Pitbull has filed a countersuit against Lindsay Lohan over a defamation lawsuit she filed against him. The actress has accused the rapper of exploiting her name in his hit "Give Me Everything," in which he says "I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan." Pitbull, who has already publicly apologized to Lohan for the rhyme and insisted that he meant no harm to her or her reputation, is now insisting that his lyric is justified by her multiple jail stints.

The rapper is also questioning whether Lohan is eligible to file a lawsuit in New York. Lohan, who claims to be a resident of Nassau County, New York, has been spending the majority of her time in California, where she is serving probation for her latest round of legal troubles. "In light of Ms. Lohan's continuing obligations to the State of California, as well as the foregoing facts, Ms. Lohan is a citizen of California, not New York," says Pitbull's countersuit.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
