Ashlee Simpson: Doing what She Enjoys

Advertising Information for vagmusic

Ashlee Simpson is not only the younger sister of Jessica Simpson; she is one of the most important young pop voices currently. She was born in 1984 in Texas, and when she was 4 years old, she started taking dancing lessons. Her career started as a dancer in her sister's show. However, she not only knew how to dance; she was also an actress who participated in different TV programs: "Malcolm in the Middle", “Saved by the Bell” and "7th Heaven". However, her opportunity to start the music career she had always dreamt of came with "The Ashlee Simpson Show" on MTV.

Her debut album Autobiography (2004) was a real success and the single “Pieces of Me”, was, first, a national sensation and then, a worldwide hit. Nevertheless, I Am Me (2005) is the album that shows the biggest change in Ashlee. She is now more mature both as singer and songwriter. The themes in this new album try to explore the dark side everyone has, but to find the positive and lighter side also. Fun cannot be absent of the subject matter of her songs and her videos.

In I Am Me, Ashlee worked with the producer John Shanks who has worked with other talented artists: Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, and Melissa Etheridge. The singles “Boyfriend” and “L.O.V.E” have been very successful and the key of this success may be found in the philosophy of this young singer and songwriter: "I'm not Mariah Carey, but I love to sing. It's a joy to me. I don't do it for anyone else – I do it for me." Ashlee certainly loves music and enjoys that people take pleasure in the songs she writes.
