Ashlee Simpson's Fans Offered Alternatives

Talk of ASHLEE SIMPSON's lip-syncing scandal has been revived after a group stepped forward to offer her fans "real" music in exchange for her debut album AUTOBIOGRAPHY.

New York's HOPE (HORRIFIED OBSERVERS OF PEDESTRIAN ENTERTAINMENT), is giving people who bought Simpson's album the chance to turn it in for what it calls "one of a higher entertainment quality".

Fans who bring the disc to New York's Knitting Factory can trade it in for one by ELVIS COSTELLO, THE RAMONES, X, JIMMY PAGE and ROBERT PLANT, ARETHA FRANKLIN, RAY CHARLES, THE GRATEFUL DEAD, JONI MITCHELL or BRIAN WILSON.

The 19-year-old singer faced huge embarrassment on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE last month (OCT04) when a pre-recorded version of her hit PIECES OF ME was played while she held her microphone at waist level. Her manager-father JOE insisted his daughter used the extra help because acid reflux disease had made her voice hoarse.
