As of this morning, the last we'd heard of Lindsay Lohan was that she was wreaking havoc at a fashion show. But as it turns out, we were way behind on the Lohan rumor mill: As the actress herself informed us on her Twitter page this morning, there was a new scurrilous rumor about her, one so recent that, so far as we can tell, no one even heard yet.
"Hahahaha my publicist just called me & said she heard I was in a psych ward!!!! Hahaha WHAT IS WRONG with people????... There's SO much more going on in the world! Wake up."
This is actually kind of awesome. More celebrities should deny rumors before they've ever gotten off the ground. For instance, what if Richard Gere had said, "Just so everyone knows, I absolutely hate small, furry creatures. Can't stand the sight of the things," early on, like when he was filming American Gigolo? Then everyone could have just referred back to that when the hamster rumor started, and it might never even have taken hold. In fact, if people denied scurrilous rumors about themselves before they were even famous, the world would probably be a much better place, and more people would be paying attention to the issues. So, okay, just in case I turn famous: I, Intel Jessica, did not have a sexy sex affair with Bradley Cooper. Feel free to deny rumors about you that haven't started yet in the comments. You never know!
