Ashlee Simpson Takes ‘SNL’ Lip Sync Blame

If you missed SNL on Saturday or have been living under a rock since then, Ashlee Simpson got caught lip syncing. I got the video from Dickson, and it really is quite funny, but I refrained from posting until I read this:

At the close of the show, Simpson deflected the blame, telling the viewing audience “I feel so bad. My band started playing the wrong song.” Geffen issued a statement blaming a computer glitch that should have played pre-recorded percussion rather than the “Pieces of You” vocals.



Simpson was reportedly singing a different tune Monday. MTV, home to her reality series “The Ashlee Simpson Show,” reported on its Web site that Simpson admitted to lip syncing on the show because her voice has suffering from the stresses of a heavy promotional schedule.

Take the blame when you need to, and people will respect you for that. Glad to see Ashlee is beginning to realize that (hopefully).

    wow. first of all….IT’S "Lip-SYNCING", not "lip singing." ok, now…I think Ashlee Simpson is a neat girl, I like what I have seen of her personality on her show…she is definitely spoiled (and just to pre-empt any attacks, you don’t have to be girly or bitchy or snobby to be spoiled. What I mean is, she has led a priviledged life, as has Jessica, and she was lucky that her sister was signed on her own merits and that she got an acting job on a popular television show, because it helped her launch a singing career) I really wonder if she cares who likes her, she seems to have a close family and a tight-knit group of friends, not to mention loads of cash, so even if she never makes another cent off of her music because people finally realize it isn’t very good, and she manages and invests her money, she’ll be set for life, and then some. Also, as far as the spoiled comment…did anyone notice that she had her own apartment in L.A. at age 19 and also just bought her own house? That’s what I’m saying….it was either her family’s money or her 7th heaven money, but i wonder how much she actually made from that show. Minor characters on semi-hit TV shows don’t really make very much money. I have a question….has anyone else heard that Ashlee claims to have been the youngest person to ever be admitted to the School of American Ballet? I cannot swallow that. I saw the episode where she took a ballet class and while she was better than her friends, she stilled seemed confused and had no respect for a beautiful and classic art form. Plus, why would she do the least graceful dance known to man (a hoedown) when she f**ked up on SNL? If she was a dancer, she couls have made a nice segment out of that. I cannot believe I am rambling about Ashlee Simpson on a blog. Just remember everyone…Tsunami–South Asia….War–Iraq/Afganistan…Genocide—Sudan…AIDS—Africa/the world/your town…how about donating a few bucks to the red cross for the tsunami? maybe instead of buying that next Ashlee Simpson album. Or an old Smaching Pumpkins album. I won’t even start with how annoying it is when pseudo-intellectual music "afficionados" act superior. Mozart was a musical genius. Ray Charles was an innovator. Kurt Cobain was talented. Ashlee Simpson can breathe. Music has been on a steady decline for about 300 years. Modern music peaked about 1967. The rest is relative crap. BTW…keep our troops in your thoughts. Appreciate them. Resist our government. Let bush and friends know how you feel. My boyfriend is going back soon. Pray for him and everyone else. Thank you.

    Do any of these kids even realize this isn’t Ashlee’s official site, but rather some Canadian guy’s blog? Guess that speaks volumes about the whole AS fan mentality…
