Singer ASHLEE SIMPSON still dreams of becoming a ballerina and has installed a "ballet bar" in her home.

The pop star sibling of Jessica Simpson, 21, was once the youngest student ever accepted at the School Of American Ballet, but dropped out to concentrate on her singing career.

Now, she's planning to don her tutu again, after setting up a small dance studio in her Hollywood home.

She says, "I have to say I'm not very good. It's been a while, but it's fun."
