Pitbull invites litigious crackhead Linnocent to be his date for the VMAs

wenn3361725

Last week, Linnocent decided that she simply wasn’t spending enough time in court, so she decided to sue rapper Pitbull. Apparently, Pitbull has a song called “Give Me Everything” where he name-checks Linnocent with the lyric: “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan”. Linnocent wept bitter crack tears and filed a lawsuit claiming that this one line is part of “condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.” Anyway, now that a week has passed, Pitbull has finally responded to this dumbass lawsuit. He’s surprisingly classy about the whole thing, but I find him a bit too ass-kissy. Here’s part of the video:

Planet Pit Exclusive: Pitbull speaks on Lindsay Lohan Lawsuit from Planet Pit on Vimeo.

The best defense is a surprising offense. And that’s one thing Pitbull certainly seems to have, well, locked down. The rapper behind one of the hottest summer anthems has broken his silence about Lindsay Lohan’s bizarre lawsuit filed against him last week, in which she claimed she suffered from pain and mental anguish after getting unflatteringly name checked in “Give Me Everything.”

So Pitbull did his best to make things right during an interview with Univision. No, not by offering a settlement—by asking her to be his date at this weekend’s VMAs! Where, incidentally, he will be performing said song.

Hey, go big or go home, right?

“I will be performing this at the VMAs, and as a matter of fact, I’d like to send out an invitation to Lindsay Lohan, hopefully she can come with me to the VMAs and maybe we can figure this out,” he explained.

Unsurprisingly, LiLo has yet to comment on the invitation. He might want to have a backup plus-one banked, just in case.

Still, Pitbull showed genuine remorse over the misunderstanding in his sit-down, telling Primer Impacto that he was “very surprised” upon hearing about the lawsuit.

“To me it was very ironic, to be honest with you. At first I read it, and I was like, you’ve got to be joking. I came to find out it was very realistic.”

He went on to note that he “support[s] Lindsay Lohan’s career,” and thinks of the lyrical call-out as a “positive” thing.

“When I mentioned Lindsay Lohan in the record, it was a really positive message,” he explained. “When I say ‘I got it locked up’…that means you run that neighborhood. When I say ‘I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan,’ I say she runs her world, I’m trying to run mine.”

Still, despite the song’s “positive message,” Pitbull said he never intended to “defame, degrade or hurt anyone’s career. We mention people’s names all the time. Rapping is always about double meanings and metaphors.”

Some clearly just more appreciated than others. Still, the rapper said that one good thing has come out of this “very fresh” mess:

“It means people are no longer just hearing the music, it means they’re listening to the music.”

Whether or not a certain oft-troubled starlet will be listening to the music from, say, the front row of the VMAs Sunday night, remains to be seen.

[From E! News]

I feel like he’s misusing the word “ironic”. Is he? Or is he saying that Linnocent’s lawsuit is “ironic” because his intention wasn’t to defame her, but to say that she had the world “locked up”? Whatever, I’m not going to think about it. Pitbull should have just used the word “stupid” or “moronic” or “cracked-out”.

I would honestly be surprised if Linnocent wasn’t seriously considering his offer to come to the VMAs. I’m sure she’ll still expect to be “paid” though – either for her “skills” or for some kind of “settlement” to make this dumb lawsuit go away. Bitch just wants to get paid.

Speaking of, I don’t even have the energy to go into Mother Crackhead’s cracked-out film financing hustle. Go here to read the details. Mother Crackhead is delusional and exhausting.

UPDATE: TMZ reports that Linnocent is “blowing off his apology for using her name in a song … and rejecting his invitation to the MTV VMAs. Sources close to Lindsay tell us she has no interest in going to the VMAs — and Pitbull’s apology has no impact on the lawsuit … it’s moving forward.” Dumb crackhead. You know she desperately wants to go to the VMAs.

    He’s going by that old saying, “Keep your friends close and your crackheads closer”.

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    This crackie, I swear, I bet she thinks “goodwill” is name of the place she’s going to be going for clothes and meals when she’s homeless. (If she survives long enough to become homeless.) She just has absolutely NO idea how to turn something (SHE PERCEIVES) as a negative around. It. Is. AMAZING.

    FYI – She turned him down. The apology AND the VMA invite.

    Not too many operative brain cells left, this one. And NO ONE with a lick of sense (or sense of smell) and/or talent is ever going to work with her again. (There’s a funny story about how her “people” – Dina – were begging Steven Soderbergh to deny the claims he won’t work with her/deciding she wasn’t worth the trouble to cast in that stripper role. Guess what? He told her “NO.”) :D

  3. gee says:

    This miss is hilarious. I think she should go, the publicity would be excellent for her.

  4. Kaiser says:

    bellaluna – Where did she turn him down? I can’t find anything about her response. Do you have a link?

    Nevermind, I found it. I’ll update!

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    Here’s the link to the Soderbergh story:

    It’s like karma, right? ;)

    *waves to brin & the ladies*

  6. Maritza says:

    Lindsay needs money and what better way to get than to sue Pittbull for using her name. Since he didn’t have her permission I believe she is entitled to some money.

  7. Ms. Candy says:

    @brin: U made me chuckle at that comment.

    Now this chick (Lindsay) I don’t understand at all- U suing because Pit used Ur name in a song- GTFOH

    If that is the case they everybody should be suing somebody for doing that in the industry.

    SMH

  8. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I was watching some child stars special on E! where the director of Freaky Friday said Michelle Tractenberg landed Linnocents role, but couldn’t get out of her commitment to Buffy. So they gave the role to Lindsay and it pretty much launched her career. Damn you Michelle. If only you had taken that role, we wouldn’t be dealing with Linnocents crack antics!

  9. Seal Team 6 says:

    I was going to tweet Pitbull about what a flaming IDIOT enabler he was, but now I don’t have to.

    This shows what a tone-deaf crackie she is — the PR and red carpet photos alone online, in People, etc.

    And, for people asking upthread: no one has to ask her permission to use her name in a song, or in this article, or anywhere else. The only thing she can do is sue for libel or/and defamation if they LIE ABOUT HER. I am surprised people actually think she is legally entitled to damages.

  10. Quest says:

    Why sue Pitbull for stating the obvious…dumb ass cracky.

  11. Thea says:

    I personally think Pitbull was being sarcastic. Lindsay needs to get over her crack whore self and call it a day. Her career is done. Ruined. She is the laughing stock of Hollywood and so ignorant can not even realize it. She has passed delusional.

  12. ladybert62 says:

    Linnocent has realized that litigation can be a source of income if she can find a lawyer dumb enough to sue on her behalf (California is filled to overflowing with dumb lawyers – trust me, this I know for a fact!)

    She should go to the event with him and then when she stumbles/falls down as usual, she can sue the event for a personal injury case – easier to prove and potentially more money!

    Linnocent wake up and smell the money!!

  13. Erinn says:

    The whole lawsuits insane. I always assumed it was ‘locked up’ because of her whole jail thing. Which, even if it was, it wasn’t a lie. If you could sue everyone who told a truth about you, she’d be able to sue every news show, or gossip rag that mentioned her.

  14. meg says:

    Linnocent screwed herself BIG TIME. That man is soooooo freakin sexy. I wanna go the crappy VMAs just to sit next to him and feel his thigh all night LOL (I’d even wear a crappy straw-blonde wig)

  15. Kimble says:

    LOL @Meg – for some reason I find Pitbull sexy too and that makes me feel dirty as I suspect he’s a misogynistic douche

  16. corey says:

    @Erinn ITA

    “Last week, Linnocent decided that she simply wasn’t spending enough time in court, so she decided to sue rapper Pitbull.”
    This made me lol :)

  17. zesty says:

    “Got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan” means she runs her own world? That girl can’t even run around the block. I cry foul on that one.

  18. Quest says:

    @Meg – LOL…I feel dirty ’cause he reminds me of my brother but yeah sexy.

  19. filthycute says:

    @Kaiser, he is indeed misusing the word ironic.

    And he IS an ass-kisser.

  20. werty says:

    I hope she goes and thats she does something (crackie) epic.

  21. the original bellaluna says:

    ladybert62 – Yes, but in this case (I believe I read when this first came out), the suit was filed in NY by the same “legal beagle” as the Milkawha? suit. E*Trade.

    I think the reasoning was that in CA, if St. Linnocent the Litigious lost, she’d have to pay Pitbull’s attorneys’ fees.

    Personally, even if the judge throws it out, I hope they make her pay ALL the atty’s fees. Teach her a little lesson about filing frivolous lawsuits. ;)

  22. Tamiko says:

    @meg–YES.THIS!! He is so freaking sexy. Those lyrics are NASTY, though. I had the opportunity to see him live. Excellent show, very energetic. And sexy. Very, very sexy.

  23. mannequin says:

    Well, this just proves what a nitwit Lohan is. She should be grateful that someone like him even cared to mention her. She’s totally irrelevant, a speck of sand on the beach.

  24. jover says:

    They are both douche’s pitbull is a no talent rapper that takes/steals other people’s beats and overlays his own pointless lyrics – calle ocho anyone – and what more needs to be said about lilo – more importantly, how many teens and twentysomethings that are cool and actually know real music watch this corporate crapfest anyway. Music vids are passe, look at all the vids gaga has done and most are forgotten while the great ones of the 80s – MJ madonna and others – are still watched when mtv was young, fresh, and creative not the corporate/reality show crap that it is now.

  25. Kasey says:

    I’ve never heard the song but based on what I first thought when I read about the suit and the lyrics I’m inclined to believe him. IMO the lyrics sounded like he was giving her credit for something.

    He’s comparing himself to LiLo and he’s not putting himself down which means he’s extolling something about her in light of being locked up. Let’s face it, sure we can’t figure it out and don’t like it but at this point it seems like LiLO ‘runs’ the CA legal system. And that is exactly what I interpreted from his lyrics.

    Kind of like if Jay-Z wrote and sang “I’m of great renown near and far. Just like Kim I’m a superstar. ” Then she sued for defamation because he said she had a tape on that kimsuperstar website. We all know she does but he would be saying that like her, h feels he is well known and unbelievingly a superstar ,no mention of her tape or the fact that it’s appalling she’s become a superstar because of it. Just like she couldn’t sue him for libel LiLo can’t sue him because he’s just pointing out something she inexplicably succeeds in. He’s doing her more good than harm keeping her a little more relevant.

    Oh and can someone please tell to me the last positive, noteworthy thing LiLo has done. I can’t think of anything after Mean Girls or when that was. Such a waste of talent!

    Mornin Ladies

    Is it too early for a cracktini?

    Ah, the one year anniversary of the “someone spilled a drink on my SCRAM!”. Good times! I know she ‘supposedly’ turned down his invite, as ‘a source’ (Dina) said she ‘had no interest in attending the VMA’s” but thats a crock. (or a crack?) Like CB said, you know she’s just dying to attend, especially sitting in the front row with Pitbull and with all camera’s trained on her more than ever, due to this ludicrous lawsuit.

    Again, I always thought this lawsuit was the machinations of Dina. If Blohan wants to go to the VMA’s, she’ll go, regardless of what Dina has to say.

    I may be in the minority here but she still has 2 days to decide. Mother Crackhead NEEDS the payout, Baby Crack NEEDS the attention. Lets see which one wins out.

  28. Kasey says:

    And another thing…..I think I’m going to have to join in on using the moniker Linnocent. This girl is so used to crying “innocent” and “victim” all the time. I feel like I could run into her and compliment a cute outfit she may have the good fortune of wearing and she’d instantly and vehemently retort, ” I did NOT steal this! I was asked personally designer (during one of my drug hazes) to feel free to try on and walk out of any store to model their clothing! Who are you calling a thief?!”
    Instead of acknowledging that she was sort-a paid a compliment for beating the CA legal system whom (IMO) are the real targets of Pittbull’s “condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements”, she immediately protests that she’s been victimized and abused. What the what? I don’t see how on earth she’d win this suit but from where I’m standing and what i’ve seen she runs the neighborhood/world of the CA legal system.

    Its sickening.

  29. Madisyn says:

    Boo

    THAT was FAB U LOUS! Two f*ckin snaps.

  30. the original bellaluna says:

    Madisyn, dahling, join me in the vodka vat for a cracktini! I’ve been waiting for you.

    Did you see my last post on the Linnocent’s the Delusional Cracken Marilyn thread?

    I’ve posted a good link on this one as well, about how Steven Soderbergh shot down Dina’s pleas to deny he refused to work with Linnocent on that stripper flick.

    Schadenfreude? Karma? Hmmmm…

  31. 4Real says:

    Of course the lawsuit is going forward. She’s sunk so low that nobody will hire her and that crack don’t buy itself!

  32. Innocent says:

    Good for Lindsay turning down his offer. Pitbull is a terrible rapper.
    I will be watching the VMAs because of Britney. Lindsay attending would just be an added bonus.

  33. Seal Team 6 says:

    You can feel that money burning in your pocket already, can’t you, Dina? You are a disgrace. Go over to TMZ or something.

  34. the original bellaluna says:

    4Real – Why do you think her knees are always scabby. ;)

  35. bluhare says:

    When you guys get bored in the Vat, I brought the latte machine for some lattes with the crackonut milk I don’t use when I make the crackonut cake with extra sprinkles (on the buffet).

    The crackonut milk really gives a latte a boost! There’s some sea jasper powder for garnish as well for those of you who like a little extra.

  36. Innocent says:

    Instead of acknowledging that she was sort-a paid a compliment for beating the CA legal system whom (IMO) are the real targets of Pittbull’s “condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements”, she immediately protests that she’s been victimized and abused. What the what? I don’t see how on earth she’d win this suit but from where I’m standing and what i’ve seen she runs the neighborhood/world of the CA legal system.

    @Casey
    Correction
    Shawn Holley and Blair Berk run the CA legal system :P
    Lindsay has a crazy somewhat undeserved criminal file due to that ridiculous sentence imposed in 2010 but with the exception of serving 13 full days she hasn’t served more than a few hours thanks to them.

  37. Kasey says:

    @Innocent-are Holly and Berk her lawyers or were they judges (sorry I didn’t devoutly follow the cases I only paid attention to the outcomes?

    Either way though, I think she’s crying victim for no reason. There was no accusation, no defamation. Just truth for others to read into on their own. CRACK!

  38. MJ says:

    She should be thanking him for keeping her (slightly) relevant.

  39. TheHeat says:

    Oh hi Dina…oops, I mean @Innocent.

    (eye roll)

  40. Bess says:

    @Madisyn,

    I totally believe that this lawsuit was Dina’s idea and that she’s pushing Lilo not to accept Pittbull’s apology, attend the VMA’s and drop the matter.

    Also agree that Linnocent would accept his offer to attend the VMA’s in a hot minute for the press attention alone.

  41. mia girl says:

    I watched the whole video and I don’t think he was ass kissing at all. He sounded pretty reasonable. I just think all of us on this site (with the exception of @Innocent) are so incensed by Lohan that if someone doesn’t laugh her off then they are somehow enabling her. His comments were sensible and I think already “lawyered” if you know what I mean.

    Also I don’t think he misused ironic. He found irony in the fact that a record that he perceives to have a positive message is being accused of being something negative.

  42. the original bellaluna says:

    bluhare, that sounds lovely! Could you throw a crack-cube in mine? It’s so hot here!

    Although the vodka vat is considerably cooler now, since I reverse-rigged an old water heater to become the vodka hydrant’s refrigeration system. (just. don’t. ask.) :)

    See, My Twin, ask and ye shall receive! ;)

    mia girl, I’m going to tend to agree with you. His lyrics (if you will) were probably “pre-lawyered” as you think.

    And I still think it’s ironic (and I’m using it correctly) that Blohan didn’t go after Eminem for “We Made You.” Because Em would have put her in her place: 6 feet under (career-wise) at the very least. Which is, incidentally, 4 feet higher (career-wise) than where she is now.

  43. Madisyn says:

    bellaluna

    Its Friday, a drinking day for moi. Its hotter than a ‘Lohan’s’ tit today already, so I’m not in the best of moods.

    I did get your thoughts on OUR cooling problem. I like the refrigeration unit idea better than the insulation blanket. Better to cool the vodka with my dear.

    Speaking of messages, did you get my message on the Aug. 24th, “LL really jacked up her face before KK wedding”? Its post 87. I have a solution to our “No Lohan” policy and need your approval before I put it into place.

    Oh, goody, CB did the Dina Lohan post, I gotta check it out. I’ll be waiting for your thoughts.

    Bess

    I couldn’t agree more. Every word you wrote are my exact thoughts. Come. Join us in our ‘pool’. Grab a floatation device and enjoy.

  44. margaret says:

    I liked the interview. I had not been exposed to him before I watched this and loved how calm, articulate, and professional he was. He seems, at least in this interview, nice and someone I would definitely hang with. With regards to Ms Lohan, what can be said that has not already been said….. but is that really a picture of her? Was it taken before or after Kim’s wedding?

  45. Meghna says:

    Idiot! He’s hot, and she could of gotten POSITIVE publicity! Can’t wait for her to FAIL with this lawsuit. It’s slang, so good luck proving in court that this was a negative reference. She is such an idiot! Stop giving her any press…

  46. the original bellaluna says:

    Madisyn, yes, today has been a pisser for me as well.

    First of all, it’s hot & humid as a Parasite wart here.

    Secondly, when I had the complete audacity to turn my back on the toddler (for maybe all of 5 seconds!) to grab myself a hardboiled egg from the fridge, he had the audacity to grab a can of opened (but with the lid still attached) olives off the counter and shove a baby finger into it. (He does LOVE his black olives!)

    TRAUMA!! TRIAGE!! You’d have thought the world was coming to an end because I had the (further?) audacity to pull his finger out, wash it off, ointment it, and bandage the cuts. While trying to keep him still. (Someone really needs to alert X-Tina, so she knows there’s a fellow negligent mother out there – SARCASM. No lynch mobs, please.)

    Now he is asleep. Thank. God. Someone, ANYONE, please pass me a cracktini, a straw (for the vodka pool), and some Pixie Dust. (Spoon it over, Tink!)

    Yes, I really like the idea of the invisible electric zapping fence! Ingenious! (Oooh! Could we make it solar? You know, for the environment.)

  47. katyalia says:

    Go after Eminem for ‘We made you’? For what? Calling her ‘practically a 10′? She really should have tried for ‘Same song and dance’ though. It has always surprised me that she didn’t sue for that one.

  48. Madisyn says:

    bellaluna

    Quick, here’s a DOUBLE cracktini.

    I installed the ‘pool’

    You installed the refrigeration unit.

    As were both having a bad day and its hotter than a ‘Lohan’s’ tit, I say, f*ck it, lets hire some gorgeous and hunky guys to install the electrified fence and the solar panels. We can just float in our pool with a couple of cracktini’s and enjoy the show.

    Lets just take it out of the slush fund we keep. The one with all our winnings we got when Innocent and her ilk keeps betting Blohan will change and WE keep betting the opposite. We got a nice stash saved up. Might as well put it to good use and a good cause.

  49. ol cranky says:

    @maritza – you’re joking right? you really thing she deserves some money for mentioning her name in a song? sorry, she’s a public figure so a name mention without permission is not something someone has to license the rights to use

  50. Cherry Rose says:

    @Jover – I agree with you that music has declined sharply in the last ten years, but must you always reference to the past? We get it, music was awesome back then, they were real musicians, blah blah blah. It gets tiring to see that every post you make must constantly say the same thing. All the good music being made today is underground stuff. Sure, they might not pull in crowds like Pink Floyd or Jimi Hendrix, but they’re a lot more talented than the artists popular today.

    Anyway, you know Linsday wants to go to the VMAs. She’s probably weighing the options of getting attention, versus possibly getting a nice settlement.

    OR, she could go to the VMAs with Pitbull, and then after that continue on the path of suing him. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Lindsay chose that route.

  51. Andie B says:

    Ms Lohan needs more to think about and more to do with her time..whoever is running Marilyn Monroe’s estate should sue her for impersonating her and proclaiming herself the new MM. The poor dear is delusional..her dizbo of a mother should not be drinking with her either.

  52. Kim says:

    She is so desperate for attention hence why she is “suing” him – just to keep her name in public eye via the lawsuit. She is such a crackhead and she isnt invited to the VMAs im sure so you know she will say yes. Cracky wouldnt turn down a paparrazzi event.

  53. Kim says:

    He is being nice and proving to have class about the whole thing yet a part of me wants him to say YES Lindsay you are a crackhead, everyone thinks you are a crackhead and you should be locked up so no i dont feel bad writing that lyric. Get a job, get a life woman!

  54. the original bellaluna says:

    Madisyn, fabulous idea! I could use a nice show with my cocktails. ;)

    Kim, Pitbull invited Blohan to go with him to the VMA’s – he’s performing the song there.

  55. Madisyn says:

    bellaluna

    Make sure to read what else I installed on the property. Its on the Dina post. I usually check with you on installing anything but since you were passed out on the raft, I made an executive decision.

    Waiting for your thoughts.

  56. the original bellaluna says:

    Madisyn – LOVING the high dive! But we must agree to call it a “kamikaze” when jumping into the pool, not a “cannonball.” (My only stipulation.)

  57. Madisyn says:

    bellaluna

    Talk to Bess, I’m graceful, (fuck me, I’m not) I swan dive but otherwise DONE!

    What, no comment on ‘bellaluna’s passed out on the raft, go ahead and cannonball her’?, I thought fer sure, you’d say something about that.

  58. the original bellaluna says:

    Madisyn, nah, I needed to wake up anyway – it was time for another drink! ;)

  59. I never thought he was dissing her in the first place or talking about her jail stint. As I said in a previous post, I thought he meant it as a shout out or giving her props for being streetwise. Lindsay is to stupid, broke, and narcissistic to get that though.

    Not surprised she didn’t accept his apology, but very surprised, she turned down the VMA invite. Thought for sure she’d show up and pull a, “Oh, look at me. I’m such a victim. Feel so sorry for me. Now look at my saggy boobs. Ooops, all the camera flash bulbs made me fall down and go boom!”

    But I’m sober and IT’S NOT MY FAULT!

  60. Madisyn says:

    Miss D

    That last comment was brilliant. Spot on!

    I too am surprised, she didn’t pull a “Lohan” By that I mean, get what Blohan wants out of it (attention) and then lie or whatnot to not give the other side what they agreed too. (not dropping the lawsuit) Of course, its not Sunday yet, you and I agree, she absolutely could still go, especially if Dina pisses her off and she goes specifically to defy her. Its Blohan, its possible!

  61. Memphis says:

    Pitbull, what the hell were you thinking inviting crackie to the VMA’s?! Damn it Pitbull! If you feed her ego she will never go away! She will think she is popular.. Damn it, I bet she feels all special and wanted now ;(

    But since she turned you down quit with the making nice and go for the throat!Somebody needs to teach this crackhead that she doesn’t rule the world .

  62. jover says:

    Thank you cherry rose for the constructive criticism; I’m not an egotist so i can accept maybe my comments have gotten into a rut (although you don’t dispute their overall veracity); Permit me to ramble late at nite.
    First, my comments are being echoed by millions; go on youtube type in any legendary band/guitar god from the 60s/70s listen to their live performances and then take the time to read 5/10 pages of comments which i always do. The comments brake down as follows: where is my time machine; no-one plays like this today; why can’t our music be as good,etc,etc it’s not just me it’s many millions that sense and know music and much else in pop culture just is so diminished, uninspired it’s one reason why facebook etc, is so absorbing because the aspects of pop culture just aren’t that engaging anymore so through the internet people are creating their own pop culture; I’m watching letterman a month ago and he ask a 13yr old kid in the audience who’s his favorite band: answer zeppelin.
    There are other issues that many are quite aware of; a band like zeppelin was almost larger than life existing before music vids and media saturation, they could attain a legendary aura, and they did it without the incessant marketing and promoting of today. Bands today have so far strayed from the large stage that a zeppelin inhabited that there isn’t any excitement. I’ve seen u2 a number of times they are better than most, but then i and millions of others watch any of zep’s live songs on youtube, and it just feels epic; u2 is just a generic band by comparison.
    The media saturated world we live in has completely destroyed the aesthetic distance between the artist and the audience; everything is common and diminished. This is a complex and subtle issue because it revolves around how music was presented then compared to now and i am one of many cognizant of what has happened.
    A poster remarked on a youtube live performance of a band from that era remarked that i pity kids today; their golden oldies are gonna suck. Because music and entertainment today is so balkanized by class, ethnicity, etc. kids when they grow up won’t even share popular culture reference points like music.
    Last, the wall street journal recently reviewed a book by simon reynolds called Retromania; I read the review haven’t got the book yet – but it made the points in far more detail than i and others have made, pop culture in general just doesn’t have the oomph the appeal that it had even a generation ago, and the state of music is just one aspect of this larger phenom.
    Sorry, for the rant cherry rose.

    Stupid bitch pittbull was cool enough to be kind to you after your ridiculous lawsuit but than again that’s just the type of person he is he’s very generoso for everything and to everyone. But at the same time he probably doesn’t want anything to do with you no one in hollywood does.

    She should just feel lucky she was mentioned in a big club song and a good one for that matter I love that song. This just shows you the type of person she really is f that crack whore I use to really like her for her past work like “mean girls” one of my favorite films that I could always laugh to. But sorry lin you lost me. You deserve all these comments…

    Lindsay is the only one who doesn’t realize she’s a nobody now

    Man this is backfiring on them in a big way isn’t it. Pitbull’s getting more PR mileage out this than the Lohans. I’m sure he’s got a few more new fans because of it. Ha!

    The only reason Lindsay turned down his invitation is because White Oprah is still in town. You know, taking meetings, shopping her script and doing important movie mogul stuff. I’m sure we’d all agree that Lindsay would go to the VMAs in a heartbeat. She wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to get dressed up, have her picture taken, get drunk, fall down and cause more crack drama and mayhem to keep her in the tabloids for another week.

    BTW…Tink says she would be more than happy to be Pitbull’s date. I’m surprised she didn’t annoy you guys yesterday with the way she was flying around the treehouse dancing to the song.

    Lindsay is a total moron who, as Janet Charlton pointed out, is on Tara Reid Road. She’s insanely greedy and hoping to keep money flowing in because her career is essentially over due to addiction, stupidity and the aforementioned greed. Hopefully, she won’t be turning tricks in a few years, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

    Jover – Do you ever appreciate the irony that the first video played on MTV (back when they actually PLAYED videos, all day, every day, without commercials – whew! just really dated myself there, didn’t I?) was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles? (No sarcasm here, I’m not being offensive.)

    Prophetic and altogether sad, I think. Just the entire situation. I mean, I was a kid in the 80′s. We had Oingo Boingo (Danny Elfman has written numerous movie scores, including Batman [with Michael Keaton], The Nightmare Before Christmas, and too many others for me to name – he’s a freakin’ GENIOUS!); Duran Duran; Tears for Fears; Depeche Mode; Berlin; X; The Pretenders; Stray Cats; English Beat; Modern English; too many others for me to mention! What happened to THE MUSIC?!?!? Who, on the scene RIGHT NOW, is capable of writing movie scores? Hell, who, on the scene right now even KNOWS WHAT A MOVIE SCORE IS?

    Someone should write a song called “MTV Killed the Music Scene.” I’d listen.

    sorry. so sorry. /rant

  69. bellaluna- Stephen Trask, my fusband (fake husband), is the man to go to, if you want a movie score written. He is a musical genius. Most people will know his name from “Hedwig, and the Angry Inch”, but he’s done a ton of movies. I would fake divorce his ass if he went anywhere near Dina Lohan’s debacle.

    “And, for people asking upthread: no one has to ask her permission to use her name in a song, or in this article, or anywhere else. The only thing she can do is sue for libel or/and defamation if they LIE ABOUT HER. I am surprised people actually think she is legally entitled to damages.”

    I was just about to ask about that Seal Team. Thanks.

    I’ve heard plenty of songs and raps where famous names are used, be it positive or negative, and I’ve head yet to hear about other lawsuits.

    Honestly, sometimes I feel sorry for Lindsey because I do think she’s talented, but this is out and out stupid. The only way she would have a case if it’s false; then she’d have a slander suit. But she was locked up. Oh well, gotta find another way to make money.

    @jover – Nice to see someone on this thread that can take constructive criticism. Like I said, for the most part I do agree with all your statements. It is sad that music has been reduced to this. I mean, you hardly ever hear of any rock bands winning awards anymore. It’s all pop, country music, and rap.
    Which is why I’ve gone underground. None of those artists have sold out, because they make the music for themselves, not to create another single. A lot of them deserve a lot more credit and attention than they get, but that is the price of not selling yourself out for the sake of money or fame.
