Jessica Search Interest Continues Decline
May 19, 2002 – Searches for Jessica Simpson continued to decline in the month of April on pay-per search engine Overture.com. The Texan singer had just over 70,000 searches for her name, putting her well behind Britney Spears’ 2.6 million searches, and Mandy Moore’s 89,000 searches. Pop newcomers Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch also received more search interest than Simpson.
Jessica’s religious family would likely recoil at the type of searches performed, with nude interest outdrawing interest in her lyrics or her engagement to 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey. The pop star’s most searched song lyric was for ‘I Wanna Love You Forever’ with 115 queries.
