Jessica Simpson Addresses Britney Spears Comparisons

Jessica Simpson and 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey were on CNN’s Larry King Live on Tuesday with fill-in host Ryan Seacrest.

Asked about being compared to Britney Spears, Simpson said, “I have been my whole life. Since I was 12 years old, auditioning for the Mickey Mouse Club, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears both beat me out. You know, I froze in the audition, I forgot everything, and I ended up not getting it. And then, you know, I signed with Columbia, and I hear – when I was 17, and I hear that Britney signed with Jive, you know, the week before, and Christina signed with RCA the week after, and it like came back around, and then the media has always kept it. So it’s been like this ongoing thing for me, to try to differentiate myself and try to separate myself, and I try to do that with my image and I try to do that, you know, through love and through the kind of music that I sing, and hopefully, people can just get over the comparisons. Even though they’re great comparisons, you know, I’d rather be known for Jessica Simpson.”

    You know what….i have an all new found respect for them both. I also feel sorry for Jessica because every little mistake she makes is gonna be caught on television and replayed over and over again. I mean….we all have had our stupid moments and like Jessica said..shows like that are always edited weird. and nick is hot…. I mean really hot. he’s the hot smart type guy. and compared to a ditz who shall go unnamed…Jessica doesn’t talk like an idiot. she handled the interview very well. so did nick. and nick’s video looked cool…and Jessica’s new song is pretty good too. and I definitely agree about the statements she made about pop and urban music. she’s very opinionated and I respect that.

    People like to hate on Jessica, but the fact is…she can OBVIOUSLY out sing Britney and she’s just as good as Christina. She may be “ditzy” but she’s got a voice.

    She can definitely sing, but I don’t know…something about the sort of songs she sings bore me. I know she tried different stuff on the “Irresistible” album, but I didn’t like those. I got a sneak listen to of “In This Skin” and it’s not bad…it’s just hard for her to get herself out there amongst the other major pop starlets (Britney and Christina).

    OBVIOUSLY? WHERE is it obvious she can out sing ANYONE? She’s not popular for her SINGING she’s popular for being a complete and UTTER MORON!
