The year was 2004. George W. Bush was president. Ashton Kutcher was still punking people. Nary was there an ass that wasn’t wrapped in the word JUICY. And Lindsay Lohan proved she’s a true triple threat (actress, singer, huge mess) by dropping her debut album, Speak. An album that broke the news to us that 18-year-old Lindsay was tired – just so tired – of the rumors starting, and was sick of being followed. A year later she got a little more personal and raw, by releasing her second album A Little More Personal (Raw).
Lindsay’s music career seemed to end there, and it came to be that if you wanted to hear one of Dina’s kids attempt to sing on key, you were left with just Ali Lohan. However, the heavens (or the door to a $19.99-an-hour Mykonos recording studio) have opened up, and it looks like Lindsay is making new music.
On Friday, Lindsay posted an Instagram picture of herself looking pensive in a recording studio. She captioned the post with the headphones emoji, which didn’t really tell us that much. Maybe she was continuing to live her Ariel fantasy by recording a self-published audiobook of The Little Mermaid, except in this version, Ursula refuses to take Ariel’s voice after realizing it sounds like an ocean’s worth of crabs have been crawling across it. The Blast seemed to think that this was Lindsay’s way of teasing new music. Lindsay cleared things up yesterday when she posted a follow-up picture of her studio session.

She might want to change that hashtag. She’s one piece of punctuation away from receiving a snake carrying a strongly-worded cease-and-desist from Taylor Swift.
For anyone wondering why Lindsay would try the whole music thing again, The Blast reminds us all that Speak reached the number 4 spot on the Billboard 200 chart back in 2004. So it’s not like her music career was unsuccessful. She even had a third album planned – Spirit in the Dark – but the album died in 2008 when Lindsay decided she couldn’t handle the stress of singing and acting at the same time. So it looks like we might finally see the release of that third album? Maybe she’ll even keep the original title. It would make sense; current-day Lindsay Lohan totally looks like the type of apparition that might appear behind you if you turn off the lights and say her name three times into a mirror.
