TRL: Number ten, Kelis, “milkshake”. Your like that song?
>> I do. I never heard it before.
TRL: Very sexy song. Just like Jessica Simpson. Very sexy Jessica Simpson today. Let’s talk of “Newlyweds” because you’re shooting the second season.
>> That’s right. January 1st, it debuts.
TRL: You had what you defined as blonde moments in the first season. Are you trying to like make sure — do you speak much?
>> I haven’t really censored myself because that’s been the success of the show. So what flies flies, you know?
>> It just happens.
TRL: Any blonde moments so far?
>> That’s the thing, I didn’t remember chicken of the sea. I didn’t remember that moment. I’m sure that there will be moments I didn’t remember that I said something stupid that I was being stupid and I thought I was being smart.
TRL: You had some down time between the two seasons. What do you and Nick do when the cameras are turned off?
>> We make out. Because we never really have time to do that.
[ Cheers and applause ]
TRL: That’s true.
>> We don’t like to be cheesy.
TRL: Well, you don’t welcome back to be Paris Hilton.
>> Exact limit
Well, come on, no videotape for us.
TRL: That was a joke!
>> No videotape for us.
TRL: So you hang out and have a good time?
>> Hang out.
TRL: Normal things that a couple would do?
TRL: Very nice. A live performance from Jessica Simpson is coming up. Holding steady at number nine, it’s no doubt with “it’s my life.”
[ Cheers and applause ]
TRL: No doubt, at number nine. “It’s my life.” D and Jessica are backstage kicking it.
TRL: That’s right. We’re taking a break right now.
TRL: Hi, guys. Damien hanging out here with Jessica Simpson and barely into your top ten, we have a hot, hot show for you today. Let’s back into it with Jessica. We know you’re a great singer, you’re kind of dipping your foot into the acting pool now.
>> I am.
TRL: You’re doing to be genie in “I dream of Genie”
>> It’s not confirmed but that’s the dream role I want.
TRL: What drew you to this?
>> I don’t know. Just the whole — I mean, that would be so fun to, you know, make wishes come true.
TRL: Okay. You made this young man’s wish come true today on the show. Hi, America. Let’s also talk about like if this acting thing really does take off for you, and if, you know, if your singing career is any indication it will, what you would be in ten years, more singing or acting?
>> I think a mixture. Singing is my number one passion but I would love to be doing movies, romantic comedies.
TRL: Yeah. The machine is really rolling off the success of “newlyweds.” Are you getting a lot of scripts and stuff?
>> Yeah. Lots of stuff is being thrown at me which is so fun.
TRL: Yeah. Must be nice.
TRL: That’s a TRL premiere. Beyonce Knowles. 1-800-mtv to vote for that. Q and V hanging out in the audience right now.
TRL: I liked that.
>> It was hot.
TRL: Jessica, you’re doing the Osbournes Christmas special and you and Ozzy sing “Winter Wonderland” together.
>> Yeah. I sang with Ozzy. It was great.
TRL: Working with Ozzy Osbourne, you know, obviously a legend, Black Sabbath, all that good stuff. What was its like going in there your preconceived notions about the guy and then meeting him?
>> He was a wonderful man. And I just — I didn’t really know what to expect because i only knew him from watching “The Osbournes.” But he was so together, well put together. Talked great. Did everything great. So I was — I was — it was awesome to be in the same room with him.
TRL: But you told me backstage, you first walked up to him and what happened?
>> Well, he was listening to the recording and he said, wow, you have a great voice, do you play any gigs? I was like, well, kind of. I have a record deal.
TRL: Did you run into Sharon too?
>> Yeah. She was making out with my husband. It was very, very funny.
TRL: Are you all right with that?
>> Oh, yeah.
TRL: Why can Sharon Osbourne get away with that?
>> There’s something about her. She can get away with it.
TRL: I saw this clip, Ozzy, that try to get him to sing a Christmas carol and he’s like, no way.
>> He was like bah-humbug.
TRL: It is very funny.
>> The Christmas song that you wanted to do that was a dark Christmas song?
