Teen pregnancy 'distracting' - Lohan

LINDSAY LOHAN has slammed the U.S. media for focusing on the pregnancy of potential vice-president SARAH PALIN's teenage daughter instead of more important political issues.

The Mean Girls star has responded to rampant media reports of 17-year-old Bristol Palin's pregnancy after the Alaskan Governor was chosen as Republican presidential candidate JOHN MCCAIN's running mate in the November (08) election last week.

In a post on her MySpace.comblog, Lohan writes, "I've been watching the news all morning, like everyone else - and I keep hearing about the issues related to 'teen pregnancy' - it's all related to Sarah Palin and her 17-year-old unmarried pregnant daughter.

"I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place. It's distracting from the real issues, the real everyday problems that this country experiences. For daily celebrity news updates sign up to our newsletter www.ahlanlive.com/newsletter
