Lindsay Lohan has tried her hand at acting, singing and modeling – and now, the Hollywood starlet is considering a new career path: DJ’ing!

The 23-year-old actress was in London to DJ the Nokia X6 launch party on March 3, but ceded her turn tables to a professional DJ she’s rumored to have romanced mid-evening. And no, if you’re wondering, it wasn’t Samantha Ronson!

“Lindsay was supposed to be spinning, but she doesn’t really know her way around the equipment yet. You have to be focused to deejay – which she isn’t,” an insider tells exclusively, adding that her reported ex, popular British DJ Gareth Morgan, had to take over.
