Ashlee Simpson avoids Ellen Degeneres’ pregnancy question

Ashlee Simpson has her story and she’s sticking to it: People have been saying she’s pregnant for a while, she think it’s personal and she’s not going to address the rumors. She’s basically begging us: “Please keep talking about me and speculating as if you care about the state of my womb. And buy my new album, thanks!”

Ashlee brought her goofy laugh and lousy singing voice to the Ellen Degeneres show yesterday. She said she had an “inseparable relationship” with Pete Wentz, who she referred to as her fiance. She said she cries when she’s apart from him. Ashlee also mentioned that she has “clip on” hair when Ellen asked.

When Ellen asked “Are you or are you not pregnant?” she answered:

“That has been going on [the pregnancy rumors] for quite a while, but that is definitely something that I chose personally not to discuss. Except for the fact maybe, do I look like I had 10 cheeseburgers or something? (stands up briefly) because I don’t think I do.”

Ellen made her promise that she would tell people she was pregnant before J.Lo did, and she pinky swore to do that.

Then Ashlee told a stupid story about how a monkey at a Costa Rican resort stole her designer stuff, name dropping all the labels the crafty primate took.

She also talked about how she worked until 4:00 in the morning with Timbaland.

Ellen busted out asking “Is it a boy or a girl” and Ashlee just laughed again. After Ashlee’s performance, Ellen put her hand on her stomach jokingly.

Here are the videos.

    I get the feeling she is making up the pregnancy story to get attention – very typical of her. She has virtually no singing ability whatsoever, no talent so she gets publicity in other ways.

  2. AC says:

    I think this pregnancy thing is so transparent and stupid that I wish people would stop asking her. Wouldn’t it be great if she went on a bunch of interviews and no one took the bait and asked her?? If people were like “oh okay you don’t want to tell us” and just shut the hell up about it. Its obviously (true or not) being used for publicity and I think its so stupid.

  3. CJ says:

    Her boyfriend already denied it, so what’s the point of her being coy about it?

    I never even knew she HAD another album comming out until I read she was engaged and suspected to be pregant.

  4. Larissa says:

    pregnant or not

    why the hell is she wearing all back and this ugly polo-styled shirt? I am sure while promoting your cd ya should be wearing something more appealing than that…unless you are trying to increase the buzz about pregnancy!
    Ridiculous how obvious it is! But when you are completely UNTALENTED…ya do what you gotta do! Poor girl, just pathetic….

    She’s such an untalented attention whore, I think it is a publicity stunt. This sounds awful, but would she be so desperate to use this to the point that once her album fails,she’d say she miscarried (since she was never pregnant) for sympathy & attention to boost record sales???

  7. Sasha says:

    What was the question ? “Is it really his ?”

  8. Jody says:

    Who’s the Daddy? Oh damn, sounds like a job for Maury!

    Since when does sympathy and personal attention gets you high ticket and album sales. I mean, if I do not like the movie or the music of a celebrity I am not suddenly going to go and see their films and buying their songs just because someone might be pregnant or getting married or lost a leg (I would feel sorry for them of course, but…) or something. No one would do that too right?
    So were to this celebrities get this expectations from.

  11. journey says:

    there’s a lot of sheep in this world, enonymous, who will buy an album just because the gick’s face is all over the media. horrifyingly sad, but true, talent often takes a back seat to good, bad or indifferent p.r. how else to explain the careers of so many talentless famous people?

  12. anonymous says:

    So, just wondering, why would anyone think the fact that she may or may not be pregnant have anything to do with record sales? Just because someone is prego doesn’t mean I am going to run out and see their movie or buy their album. That is just dumb.
