Three Cheers for Ashlee Simpson

Sometimes empowerment comes from the most unlikely corners. Who'd have thought that Ashlee Simpson would have so much to say about the absurdity and indignity of a woman's body making headlines?

While the rags focus on Jessica Simpson's recent weight gain, the real story is these Ashlee Simpson quotes on Yahoo. In a shockingly literate and spot-on collection of ideas shared on Yahoo's Movie News and Gossip, pop starlet Ashlee Simpson-Wentz defended her sister, the notoriously sexy siren Jessica Simpson, and all women with this:

"A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman's weight or figure as a headline on Fox News."

If you haven't read the rest already, you really oughtta. It's not everyday that a woman steps out from inside the machine to rail against it. Way to go Ashlee!

I'm heading to iTunes to hope that her empowered ideas translate to her music.

Fingers crossed!
