Lindsay Lohan has announced she is pregnant with her first child and… we love that. The actress/sometimes-singer shared the news via Social Media with a onesie with “Coming Soon…” across the front.
It’s really quite lovely to see the three girls who changed history with that one photo, you know the one, settle down and find success in their careers and personal lives. They spent their adolescence providing entertainment, in the form of film and paparazzi photos, to the youth. It’s time they reclaim their time and lives.
Lindsay has released 2 full length LPs and a handful of singles since starting her music career in 2004 with the cult classic “Rumors.” In 2020, she signed a recording contract with her original label, Casablanca Records. Fans were ecstatic at the prospect of her self-leaked track, Xanax, getting an official release.
Unfortunately, that was not the case. After leaking essentially the full track on her Instagram with a very strange video of her brother at a skate park(?) the label clearly wanted to release something no one had heard and something that made a statement; “I’m Coming Back To Me.” The track was supposed to essentially re-introduce Lohan as a musician and also have that powerful message of “I’m me again!” — But what doesn’t and didn’t work here was two things…
- She is an actress first; so if she’s coming back to anything it better be the GD screen.
- The song was 95% chorus and … not even that great of one.
I know most people don’t expect Lindsay to release great music, the same way they didn’t expect her to take the world by storm in the early 2000s… But she does and did. If you actually ignore the noise and enjoy that early 2000s pop/rock vibe created by John Shanks and Kara DioGuardi and coined by Ashlee Simpson; then you will 100% enjoy SPEAK.
A Little More Personal (RAW) was a bit darker and released at a tumultuous time. She had ditched the red hair for bleach blonde and lost a noticeable amount of weight. Fans were not okay. But, the record has some of her best work to date. The first 3 tracks are beyond incredible, they are actually more rock than pop — and would be classified as such if a man was the vocalist — but… I Live For The Day is probably one of my favorite tracks of all time.
With all that said — we are very excited for Lindsay and her husband and while we will always want new music; we want her to be able to enjoy her life and doing the things she wants to do.
