Ashlee Simpson

The picture says it all.

I don't think she looks bad in this photo. She's skinny, but she's also on tour and that's such a hard thing on the body . . . it seems like everyone loses what little extra flesh they have when they go on tour.

But she looks so different. She's totally adopted her sister's look and it's just creepy. And I can post additional pictures showing her bones popping out of her back, ala MK Olsen circa 2004. She's definitely not looking healthy these days.

I wasn't sure why you posted it. I totally agree on the morphing of Ashlee into Jessica and that that's creepy. And I know she's super skinny right now and have seen the other photos from this appearance at Pink, but I really do think it's hard for people who are already thin to maintain weight on tour. I'm getting de-sensitized to celebrity weight issues and may be approaching bobble-head outrage fatigue. I just don't care anymore. Be skinny, eat cake, whatever. I need to be outraged about something else for awhile; I think I'm going to go on a blogging rampage about celebrities insisting on getting their pets from a breeder or pet store instead of a humane society.

I think that Ashlee's problems extend past just not being able to maintain weight on tour. She has been getting thinner and thinner for about six (or more) months now. Not a good sign.

But Holt, I will totally support your new object of rage.

Anyone remember that scene in Notting Hill where they're all comparing reasons their lives suck to win the last brownie and Julia Roberts' character says she's been hungry since she was 19?

I think my anorexia fatigue has reached the point where I just accept that many young women in Hollywood are not a healthy weight, and that's a regrettable part of their jobs, but a choice they make every day. Would I rather they be healthy? Yes. Would I rather their families forced a grilled cheese sandwich down their throats instead of encouraging the weight loss to keep the gravy train rolling? Sure! Do I wish that the press and the casting directors and the fashion magazines didn't encourage the rail thin ideal? You betcha. But I really don't want to talk about it anymore (I say as I comment for the third time on this post). I totally see why everyone else remains fascinated though. Are you guys going to have to revoke my junkette privileges?
