Lindsay Lohan managed to get herself a little attention recently and it looks like she’s going to milk it for all it’s worth. Last month Lindsay did an interview where she sounded like the Lysol lady’s English-speaking half-sister and it made the internet collectively freak out over her accent of questionable origin. Lindsay decided to name her European-ish intonation “Lilohan.” Now she’s trying to cash in on the accent craze by selling branded Lilohan merch and giving the money to charity. The charity is not The Lindsay Lohan’s Wallet Fund.
Lindsay started hustling Lilohan gear on Twitter yesterday by tweeting a picture of herself in an “I Only Speak Lilohan” sweatshirt with a link to Represent.com where they’re being sold. A t-shirt or tank top will set you back $24.99 and a sweatshirt costs $39.99. According to Represent.com, sales from Lindsay’s shirts benefit Caudwell Children and AFAD (The Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency of Turkey). Since Lindsay doesn’t have a publicist anymore, she released her own statement to Page Six about her latest line of cheap clothing. She’s selling Lilohan clothing because she’s all about being a humanitarian.
“I wanted to support children in the U.K. as I have been living there for the past four years and children are dear to my heart. Secondly, I wanted to help the Middle East in this unfortunate crisis. It think it’s important we give back when we can and continue to raise awareness.”
I totally just read all of that in Lindsay Lohan’s made-up accent. It’s like the Morgan Freeman effect!
No word on how much money goes to charity from Lindsay’s Lilohan clothing sales. My guess is somewhere in the neighborhood of: whatever doesn’t end up stuffed into the secret floor safe at LOHAN nightclub. Lindsay also has something special planned if people actually buy this stuff. Lindsay tells the Daily Mail that her way of saying thank you to everyone will be to recreate the Jingle Bell Rock dance from Mean Girls. But it comes with one stipulation: it has to be with “the new President.” I think we can swing that. Lindsay is desperate enough, and she didn’t specify which new President. I’m sure that for a couple Euros and a new bag of hair extensions she’ll do the Jingle Bell Rock choreography with a person named Thenew President.
