She's had a rough year, but Ashlee Simpson is back in the saddle and ready to tackle the music industry again! Find out what she told Sindy about her new album, boys and her fashion style!

Sindy: First, I just wanted to congratulate you on the release of your second album!
Ashlee Simpson: Oh, thank you so much.

Sindy: So how is it different from your debut album, Autobiography?
Ashlee Simpson: Well, I feel like I'm at a different place in my life and went through a few different things. You know, this year was definitely a year full of highs and lows. So just going into the studio and writing about what I have been going through this year and finding myself, I feel that that is a little bit different on the record. I also have a bit more dance-y songs on this record.

Sindy: Cool. How did you decide on the title, I Am Me?
Ashlee Simpson: I wanted to call it I Am Me because no matter what I go through, I always remain who I am.

Sindy: You co-wrote all the songs on the album. Where did your inspiration come from?
Ashlee Simpson: My inspiration, whenever I write, is just like life experience. Be it a boyfriend, or any situation I go through, I write about.

Sindy: In your first single, Boyfriend, you sing about how you didn't steal someone's boyfriend. Is that based on a real-life incident?
Ashlee Simpson: No. It was just for fun. People have speculations that it's about a certain person, but it's not. It's just a song to have fun and I think every girl has been through that experience.

Sindy: What's your favorite track on the album?
Ashlee Simpson: Ohhhh... Mmmm I like the track Eyes Wide Open. It's a little funny because I thought there was a ghost in my house and everybody thought I was crazy but I wrote a song about it and about being scared.

Sindy: I was just wondering how your whole SNL experience has changed you - and what you have learned from it?
Ashlee Simpson: You know, it was an unfortunate situation that happened but at the end of the day it was cool because I got the second chance to go back. It felt so great redeeming myself. It was just something that was good for me as a person. It was definitely hard when it first happened but to be able to go back and conquer was cool.

Sindy: What can you tell us about your experience filming the movie Undiscovered?
Ashlee Simpson: That was fun. It was like an indie-style movie and my part was shot in two weeks. So it was a lot of work in a short amount of time but it was so much fun. I really enjoyed it. And hopefully I'll continue to do films. I like doing films, especially in that setting, like indie-style. So hopefully I'll do more of that before getting a big role.

Sindy: If you could star in a film with anyone, who would it be?
Ashlee Simpson: Drew Barrymore. I just love her. I think she's adorable, she's so cute. She's just a fun-loving person.

Sindy: Is there an artist you would like to collaborate with musically in the future?
Ashlee Simpson Well, my favorite singer is Aretha Franklin, but obviously that's not going to happen... but she's my favorite.
