known story of the day the Princess of Pop shaved her blonde hair and attacked a car with an umbrella, the truth arrived.

As difficult as it may seem, the protagonist of great classics of contemporary cinema such as Freaky Friday, Herbie Full Throttle, The Twins Game, and the film responsible for many people wearing pink every October 3rd, Mean Girls, was not so close to The Princess of Pop and the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, as many people claimed.

In the mid-2000s, it seemed like Paris and Lindsay were very close, but that dynamic seemed to change after the viral photo in this text, as when Lohan began dating Hilton’s ex-boyfriend, the sailing heir Greek, Stavros Niarchos, the relationship fractured strongly, generating a very large media war. Around that time, the socialite and her friends allegedly began criticizing the “mean girl” in the Hollywood press, starting an alleged smear campaign against her.

It was important to first say that things between the two blondes were not entirely good with the redhead, because only then would the real story behind the famous photo be found out. Under rumors of jealousy, “rich girl” problems, and even envy of one another’s success, the national and international media decided to name the trio “The Holy Trinity of Pop,” since their public appearances became so viral and controversial, that the most important newspapers took them up for weeks, even taking attention away from issues of the political agenda and health.

The key to this success was more than clear: Britney was the biggest youth musical phenomenon of the moment because of songs like Baby One More Time, I’m a Slave 4 U, and even Oops!… I Did It Again had any record of sales; Hilton was the most important socialite in the world, to the point that for several years Kim Kardashian was her simple assistant – impossible to believe today -; Lindsay had not only been Disney’s child prodigy, she had already become a symbol of beauty that every Hollywood director wanted to have in his productions.

Under all this context came the night that changed the lives of the three of them and the entire world, because what at first glance may be clear as a night of drinking with friends, has one of the strangest but funniest stories that have put a stop to the accusations, theories, and versions about what happened before, during and after that photo.
