(Newser) – From one tabloid obsession to another:  Lindsay Lohan tells Nylon magazine that she respects Britney Spears—for her honesty, not for her talent, which she cheerfully disparages. “She’s marketed as an entertainer, which is what she is. Not necessarily as, like, an artist," LiLo opines. "And I respect that about her, cause she doesn’t want to pretend.” Which begs the question: Does LiLo consider herself an artist? More from her interview:

  • “There’s not much I can do about the fact that I’ve become a kind of tabloid obsession. And yes, the websites, the gossip pages, and all of that stuff have hurt my career.”
  • On future projects: “I spoke to Sean Penn again the other day.  We’re trying to get Seth Rogen for this project, but Seth won’t call us back.”
