Ashlee Simpson Megathread

From wikipedia:
Simpson was born in Waco, Texas, and raised in Dallas. She is the daughter of Joe Truett Simpson (a former Baptist youth minister who is now her manager) and Tina Ann Drew (a former Sunday School teacher who homeschooled Ashlee).[citation needed] An accomplished dancer, Simpson began studying classical ballet at the age of three, and was admitted to the School of American Ballet in New York City at the age of eleven. Around that time, she suffered from an eating disorder; the condition lasted about six months, and she dropped to about 31 kg (70 pounds) at 159 cm (5ft 2in), but her parents then stepped in and got her to eat more. After her sister Jessica Simpson landed a record deal, the Simpson family decided to move to Los Angeles, California, where Ashlee began appearing in television commercials. When Jessica became a star after releasing her first album, Ashlee became one of her backup dancers. Later, she began appearing in films and television series, including an episode of the sitcom Malcolm in the Middle in 2001, a minor role in the 2002 film The Hot Chick and a recurring role on the family drama series 7th Heaven. In the summer of 2003, recorded a song titled "Just Let Me Cry" for the soundtrack of the film Freaky Friday. Eventually, Simpson signed a record deal with Geffen Records.

Ashlee's first album, Autobiography, suffered from lukewarm critical reception, but nevertheless debuted at #1 on the US charts. The first single, Pieces of Me, is a feel good song about finding happiness in a new relation, and has been described as "the perfect single". It was hands down one of the biggest summer hits in '04.

Her second single, Shadow, describes the frustration of living in her older sister, Jessica Simpson's shadow.
While sales of the single were not as strong as Pieces of Me, Shadow can still be considered a success.

To help promote both her album and her sister's reality show The Newlyweds, Ashlee was given her own show on MTV, entitled The Ashlee Simpson show. It ran for two seasons, and dealt with the process of writing, recording, and performing Simpson's music as well as aspects of her personal life.

Simpson's second album, I Am Me, was released in the U.S. on October 18, 2005. Simpson said that she had wanted to incorporate the feel of music from the 1980s on the album, and that unlike her debut it would focus less on relationships and more on herself. I Am Me debuted at number one with roughly 220,000 copies sold, but sales quickly deteriorated; by April 2006, it had sold a little less than 900,000 copies. Its first single, "Boyfriend", became a top twenty hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and performed similarly elsewhere. The second single, "L.O.V.E.", reached the U.S. top twenty-five, its success aided by a remix by R&B/hip-hop producer Missy Elliott and MTV's heavy rotation of the single's music video (it has been her most successful video to date on Total Request Live).

In November 2006, Simpson said that she was going to meet with record executives soon and begin working on her third album. Simpson also stated that she would like to work with Robert Smith from The Cure, who attended her last performance as Roxie Hart in the musical "Chicago".

Producer Ron Fair said in December 2006 that working on Simpson's next album would be "very tricky" because of press scrutiny and "prejudices", but that Geffen would work with her to overcome that, "because she deserves to be heard and she deserves a shot."

    didn't she say "Oh man, I totally hate lip syncing", then a week later got caught?

    Her getting booed at the Rose Bowl was just fucking awesome.

    Her dad must have some crazy complex going on. He has to know millions of men around the world, jack off to pictures of his two daughters.
    And yeah, he probably has a go every now and then.
