Britney Spears is "trashy," Ashlee Simpson says.

Whether it was a Freudian slip or not, the newly engaged songstress definitely let her opinion of the recovering mother of two be known during a visit across the pond this week.

Appearing on the Nokia Green Room with fiance Pete Wentz, Ashlee recalled fielding a question about "having too many Britney Spears" (yes, the Britster is a slang term now).

"In an interview the other day, they asked me what I thought, ‘You’ve had one too many Britney Spears’ means," Ashlee says. "I was like, ‘What?’ And they said it means you’ve had one too many beers."

Without missing a beat, "I was like, ‘Oh, you’ve had one too many trashy girls!"

Ouch, Ash.

But the redheaded 23-year-old, falling into a fit of giggles, expressed remorse over the comment afterwards.

"I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I just said that!" Ashlee says. "It was really bad. I felt horrible."
