Ke$ha and Pitbull: a rather unlikely combination for a duet, I think, and the result – their new single ‘Timber – sorta proves my point. It’s awful and I seriously have no idea who came up with this song. There’s so much going on in it, the cowboy/lonesome prairie vibe is not working and now that the video is here, the whole menagerie of messiness comes together in one place.
If you want to see a bunch of weird line dancers, Pitbull in a suit and Ke$ha riding a mechanical bull, you’re in luck because this video has it all. Honestly, as much as I hate Pitbull, he makes some really good radio-friendly tracks, and this is the first one I’ve really, really disliked. I mean, it’s awful. Also, poor Ke$ha for being involved with this fuckery. Was this Dr. Luke’s idea?

I hope Lindsay Lohan hasn’t thrown the rolled up dollar bill with Charlie Sheen‘s phone number on it away, because she’s going to need another way to pay for that dress she cut up since her lawsuit against Pitbull for using her name was dismissed. If you remember, Lindsay wasn’t too keen on a certain set of lyrics in “Give Me Everything” which said “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’/ I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” Is that verse any good? Well, no. Is it worth getting sued over? A New York judge says definitely not – despite the fact that it’s inaccurate since Lindsay is above the law and has never been “locked up” for more than a couple of weeks.
Pitbull didn’t just win his legal war with Lindsay Lohan … he ANNIHILATED HER … TMZ has learned.
We broke the story … Lohan sued the rapper in 2011 for using her name in his hit song “Give Me Everything” … when he dropped the line, “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”
Lohan claimed Pitbull never got permission to use her name … and therefore he had no right to profit off of it.
But today a New York federal judge sided with Pitbull … ruling that Lindsay is dead wrong on the law — because the song is a work of art protected by the 1st amendment PLUS Lindsay’s barely even mentioned in it.
The judge also ruled … Lindsay’s allegations that she suffered emotional distress are also BS.
The case has been dismissed.
I’m sure Lindsay has suffered emotional distress from many things – being raised by abusive, manipulative, cash cow parents, doing enough drugs to run Colombia for a decade, whatever she got implanted in her lips… you get the point. In any case, I’m glad that she couldn’t stop the party for Pitbull. Get it? (I’ll show myself out.)
