Legendary photographer David LaChapelle is lashing out at Jessica Simpson and her sister Ashlee Simpson. “They’re everything that’s wrong with music,” LaChapelle seethed to the New York Daily News. “Out of everything combined, they’re everything wrong with culture, and everything wrong with art, and what we think of as art and musical culture – in one family!”
He continued his verbal assault on the singing siblings by adding, “They’re nothing. They have nothing. They hold no interest whatsoever for anybody. They’re reality-red-carpet, lip-synching television stars. I don’t know what they are beyond that. I don’t think they offer anything.”
The source of LaChapelle’s anger is apparently their refusal to pose for him for a Rolling Stone cover, according to a source close to the Simpsons.
