A helpful FrontBurnervian sends this NYT story before we got around to seeing it for ourselves. Ashlee Simpson appeared on the July issue of Marie Claire, “extolling the virtues of appreciating one’s body as it is–then she had a nose job.” The new editor of that women’s mag, Joanna Coles, says they received about 1,000 letter from angry readers, upset at the hypocrisy. Coles decided to expand the letters section to give readers room to vent. And Coles chimed in as well, expressing her disappointment with the younger Simpson.
It is indeed so disillusioning when a pop starlet says one thing yet does another–especially a wholesome, lip-synching, image-shifting, test-group-created, famous-sibling-having, “talented” singer like Ashlee.
