Jessica Simpson says Nick Lachey took her breath away when they first met. “I’ve been obsessed with ‘Take My Breath Away’ for a very long time,” Simpson tells MTV News. “The first time Nick hugged me, I had to back up against the wall,” Simpson said. “It sounds corny, but it literally took the breath out of me. I would break out in hives, be all nervous, because he completely consumed every inch of me.”
She told of how she once set the mood with what would become the couple’s special song. “We were in the car, it was pouring down rain, and I just went in for the kiss,” Simpson said. “And in the middle of it, I stopped the whole kiss, and put on ‘Take My Breath Away,’ because he was the guy who took my breath away. I wanted that moment to be that romantic scene, [from ‘Top Gun’] and it was.” You can also watch the making of the video for ‘Take My Breath Away’ on Tuesday, April 6, at 6:00 pm ET. on MTV.
Nick Lachey Wants To Be Mayor Of Cincinnati
March 12, 2004 – Globe magazine reports 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey is contemplating a bid for the job of Mayor of Cincinnati, where he grew up as a child after moving from his Harlan, Kentucky birthplace. “I see my hometown going through a bunch of sh**,” Lachey said. “It’s a town that’s asleep and nobody cares – they just want to get by.” Lachey’s hopes may be dashed by his wife’s reluctance to move to the Ohio city from their home in Los Angeles. Nick believes the town is “starting to get a little bit of a bad rap” and he truly believes he can “make a difference” by making a mayoral bid after his music career is over.
