Ashlee Simpson: 'Little Miss Obsessive'

By
Ashlee Simpson: 'Little Miss Obsessive'
Released on Monday, Sep 8 2008

Ashlee Simpson's love life may have blossomed in 2008, but her pop career has taken a nosedive. Despite enlisting Timbaland and N.E.R.D's Chad Hugo on production duties, her Bittersweet World LP has slumped in the charts, partly because lead single 'Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)' proved a bit too kooky for daytime radio and her traditional fanbase.

In an attempt to bump up the album's sales tally, Mrs. Simpson-Wentz has returned to her rockier roots for a duet with Plain White T's frontman Tom Higgenson. Featuring some confused Avril-style rants and plenty of impressive drum thuds, this sounds nothing like the new wave-inspired 'Outta'. Sadly, despite a surging power-pop chorus, 'Little Miss Obsessive' lacks the 'wow' factor needed to get people talking about Simpson's music - as opposed to her baby-making skills - again.
