Its Pitbull's way of handling a heated situation. After actress Lindsay Lohan recently sued him over his song Give me everything, Pitbull seems pretty cool about the matter and has invited her over to Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, where he will be performing the song. Now that is Some Big expectation that the rapper is holding on to.
We'll be performing 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, Pitbull wrote on his Planet Web site.
With the Music Awards being just a day away, and no response received from Lindsay Lohan yet, one would wonder how the matter is going to be sorted out finally. Lohan's lawsuit seeks for a compensation for the harm done by the song lyrics.
As far as the whole Lindsay Lohan situation, it's real simple: I'm actually surprised and, in an ironic way, kind of honored. The record, if you listen to it from beginning to end, [is a] very positive record. I start off even talking about my own life. So in no way, shape or form am I here to defame, degrade or hurt anybody. It was my way of showing love or helping out, I would think, MTV News quoted Pitbull as saying.
A furious Lindsay Lohan sued Pitbull for specifically a line in the song that reads I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.
According to the court documents, in her law suit, Lohan asserts that 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.
Also, Lohan claims that as a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, [she] is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes, an MSNBC report had said earlier.
The song was released on March 18 this year and is a major club hit. Lohan filed the case five months after the song was released.
About the settlement of the matter with Lohan, Pitbull further added, But either [way], I said, 'You know what? Performing it at the VMAs, [I] would like to invite her out', he continued. And anybody who knows my reputation [knows I] don't do no publicity stunts. I'm not really about none of that. ... So I said it, I meant it, and if she takes it, great. If she doesn't, cool. But she will have her tickets at will call.
Well that's not it. Pitbull also hopes that Lohan would join his performance and may be even rap the line for which she sued him. He says that doing that will actually get her more love and respect from the audience. So basically he is hoping for a settlement outside the court. But what the Mean Girls star is up to is something we need to wait and watch.
