ASSlee Is Not Abandoning Music Career! Coming Back As A "Folk" Artist!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAshlee Simpson

ASSlee Simpson has been keeping a pretty low-profile since she got her ass fired from Melrose Place, and we've been wondering what exactly her next inspired career move would be!

Luckily, we will not have to speculate anymore, because gurlfriend is dusting off that 'music' career she left for dead a few years back and trying her hand at - GET THIS - a folk album!

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Check out this little snippet from Paper Magazine:

Do you know the direction of the forthcoming record?
I do, I do. I see the light. But I'm definitely not spilling the beans just yet. It's definitely a bit folky.

Way more folky than "Pieces of Me"?
It had that feel, but I'm really going for it this time!

Well, "LaLa" and "Outta My Head" were pretty major.
Well, I'm always a kooky person, so you're not going to lose that. But for me, there's an era of music that I miss and I wanna make that kind of music. The songs that we need to hear.

Yes, yes, and YES!

This is hilariously wonderful and bad news!

And just so we're clear, bb. You understand that folk usually means just you and a guitar. That shiz is harder to fake perfect. We hope you know that!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a brand new musical endeavor from Ashlee??

    the reason that I liked ashlee and still do but it was 'cuz she was a rocker- pop diva stick what you know more ashlee but then again who knows how the songs will sound at the end will see about that.



  2. 2

    She is actually pretty good. If it wasn't for the SNL incident and being a Simpson, she would be judged a bit more fairly. Give her a chance.



  3. 3

    Ashlee does not possess the musical ability or talent to be a Folk artist. Those are some of the most talented people in music. This is so ridiculous.

    i luv her, i hope she rocks it out, i don't get why you are always doggin her about the lispync thing, EVERY singer does GET OVER IT.

    Uhm…folk is "you and a guitar?" That went out with Woody Guthrie. FYI There was a guy named Bob Dylan who electrified folk in the 60s. What does it say about you that you are stupider than Ashlee Simpson?



  6. 6

    Oh lordy… so disgusted right now that I don't have words. Go have another kid or something or hang with your doucher husband. YOU HAVE NO, 0, ziltch, nadda talent at all. You're ugly, dumb and a fucking poser. GO AWAY. Little J just moved up a damn point cause you're back on the scene. Thanks bitch. I almost had forgotten you existed. The nightmare is not over I guess. blaaa



  7. 7

    I always liked that song "Boyfriend". =]



  8. 8

    too much text doodle, writer



  9. 9

    She's still better than the lame artists you have tried to promote from ground zero…atleast she's had a few hit singles and reasonably decent album sales.



  10. 10

    Re: karumba – there's been a movement to go back to the accoustic guitar really. REAL folk has always been "you and a guitar" which as people are poining out is a lot harder to break into then pop/rock/country is.

    Re: rosebud99 – Not really… she would probably still be at the same level as Avril Lavigne. The rocker who tried to change genres in the middle of a successful poppunk career

    LOVE U ASHLEE…HURRY UP & GET IN THE STUDIO!!!



  12. 12

    "public joke"



  13. 13

    i think she's great and can't wait to hear what she's been up to. love her music and her voice. i still don't understand where all this hate comes from perez.



  14. 14

    THERE IS A WAR AGAINST THE PEOPLE AND THEIR CHILDREN AND IT COMES IN THE FORM OF MEDICAL TYRANNY.



  15. 15

    don't get how you can talk about a MOTHER the way you do.. leave the poor girl alone, she is beautiful and doing something she loves and wants to do..since when is that a crime?



  16. 16

    FINALLY THANK U PEREZ, i was seeking for this info yesterday and u get it easily ♥ write good things about her, give her a chance, let her shines :D



  17. 17

    HAHAHAHA OMG I totally agree with Perez on this one. Asslee Simpleton is so beyond fake it is pathetic. Going into another genre isn't going to make her any more legitimate. Did she just wake up one day and decide to do folk music? Desperation!!!!
    I wonder if this transition will be as smooth as Jessica's music career in country? LOL

    I've always loved Ashlee Simpson's music.
    It was released before the teeny bob. ex. Selena Gomez ugh….
    Love or hate Ashlee Simpson her songs are pretty
    catchy tunes! :)



  19. 19

    i used to love this girl, but her last album was crap and she just looks like hell. she needs to give it up and focus on being a mom and let her husband make all the money.



  20. 20

    i will say this though, in response to the people who keep hating on her, girl does have talent. i saw her perform as roxie in chicago on broadway and she has a hell of a voice. maybe she should stick with that.



  21. 21

    i dont think she abandoned music… i think MUSIC ABANDONED HER!



  22. 22

    PEREZ UR SO ANNOYING ASHLEE SIMPSON ACTUALLY HAS HAD SOME SUCCESS. ATLEAST SHES NOT GETTING WASTED EVERY 5 MINUTES. GO SNORT SOME MORE COKE W UR GAGAWHORE BIFFLE



  23. 23

    no i am not. wot a fucker



  24. 24

    Who told her that she can sing?



  25. 25

    She & What's His Face must be broke…Is her son Bronx a "Singer" too?



  26. 26

    JOKE



  27. 27

    NEW CLOTHING LINE, maybe a duet with Gwen Stefani (hey! she was at the same place with cameron diaz also about 3 days ago or something like that) / PEEEEREZ write nice about her!!! :(



  28. 28

    but i want it a mix of murder meets lala, it would be EPIC! and her



  29. 29

    SHE FAILED AT PUNK, GOT CAUGHT LIP SYNCING TWICE AND GOT A NOSE JOB AND MAKEOVER AND WE STILL DIDNT WANT HER SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS, FUCKING PLEASE!!! GIVE IT UP WE DO NOT WANT YOU ASSLEE YOU FUCKING NOBODY



  30. 30

    "Autotune" has become a music genre unto itself, hasn't it? So sad.



  31. 31

    you clearly no nothing perez so shut the fuck up! good for her, doing what SHE wants, not what the LABEL wanted her to do!. plus folk is not just guitar and a voice, it has more input than that…



  32. 32

    Folk begins with the voice. This is going to be a fail. Maybe she can get in one of those "One Night In …" Perez line ups. She can probably sing back up for Slimy or something.



  33. 33

    I love Ashlee Simpson and her music. She does have musical talent. There's a reason why she sold more records then Jessica… who is said to have a "Golden Voice". I think since that ONE SNL incident… One that everyone should let go off… It's been YEARS everyone… people underestimate her. I don't think she will go ALL THE WAY folk. I can't wait to hear her stuff. I've been waiting for a new album from her. Let's just hope she doesn't go Mandy Moore's route with her "Wild Hope" album. Lord…



  34. 34

    fucking Pete Wentz would be enough of a life for me



  35. 35

    to the people leaving positive comments were you toddlers or very young when she was a so called "musician"? Because she was a laughing stock who could perform live, got caught lip syncing not once but twice, was booed off the stage at an NFL game, then even after we as people said we didn't want her shoved down our throats she re-did herself with a nose job and blond hair, completely alienating her original fans and still flopped. Trust me, leave this bitch in the past, she is worthless and a complete joke. If you listen to her music I hope you enjoy lyrics written at a boardroom meeting and a voice belting them out with HELLA auto tune. GROSS



  36. 36

    Re: kaybaby – Just because someone's a mother doesn't mean they're immune to criticism. She is a bad singer, songwriter and actress and she was before she had a kid. It's not a crime, but how is she a professional musician when she's so poor at what she does?



  37. 37

    I consider the two times she was caught lip-synching to be a blessing. At least those listening weren't forced to endure her real live singing voice, which is awful.
    Folk music requires integrity and sincerity, neither of which she possesses. When she was caught lip-synching, she tried to lie her way through it saying he band played the wrong song and later changes to the acid reflux excuse. And then she appeared in Marie Clair magazine in a huge article embracing her looks and teaching girls to love their natural bodies and faces, etc. A month later, she shows up sporting an all-new nose. Her face lost all character and it was hard to recognize her. She's a fraud and can't be taken seriously.

    Re: happyXamp
    Depends what you define as REAL folk music. Other countries and cultures define folk as more than just "you and a guitar." For instance, some of the tradition Celtic and Eastern European folk music.



  39. 39

    I think being a member of a dysfunctional family whose former minister father manages both of the daughters is a big part of their/her problem. I'm sure they want the lord (using dad's "networking") to "make it happen" but think their lack of major talent and average looks have graciously held them both back. Neither one of them have "it" and "it" shows…They set their ego-driven aspirations too high for their own abilities. I hope they/she are intelligent enough to have figured it out with all of their failures.

    Re: shittin_condoms

    That was NOT punk.



  41. 41

    I saw her on Broadway as Roxie Hart in the Chicago musical and she carried out the singing and dancing beautifully. You saw it too Perez (in London), remember? You even commented how good she sounded and how that kind of musical display cannot be faked. I don't think she'll ever get a Grammy award, but I do like many of her songs and her unique singing voice.

    I liked her music WAY MORE than I likes Sliimy and his music !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  43. 43

    She is just trying to get Jessica to jump off a bridge.



  44. 44

    she may not great but i'd rather her her sing than her sister, or lady gag



  45. 45

    LOL that is the funniest thing I've heard all day the bitch can't sing end of story



  46. 46

    noooooooooooo….give it up u talentless shmuck !



  47. 47

  48. 48

    Re: Pmac Chicago – damn I couldn't have said it better!!



  49. 49

    the interviewer–and apparently Ashlee too–think that "Pieces of Me" is folky? That says a lot. Go get an education you dumb bitch.



  50. 50

    spilling the beans



  51. 51

    If her new album sounds anything like "Pieces of Me" or "LaLa" then I might buy it. I actually used to like her music!



  52. 52

    DEAD to you Perez, get over it! Pete's choice is Ashlee not you, stop the hating cuz before Lady GaGa's boom you was like Ashlee's dog. And all the people here stop being ignorant the Orange Bowl incident, she wasn't lipsyncing, it was all audio malfunction cuz Kelly Clarkson had the same problem. GET OVER IT, BRITNEY LIPSYNCS, CHRISTINA LIPSYNCS even MARIAH CAREY LIPSYNCS. And they supposed to have "more" talent than Ashlee. And the folk thing was a missunderstood she said that she will work with INDIE producers
