OK, I can tell you guys are sick of the obscure indie rock posts. Let’s talk about pop shit. That’s what the Bloggie nom was for, right? (Thanks y’all!)
The second season of Ashlee Simpson’s reality series premieres this Wednesday and no one’s more excited than YOU (and maybe daddy Joe). MTV.com’s got a sneak preview of the premiere. Watch Ashlee’s voice get raspy and stomach get acidic in the hours leading up to her infamous SNL hoedown.

Speaking of SNL, shouldn’t they just rename it Amy Poehler Live already? NYC Poehlerheads can see her in the flesh at the MercyCAT Fundraiser on Wednesday. Not only does it benefit tsunami victims, but it might be a good time to fly your Paris Hilton sketch ideas by Horatio Sanz. You can download Saturday’s Update here. AMY: [To Rachel] Ludacris wants a Diet Snapple Root Beer.
TINA: I don’t think they make that.
AMY: Well she better find it cos it’s fo’ Ludacris.
For more funny girl talk, hit Aaron Gothamist’s interview with Samantha Bee. Halfway through, you’ll want to watch Samantha’s hilarious interview with Ed Heeney (not for the homonausic of heart).
