Remember Ashlee Simpson?
Of course you do. She had a number one, triple platinum debut studio album titled “Autobiography“, a controversial (embarrassing) Saturday Night Live lip-sync fiasco, and she’s the younger sister of singer turned fashion mogul, Jessica Simpson.
A lot has changed since Simpson released her last album “BitterSweet World” back in 2008; she married Pete Wentz, had a child, Bronx Mowgli, 9, and then divorced Wentz in 2011.
Fast foreward to 2018, Simpson now sits pretty in a family full of music royalty, as she’s married to Evan Ross, the son of legend Diana Ross’.
Ross, 29, and Simpson, 33, not only share a two year old daughter together, Jagger Snow, but word on the street is that they also have an album coming out very soon.
The duo have been working on the project since spring 2016.
At a Swiffer Sweeper event back in 2016, Simpson revealed, “Evan and I are making an album! It’s been really fun writing music together.”
Throughout the past 24 months, Ross has been very keen, often sharing recording studio photos on social media.
On March 25, 2018, Simpson’s Father, Joe Simpson, shared a new photo of Ashlee on his Instagram page and said, “My little superstar is coming back!”
Along with the forthcoming album, Simpson and Ross are releasing a clothing line called “Jagger Snow“, a collaboration with Zadig and Voltaire, hitting stores such as Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s on May 23.
According to www.zadig-et-voltaire.com, Evan Ross (son of Diana Ross) and Ashlee Simpson are excited to debut “Jagger Snow,” a new line of unisex, easy-to-wear clothes. The collection, named after their little girl, Jagger Snow, has a spirit of free love and artistry, just like their relationship. Zadig&Voltaire FW18/19 is their first collaboration. The ten-piece collection is embellished with peace symbols and lyrics from their forthcoming duo album: “We don’t need permission to love,” “Like a bird you set me free,” and “I want to be a part of you.”
In other news, there are also rumors floating around that Simpson and Ross are shooting a reality show for E!
Both artists have been seen around Los Angeles and on Ross’ social media pages, which feature photos and videos of himself, Simpson, their family and friends with cameras and a production crew behind them on multiple occasions.
Simpson is no stranger to reality TV, she starred in two seasons of her own MTV reality series “The Ashlee Simpson Show” and on “Newlyweds“, which was Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson’s show, back in 2004 and 2005.
Some old school Simpson fans may be more than ready for her comeback, while others hope she never comes back. Ross’ fans will finally get their first taste of a full-length album.
Whether you’re ready or not, the duo is finding their way back into the spotlight with an album, an edgy (high-end) clothing line, and possibly a TV show; which we can only hope for more lip-sync and chicken of the sea moments.
Are you ready for Simpsons comeback? Or do you just not give a damn?
