We’ve always known she was a little “Bossy,” and now, we can add another accomplishment to pop princess-actress-model-reality TV starlet Lindsay Lohan‘s impressive and steadily growing resume: Game developer.
Yesterday, the A Little More Personal (Raw) chanteuse announced the release of Lindsay Lohan’s The Price Of Fame, a game developed by Space Inch. The concept? You are a world famous celebrity on the hunt for fans and fame, buying outfits, accessories, toys and pets on your way to superstardom. And that’s not all! “Start a phony rap beef, buy a private peninsula, get butt implants, fight in an elevator and give your baby botox. It’s all a part of getting famous in Hollywood. And why not punch a paparazzi while you’re at it?” the game’s description reads.
The game is meant to be a tongue-in-cheek experience as a “parody on celebrity culture” — and who would know about that better than La Lohan? “I’m thrilled to have worked with Space Inch on this. Programmer Andy Ross, guitarist of OK Go, did a great job. He understood what I wanted and the game captures a great part of culture and our current media society. This app is humerous, smart, and engaging,” Lindsay says of her involvement.
Will Lilo take Kim Kardashian‘s crown and pave the way in celeb-obsessed gameplay? We’ll just have to wait and see. Let us know what you think in the comments below, especially if you’re tried out the game! More »
Bet you didn’t see this headline coming.
Lindsay Lohan was evidently in a musical state of mind over the weekend, celebrating the 10 year anniversary of her debut album Speak in an Instagram. The nostalgic post seemed par for the course, until she posted a follow-up this morning: #DuranDuran @alianalohan recording with some greats!!!” she excitedly wrote, accompanied by a photo of herself, her sister Ali (of “Lohan Holiday” legend) and, indeed, legendary troupe Duran Duran.
Could it be? Could new Lilo be coming…in the form of the New Romantic heroes? This wouldn’t be the first time the group paired with a pop darling: Kelis joined Simon Le Bon back in 2011 for a special live performance, and Simon showed up with Charli XCX on the Lorde-curated Hunger Games soundtrack last month.
Are things about to get a little more personal (raw) between Lilo and Simon, and are you excited about this potential musical pairing? Sound off in the comments below. More »
At some point or other, we, as pop fans, all fall hard for an album that completely tanks on the charts. Sure, the artist in question may eke out a hit single or two, but for whatever reason, the universe seems to reject the notion of the parent album finding any major success. Sorry, Carly Rae Jepsen
But that’s where we, your music-loving pals at Idolator, come in. Because in the few spare moments when we’re not cranking out the daily goings-on with your favorite artists currently tearing it up in the land of pop, we often pine away wistfully for the days of yore, when we’d champion our own personal fave flops in vain.

Say what you like about Lindsay Lohan
‘s personal battles, I maintain that she was actually a great pop star. Let’s be real, “Bossy”
still slays your fave’s entire discography. Long suffering fans were finally treated to a new musical performance (of sorts) when footage of the 27-year-old covering Stevie Nicks
‘ “Edge Of Seventeen” at a party in New York surfaced online this morning (February 12).
As all connoisseurs of ’00s pop know, Lindsay previously covered the classic on her seminal 2005 LP A Little More Personal (Raw) and even performed it live at the 2005 American Music Awards. Well, if the one-minute clip a partygoer sneakily took on their phone is any indication, the triple threat has still got it — looking and sounding fantastic. Time for a comeback, Lilo! Watch the video after the jump. More »

‘ “City Of Angels”. Kanye West
, Selena Gomez
, Lindsay Lohan
, Alan Cummings
and James Franco
all open up about about their relationship with the Californian metropolis — expressing their likes, dislikes and memorable experiences.
The documentary style commentaries are interspersed with footage of Jared belting out the rock ballad in the Hollywood Hills. It’s cheesy but the interesting interviews make up for the band’s corny histrionics. Highlights include Kanye saying that LA took his mother but gave him a daughter, Selena talking about the Disney stigma and Lindsay being, well, Lindsay. Watch up top. More »
After engaging in a mysterious sleepover at the Chateau Marmont
, could Lindsay Lohan
and Lady Gaga
be getting chummy in a professional manner? “It turns out that Lindsay will be starring in Gaga’s new video from her upcoming album,” a source tells The New York Post‘s Page Six gossip column
. Funny, we thought Lady Gaga is typically cast as the star of Lady Gaga videos.
An “observer” pretty much sums up our suspicions of the reality of this report: “Why this huge artist — who could literally have anyone she wants — chose someone currently at the bottom of the Hollywood food chain remains a mystery.” Meanwhile, a rep for Gaga says she’s not shooting a music video at this time.
If Lilo’s role in an upcoming ARTPOP video turns out to be true, it wouldn’t be the first time the actress starred in a music video. Remember when she was, like, an actual pop star, with albums and videos and everything? How times change.
Remember a few weeks ago when reports surfaced that Lady Gaga
and Lindsay Lohan
were having a sleepover at the Chateau Marmont
, and then before you could even process the thought of two pop-culture worlds colliding, Gaga up and deleted her Twitter exchange
with LiLo? Well, perhaps this might explain things: Mother Monster used her new social networking site LittleMonsters.com to share pics from her get-together with the actress on Friday (July 27). In the pics, the blondes take turns wearing a tiara, with Lindsay wearing a fur coat and Gaga commenting, “I love to stay up late and take pictures of beautiful celebrities.” We guess the two were bonding over Robert Rodriguez’s Machete
series; Gaga stars in the second installment while Lindsay appeared in the first. Or maybe they were just painting each others nails and talking about boys.
