Lindsay Lohan Suing Pitbull Over Song Lyrics
Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan is not a happy camper!
The “Mean Girls” actress and her lawyer Stephanie Ovadia are reportedly suing the creators of Pitbull’s #1 hit song “Give Me Everything” (f/ Ne-Yo) off of his latest album “Planet Pit.”
According to reports, Pitbull, along with co-writers Ne-Yo and Afrojack have also been named in the suit over the unfavorable set lyrics that say, “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoeing, to keep flowing/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”
Lohan claims that Ne-Yo and Pitbull mentioning her in an unfavorable way in their song is a breach of New York’s civil laws, which protects “people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.” The filed suit seeks to get an injunction and halt the broadcasting of the song.
Talk about bad timing for Pitbull though, as the song in question has sold 2.96 million copies since its release in June and scored him a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Neither Ne-Yo nor Pitbull’s camps have commented on the law suit thus far, and in our opinion they shouldn’t, because this is a pretty stupid lawsuit.
Our advice to Lindsay Lohan: Don’t get in trouble and get “locked up” and people won’t have that kind of juicy material to use in their music :)
