Pop singer Ashlee Simpson is so fed up with how difficult her year (05) is becoming, she complained all about it to an audience in Chicago, Illinois.

The PIECES OF ME singer - younger sister of JESSICA SIMPSON - was jeered by 72,000 American football fans during a performance in Miami, Florida, in January (05), and was widely criticised for lip-synching on US TV show SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE in late 2004.

Ashlee, 20, told the crowd: "I've had a tough year. But, I've learned a lot of lessons and the most important is that I don't have to be perfect.

"Here I am, as perfect as I'm ever gonna be, you'll see, love me for me."
