I know, it’s not 2004, but color me a Jessica Simpson fan.
Yes, she’s still around, though these days, instead of reality show glimpses into her life, and teeny tiny bikinis and cowboy boots, Simpson is mostly seen publicly taking her lumps by way of magazine covers and gossip blogs.
Failed relationships, weight gain, pregnancy, all the easy shots.
But, I like an underdog, if we can even call her that. Fact is, while she may fly under the radar, Simpson was one of the first celebrity brands to break $1 billion in annual sales. Edible cosmetics, hair, handbags, shoes, perfume, and clothing. Her brand is affordable, widely-available and even, gasp, plus size!
So, when she drew snarky ire after being billed as a “Fashion Icon” for the upcoming reality show, Fashion Star, I had to disagree.
Most recently, you can find Miss Simpson naked and pregnant on the cover of Elle magazine.
Being that pregnant is hard, and I am forever grateful I didn’t have to spend my last trimester with 20 cameras tailing my very wide ass, but when does it stop?
You called her fat on television, and mocked unflattering upshots of her on stage, but now she’s almost a mom, does it stop then? Shouldn’t it stop then? Shouldn’t it just stop, period?
“At this point I think it’s safe to say Jessica Simpson is having sextuplets.” @hapinthecap
“Anyone else think Photoshop was working overtime on Jessica Simpson’s cover photo?!” @oldies957
“Here’s a pregnant Jessica Simpson posing nude for the April issue of Elle if posing nude means they de-jowled her head and slapped it on Demi Moore‘s body because it was cheaper than airbrushing out nacho cheese burns. Regardless, Jessica confirms she’s having a girl, but more importantly reveals I was right about all those times I said she’s a rib-fueled booze funnel.” TheSuperficial.com
If you asked me to name three Jessica Simpson songs, I couldn’t do it. But, she picks herself up after she falls, she’s a kick-ass entrepreneur, and sometimes, her jeans don’t fit quite right, and that’s the kind of woman I can relate to.
