My Humps Black Eyed Peas

It's hard to think about the music that came after 2000 and before 2010.

Filled with a seemingly endless collection of plastic, surface-level pop songs that served no purpose other than to dominate the radio and wriggle themselves into our eardrums, the first half of the 2000s was a special kind of terrible.

Ashlee Simpson

All you need to know.

Full Name: Ashlee Nicolle Simpson

Date of Birth: October 3, 1984

Born: Waco, TX

Occupation: Singer, songwriter, actress, reality personality

Status: Married to Evan Ross (2014)

Children: 2

She's the sister to another famous Simpson and wife of the son of a superstar mom. Ashlee Simpson is a singer-turned-reality star putting her life on display as she reemerges into the spotlight as a musical mom of two, devoted to her darling, Evan Ross. Here's a bit about the blonde beauty and why keeping it real makes her relatable.

The Simpson Singers

Pop music fans were impressed by the talent of Jessica Simpson when she first hit the scene. But her little sis had music in her blood too. Simpson was set to prove her older sister wasn't the only one in the family who could be famous. Out came Autobiography, Simpson's first album, released in 2004. The breakout single, "Pieces of Me" hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the top five and was a huge success. Simpson's sound was not as "pop" as her sister's – she was darker, grungier, and introspective. The contrast was perfect when it came to comparing the two, and Simpson could stand on her own as an artist. She followed up with several other albums over the years and is now back in the recording studio with her man, as seen on their reality show.

Ashlee + Evan

Simpson has been married to Evan Ross (son of Diana) since 2014. Together they have a daughter and Simpson has a son from her previous marriage to Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy. For those interested in the couple's lives, tune into E! to watch their reality show, Ashlee + Evan. They share special moments and music, and make memories right before our eyes. Let's hope their relationship doesn't wind up like her sister's did when Jess was married to boy bander Nick Lachey. Remember Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica? Reality television and marriages don't always mix.

Stylish Simpson

Simpson is fashion-forward, trend-setting, and always cool. No matter the occasion, Simpson is stylish, be it casual or classy. Here are some of Simpson's notable fashion moments:

Jessica Simpson is a goof ball, Evan Ross is a goof ball, and Ashlee and Eric Johnson are not happy!

A source tells Popdust exclusively.

"Ashlee loves that her sister and her husband get along, but she and Eric are starting to feel a little left out.

Because she and Eric are definitely the more serious of the two, when all four get together, it becomes like "Jessica and Evan show.'"

The quartet recently had dinner at Casa Vega, and Ashlee and Eric were relegated to audience status.

"Jessica and Evan love to banter and they love to top each others stories. They just kept getting louder and louder and everyone in the place was staring at them, but Jessica and Evan didn’t even notice. Either that or they were having so much fun to care!"

It's not that Eric and Ashlee are jealous or anything like that, they just wish they felt more included. It's getting to the point where Ashlee wants to swear off double dates!"


It’s baby # 2 for Ashlee Simpson - she and husband Evan Ross are expecting a little princess!

“We’re having a girl!” the 30 year-old told People Magazine.

Jessica Simpson’s little sis has known the sex of her baby since Thanksgiving, but kept her secret until now.

Ashlee married Evan, the 26 year-old son of legendary soul singer Diana Ross in August, before honeymooning in Bali. She is already mom to son Bronx Mowgli, 6, her only child with ex-husband Pete Wentz.

“I told him pretty early on,” Ashlee says of breaking the news to her first born. “And he wanted to have a sister, so he’s really excited! He’s got a little brother. Now he’s going to have a little sister!”

Pete has moved on very happily as well - he and Meagan Camper have a 5 month-old son, Saint Laslo.

Congrats to Ashlee and Evan!

Pete Wentz is opening up about the breakdown of his marriage to Ashlee Simpson, revealing the real reason the relationship ended.

The musician and Ashlee were married from 2008 to 2011, and have one son together - Bronx, six. According to Pete, he couldn't stand being "Mr Mom" and felt increasingly emasculated with the partnership - especially after his band Fall Out Boy took a break in 2010.

"I thought it was forever," he told Howard Stern. "My parents have been married, I think, 35 years. I don't really know. Forty years, this year, maybe? But no, I didn't. At the same time, we were both very young. Here's what it really was: At 31, we'd had all these great years as a band, and then we took time off, and I basically became Mr. Mom.

"I had the beard, the flannel shirt. I didn't know what my identity was. That factored in. When your identity is what you do, it's hard when you stop doing it," he continued.

Ummmm... ok.

"I think it was a combination of all these factors at once, including being too young. I think there's an important thing where you know how to fight, because you can fight with somebody and it's not the end of everything.

"But if you don't know how to have those arguments, then they become nuclear. And we were doing this all in the public eye, which as you know, it doesn't help, because you have people scrutinizing everything you do: 'He cut his hair—it's breakup hair!' It's like, 'What?! It's a haircut.'"

Pete and Ashlee still have 50/50 custody of their son, which works out well for them both.

"It's different because of our lifestyle. If I'm gone, sometimes he'll come out on the road with us. He really likes coming on tour. Or, sometimes he stays there. We work it out. We've actually figured out how to parent that way in a really good, healthy way. And, we can be friends."

With all due respect to Ashlee Simpson, she's not exactly Whitney Houston. Pete must have SERIOUS self-esteem issues!

Less than three months after tying the knot, Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross are reportedly expecting their first child together.

This is the first child for Ross and the second for Simpson, who already has a 6-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli, with ex-husband Pete Wentz.

The couple confirmed that they were trying for a baby last month, with Ross saying that he'd like

"As many [kids] as possible!

Can you imagine how amazing this baby is going to be? The talented, stylish Simpson sister as a mother, and the son of Diana Ross for a father. It's the ideal mix of celebrity parents, because they're cool and successful without being too crazily famous, like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

Watch out Blue Ivy and North West, because the Simpson-Ross baby is coming for you!
