BIOGRAPHY

Jessica Simpson was bornon 10 July 1980 in Abilene, Texas, United States, American, is Singer, Actress. Jessica Simpson is an American singer, reality TV star, actress, and businesswoman who achieved fame following the release of her debut studio album, ‘Sweet Kisses’. Born to a Baptist minister, who gave her a purity ring at the age of 12, she initially established an "anti-sex appeal" image which put her in stark contrast to contemporary stars Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. However, unsatisfied with the 4 million worldwide sales of her debut album, Columbia Records changed her image drastically in her next album, ‘Irresistible’, which had her sing promiscuous songs and wear provocative clothing. Her new image failed to impress both fans and critics. In spite of that, following her marriage to Nick Lachey, her appearance in the MTV reality show ‘Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica’ and the release of her new album ‘In This Skin’ established her as a sex symbol. While this album eventually became her most successful work, her following albums and movies all failed commercially. Interestingly, she has been able to achieve success consistently as a businesswoman for her clothing line and accessories collection.
