Ashlee Simpson Defends Jessica
The younger Simpson is upset at headlines about her sisters weight
Ashlee Simpson has jumped to the defence of her big sister Jessica after reports said she had put on weight.
Recent photos showed popstar and sometime actress Jess looking noticeably larger than in previous years. Ash wrote on her blog:
"I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister's weight. A week after the inauguration 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."
The angry singer- who is married to Fallout Boy star Pete Wentz- continued:
"All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard.
How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now can we focus on the things that really matter."
Well said Ashlee. Well said.
