Another Letter Of Truth

Ashlee Letter to Fans
10/26/2004 12:47:42 PM - by ashlee simpson

Hey guys!

I'm sure you all have figured out how crazy its been the last few days,but I just wanted to personally write to y'all-my true fans-and thank you for your support and love. I have decided to speak openly and honestly about what happened on snl because I want you guys to know what really happened. My acid refux started acting up and I know my real fans know that music and performing is my true passion and you support me for that....I couldn't control what happened that day. People always say things that are hurtful,and I encourage my fans to do what I do and not read what people are saying on the internet...in a couple of days everyone's attention will be on someone else. As far as me and my band are concerned...we are all a family and love each other very much-they are the best guys in the world and I wouldn't want anyone else to be with me at this time.

Keep up the support...its the love my fans have shown me that makes me want to go back out there and continue to prove all the negative press wrong!

Look out for me to go on tour starting in January...its gonna be awesome!

I love you guys!!

Ash


This letter was posted on her official website today. As long as she doesn't sprial down like Britney has, I think she's going to be O.K. Time will tell.

"Got Stains On My T-Shirt ..."

As I said before, the rally last night was fun but loooong! We waited, along with thousands of others, for a long time. Eventually, Bon Jovi arrived, sang some songs and then John Kerry came out and wowed the crowd













Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm was on hand to partake in the festivities too! It was pretty cool being that close to the next president of the United States of America! It was so worth it! If you get the chance, try to go to a rally -- it will renew your faith in a Kerry Victory!!!

And AshleeGate rolls on. As if the horrible debacle from Saturday night wasn't bad enough, yesterday saw a barrage of explanations flying everywhere over "what really happened on SNL". The final word, apparently, is that she was suffering from acid reflux which stole her voice. She was determined to sing live (despite doctor's orders) but her father insisted that she use the backing track to fortify her voice. It was the "first time" she ever had to use a backing track and BAM! she got caught. You can read the full explanation in THIS STORY. Ashlee even called TRL yesterday to explain her side of the story.

I wonder if she'll ever get to do Saturday Night Live again to redeem herself? My guess is no ...



Last night she did perform live at the Radio Music Awards. I couldn't find video of the performance to share with you but she did make reference to the SNL fiasco.



As she was ready to perform her band started playing Pieces of Me (the song that malfunctioned Saturday night) and she yelled out "Wait! Wrong song! Just kidding ..." and then, laughing, ripped into Autobiography, the song she was supposed to sing on SNL when she messed up. This morning she went on the Today show to explain to Katie Couric what "really" happened Saturday night. Pure damage control ... but the smart thing to do





I don't care, I still love Ashlee!

But, let's do the other news now:
  • HERE is the umpteen-millionth article about how Ikea is coming to Detroit. The proposed store in Canton Township would be the fourth IKEA in the upper Midwest. The retailer currently has locations in Schaumburg, Ill., and Bloomington, Minn., and last month it broke ground on a new store in Bolingbrook, Ill. Pending approval, construction on the Michigan store could start in the spring and open for business in the summer of 2006, the company said. We'll see ...
  • The new Eminem video which RIPS INTO GWB has leaked to the 'Net. A video for the song is currently being streamed at the Guerrilla News Network, www.gnn.tv. In the animated clip the rapper is seen mocking some of Bush's biggest gaffs -- including reading a book upside down ... Also in the clip there's cartoon footage of soldiers being given their orders to go to Iraq, a woman given an eviction notice and various newspaper clippings about the war ... The video ends with a message urging people to vote. And I urge you to vote for Kerry.
  • Cingular got the go-ahead to purchase AT&T Wireless to create the largest mobile phone company in the US. Cingular said it closed its $41 billion purchase AT&T Wireless (AWE) on Tuesday ... Cingular received approval for the deal earlier in the day from the Federal Communications Commission. The Department of Justice approved the acquisition on Monday. I doubt I'll see any savings on my mobile phone bill but ... maybe some day?
  • It's official, let's welcome Bennifer 2.0. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have gone public with their romance for the first time after the movie hunk treated his new Jen to a baseball treat at the weekend. The cute couple, who met on the set of Daredevil, were spotted among fans at Boston, Massachusetts' Fenway Park, on Saturday and Sunday for Affleck's beloved Boston Red Sox's World Series opening games against the St Louis Cardinals. The couple were pictured sharing a hotdog and cuddling as baseball fans around them cheered and jibed them. Affleck was approached to throw out the first ball before Saturday's game, but he declined. He starts the week a very happy man - his team won the first two games. Any bets on how long this one will last? J. Lo and Marc Anthony are still going strong ...
And that's all I got for now. I'm going to keep looking for that Ashlee video because I know a few of you hoped to see it. I'll be back if need be ... LATERS!
