"Rumors" as written by Mark Rooney, Peter Jackson, Tito Jackson and Lindsay Lohan....
Saturday, steppin' into the club
Somebody wanna tell DJ to turn it up
I feel the energy all around
And my body can't stop moving to the sound

But I can tell that you're watching me
And you're probably gonna write what you didn't see
Well I just need a little space to breathe
Can you please respect my privacy

Why can't you just let me
Do the things I wanna do
I just wanna be me
I don't understand why
Would you wanna bring me down
If I'm only having fun
I'm going live my life
(not the way you want me to)

I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Sayin' what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

Here we are back up in the club
People taking pictures
Don't you think they get enough
I just wanna be all over the floor
And throw my hands up in the air to the beat like (What?)

I've gotta say respectfully
I would like it if you take the cameras off of me
Cause I just want a little room to breathe
Can you please respect my privacy

Why can't you just let me
Do the things I wanna do
I just wanna be me
I don't understand why
Would you wanna bring me down
If I'm only having fun
I wanna live my life
(not the way you want me to)

I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Sayin' what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

I just need to free my mind (my mind)
Just wanna dance and have a good time (good time)

I'm tired of rumors (rumors)
Followed (followed, followed, followed, followed, followed)

What they (follow) me
Why can't they (they they they-they-they) let me live

Take this for just what it is

I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Sayin' what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Sayin' what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

    General CommentIt is really awesome. Don't even need to get into this meaning. I'm glad someone is fighting back because the paparazzi and media have become (hate to quote a metallica song) some kind of monster.

    It used to be media was about the people. People want to be informed therefore they were out covering things. Special red carpet events, award shows, etc.

    Now the media has become so competitive with themselves all they care about is feeding on the glamour/popularity of other people. So now they say Lindsay is rude, mean, egotistical, etc. When of course all their going to see is her bad side!

    I hate to bring Avril Lavigne into this, but I so love her. She flips off the media, moons them, ridicules them. They act like animals, therefore that's how they should be treated.

    And call me wrong, but I think the whole feud between Lohan and Duff is totally fabricated and perpetuated by the media. Why not? Someone told me Hillary Duff wrote a song about Lindsay, and this is Lindsay's song back to her. Man, I really think she (Lindsay) is just doing her thing.

    Let her be.

    And OMG get off her boobs! Everyone is talking ... chit-chit-chit-chattering about her boobs! Leave her boobs alone!

    Sorry for venting. Back to the song, this song is something else. It starts out kind of as a pop song you'd hear from Britney Spears or somebody else, but the beats are just strong and they get harsher. Especially towards the end. I love it! Fantastic song!

    I'll be getting Lindsay Lohan's album when it comes out (someday LOL).

    General CommentFirst let me say I don't listen to pop that much. I saw Lindsay in MG and thought her little red head was hot. So I downloaded this song to see if she can sing.

    This song is about her wanting to live like other 18 year old girls, and not being able to go anywhere without someone snapping a picture of her boob falling out.

    It's nothing new...people always had a camera ready for the first boob slip of a famous teen/pop star.
