Ashlee Simpson shoots her 'Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)' music video in the desert in Acton, CaliforniaThe reality webisode series ‘Being… Ashlee Simpson’ has made its debut at Pepsi Smash on Yahoo! Music. The series documents Ashlee’s life during the process of making her new album, ‘Bittersweet World’. The first webisode gives an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into her video shoot for ‘Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya).’

“You guys are on the set of my video ‘Out of My Head’,” Ashlee said introducing the clip. “We’re about to go in for the first shot. As you can see, my mom and my hairstylist Kenna are already goofing off. They both have wigs on, so it should be a fun day.”

Talking about the video’s location, Ashlee said, “Today we are in Acton, California. It’s a little bit in the middle of nowhere. It’s an hour away from home. I don’t know how much is around here. It’s kind of nice to be away from everything. It’s super cold here and it’s windy and so we’ve got little heaters going on.”

On working with director Allen Ferguson on the music video, Ashlee said, “Allen and I worked on the concept together. It was a cool thing, we went back and forth discussing the concept, and he’d always come back with something so genius. I would just tell him a little piece like I’m into Dali or whatever it may be and he’d always come back with something great.”

“Video shoots are a lot of fun because you get to do action and all sorts of crazy things you never thought you would do,” Ashlee said about her involvement in all aspects of the video. “There’s a lot of running in this video. Running from people and running from myself. I like to do all my own stunts.”

We have a new single, ‘Little Miss Obsessive,’ coming out. Everything is great!” But shockingly poor radio play of the disc’s crucial lead single ‘Outta My Head’ would suggest otherwise, explaining the rush to release a second single well before the album comes out.

Ashlee Simpson ‘Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)!’ Making The Video

Footage from the making of Ashlee Simpson’s new video for ‘Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)!’ has been posted online. The clip features a behind-the-scenes tour, taking you straight to the video shoot and offers a glimpse into Ashlee’s experience on set. Simpson explained the story behind the Salvador Dali inspired video, and she provided a peek into what it was like to film stunts on a harness and learn how to punch for her fight scene. Also seen in the clip are her Fall Out Boy boyfriend Pete Wentz and Kenna.

“I wanted to do a video about realism,” Ashlee explained. “I’m a big Dali fan. It’s definitely an interesting video. This video is definitely a physical video. I got to be on a harness for the first time, so I did spinning around, and I was upside down. I got to punch, which I don’t really get to do in my real life, so it’s always fun. Anything you want to do you can do it in a video. So far, probably the best thing that I’ve done is being on the harness. Being able to fly, I kind of felt like Peter Pan.”

Fall Out Boy’s Trohman Defends Ashlee Simpson

Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman has taken the story written by New York Daily News Gossip Columnist Ben Widdicombe regarding fellow band mate Pete Wentz’s girlfriend Ashlee Simpson very personally. So much so that he has issued a response to the news item on his personal blog on Friendsorenemies.com.

Widdicombe had published the following story:

Members of Fall Out Boy, who failed to get a Grammy nomination last week, are said to be blaming Pete Wentz’s relationship with Ashlee Simpson. “Grammy voters are fed up with Ashlee after she was caught lip-synching,” a pal tells OK! mag. “Her relationship with Pete has definitely affected public opinion of the band. The guys in FOB are furious – they think everything Ashlee touches is poison, and they really want her to stop touching Pete!”

Joe, who doesn’t typically respond to gossip, posted a response on his blog addressing the story which he calls “complete tabloid bullsh**.”

Joe writes:

This just irked me-.. We don’t have any ‘pals’ that gossip to the tabloids over our business. We also don’t blame a certain someone (ASHLEE) for our lack of a Grammy nod. Don’t believe the gossip columns out there. This ‘poisonous’ person that was mentioned is nothing short of awesome, and we fully back her. Everything in Camp FOB is all good.

‘Look-A-Like’ Ashlee Simpson

TV Guide Channel’s ‘Look-A-Like’ featured a style team making over Michelle Argyris took look just like Ashlee Simpson.

“As far as how much Michelle looks like Ashlee Simpson, to be totally honest, I’m a little bit skeptical at this point,” hair stylist Jeffrey Altenburg said. “She’s really, really pretty, and I’ve seen a couple of things that might work, but we’ll see. Hair and makeup can do some pretty cool things.”

Photographer Richard Sibbald added, “To be totally honest, when I first saw Michelle, I didn’t see Ashlee Simpson. It wasn’t until she smiled, then I could see okay, I’ve got something to work with.”

After it was all done, Michelle said, “My favorite part of the day was the photo shoot because it was fun and I love the music and I loved everyone clapping and they got me really into it. The most terrifying part of the day for me would be getting my eyebrows dyed, but it turned out really well and I ended up really liking it so it was good.”
