Lindsay Lohan defies lesbian classification

Actress Lindsay Lohan has spoken about her relationship with DJ Sam Ronson and revealed she does not want her sexuality to be classified as lesbian, bisexual or straight.

The star, best-known for her roles in teen movie Mean Girls and Disney remake Herbie, spoke to Harper’s Bazaar magazine about the intense media interest in her personal life.

She coyly refused to name Ms Ronson as she worries “it jinxes it.”

However, she admitted later that “it’s pretty obvious who I’m seeing.

“I think it’s no shock to anyone that it’s been going on for quite some time.

“She’s a wonderful person and I love her very much.”

The two have been friends for years and it is said they got closer during Ms Lohan’s stint at rehab last year, but the movie star’s publicist has always denied they are in a relationship.

In September the actress, speaking on a phone in radio show in the US, confirmed they were in a relationship.

This has led the press to refer to Ms Lohan as a lesbian. She told Harper’s Bazaar that she would “maybe” classify herself as bisexual but not lesbian.

“I don’t want to classify myself. First of all, you never know what’s going to happen — tomorrow, in a month, a year from now, five years from now.

“I appreciate people, and it doesn’t matter who they are, and I feel blessed to be able to feel comfortable enough with myself that I can say that.”

Ms Lohan said she does want to get married in the future but does now know if it will be to a man or a woman.

In August Lindsay’s father Michael accused Ms Ronson of using her to crawl the fame ladder.

“People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay. She was just some Los Angeles DJ,” he said.

Evangelical Christian and ex-convict Michael Lohan’s outbursts upset his daughter, who told Harper’s that the rest of her family are supportive of her relationships with men and women.

“I would love to say it’s surprising, but it’s not. It doesn’t bother me as much as embarrass and hurt me. And put a knife in my back.

“And it’s hard because I was flipping through channels and someone on E! called him a loser. And that’s my f***ing father!”

In September Ms Lohan and Ms Ronson issued a joint statement criticising the Republican party nominee for Vice President of the United States, Sarah Palin.

“I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States only four years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor, which is probably all she is qualified to be,” they said.

“Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight? Or to use birth control? Or to have sex before marriage? Or even to have a child out of wedlock?

“Is our country so divided that the Republicans’ best hope is a narrow-minded, media-obsessed homophobe?”

In August Ms Lohan hit out at the Los Angeles police chief after he said she had “gone gay.”

Chief William Bratton made the remark while explaining why he does support a crackdown on the paparazzi.

“If you notice, since Britney started wearing clothes and behaving, Paris is out of town not bothering anybody, thank God, and evidently, Lindsay Lohan has gone gay, we don’t seem to have much of an issue,” Bratton told LA news channel KNBC.

“Police chiefs shouldn’t get involved in everyone else’s business when it comes to their personal life. It’s inappropriate,” Lohan said in a video filmed by paparazzi and posted on celebrity website TMZ.
