In it Jessica reveals that in spite of her previous repeated assertions that ‘Irresistible is Jessica Simpson’ her label, Sony, made her make that album and that posing for Maxim, a men’s magazine, was not her idea. Jessica said, “That last record, I mean, it wasn’t me. Like my last record, even ‘Irresistible’. It was a great song and it was a great song for me. But, you know, I don’t think that most of that record, if the label wasn’t telling me that I needed to do it, I wouldn’t have done it.”
