Rock mama Ashlee Simpson-Wentz hit the web to give her two cents about recent headlines concerning her sister Jessica's weight.

"I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister's weight," Ashlee writes on her blog. "A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman's weight or figure."

Simpson-Wentz continued, blasting society's obsession with pin-thin frames. "All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard...How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure?"

At the end of her blog entry, Ashlee encouraged people to turn their attention to more pressing matters, writing, "Now can we focus on the things that really matter."

Jessica's former trainer, Harley Pasternak, defended Simpson's curves to "Extra," saying, "She has curves where a woman needs to have curves. We all go a little bit up and a little bit down. But she's healthy...I think if more people looked the way she looks now, the country would be a lot healthier."

Let "Extra" know what you think of Jessica's new look!
