13 Great Pop Albums That Were Overlooked & Underrated In Their Time: From Gina G To Little Boots

Flopped But Not Forgotten!
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.

Did You Hear?

:: Adam Levine wants you to know that he did not sleep with a certain celebrity. “That’s not true,” he told Howard Stern. “I did not have sexual intercourse with Lindsay Lohan. I will swear on anything that you ask that I have never had sex with Lindsay Lohan!” Ok, ok. We believe you. [Just Jared]

:: The bad news never ends for Justin Bieber. According to news reports a car he was traveling (but not driving) had an accident in Beverly Hills, while trying to evade paparazzi. Thankfully, no one was injured. [MTV]

Lindsay Lohan Briefly Revives Music Career With Stellar Stevie Nicks Cover: Watch

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!

Lindsay Lohan To Star In Lady Gaga’s New Music Video?

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.

Lady Gaga & Lindsay Lohan Have A Sleepover!

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.

Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter Scores Lindsay Lohan Surf Movie

Lindsay Lohan: Surf's Up!
Daft Punk have lined up an impressive list of collaborators for their forthcoming album, but Lindsay Lohan is probably the most surprising name to get mixed up with the electronic act. Thomas Bangalter, one-half of the French duo, scored the music for a new short film starring Lohan, titled First Point, a creation between the actress, artist Richard Phillips and legendary surf filmmaker Taylor Steele.

According to a press release, the film “presents a postmodern take on the surf film genre through an abstract framework of imagery in which the actress engages in cinema performance tropes inspired by contemporary film noir.” Uh huh. That’s not actually Lohan surfing in the trailer above, as she used a stunt double. Perhaps her surfing skills are as questionable as her driving abilities.

First Point premieres this week at Art Basel in Switzerland. If you’ve already had your fill of Lohan-related antics this week, at least check out the trailer for Bangalter’s moody score.
