Lohan plays joke with pregnancy tweet
Lindsay Lohan isn’t going to be a mother, yet.
The actress confirmed Tuesday morning that a cryptic late-night Twitter posting hours earlier that stated she was pregnant was an April Fools’ Day prank.
The “Liz & Dick” star’s proclamation that she was expecting a child caused a frenzy on social media, and several entertainment news outlets reported the tweet while raising the possibility it was a prank.
On Tuesday morning, Lohan deleted the tweet and wrote that she was having some fun. The actress wrote, “Where’s everyone’s sense of humor?”
Calls to Lohan’s attorney, Mark Jay Heller, and her publicist were not returned.
The 26-year-old has until May to enroll in a lockdown rehab to satisfy her sentence in a reckless driving and lying to police case.
John, Taupin to get Songwriters award
Elton John and his longtime songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, will be honored at this year’s Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
John and Taupin, who teamed on most of the singer’s best-known hits, will receive the Johnny Mercer Award during the June 13 ceremony in New York.
A Tuesday news release said the award goes to previous inductees — John and Taupin were inducted in 1992 — whose body of work upholds the standards set by Mercer, a co-founder of Capitol Records.
John and Taupin have teamed on some of rock ’n’ roll’s most well-known songs, including “Rocket Man,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Daniel” and “Candle in the Wind.”
This year’s inductees are Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner, Holly Knight, JD Souther and Tony Hatch.
