Saturday Night Live?
if Ashlee Simpson's career didn't look prefabricated enough, from the MTV
series, to the dyed hair, to the rocker girl pose she's adopted, now the
poor girl has commited the ultimate singing sin; getting caught lip syncing
on stage. From the first time the 20-year-old took the stage on Saturday
night's new episode there were clearly problems getting in sync. When she
took the stage to sing her single "Pieces of Me" she started singing
live, but then clearly cut to a pre-recorded track. Okay that was embarassing,
but she could recover. However, when Ashlee took the stage 39 minutes later
the same pre-recorded track of "Pieces of Me" started again and

At the end of the show Ashlee apologized, but laid the blame on her band, claiming they started playing the wrong song. Uh, okay. Today her father/manager Joe Simpson told Ryan Seacrest that poor Ashlee was suffering from acid reflux and that he insisted she sing to a track. "Just like any artist in America, she has a backing track that she pushes so you don't have to hear her croak through a song on national television," Joe said.

Y'know it's sad when Jessica Simpson is the talented one in the family.
