This was the original thread.

I said that people would continue to remember this and bring it up, and sure as shit, look what happened:

Ashlee Simpson Booed at Orange Bowl

quote:
Simpson was among a trio of halftime performers Tuesday night in a game that saw Southern California overwhelm Oklahoma 55-19. The camera cut away from her face as the booing began.

The negative vocal reaction came months after Simpson's performance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," which revealed she used background vocal tracks. The mishap was later attributed to acid reflux.


I'd demand to collect my winnings but I didn't bet on this.

Oh - I thought the fans booed her because she didn't end her show with a nipple-flash!

On a related note - Seamus O'Reagan from Canada AM said about this, "You know, when you are booed by 70,000 fans, that's when you really need a happy pill." Ha! Canadian morning television advocating using drugs to increase happiness! To Arms! Erh, I mean - To druggists!

Maybe it's time for her to take a good long look in the mirror and ask "am I actually talented, or do I just have a famous sister?"

Jessica Simpson can sing. I don't like the image she portrays either, or the overt commercialization she is a part of, but you can't deny that she has a very good voice; like Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera (both of whom are out of her league, though).

Hot? Does "The dude looks like a lady" come to mind? Oh yes! She looks like a drag queen without the talent.

if you mean ashlee, than i wholeheartedly agree with that...i can't see why guys want her. she's butt ugly with that fake rat's nest of black hair, and that voice...every time i hear it, i just want to scream.

i think jessica's very pretty though, and i think she can sing. i do hate the "ohmahgod! like, is the chicken or fish" persona though. as my mom says, jessica simpson just sent years of feminism down the drain.

gah, Shyviolet, gah. Jessica doesn't use the Lord's name in vain. It's ohmigah! like, is the chicken or fish. See how much more acceptable that is?

And to each his/her own, but I prefer the "fake rat's nest of black hair" to peroxide blonde. You're right, Ashlee isn't "hot" by pop culture standards. This is a good thing in my view. "Hot" women disgust me.

Someone care to explain the "chicken or fish" reference to me?

And "disgust," Gir, isn't that a bit harsh?? Particularly as I'm having a bit of trouble seeing how Ashlee challenges the dominant beauty standards.

lol, yes it is!

i'm sorry to have offended you however, i didn't think jessica was pretty b/c pop culture told me to. i just do. perhaps i would find ashlee prettier if i didn't think that the black was such a harsh contrast to her skin and i thought her haircut suited her better. truth to be told, i generally prefer red or black hair...but on her, imo, it just doesn't work. of course, i also don't have a very high opinion of ashlee as an artist, and i think that's another thing that, imo, makes her ugly to me.

i don't pick the people i'm attracted to based on their "hotness", thank you. i've been teased many many times because my friends think my crushes are ugly. but to me, there was always something in those guys that made them beautiful to me. i realize you won't know who these people are, so bear with me.. in jimmy: intelligence; in jesse: the need to be mothered; in sean: sweetness and a good heart; in scott: a softer side that he kept hidden. by my high school's standards, all were ugly. to me, they were beautiful. of course, from time to time, i have liked a guy b/c everyone else said he was hot. those crushes never lasted though. the ones i ended up dating every time were the one i thought were beautiful but no one else did. for heaven's sakes, gir, i'm shallow...but i'm not THAT shallow. give me at least a little credit...

mmmkay...basically one day, jessica and nick were sitting on their sofa eating chicken of the sea from the can. and jessica looked at the can and said something along the lines of "is this chicken or fish that i have?" and nick was like "huh?" and she said "it says 'chicken of the sea'. so, do i have chicken or fish?'

this was on their show, "newlyweds," if you haven't already figured that out.

Thanks for the explanation about the chicken or fish reference. Alas, I missed every single episode of that *shakes head sadly*

I'll admit that as a vegetarian, I have no idea what "chicken of the sea" is, though I'd assume its seafood. Sort of a "fruit de la mer" thing.

it's a brand of tunafish. comes in a can and has a blond mermaid with a green tail on the label. at least, i think it's the one with the mermaid. it might be the one with charley the TUNA (w/ thanks to mr. magoo!) on the label. not totally sure b/c i don't eat seafood either (severely allergic).

That distant rumbling sound is PETA assembling their armies.

It was Charlie the Tuna.

Remember the (very) old commercials? Where Charlie would do something like put on an ascot, and the voiceover would say "Char-lie, StarKist doesn't want tuna with good taste, StarKist wants tuna that tastes good!"

I'll say this for Charlie, his stubborn misunderstanding of that last point kept him from the can.

I think it's kind of strange when commercials feature animals that want to be eaten.

oops...obviously i don't know my marine life!!! *blush* no, i don't know what commercials you're talking about. if they were before 1985...well, i didn't exist until then! if they were on 1990ish i might have seen them but don't remember..? 'course i don't watch much tv, so that might have something to do with it too!

thanks for correcting me!

i thought geritol was something you swallowed? or is it all purpose? anyhow, you're only 34 (i think i saw that in "babble 2005") so you're nowhere near needing geritol!

Jessica Simpson just ... bellows.

I'm surprised you like her, Hailey! She sure doesn't seem to behave like "First and foremost, Nick's wife". She seems like a snotty spoiled brat to me.

Aside, re: NippleGate. I'm too lazy to look for a thread about that, but Kimya Dawson is so hilarious I wanted to share:

quote:
so i was watching law and order all night, as you all know, and i looked at the clock and it said 11:59. so i said to my dad "let's watch the ball drop", and switched to the bullshit on mtv and luckily the countdown was already at 13 so we only watched for 15 seconds. because i only needed to see ashanti and jah rule jumping up and down for 2 seconds with funny hats and noisemakers to make the resolution that i definitely don't want to be a part of the music "business". so instead of just immediately switching back to, what i think i can now officially call, MY PROGRAM i decided to see for a sec what ol regis was up to. right when i put on that channel there was some lady in a funny hat jumping up and down with some kids in funny hats and she screamed into a microphone "WE MISS YOU DICK CLARK. WE LOVE DICK!!!"

we love dick.

i am going to carry signs outside the doors of the major networks that say things like "KLANBC" and "CBSS" because a sister can't ACCIDENTLY show a little tittie at a ball game, but a white woman can scream "WE LOVE DICK" right into the fragile ears of babies? and if you didn't quite get it, her use of WE implies SHE and THEY. and the only THEY around her are these children. what she was saying was not that SHE loves dick. but that SHE and THE CHILDREN love dick. what's "NAMBLA for her" called, NAWBLA? are they starting NAWBLA? did the christian right finally start a national NAWBLA chapter? and NAMGLA and NAWGLA? gays can't get married but a little dick between the team and the soccer mom is not just fine IT'S ENCOURAGED.


Hee!

Starkist is also the brand of the tainted tuna in the scandal during the Mulroney years.

Sorry, Charley, they lied. Bad tasting tuna DOES get to be Starkist.

Trivia: Broadway actor Herschel Bernardi was the voice of both Charley the Tuna and the "Ho Ho Ho" of the Jolly Green Giant. In the 1950s he was blacklisted in the 1950s for alleged communist ties.

Remember in the Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy (the book and the TV show, I don't think it was in the original radio series) how, at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, they're introduced to the dish of the day? He's specially bred to want to be eaten, and to be able to tell the customer himself how good he'll taste.
