Lindsay Lohan got another job! She’s going to be hosting the Singapore Grand Prix. Apparently, Singapore loves their crack heads? Maybe not – she got the gig because Pussy Cat Doll Nicole Scherzinger had to drop out. That’s right, y’all. Lindsay’s now taking secondhand gigs from a Pussy Cat Doll. Lindsay’s all over it, too, telling the Associated Press that she’s a “big fan” of both the Grand Prix and of NASCAR. Oh, really? She also basically gives a “no comment” about the Nicolas Prugo-burglary situation:
Actress Lindsay Lohan will host three days of concerts featuring Beyonce Knowles and Black Eyed Peas to coincide with Sunday night’s Singapore Grand Prix.
Lohan, 23, was a last-minute replacement after Pussy Cat Doll Nicole Scherzinger dropped out earlier this month. The concerts, known as F1 Rocks, run Thursday to Saturday and include No Doubt, ZZ Top, Simple Minds and N.E.R.D.
“It’s a bunch of amazing performers whom I’m a really big fan of,” Lohan said in an interview.
Lohan said she’s also a Formula One fan.
“I like to drive. I like cars. I like fast cars,” she said. “I studied NASCAR for almost a year for Herbie. It was very hot inside those cars.”
Lohan starred in 2005 in “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” a comedy about a Volkswagen Beetle on the racing circuit.
Lohan’s Hollywood Hills home was broken into last month, and last week police arrested Nicholas Prugo, 18, on suspicion of felony burglary in connection with the case.
Lohan, who arrived in Singapore on Thursday, declined to say whether she knew Prugo.
“I don’t really want to get into the details of that,” Lohan said. “That’s for the detectives to do.”
Last year’s Singapore Grand Prix was F1’s first-ever night race.

Well, good for her I guess. It’s always nice to see someone will step up and help Lindsay support herself (and her habit?). Lindsay’s had a really busy week, you know. Lindsay spent the Emmys doing her patented cracked-out tweets to Samantha Ronson. Nothing as good as the ever-classic “For their not only COMPLETE, BUT SUBSTANISAN…for being a friend before a sell-out… the term “self out” was coined from ME and I gave them sooooooo much insight…you JUST told me that your friends are worth more than i am 2 your family & that i’m gross”. But some of these are pretty… awesome? Sad? Pathetic? Stuff like: “Nice to see @samantharonson has found a 90210 rather than being a loyal” and “Nice to see @samantharonson has found a party rather than being honest”. The best was “@samantharonson off to another country, send my love to your family lol J”. After her Twitter freakout, she threw beer cans at paparazzi, and was generally bratty. Good to see that kind of behavior gets rewarded with work.
