Ashlee Simpson caught heat not only for her lip-synching on ‘Saturday Night Live’ last year, but for blaming her band afterwards. This time, the singer insisted her bandmates all share her dressing room before the ‘SNL’ performance on October 8th. “They locked everyone else out,” a source revealed. “She went out of her way to hug the band afterward.” Simpson also treated the band to a post-show dinner.
Ashlee Simpson Snaps Back At ‘SNL’ Critics
Ashlee Simpson spoke with The New York Daily News about her critics following her 2004 ‘Saturday Night Live’ singing debacle: “It was so weird. I have awesome fans, and the people who were not nice to me after that ‘SNL’ thing were, like, old men. They don’t listen to my music anyway, so it’s like, leave me alone! We were in the middle of a war, and America took a 20-year-old girl and went crazy about that, ripping her apart. It was sad and embarrassing about America.”
