Ashlee to Playboy: No Thanks!

6/27/2006 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Ashlee Simpson has turned down a $4 million offer to pose for Playboy.

Ashlee Simpson
In Touch Weekly first reported the offer, and said the pop star was considering it. TMZ spoke with Rob Shuter, Ashlee's publicist, who confirmed that Ashlee did indeed receive an offer to pose in the legendary men's mag -- but turned it down.

A source close to Ashlee told TMZ the offer was big -- $4 million to be exact.

A newly glammed Simpson is currently on tour promoting her recent album, "I Am Me."

LoL!!! Man I have so much to say thats it wont even come out in my writing.. But I will say this, Horray ashlee for turning that down!!! She will gain a lot of respect for doing that. Thats totally sick to be willing to pay someone 4 million just to expose their bodies for all of these sick men and their perverted needs. There are way better things Hef can do with that money!

People need to get over her "transformation." I have a lot of respect for her for not accepting this offer. Sure, $4 million is a lot of money. In fact, it's a !%$& load of money, but to her, her self-respect obiously means a lot more than any amount of money. Playboy magazine is nothing but a magazine that exploits women. Im not a fan of Ashlee, but i do admire what she did now.

I think it's very disturbing how many people here label men and women who are comfortable with their sexuality and sexual desires as "perverts" and "sluts", respectively. Sex should be openly celebrated and embraced by all levels of society, and only the outdated yet still somehow extremely powerful forces of religion are keeping it a taboo.

Religion is a vestigial thought process in the same way that the appendix is a vestigial organ. It was great back when we were all unevolved apes who didn't have the thought process to comprehend natural phenomena on a level other than "God did it." But science teaches us more and more about the way the world works every day, and God becomes more and more unnecessary.

Religion is generally harmless, but like an appendix, it occasionally rots and becomes dangerous. C'mon, society. It's time to have the surgery. Put up the Bible and go out and get fucking laid already.

Ashlee Simpson has had major work done. If playboy asked me to pose my armpit hairs for no money at all, I'd do it. Ashlee is unfortunately not going to keep up with her path of stardum. She's going to be the next overnight blow out success. She is gonna be out in no time, and this offer should not have been turned down, any publicity, good, bad, profane, or naughty, is good publicity.

I think it was a good idea for Ashlee to say no to Playboy, no matter how much she was offered...to turn down that much money means that she has a strong character and won't do what she doesn't want to do...all Playboy is, is a bunch of women who walk around w/ barely any clothes on in public and make tons of money by posing nude for a bunch of sick-minded guys who look at them in the wrong way. We are not naturally supposed to show off our bodies like that and props to Ash for knowing where to draw the line.
