Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to singing but it just doesn’t happen very often - her debut album Speak was released in 2004 and last year she sang at a birthday bash in NYC.

So when 80s band Duran Duran wanted Lindsay’s vocals on their new album Paper Gods it was hard work to say the least.

Speaking on the red carpet at The Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Simon Le Bon tells us: “Getting Lindsay in the studio is not easy. It took a whole month to get her into the studio. In the end Ben and I actually had to drive up to her flat in Mayfair and get her and her sister in the car and bring them into the studio. But we got her in there and as soon as she opened her mouth on this part it was fantastic.”

More news!

Lindsay plays the part of a doctor ‘talking somebody down in a slightly naughty way’, (ooh, er), on a song called Danceaphobia and recorded it after she finished on David Mamets' West End play, Speed The Plow.

Simon adds: “Music is something she wants to break into now she has really great charisma – we were hot and bothered for about three weeks after she left the studios. We’d absolutely like to work with Lindsay again.”

Bet you didn’t know that Simon and Lindsay go way back – not in that kinda way – they actually met 12 years ago in a dressing room when Lindsay revealed she went to a fancy dress party dressed as Simon. You couldn’t make it up…
