Jessica Simpson Ignites Indiana

Jessica Simpson performs at the 2008 Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis, Indiana on Thursday.

The 28-year-old singer sang several songs from her latest album, and also covered Dusty Springfield‘s “Son of a Preacher Man” and John Michael Montgomery‘s “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident).”

Jessica‘s dad, Joe Simpson, was escorted by seven state troopers when he walked through the members of the audience.

    She looks good :]

    First comment.

  • Abbyyyy

    she looks great!!

  • delfi

    i dont like her, i prefer , ASHLEE

  • victoria

    Jessica looks really good here. I love her outfit especially her belt. Her hair looks real cute pulled back, and she seems to be having a great time. How could you prefer Ashlee over her? Yes, they are both cute, but I think Jessica has a little more talent.

  • LuckyL

    LOL@ Daddy getting escorted by 7 State Troopers

  • Hick

    Jessica used to be so fashionable and put together. Now she looks like a hick w/ zero style. Just because you’re singing country doesn’t mean you have to dress like a country bumpkin from the south. Go back to being the cute Jess we all know and love!

  • Jay

    Isn’t her waist line think around the middle. So I see why Jennifer Aniston was running around town in little cut off shorts. Jen is up set that John Mayer had a serious thing for Jessica, even keeping Jess love letters. Jessica is working her way out of a hole from dating John Mayer while Jennifer is sinking into the same hole that Jess fell into. You date Mayer and you career start sucking.

  • Nicole

    Doing state fairs now? Heh.

  • Seriously

    Jen and Jessica’s careers started sucking LONG before John Mayer came along. If anything they ruined his career.

    dumbass #6 Jessica IS from the south. You need to get out and see the world. You don’t seem to have a clue what you’re talking about, you HICK.

  • lj

    Looks like she has a double chin and only a few moves. Those back up singers don’t look very professional. She’s getting pretty desperate.

  • Over it

    I read on another site that Tony Romo still calls Carrie but she doesnt answer. Does that mean Tony dumped Jessica and is trying to get back with Carrie? Tony was foolish to let Carrie go so I hope Carrie keeps denying his calls. Who wants Tony after hes been with Chestica? Carrie deserves and will find someone better.

  • Hmm

    I think she needs a bigger shirt.

  • Amber

    She looks very pretty here, but I still dont buy her as a country artist. Shes just another pop star who’s career went down the drain and turned to the only other platform she could think of: country.

  • b

    She seems like a nice person, but good Lord, the girl cannot sing! She should stick to her business ventures.

  • Over it

    I agree with Amber. When her country album fails, and it will, she will turn to rap music and when rap doesnt go well, it will be polka and the cycle continues until she touches base on all genres. She is a joke, nobody takes her seriously. I heard she only drew 4thousand people of a venue that holds 15thousand. What does that tell you? People dont want to hear her. She’s finished. What is funny is she thought she was going to be this huge star after her divorce and it came to bite her in the butt.

    Seriously @ 08/08/2008 at 11:05 pm Jen and Jessica’s careers started sucking LONG before John Mayer came along. If anything they ruined his career.

    ^
    So true they ruin John Mayer’s career he s#ck now. I wouldn’t go see him if it was free. He is a real douche bag.

  • Matthew

    Why is her middle so porky? Ladies help me understand this :/

  • soooooo?

    Is she doing country now because her pop music career is dead and she’s trying to cash in on being country. Poser much? Her music is as fake as her hair.

  • ……

    Matthew @ 08/09/2008 at 1:06 am Why is her middle so porky? Ladies help me understand this :/

    she’s gained weight, and that area is her problem area. in other words, she’s fat.

  • gennii

    why does her daddy have to be every where she goes? Jessuz, she’s a grown woman, and should be managing her own business…even when it fails. He’s sooo annoying…all the SIMPSONs are!!!

  • Poor jess

    I’m feeling really sorry for this girl lately. She tries soooo hard, it’s pathetic. You don’t even see real (lifelong) country singers dressing this bumpkinish… Her desperation is really embarrassing to watch.

    And to think a few years ago she was the total it girl.

  • Kaylee

    That outfit belongs on someone slim. Jessica is too fat for that shirt it looks like the buttons are about to pop. I read people were walking out of the concert and her voice was too painful some were covering their ears.

  • Melania Tyson-Hunter

    Wow now she has to perform at local fairs her career is a mess

  • well…

    You people are crazy. She looks great. If Aniston can walk around and like that and she is 10 years older than her than Jessica can do it. She has great legs.

    # 26 well… @ 08/09/2008 at 2:35 am

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The difference is, Jennifer is in great body shape, so her wearing those outfits look good. Jessica is fat and should dress more for her body type.

  • ella

    In the Enquirer (so take that for what it’s worth) it said that she thought she was pregnant so she and Tony told his family and they flipped! I doubt that’s true but it sounds kinda funny.

  • simpsonssuck

    FAT, TRANNY PIG! Grossssss

  • james

    a special dedication for jess and ash
    pink with stupid girls

  • MiHay

    Didn’t she learn from all of her failed pop albums and craptastic films? Another album that will fail miserably. Go away Jessica.

  • Vshizzle

    Why did Joe need 7 State Troopers? I think that is a bit much….Good Grief.

  • Hick

    DUMBASS NUMBER 11- I know Jessica is from Texas…does that mean she has to dress like a hick? Go back to living your sad, little Deliverance life and be sure to hang your conferderate flag prodly. Oh and tell your mom, who is also your sister, aunt and cousin that I said hello!

  • JANE

    state fairs….the end of the road for her ……..and she sucked big time again!! and was boooooood…….big time…..she tries tooo hard…it looks sad….pathetic…….she’s done……..these people should complain that live there……state troopers for that boob joe simpson!! his free ride s over with his chestica’s!!

  • remember da truth

    Oh please….
    “I heard…..” “I read on another site…..” “The National Enquirer says …..”

    Don’t you people realize that tabloids and blogs and gossip ARE MADE UP!?!?! How stupid you people are!!

    Yes, her shirt is a size too small, but Jessica has been dressing like this since before her reality show days. This IS Jessica — a country bumpkin with no brains!!

    As for her singing at county fairs — what do you mean her career has fallen??? When was she selling out arenas? Before the reality show with Nick, she was a small-time gospel and country singer. The country thing is not just to try a new genre — the POP stuff was out of her element!! This girl CAN sing, but she has no intelligence or taste, and that’s what is the turnoff. Nothing to back it up.

  • kristinb

    I am stunned and so embarrassed for her and her sad never ending journey to seek attention, at any cost of humiliation. Some people have no shame and cannot be happy without being in the spotlight. Jessica – take your money and go live your life in obscurity.

  • Lourdes

    UGLY UNTALENTED SLUT! sHE TRIES SO DESPERATELY TO SELL MUSIC BY DRESSING UP LIKE A SLUT BUT IT’S STILL NOT WORKING. NOBODY WANTS TO LISTEN TO HER CRAPPY WHORE VOICE. HER ONLY OPTION IS TO DO PLAYBOY WITH HER PERV DAD.

  • Lourdes

    #26 IS OBVIOUSLY A SHORT FAT CHICK. FOR YOUR INFO SHORT LEGS ARE DISGUSTING NOT GREAT. LONG SLIM LEGS ARE SEXY.

  • jenn

    u guys r just plain nasty!! jessica is gorgeous & has a body to die for! Her album will b a major hit….. stop the jealousy & get a life…..!

  • Georgia

    Only 4000 people came to her concert. Many of those came for free because they were doing a “buy one get one free” campaign with her concert and the tickets were reduced to start with. On the other hand, the next night Carrie Underwood sold 12,000 tickets for a much higher price than Jessica’s. There’s writing on the wall and it doesn’t look good for Jessica. Sadly, I don’t know if she can read it.

  • me

    She sounds great! She looks great and for once she who she is! You need to hear “When I love you like that” then you will understand. She is very talented, I am so glad that she is not giving up on herself. Her song is #18 on the Billboard, #19 on mediabase. #1 Country video, #2 on CMT, People this girl is very talented. She has a great voice. People have been listening to her not knowing it was her. Listen to Disneys “Part of your World” there is a video out too.

  • Lindsey

    Jessica always comes in third first with Britney and Christina and now with Taylor and Carrie!!SO SAD!!But she can sell shoes that’s a good backup plan.

  • xyz

    FAT REDNECK TRANNY

  • xyz

    #40 Jen you are obviously retarded. Everything Jessica has ever done has failed miserably, nothing she does will be average let alone a hit. You’re the one who needs to get a life if you think this brainless pathetic loser is capable of producing hits.

  • bejeebus

    wtf? no, seriously…wtf? beyond that simple question, i’m completely speechless…..

  • Rayando el Sol

    I think Jessica is going to do just fine in country if this song is any indication.

    P.S. I think this one is about JM.

  • Caring

    7 State Troopers, so this what our tax paying money is going towards?! such a darn shame!

  • Stephie

    beautiful!

  • nicky

    In response to #41 Georgia- are you being serious?

    Carrie Underwood is now an established country artists. If she didn’t pull in more of a crowd than Jessica Simpson at this stage that would be a big problem.

    Jessica has done really well to get even a couple thousand given that she is not established, has not even released her first country album and any one going to her concert is taking a leap of faith since no one has heard her new material.

    Be fair. When ppl hear her stuff , over time she’ll gather new fans in country music.
