The more interesting and less talented Simpson has surprised many of us by not sinking into mushy nothingness. In fact, she’s equipped with a Gucci-like straitjacket in her new video for “Outta My Head”. Perhaps she has gone crazy and is now promoting it, or it is another attempt to plug Ash into a niche that fits. “Outta My Head” is clearly a byproduct of the terrible lashings she has endured by journalists seeking talented performers or those disappointed in her hoedown on a “live” appearance on SNL.
Even this collaboration with Timbaland, a renowned star maker, can’t manage to rise above the quality of your average commercial jingle. Seriously, her voice couldn’t sound more synthetic if it came from a Speak and Spell (if you don’t know what a Speak and Spell is, look it up. It was the most freaky toy ever made). I’ll spare you my review of the song/video because, for some reason, I genuinely want Ashlee to make it. I want her to trump her older sister who has been in a freefall of likability since she broke up with Nick Lachey. True? Also, she’s now messing with Tony Romo and the Cowboys. That is utterly unacceptable. But, I digress…
Ashlee’s new release is crap. However, it is crap of the kind that people tend to scoop up these days. I have overheard innumerable conversations in which someone says, “That Paris Hilton song is actually pretty darn good!” However, Paris has a sex video and anyone who knows Jim Norton or pop culture’s basic tenets, you can do no wrong once you release a decent sex tape. While I’m on the subject of sex tapes and Ashlee, I know a hot, smarmy Blogger who would love to write, produce, direct, and co-star in such a tape (Ashlee is one of my guilty pleasures)
Best thing about this “friend” of mine is – He’s already NAKED!
Good luck Ashlee. You really are horrible, though.
