It looks like Lindsay Lohan's time in the Arab world is almost over as she preps to move back to the U.S. in a bid to relaunch her career in Hollywood.
The 33-year-old celebrity announced her plans to move back home during an interview with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen on New Year's Eve. Speaking via satellite from Muscat, Oman the star revealed her resolutions for 2020, saying:
"I'm managing my sister, so I want to really focus on me and everything that I can do in my life and come back to America and start filming again, which I'm doing something soon in this new year."
"And, you know, just taking back the life I've worked so hard for and sharing it with my family and you guys," she added.
The American actress is fascinated with the region and has been based between London and Dubai for the past four years. She even sort of developed an Arabic accent, expressed her interest in Islam and reportedly made quite the unique friendships. People thought she's serious about staying in the UAE for the longer term and who could blame them? After all, Lohan once teased that she was designing an island in the country.
Lohan is working on launching her sister Ali into acting and will dedicate time to that while in the U.S. The 26-year-old aspiring actress most recently appeared on Lindsay's reality series Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.
Cooper and Cohen made sure to ask the star about her return to music given that she teased a comeback in August by advertising a single titled Xanax.
The track was supposed to drop in the fall and was previewed in Dubai and on Instagram but was never released. Lohan said the single is set for release after the New Year ... so her fans can get excited again.
Lohan seemed to be having a blast in the region
Lohan previously spoke of her life in Dubai in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying:
"I love living in New York, but I do love the serenity and peace that I find living in the Middle East because there are no cameras in Dubai and I can actually focus on what I want to do in life. I don't always have to be scrutinized every second. I can have a private life and have a public life, but when I choose to. And I think that's really important."
The star became quite the celeb in the city as per one of her friends who said she had become super popular among locals. Lohan wasn't only invested in the UAE, though, she also had her eyes set on Saudi Arabia, hailing the kingdom's reforms after the country lifted a long-standing ban on cinemas. And it also seems like she's friends with the country's crown prince.
In 2018, the star appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and revealed she was working on a film set to be shot in the kingdom. While she didn't go into details of its release, the actress said the film is titled Frame and tells the story of an American photographer who leaves her husband in the U.S. to move to Riyadh. It remains unclear whether the film went into production or not.
