Sean Lennon Refuses to Namedrop

Fourth most frequently spotted Gawker Stalkee (after Chris Noth) Sean Lennon, whose new album features cameos from Lindsay Lohan, Devon Aoki, Asia Argento, Jordana Brewster and Carrie Fisher — not to mention fellow boomer-icon offspring Harper Simon and Bijou Phillips — is a stalwart when it comes to refusing to use his connections for material gain. Obviously! A San Francisco Chronicle reporter found this out the hard way:

Q: Do you ever call [older brother Julian] for career advice? Do you call anyone for advice?
A: Do I ever call anyone for advice? That's a really stupid question, dude.
Q: It is?
A: Well, I mean, "Do you ever call anyone for advice?" It's so vague. Have you ever called anyone for advice? Yes, sure. I mean, what are you trying to say? Do I call celebrities that might be interesting for me to give you an anecdote about?
Q: That's what people want to read.
A: You're so transparent, dude. Get over it. Why don't you just say, "Do you ever call celebrities?" You didn't say that because that sounded too stupid. You had to say it in this sort of backhanded way.
Q: Wait, let me rephrase it: "Do you ever call celebrities?"
A: It's just such a dumb question I can't even dignify it with an answer, dude.
Seriously, what are you trying to imply, that Sean is some kind of talentless starfucker? You are so transparent, dude.
