Jessica Simpson Felt 'Empowered' By Criticism To Lose Her Baby Weight

Jessica Simpson Felt 'Empowered' By Criticism To Lose Her Baby Weight

Jessica Simpson goes all black early in the morning to make an appearance on the Today show on Wednesday (September 24) in New York City.

The 33-year-old entertainer changed to a cute black and white dress to do her interview, before later stepping out in a mismatched plaid ensemble.

“[Media criticisms] empowered me to rise above and stand up for all the women out there that do have trouble losing the weight,” Jessica said on the show about her new body. “It wasn’t really my priority to please the public and make them feel like I’m supposed to be looking like i did when I was 25.”

“I don’t think that I wasn’t still a sex symbol [with the weight]. To my husband, I was still extremely sexy,” Jess added. “I have feelings and hormones. I got emotional about it at times, but if anything I just kind of wanted to be a champion for other women and say, ‘We can do this.’ [It] just feel(s) more comfortable in my skin.”

FYI: Jessica is wearing a black American Vintage pant suit with a Givenchy bag. On the Today show, she’s wearing a Valentino dress with Charlotte Olympia shoes. Her third look is McQ by Alexander McQueen with Charlotte Olympia shoes.

    blah blah, until the next time she plumps up like a blimp..She’s a fat girl inside who will always have weight issues.

  • nm

    Good for her. She’s been harshly fat-shamed-and still is ^ . I applaud her for keeping it together and chosing health over image.

  • Mary

    I wish she would feel “empowered” enough to stop looking like a teenager with low self-esteem. Her hair is just gross, and most of her outfits scream low self-esteem. The all black ensemble is a rare hit for her.

  • Christina

    She looks so elegant and classy in that all black ensemble. Stick to that look, Jessica! It is possible to be covered up and still sexy!

  • keller

    Hearing her try to sound articulate makes me cringe. And seriously, how many times has she said now that she feels comfortable in her skin for the first time… she oozes insecurity.

  • yuckkkk

    she has the worst legs ever!!!!!

  • meiii

    yup……worst legs ever……and yes…very insecure……and that mixed pattern outfit……what the heck is that!!!!!???????

  • Gmaysie Kartofe

    This Woman has been divorced once already in her young life as has her younger Sister. Her parents recently divorced after her Father, a self proclaimed preacher ran off with a young homosexual. Should people be following this Woman as a role model?

  • Ivermom

    Good for her! She looks great.

    Back in the 90s, I thought Jessica would disappear after her second album flopped. I still can’t believe she is still relevant.

    She was more mature and articulate in interviews when she was a teenager. She seems very uncomfortable now. She sounds like she is on drugs.
