Ashlee Milks Baby To Hawk New Album

by (@katespencer)

Blergh. Clearly, we’re going to have to sit through months of Ashlee Simpson awkwardly dancing around the baby issue with vague comments about the status of her uterus. On the Today Show this morning, the singer told Matt Lauer that “only time will tell” if she’s pregnant and that she’s “giving birth” to her album, Bittersweet World. Clearly Papa Simpson has coached Ashlee on the whole “baby buzz means album buzz” thing, because no one was paying attention to what Ashlee was putting out before her baby belly came into question. And while we’re being cranky we want to point out that giant, 100 carat engagement rings don’t exist in a bittersweet world. How about changing the album title to something like Really Effing Lucky? Harumph!
