We feel bad for some celebrity siblings. They obviously want fame and fortune as much as their brothers and sisters but, for whatever reason, they are never able to get it. Maybe they just don’t have what it takes to be an international superstar. We have to give them some credit though – it doesn’t stop them from lusting after it and we personally like that kind of tenacity (in most cases – not all). Here are 7 celebrity siblings who tried to make it happen and failed. Now they’re stuck living in their more successful sisters’ shadows. That’s gotta be a tough life!
7. Ashlee Simpson
When she was younger, Ashlee Simpson wasn’t happy about living in her older sister Jessica’s shadow. She even wrote a song “Shadow” about the experience. When she first shot to fame in 2004, she really tried to differentiate herself from her older sis by dying her hair dark brown and releasing angry and sexually suggestive music. For a brief period, she really did seem to come out of Jessica’s shadow. Unfortunately, it didn’t last. The music thing didn’t really happen for her; however, Jessica is doing well, with her retail empire that is worth $1 billion.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
