Proverbial "Preacher's Daughter!"

A Born-Again Republican Singer-Actor;

Jessica Ann Simpson (born July 10, 1980) is a Born-Again, Bible-Believing, Conservative, Republican, daughter of a Conservative Baptist Minister in Texas. Can it get any better than that?

Since that time, 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.

Jessica Simpson has achieved seven Billboard Top 40 hits, three gold and two Multi-Platinum RIAA certified studio albums, four of which have reached the top 10 on the US Billboard 200.[1][2] Jessica Simpson starred with her then-husband Nick Lachey in the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. She ventured into the country music market in 2008 and released 'Do You Know'.

In 2009, Billboard named Jessica Simpson as the 95th overall best Artists of the Decade.[4] Simpson also was ranked at number 86 on Billboard 200 Artists, solely based on album sales.[5]

Jessica Simpson Early life

Jessica Simpsonwas born in Abilene, Texas, the daughter of Tina Ann (maiden name Drew) and Joe Truett Simpson, who was a minister and psychologist.[6][7]

Jessica Simpson's younger sister is also a popular singer, Ashlee Simpson.

As a child, Jessica Simpson began singing at her local Baptist Church.

At age twelve, Simpson auditioned for The Mickey Mouse Club, but didn't join the caste.[8]

While attending J.J. Pearce High School, Jessica Simpson signed to 'Proclaim Records', a minor Gospel music record label. She recorded an album, self-titled, "Jessica", but 'Proclaim' went bankrupt and the album was never officially released except for a small pressing funded by her grandmother.

However, with God's Blessing, even this small pressing gained her some good attention. Jessica Simpson gave concerts with other Christian artists such as Kirk Franklin, 'God's Property', and CeCe Winans.

Simpson left high school at age sixteen to fulfill her gospel singing career (later earning her diploma), and after Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola heard "Jessica", she was signed to the label.[9][10]

Jessica Simpson Career:

1999–01: Sweet Kisses and Irresistible.

Jessica Simpson released her first single, "I Wanna Love You Forever", which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1999 and reached the Top 10 in ten countries.[11] Soon afterward, her major label debut album 'Sweet Kisses' was released. To support the album, Simpson toured with Ricky Martin and boy band '98 Degrees'.

Meanwhile, Jessica Simpson's album Sweet Kisses had gone double platinum, helped by follow-up singles "Where You Are" and "I Think I'm In Love With You", which were both released in 2000. The latter became Simpson's biggest radio hit at that point, and was her first release of an uptempo single.

Her debut album sold 2 million copies in US and 4 million worldwide. Columbia Records officials reportedly decided Simpson needed a change for her sophomore album. The following year, when Simpson came to record her second album, executives pressured her to have a much more sexy image, contrary to her Christian roots: a compromise was reached.

Jessica Simpson must be admired for her moral stand. While many have earned millions from posing for Playboy and Penthouse type magazines, Jessica Simpson has resisted all such temptation, choosing rather to earn her fans and dollars in a decent, honorable, and respectful way, in the manner of fellow Christians Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Kathy Ireland, etc.,

In 2001, Simpson recorded a follow-up album with what Columbia considered more radio-friendly, up-tempo tracks. Irresistible was released in mid-2001 on the heels of the title-track first single. "Irresistible" became one of the biggest hits of her career; it peaked at #15 on the Hot 100 and stayed in the chart for 20 weeks.[12] The single reached its peak at #2 in Belgium and the top-twenty on twelve countries.

Jessica Simpson: 'I Wanna Love You Forever' (1999) One of Simpson critically acclaimed works that helped her establish herself in the pop scene.

'Irresistible' debuted at #6 in June 2001 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart,[13] with 127,000[14] copies sold in its first week and was certified Gold[15] for selling 500,000 copies in its fifth week. 'Irresistible' has sold 850,000 copies to date in U.S. and 3 million copies worldwide. "A Little Bit" was released as the second single from the album but did not enter the chart.

In support of the album, Simpson toured mid-August, 'The Dream Chaser Tour', but due to the 9-11 attacks could not complete the planned dates.[16]

During the summer of 2003, the reality show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, starring Simpson and her then-new husband Nick Lachey began airing on MTV. Simpson's third album, In This Skin, was released in August 2003 to coincide with the series premiere of Newlyweds.

The show quickly became a pop culture phenomenon and is credited with making her a household name, even among those who did not follow pop music or MTV. “I never knew that just doing the show would give me that pedestal to step on,” Simpson told Blender magazine in a March 2004 feature.[17]

'This Skin', debuted at #10 on The Billboard 200 album chart, with sales of 64,000 in its first week. It rebounded after a special collectors' edition was released in April 2004 and subsequently reached a peak at #2[13] with 157,000 copies in that week. It contained the song "Sweetest Sin", which barely even made an impact on the Bubbling Under Hot 100.

However, the album did contain the hit singles "With You" (#14, 2004) and a cover of the Berlin song "Take My Breath Away" (#20, 2004), and a lesser hit, a cover of the Robbie Williams song "Angels", which charted just outside the Billboard Hot 100.[11]

In December 2004, the album was certified 3x Multi-Platinum by the RIAA.[18] According to Simpson's biography, the album has sold 4 million copies in U.S. at the date.[19]

The couple starred in the television special The Nick and Jessica Variety Hour, which aired in 2004 and was compared to The Sonny & Cher Show.[20] In 2005, 'Newlyweds' won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Reality Show before wrapping shortly after.[21]

Jessica Simpson, 'These Boots are Made for Walkin' (2005)

"These Boots are Made for Walkin'", one of Simpson's first country music works, became her foray into the genre.

Simpson also released 'Rejoyce: The Christmas Album' in late 2004, which peaked at #14 on the album chart and was later certified gold.[22]

Jessica Simpson appeared on 'The Dukes of Hazzard' soundtrack, releasing "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", a cover of the 1966 Nancy Sinatra hit. The song peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Song from a Movie in 2006.[11][23]

The song's video featured Simpson as Daisy Duke. It contains scenes of her flirting and singing in a bar and then later washing the General Lee car, while wearing a skin-tight, revealing pink bikini.

Simpson received criticism from a Christian group calling itself "The Resistance", for the sexualized image she used in the music video for "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'".[24] In response, Simpson stated, "It didn't really surprise me because I grew up with a lot of that backlash. That's why I didn't end up going into the Christian music industry. I think that if they're really true Christians the judgment wouldn't be there."[25]

In the summer of 2005, Simpson made her first appearance in a motion picture as Daisy Duke in the movie version of the television series The Dukes of Hazzard.[26] The film was #1 at the box office its opening weekend, and grossed $30.7 million on 3,785 screens. It also had an adjusted-dollar rank of #14 all-time for August releases. The film eventually collected $110.5 million worldwide, although it was much less financially successful outside the U.S.[27]

2006–07: A Public Affair and Employee of the MonthSimpson in August 2006

In 2006, Simpson then returned to the recording studio, switching labels from Columbia to Epic Records. On 29 August 2006, she released her fourth album A Public Affair, the album debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200, with 101,000 copies sold in its first week, and spent 10 weeks on the Billboard. The album sold 300,000 copies in the U.S. and 800,000 worldwide, a low figure compared with her previous albums.

The first single from the album, bearing the same name "A Public Affair", debuted at 39, her highest debut after "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", coming after the # 14 on the Hot 100, the single also hit number 1 on the Hot Dance Club Play.

Internationally, it reached the Top 10 in Canada and Ireland. The video features appearances by Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate, Christina Milian, Maria Menounos, Andy Dick, and Ryan Seacrest. It became her most successful video on TRL, peaking at 2 for 28 days.[citation needed] The second and final single from the album, was "I Belong To Me", which won by a poll on its website. It was released on September 26 and peaked at #110 in U.S. The single's video appeared on TRL countdowns, but quickly fell off.

A Public Affair (2006)

Apart from pop and country music, Simpson also incorporated elements of dance music into her works. "A Public Affair" of 2006 contained strong influences of disco music, while maintaining its dance tune.

Simpson's second film, Employee of the Month, was released October 6, 2006. With poor reviews, the film took in $11.8 million in its opening weekend, debuting at #4 just behind Open Season.[28]

In December 2006, while performing a tribute to Dolly Parton at the Kennedy Center Awards, she botched the lyrics, getting flustered in front of a crowd that included prominent persons such as Steven Spielberg, Shania Twain, and President George W. Bush. Though Simpson was given the chance to redo the song for cameras, her portion was edited out of the CBS broadcast.[29][30]

In December 2007, Simpson co-starred with Luke Wilson in her third film, 'Blonde Ambition'. The film opened in eight theaters in Texas (the home state of both Simpson and Wilson), and earned US $6,422. It was released on DVD in January 2008.[31] Blonde Ambition fared better overseas, where it grossed $253,008 in the Ukraine its opening weekend.[32]

2008–09: Move to country and 'Do You Know'

In September 2007, Simpson's father Joe Simpson stated to People magazine that Simpson was considering doing a country album. Joe Simpson told People that she is "talking about doing a country record and going back to her roots, being from Texas."[33]

"Come On Over", first leaked onto the internet on May 27, 2008. Shortly after country radio stations around the country began giving the single radio play. In the United States, "Come on Over" became the most-added song to country radio for the week of June 6, 2008, debuting at number 41 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

It broke a record held by Miranda Lambert ("Me and Charlie Talking") and Brad Cotter ("I Meant To") for highest-debuting first chart entry by a solo artist; both artists debuted at number 42 on that same chart.[34]

The video for the first single, "Come On Over", premiered on Simpson's official website in July 2008.[35] The single peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs. Prior to the albums release, Simpson performed at select state fairs and visited various country music radio stations in order to promote the album.

The country album, entitled 'Do You Know', was released on September 9, 2008.[36] The album fully leaked onto the internet on August 28, 2008. The album debuted #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in both the US and Canada, giving Simpson her first #1 album of her career.

She opened for Rascal Flatts on their "Bob That Head Tour" from January 17 through March 14, 2009. The album's second single "Remember That" was released to country radio on September 29, 2008. The single peaked at #42 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and dropped off the chart by the end of December 2008.

The album's third single was "Pray Out Loud", which failed to chart.
