Ashlee Simpson getting music itch
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz has revealed she is getting the "itch" to make more music.
The 25-year-old singer and actress - who has been playing troubled Violet Foster in Melrose Place - told how she wants to start work on a new album.
Ashlee revealed: "I'm going to start writing again for a fourth album. At the moment it's been a little bizarre but I'm definitely going to start to write again because I'm getting that itch."
The former reality TV star - who is younger sister of Jessica Simpson and married to rocker Pete Wentz, with whome she has 15-month-old son Bronx Mowgli - revealed she is inspired by Joan Jett and Chrissie Hynde, but says Pete's band and record label are influencing what she listens to at the moment.
She explained: "I'm listening to The Phoenix record which is good, and whatever my husband listens to, all the bands he's signing are good too."
Ashlee will be appearing in Melrose Place on Fiver, but her character has since been axed from the show in the US.
This is not the end of her acting career though, as Ashlee is looking for different roles.
She said: "I am going to continue to do music but, you know, I'd like to do a role that's completely opposite of what I'm playing now - like comedy."
:: Melrose Place continues on Wednesdays on Fiver.
