Jessica Simpson Undressed
Jessica Ann Simpson (born July 10, 1980) is an American pop music singer who rose to fame during the late-1990s. In the following decade, she starred with her then-husband Nick Lachey, in the MTV reality show Newlyweds, released her own line of Dessert Beauty and Dessert Treat beauty products and started a career as an actress while continuing her music career.
At the beginning of her career, Jessica gained public attention when she proclaimed she was saving herself till marriage. Her music videos at the time also displayed an innocent look with very few sexual innuendos, which garnered many praise from religious groups and conservative fans.
In January of 2002, Jessica Simpson posed in lingerie for Maxim Magazine. The publication also named her #18 in its May 2006 Hot 100 issue.
Her public image as a naive or ignorant person of low intelligence, fueled by her behavior on Newlyweds (which included questioning whether Chicken of the Sea tuna fish was chicken or fish, or refusing to eat buffalo wings because, as she stated, she did not eat buffalo), became fodder for ridicule and satire. In 2006 singer P!nk released a song called "Stupid Girls" which directly mocked Simpson; in particular a line, "Maybe if I act like that/flippin' my blonde hair back/push out my bra like that" is delivered spoken-word in a fashion that emulates a spoken word section of Simpsons "Walking" cover. In the music video P!nk also mocks the music video for "Walking". However, her mother claimed in an edition of Vanity Fair magazine that she has a 160 IQ.
Simpson and husband broke up in 2005 after a little over 3 years of marriage.
Simpson also brought attention to herself on March 16, 2006, when she declined an invitation by President George W. Bush to appear at a Republican fundraiser to represent Operation Smile, because that group is non-partisan, and because Simpson preferred to keep her political views private. The decision was seen as a "snub" by some, such as GOP leader John Boehner.
