Jessica Simpson, a frequent Las Vegas visitor, is one of those talented types who can’t seem to catch a break. As a pop singer she was constantly compared to Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera – too voluptuous to be nice and not gritty enough to be naughty.
Her personal life has been the used as the source to create tabloid top sellers with pictures and stories of men who have, and who haven’t, spent time with her.
And now only months after settling into her single woman skin and stepping up to the country music mic, Simpson appears to be ending her foray into her musical roots. While she remains part of the Sony Music Group on the Epic label, Simpson is no longer involved with Sony Music Nashville. Lauren Auslander a former spokesperson for Simpson said, “She (Simpson) was on loan to Sony Nashville for her country album.”
Many fans believe that Simpson is a favorite target of the media and is often portrayed in a less than favorable light because of petty jealousy. In a recent interview, Rascal Flatts’ lead singer Gary Levox said Simpson “..is in a spot where whatever she does, they pick her apart. They need to just leave her alone and just let her sing.”
“She’s a wonderfully gifted singer,” added bassist Jay DeMarcus. “All the other stuff overshadows what she’s really about and it’s unfortunate, because there’s more to her there than just tabloid fodder.”
It could be Jessica Simpson will spend her time in the spotlight being the blonde everyone loves to hate. But with her talent, it’s more likely, Las Vegas Backstage Access believes, that she’ll find a way to rebound like blonde archetype Madonna than fall into the archives like Taylor Dayne.
