Sometimes the best tactic it to fight fire with fire and that’s exactly what [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pitbull[/lastfm] has done by filing a countersuit against Lindsay Lohan under the pretense that he isn’t unreasonable or out of line for using the line “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan” in light of all of her legal issues.
*Ahem* But he does have a really good point. It’s not like he made up a story and then tagged her name at the end. She really did get locked up, what could she argue?
This all started when Lindsay Lohan decided to file suit against Pitbull for slander because of his “harsh” song lyric using her name. In response, the Miami rapper extended the proverbial olive branch to the former Disney actress by inviting her to the MTV Video Music Awards where he was slated to perform the incriminating song.
Her response, you ask? It doesn’t exactly exist, but she is still suing the “Hey Baby” rapper. This time, however, he took off the kid gloves and filed his own lawsuit. In his legal statements to Ms. Lohan, he urges, as stated, that his use of the lyrics was justified because of Lindsay’s real life jail time and even goes as far as challenging the location of the claim, “In light of Ms. Lohan’s continuing obligations to the State of California, as well as the foregoing facts, Ms. Lohan is a citizen of California, not New York,” Pitbull’s countersuit states.
It’s getting really petty now, I can only imagine how this will turn out. I will say that we at AMP radio hope they both come to their senses, stop wasting tax money, and drop their lawsuits. Hash it out over coffee.
Pitbull has already stated that he never meant any ill will towards Lindsay, “I didn’t look to defame, degrade or hurt someone’s career. For me, mentioning it on a #1 record around the world, I thought it would be helping someone’s career, and keeping them relevant. We mention people’s names all the time; when it comes to rapping, it’s always about double meanings and metaphors and how you flip certain things.”
Another good point from Pitbull. Thus far, his sentiments have fallen on deaf ears. Lets be grown ups about this, Lindsay. C’mon!
