Getty Images File PhotoRock you like a hurricane: Noted meteorological maven Lindsay Lohan used Twitter to question why people are in “SUCH a panic” about the storm lashing the East Coast.

Superstorm Sandy has given us quite a window into the minds of the stars.

Take Lindsay Lohan, for example. Here’s what she tweeted about the storm: “WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i’m calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace.”

Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump took the opportunity to deliver a linguistics lesson: “The phrase “hunkered down” comes from Scandinavian word, huka, to crouch and was popularized in the US by Pres Johnson.”

Ricky Gervais, not surprisingly, delivered the funniest Sandy tweet: “This “Sandy” who’s on TV all the time and is blowing the entire east coast, I assume she’s a Kardashian right?”

Can you guess who’s behind each of these?

  1. “Trump Tower still standing due to last minute, multi-layer coating of hair spray!”
  2. “The dogs do not want to go outside — the cats have not moved from their beds all day — the horses, donkeys, chickens are all inside — are you?”
  3. “Upon arriving in NYC, #Sandy has requested that we now refer to her as Saundra.”
  4. “Grateful my Mom is away from #Sandy and in Algeria working toward peace in #Mali.”
  5. “Mayor Bloomberg going with zip up neck sweater to fight Sandy. Shows preparedness. Windy: zip it up Storm over: back down.”

Rocker Carlos Santana wasn’t really dissing Justin Bieber, really

Local hero Carlos Santana wants to clarify his Justin Bieber comments. “Collaborations should only happen between two people who complement each other,” he told DNA. “I cannot go ahead and collaborate with Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber.”

He later posted on Facebook: “My accurate statement was ‘By the grace of GOD, It is not impossible to collaborate (share music) with Mr. Andrea Bocelli, Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber. It’s a matter of the right song and some willingness.’” Phew.

Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
