    I really don’t think it matters what producer Jessica works with, it’s not going to be enough. She’d going to be facing tough competition from Julianne Hough from Dancing with the Stars who is coming out with her country album in the spring. I have heard her sing , and she’s really good. Plus people like her. Jessicas last CD bombed, so I’m not so sure she has the fan base to support her next one. And country music fans are hard to win over, and she is just not that popular. Especially in Dallas. I don’t look for it to be a success.

    If she had started out country, she might have some credibility, but no such luck.

    Dolly – Please don’t do it – she will only kill your career. She is just plain bad luck. Look what she has done to Nick and Tony. RUN!

  • beth

    Well at least 50% of the duet will sound good – Dolly’s 50%.

  • erin

    Why is Dolly committing career suicide?

  • diana

    Just because someone is saying she is doing a duet with Dolly doesn’t mean it is true. I would be highly surprised if Dolly did a duet with her unless she is paid a lot of money. Dolly doesn’t just do duets with anyone that wants her too, but if she does, Dolly isn’t creating career suicide, she must just have been insane that day in the recording studio.

    The album will flop worse than Corrie Clark’s did.

  • QT

    Oh wow, can’t wait for this album….NOT! What a friggin joke!

  • Helena

    Jared, you”ve lost a lot of credibility for posting this has-been.

  • mINDY

    I didn’t like Jessica’s last album, but I do think she will do well with a country one. She was never really a “pop” artist. Her voice lends itself to more inspirational music…or country. I honestly think it will be great. As far as Dolly Parton goes, what exactly has she done lately? Her career could use a boost too. Not saying she isn’t great..but she hasn’t really made anything lately has she?

  • Paradise

    Only one word; Gorgeous :-)

  • talula

    She’ll need all the help that she can get.

  • Ann

    What’ll you bet she is laying into sympathy. I really hate this chick she is so fake. She will need everybody on that sucker, because the Simpson’s can’t stand any more flops.

  • The Arab Aquarius

    Hmmmm…. Interesting. Maybe this album wont be that bad after all…. Love Dolly!

  • Lynnie

    Yes, Jessica, we know you are dating Tony Romo but do you always have to sport the Cowboy logo? Not like you know a thing about football anyways. Ugh cant stand her. Dolly P. should reconsider the duet thing.

  • gefsd

    okay guys i’m pretty sure it’s safe to say dolly wouldn’t be ruining over decades of her career in one duet, that’s just impossible with an icon as herself.

  • urgh

    Don’t do it Dolly, this leech will suck out your soul!

  • getlostuglysimpson

    This hag was out of the press for a few weeks, so obviously she went in for a whole new round of plastic surgery before ringing up all her pap friends. Didn’t help though, still an ugly, desperate man face.

  • Superbowl bound

    Sorry but damn is she ugly.

  • woohoo

    So excited to buy her new album!!! But have to wait end of the year…still very long… :(

  • Ben

    Everything about this chick is phony and set up. The Simpsons or running out. They thought they had John Mayer for sure thats why her dad put her on his tour bus to do what he please to her. They were so shock when that did not pan out. Thats why she went into hiding.
    Now her dad found her another man and now she is in love with this-gee she will fall in love with anything her dad brings home. That sure don’t say much about Roma who allows himself to be used.
    They think they got Tony Roma for sure now here she comes again.
    She has no talent thats why they thinks she need a man to put out a album. I still am NOT going to buy her garbage. Her fake PR people can put up all the phony post they want you can’t trick people like that.

  • Terry

    Mindless creature fall in love with anybody daddy bring home.
    Those horrible notes she hit when she was at that club proved what she was all about. This album will be faked up. She is too stupid to have shame. This is a slap in the face to country music. I guess country music is so easy anybody can do it and you don’t need any talent.

  • A

    With regards to what Dolly is doing currently…she has a new country single and video (the video includes Amy Sedaris), titled “Better Get to Livin”, she has a new country album coming out February 26, titled Backwoods Barbie, she is launching a world tour this month, she has a new official music website and a new MySpace page. She is busier than ever.

  • Cupcake

    Come on! Now she is doing this, because her dad is running out of music types to stick her in. I thought when you sang, it was about the passion for it…she is jumping from one to the other, because she is bombing in everything. She has a good voice, but a BIG mouth that looks annoying when she sings, and everyone says she has a nice body, when her ass is flatter than a pancake. And then she goes to football games and acts interested when she wasnt like that with Nick. Phoney all over! Face it Simpsons- Jessica is falling little by little–thats what happens when you are a selfish person!

  • Jeremy

    In response to Mindys comment, yes Dolly Parton has done a lot lately. Not only has she just released a new cd, she’s on a world tour right now. Almost all of her concerts have been sold out. Besides that, she has just written a broadway musical (remake of 9 to 5), shes opened up the imagination library overseas, and her new music video for Jesus and Gravity has stayed in the number one spot on cmt for several weeks now. so yea, shes been busy lol
    I’m not really a fan of jessica simpson, but I’m curious to hear the song that her and Dolly are doing. That’ll be interesting for sure. =)
