Pop star-turned-country singer Jessica Simpson is convinced she's made the right move by returning to her southern roots and leaving Los Angeles behind - because her fans had forgotten why she was famous.
Simpson left the Hollywood for a life away from the clicking cameras to live in her native Texas and pursue her country music career in Nashville, Tennessee.
She says, "I think people forgot that I actually work. That I don't just go to Starbucks and pump gas... I've tried to stay out of L.A. as much as possible."
And the singer insists the move has also helped her become more comfortable in her own skin.
She adds, "I think that without paparazzi you can be yourself, because you don't feel like they're trying to get the shot like you have gas or something - or like in that very moment you hate everybody."
