Ashleegate

You can watch/hear the fiasco here. So embarrassing. According to some people on the Velvet Rope, the fault probably lies with the drummer for pressing the wrong song on a "DAT" machine. That doesn't negate the fatc she was going to lipsync on SNL.

Best comment on the Velvet Rope about this (by "Tomars"): Y'know I can't help but feel a little sorry for her. This kinda stuff hits shallow/2-d people really hard

The biggest question is not about Ashlee Simpson (don't you hate that spelling?), who will be a distant memory in a few years. It's how SNL ended up at this point. Didn't they use dot have performers like Elvis Costello and Patti Smith? How have they sunk so low? One would assume it is the power of Ashlee's daddy/manager combined with a dire change in demographics and Lorne Michael's craven sell-out tendencies. Whatevah, it will probably be the only funny moment on SNL this year.

I can't get the link to the footage to work! That's probably a good thing, though, as I get so horribly embarrassed for others that I wouldn't be able to watch the whole thing anyway.
