Lindsay Lohan does drugs (spoiler alert!), but it's not nearly as bad as everyone thinks.
That's what she's claiming, at least. Before heading off to rehab, LiLo sat down for an interview with Piers Morgan in which she rattled off her drug use history and preferred substances. She also talked about her now-current rehab stint and said that while the experience will be helpful for her career, there are other things that she could be doing which would be even more beneficial.
In the interview, Lindsay said that the media reports of her partying ways are overblown and said they're in line with what most 20-something girls do. "I've never been a junkie, and never will be," she said. "I just like going out late to clubs with friends and listening to music. Always have done. It's not that unusual for girls of 26!"
Of course, most 26-year-olds haven't been in rehab six times and posed for enough mugshots to warrant a potential trading card series.
Piers cut to the chase and asked Lindsay about her reported cocaine use, but she claimed that her drugs of choice were ecstasy and pot. She also declared that she was "not a big drinker" and didn't start boozing regularly until she hit her 20s.
"I’ve only done [cocaine] maybe four or five times in my life," she said, "I’ve never taken heroin either, never injected myself with anything, never done LSD. Those things all scare me."
When asked why someone who isn't a big drinker and occasionally dabbles in drugs needs multiple rehab stints, Lindsay said she needed the time alone now in order to get people off her back and refocus on her career. However, while she described her current rehab stint as a "good thing," she also admitted it wasn't her first choice.
"I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab center that would benefit me more," she said. "The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children."
You've already done enough damage in America, Linds. There's no need to take the trainwreck globally.
Lindsay is currently undergoing treatment at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA, where she will stay until August 2.
Do you think Lindsay is being truthful about her drug history?
