Ashlee Simpson: Remember her? (Failure upwards)
Her lip-syncing incident from her SNL appearance...
Why did she do that goofy jig before strolling off stage and leaving her band playing alone? It doesn’t make any sense. This video went viral before YouTube, so it that makes it interesting in my book. She then blamed her band at the end of the show, which makes her look even worst. And, she blamed it on acid reflux, yeah right.
Then, things got even better with her Orange Bowl appearance...
First thing, why did anyone think the Orange Bowl crowd would be interested in Ashlee Simpson? They're not the same demographics. I also like that the camera director quickly shifted from her reaction to a wider view just so we couldn't see her tears. Also, watch the dancers at the end of the video, priceless.
I'm sorry, but the song was terrible and her performance was just plain bad.
She tried to play the stiff upper lip mode with this statement. From MTV, (("There was some booing that went on after the halftime show was finished," she said. "If they didn't like the performance, and that's what it was about, then sorry to them." ))
Very passive-aggressive. And then she goes even “deeper”. From MTV
(("Maybe they were booing at me, maybe they were booing at the halftime show 'cause the whole thing sucked," she said. "I was facing [the Oklahoma Sooners], and I was rooting for USC, and they played a clip of it, so maybe it was that those people didn't like me. You never know. But I can't make everybody happy."))
Nope, they were booing you, Ashlee. Her public image was so bad that there was even a public petition to stop her from making music. And, it is still around today.
Oh, and remember that nose job issue? From Wiki, ((Simpson had a nose job in April 2006. In the May 2007 issue of Harper's Bazaar, she said that she was not insecure about her appearance and had not been beforehand. She said that plastic surgery was a "personal choice" that one should only decide to do for oneself and not for others. In a September 2007 interview, her father, Joe Simpson said of the surgery: "There was a real problem with her breathing and that was cured". In mid-2006, Simpson gave an interview to Marie Claire magazine, in which she was said to have "had it with Hollywood's twisted view of feminine beauty" and was photographed painting a pro-female mural with a group of underprivileged girls from Los Angeles' Green Dot Public School. By the time the magazine hit newsstands, Simpson had already had her nose job, and some Marie Claire readers complained that this was hypocritical. ))
People have moved away from hating her, and they have pretty much ignored her. Now, they have new people to hate. I just find it amazing that she has stayed around all these years, despite the fact she has no talent.
