Ashlee Simpson to perform at LAX

Jessica Simpson usually holds court when it comes to fame and attention inside her musical family.

But Saturday, Ashlee Simpson will attempt to steal a little bit of her big sister’s spotlight when she delivers a special live performance at LAX inside the Luxor.

Simpson is scheduled to perform her new song, “Outta My Head.” Chances are also good that boyfriend Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy will be in attendance as well. The two usually are attached at the hip when spotted in Las Vegas.
