Did she do her little hoe-down dance?
2005-01-05 09:53:41 AM  
booed, hah
2005-01-05 09:54:58 AM  
this is not surprising ;-0

I think fans at any sporting event should be allowed to vote, right after the national anthem, on whether the singer lives or dies. I would clean up the entire music business.
2005-01-05 09:55:39 AM  
I loved the boos!

2005-01-05 09:55:46 AM  
Every now and then, you can score one for the good guys.
2005-01-05 09:56:08 AM  
I guess Trace Adkins would come in a close third then... that guy sucks...
2005-01-05 09:56:48 AM  
That's just so damn funny. The more stuff like this takes the wind out of the sails of manufactured pop superstars, the better.

I can handle Britney, Christina and even Ashlee's dimwitted sister having a productive career, but Ashlee is contrived with a capital "C". She should have just stayed on "7th Heaven", exclusively, where she could blend in with the rest of the insipid mediocrity that defines that show.
2005-01-05 09:56:50 AM  
Is that biatch still performing?

Lorne Michaels must be slipping.

I hope Reggie Bush "rushed it" after the game.

Attention whores don't really care what kind of attention they get, as long as somebody's looking at them.

Agreed. But I feel I should be the only one that decides if they live or die. Don't worry, I wont disappoint anyone!

That was the best Orange Bowl in memory.
2005-01-05 09:57:19 AM  
To quote Dave Barry, she sounded like she was "a hog being castrated by a fodue fork."
2005-01-05 09:57:45 AM  
There is hope for American Pop Culture
2005-01-05 09:57:54 AM  
I couldn't help but laugh. The whole halftime show was a joke--between not having any audio for Kelly Clarkson for about 16 bars, the really terrible job of lagging audio behind what the band was playing (nearly half a beat at points), laughable balance between the lead and backing vocals and hideous intonation throughout, I'm not surprised they booed. I would have.

I wonder how pissed the Orange Bowl was about how much money they wasted on that craptacular display.

2005-01-05 09:58:06 AM  
She should consider college.

/loved every brutal minute of it
2005-01-05 09:58:11 AM  
time for a career shift to the porn industry?
2005-01-05 09:58:15 AM  
Two clueless whores that need to be patrolling Fallujah using nothing but their wits.

Ouch...looks like her New Years' Resolution isn't working out...whatever it was...she certainly couldn't have wanted this.
2005-01-05 09:59:04 AM  
Do you think that the music industry will get the hint and just stop letting her perform in anyway shape or fashion?

Also how would you like to be the record exec that signed this trainwreck to a multi-album contract.
2005-01-05 09:59:12 AM  
haha love it
2005-01-05 09:59:19 AM  
Dear Ashlee,

Here's a check, now go away.

Your pal,
2005-01-05 09:59:29 AM  
/just waiting for her home sex tape to come out...
2005-01-05 09:59:30 AM  
I'm guessing one more ego-crippling performance will result in a sex tape getting "leaked". Most likely by her father.
2005-01-05 09:59:35 AM  
Anyone want a gmail invite? e-mail me if ya do!
2005-01-05 10:00:28 AM  
All three of them sounded like sh*&. I think the ear monitor was not working.
Ashlee's career seems to be running in fits and starts. Hopefully people will realize now that she has no talent and she will go away and take her retarded sister with her.

We hardly knew yee.
2005-01-05 10:00:51 AM  
I give her 6 months and she will be knocked up, in rehab and good friends with Courtney Love
2005-01-05 10:01:09 AM  
Somewhere there's a marketing department scratching their collective heads. "But she has a rebellious punk-rock image coupled with a well-researched pop sound! We should be hitting the Good Charlotte demographic like crazy! Why aren't her shirts selling at Hot Topic? This Orange Bowl thing is especially puzzling. Our research shows male football fans aged 16-32 AND 33-50 find Britney Spears attractive and are willing to watch her! What are we doing wrong!?!?"

Scary part is I bet that her Dad will be in the video.
2005-01-05 10:01:33 AM  
Remember a time when singers and musicians were chosen because of their talent, instead of their looks?

Niether do I.
2005-01-05 10:01:36 AM  
This thread is worthless without audio!
2005-01-05 10:02:05 AM  
They had to grab a backup mic as the one that Kelly Clarkson started out with didn't work. As a result, the vocals didn't run through all the smoke and mirrors that make those singers presentable in the least. Sound engineering was terrible.

\Ashlee still sux
2005-01-05 10:03:12 AM  
The big anarchy sign is hillarious. How dumb do they think we are?
2005-01-05 10:03:19 AM  
Fools! Like you have to have any sort of talent to be famous.

I'm sure if she was as surgified and plasticene as her sis, you guys wouldn't mind her presence as much.
2005-01-05 10:04:01 AM  
I call for a general strike until Ashlee Simpson vows to never sing in public again.
2005-01-05 10:04:03 AM  
I will agree that she sucked, but the audio did not help her and I would not be surprised if some of the fans were booing the overall production.

All of the performers had to take their earpieces out because the sound was not working. You could barely hear any of them.

That was one of the sorriest live performances I have ever seen.

The question is who sucked worse. Ashlee Simpson or OU.
2005-01-05 10:04:04 AM  
There are two things I have to say on the Simpson girls:

1. Ashlee really got the short straw on the looks as compared to her sister

2. Jessica is going to age very, very, very badly. Think Liz Tayler.
2005-01-05 10:04:06 AM  
Obviously, the problem was with the stage monitors. If she could have heard what she sounded like, she would have disappeared into the turf. Even my six year old could tell that she sucked.
2005-01-05 10:04:40 AM  
i was looking for o.j. to run on stage :(
2005-01-05 10:04:55 AM  
Rev. Skarekroe what's frightening is that music industry meetings really do sound that bad.

Was she live? I thought she was "singing live to tape" -- you know where they sing but there's a 2nd audio track played over on top of it to make it sound fuller. I kinda got that impression because she was out of sync with that piece of audio for a good portion of the song...and they seemed to turn it off towards the end, because the echo went away.

Also, she looked fat. Just me?
2005-01-05 10:05:12 AM  
Tick Tock Tick Tock

Her fame is ticking away. I hope she saved some of that cash for a nice double wide trailer and a pack of malbros
2005-01-05 10:05:17 AM  
I think they were SUPPOSED to have audio tracks, but for some reason they weren't able to play them, so they all had to actually sing. You could tell that all three were simply disgusted at the end.

I was really surprised they picked her. When are they going to realize we just aren't interested?!?

2005-01-05 10:06:40 AM  
Cut Ashlee some slack. Seriously. I don't know what musicians some of you think are good, but whoever they are, they won't be sounding too nice if they don't have good feedback up on stage. That goes for singer, guitar, anyone.
She still probably has very little talent, but she's not this bad. No one is.
2005-01-05 10:06:45 AM  
Oh and I Laughed Out Loud at that Anarchy symbol. WTF was that? Pick an image and go with it already.
2005-01-05 10:06:47 AM  
I was saying boo-urns.
