When we heard Lindsay Lohan鈥檚 new (totally made up) accent that she鈥檚 deemed 鈥淟ilohan,鈥 we were as mesmerized as we were weirded out. Understanding the need for change is one thing, but this is鈥 well, it鈥檚 kinda classic Lindsay Lohan at this point. And while it鈥檚 raising eyebrows, Lindsay has now given us an explanation for her new way of speaking.

Lindsay Lohan

Though she didn鈥檛 quite explain why she鈥檚 adopted a new accent, she did explain where her new particular (peculiar) way of speaking came from. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn,鈥 she said according to Perez Hilton.

She added, 鈥淚鈥檝e been learning different languages since I was a child. I鈥檓 fluent in English and French, can understand Russian, and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.鈥

English + French + Russian + Turkish + Italian + Arabic = Lilohan. Yowza.

Though it鈥檚 no doubt intriguing and capturing peeps attention, we have to wonder how long Lindsay can keep it up. Is Lilohan permanent? Or will Lindsay eventually fade back to her good ol鈥 American accent?
