Pop nymph Ashlee Simpson takes a swing with her black and white, artsy video for 'Bat for a Heart,' where she promises she is going to f--- you up. She's a gothic, punk rock ballerina.

The video (which she previewed a few months back), has a voyeuristic vibe, like you're watching Ash cavort and you're not really supposed to, while she strikes ballet poses and thrashes about.

She plays the part of sexpot and temptress with smeared, smoky eye makeup, dancing around on ballet toe shoes and filming herself, going in and out of focus.

We guess we're supposed to buy that Simpson is now an indie chanteuse. Did she and Skylar Grey do a pop swap and take each other's images and roles or something?
