Lindsay and creepy Calum took their lovefest from the Bahamas to New York this week in their matching leather jackets. While LL's new romance has definitely helped overshadow those coke scandal rumors a bit, Dina took it upon herself to open up to Us Weekly on her daughter's behalf. Here's more:

On the coke scandal:
“We’re not reading anything about it. You can’t let it bother you. We work so hard, then some girl just tried to make money off her [for that tape]. Lindsay doesn’t even know who her friends are."

On LL's love for the nightlife:
“This [premieres and parties] is the fun part of the business. She’ll be 21 in a few months. Regardless, of course, as a parents, you set boundaries and scold them. But there are these dark stories – she is so misunderstood. All she wants to do is act and have a somewhat normal life. When you’re 20, it’s normal to want to go to The Ivy, to go to the hot stores. She can’t live in a bubble.”

As much as we're used to hearing about Lohan's wild ways, we're totally sick of her mother. Dina obviously cares about her daughter, but if she really wants Lindsay to have a "normal life," she should think twice about broadcasting everything to the media.
