Will Lady Gaga Put Lindsay Lohan in an ‘ARTPOP’ Video?
Lady Gaga has been paling around with disgraced actress Lindsay Lohan, who has been reduced to appearing in Lifetime TV movies after her career plummeted. Gaga and La Lohan even had a sleepover at a Hollywood hangout last month. Now, rumors abound that the ladies' personal friendship will escalate into a professional one. Word is the Mother Monster would like LiLo to appear in one of her upcoming videos from her forthcoming 'ARTPOP' album.
"Lady Gaga and Lindsay caused a stir last month when they had their 'sleepover' at the Chateau [Marmont]," a source told The New York Post's Page Six. "And now it turns out that Lindsay will be starring in Gaga's new video from her upcoming album."
A gig in a Gaga vid would certainly be more high-profile for LiLo than a Lifetime movie, since Gaga is the biggest pop diva on the planet and all media attention is turned on her. "Due to Gaga's superstar status, this would be Lindsay’s biggest [role] by far in many, many years," a source said.
Linds is effectively a little monster!
Sure, starring in a Lady Gaga vid is cool. Look what it did for Taylor Kinney, who was Gaga's co-star in
'You & I.' He went on to be her boyfriend, so perhaps LiLo will become Ma Monster's BFF. But at the end of the day, Lohan was once a major A-list star who was on the rise and she's pretty much C-list and on the downtrend, so this feels like a bit of a desperate attempt for relevancy.
Another source finds Gaga's choice unsettling, pointing out that there is less of a benefit for her, especially since Gaga is a focused, determined and ambitious while Lohan let her career falter in favor of celebrity, which is a notion Gaga addresses in her lyrics. The source said, "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."
Well, Gaga is a warm-hearted person and likes to hook people up, so maybe that's why.
Still, a Gaga source has denied the rumors, saying she is not shooting a music video "at this time." Right, no kidding. It's too early. But that doesn't mean she's not considering treatments and co-stars in advance. Gaga leaves no detail to chance.
Reps for both Gaga and Lohan nixed comment
So we've established that Lohan appearing in a Gaga video would be good for Linds. But what about Gaga? Is it good for her? What do you guys think?
