Jessica Simpson

Biography

Jessica Simpson (born 10.7.1980) Jessica Simpson is an American singer who became famous in the 1990s. She starred with her then-husband Nick Lachey in a reality show titled Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.

Childhood: Jessica Simpson was born and raised in Texas. As a child she sang for her Baptist church and at the age of 12, she made it to the final auditions of the Mickey Mouse Club.

Jessica Simpson's younger sister is Ashlee Simpson, the well-known pop singer.

Simpson dropped out of J.J. Pearce High School, aged 16. At 18, she was signed to Columbia Records.

Early Musical Career: The debut single from Jessica Simpson was released in 2000. 'I Wanna Love You Forever' reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. She toured with the boy band 98 Degrees to promote the subsequent album, Sweet Kisses. Her future husband, Nick Lachey was a member of the band.

Helped by follow-up singles 'Where You Are' and 'I Think I'm In Love With You', the album went double platinum. Columbia's executives decided that, in order to reach the success of the likes of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, Simpson would have to make changes to her sound.

The follow-up album, Irresistible was a collection of more radio-friendly, up-tempo numbers and the lead single, also entitled 'Irresistible' became a hit for Simpson. The song reached number 15 on the Hot 100 and the album debuted at number six in the album chart in the US.

Career development: Jessica's debut movie appearance was in the role of Daisy Duke, for the remake of Dukes Of Hazzard. The film went to the top of the box office rankings in the US on the week of the release and eventually collected $110.5 million. It was less successful outside of the United States.

Simpson recorded a cover of Nancy Sinatra's 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin'' for the soundtrack and won a People's Choice Award for 'Favourite Song From A Movie' in 2006.

Jessica's second film was far less successful. Employee of the Month took $11.8 million on its first weekend. Her third film, Blonde Ambition was released in December 2007. It had a limited theatre release and went straight to DVD the next month.

In a return to her musical endeavours, Simpson left Columbia and signed to Epic Records. Her next album A Public Affair was released in 2006 and went in to the Billboard 200 chart at number five. The video for the single of the same name featured appearances from Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate, Christina Milian and Ryan Seacrest.

In 2006, she performed a tribute to Dolly Parton at the Kennedy Centre Awards. However, she made mistakes in the song and became flustered and tearful. Her performance was cut out of the subsequent CBS broadcast.

Private Life: Jessica Simpson was heavily criticized by 'The Resistance,' a Christian group that objected to her sexualised image of the video for 'These Boots Are Made For Walking.'

Aged 22, Simpson married Nick Lachey in October 2002 and the media made much of the fact that she was a virgin until her wedding night. Whilst married, the pair participated in MTV-screened reality TV show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. The couple announced that they were separating in November 2005 and Jessica filed for divorce the next month.

The couple sold their mansion to Malcom In the Middle star, Justin Berfield. The home was the one in which they filmed the Newlyweds. series.

Since divorcing Lachey, Simpson began dating John Mayer and attended Christina Aguilera's New Year's Eve party in 2006 but split in May 2007.

At 34, Jessica Simpson Is Living Her Best Life

Tags: Jessica Simpson

Happy birthday to Jessica Simpson, who is 34 this week! The 30s look good on her, though, and Simpson made sure to show off her look in a celebratory selfie. She posted the picture on her Instagram on the day of her birthday – Thursday, July 10. It’s a makeup-free selfie, presumably for the metaphorical resonance of the whole thing.

“And the sun sets on 33,” Simpson wrote along with the #flawless picture.

Carolinagirl7314: You have EVERYTHING? Sounds like you have about as much sense as Jessica does. Want some chicken from the sea? Jessica might be attractive, however, she has nothing at all above that. Her movies flop, her concerts dont draw money, she is nothing but a pretty face and tits. Hollywood already has tons of those, and most of them can count to 5. Jessica go work on the farm and get out of Hollywood.

I'm a huge fan of both Jessica and Nick. I have all the Newlyweds DVDs, and I see how much they both loved each other. I'm having a hard time excepting that she's going for a divorce. Has there been any marriage counsling? Marriage is so important, and it's a full-time job. I know that I don't know the true details, but it does seem that they're not trying to work at the problems.

I loved Nick and Jess on Newleyweds but even watching the show seemed all FAKE to me. I mean it was a reality show but cameras were around. Imagine how they were when cameras weren't around? So we just all assume "Oh, they seemed happy on the show" But again what do we know when cams weren't around? Noone files for a divorce like its fun & games. Its serious business. Obviously, she wasn't happy enough to even try marriage counseling and work it out. It sux this had to happen because they were like soul-mates but everything happens for a reason and again, we the fans only see whats going on in their lives when cameras are around..DONT FORGET THAT!

I 100% agree with these people that are saying finally that Jessica Simpson has challenged her morals and values.Personally I dont think that family has any that are worthwhile.Certainly not any that I myself would want to expose to my young daughter!She got what any woman would get from a man portraying herself as a sleeze on reality televison,in music videos,on live T.V.ect.Also I do not think they will get back together she seems much to selfish in all that money glitz and glamour. Her whole life is based on a price tag. she would have be woman enough (if he really did cheat) to make non selfish attemps to repair their relationship.You can in some cases if you really love someone like they professed to eachother alot get through a situation like that.I wish them both the best in their attemps to find true love.

Regarding Jessica Simpson:The Video is a very sexual & raunchy for how she portray's herself Saying She is a Christian, she started out being shy & clean but as we ALL know SEX in the Music & Movies Sells & the Pressure is on...MONEY TALKS, so her & her Pastor Dad sold Their Souls for her Career to Move up the Charts by the Form Of Sexing up her Image, all she has now become is another BIMBO in the Sex Industry A singing One at that.It is to Bad to see this Happen once again to youngMuscians & Movie Stars, But Our Societry only focuses on SEX & How you LOOK!!! Not How Talented you Are...God Does Move in Mysterious Way's Simpson supposelycalling her self a Christian her Morales are gone & has just Opened The Eye's of may People...WAKE UP AMERICA Before it is to LateSEE With Your Eye's & HEAR With Your EAR'S Start to Look around you because before you know it one Morning you will WAKE up to your FREDDOM GONE....
