Grab the nearest paper bag you can find and start hyperventilating, because we may have a majorly amazing breakthrough in the mystery of Ashlee Simpson‘s long-awaited fourth studio album.
There’s a possibility that the talented Simpson sister is working with Linda Perry. The rumor stems from this twitpic of Ashlee listening to some jams, which one of her three remaining stans managed to figure out was most probably taken from inside of what looks like LP’s recording studio.
Also adding fuel to the fire is the above photo of the pair posing together, which was taken at some charity event in May. They look pretty chummy to me, and we all know that Linda loves getting close to her collaborators.
Sometimes, too close…
Now, just in case your fragile memory has forgotten who Linda Perry is, homegirl has worked with Pink, Christina Aguilera (“you are bootiful, no matter wot thay say”), Alicia Keys, and even Kween Kelly Osbourne (“One Word” still slays your faves). However, if true, Ash will obviously be her most divine collaboration to date.
In other Smashlee Simpson music news, the “Pieces of Me” songstress recently spoke about her new album to Nylon last month at a launch party for a cell phone.
“I was actually playing a couple of tracks for my friends tonight!” Godlee said when asked if she had ditched music for good. “No, I haven’t given up. I feel bad to even talk about it because everyone’s going to be like, “Wait, what! When?” But, needless to say, I’m really proud of the sounds and I’m really excited for it to be an artistic venture. The sound is a little soulful, a little electronic.”
She added, “I just want the record to speak for itself and it definitely is an emotional one. So I’m just doing that.”
Wow. Sounds to me that Stripped and Missundaztood will soon become irrelevant. Oh well, they had a nice run.
Last but not least, if you needed another reason to be hyped up about Simpson’s stunning comeback, she’s also returning to acting with a role alongside Elijah Wood and Matt Dillon in a movie about white supremacist meth heads.
When ya faves gon’ dew it?
