Ashlee Simpson sings briefly in Ybor City



Tbdashleesimpsona031008 Ashlee Simpson performed at a packed Honey Pot in Ybor City on Thursday night -- for about 10 minutes.

Hardly seems worth all the waiting, not to mention the $20 tickets. No wonder the crowd at the burlesque club was pretty ticked off when she left the stage shortly after 1 a.m.

Simpson was trying out songs from her upcoming album, Bittersweet World, which drops April 15. At least she did actually sing instead of lip-synch, and take a second to get a photo with the Honey Pot's owners (below).

Meanwhile, while she was en route to Tampa, Ashlee took time to blog on MySpace about rumors she was drunk during an interview at a DC radio station last week. She said that the DJ for the station was rude and immediately assumed because she had gotten a tattoo the night before, she must have been drinking.

"I was asked mostly personal questions which are never fun to be asked and therefore I giggled my way through it," she writes. "If you listen to other interviews I've done, you'd know I giggle a lot. ... I giggle when people ask me uncomfortable questions not knowing what to say or what else to do."

And here we thought it was from not understanding the questions in the first place.
