You know how Lindsay Lohan, human born in America, has taken to speaking in a mysterious accent? And how it's possibly the strangest thing to happen in 2016, other than Donald Trump being a viable presidential candidate? Well there's a simple explanation, courtesy of LiLo's mother Dina Lohan.
"I have raised Lindsay and all my kids to constantly learn different languages, and embrace different cultures," Dina tells Us Weekly. "Since Lindsay was a kid, she was speaking fluent Italian because my mother is Italian and would only speak to her in Italian. She taught herself how to speak French, Arabic, Greek, Hebrew, and the list goes on. Lindsay has a very high IQ, and is very intelligent, and can pick up on any languages in a minute. She has that gift."
With that many languages rattling around her brain, it's no wonder Lindsay's busted out a hybrid accent. But in all seriousness, while said accent is amusing and worthy of chuckles, she's actually doing great, admirable things with her time. Namely, helping refugees.
"She is overseas now focusing on giving back to kids who have been refugees, who have no place to go, who have no food, who have no clothes to wear or anyone to turn to, and she helps them get everything they need," Dina explains. "She sits down and communicates with each kid no matter what background they have come from or what language they speak, because that's her way of communicating to them. 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."
Can't argue with that.
