Pitbull countersues Lindsay Lohan for that 'Give Me Everything' lyric

Lindsay Lohan just can’t seem to get out of her own way. After doffing her clothes for a Playboy payout and spending a handful of hours in jail, she came out finding that she had been countersued by Pitbull in response to a defamation suit she filed against him.

Back in August, Lohan filed against Pitbull because of a lyric in his hit “Give Me Everything” that went “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” The beleaguered actress felt that it was an unjust knock against her character (even though she had already been in jail once already), saying “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.” The suit was filed in New York, which has a civil rights law protecting a person from having his or her name exploited for commercial gain.

Since the suit was filed just prior to the MTV Video Music Awards, Pitbull did the gentlemanly thing and invited Lohan to join him at the show, where he was performing the song in question. He even left her a ticket at will call.

Lohan didn’t show up, and apparently Pitbull is done playing games, as he has filed a suit of his own against Lohan. His claims that he did in fact have just cause to write that lyric (because, of course, she actually spent time in jail) and also noted that she was ineligible to file the suit in the state of New York, as she clearly lives in California (or at least does time there).

What do you think? Will everybody drop their suits and walk away friendly? And do you agree with Pitbull and believe the lyric is fair? Give us everything in the comments.

RCA Records retires Jive, J Records, and Arista

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that RCA Records has folded J Records, Arista Records, and Jive into parent label, RCA.

Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull's cameo-packed 'I Like How It Feels' video: Watch it here

Enrique Iglesias may be 36, but don’t tell him that — he’s still young, brash, and just a little bit reckless in the new video for his whistle-happy single “I Like How It Feels,” which debuted online today.

The clip, directed by Iglesias himself, plays a lot like the intro to an MTV travel series or a Kickstarter campaign clip. It kind of makes you want to windsurf on the Dominican coast while feeding orphans and drinking coconut water, you know?

Strewn throughout the tour footage are glimpses of stars like Serena Williams, Ken Jeong, and Eva Longoria; featured rapper Pitbull also stops by to lay down a verse — and hawk his own vodka brand, of course.

Timbaland, Pitbull, and David Guetta enjoy sun and exotic ladies in 'Pass at Me' video": Watch it here

Jack Frost is starting to blow his chill on most of us as we get deeper into fall. But in the video for his new single “Pass At Me,” Timbaland, along with Pitbull, jets to a place where the sun still beams, ladies dance in bikinis, and outdoor swimming is still an option.

The two live it up on boats and beaches before hitting up a David Guetta concert. (No coincidence, since he produced the cut).  Check out the video after the jump

MTV 2011 VMAs: What you didn't see on TV

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are in the books, and while the show as a whole felt a little scattered and unfocused, there were indeed some high points. Russell Brand, Tony Bennett, and Bruno Mars gave Amy Winehouse an excellent tribute, Beyoncé capped off a great performance with a nice little revelation about the future of her family, and Adele tore down the house with her stunning, jaw-dropping run through “Someone Like You.”

But there were a handful of amazing moments that happened between MTV’s rapid-fire camera cuts and commercial breaks. Luckily, I was inside the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live and can report the eight greatest things you probably missed during the show. READ FULL STORY

Pitbull invites litigious Lindsay Lohan to the VMAs, says lyric about her is positive: Watch the video statement here

In an exceptionally strange turn of events last week, Lindsay Lohan heard a lyric from Pitbull’s massive worldwide hit “Give Me Everything,” didn’t like that her name was referenced, and decided to sue the rapper for defamation.

Pitbull isn’t the sort to take this kind of thing lying down, which is why he crafted a video statement that explains his stance on the issue and how he hopes to resolve it.

In the video below, Pitbull notes that the offending lyric in question (“I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan”) is actually a compliment, as having something “locked up” means you are in charge.

He also apologized for any mental anguish he may have caused her and, in an interesting twist, invited Lohan to come with him to this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, where he will be performing live (and will likely be busting out “Give Me Everything”).

Rap beef! Lindsay Lohan sues Pitbull, Ne-Yo, and Afrojack for 'irreparable harm'

The lady just can’t stay out of court. According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan has sued the rapper Pitbull and his co-songwriters Ne-Yo and Afrojack over this line from his hit single “Give Me Everything”: “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’ / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”

The lawsuit, which was filed by Lohan’s lawyer Stephanie Ovadia, seeks an injunction to stop the broadcast of the song, along with unspecified damages.

Lohan claims 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.” She’s suing under New York’s civil rights laws, which protect people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.

Why stop there? Didn’t Hilary Duff also write a song about Lohan? And didn’t Tori Amos also do that? And that British pop band McFly, too? At this rate, she’ll spend the rest of the aughties in judges’ chambers–but at least she’ll have a pretty hot mixtape.

Pitbull: A Music Mix Q&A on his new Planet Pit album, women, and his Cuban energy

There’s something to be said of a respected, street-certified rapper who can drop Ryan Seacrest’s name in his rhymes and still receive love from his peers and mainstream audiences alike. That’s Pitbull.

The Miami spitter is warming up the Billboard hot 100 chart with his latest single, the Ne-Yo-assisted “Give Me Everything.” That sits at No. 4. While his collab with Jennifer Lopez on her “On the Floor” rest two places behind it. And with his new club-driven album, Planet Pit dropping June 21, it’s safe to say that we’ll be hearing plenty more of him this summer.

For Entertainment Weekly‘s Best of Summer double issue (which hits newsstands this Friday, May 27), we caught up with Pit to talk about why his sixth effort will be the perfect for the season.

But here, find out if his studio sessions are filled with gorgeous women, why he doesn’t need coffee to get jacked up, and what excites him about Planet Pit.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What’s the atmosphere like in the studio when you’re creating?
PITBULL:
I don’t really look for an atmosphere or anything like that. When I get in the studio the idea is just to work and bang out as many as I can. I always have fun making the music. My goal was to create a whole planet of music. So the goal was to create a Now [That's What I Call Music] album, which is when people hear it they’re like, “Oh, this is a single! That’s a single! Oh boy, this is a single.”

So were there beautiful women all over the studio? READ FULL STORY

Perez Hilton hosts N.E.R.D., Pitbull, Taio Cruz at pre-VMA party: on the scene

NERD-PEREZ-HILTONImage Credit: Christopher Polk/Getty Images; Johnny Nunez/WireImage.com “I love music!” Perez Hilton seemed to shout those three words at least once every time he took the stage at L.A.’s Wiltern Theatre last night. While he’s still best known as a cantankerous gossip blogger, Hilton clearly does spend a lot of time thinking about tunes, between his Perezcious Music label and his ongoing “One Night in…” concert series. Promotional materials for “One Night in Los Angeles” promised A-list celebs like Katy Perry and Kanye West would be in the audience; they never showed, as far as I could tell. In a way it was fitting. This event ended up being more about music than about stars, after all. READ FULL STORY
