Lindsay Lohan continues to play the part of wronged, upstanding citizen and hopes that a court of law will believe the same thing too. With the way the justice system has treated her already, she’s got a good shot at it. She currently has her panties in a knot over a lyric by rapper Pitbull. TMZ tells the sad story:
Lindsay Lohan has just sued the rapper Pitbull for a line in his mega-hit, “Give Me Everything,” for a disparaging lyric about her.
The song — written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, also defendants — has a line:
Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.
Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit … “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.”
Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.
Lindsay alleges the appearance of her name in the song “causes [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants.”
The suit — filed by Stephanie Ovadia — seeks an injunction to stop all of the defendants from broadcasting the song. It also seeks unspecified damages. Ovadia is the same lawyer who filed the E*TRADE lawsuit on Lindsay’s behalf, which settled for a confidential sum.
I can only hope her day in court is like one of those dream sequences, where the plaintiff starts reading the charge and starts cracking up when he gets to the part “…a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild…” and then the whole courtroom busts up laughing, and the judge is cracking up and pointing his finger at her, and she breaks into a cold sweat, but instead of waking up, it’s all true and she gets her ass laughed all the way out the door. What? I can dream, can’t I?
Take a gander at that beautiful head of hair:
