Ashlee Simpson takes blame for lip-syncing

NEW YORK, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Ashlee Simpson, caught lip-syncing on live TV, has owned up to the snafu after initially blaming her band for playing the wrong song.

Simpson took full responsiblity Sunday the episode on the previous night's segment of "Saturday Night Live," saying too much work had left her voice tired, said.


"I can't cancel something like 'SNL.' ... I'll hold my head high and say I think it was silly of me to do it, silly of me to blame the band, I was just so (expletive) embarrassed," Simpson wrote on her Web site.

Simpson's performance went awry when her voice boomed through the speakers while she stood with a microphone at her hips.

The 20-year-old entertainer was expecting to sing "Autobiography," but the song she performed earlier in the show, "Pieces of Me," complete with vocal tracks, began playing instead.

Simpson exited the stage, with the show abruptly cutting to a commercial.

At the end of the show, Simpson blamed the snafu on her band.

"I feel so bad," she said. "My band started playing the wrong song! And I didn't know what to do!" I'm sorry! It's live TV! Things happen! I'm sorry,!"
