The saying goes "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" and Pitbull is taking that advice to heart.
As was reported last week, Lindsay Lohan filed a bizarre lawsuit against the artist for mentioning her name in the lyrics of his hit song Give Me Everything in a less than flattering manner (some people just can't take a joke). In response to the lawsuit, Pitbull has decided to take a unique approach and actually invite Lohan to accompany him to the VMAs this weekend, where incidentally enough, he will be performing said song. Maybe he's thinking the best defense is a good offense? Either that or he's been watching too many of the Marine Corps Ball YouTube videos.
The rapper said in a statement with Univision, "I will be performing this 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 maybe we can figure this out." I'm not sure whether she thinks hearing it live will make it sound better to her or what, but you can't accuse him of not being a gentleman about the whole ordeal.
He, himself, admits that he thought the whole thing was a joke at first, but then came to find out that it was very real. He goes on to say that he was mentioning Lindsay's name in a positive way explaining "When I say 'I got it locked up'…that means you run that neighborhood. When I say 'I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan,' I say she runs her world, I'm trying to run mine." You gotta love the English language with its double meanings—it really helps in situations like these.
The actress has yet to respond to Pitbull's invitation, but I'm thinking he may want to have a back-up plus one just in case. Check out the rapper's invitation below and see if you think he did the right thing:
