Merrick’s Aliana Lohan, younger sister of actress Lindsay Lohan, moved to Los Angeles in early May to pursue a music career, but says she is avoiding the party scene that enticed her sibling into a spiral of arrests and other troubles.

“Wasn’t for me,” the former model, 22, says in the new issue of Cosmopolitan. “I’ve never done drugs or anything, thank god. I did not like that scene.”

She added: “Being born in a family that’s public, that’s just been my life. I’ve never gone out of my way for attention.” Lohan, who was born in Cold Spring Harbor, said she is working with a writing partner on an EP.
