Simpson-Wentz, who is the younger sister of pop singer Jessica Simpson, rose to prominence in mid-2004 through the success of her number-one debut album Autobiography and the accompanying reality series The Ashlee Simpson Show. Simpson received widespread criticism when she used a pre-recorded vocal track on Saturday Night Live in October 2004. Following a North American concert tour and a film appearance, Simpson released a second number-one album, I Am Me, in October 2005. Her third album, Bittersweet World, was released in April 2008. The following month, she married musician Pete Wentz and announced that they were expecting a child. On November 20, 2008, Simpson-Wentz gave birth to their son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz. She was recently cast as Violet Foster, a small town girl in The CW's Melrose Place, a revamp of the '90s drama of the same name. Her first three albums have sold over 8 million copies worldwide.
Simpson has described the album as having some influences from '80s music while still incorporating some pop/rock. She intends to go on tour to support the album. Its second single, "Little Miss Obsessive", was released in March 2008.
Bittersweet World was released in the U.S. on April 22, 2008. Reviews for the album were characterized as mixed. A collection of tops designed by Simpson was launched by the clothing retailer Wet Seal on April 22, in connection with the album's release.
Simpson began appearing in commercials for Canadian retailer Zellers to promote their independent clothing line, Request, in mid-2008.
Simpson is scheduled for a television return in the acting role of Violet Foster in Melrose Place, the CW's revamp of the '90s series Melrose Place. She is on hiatus with her music career, after the birth of her son.
