YMMV / Jessica Simpson

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: How much of her stupidity is an act. Opinion ranges from 'entirely an act' to 'entirely real' with most holding that it is partly real but she plays it up somewhat.
  • Ear Worm: "With You" and "irresistible" are extremely catchy
  • Fountain of Memes
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Her 2008 comedy Major Movie Star was a #1 box office hit in Russia.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Jerry Seinfeld had a bit about Chicken of the Sea long before Jessica's run-in with it: "Are they afraid to tell us it's a fish? Afraid we won't understand?"
  • Never Live It Down:
    • Her statements about remaining a virgin till marriage and following through with it, at least on tv, has not been lived down...at all
    • And then there's "Chicken of the Sea".
    • The above-mentioned comment by her father about her bust size.
    • Her appearance in some unflattering mom jeans in early 2009 after a noticeable weight gain over the preceding winter. Her weight gain during her first pregnancy is also infamous, as she reportedly gained 70 lbs.
  • The Scrappy: Was one of the first of the early 00's pop princesses to...fall off the radar as such. Just after Mandy Moore except Mandy Moore found her own niche and started an acting career and found her place where she belongs in regards to music. Jessica hasn't found her place in music as of yet, and doesn't get any respect for anything she's done besides designing clothes — though the clothes are a big one, with many young women frankly relieved to be wearing something not designed for runway models.
  • Tearjerker: "Be".
