Pitbull is “very surprised” that Lindsay Lohan is suing him for mentioning her in his hit song, “Give Me Everything.” Lohan recently filed a lawsuit against him claiming that the line “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan” will to do “irreparable harm” to her career. Pitbull explained on his website, [“To me it was very ironic, to be honest with you. At first I read it and I was like, ‘Nah, this has got to be a joke.’ Come to find out it’s very realistic. Me being someone who supports Lindsay Lohan’s career, where I’ve seen her go through everything she’s gone through, and everything that has to do with this record is so positive — you see the way I start off the record, where I say, ‘I took my life from negative to positive/ I just want y’all to know that’ — when I mention Lindsay Lohan in the record, it was really a positive message.”] He added, “[The lyric] is ‘Hustlers move in silence, so I’m tip-toeing/ So keep blowing, got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.’ When I say I got it locked up, if you’re from the neighborhood, when they say, ‘You got it locked up’ that means you run that area.” The rapper also extended an olive branch to Lohan — inviting her to the MTV VMAs this coming Sunday. He said, “We’ll be performing [‘Give Me Everything] at the VMAs, and, as a matter of fact, I’d like to send out an invitation to Lindsay Lohan. Hopefully she can come with me to the VMAs, and we can figure this out.” Sources close to Lindsay tell us she has no interest in going to the VMAs — and Pitbull’s apology has no impact on the lawsuit … it’s moving forward.
