"There's a cut on the album, 'Hot Like Fire', that I think will take people by surprise", she says of the self-assured hip-hop-flavored cut produced by Cory Rooney. "It's a hard-core 'attitude' song. You might not even recognize my voice at first. It's totally raw and intense. It's a shake-your-hips kind of song. I love it."
Singer Jessica Simpson used to leave notes on her mirror telling herself how
beautiful she was.
Simpson, who stars in MTV's "Newlyweds" with husband Nick Lachey, says she was never comfortable with her looks and had to take drastic measures to improve her self-esteem, femalefirst.com reported.
But Jessica, 24, says when she met Nick she didn't need the notes any more because he made her feel beautiful.
"I didn't start feeling comfortable in my own skin until I was 20. That's when you begin to accept your flaws because you can't change them," the website quoted her as saying.
"Dukes of Hazzard" star, Jessica Simpson discussed her tits during promotion
for the new flick reports MSNBC.
"Mine are definitely real," she revealed, according to SkyNews. "At school my boobs were bigger than all my friends' and I was afraid to show them. Now, I feel they make my outfits look better. They're like an accessory."
Joe Simpson, her manager/father/ex-minister said "When we were in church work my daughters wore bikinis and short shorts," he said. "People in the church got mad at me then but we believe that what's in the heart is more important than what's on the outside."
