Lindsay Lohan: “I Don’t Know Why I Am Such a Target”

Lindsay Lohan – who recently engaged in a nasty public fight with her estranged dad, posed with a gun in her mouth at a photo shoot and stayed out until 5 a.m. last night – doesn't get why she is always making headlines.

"I don't know why I am such a target, but I think there's a big misconception of who I am as a person," she said in an interview Wednesday on L.A.'s 102.7 KIIS-FM.

"It's a very build-you-up-to-take-you-down industry, and I am working hard," she insisted. "I am doing a clothing line, I am starting a movie soon, I'm producing some shows. I've just been working a lot, and it's not a crime to go out and have fun with your friends … I do realize it's silly of me to give people what they want – to see me out at night."

She said her estranged father Michael isn't helping things.

Earlier this week, he claimed that someone hacked into his Twitter and posted that Lindsay is "HIV-positive." This happened a few days after he staged an intervention with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, insisting that Lindsay was abusing drugs and putting sister Ali, 16, in danger.

"No one should ever have to worry about their father saying," Lindsay said. She added that her father's public remarks distract "from all the work I am doing. It only builds negative press and that's why it really hurts me."

Aside from all the father drama — which "is just nuts," Lindsay added — she insisted: "I'm a nice person. I really love entertaining people and this is what I entered the business for."

Incidentally, Lindsay said her sister Ali — who debuted extreme eyebrows earlier this week — "is fine. And she is in school."
