Simpson Blames Ballet For Image Crisis
ASHLEE SIMPSON blames her stint at ballet school for her pre-teen anorexia - as it was "all about image and weight" at an especially self-conscious age for young girls. The PIECES OF ME singer has turned her back on her former weight worries, but admits her family were shocked when they saw how thin she had become at New York's School Of American Ballet. She says, "That was a brief thing. As soon as my mom saw me she was like, 'We are going to eat steak and French fries!' "It's all about image and weight and you're talking about it all day. "But it's not anything I worry about anymore."
