'''Jessica Ann Simpson''' (born July 10, 1980) is an American singer, actress, fashion designer and television personality (1999-present). Simpson has achieved many recording milestones, starred in several television shows, movies, and commercials, launched a line of hair and beauty products, and designed fragrances, shoes, and handbags for women. She has devoted time to philanthropic efforts including Operation Smile and a USO-hosted tour for troops stationed overseas. She started the Jessica Simpson Collection in 2005.

Much like Music/BritneySpears and Music/ChristinaAguilera, Simpson was linked with ''Series/TheMickeyMouseClub'' revival (though unlike them she failed the audition) and like them she [[DyeHard went blonde]] and launched her career as a bubblegum pop star. While she enjoyed a reasonably successful career in the late 90's and very early '00's, Simpson never reached the fame or sales of Spears or Aguilera.

What ''did'' make her a household name was not her music -- at least not directly -- but the 2003 reality series ''Series/NewlywedsNickAndJessica'' which depicted the married life of Simpson and her then husband NickLachey (member of BoyBand 98 Degrees.) The show displayed Simpson's [[TheDitz unconventional]] view of the world ("[[BluntMetaphorsTrauma Is this chicken]] I'm eating or is it fish?") and transformed her image from a lovable [[FollowTheLeader Britney clone]] to a lovable walking, talking DumbBlonde Joke. A ''famous'' DumbBlonde Joke.

Since the end of ''Newlyweds'' and the break up of her marriage to Lachey, Simpson has continued to alternate between her singing career and acting in films like ''Film/TheDukesOfHazzard''. She also has a mega successful clothing line, the Jessica Simpson collection, which is notable in that it is designed for women of all sizes, as opposed to runway models.

She is currently married to Eric Johnson. The couple have a daughter, Maxwell Drew, and son, Ace Knute. Her younger sister, Music/AshleeSimpson, is also an actress and pop singer.

!!This singer, actress, and television personality provides examples of:
* {{Aesop}}: "Fly"'s Aesop is that it's better to loves and lost then to have never loved at all.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: In the Creator/VH1 documentary ''Driven,'' some of the people closest to her mentioned getting a little frustrated that [[Music/BritneySpears Britney]] and [[Music/ChristinaAguilera Christina]] were more successful than her. Britney and Christina passed the audition for ''The Mickey Mouse Club'' when she didn't, and years later "...Baby One More Time" and "Genie In A Bottle" were released before "I Wanna Love You Forever."
* BrainlessBeauty / DumbBlonde: Her persona on ''Series/NewlywedsNickAndJessica''. Her actual intellectual capacity is debatable, but it's generally agreed that there was ''some'' intentional exaggeration when she saw the ratings boost.
* BreakUpSong: "Back To You" is one example.
* ChristianRock: Pre-mainstream success.
* ChristmasSongs: Two Christmas albums to date.
* CountryMusic: The genre she chose for a comeback attempt. Didn't quite turn out like she figured.
* CoverVersion: "Angels" and "Take My Breath Away" on In This Skin, and "Let Him Fly" on A Public Affair.
* TheDitz: At times especially in the reality show ''Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica'' .
* FollowYourHeart: In This Skin the song is this.
* EternallyPearlyWhiteTeeth
* FanGirl: Mentioned in Newlyweds how she was a big supporter of Louis Vuitton.
* ForbiddenFruit: Has a song called this, about this very same concept.
* {{Gasshole}}: Told about her truck-driver belch: "You burp as much as Drew (Nick's brother) farts!"
* GirlyGirl: Simply in relation to her sister.
* GreenEyedMonster: Mentioned in "Betcha She Don't Love You"
* HotterAndSexier: "Irresistible" was supposed to be this.
* IncrediblyLongNote: ''My Way Home''
* IntercourseWithYou: Of course a big feature of her "In This Skin" album, but also implied in many tracks in "Irresistible" like the title track in and "Forever In Your Eyes"
* LighterAndSofter: "In This Skin" is this to "Irresistible."
* PreachersKid: Used to sing in a church choir.
* PrettyInMink: Has worn some furs in appearances and in specials, such as an ermine wrap during the Nick and Jessica Christmas special.
* {{Sampling}}: "I Think I'm In Love" samples the chorus of "Jack and Diane" by John Cougar Mellencamp.
* SelfDeprecation: She's willing to poke fun at her own ditziness. When she hosted ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', she did a mock ad for "Tuna of the Dirt Brand Chicken" that gradually turned into more and more of a MindScrew.
* ShesGotLegs: Especially evident in ''Film/TheDukesOfHazzard'' movie, by which time TightsUnderShorts were no longer an issue.
* SillyLoveSongs: In This Skin is this concept.
* [[StageMom Stage Dad]]: Joe Simpson.
* SuppressedMammaries: When Jessica Simpson began her career as a Christian pop singer, her naturally large breasts were considered a liability rather than asset. She was asked by her record company to tape them down before performances because they did not want her being viewed as a sex symbol.
* VocalEvolution: She used to have a rather clear, fresh voice and technique, but between Irresistible and In This Skin something happened and she started to use a strange breathless technique, on her most vocally challenging album.
