As the political debates rage on, you might be wondering who some of your favorite celebs will be supporting. In this edition of Pop Ups we find who Lindsay Lohan and Lena Dunham are endorsing and to top it off, we check out Rihanna's new seductive album cover, the record's title and the release date.

Lohan Loves Mitt

Lindsay Lohan may be known for staring in "Mean Girls," (still quoted by gay men despite coming out eight years ago) and other epic teen movies, but she’ll most likely be remembered for her train wreck life. And Lohan has made headlines yet again for making another bad life decision: supporting Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the actress said she backed Mittens on Thursday at a ginseng-drink launching party.

"I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think [my vote] is Mitt Romney," she said. She added there is more to her reasoning but said, "you’re going to have to wait for that."

Stacey Dash, best known for her role on "Clueless," tweeted recently that she too will back Romney for president. The actress, however, received a massive backlash of tweets on the social networking site, and one person even told her to kill herself. The SF Gate reports that Dash felt "saddened and shocked" by the attacks.

"I really don’t understand the fury. I don’t understand it. I don’t get it... I am shocked. Sad, not angry. Saddened and shocked. Really shocked," she said. "But you know what, you can’t expect everyone to agree with you... (It was) pretty harsh. It is my right as an American citizen. It’s my constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for president... And I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character."

Hopefully Lilo won’t face the same harsh fate.

’Girls’ Star Backs Obama, Marriage Equality

Everybody’s favorite Mean Girl may be in Romney’s corner but the creator of HBO’s hit series "Girls" recently tweeted that she will be voting for President Barack Obama this November and is a supporter for marriage equality.

Lena Dunham, who also stars in the TV show, made it clear that she supports Obama, the Hollywood Gossip reported.

"I’m voting because I want to party at my sister’s future wedding #ForAll," Dunham wrote. She then tweeted a photo of herself with the words "marriage equality" written on her hand in black marker. In the corner of the picture is the Obama logo "For All" and his website.

Dunham’s political announcement comes after it was announced that she would be getting a $3.5 million book deal for a series of essays.

Rihanna is ’Unapologetic’ for Scantily Clad New Album Cover

It seems as though pop star Rihanna doesn’t know how to not make music as she recently announced that she would drop her seventh album on November 19. This makes it the third consecutive yearly album to come out in November.

On Thursday, the "We Found Love" diva tweeted the album cover and the LP’s title, "Unapologetic" and the word certainly seems to fit. The image shows Ri Ri on a white background and wearing...well, nothing at all. Words, such as "Diamonds, "Love," #Navy," and "Side Effects" are written across her body and she is covering one of her boobs while the other one is scratched out with back ink. The cover also prominently shows off the pop star’s newest tattoo, an Egyptian goddess, which was previously reported by EDGE.

    Given LiLo’s chronic troubles, if she’s a friend of Mitt the Twit he doesn’t need too many enemies. As for Ms Dash, while I disagrre with her choice she has the right to make it. The hatred she experienced is wrong.
