New redhead Ashlee Simpson wants to get two things straight — she doesn’t dye her hair to be different from her sister, Jessica Simpson, and she loves her dad.
"He’s so awesome. I’m lucky because he truly does care about me, and some people would be after money or this or that," Simpson says. Her father and manager, Joe Simpson, is rumored to be controlling when it comes to his daughters’ personal and professional lives. But his youngest says not so! "He’s actually one of my really good friends," Ashlee says. "People really have the wrong idea about him."
Ashlee sat down with E!’s The Daily 10, where she was also eager to gush about her boyfriend, Fallout Boy’s Pete Wentz. In case anyone was wondering, the couple is still going strong. "He’s an awesome, supportive boyfriend and we both give each other honest opinions so that’s cool. That’s all I could ever ask for," she says.
Given all the chaos surrounding Britney Spears, it’s only natural that we wanted to know how Ashlee handles the media frenzy. "It’s frustrating if someone is outside Starbucks when you’re getting a coffee, or at the grocery store when you’re in your pajamas," she says. "I’ve definitely had moments where I’m like, ‘Ah, get out of my face!’"
