Never thought I’d say this, but here it goes: Lindsay Lohan’s musical comeback is imminent.
During a Mean Girls–themed live chat on Wednesday with Rajiv Surendra (a.k.a. Kevin “Kevin G” Gnapoor!), LiLo revealed, “I have to record another album for Universal and Motown. And I will.”
Unfortunately, there’s a catch. Before blessing us with album number three, the 29-year-old plans to give her little sister/fellow wannabe singer, Ali Lohan, a chance to shine.
“She’s recording a record, and out of respect for her and her true career choice — which is all she wants to do is make music, and her voice is like Etta James meets Adele — I want to respect her in that lane and stay in my lane working with children and creating films and writing and directing,” she said. “I will sing in my films, but I want her to sing in them as well.”
Damn. Looks like we’ll have to keep holding out for “Rumors 2.0.” Judging by her comments, though, it’s only a matter of time before LiLo makes her grand return to the pop sphere — which is great news for all of us who remember her glory days.
Let’s take a little trip back in time ...
The year was 2004, and Lindsay Lohan was the “It” girl of the moment. She had a solid collection of comedy blockbusters under her belt (Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, just to name a few), so she decided to turn her attention to music, because that’s what you do when you’re a Disney darling with a passable pop voice.
The first taste of LiLo’s solo music career was “Rumors,” a kiss-off to pesky media gossip. In the video, she busted out some half-assed choreography on a rooftop, wearing a then-trendy miniskirt and waxy lip gloss. Alas, a pop star was born. Her debut album, Speak, also spawned the singles “Over” and “First,” and she followed up a year later with her second LP, A Little More Personal (Raw).
And then ... radio silence, at least on the music front. She continued making headlines with various arrests, scandals, and rehab stints, but nowadays, all signs point to a healthier and happier LiLo. If ever there was a time for her to rejoin the pop world, it’s now. Honestly, Lindsay, don’t tell us that it’s over.
