Ashlee Simpson calls Britney Spears trashy

I’ll hand it to those British journalists, they sure are tricky. Newly engaged, newly album released, and possibly newly knocked-up Ashlee Simpson was asked by a reporter what she thought “You’ve had one too many Britney Spears” means. Yes that’s right, in the U.K., having a “Britney Spears” is actually slang now. Instead of playing dumb – one of the few things the Simpson sisters are naturally good at – Ashlee went ahead and guessed – with unflattering results.

Whether it was a Freudian slip or not, the newly engaged songstress definitely let her opinion of the recovering mother of two be known during a visit across the pond this week… “In an interview the other day, they asked me what I thought, ‘You’ve had one too many Britney Spears’ means,” Ashlee says. “I was like, ‘What?’ And they said it means you’ve had one too many beers.”

Without missing a beat, “I was like, ‘Oh, you’ve had one too many trashy girls!” But the redheaded 23-year-old, falling into a fit of giggles, expressed remorse over the comment afterwards. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I just said that!” Ashlee says. “It was really bad. I felt horrible.”

I’m not sure if I’d call the Simpson sisters all-out trashy, but I really don’t think Ashlee is in any position to criticize. She’s not the bottom of the barrel or anything, but she’s not exactly classy either. Let’s not forget her short-lived reality show on MTV, where she burped, farted, was generally inept at all tasks, proving to the world how uncouth she was. Ashlee has yet to be a parent, but she might be dumb enough to make a few Britney-esq mistakes.

In other Britney news, she showed up for the finale of MTV’s Rock the Cradle, a reality show that stars the offspring of famous singers. Her longtime on/off manager Larry Rudolph is a judge on the show, and apparently Brit came out as a show of support to him. She sat backstage and didn’t draw a whole lot of attention according to Rudolph. If Brit’s getting to the point where she’s supporting people instead of the other way around, that’s a pretty big step. Who knows, maybe someday people will forget that she was ever trashy.

Here’s Britney leaving the trendy restaurant Sur after a business meeting yesterday, and leaving a Bally Total Fitness on Wednesday. Images thanks to WENN.

    No matter how trashy Ashley might feel Britney is, she’ll never have anything close to Britney’s success in the music industry.
    So I’m not quite sure why she thought she was being so clever and funny. Britney also didn’t rely on her sister’s career in order to fabricate one for herself.

  2. Bellatrix says:

    I share JM’s opinion on this matter : Ashlee Simpson somehow mocked Britney Spears. But in the end, it’s Britney who has had a huge international carreer and made a name in the music/show business.

    I’m not among the Britney supporters but can’t help feeling sorry for her. She seems to be on the good path to recovery.
    Here’s to hoping she’ll keep up the good work and enjoy being who she truly is (a mother and entertainer)… :-)

  3. Margo says:

    I’m sorry but this is just tasteless. It’s not funny to make fun of someone who has gone through so much. Sure Britney may have brung some of her problems on herself but none the less she’s still human. Ashley and her sister combined will never have the success that Britney has had.

  4. saintdevil says:

    Well, the expression: “Having too many Britney Spears” is kind of ambiguous!
    It could mean having nervous breakdowns or having snapshots of your vag taken or gaining weight due to frappucinos…

    But neither of those rhymes with “beers”!

    Asslee may not be as trashy as Brit, but she is an annoying, stuck-up fake.

  5. Priscilla says:

    Some people just cannot keep their mouth shut. Is she so stupid that she did not realize that all she did was hurt herself by criticizing another? Now everyone’s going to re-live all Ashley’s stale moments. DUH! She is not in any position to cast any stones at anyone especially praying on the sick. I don’t know about you guys, but I have had way to many played out, fake, lip-synching, and posing Ashley Simpson’s.

  6. Lisa says:

    Who the hell is Ashleeeeeeeeeee anyway? Has she done anything???????????

    I heard she sucked!

  7. DD says:

    Asslee and her stupid sister have always been the biggest Britney wannabes back when she was on top of her game. All she and her sister do is copy other artists, first she copied Avril Levigne and Amy Lee and now she copies Hayley Williams. She needs to get her own image and be herself.She’s a talentless shithead , not that Britney Spears isn’t trash, but Asslee isn’t any better.

  8. JM says:

    Everyone knows that Britney equals a headline of some sort, and apparently Ashley had an album or is about to have one, who really knows…(joking of course, since her shitface has been everywhere trying to promote herself)

    Anyway, I’m sure Britney was a last ditch effort for press.

    Priscilla, you are so right– let’s just start down the line of Ashley Simpson faux pas. Every new comment should name a different time Ashley Simpson made an ass out of herself.

  9. Bodhi says:

    I don’t think anyone will ever forget how trashy Britney is!

    Asslee is one of the biggest fakes in the entertainment world & while she may not walk around with awful extentions & frap stains on every garment, she is just trashy as Brit

  10. Cindy Kennedy says:

    I agree – Ashley Simpson is one of the biggest fakes and frauds in the entertainment business today. She got caught lip synching on Saturday Night Live, the show’s producers were disgusted with her. She is not a real singer. Pointing the finger at other celebrities isn’t going to help her cause any.

  11. MISSY says:

    People, just tell the truth and shame the devil, Britney is extremly trashy

  12. Meg says:

    When did Ashlee have a reality show on MTV? I thought only Jessica did…

  13. kate says:

    hi black pot – this is black kettle…..have you two met?

  14. How would a slip like that be Freudian? Do you know what a Freudian slip is?

    Anyway, Ashlee has issues but she’s classier (not that that’s saying much) and much better looking than Britney. So she can have some latitude with me on such comments.

  15. Jaclyn says:

    Ashlee may be right (for now, anyway), but Ashlee is an emo wannabee. And that is clearly worse!

  16. Angel says:



    “Trailer Trash Barbie”

    Big mouth.

    NO talent to speak of!

    This girl is disgusting.

  17. Sasha says:

    That’s comedy gold right there ! At least Brit-Brit actually sang her songs on Saturday Night Live, Ashlee.

  18. march_baby says:

  19. The Observer says:



    Shakira Mebarak have your office contact me so you can pay me the money you owe me.

  20. daisyfly says:

    Both can’t sing worth shit, both can’t act worth shit, and both have shit between their ears.

    Black…the pot is calling you.

  21. geeeee says:

    oh my God, you people need to think of some moore sayings! Every other post, “pot”, “kettle”, “black”. yeesh.

  22. Devilgirl says:

    Too bad Ashlee has never had the success or fame that Brit Brit has had, nor will she ever- Sounds as if the green eyed monster of jealousy has reared it’s ugly head. Brit may not be the classiest girl out there, but at least she isn’t hiding out and denying her problems and she seems to be doing just fine at the moment. Ashlee couldn’t give her cd’s away they are so lacking in any sort of musical or pop talent. She can only DREAM of being as trashy as Britney. By the way, I am not really a fan of Britney’s, but the no talent famewhore Simpson girls make me want to VOMIT!

  23. Imnotkidding says:

    Ashley would know, after living with Jessica! Slut city USA. Some how Ashley doesn’t come across as such an “easy mark” as her “sleep with me, please” sis.

  24. Imnotkidding says:

    Britney is so DONE! Her only talent was looking young and cute and half naked. Now that’s over.

  25. JudyK says:

    Has Simposn taken a good look at herself lately? Brit has more class than the off key singing non sensation in her little finger . She gets plastic surgery ,colors her hair obnoxious red,has her father peddaling her like a pimp and she calls someone else trashy?

  26. journey says:

    maybe big time wrestling could have a match between ash and brit for the title of trashiest pot/kettle. my money would be on brit. she’d be jamming off those ropes clotheslining little whiney giggling ashley.

  27. Dee says:

    What’s with the ‘oh, I can’t believe I just said that?’

    Dumbass, of course you did, you know it would get you a little bit of media! More coverage on Trashlee Simpson, oh wow… -groan-

    Really? Join the ever-growing list of people who have already called Brit ‘trashy’ and wait in line, you cowardly leech.

  28. Ack! says:

    Actually, Asshole Simp., maybe just SHUTTING THE HELL UP would be your best move. Ever.

  29. Henny Penny says:

    I would not describe either of these girls’ families as classy. So STFU Ashley.

  30. Other Karen says:

    Ashlee just blurted it out. Give her a break. While Ashlee isn’t all that, she isn’t “trashy” per se. Worthless in the opinion of many, apparently, but trashy has a specific connotation.

    Britney has been very trashy the last few years, a couple of years before the mental illness (recall her Kevin Federline days.) Britney seems like a very sweet girl, but that’s independent of trashiness.

    Didn’t Ashlee get semi-decent reviews when she did the musical Chicago?

  31. Brit_lovaaa says:

    hmmm looks like ashley simpson was fool enough to make a boooooooo—merang for herself….she’s not more than a fake annoying girl that jealous with BRIT Brit or at least Brit was better to say she’s NOT THAT INNOCENCE..Ashley Just an In_Non_Sense….!!!!

  32. Ashley says:

    I’m no fan of Ashley or Britney, but I would have thought the same thing Ashley did about the, “one too many Britney Spears,” line..
    Dumb British slang doesn’t even make sense.

  33. Kyymberlyn says:

    Brit was a mega star. Ashlee rides her sisters coat tails, what there is of them. They are both talentless. I really wish they’d just fall off the radar already. Is’nt Pete gay?? What is that about? Did she get knocked up by Fezz and he bolted and now she’s doing the fag hag thing?

  34. Terriann says:

    Sounds like to me that ashlee is very jelious and only wishes that she could have been some what as popular is brittany was and still is. It is sad that instead of thinking of a way to make urself something u put down a girl that has made her self something. yes the things that brittany has done have been off the wall but see none of would know anything if she was not famous, and not saying that i have done the shit that she has done but come on give her a break they make such a big deal of the shit because of who she is if it were u or me no one would care. and ashlee u are so fake and lets not for get about your face it is some one eles not urs we remember how u use to look lets not for get ur fuck ups too u fake bitch

  35. Reality says:

    Fact: Jessica Simpson is a better singer than Britney, anyone with ears knows that.
    Fact: Britney was a great entertainer and made mega bucks more than Jess.
    Fact: Neither of them are classy. Britney is trashy, Jess not so much but neither has class.

    I have yet managed to stay clear of anything Ashlee, except maybe the odd blurb on the radio. Not really interested. Let’s face it; it was a bitchy comment from Ashlee but those kinda comments occur every millisecond around the world.

    Oh and just for the record all 3 have been busted lip syncing. Deal with it.


    How about we all try and be a little less concerned with celebrity lives and a little more concerned with our own??

  36. British Lezer says:

    Its not “slang now”…its cockney rhyming slang…in other words, anything that rhymes with beers…you could say you’ve had one too many scary fears…and it would also mean beers…do u just live here or are u British…cuz ur kind of lost

  37. Rick says:

    You can talk about Britney all you want but the girl has talent, money and she’s still very sexy. :mrgreen:

  38. Ashley says:

    To British Lezer…

    I get it now, Spears rhymes with Beers. Ha ha…I’m in America so I didn’t get it at first..

  39. louise says:

    Ashlee simpson might have just blurted it out the first time, but I have just heard her repeat the same comment on a Channel4 show here in the UK. She was giggling and repeating what she has said to Kelly Rowlan.
    Kelly was shocked with her comment!

  40. Robin says:

    Ashlee and Jessica are very talented singers. I can ´t say the same about Britney
