(Newser) – Photographers clamored around Debbie Harry on Sunday as she left the Mercer Hotel, not because they are huge fans of her band Blondie, but because they believed the 66-year-old was actually Lindsay Lohan, age 25. A picture snapped of a platinum-haired Harry wearing aviator sunglasses does look startlingly similar to one taken of Lohan just two days prior, the New York Post notes; the actress had been snapped leaving the same hotel wearing similar sunglasses.
