After Hacking Her Nose Off, Ashlee Simpson Made Some New Music

Now here's a broad we haven't heard much from lately. Ashlee Simpson's new single, "Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya)" was thrown up on iTunes today. Hu-zoo! As a testament to Ashlee's true originality and staunch punk ethos, the song was produced by Timbaland. (See, haters? Never let it be said he'll whore himself out to just any old hasbeen!) The video for "Outta My Head" is set to premiere on Yahoo Music December 19.

Even more disturbing than the since-debunked rumor that The Cure's Robert Smith would be working on the singer's third album is the fact that Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley penned a track for Trashlee.

In an interview with Billboard, the pop bimbo revealed her influences for the new record: "One of my favorite artists is Salvador Dali. You'll see a little bit of that surrealism in it. There's a bit of Being John Malkovich in there too." Salvador Dali? That's kinda deep, Ash.

Hey, maybe the next time she goes to see her plastic surgeon, she'll ask him to make her look like this:

    Dali was fond of painting severed noses, so...

    It's a great song.

    Oh, and fuck Kylie.

    Like the song, and am finding the reference of Dali somewhat hi-fucking-larious and completely intriguing.

    With every release this bitch makes Pia Zadora seem more and more like a musical innovator.

    I actually have 2 Pia Zadora albums. Mind you, they were purchased for the producers and songwriters who worked on the album.

    Moog, suddenly there's a method to Ashlee's whims.

    NumbFD, ho!

    TT, nice nickname. I get royalties.

    Adem, there are many sides to Ashlee we're not privy to, it seems.

    Jump!, I always forget she had an actual hit with "Pieces of Me." That was actually a good song, too!

    El Marv, yes, that's the same excuse I give for my Liza Minelli album -- I bought it for the Pet Shop Boys!!! Which actually sounds even worse...

    Is it bad that I really really liked LaLa? And Shadow? But continue to staunchly hate Ashlee?

    My God that Ashley song sound like something by Toni Basil. But what does it say that Toni seems like Marie Curie next to Ashley?

    and of course, I got the Liza album for the same reason (Reasons). It actually wasn't that bad.

    I do have to say that the new Ashlee looks much better than the version 1.0.
