The story that accompanies this photo is pretty sad. I’m not sure why, but a tiny piece of me actually feels sorry for Jessica Simpson. She was performing the song “9 to 5” at an event honoring Dolly Parton (the show will not be aired until December 26 on CBS at 9pm) when she screwed up the lyrics, and ran off stage. The audience sat there, not sure what the hell was going on. There was no applause, only silence. Later, Jess appeared on stage again with all the other performers and it was apparent she had been crying. She had told Dolly that she was so nervous because Dolly is her idol. (Who the crap has Dolly Parton as their life idol?) The story is a little pathetic. But I really don’t care about this story. What I do, notice, however, is that Jess is looking chubbier than normal. Maybe it’s just because that dress doesn’t fit good.. and it makes her arms look big. And normally Jess doesn’t have armpit fat, which se clearly does here. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just a crappy picture? Her teeth look pretty fug here too. Poor Jessica. Her album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, then completely dropped off the charts. Her movie “Employee of the Month” broke even, and the reviews were less than complementary. She thought by breaking it off with Nick she’d be super famous and get lots of famous celebs to boff her, but really.. not even John Mayer likes her. She’s having a shitty time. Hopefully it doesn’t carry over to 2007. (Actually, I kind of hope it does. It’s like Karma. And then I could write about Jessica’s shitty life instead of writing about how Lindsay Lohan is a pathetic, attention grabbing whore.) What do you think, is she chubbier??
