Jessica Simpson entertained President and Mrs. Bush for ‘An American Celebration at Ford’s Theater’ on Sunday. Asked if she was nervous about the performance, Simpson told ‘Extra’: “I can perform in front of 80,000 people, but if it’s in front of the president, there’s something about that that makes me nervous. But last time I sang at the White House I messed up the words to ‘God Bless America’ and he winked at me, so now I don’t care anymore, if I mess up I know I get a wink.”
Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ And Jessica Simpson’s ‘With You’

I am sick of everyone talking about the two new songs from Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson as if they are the best thing to hit airwaves. The only reason both of these songs are gaining so much exposure is because clear channel is sponsoring Britney’s tour and they own like 90% of all radio stations out there. MTV also has a hand in this cause they play the songs like every hour, if they did this to more talented people then they would see airplay increases as well. Honestly can you actually say that these two songs are vocally challenging, I would say no. Anyone could get ahead if you had two of the biggest media outlets shoving you down the public’s throat.

March 12, 2004 – Jessica Simpson tells ‘Extra’ she learned a bittersweet lesson after her appearance in Boston where she was nearly mobbed by fans, who numbered in the 1000s. “People were jumping on our cars, I felt like I was Elvis Presley or something,” Simpson explained. “I was just scared that somebody was going to bust through the windows.

It was very big day for me.”
