Ashlee Simpson - Bittersweet World

2008-06-05 08:04
She manages to use all her pseudo personalities in this album: her accent changes, her voice changes, her sound changes. It's a dizzying experience. But is it any good?

Well, infamously, Eminem once refused to diss Ashlee after that whole lip-synching incident because his 10-year old daughter was a fan. And therein lies the answer, Miss Simpson is like a 10-year old playing dress-up. And she's getting paid for it. It's a "Bittersweet World" indeed. Part of that Hollywood brat pack along with Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff, music is just something Ashlee does because she can. Reality is, she's nothing more than the poor man's Avril Lavigne. Yes, we went there.

It's the attack of the shape-shifter. She can morph into anyone, 80s Madonna meets Gwen Stefanie, The Bangles and even some weird unknown wannabe with a cross-continental accent. Yes, Ashlee Simpson is pop's schizoid freak.
