In a new interview with Nylon magazine, Lohan says she can't change the fact that she's lived out her "college years" in the media spotlight.

"The websites, the gossip pages, and all of that stuff have hurt my career – they’re like the Burn Books of Hollywood… but I really don’t feel like I should have to prove myself to anyone because of living out my college years in the public eye. I’m glad everything happened the way it did," Lohan said.

Lohan also says she relates to, and respects, Britney Spears.

"She’s marketed as an entertainer, which is what she is. Not necessarily as, like, an artist. And I respect that about her, cause she doesn’t want to pretend," Lohan said.
