Since no studio in Hollywood will touch her, Lindsay Lohan has turned her attention to reviving her music career. Lohan has reportedly contacted Universal Music executives from rehab and has informed them that she is ready to start work on her third album.
Lindsay loves music,” a friend tells us. “She loves writing songs.” Her track “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)” grew out of her tormented relationship with dad Michael Lohan. Lindsay is certainly less of a gamble as a singer. “A record by Lindsay Lohan costs almost nothing to make,” says one exec. “She doesn’t need a big band. You just give her some songs and session musicians. And, God knows, she already has name recognition.” The music business traditionally tolerates – make that glorifies – its addled artists. Look at the late, great Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Sid Vicious and Kurt Cobain. (Not to draw any grim comparisons, Lindsay.) “Tommy Mottola knows how to handle divas,” says a source, noting that the former Sony Music chairman’s wives have included Mariah Carey and Thalia. But lately, relations between Mottola and Lohan are said to have cooled. (He didn’t return our calls.) And others at Universal Music are approaching her cautiously. “As much as she wants to make another album,” says one insider, “the feeling is she needs to get herself cleaned up. Then we can talk about it.”
As much as I hate to say it, she probably won’t sound any worse than any of the other over processed crap you hear on the radio. If people can make hits singing about lip gloss and umbah-rellas, I don’t see why Lindsay can’t do the same singing about cocaine and semen.
