The Cure's Robert Smith's has spoken about his unlikely collaboration with Ashlee Simpson.
As previously reported, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz denied any involvement in putting the pair together, even though he is friends with Smith and is going out with Simpson.
Wentz said: "I doubt I had anything to do with it, 'cause they were friends since she was performing in Chicago. But I definitely only have good things to say about Ash–I think the collaboration could be great."
Speaking of the collaboration, Smith denied it would be taking place this year, reports MTV News.
"I would be hugely surprised if I end up working with Ashlee this year, but I haven't ruled it out," he said. "I went to see her in Chicago… I was impressed. The fact is, when she got ontage and sang she was really good."
Simpson is also known to be working with Keane's Tim Rice Oxley, Chad Hugo from the Neptunes, and John Legend.
Interesting. Very interesting.
