Morning Links: Lindsay Lohan Rejects Plea Bargain, Gwen Stefani Gives A Million to Japan

● Lindsay Lohan is headed to trial after rejecting a plea bargain that would have had her facing up to three months in jail — far less time than the prosecution’s desired six months to three years. She’s instead taking the case to trail in hopes of maintaining her, um, innocence. [NYDN] ● How I Met Your Mother‘s Josh Radnor is adding to the canon of college flicks with Liberal Arts, a movie that he’s set to both star in and direct. He’ll be joined by actual liberal arts student Elizabeth Olsen. [THR] ● MTV has renewed it’s once relevant The Real World for at least two more seasons. For those counting: the show’s current season, set in Las Vegas and playing out like a sleepy episode of Jersey Shore, represents the 25th season. The 26th is already in casting, meaning this guarantees a 27th and 28th. That’s a lot of strangers. THR]

● Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E., the album he was promoting on Good Morning America before his shirtless outbreak, appears to be on track to debut at number one on the Billboard charts. That’s better than if Rebecca Black took the top spot, right? [Digital Spy] ● Gwen Stefani, an early American adopter of Japanese Harajuku style, has donated $1 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami fund, saying “I’ve been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture.” [No Doubt] ● Lady Gaga maintains what sounds like a healthy relationship with her father, and per his request, only has tattoos on the left side of her body. “He asked that I remain, on one side, slightly normal,” said Lady Gaga. “I think he sees this as my Marilyn Monroe side and he sees this as my Iggy Pop side.” [Rolling Stone]
