T-shirt could be fash­ion ac­cent

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Lindsay Lo­han wants to make T-shirts about her new ac­cent.

A video in­ter­view with the 30-year-old ac­tress went vi­ral dur­ing the week as she ap­peared to have dras­ti­cally changed her ac­cent but Lindsay isn’t let­ting the furore bother her and wants to turn the in­ci­dent into some­thing pos­i­tive.

Re­veal­ing her plan to sell T-shirts about her ac­cent, and give the money to char­ity, Lo­han tweeted: “Should we make T-shirts about my new ac­cent, do­nate [money] to char­ity. Turn silly to some­thing pos­i­tive for the [world]?”

Mean­while, Lindsay’s mother, Dina Lo­han, ad­dressed the out­cry over her daugh­ter’s new way of speak­ing by claim­ing that Lindsay has the “gift” of be­ing able to learn lan­guages quickly and has taught her­self French, Ara­bic and He­brew.

She said: “I raised Lindsay and all my chil­dren to con­stantly learn dif­fer­ent lan­guages and em­brace dif­fer­ent cul­tures. Since Lindsay was a kid, she was speak­ing fluent Ital­ian be­cause my mother is Ital­ian and would only speak to her in it.”

“She taught her­self how to speak French, Ara­bic, He­brew, and the list goes on. Lindsay has a very high IQ and is very in­tel­li­gent and can pick up on any lan­guage in a minute. She has that gift. She is a worldly per­son who has so many tal­ents and so much to of­fer, and that’s what makes her so spe­cial and so beau­ti­ful.”

Lindsay’s fa­ther Michael added: “Lindsay picks up lan­guages like I pick up a cof­fee! I will tell you this, she’s spo­ken other lan­guages on the phone with me – lan­guages I don’t un­der­stand. I’ll be on the phone with her and I’ll hear her say some­thing in fluent Farsi to a friend she’s with.”
