Lindsay Lohan is desperate to resurrect her pop career.The 'Mean Girls' star has reportedly told executives at Universal Music she is ready to start work on a third studio album after her recent troubles left her short of film offers. A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "It would be easy for her to release another album. A record by Lindsay Lohan costs almost nothing to make. She doesn't need a big band. You just give her some songs and session musicians. And, God knows, she already has name recognition. "Lindsay's first two albums 'Speak' and 'A Little More Personal' were guided by Casablanca label head Tommy Mottola, and it is thought he has been trying to persuade Lindsay to get back into the recording studio.The source said: "Tommy Mottola knows how to handle divas, after all he was once married to Mariah Carey."Lindsay was arrested last month for driving under the influence, possession of cocaine, transporting a narcotic into a custody facility and driving on a suspended licence.She has since reportedly struggled to find anyone who will insure her for a Hollywood movie.But the music industry may not be set to welcome the 21-year-old with open arms either.A source said: "As much as she wants to make another album the feeling is she needs to get herself cleaned up. Then we can talk about it."
