Los Angeles, CA, United States (Celebrity News Service) – Lindsay Lohan hit rapper Pitbull with a lawsuit over a line in his #1 single “Give Me Everything” with Ne-Yo. But he says he had no intentions of hurting her whatsoever and, in fact, was hoping to keep her relevant.
“I was very surprised when I found out about the lawsuit,” Pitbull said. “To me it was very ironic, to be honest with you. At first I read it and I thought, ‘It’s gotta be a joke.’ [But] come to find out that’s it’s very realistic.”
Pitbull sat down for an interview with his official website, PlanetPit.com, where he stressed that the line in question, where he raps “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan,” was misinterpreted.
“When I was mentioning Lindsay Lohan on the record, it was a positive message,” Pitbull says. “When I say got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan, it means you run that area.”
That might be a bit of a stretch but Pitbull says he’s all about the positivity on his work and he’s supported Lindsay throughout her career and even her hard times. He also thought mentioning her in a song, which shot all the way to the top of the charts and sold millions of singles, might even help. Instead, Lohan cited mental anguish and irreparable harm in the lawsuit.
“In no way shape or form would I want to bring that on anybody and I didn’t look to defamate, degrade, or hurt someone’s career,” Pitbull added. “For me mentioning it on a No. 1 record around the world, I thought it would be helping someone’s career and also keeping them relevant.”
Pitbull will perform the song live at this Sunday’s Video Music Awards on MTV and even extends an invitation for Lindsay to join him.
