Video: Pitbull Responds to Lindsay Lohan Lawsuit

Lindsay Lohan was about six months too late when she decided to file a lawsuit against Pitbull for using her name in his smash hit “Give Me Everything.” Today, Pitbull is finally addressing the lawsuit through an interview. He states that he meant no malice when using the actress as part of his lyrics:

“I was very surprised when I found out about the lawsuit. To me it was very ironic, to be honest with you. At first I read it and I thought, ‘It’s gotta be a joke.’ [But] come to find out that’s it’s very realistic.When I mention Lindsay Lohan in the record it’s really a positive message. When I say I got it locked up, if you play at the park, if you from the neighborhood, when they say you got it locked up, that means you run that area. In no way shape or form would I want to bring that on anybody and I didn’t look to defamate, degrade, or hurt someone’s career. For me mentioning it on a No. 1 record around the world, I thought it would be helping someone’s career and also keeping them relevant.”

He also invites her to join him on stage this weekend at the VMA’s, where he will be performing with Ne-Yo. Now, wouldn’t that be a site to see?!

Lindsay Lohan Suing Pitbull Over ‘Give Me Everything’ Lyrics

Lindsay Lohan has often been the subject of jokes, discussion, etc. since her various legal troubles started years ago.  This time, she’s taking legal action.  The often troubled actress is suing rapper Pitbull for the use of her name in his smash hit “Give Me Everything.”  The lyric in question is:

“Hustlers move in silence, so I’m tiptoein’ to keep flowin’/ I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”

According to the lawsuit, she claims that “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.”

Lohan is suing under the N.Y. civil law that protects individuals from being exploited for commercial purposes.  She also makes note that she is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild.”  Lohan and her lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, are looking to stop broadcasting of the song as well as unspecified damages.

Nooo, but I love this song….”grab somebody sexy, tell ’em heyyyy”…..smh you can’t snag that off the radio!  Lindsay, girl, I think your good repute went out the window awhile ago.  And why is this lawsuit happening months after the song came out? Bad timing in my opinion, but we’ll see what happens.

Al Pacino Rounds Out All Star ‘Gotti’ Cast

The Godfather. GoodFellas. Both classic mob movies.  Could this one join the ranks.

The legendary Al Pacino has signed on to star in Gotti: Three Generations; he will play Gambino crime family underboss Neil Dellacroce, a mentor to John Gotti Sr. Other members of the cast include John Travolta as mob boss Gotti, real life wife Kelly Preston as his fictional wife, Victoria, Lindsay Lohan as Kim Gotti, wife to Gotti, Jr.  Joe Pesci rounds out the primary cast as Gotti’s associate Angelo Ruggiero.

Al Pacino and Joe Pesci? Say no more.  I will definitely be seeing this when it comes out!

Lindsay Lohan Out of Rehab

 

Awwwwwwwwwww, man.

Sources confirm that trainwreck Lindsay Lohan has checked out of the Betty Ford Center after serving 90 days for a probation violation.  She’s expected to meet with her mother, Dina, to discuss her sober coach before deciding whether she will move to Los Angeles or New York ( I suggest NY).  She is due back in court February 25th for a progress hearing.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed.


Lindsay Back in Jail…and then out AGAIN?!

Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay…..get. it. TOGETHER. After failing a routine drug test and admitting to it through an extremely long Twitter post, Lindsay Lohan was thrown back in jail without the option of bail until her next probation hearing on October 22.  However, news broke this morning that Lindsay will now post bail and be released.  However, she has a bunch of rules to follow, which include:

-$300,000 bail

-another SCRAM bracelet within the next 24 hours

-stay out of places where alcohol is the chief item for sale

-not allowed to possess any drugs or be with any known drug users

-be willing to submit to a law enforcement search at any time “with or without a warrant, probable cause, or reasonable suspicion.”

I personally think this is a bunch of bulls*it.  This is not a ruling; this is a celebrity ruling.  If Lindsay Lohan were any other chick walking down the street, she would still be serving her initial sentence and going to rehab for the full three months after.  I’ve almost forgotten that she is actually a talented actress.  All we can do is hope that she stops surrounding herself with bad influences and gets some real help.

Lindsay Lohan fails her test and Paris Hilton pleads guilty

Once again, the privledged ones of Hollywood screw up. 

It was rumored earlier in the week that the recently released from prison Lindsay Lohan failed one of her daily drug tests.  Today, the talented actress addressed everyone on Twitter, confirming all of the rumors:

“Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result,” she tweeted late Friday.

“Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future.

“This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences.

“I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful….Thank you all!!!

Paris Hilton, who was arrested a few weeks ago in Vegas for cocaine possession, is pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug possession and obstructing an officer in order to avoid a felony cocaine rap.  As a result, she now has a suspended jail sentence and will most likely serve probation.

Is anyone surprised by either of these girls? This just goes to show how dangerous the Hollywood lifestyle can be if you get caught up.  I personally think that Lindsay Lohan is a talented young actress with a lot of potential.  We grew up with some of her movies; it’s sad to see her on a downward spiral more than anything.  I’m happy that she admits her wrongdoing and is willing to face the consequences.  Let’s hope there’s some change on the horizon! Now for Paris…smh.
