Rescue Ashlee Simpson's Career

If anyone caught the Orange Bowl or at least have surfed the web... the boo birds were out in full force for Ashlee Simpson's performance this past week. IMO it was worse than the booing Destiny's Child got from the Philadelphia fans (who have the rep for being ugly mean). A big embarassment/ negative publicity and which is alsp coupled with the whole SNL fiasco...yikes... where does Ashlee Simpson go from here?

If you were her manager or in control of her career... hell, if you were Ashlee Simpso, what would you do or what advice would you give?

How can one save her career so that it will flourish alah Alanis Morrisette.

Did you see the SNL jig? She should work towards a riverdance revival instead of "singing"

Yeah, she can't sing decently enough for a wedding band, and she's screwed her career up on her own.

She's fucked.

She's the Ryan Leaf of pop singing in 2004.

I would tell her to go design handbags or something that didn't involve her voice.

That's what I think and the media is embracing the negativity... the teeny boppers, who I assume are buying her records and helping to propel her career will be too embarassed to buy her record b/c of the negative publicity. Can her career be Creedesque and resist the negative media backlash and her faux pauxs?

IMO she her screw ups and the fact that someone made her do the Orange Bowl gig which had the potential to backfire on her big time is a case of bad management IMO. Also the La La song sucks ass compared to her first single... what are they thinking?

I saw the whole performance.... that song was awful and I'm pretty open minded with music in general.

oh my God, how embarassing.

she may mime, but that's awful for anyone to face

I don't mind her, to be honest. Her voice isn't so bad and her music is catchy. It's just good, fun bubblegum pop.
It's weird how things change... in the summer, when I was out there, she was everywhere, and seemed to have a huge following.

erm, not so keen on that whole anarchy punkish thing that she's trying to pull.

Go get an honest job instead of mooching off a famous name.

She already had it pretty good with Jessica funneling funds to that entire money grubby family, so I don't see why this singing thing is necessary at all.

I think the hack career path goes acting->singing->porn.

Tell me "Ashlee" isn't a good name for porn.
