2008 seems to have younger Simpson sister, Ashlee, leading a fresh life with the release of her new album ‘Bittersweet Life’ set for April, a hot new red ‘do and being constantly accompanied by beau/Fall Out Boy musician Pete Wentz. Makes us wonder if her album title is quite the paradox doesn’t it? Bittersweet life? more like SWEET!

The young popstar recently sat down and answered some questions for ‘The Dishrag’, concerning her new ink, dye and her diet.

DR: Tell us about your new tatt.
Ashlee: “It’s a peony. It’s a flower and my little star is in it too. And it was my last tattoo. I love it. It was really bold. I’m proud of it. I like it [laughs].”

DR: Why’d you dye your hair red?
Ashlee: “I changed to red, gosh, probably four months ago now and, um, I just wanted to. I’m one of those persons, one of those people that I’ll wake up and go, ‘My God, today I’m dying my hair red [laughs]! And I’ve never had [red hair] so I’m doing it. And I do it. You know, luckily I can pull off all types of hair colors so, I like the red. I’m sticking to it [laughs].

DR: You look like you’re in great shape. Do you work out?
Ashlee: “I don’t really work out. I’ll get on the treadmill every now and then. But whenever I’m on tour, any time I’m playing a show, I’m jumping around so much and dancing around so much and, um, you know what, if I’m sitting around at home, I’ll go on walks outside and stuff. You know it’s hard to be in the gym ’cause it’s so boring. I’d rather be outside doing something kind of like dancing around doing something without really thinking about it [laughs] and, um, as far as eating and stuff, I eat pizza and pasta and whatever I want, just in moderation.”

DR: You don’t have to watch what you eat? You don’t have to be healthy?
Ashlee: “I don’t. I really don’t. I have a good metabolism [laughs] and I think that’s the good thing about it. I allow myself to eat those things. I don’t like pig out on it. I don’t go like, ‘Finally I can get to eat that.’ I think that it’s all a mind game. If you don’t play that mind game, then you’re just fine [laughs], you’re like, ‘I’m not allowed to eat that,’ then all you want to do is go eat it. So just don’t put that.”

Ashlee’s third studio album ‘Bittersweet World’ is due in our stores mid-April, and contains Ashlee’s 2 most recent hit singles the dance-y and mental ‘Outta My Head’ and the soft, sad and sweet ballad of ‘Little Miss Obsessive’.
