Ashlee -- I Wasn't Wasted!

3/7/2008 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ashlee Simpson says she wasn't actually drunk during a recent radio interview, and blamed her slurred words and giggle fits on her busy schedule.

On her MySpace blog, Ash says that it was "very upsetting to hear that people are saying that I was intoxicated ... I take my work very seriously and would never disrespect anyone." Lil' Simpson says she has had a "crazy hectic schedule" and somehow felt that she was going to be ambushed by the show's hosts.

As for forgetting the lyrics to her new song, well, we know that just runs in the family.

Madonna Won't Play at Her Own Hall of Fame Show


Madonna will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Monday night – but, unlike almost every other inductee over the last couple decades, she won't be performing.

FOX News reports that Madge has elected to let Iggy Pop, of all people, "serenade" her on her hits, and Justin Timberlake do the toasting honors, but there won't be any Material Girl in the mix. There's no word from her rep on why she's made this decision.

John Mellencamp and Leonard Cohen are amongst the other nominees.

Party Favors: Rihanna Finds Bone Marrow Donor for NYC Woman ... Esai Morales Cleared of Rape Accusations ... Jay-Z Hip-Hops the Obama Train


A leukemia patient with just weeks to live has found a bone marrow donor with the help of Rihanna, reports People. Lisa Gershowitz Flynn was given four to six weeks to find a transplant source, and Rihanna helped publicize her cause. ... Rape charges against Esai Morales have been dropped after the LA D.A couldn't find any reason to bring them, reports the New York Post. Morales was never arrested or, according to his lawyer, interviewed by police. ... Jay-Z is the latest celeb to get on the Obamawagon, lending his voice to a "robo-call" for the Ohio primary, says HipHop4Prez. Didn't work so well, evidently, but maybe Ohio simply isn't Jigga country.

Would someone please tell me how on Earth that hack Madonna is being elected into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame? Is it all about sales now? The only talent that woman ever had was the ability to look good to some blonde-obsessed teenagers in a video. I'm so glad I visited the place before they started to slime it up with talentless pop stars. It's a hall of fame for musicians and songwriters, not a hall of video vixens. But there she will be next to the greats. The RnR Hall of Fame now has all the credibility of the Hollywood Walk of Fame where all you have to do is pay off the city to get a star. This is horrific. What next? Mariah Carey?

WTF...Madonna doesn't do rock & roll???? Why don't they start calling it the "pop hall of fame" if they want to honor people like madonna and have timberlake present (he's no rocker either).

I would have to assume alot of people don't actually watch the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame show. They induct different genres of music including pop. Not all inductee's have performed over the years. Michael Jackson didn't peform and I'll point out he's also pop. Pop artists deserve to be inducted also. Get a life people. It's just music.

You know-I don't live too awful far from the Rock-N-Roll hall of fame, and have been meaning to take a drive over there for some time now.....And then I read something like this. NUmber one-Madonna isn't Rock-N-Roll!!! Why would she be inducted into the hall of fame??? Two, they have allowed disco and R&B performers in there also. IT'S THE ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME!!! AAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! They don't induct baseball players into the football hall of fame do they??? I hope ol' Iggy f'n unloads on this conceited scrunt. Madonna........Give me a break. She probably can't make the ceremony because she's in a third world country stealing some more children.

Ashlee is nothing but an immature little girl just like her sister. Jessica can act pretty stupid, also.

William Hung will probably get inducted next year....after all, he sold some albums, too. While Madonna is a brilliant self-promoter and business woman, she has very little talent. The RRHOF has totally lost it's credibility.
