Make no mistake; all that time in the unsolicited spotlight hasn’t left Lindsay Lohan unscathed, eonline.com reports.

The frequently hounded star has spoken out exclusively to E! News, relaying that the incessant public speculation over the status of her sobriety, the healthiness of her bank account and, perhaps most of all, her relationship with Samantha Ronson has indeed taken a toll.

“They need to stop saying we’re fighting,” she said of the media’s fixation on the ups and downs of her love life with Ronson. “People telling lies about me to her and all this garbage. I’m really a good person and I have a good heart and just want to work and the only reason I go to clubs is to hear Samantha spin or be normal.”

Lohan urges people not to believe everything they read.

“I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs and I don’t lie,” she said. “I love to act and write and be creative and I want to help people by playing characters that can send a positive message out to whomever may need it.”
