Ashley Simpson is talented. Her old look or new look ..she looks great. All people do is talk s--- about celebs. One mistake and people backstab. Its pathetic. Ashley has a great career ahead of her. She's very sexy..very lovely. For every one hater theres one admirer.

I think Ashlee did the right thing, turning down Playboy. She shouldn't be posing nude just so that a bunch of old perverted men drull over her pictures.

You people really should stop hating. Who gives a damn about the amount of money Playboy offered, the really juicy bit is the fact that she turned it down. Why? Can't you people think anymore. Too much #&%@ing Celeb news.

Well, firstly, many of you are saying that playboy is a skank magazine. some may agree, but i disagree, that "skankiness" actually took hardwork and dedication. many of you may think that it is low to pose like they are, but ironically, it is very daring and takes confidence to put yourself for the world to see. it takes guts for ashlee to turn the offer down, but it also takes guts to accept it. stop judging all aspects of this situation, if you agree with it or dont, all aspects of this situation have a stand. my cat is shedding majorly, so i must go brush it with my delux 2000 brush. thank you. MEOW.

I really do think that Ashlee Simpson made the right choice.... Posing for playboy could ruin someones reputation and I think she does really well to keep herself safe and totally respects her body and wouldn't show it off just to make even 4 million dollars... I think she a a really positive choice most girls would look at it and think just about the money and what they can do with it but living your life and being happy isn't all about money its about you and what you feel is right for yourself and if that was her decision not to do playboy... I think its totally up to her and no one should bother her.... People are wayyy to nosy in celebrities lives leave them be let them make their own decisions!
