Ashlee Simpson cancels summer tour 'after careful consideration'

Peteandashlee Unlike her fellow songstresses Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera, both of whom toured into their second trimesters, 23-year-old Ashlee Simpson Wentz won’t be singing any on-stage duets with her baby-to-be.  Expecting a child this fall with husband Pete Wentz, Ashlee has announced that the summer tour which was planned to promote her new album Bittersweet World has been shelved — temporarily, at least.  In a statement issued by her rep, it was announced that "after careful consideration, Ashlee Simpson has decided to postpone her summer tour."  The statement continued,

She is committed to giving her fans the best show possible, and will be back better than ever and ready to rock in the future. 

The baby will be the first for the couple.

Yea perez and some other blogs said this about 3 days ago, before she confirmed it. They said her sales have been so bad, it’s not worth for her to go on tour. I liked some of her music from her new cd, but it has done really bad, so I’m not surprised she canceled her tour.

That’s a shame but understandable. Her album is really good so makes it doubly sad she can’t promote it. Her live performances in Europe and the talk shows in the US were good.
