Lindsay Lohan Inks Record Deal

Actress signs with Tommy Mottola's Casablanca Records.

Following in the footsteps of such young actors-turned-musicians as Hilary Duff and Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lindsay Lohan has signed a recording contract.

Lohan, who turned 18 on July 2, recently inked a deal with Tommy Mottola’s Casablanca Records, according to her spokesperson.

Though no details about the contract were released, Peter LoFrumento, a representative for Universal Music Group, Casablanca’s parent company, told The Associated Press on Monday that “it’s a long-term recording contract.”

“Right now she needs to get into the studio and get down to work,” he added (see “Lindsay Bizkit? Lohan Solo Album Combines ‘Hip-Hop And Rock’ “ ).

Lohan has already recorded tracks for the films “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” “Freaky Friday” and “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement” (see “Kelly Clarkson, Lindsay Lohan Provide Entries To Princess Diaries 2 LP” ).
