Siblings Can Relate To Ashlee Simpson’s ‘Autobiography’
YM magazine caught up with Ashlee Simpson and asked her about following in Jessica’s footsteps. “People run up to her and tell her what a great role model she is,” Ashlee said. “I agree- Jessica’s the best- but that’s a lot for me to live up to. I think most siblings can relate to Shadow. It’s about finding your own identity and realizing you don’t have to be like anyone else. I had to examine my strengths and see that I was talented in my own way. I couldn’t constantly measure myself based on my sister. But when Jessica heard that song she cried. She said it was the most beautiful song she ever heard. But I’d rather be compared to her than anyone else. But once people hear my album, they’ll see how different our sounds are. Being sisters is the only reason to compare us.”
