Actress wants upcoming album to get people dancing

Lindsay Lohan hopes her new album will be a real party classic.

‘I want it to be dance,’ she explains. ‘I want it to be kind of Kylie Minogue meets Rihanna. I hope to tour with it and I hope to really promote it.’

After a difficult year, with several stints in rehab and family upsets, Lindsay, 21, is ready to ditch her bad girl image.

She is currently recording tracks in New York and LA, but none of the songs will have lyrics about her troubles.

‘I think the past is the past and it should be kept there,’ she tells People.

‘It’s a new slate for me, and I want to show that in my new record.’
