Pitbull Talks Lohan Lawsuit, Says He Makes Her ‘Relevant’
Pitbull has responded to Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit, which details her anger over the rapper’s chart-topping mega-hit ‘Give Me Everything’ — she feels the single includes “disparaging” and “defamatory” lines about her. On his official website, Pitbull responds that Lohan had read the lyrics wrong, in fact. “At first I read it and I thought, ‘It’s gotta be a joke,'” he writes.
Pitbull says that his mention of “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’/ I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan” is really “a positive message.” He goes on to explains that LiLo may not be familiar with the lingo he used in his raps. “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,” he revealed.
“To me it was very ironic, to be honest with you,” he continues. “In no way shape or form would I wanna bring that on anyone … I didn’t look to defamate [sic], degrade or hurt someone’s career … “
Instead, perhaps Lohan should thank and not sue. “For me mentioning it … on the number one record in the world … I thought it would be helping someone’s career and keeping them relevant.”
Pitbull concluded that Lindsay Lohan can join him on stage for his MTV VMA performance.
