Ashlee Simpson says 'No' to Playboy

Published: 2006-07-11
Pop star Ashlee Simpson has proudly turned down Playboy when the magazine asked her to pose.

Once known only as fellow pop starlet Jessica Simpson's little sister, the younger Simpson made a name for herself by scoring a number one record in 2004 with Autobiography.

In spite of her embarrassingly lip synching incident on Saturday Night Live, she still managed a number one spot with her new album I Am Me in 2005 on the back of catchy singles like "Boyfriend," "L.O.V.E" and her brand new single "Invisible."

With all of the success she's had, it's no wonder that the infamous men's magazine was courting her for their latest issue with a cool $4 million payoff, but the singer couldn't care less about the money.

In spite of all the rumors swirling whether or not Ashlee would actually pose for the magazine, the 21-year-old eventually turned the offer down, if only more celebrities would do the same and show their fans the same self respect.

Self respect? In her new video for Invisible she doesn't even look like herself with her new nose and lips. I think that's an equally egregious disservice to her young female fans. When I saw that video this morning I was just mad. She's ridiculous.
