Ashlee Simpson

She might have pretended that she didn’t want to be looked at as Jessica Simpson’s little sister when it came to her music career, but honestly, where would this child have been if her older sister hadn’t paved a way for her? Due to her sister’s success with reality TV and music, her baby sister obtained her own reality TV program, The Ashlee Simpson Show, and easily got her foot in the door both with TV and with a music deal. But aside from that, her music success was a lot different than Jessica’s, as well as her life direction. While her debut album, Autobiography, went triple platinum, her singing talents were found to be questionable and after she was caught lip-synching on Saturday Night Live, she ditched being a pop star to be a wife and mother, and after about three years, she filed for divorce. Since then, she’s just been working on the fashion side of things, collaborating with her sister’s popular brand to create fashions for girls the 7-16 range.
