IT’S confirmed, folks. Hollywood starlet and all-round paparazzi favourite-cum-wild child Lindsay Lohan will be gracing our shores as the host of F1 Rocks Singapore With LG, organisers said yesterday.
“We got a call… saying Lindsay Lohan was really keen to come to Singapore,” said Paul Morrison, CEO of All The Worlds, which is putting the event together. “She’s on the plane even as we speak. And she’s dead up for it! She can’t wait!”
Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger was originally set to host the show, but pulled out last week. According to Paul, other considerations for the position included Katy Perry, Victoria Beckham and “a number of the Spices”, before they finally landed Lindsay.
“We don’t know why she wants to come, we can’t really see the attraction – she must be a real F1 fan,” he joked.
Ooh, I have a reason: Interestingly, Lindsay’s gal pal Samantha Ronson will also be in town to spin at the Fuel Festival at Novus. What do you think? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more!
On a slightly more serious note, Paul said: “But we’re pretty excited because we’ve got a whole new dimension to the how. We’ve got a pretty famous movie star, who’s going to be coming in with a global reach, because that girl doesn’t do anything without the paparazzi knowing.
“I don’t know why that is either,” he deadpanned.
(Okay, maybe not so serious, then…)
Well, whatever it is, we say she’ll probably do a fine job of hosting the show, although it might not be such a good idea to let her get behind the wheel of the racecars, if you know what I mean! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more!
F1 Rocks Singapore With LG happens Sep 24 to 26. Tickets still available from Sistic.
