She's thought long and hard about it, and Lindsay Lohan is through with Hollywood. "I won't live in L.A. again, hell no," she tells the Observer in a lengthy interview. "My friends tell me s--- when they come over I don't want to hear. I don't even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in L.A. and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news? I love the BBC. I haven't heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great." So there you go. The secret to keeping Lindsay Lohan away is to constantly mention her. I'd like to take this time to announce that Ms. Lohan will feature into every single thing I write from now on.
Ahem. Also of note? Lohan seems to suggest her past issues with excessive partying that got her into so much trouble weren't really her own fault but more the fault of her friends and their lack of creativity when it came to social activities. Well, them and the paparazzi. "In L.A. I didn't know what to do apart from go out every night. That's when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that's when it became difficult," she explains. "I can go for a run here on my own. I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up, and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else." Congratulations, London. She's all yours.
