Ashlee Talks About Her Wacky Video

Yesterday we gave you a taste of our exclusive interview with Ashlee Simpson, where she talked about how excited she is for her upcoming album and tour. She also gave us the inside scoop on what it was like to shoot the quirky video for that first single we can't stop singing and even revealed who designed the strait jacket she wears at the end. Here's more:

Molly: The first song is so much fun and the video is fun in a different way. It's a little bit dark — you talked about Salvador Dali and Being John Malkovich influences in it, but it's got kind of a different feel than the song does. Was it fun to make? Intense?

Ashlee: It was definitely intense. I think it took 46 hours pretty much to make. One day all I got to eat was a Subway sandwich and I was like man... I can't wait for tomorrow to go to Chili's! So it was definitely intense. And I think the great part of it was I got to have so many fun looks. It was great for everybody. Everybody got to be artistic on the shoot and we all got to do amazing, cool things. The coolest part was getting to be on the harness when I'm in the strait jacket. And my strait jacket was Vivienne Westwood, that was pretty cool!

To see more of what Ashlee had to say about her video and a bit on Britney, just

You know the concept was about the voices in your head... it's not necessarily me. I don't think that I would ever be carried off into an ambulance or anything like that. Funny how... uh... an idea is coming to real life I guess... no pun intended (laughs)! But it's definitely one of those things where I think people have all these things going on in their head that nobody knows about and that was kinda the idea of it. Like there's the naughty girl when I'm on the Rubik's cube. It was definitely from like 5 a.m. one day to 5 a.m. the next. You know like all night. And I have to say my mom stayed with me the whole time and was a trooper! I was like, "Wow Mom — you are cool!"

We loved having the opportunity to chat with Ashlee and got her feedback on some of your questions as well. If you're liking the video as much as we are, you can vote for Ashlee on TRL here. Also, don't forget to check back in for more tidbits to come about her favorite makeup, workout tips and more.

She sounds like Tila Tequila; I think the nose job's the culprit.

Yup, she's got new hair color. I did not like the video, at all.

Is it just me or does Ashlee sound like she's reeeaally young and not very verbose? I mean 'Wow mom you're cool" ???? Retarded interview.

She speaks as though she were a 12 year old girl. Develop a brain and some character for God's sake.

To be fair, I could care less about low IQ or not if the girl at least had some talent. But these days any Joe Schmo can photo-shop and lip sync their way into being a famous pop star.

Vivienne Westwood straitjacket! Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaahahaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaahahhahahahahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaa This is too much. But go on, Ashlee, please, do go on! (Molly, it's straitjacket, not straight jacket)

you mean, she had to work? She had to report on a video set and do something other than shop for more than 4 hours? Poor her. Child services, go bust those sweat shop masters, go imprison those abusers of innocent children, go arrest those workforce blood drainers!! Call the press, call the mailman! Someone apologize to Ms. Simpson for making her work!

I am kind of disapointed by this "interview." Where are all the questions we submitted??

ARTEMIS YOU ARE SOOOOO RIGHT!!! I thought she was totally ripping off Gwen Stefani.
Tnkrbelli Tnkrbelli 9 years
I love the video, her dad is a weirdo. And I don't think that her IQ is very high. ..and I will keep writing fragments about Ashlee Simpson :ROTFL: . She is definitely doing better with Pete by her side, rather than the "weirdo"(Papa Joe). But I read somewhere that he wants her to break up with Pete!!? What ever could be the reason? WELLLL he is in talks with her to do a reality tv show!!! Yes, the same story that nearly destroyed his elder daughters career and absolutely demolished her marriage (although she did that herself, let's not blame Joe for everything)! He wants men to vie for a date with her on tv.

Actually I love the song and really like the video. I had only listened to a couple of song from her before, but now I'm completely addicted to Outta My Head. I don't how how she might be but her song is great for me. You should give it a chance.

UMG, I thought that too... is it because us "normal" people eat chilis or subway. Riiiiight...
UMG UMG 9 years
Anyone else wonder if she is quietly shilling for subway and chili's? Those were two really specific mentions, no?

Ashlee who?

Instead of trying to sound interesting by pretending she is influenced by Salvador Dali and Being John Malkowich, why doesn't she just admit that her video and her "new" sound are complete Gwen Stefani rip offs? I am surprised that you did not question her on this point, because whenever I see her new video, I just think of Gwen's Alice in Wonderland video - which of course was far cooler than Ashlee can ever dream of becoming!

I don't think the song is that terrible. I like it, but I think I will easily get sick of it if they play it to death on the radio. The video was cool - I like the concept, but wish they would've thrown even more surrealist weird imagery in it just to really bring it home that she's nuts rather than just having a bad dream.
