Celebs That Ruined Their Careers Overnight

Ashlee Simpson

The younger sister of Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson saw her career come to a screeching halt on one fateful Saturday night. In 2004, the younger Simpson released her debut single, “Pieces of Me”. The single peaked at No. 5 on the charts, and her debut album — “Autobiography” — reached No. 1. Things appeared to be going very well for Simpson…

…until one catastrophic performance on Saturday Night Live. Simpson was caught lip-syncing during the ‘live’ performance and subsequently walked off stage as the network quickly cut to a commercial. Simpson has only had one other single break the top-20 since her SNL performance — and that was in 2005.
