Ne-Yo claims Lindsay Lohan’s new album is ‘ridiculously fabulous’

I think singer/songwriter Ne-Yo has been drinking antifreeze instead of letting it leak out of the bottom of his car. Because that’s the only possible – rational – explanation I can come up with for why in the world he would say that Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming album sounds like anything other than shit. Well antifreeze ingestion or financial gain. Ne-Yo, who has written hit songs for Usher, Chris Brown, Whitney Houston, and Britney Spears (and about two dozen more successful pop singers) somehow got talked into writing a few tunes for Lindsay Lohan. And apparently the hit maker thinks it came out well.

Ne-Yo admits he had his doubts about Lindsay Lohan’s vocal talents when he was asked to write a song for her upcoming third album, due later this year. “I gotta admit, we were like … ‘Lindsay Lohan?'” Ne-Yo tells Billboard magazine. “I mean, I’ve written for Beyonce Knowles, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Celine Dion and … Lindsay Lohan?”

But after hearing her sing on the track, called “Bossy,” Ne-Yo says he and producer Stargate were so impressed that he called Lohan to say how sorry he was for not believing in her. “She did a ridiculously fabulous job,” Ne-Yo tells the magazine. “I was so shocked I had to call her and apologize for what I was thinking because she did so good. I think the world is gonna be surprised.”

Earlier this month Ne-Yo told PEOPLE that he and Stargate approached the Lohan project “as a challenge. ‘Can we make a song for Lindsay Lohan that people were gonna take seriously?’ I think we did it,” he said.

Mark it down: Today Ne-Yo’s credibility (and career) just jumped the shark. LiLo’s first album actually wasn’t the worst thing ever. It was semi-decent pop, if you’re into that kind of music. It wasn’t some Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie crap where it was cringe-worthy awful. But from the leaked version of Lindsay’s upcoming single “Bossy,” there’s nothing “ridiculously fabulous” about it. If I were a well-respected songwriter, I wouldn’t want my name attached to anything having to do with Lindsay Lohan, unless it’s the phrase “totally shot her down.”

    she has a good voice. if its a good song… then im sure it will be pretty great (for that kind of music). She isn’t untalented. in fact she’s got better vocal chops than britney, paris (of course), ashlee simpson, and the like.

  2. Hollz says:

    I agree AC- she has a decent voice…
    but not better then Britney…on par with Paris and Ashlee

  3. Bodhi says:

    She is way better than Paris or Nicole, but Asslee Simpson-Wentz 😉 did have that run of Chicago awhile back & thats not an easy job.

    I doubt LL will have any big hits off this album. Unless she does drugs off the CD case…

  4. Devilgirl says:

    Better than Britney? If that is the case, then why hasn’t she sold a fraction of the cd’s that Britney has? How many top 10’s or number ones has she had? How many music awards? Britney isn’t a Beyonce, but she sure as hell is a much better vocalist than Lindsey Lohan. The only thing Lohan may have a leg up on her on is a crack pipe, but that also could be up for debate!

  5. lulu says:

    um… she is not even better than shit!! some of you need to take a lesson on what true talent is..

  6. vdantev says:

    I’m sure Ne-Yo said that after the check cleared.

  7. Syko says:

    He just wants to nail her. Men will say anything to achieve that.

  8. the devil says:

    he gets a big cut of every cd that sells after the record company recoups the money they put out to get it made.



  9. fgh says:

    Her voice is rather vanilla and un supported. At least Scarlett moaned off key with gusto.

  10. Because I say So says:

    First off– Ne-Yo is most likely gay, so him wanting to bang her probably isn’t motivation. (Anyway, who would??) He put his cred on the line so now he has to save face and say how awesome it is.

  11. LiLi says:

    what guy uses the word “fabulous”?

  12. Silly Lilly says:

    Okay after listening… Ne Yo has written a horrible song. HORRIBLE. I am reasonably sure that this was a bottom barrel pull out of the drawer and throw it at some celebutard song. It needs Timbaland’s help IMMEDIATELY. This is crap. PURE crap. She cannot sing and the lyrics are horrid. HORRID. How dare they assault my ears with this. I am offended! Someone call Timbaland and see if he can fix this.

    I think some people just need to keep their mouths shut. None of you know Lindsay. And as for the song, it is an actual FUN DANCE song…and I think she did a good job. Take it for what it is. She’s not out to win a freakin grammy. She just wants to make some dance music, and so far I think she’s on the right track. Don’t take it so seriously. She’s not Sarah McLachlan or Alanis Morissette. Geesh.

    Ne-Yo just put up a new video playlist for The Gentleman ( on his Myspace page (, You can embed his playlist into your profile or create your own. :mrgreen:

  16. I’ve been reading a few posts and really and enjoy your writing. I’m just starting up my own blog and only hope that I can write as well and give the reader so much insight.

    Jay you’re just pmsing because you don’t like Lindsay Lohan, but she is a damn good singer. [; She has a lot of good songs and Bossy is catchy, but not a smash hit. All in all, bias I say? ;d
