The magazine's new editor agrees with the outrage,
and she included a note in an expanded letters section taking the singer to task for what she calls an "obvious" nose job.
"She was quoting chapter and verse about how crucial it is to love yourself as you are, etc.," Editor in Chief Joanna Coles wrote. "We're dazed and confused - and disappointed by her choice too!"
In the July cover story, Simpson helped a group of teenage girls make a mural that celebrated the female figure. "Everyone is made differently, and that's what makes us beautiful and unique," Simpson told the magazine. "I want girls to look in the mirror and feel confident."
In response to the editor giving so much space to the subject, Simpson's rep Rob Shuter said, "I'm sorry the new editor is using Ashlee to get publicity for her magazine."
