Jessica Simpson is an American pop singer, fashion designer and a TV personality. The Texan started expressing her passion and talent for music from an early age.
When Simpson was 12 years she auditioned for Disney’s The New Mickey Mouse Club, a TV show that helped launch the careers of many of today’s pop stars such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and others. The show divided the contestants into groups where vocal and acting coaches worked with them in order to improve their performance. Simpson was put in the same group as Justin Timberlake and she made it to the final 13 candidates. However, when she got on stage she completely choked and forgot everything. Later, Simpson stated that she felt really intimidated by the impressive vocal performances of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera whom she lost her spot to.
Before Simpson gave birth to her first child in 2012, she made a deal with Weight Watchers which involved her following their diet plan in order to lose her 70 pounds of baby weight. The singer appeared in a Weight Watchers TV Commercial that same year but announced she would stop using the company’s diet plan due to her being pregnant again. Simpson gave birth to her second child in 2013.
Currently, Simpson is involved in the reality show ‘Fashion Star’ as a mentor of aspiring designers.
