Simpson Returns To The Stage After Media Taunts

JESSICA SIMPSON donned skin-tight leather trousers and blasted criticism of her weight gain during her first performance since the media mocked her fuller figure. The singer made headlines after she was pictured looking notably curvier on-stage at a concert in Pembroke Pines, Florida on Sunday (25Jan09).
The photos prompted criticism of her weight gain - and the star's sister Ashlee branded the media attention "embarrassing and belittling" in an angry rant on her blog.
But stepping to the stage again, Simpson seemed to take the controversy in her stride - strutting across the stage in black leather trousers as she opened for Rascal Flatts in Charlottesville, Virginia on Thursday (29Jan09).
She told the crowd: "I feel like in our world today we focus on so many things that are completely pointless. Please remember, no matter what you go through in life, somebody else might have it harder. So just appreciate."
And although the Irresistible singer avoided directly referencing her weight gain, she did thank fans for getting behind her.
She announced at the end of her set: "Thank you for your support. Stay positive, and pray out loud! I love you guys, good night."
