Jessica Simpson is Elle-egant

Jessica Simpson is Elle-egant

Jessica Simpson appears on the cover of the September issue of Elle magazine and opens up about her previous and current relationships.

On the period immediately following her 2005 split from ex-husband Nick Lachey: “I was going through a lot of pain. I didn’t try anything to change my life other than dating different types of guys and conforming to their worlds. I thought I had to be artsier, more intellectual.”

On if she’s been physically abused and recording a song about it: “I don’t want to talk about it, but I have definitely experienced abuse in a way that I would tell people to take their heart and run… I had to record that. There’s nothing on my album that you’re gonna hear that I don’t relate to or that I haven’t experienced. Because the only way I know how to sing is from life experience.”

On her ex-beau, musician John Mayer: “John believed in the Jessica Simpson that’s within. He cherished our love. He helped make me the woman I am today. John is going to be an amazing man for someone, but I know that I was supposed to be with someone else.”

On her relationship with Tony Romo: “Most of the guys I dated were captivated by my heart, but they had different ways of trying to get to me. Tony understands me. He appreciates my talent. He’s the first person I’ve spiritually connected with. It’s the cutest thing, he’ll say, Jessica, 75% of the comments about your new single are favorable.”

The September 2008 issue of Elle hits newsstands on August 11.

    tony is one luckyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy asssss guy

  • angela

    yeah, that cover is either photoshopped or taken at least seven months ago, because she’s gained crazy weight since then.

    and i hope these quotes sound better in context, cause she sounds like a moron.

    btw, if my boyfriend said that 75% of my work is acceptable….isn’t that a C-? ha

  • babyt

    I cannot think of one person who actually likes her anymore. She’s irritating and needs to go away. I hate hearing about her being a good southern girl and her bs. She just needs to stfu and go away already with her dumbass laugh and realize that no one likes her anymore.

  • Megs

    Well, she’s right. John Mayer is an amazing man for someone else now. And she’s happy with Tony. Nice quotes.

  • bejeebus

    what next with this “cuntry girl campaign”? maybe….a picture of her tipping a cow? sitting by a campfire cooking lake trout? i mean, this is so over the top already….doesn’t she realize how silly it all looks? her pr team must think that the consumers are really stupid that they need to be spoon fed this marketing baby food. they need to give people credit for being just a little bit more sophisticated than this… this….. caca?

  • Cattyluo

    She is sexy. I like her very much.I saw her profile on M i l l i o n a i r e 4 m e . c o m ——-She is so hot.It is worthy to have a look.Don’t miss it.

  • T&M.

    I agree with #3, she is definitely not as slim now than how she appears to be on the cover. Either way, Jessica’s fake to me. She does whatever she can to be the center of publicity. Notice how every guy she was with previously is perfectly happy and in a healthy relationship with another woman currently; i.e. Nick Lachey and John Mayer. Even her younger sister is happily married and pregnant! I just wonder how much longer her fling with Tony will last.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    nobody likes her.

  • JANE

    WHY…WHY…DOES SHE GO ON TALKING IN PUBLIC ABOUT ALL THEMEN SHE’S BEEN WITH!!! WHO WOULD WANT TO GO OUT WITH HER!! SHE WOULD STILL RUN BACK 2 JOHN MAYER IF HE ASKED…..I UNDERSTAND SHE WAS DEVASTATED WHEN HE DUMPED HER!! AND AT ONE POINT SHE WANTED TO GO BACK WITH NICK…BUT IT WAS TOOO LATE…..SHE NEEDS TO KEEP HER TRAP SHUT….AND HER LEGS!! SOME CHRISTIAN GIRL!! WHY…DOES THIS TONY GUY WANT HER?? SHE WILL FAIL WITH THIS COUNTRY STUFF…IT’S PHONY….WE ALL SEE IT!! SHE’S ON HER LAST DITCH EFFORT TO SUCCEED…AND IT’S ALREADY ABOUT TO FAIL!! SHE’S TRYIONG TO MARRY TONY AND GET PREGGERS…SO, RUN TONY RUN!! JSSICA…KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!!

  • g

    Yeahhhhh, they were all captivated by your “heart.” Mmmmkay.

  • MIKE

    I LOOOOOOOVE her!!!!!! Although I have to say…the cover is not flattering…. lol <3

  • Sherylsp

    Good grief…she really does like to talk about herself and her ex’es, doesn’t she? No wonder she’s had such lousy luck with men! And I wonder who supposedly abused her…or maybe she’s just pretending to play the “abused woman” role to make herself more sympathetic to the masses? At any rate, it ain’t working—she’s so desperate to stay relevant and it’s annoyingly obvious. I agree with everyone else: GO AWAY, Jessica! Go off and marry some nice, simple-minded country boy and have his babies, enjoy your millions, and leave the celebrity life to someone savvy enough to make their time in the spotlight somewhat meaningful.

  • stephanie

    oh god, horrible september cover.
    just absoutely horrible.

  • Good for them

    Jessica seems to be happy with Tony. That is good for her. Tony has been a steady support for her. Jessica has good business sense.

  • kenya

    I think she looks great. I think she is a great singer whether she sings country or pop. The problem I am having is that you idiots are saying these negative comments about a star who has no idea that you morons exist. Regardless of the stupid jealous comments she will continue to be on covers and continue to make millions. But you on the other hand well let’s just say you should just take that gun and end your miserable lives to this world can be a much better place. people who say negative things about someone they do not know must have self-esteem issues. Grow up and get a job!!!

  • voe

    When are the fashion magazines going to stop using actresses for cover. I’d rather see a gorgeous outfit on hanger on the cover, looking at and read about fashion.

  • @ kenya (who needs meds badly)

    kenya,
    Yet you are encouraging complete strangers to go kill themselves……. Hmmmm….sounds like YOU are the one in need of help ASAP.

  • CAROL

    Isn’t Elle a fashion mag? What is with the lumberjack look and the rodeo belt? Oh year she is country now! She needs to get her own id and not say This man made me better! Make yourself better you talentless hack!

  • Anna

    She is annoying. She needs to pack it up and go home. “He understands me.” Really?! Well, he’s the only one.

  • shoes4life

    Well, I see Papa Joe has come up with a sympathy bate story to make her seem vunerable in hopes that people will relate and buy her stupid country album. It is sad that so many so-called celebs uses the “I was abused” line when they want to sell or promote something. You would think people would have caught on to the lie by now. Well Jessica unless it was your own daddy or John Mayer pissing on you, I think you’re lying bigtime! It is all a cover to sell albums because if her ass was abused in some shape or form in recent years trust me she would have been singing like a humming bird to the masses to sell her crap music.

    Stop selling your soul Jessica and go back to Christian music!

  • LN

    Can someone tell me what the hell she’s talking about in questioin #2? I sincerely don’t understand what she’s saying. I get that a lot with her.

  • jen

    I really really wish she’d stop trying to act country. Everyone knows that country music is a last resort for her. She always morphs herself into whatever shes trying to do so ppl will believe her. BUt this fake “im from texas so i’m a country girl” is getting pretty old. And I don’t think anyone is going to buy into her sympathy act.
    I really used to like Jessica Simpson back in the day. But she’s so fake now. I hate that.

    PHOTOSHOP……geez~

  • mikayla

    this is a public attempt to sell CD’s for she and her camp know she can’t do it on talent alone…cause there is no talent…okay okay…to be fair she sounds better then say the average person singing a song, but when you hear someone with huge amount of talent that is happening right now like miss carrie underwood, kellie pickler, leanne rimes, etc, you can’t help but compare them and she can’t sing not like the pro’s especially in country they take there talent serious it’s not pop where you can dance and it’ll be okay…2 different worlds, and dressing like that with plaid shirt , jeans, and a buckle douesn’t make you country if anything she looks like a hick not country classy…i don’t believe i’ve ever seen faith hill, shania, or martina dressed like this before on a cover??? she looks ridiculous again she is tryin’ to hard…i think she talks too much in her interviews and i think it’s a pity me story to win consumers,…she is so fake and her country album will not do good don’t get me wrong there are those few that will buy it but as far as selling records like the “real country women” in the industry …not gonna happen she can’t out sell…carrie, taylor, kellie, etc…haha she’s stupider then i thought if she thinks she can…..i’m kind of embarassed for her really..because when she goes to these ACM’s CMA’S GRAMMY Awards she won’t be winning them …what’s worse for her since she’s all the jealous and catty type is that she’ll be seating in the side lines watching carrie tony’s ex taking all the glory…”real girls eat meat” according to jessica tryin’ to attack carrie but in carrie’s defense “real girls know how to win”.

  • Nicole

    She’s trying to hard to look country.
    I like the outfit, but seriously, she is trying way too hard. Cowboy boots and belt buckles don’t make you a country singer. The music does.

  • bee

    jealousy is ugly

  • erika

    She does not want to talk about being physically abused …. huh?!?!?!

    HOney, Tony likes you for mainly one thing ~ there could be other things, but c’mon!

  • lj

    Jessica’s gone to a new low. How desperate can you be to hint about abuse? She’s playing the sympathy card as usual. People forget that she dumped Nick and had rumored affairs while married with Johnny Knoxville, Dane Cook , Adam Levine, plus two others that I saw photos of. She said when she was in high school all of her friends were guys. That outfit is so cliche, especially the belt which covers up her big stomach.

  • Carrie

    Jessica Simpson is a f**king idiot. She needs to learn to keep her stupid trap shut because nothing relevant ever comes out of her dumb mouth. She continues to expose her present and past relationships to the press and then wonders why they don’t work out. Tony already dumped her once because of her nonsense and he will probably be dumping her again if she continues babbling her big fat mouth. Hopefully it’s sooner than later.

  • kylie

    please, someone probably told her to stop being a whiny little brat and she took that as abuse because little miss princess didn’t get what she wanted. Her and her father will stop at NOTHING to get publicity and sympathy. Disgusting. How can they live with themselves?!

  • Lillianne

    I wish Tony would say “Jessica, your bare toes are hanging off your too short shoes and dragging on the spit-covered sidewalk.”

  • Meg

    I think the abuse came from John Mayer. She always looked mad and up set with him. John didn’t seem to treat her to nice.

  • sick of Jessica!

    Jessica was a nobody before she met Nick Lachey. She used to open for 98 Degrees concerts, became Nick’s girlfriend, rode on his coat tails, used him and then dumped him, and now still trying to milk her 15 minutes of fame. While married to Nick, all she cared about was herself, shopped till she dropped, a slob, and a good 4 nothing wife.

  • kenya

    this is reference to # 18 and whoever else who has a problem with jessica simpson. YOU ALL ARE A BUNCH OF CLASSLESS LOSERS WHO HAVE NO LIFE AND NO HOME TRAINING. GET A JOB OR GO TO SCHOOL AND MAYBE YOU CAN HAVE A FULFILLING LIFE INSTEAD OF HATING ON A COUNTRY SINGER WHO HAS MORE MONEY THAN YOU RETARDS PUT TOGETHER. AND OH YEAH #18. YOU SOUND LIKE A LOW SELF-ESTEEM IDIOT. TAKE MY ADVICE AND USE THOSE MEDS ON YOURSELF BECAUSE I THINK YOU AND YOUR MORONS FRIENDS NEED THEM.

  • gina

    She is really overdoing the country thing, especially after they booed her off the stage. She looks good here though.

    It’s official: this Kenya person is a psycho. A psycho who wants to make sweet, sweet monkey love to her beloved Jessica Simpson and go gun down anyone who dares to not also worship at the altar of Jessica Simpson. Because obviously if you hate on Jessica Simpson, you have no job or life and are just so, so jealous and classless, unlike this gem of a human being. Didn’t you guys get Kenya’s memo? You’re just jealous and unhappy and deserve to die if you dare hate on Jessica Simpson!

  • Megan fox rocks

    she looks so pretty

  • Abused My ass

    Nick: Jessica you left your wet towels all over the floor again.

    Jess: But Nick! We should get a maid!!

    Nick: Honey we don’t need a maid. It very simple when you are finished with your clothes or your towel you throw it in the hamper.

    Jess: Nick I can’t that takes too much thought and effort and I don’t feel like it.. I want a maid and a cook and a decorator and a stylist and someone to wipe my ass!

    Nick: Jes, we have to save money where we can honey.. I mean the pop careers won’t last forever, we just aren’t that talented. And sweetie you are a sexy lil peach but you can’t act for shit.. you would even suck at adult movies.. you just don’t have it in ya. Believe me. I love you and I want what is best for us.. lets save as much money as we can ok? I mean seriously, you don’t want to fail at everything and then have to pretend you want a counrty career right? That would suck!

    Jess: I feel so abused!!!! I am calling my Daddy to get permission for a divorce.

    Nick deserved a medal for putting up with her stupid ass as long as he did!

  • sher

    I have heard rumors in Texas, she never graduated from high school,Well if it is true, maybe that explains why she hasn’t grown up yet. Still in that high school mode, or thinks she is still on the football or prom queens court and everyone loves her? I have heard rumors she was the prom or football queen in Richardson Texas, where she went to high school,. Will someone who knows please clear this up?

    Tony Romo seems like a good kid, but how did he get trapped with her? He deserves better and can do better.

  • victoria

    42nd!!!! Jessica looks cute on the cover, but I will read the story myself,on her love life. They all change their minds on each interview depending on their day and time. BUT, on this cover, she looks good, IF, it is not airbrushed.

  • ~Khaj

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and assume that the “75%” comment is one of those ones you have to ~hear~ in order to get. I think that’s part of her problem… she doesn’t quite get that some things just don’t translate all that well to print and can often make you sound more than a bit ditsy. (yes, I know, even when she’s speaking, it often comes out more than a bit ditsy, but right now I’m talking about when she quotes others.)

  • jolielove~

    they should be together.

  • Holly

    WOW…..Kenya is a fricken nut job! What a classless freak! LOL

  • hit the nail on the head

    Abused my ass , so funny

  • yuk

    Thick, midget tranny Jessucka has never had a waist until this ridiculous cover.

  • me

    Heh…someone archive her Elle September 2004 cover…its EXACTLY THE SAME. Including the ridiculous plaid shirt.

  • simpsonsareevil

    Well she sure knows how to get back at Mayer for using her, dumping her (repeatedly between easy booty calls) and publicly calling her out for stalking him (while going out with $$$$ contract Tony). Nothing could be more humiliating than having people think he actually saw something good in this greedy tranny’s interior. Well played Papa Joe, I bet he’s hurting today!

  • KENYA

    #38

    I AM GLAD THAT YOU UNDERSTOOD THE MEMO. THAT LET’S ME KNOW THAT YOU AT LEAST PASSED THE 8TH GRADE AND THAT YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDING THAT YOU ARE A MORON. FURTHERMORE I THINK YOU THE CARPET MUNCHER NOT I.
