2005_09_artsashlee.jpgAshlee Simpson

is probably best known for either a) being Jessica Simpson's sister or b) lip synching on SNL. Neither of these are very good things to be known for, but man does that "La La" song make us sort of want to dance. And dance we will when we see her at the Supper Club tomorrow night.
She's gone blonde again...we're not sure how this will affect her performance, but the bleach certainly hasn't harmed her brain, as Ashlee managed to tip-toe her way around our questions like a well-trained PR puppet. But whatever, we'll still dance.
