Jessica Simpson Is A TV Hit, But Her Album Is A Flop

Jim Farber of the New York Daily News profiled how despite the television success of on the MTV reality show ‘Newlyweds’, the success hasn’t translated to sales of her latest album ‘In This Skin’, which after just five weeks has flopped to No. 62 in Billboard, moving a tepid 16,087 copies in the last week. The sales have prompted Universal to delay the release of Jessica’s husband Nick Lachey’s debut solo effort ‘SoulO’ to November 11th.

    …which is truly sad…. Jessica has such a great voice, TONS of potential, but the CD is crap! Yes, I own it, but I only paid like $7 for it…. All it talks about is how much she loves her husband, and how much she loves to “love” her husband….. Love Jessica S. to death, but this album is sad.

    I used to feel bad for Jessica. She used to seem so nice and sweet, and to me it just seemed like she didn’t have management capable of promoting her talent correctly. Her show changed my perspective of her. First, it showed me that Jessica’s management does know how to promote, since the show is doing fantastic and everyone knows and cares about it. Second, it showed me that Jessica is probably more to blame for her flop of an album than anyone else. The show made it clear that she’s utterly dumb and has little knowledge of what goes on in the real world. I wouldn’t be surprised if her people came up with some genuinely good ideas to get her record sales up, but that she rejected them because of her stupidity and naivete.

    Damn I didn’t know it was doing THAT badly.. That’s rather funny. looks like all the energy she’s putting into her little show isn’t helping her sales. Christina Aguilera is still moving 30000-40000 albums a week and her album was released a YEAR ago!.. Jessica really needs to get some better writers and producers cause her music sucks.. her voice isn’t the problem

    Poor Jessica! I think she’s one of the best female singers out there today….but I guess the world doesn’t think so. I thought peeps would run out and buy the CD after seeing the show..ya know, because publicity. it didn’t help for them I guess. but for O-Town, their show making the band…helped land their CD at #5 the first week out. Just thought I’d plug that in! but anyhow….after seeing the show and when she talked about sex all the time, I stopped viewing her songs in the way I always did. suddenly her songs became…well, dirty. I don’t know….she’s just not the same to me anymore.

    What can you say? Sometimes the truly talented gets overlooked. It happens all the time. I just wonder if she was a ho like Britney or Christina, how far would the album go? Crappy songs aside, how far would the album go if she were a slut?

    Jessica is NOT talented and THIS proves it as she worked with DIFFERENT writers this time INCLUDING HERSELF, but since she cannot put together coherent sentences no wonder she can’t write a damn song. Oh and it’s not JESSICA who turns down the ideas of Sony, it’s her DADDY who does and she ALWAYS does what her daddy tells her to.
