Lindsay Lohan Says She Wasn't Drinking Before Bar Fall
We don't see Lindsay Lohan on the big screen that much these days but the web and the small screen are filled with her exploits. One of those incidents earned the No. 9 spot in our countdown of the Top 11 Music Tumble and Falls of 11. Here it is:

(TMZ) Lindsay Lohan says she was NOT loaded on grandpa's cough medicine -- aka booze, hooch, or liquor -- when she busted her butt in NYC ... telling TMZ flat-out, "I was NOT drinking, nor do I drink!"

LiLo is on the defensive after being photographed going down hard outside the Motor City Bar on Wednesday -- because some people had the audacity to think Lindsay Lohan falling down outside a bar may mean she fell off the wagon.

But that's not the case ... because Lohan tells TMZ, "I was with my brother, sister and friends. I was making a joke. They're trying to make something out of nothing." Lindsay adds, "Just because I'm out doesn't mean I'm drinking." more on this story

(Gibson) Ozzy Osbourne has suffered a dental dilemma. Last week, his two front teeth fell out, and the rocker had to call his manager/wife Sharon Osbourne just before she made an appearance on U.S. late-night show Chelsea Lately to figure out what to do.

Sharon told Chelsea, "I just got a phone call from him... He goes, 'I've got a problem... My two bottom crowns have fallen out,'" reports the Toronto Sun.

"I said, 'The two front bottom ones?' He said, 'Yeah.' I go, 'We've got a problem...' He's got a show to do on Thursday." more on this story

Steven Tyler Did Fall, But Not Off The Wagon
This top 11 of 11 comes full circle with Steven Tyler's assuring fans that his fall that took the No. 1 spot had nothing to do with him falling off the wagon. Here it is: (Rock News Desk) Steven Tyler accepts people suspected he was drinking again after news broke of his latest collapse – and he knows he'll live under the shadow of those doubts for ever.

The singer smashed two teeth and sustained a black eye when he took a tumble in his hotel shower in Paraguay on Tuesday, forcing the postponement of Aerosmith's concert in Asuncion. But the band delivered their rescheduled 17-song show on Wednesday night – with Tyler, 63, even playing harmonica despite the pain in his mouth.

The official reason for his collapse was given as an attack of food poisoning. But the singer told the Today Show that he knew many people would assume it was drink-related, following the spectacular dive in 2009 which forced Aerosmith on hiatus and sent him into rehab more on this story
