Jessica Simpson booking
Disproving the idea that a basic grasp of general knowledge, in fact, any kind of knowledge, is a
prerequisite to becoming a world celebrity, Jessica Simpson was the US intellectual equivalent of Jade
Goody. But what she lacked in brain-power, the ‘Newlyweds’ star made up with her sheer persistence
to be a pop star.
Jessica learnt to sing in the local Baptist church choir and her Christian/Country roots would form a
continual thread throughout her career. She hoped to launch her professional career by joining ‘The
Mickey Mouse Club’ (the launch pad for her more successful rivals, Britney Spears and Christina
Aguilera), but the 12-year-old was rejected. Disappointed but undaunted, Simpson continued to sing in
the Christian music circuit after being discovered by a small music label while performing at church
camp. With her father as her manager and her mother as her stylist, Simpson eventually signed with
Sony and toured with popular boy bands during the late 1990s. She released her first album, ‘Sweet
Kisses’, in 1999 and her second, ‘Irresistible’, including the hit single ‘I Wanna Love You Forever’, in
2001. Success for Simpson remained just out of reach, however. Her albums received a somewhat
lukewarm response and were eclipsed by the enormous success of pop contemporaries Britney
Spears and Christina Aguilera.
It wasn’t until after she married 98° crooner Nick Lachey and starred in MTV’s reality show
‘Newlyweds’ that Simpson’s career took off. The show followed the couple around for their first year of
marriage (and then their second), providing the insatiable audience with a peek at their glamorous and
mundane world. Boosted by the success of the show, Simpson’s third album, ‘In This Skin’, was rereleased in 2004, becoming a huge hit among MTV viewers. That year, the couple also produced ‘The
Nick and Jessica Variety Hour’ on ABC and enjoyed a successful turn as hosts of ‘Saturday Night
Live’. Simpson soon turned to acting with a leading role in ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ (2005), the big screen
remake of the popular television series. By the end of that same year, Simpson and Lachey filed for
divorce. Her career also seemed to flounder, appearing opposite comedian Dane Cook in the
lacklustre comedy ‘Employee of the Month’ (2006) and receiving little notice for her next album ‘A
Public Affair’ (2006).
Returning to her love of country music, Simpson recorded ‘Do You Know’ (2008). The album made it
into the top five of Billboard’s album charts. She co-wrote many of the songs for the album, which
featured a duet with Dolly Parton on the title track. Simpson is now working on a new reality show
entitled ‘The Price of Beauty’, which will explore beauty treatments, fashions, and fads. Her last
relationship with American footballer Tony Romo ended after his career suffered and even President
Bush blamed Simpson, calling the decline in his fortunes, the “Jessica Jinx”.
In 2010, Jessica released a greatest hits album ‘Playlist: The Very Best of Jessica Simpson’, along
with a Christmas album which was released in November of that year. While Simpson may not have
been as successful as the likes of Britney and Christina in her music career, the star has developed a
hugely popular clothing empire. In fact, the Jessica Simpson Collection is on track to become the first
celebrity fashion line to generate more than a billion dollars in annual sales. Simpson’s mother is the
company’s co-creative director. She has also found love again and is set to marry former NFL player
Eric Johnson. Simpson told Women’s Wear Daily in 2011 that the pair may opt for a low-key ceremony
when they tie the knot as they have both been married before. Simpson also revealed that she is
planning to “part design” her own wedding gown.
In 2011, the star said she has spoken to the makers of the US X Factor about being a judge on the
show. The singer and fashion designer said it “would be a lot of fun” and suggested that mentoring upand-coming singers is something she might like to do.However, this job was given to Nicole
Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls fame. Jessica did work as a mentor on NBC’s new reality show
‘Fashion Star’ with Elle McPherson. The singer appeared on the show in July 2011 alongside Christina
