Finally, she got busted on SNL. Now people can actually see the TRUE fake she is. The fact is that she can't sing. She showed herself singing live on her show in the studio, no one would've even have known she couldn't sing if it wasn't for her show! She messed herself up! Anyway, she claims that she's a "rock girl", well guess what Ashlee if you were would people who buy your albums also be picking up Usher and Britney CDs as it says on the "Customers who bought this also bought" section of Amazon.com. No! Sure maybe if you like pop you'll like this album but if you're a person who likes rock and looking for an actual rock album you WOULD NOT like this. This chick is no different than Hilary Duff..or even Britney for that matter. Save your money if you like rock music, because this isn't it, this isn't the album to buy if you're a rock fan. But if you're a fan of Britney, Avril, Hilary then this is the album for you!

And it's not "punk" either.

There are actually some music artists out there (mainly underground ones) who actually produce good music. They don't rely on their family member's success, they're not friends of another band to get signed, and they're not good buddies with the label. Those bands, or artists, actually play good music to get signed. True artists sure don't lip sing either, then blame it on their band or lie about an illness they have *cough acid reflex disease cough*. Ashlee Simpson was never a good artist, and she only became popular because Jessica Simpson is her sister (thus putting her into the spotlight), MTV played it all day (while the brainwashed masses ran to the stores to pick up tihs album immediately), and the radio stations and media didn't tell people that she has "talent" and that shes "punk" (actual quotes from an AOL music guide). Ashlee Simpson was always a truly bad artist with no real talent before, and only got signed because of the reasons I have already told you about, but now she just dropped the ball. She got CAUGHT lip singing, in public, on Saturday Night Live (SNL), then later on she blamed it on the band! She obviously coulden't think of a better excuse at the time, so after a few sleepless nights and worried filled nights, she told sources such as MTV and Yahoo! that she had acid reflex disease! Actually, she probably just paid someone like she does to write her songs! I bet she could never think of any of those lyrics herself, even though they aren't really that good and are not from the heart. Ashlee Simpson disgusts me, and even her band thought it was funny when she lip sung in public and was caught! This is whats truly wrong with the music industry today, and if you buy it, you are promoting a fake, a liar, and a truly horrible "artist". Thats my word.

Versatility is overrated. Take Tiger Woods: a guy who has devoted his entire life to the sport of golf and has succeeded because of his single-minded determination. Intentions of his parents and his recent slide into mortality (thanks Nike!) aside, Woods has surpassed any reasonable expectations for the sport and has made himself a superstar in the process.

Now, take Ashlee Simpson: a girl who has devoted her entire life to becoming famous and succeeded because of her single-minded determination (read: sister's industry contacts). Along with Jessica, Ashlee has been groomed since birth for stardom, having danced since the age of three and becoming the youngest person ever admitted into the prestigious School of American Ballet. Add an acting career and now an album to the resume and you have a burgeoning career in a variety of artistic endeavors. Which is why it should be little surprise that much of Autobiography comes off as a teenage girl learning the ropes of music, sometimes succeeding, sometimes embarrassing herself.

"You think you know me" are the lyrics that open the album, leveling the common complaint of celebrity v. public. The song goes on to metaphorically detail the journey that she's gone through to reach the heights of stardom. It's an age-old trope and a boring one at that, hardly helped by Simpson's lackluster rhyming of the middle-class "stains on my t-shirt" and "I'm the biggest flirt". It's hardly an encouraging start, but Simpson regains her footing on the Dave Matthews/John Mayer instrumentation and half-rap of "Pieces of Me". Here Simpson gets to stretch out a bit vocally, going from impassioned wail to innocent cooing ably.

I can understand how middling performers insulate themselves with sycophants and yes-men so they become out of touch with their own relevance, but I am bewildered by all of the favorable reviews here! This young lady has mediocre talent at best, and anybody with a producer can sound OK with enough tweaking. But is this really the best we can do?

People at the Orange Bowl were right to boo her.

I saw her show on MTV & caught her talking about "Bible stories" (the storyteller was Jewish & trying to explain Yom Kippur).

Ignorance may be bliss, but that was offensive.

We are all dumber for having been exposed to Ashlee Simpson.
