Ashlee SimpsonAshlee Simpson gets violent urges when people attack her big sister Jessica. The brunette singer admits she gets so angry she wants to lash out at people who criticize the 'Newlyweds' babe. She is quoted by Heat magazine as saying: "When I read somebody saying something about Jessica, I want to kick them."

Meanwhile, Ashlee recently admitted she struggled with an eating disorder as a child. The 'Boyfriend' singer said her parents took drastic action as soon as they noticed the problem. She revealed: "I was about 11-years-old, and people in the dance world were really concerned about their weight.

"But, as soon as my parents saw me really skinny, they put a steak in my mouth."

Ashlee now loves her womanly curves. She said: "I think I have good curves and they're womanly.

"I think it's sexy not to be a bone, and it's sad when people get too weight-conscious and don't look in the mirror and see themselves as being as beautiful as they are."
